GRANT, for good service performed to the K. hitherto and to be performed in the future, to James Bellew of 1½ carucates of land, with appurtenances, in co. Louth that belonged to the abbot and convent of Nynore,1 and also 1 carucate of land, with appurtenances, in le Curragh near Dundalk, which belong to the abbot and convent of Armagh, in the K.'s hand because the said abbot and convent are mere Irishmen, dwelling among the Irish [inter Hibernicos conversantes], and they are accustomed to spend the issues and profits derived from those lands among the said Irish in their aid, maintenance and relief. He is to have the lands for life if the lands remain in the K.'s hand that long, rendering 40s p.a. at the K.'s Ex. of Ire. at Easter and Michaelmas by equal portions.1

The K. has been informed that various citizens and merchants of Dublin, both themselves and through their servants daily wandering bought large quantities of wheat and other grain in various part of Ire. for the purpose of trading it, and they deposited it in granaries not permitting it to be sold at a reasonable price. As a result, all saleable grain is raised to a higher price than normal and it is feared that many damages and perils may come about from the impoverishment of the K.'s citizens and subjects. Wishing to provide a remedy for this and having faith in their loyalty and prudence, the K. has appointed Nicholas Serjaunt, mayor of Dublin, Thomas Mareward and John More, to search all granaries and places where grain has been deposited, and in what way and from whom the corn was bought (corn for their households excepted); and they are further to proclaim in the said town that no citizen or merchant or anyone else is to buy grain in any fairs except those markets in the said town, nor to store grain in granaries under threat of forfeiture of the said grain; and all bribers [imbraciatores], forestallers or baggers who act contrary to the said proclamation shall be imprisoned until the K. orders for their release. They are to certify under their seal to the governor and keeper concerning those who act contrary to the proclamation, from time to time.

Wishing that the said sum in arrears be levied and paid to William [Windsor], now governor of Ire., and having faith in their worthiness and industry, the K. has appointed George Telyng,1 John Herdman, Henry Molyng, John Bocom, Richard John and John Dexcestre of Corbally to levy, collect and receive the said sum, and to arrest all those who rebel against the said collection and have them before the governor, and to distrain those who owe payment. They are to be diligent in collecting and receiving the said sum, and to have it at the Ex. on Monday after the feast of Palms [16 Apr. 1375] without further delay, paying it to Robert Lughteburgh, the K.'s receiver appointed for this. They are to omit nothing under pain of £10 to be levied for the K.'s use. ORDER to the seneschal of the liberty of Meath, the sheriff of the crosslands of the same, and all others of that county to be answering, advising and aiding to them.

'Grant, for good service performed by his beloved and faithful cousin, Sir James Butler, e. Ormond, in the K.'s land of Ire., to him and Elizabeth his wife, of the manors of Dounbryn and Grenhagh in Ire., together with knights' fees, advowsons of churches and all other things pertaining to the same manors, which have come into the K.'s hand as escheats because Eustace, s. of Arnold le Poer, who lately held them of the said earl, committed a treason for which he was hanged, as was found by inquisition taken by Edmund Lorence, the K.'s esc. of Ire.; to have and to hold to the said James3 and Elizabeth, and the heirs male of their bodies, of the K. and his heirs, or of other chief lords of the fees, by due and accustomed services. So long, however, that if the said James and Elizabeth die without heirs male [etc.], after their death the said manors [etc.] shall revert to the K. and his heirs.

The K., Westminster, 6 Feb. 1375. By p.s.'

Kildare by invasions of the Irish enemies and rebels of those parts, mainly by default of men of that county who hold lands, tenements, rents or lordships in the marches of that county and refuse to live there to resist the said rebels, the K. has appointed Maurice s. of Thomas, e. Kildare, to compel all the men of that county who hold lands [etc.] in Arst and Alon, and the marches of Kildare, to proceed in person by a certain day decided by Maurice, to the said marches and to stay there on their lordships, or to send sufficient people in their place to stay there for their salvation and to resist the said enemy. He is to arrest those who refuse to do this, keep them in custody and bring them before the governor if they refuse to act according to the premises; and he is to be diligent in these matters. The sheriff of co. Kildare and all other faithful of the county are to be intendant to Maurice in the foregoing.

