Tipperary. The said Richard the father purchased divers tenements in the parts of Cassell and Tiperary of divers men, and held the niece of Reymund de Burgo, a magnate in those parts, as his concubine, of whom he begat the said Richard, and when he was 7 years old, he gave him 2 carucates land in Kilsegan, which are in the king’s hand, 160a. land in Balibohull, worth 5 marks but charged with 5 marks yearly rent to Matthew Milet, of whom the king afterwards purchased in fee, 24a. land in Killiveran, 30a. land in Dyngeldergan, 39a. land in Lisbrenan, and 17 1/2a. land in Hethton and Cnocbrek, from which are due 7s. yearly rent to Lady Maud Wodeford, and assigned to him the said Sir Reymund as guardian, and fully divested himself of the said tenements. Immediately after the death of Richard the father, who was receiver in Ireland for Lady Eleanor sometime queen of England, William de Estden then treasurer of Ireland, took all these tenements into the king’s hand, because he believed the said Richard to be answerable to the queen for a debt; and afterwards the king, by John Wogan, Justiciary of Ireland, gave them, excepting 2 carucates lands in Kilsegan, together with the manor of Rathcon, to Sir Geoffrey le Bret in exchange for the manor of Le Carryk.
Return from the justiciary of Ireland, that the sheriff of Typerary has sent an inquisition sewn to this writ, yet from the memoranda of the exchequer of Dublin it appears that Ralph de Geyton, brother of Richard the father, asserting himself to be the heir of the said Richard, purchased the said tenements out of the king’s seisin, but afterwards the said treasurer so wrought with him that he enfeoffed the late king Edward therein by charter, and afterwards quit-claimed to the king all his right there, who enfeoffed Geoffrey le Bret as aforesaid. The tenements of Kilsegan remain still in the king’s hand, the said Richard the younger being at that time under age, and he has quit-claimed to the king and the said Sir Geoffrey all his right in Rathcon and Balibohull, because the king has granted him the tenement of Kilsegan.
