14.2. Edward the third.

Edward the third.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 _VNneth was the businesse a|bout 1326 the witches at an end, when it was signified, that a gentleman of the familie of the Otoolies in Leinster, na|med Adam Duffe, possessed by some wicked spirit of error, 1327 denied obstinatelie the incar|nation of our sauior, the trinitie of persons in the v|nitie of the Godhead, & the resurrection of the flesh; as for the holie scripture, he said it was but a fable: the virgin Marie he affirmed to be a woman of dis|solute Adam Duffe an heretike. life, and the apostolike sée erronious. For such assertions he was burnt in Hogging greene beside Dublin. About the same time, Fitzarke Macm [...]rch, and sir Henrie Traherne were taken prisoners. In the yeare following, the lord Thomas Fitziohn erle of Kildare, and the lord Arnold Powre & William earle of Ulster were sent ouer into Ireland, & Ro|ger Outlaw prior of saint Iohns of Ierusalem in Ireland, commonlie called the prior of Kilmainan, was made lord iustice. This man by reason of vari|ance that chanced to rise betwixt the Giraldins, the The prior of Kilmainan lord iustice. Butlers, and Birminghams, on the one side; and the Powres & Burghs on the other, for terming the earle of Kildare a rimer, to pacifie the parties called a par|lement, wherein he himselfe was faine to make his purgation of a slander imposed to him, as suspected of heresie.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 The bishop of Ossorie had giuen an information Arnold Powre accu|sed of heresie. against Arnold le Powre, conuented & conuicted in EEBO page image 70 his consistorie of certeine hereticall opinions, but bi|cause the beginning of Powrs accusation concerned the iustices kinsman, and the bishop was mistrusted to prosecute his owne wrong, and the person of the man rather than the fault: a daie was limited for the iustifieng of the bill, the partie being apprehen|ded and respited therevnto. This dealing the bishop (who durst not stirre out of Kilkennie to prosecute his accusation) was reputed parciall: and when by meanes hereof the matter hanged in suspense, he infamed the said prior as an abbettor and fauourer of Arnolds heresie. The prior submitted himselfe to the triall, and therevpon were seuerall proclama|tions made in court, that it should be lawfull to anie man to come into the court, and to inferre, accuse, and declare what euidence he could, against the lord iustice: but none came. Then passed a decrée by the councell, commanding all bishops, abbats, priors, and the maiors of Dublin, Corke, Limerike, Wa|terford, and Droghedagh, the shirifs, knights, & se|neschals of euerie shire, to appeare at Dublin. From amongst all these, they appointed six inquisitors, which examining the bishops and other persons a|foresaid singularlie one by one, found that with an vniuersall consent they deposed for the prior, affir|ming that (to their iudgements) he was a zelous and a faithfull child of the catholike church. In the meane time, Arnold le Powre the prisoner deceased in the castell, & bicause he stood vnpurged, long he laie vn|buried.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 In the yeare one thousand thrée hundred twentie and nine, Iohn de Birmingham earle of Louth, and 1329 The earle of Louth slaine. his brother Peter, with many other of that surname, and Richard Talbot of Malahide were slaine on Whitsun euen at Balibragan by men of the coun|trie. Also the lord Thomas Butler, and diuerse other The lord Butler slaine. noblemen were slaine by Mac Gogoghdan & other Irishmen néere to Molinger. For the Irish as well in Leinster as in Meth made insurrections in that season, and so likewise did they in Mounster vnder the leading of Obren, whom William earle of Ul|ster and Iames earle of Ormond vanquished. So outragious were the Leinster Irish, that in one church they burnt foure score innocent soules, asking no more but the life of their priest then at masse, whome they notwithstanding sticked with their [...]aue|lins, spurned the host, and wasted all with fire: nei|ther forced they of the popes