The K. has considered the damages, destructions, depredations and fires often perpetrated on the town of Kilmallock both by his Irish and English enemies of the parts neighbouring that town and rebels. Wishing, therefore, to strengthen the said town, which provides a good place for the K.'s lieges surrounding it by resisting bravely all manner of dangers, GRANT and LICENCE, of the K.'s special grace, to the provost and community of that town to take and have, by themselves or their deputies, the following customs from articles for sale coming to that town or passing the same town for the purpose of selling, to have from the date of these presents for ten years in aid, relief, improvement and fortification of the enclosure of the town with a stone wall, viz.:

from each crannock of any kind of grain or malt for sale, 1d;
from each crannock of salt for sale, 2d; […].1

ORDER to take and have those customs in the said form for ten years, at the end of which term the customs shall cease and be removed entirely. Such that the money derived [from the customs] shall be spent faithfully on the murage of the said town, and not otherwise. The K. wishes also that at the end of each year during that term that an account should be rendered faithfully by them on this before the venerable father in Christ, the bishop of Limerick, and the mayor of the city of Limerick, and not at the K.'s Ex. of Ire.

Various foreign merchants frequenting the town of Galway with their merchandise decline to come to the K.'s city of Cork to pay their customs due to the K. there from merchandise because of the danger of sailing and the difficulty of the crossing by sea to the port of that city these days, and frequently they travel to various foreign parts without having paid the K.'s customs, to the K.'s grave prejudice. Therefore, wishing to provide for the K.'s advantage and also in relief of the burgesses and merchants of the said town of Galway, so that they and other merchants of Connacht might no longer suffer any damages or losses by shipwreck in going towards the city of Cork to pay their customs, as was customary before this time, the K. has thought fit to ordain by advice of his council in his land of Ire. that the K.'s staple of wool, hides and wool-fells, and any other merchandise whatever, due of old at the said town, shall be here for the term of three years next coming, and that the said burgesses and merchants of Galway and Connacht and others who come to the said town with any merchandise shall pay their customs there, and not at the K.'s said city [of Cork] for the said time, notwithstanding that the said staple ought to be at the said city and also at Dublin, Drogheda and Waterford and not elsewhere in the K.'s land of Ire. according to the ordinance made on this: not wishing that the said burgesses and merchants of the town of Galway and of Connacht or any of them, or their heirs, should be troubled by the K. or his heirs or any of his ministers. And after the end of the said three years, all customs shall be paid at the city of Cork and not at the town of Galway, unless the K. provides otherwise concerning this.

To the sheriff of Dublin, keepers of the peace and the marches and other bailiffs, serjeants, subserjeants, and others of the marches, and faithful people.

Reginald Bernevalle was in the K.'s service in the company of Stephen [Valle], bp Meath, in various parts of Ire., as a result of which he could not come to musters, parliaments, hues and cries within co. Dublin, nor could he reside in the marches of that county with other tenants for its salvation and defence, nor do other things ordered by reason of his tenancy within the county. Wishing, therefore, that Reginald is not troubled in any way by reason of his absence for the time he was with the said bishop, the K. has exonerated and acquitted him of all these things. ORDER that, for as long as Reginald remains in the company of that bishop, they are not to amerce, impede or trouble him by reason of the premises.

To all sheriffs, keepers of the peace, bailiffs, serjeants, subserjeants, people of the marches, and other faithful people concerned.

In consideration of the great expenses, various costs and excessive burdens that Christopher, prior of the house of St John the Baptist outside the New Gate of Dublin, has incurred and ought to incur out of the lands he holds in pure and perpetual alms, both in co. Dublin and elsewhere, for the sustenance of various chaplains and divine clerks who celebrate divine services daily in the church of that house for the health of the K. and the souls of his progenitors, and the souls of all the faithful departed, as well as the sustenance of various paupers and infirm persons who lie continually in beds in the said house, and also on account of the poverty of his house and its possessions, the K. has granted that the prior may be quit and exonerated of coming to the marches of co. Dublin or those of other counties with his posse, to reside and defend his said lands there with men-at-arms [etc.], and of coming to parleys [parliamenta], musters, hues and cries in the said counties or the marches of the same [etc.]. ORDER not to compel the prior to come to the said marches, or parliaments [etc.], nor to trouble him concerning the above, during pleasure.1
