They [the said justices &c.], however, because it was found by a certain inquisition, which Thomas, bishop of Hereford, then guardian (custos) of Ireland, demanded to be taken at the suit of the said Maurice, who alleged (suggerentis) that all the said lands &c. in Ireland, of which the said Giles died seised in fee, were held of the said Maurice, and not of the king, and who schemed (machinantis) to disinherit the king of the said wardship, that the said lands &c. were held of the said Maurice, on pretext of which inquisition he detains and occupies them, applying the issues to his own use, have not taken care (non curastis) to make the pourparties of the said earls, William and John, and of their wives, of the said lands &c. as the custom is, and to deliver the same to them, although the king and his progenitors have been seised without interruption of the wardship and marriage of the heirs of the said inheritance, and of the wardship of the lands &c. thereof, from the time the same came to the hands of the ancestors of the said Giles, and to those heirs who were minors, and of the homage of the same heirs successively, from heir to heir, as fully appears by the rolls and memoranda in the king's treasury in Ireland, but have permitted the same lands &c. to be detained for a long time out of the king's hand, and still permit it, to the king's hurt and damage, and to the manifest disherison of his crown; wherefore the king has been prayed to cause fitting remedy to be provided, as well for himself as for the said heirs. They are commanded, if on examination of the rolls and other memoranda, they find that the said lands &c. in the parts of Tothemond and elsewhere in Ireland are held of the king, or partly of him and partly of others, and that, by reason of the king's prerogative, after the deaths of the said Giles and his ancestors, the king and his progenitors were seised of the wardship of all the said lands &c., and of the homage of the said heirs in times past, to cause the said lands &c. to be resumed into the king's hand, and to cause due and speedy justice to be done to the said earls, William and John, and their wives, on their suit for restitution of the said lands &c. as of right, and according to the law and custom of Ireland, causing all those who have occupied the said lands, &c. from the time of the said Giles's death, to come to the said exchequer, and to answer for the issues of all the said lands &c. from the time of the said death, certifying into the chancery of England what they have done in the matter.