iuterdiction, nor anie ec|clesiasticall censures denounced against them (mat|ters of no small consideration among them name|lie in those daies) but maliciouslie perseuered in the course of their furious rage, till the citizens of Wer|ford somewhat tamed them, and slue foure hundred of them in one skirmish, the rest flieng were all dren|ched in the water of Slane. In the yeare one thou|sand 1330 thrée hundred and thirtie, the earle of Ulster with a great armie made a iournie against Obren, and the prior of Kilmainan lord iustice put Maurice The prior of Kilmainan lord iustice. Fitzthomas earle of Desmond in prison in the mar|shalseie, out of the which he [...]éelie escaped, and the lord Hugh Lacie returned into Ireland, and obtei|ned the kings peace and fauour.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 4 5 In the yeare one thousand thrée hundred thirtie and one, the earle of Ulster passed ouer into Eng|land, 1331 and great slaughter was made vpon the Irish in Okenslie. Also the castell of Arclo was taken by the Irishmen, and great slaughter made of the Eng|lish in the Cowlagh by Otothell and others. Also the lord Anthonie Lucie was sent ouer lord iustice into Ireland, and great slaughter was made of the Irish Anthonie Lu|cie lord iu|stice. at Thurlis by the knights of the countrie, & at Fin|nath in Meth, there were manie of them slaine by the English; but yet was the castell of Fernis taken and burnt by the Irish. On the feast daie of the as|sumption of our ladie, which falleth on the fiftéenth of August, Maurice Fitzthomas earle of Desmond The earle of Desmond ap|prehended. was apprehended at Limerike by the lord iustice, and sent vnto the castell of Dublin. Moreouer, the lord iustice tooke sir William Birmingham at Clo|mell by a wile, whilest he was sicke in his bed, & sent him (togither with his sonne Walter Birmingham) vnto the castell of Dublin, the thirtith of Aprill. In the yeare one thousand three hundred thirtie and two 1332 William Bir|mingham exe|cuted. the said sir William was hanged at Dublin, but Walter was deliuered by reason he was within or|ders.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 4 Campion following such notes as he hath séene, Campion. writeth that the death of this William Birming|ham chanced in time of the gouernement of Wil|liam Outlaw prior of Kilmainan, being lieutenant vnto Iohn lord Darcie, that was made lord iustice (as the said Campion hath noted) in the yeare one thousand thrée hundred twentie and nine. Although Marlburrow affirmeth that he came thither to beare that office, in the yeare one thousand thrée hundred thirtie and two, after the lord Lucie was discharged, as hereafter shall be recited. But whensoeuer, or vn|der whome soeuer Birmingham was executed, he was accounted an od knight, and such a one as for his valiancie, his match was not lightlie to be anie where found. The castell of Clonmore was taken the same yeare by the Englishmen, and the castell of Bonrath was destroid by the Irish of Thomond. Al|so Henrie de Mandeuill was taken and sent priso|ner to be safelie kept in Dublin. Likewise Walter Burgh with two of his bretheren were taken in Connagh by the earle of Ulster, and sent to the ca|stell of Norburgh.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 This yeare the lord Antonie Lucie was dischar|ged of his roome by the king, and so returned with his wife & children into England, and the lord Iohn The lord Darcie iustice Darcie was sent ouer lord iustice in Lucies place, and great slaughter was made vpon Bren Obren, and Mac Arthie in Mounster, by the English of that countrie. This Iohn Darcie (as should appeare by gifts bestowed vpon him by the king) was in singu|lar fauour with him. Amongst other things which he had of the kings gift, we find that he had the manors of Louth, and Baliogarie, and other lands in Ire|land The earl [...] of Ew. which belonged to the earle of Ew. And for that the said earle was a Frenchman, and tooke part with Philip de Ual [...]is the kings enimie, they were seized into the kings hand. The earle of Desmond 1333 [...] parlement. vpon suerties was set at libertie, and by the parle|ment holden at Dublin in this yeare 1333, was sent ouer into England vnto the king; and William erls of Ulster a yoong gentleman of twentie yeares of age, in going towards Knockfergus the seauenth of Iune, was slaine neere to the foords in Ulster, by his owne people, but his wife and daughter escaped into England: and the daughter was after maried vnto the lord Lionell the kings sonne. She deceased afterwards at Dublin, and left a daughter behind hir that was his heire, maried to Roger Mortimer earle of March, and lord of Trim.