To the king's lieutenant in Ireland. Order, upon petition of John Cruys esquire, son and heir of Walter Cruys, to summon the parties before him, and others whom he shall see fit, to hear arguments on either side, and do justice to the petitioner according to law and the custom of Ireland, that for lack thereof no second loud complaint come to the king's ears; as his complaint shews that Christopher Halywode of Ireland esquire and his father (now deceased) did for thirty years past unduly and wrongfully withhold his heritage, namely of the towns of Samoundston, Currokston, Balybought, Malahowe and Wyrgauneston in Ireland, which his ancestors peaceably held as their own time out of mind, and which ought to pertain by inheritance to the petitioner, that when King Richard II was last in Ireland he did claim his right to the same, but might have no determination thereof, for that the said Christopher was then within age and in ward, and that the cause is still pending, to his hurt and peril.
