I.
Ireland. Inq. taken at Dublin, Monday before St. Gregory the Pope, 8 Edw. I.
Ardnesylach. Lands &c. (unspecified) were held by the said John on the day he died of the gift of Sir John son of Thomas, and upon his death the said Geoffrey entered and had good seisin. But Richard de la Rokele, then justiciary of Ireland, ejected him, and seized them into the king's hand and for this cause:—The Lord John, king of England, gave to Sir Thomas, son of Anthony, and his heirs in fee farm his lands of Decies and Desmond for 250 marks yearly; he had five daughters, of whom the fifth died without heir; of the others Gerard de Rup' had one to wife, Geoffrey de Norrach another, Stephen de (sic) Archedekne the third, and John son of Thomas the fourth; the said Gerard, Geoffrey and Stephen were against the king in the battle of Kyldare, for which they could not have favour from him for their lands, but John son of Thomas was with the king, and had for his part of the lands a portion yearly, amount unknown, from the exchequer of Dublin. Afterwards the said John crossed the sea twice or thrice to the Lord Edward seeking all the said lands for 500 (sic) yearly, which the Lord Edward granted him, and he had duplicate charters and letters patent, and a writ of seisin to the justiciary of Ireland, who answered that he would give no seisin because the Lord Edward and his council were openly deceived, until he should confer with the Lord Edward's council &c.; but the said John said he would make no delay, but summoned all the free tenants &c. of the whole country, and showed them the king's charter and letter patent, and they did fealty to him; thus he entered into seisin of his own authority and so died seised. The said John used to offer his rent to the barons of the exchequer at Dublin, who refused to receive it because he never had seisin by the justiciary or other bailiffs of the Lord Edward; and for this reason the said justiciary took the lands of Ardnesylach, with all the other lands of Decies and Desmond into the hand of the Lord Edward. The said Geoffrey as brother and next heir of the said John has right to the lands of Ardsylach by the feoffment of the said John son of Thomas.
Endorsed:—It seems he ought to be restored, saving right to the king or anyone, and the king will prosecute him that he may have recovery against his feoffor; and he shall answer when restored without essoin.