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 This murther was procured by Robert Fitz|martine Mandeuill, who was the first that presumed to giue to the earle anie wound. To reuenge the The earle of Ulster slaine. death of this earle of Ulster (slaine as yee haue heard beside Knockfergus) the lord iustice Darcie with a great power went into Ulster, to pursue those that through Mandeuils seditious tumults had so traito|rouslie murthered their lord. At his setting forward, the said iustice Darcie appointed sir Thomas Burgh Sir Thomas Burgh. treasuror, to gouerne as lieutenant to him in his absence. When the lord iustice had punished the trai|tors in Ulster, he passed ouer into Scotland, there to The lord iu|stice inuadeth Scotland. make warre against the Scots that were enimies EEBO page image 71 at that present to the king of England, and on the feast daie of saint Margaret, great slaughter was made of the Scots by the Irishmen: and so what by the king in one part, and the lord iustice of Ireland in another, Scotland was in maner wholie conque|red, and Edward Balioll was established king of Scotland. The lord iustice might haue possessed the Iles if they had béene worth the kéeping: into the which Iles, except the said Darcie and the earle of Sussex late lieutenant of Ireland, no gouernor at anie time yet aduentured. At Darcies comming backe into Ireland, and exercising the office of lord iustice, he deliuered Walter Birmingham out of the castell of Dublin.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 In the yeare 1336, and tenth of Edward the thirds 1336 reigne, on S. Laurence daie, the Irish of Connagh were discomfited and put to flight by the English|men of the countrie there, with the losse of one Eng|lishman, and ten thousand of the enimies. The lord Iohn Charleton baron came into Ireland to be lord 1337 Sir Iohn Charleton iustice. iustice, and with him his brother Thomas bishop of Hereford lord chancellor, and Iohn Rice lord treasu|ror, and two hundred Welshmen souldiors. The bi|shop was ordeined afterward lord iustice, in whose 1338 The bishop of Hereford lord iustice. time all the Irish of Ireland were at destance with the English, and shortlie brought againe into quiet by the earles of Kildare and Desmond. The lord Iohn Darcie by the kings letters patents was (du|ring 1340 Iohn Darcie lord iustice during life. life) ordeined lord iustice of Ireland, in the four|téenth yeare of king Edward the thirds reigne, which king abused by euill counsell and sinister infor|mers, called in vnder his signet roiall, the franchises, Calling in of liberties. liberties and grants, whatsoeuer had béene deuised, made and ratified to the realme of Ireland, and to euerie each person thereof. This reuoking of liber|ties was displeasantlie taken. The English of birth and the English of bloud falling at words, were di|uided into factions about it, for which contention the Irish still waited, so as the realme was euen vpon the point to giue ouer all, and to rebell. For redresse whereof, the lord iustice called a parlement at Du|blin, to the which the nobles refused to come, and in quiet wise assembled themselues togither at Kilken|nie, where they with the commons agréed vpon cer|teine questions to be demanded of the king by waie of supplication, signifieng in the same partlie their gréefes. Which questions were in effect as follow|eth.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 1 How a realme of warre might be gouerned Articles or questions. by one both vnskilfull and vnable in all warlike ser|uice?

