Report to the Queen from the Treasury Lords on the petition of Sir Richard Cox, kt., and the report and letter thereon from the Revenue Commissioners, Ireland, and the Irish Lord Lieutenant respectively. The petitioner has done good service on several occasions and the English Plantation he is now carrying on at Dunmanway, co. Cork, will very much contribute to the quiet and settlement of that wild and desolate country and will be of advantage to the revenue by Excise and Hearthmoney and otherwise. We therefore advise a moderate abatement of quit rent which being provincially [by Provinces] charged upon the acre without regard to the quality of the land, falls very heavy on petitioner's lands, which are coarse and mountainous. On discourse with him we found he would be contented with the abatement of 64l. 10s.d., being the moiety of the present quit rents of the lands of Ballynicarig, Ardea, Baninumery, Kildee, Edencurra, Drumlina, Litter-gorman, Manbiganif, Kippagh, Kilcaskan, Budermin, Curbeg, Awe Dunmanway, Awe als Kilbany, Knockinoss, Knocks, Garanes alias Coxtown Killina, Maulrour, Lisbehogy, Lisbaliat, Drumerk and Ardenhan, being part of petitioner's lands.
