Note.—Seal missing. Cords of green and crimson silk. This Charter is in
Henry, by the grace of God King of England and France, and
Lord of Ireland, unto all to whom the present letters shall come,
greeting. We have inspected the Charter of the Lord Edward,
formerly King of England, Our grandfather, made in these words:
[Here follows as in the original Charter.] Now We, ratifying and
allowing the grant and confirmation aforesaid, do for Us and Our
heirs, as much as in Us lies, accept and approve and now do grant
and confirm them unto the Burgesses and men of the said Vill of
Kerdyf and their successors, as the aforesaid Charters reasonably
testify, and as they and their predecessors have heretofore reasonably
used and enjoyed those liberties and quittances. In witness whereof
We have caused these Our Letters to be made Patent. Witness
Myself at Westminster, on the twentieth day of February in the
second year of Our reign [1400.]