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 How an officer vnder the king, that entered verie poore, might in one yeare grow to more exces|siue wealth, than men of great patrimonie and liue|lihood in manie yeares?

Compare 1577 edition: 1 3 How it chanced, that sith they were all called lords of their owne, that the souereigne lord of them all [...]as not a pennie the richer for them?

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 4 The cheefe of them that thus seemed to repine with the present gouernment, was Thomas Fitz|maurice earle of Desmond, through whose mainte|nance and bearing out of the matter, the countrie was in great trouble; so as it had not lightlie béene séene, that such contrarietie in minds and disliking had appeared amongst those of the English ra [...]e, in that realme at anie time before. Héerewith Rafe Uffort was sent ouer lord iustice, who bringing his 1343 Rafe U [...]ort lord iustice. wife with him, the countesse of Ulster arriued about the thirtéenth of Iulie. This man was verie rigo|rous, and through persuasion (as was said) of his wife, he was more [...]treame and couetous than o|therwise he would haue béene, a ma [...]er not to be forgotten. For if this ladie had béene as readie to The countesse [...]. Ulster. mooue hit husband to haue shewed himselfe gentle and mild in his gouernement, as she was bent to pricke him forward vnto sharpe dealings and rigo|rous procéedings, she had beene now aswell repor|ted of, as she is infamed by their pens that haue re|gistred the dooings of those times. But to the purpose. This Uffort lord iustice, in paine of forfeiture of all his lands, commanded the earle of Desmond to The earle of Desmond. make his personall appearance at a parlement, which he called to be holden at Dublin, there to be|gin the seuenth of Iune. And bicause the earle refu|sed to come acording to the summons, he raised the kings standard, and with an armie marched into Mounster, and there seized the earles possessions in|to the kings hands, letting them foorth to farme for an annuall rent vnto other persons.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 And whilest he yet remained in Mounster, he de|uised waies how to haue the earle of Desmond ap|prehended: which being brought to passe, he after|ward deliuered him vpon mainprise of these suerties whose names insue.

These (as yée haue heard) were bound for the earle. And bicause he made default, the lord iustice verelie tooke the aduantage of the bond a|gainst the mainpernours, foure of them onelie ex|cepted, the two earles and two knights.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 4 5 The lord iustice is charged with strict dealing by Uffort [...] spoken of. writers in this behalfe, for that the same persons had assisted him in his warres against Desmond. But trulie if we shall consider the matter with indiffe|rencie, he did no more than law and reason requi|red. For if euerie suertie vpon forfeiture of his bond should be forborne, that otherwise dooth his duetie, what care would men haue either to procure suerties or to become suerties themselues? But such is the affection of writers, speciallie when they haue con|ceiued anie misliking towards those of whome they take occasion to speake, so as manie a worthie man hath béene defamed, and with slander greatlie defa|ced in things wherein he rather hath deserued singu|lar commendation. But howsoeuer this matter was handled touching the earle of Desmond, vpon the death of the lord iustice, which insued the next yeare, Ioie concei|ued for the death of the lord iustice Uffort. bonfiers were made, and great ioy shewed through all the rel [...] of Ireland. His ladie verelie (as should appeare) was but a miserable woman, procuring him to extortion and briberie. Much he abridged the prerogatiues of the church, and was so hated, that euen in the sight of the countrie he was robbed without rescue by Mac Cartie, notwithstanding he gathered power, and dispersed those rebels of Ulster. Robert Darcie was ordeined iustice by the councell till the kings letters came to sir Iohn Fitzmaurice, 1346 Robert Dar|cie lord iustice who released Fitzthomas earle of Kildare left in du|rance by Uffort at his death.

In con|sideration of which courtesie shewed to his kinsman, the earle of Kildare, accompanied with diuerse lords, knights, and chosen horssemen, serued the king at EEBO page image 72 Calis, a towne thought impregnable, & returned af|ter the winning thereof in great pompe and [...]ollitie.

Great mortalitie chanced this yeare, as in other parts of the world, so especiallie in places about the seacoasts of England and Ireland. In the yeare following departed this 1349 life Alexander Bignor archbishop of Dublin. And the same yeare was Iohn de saint Paule consecra|ted Iohn de S.

His legacies to the poore and others, beside his liberalitie shewed in his life time, amounted to thrée thousand marks.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 In this season dwelled in Ulster a we [...]hie knight one sir Robert Sauage, who the rather to preserue Sir Robert Sauage. his owne, began to wall and fortifie his manor hou|ses with castels and piles against the Irish enimie, erhorting his he [...]re Henrie Sauage to applie that worke so beneficiall for himselfe & his posteritie. Fa|ther (quoth yoong Sauage) I remember the prouerbe Better a castell of bones than of stones. Where strength & courage of valiant men are prest to helpe vs, neuer will I (by the grace of God) cumber my selfe with dead walles. My fort shall be where soeuer yoong blouds be stirring, & where I find [...]oome to fight. The father in a fume let lie the building, and for|sware to go anie further forward in it But yet the want therof and such like hath béene the decai [...] as well of the Sauages, as of all the English, gentle|men in Ulster: as the lacke also of w [...]lled townes is one of the principall occasions of the rude wild|nesse in other parts of Ireland.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 This Sauage, hauing prepared an armie against the Irish, allowed to euerie souldier before they should buckle with the enimie, a mighty draught of Aqua vitae, wine, or old ale, and killed in prouision for their returne, beefe, venison, and fowle, great plentie: which dooing diuerse of his capteins misliked, bicause they considered the successe of warre to be vncerteine, and therefore esteemed it better policie to poison the cates, or to doo them awaie, than to keepe the same; and happilie to feed a sort of roges with such princelie food, if ought should happen to themselues in this aduenture of so few against so manie. Herat smiled the gentleman and said,

Tush ye are too full of enuie: this world is but an in, to the which ye haue no speciall interest, but are onelie tenants at the will of the Lord. If it please him to command vs from it as it were from our lodging, and to set other good fellowes in our roomes, what hurt shall it be for vs to leaue them some meat for their suppers? Let them hardlie win it & weare it. If they enter our dwellings, good manner would no lesse but to welcome them with such fare as the countrie breedeth, and with all my heart much good may it doo them. notwithstanding I presume so far vpon your noble courages, that verilie my mind giueth me we shall returne at night, & banket our selues with our owne store. And so did, hauing slain 3000 Irishmen.

Tur. time, and in the thrée and twentith yeare of king Edward the thirds reigne, order was taken that the Irish lords should remaine and dwell in their houses on the marches, to defend the subiects from inuasions of enimies. And further, proclama|tion went foorth, that no méere Irish borne should be made maior, bailiffe, porter, officer, or minister in anie towne or place within the English dominions: nor that anie archbishop, abbat, prior, or anie other being of the kings allegiance, vpon forfeiture of all that he might forfeit, should aduance anie that was méere Irish borne to the roome of a canon, or to haue anie other ecclesiasticall benefice that laie among the English subiects.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 To Maurice Thomas earle of Kildare, when he The earle of Kildare lord iustice. was ordeined lord iustice, the kings letters assigned in yearelie fee for his office 500 pounds, with condi|tion, that the said gouernour should find twentie great horsses to serue in the field, he himselfe to be the twentith man in going against the enimie: which allowance and conditions in those daies (so farre as Lionell duke of Clarence. I can gesse) should seeme to be ordinarie to the office. Lionell duke of Clarence sonne to king Edward the third, came ouer into Ireland to be lord iustice there, and was in right of his wife earle of Ulster. He published an inhibition to all of the Irish birth not once to approch his armie, nor to be in anie wise imploied in seruice of the wars. He vanquished O| [...]ren, but yet sudenlie (no man vnderstanding how) an hundred of his souldiers were wanting as they laie in garrison, the losse of whom was thought to be occasioned by that displeasant decree afore rehear|sed. Wherevpon he tooke better aduise, and receiued the Irish into like fauour, as other lieutenants had them in before that present, shewing a tender loue towards them all, and so euer after prospered in his affaires. He created diuerse knights, as Preston, now knowne by the name of the familie of Gor|manston, Holiewood, Talbot, Cusac, de la Hide, Patrike, Robert and Iohn de Fraxinis: all these being gentlemen of worthie [...]ame in [...]iualrie.
