The portions of the Ormonde archives * included in this 
volume extend from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, 
and may be noticed in the order in which they are here printed. 

I. The earliest of the documents is a " certificate *' or address,t 
in JL643, fr<»n Anglo-Irish ''gentlemen possessioners/' and 
ecclesiastical dignitaries of Kilkenny, Tipperary, and Waterford, 
in ^^mmendation of James> Earl of Ormonde, then absent from 
Ireland. The writers extol tbe earl's exertions against the 
native Irish, his great attachment to the King, and dilate on 
the many tenefits conferred by him on loyal English subjects. 
" He helpeth," they write, " to bring tip, at his charges, their 
" children after the English sort, and commonly rideth in his 
" saddle with his servants, appointed after the fashion of Eng- 
" land He enforceth to his power, wherever he ruleth, the 
" inhabitants of the same to obey your Majesty's writs . • he 
" extirpeth and extinguisheth sundry the Irish laws, customs and 
" usages to his power ; he peopleth his possessions, as far as lieth 
*' in himi with men of English sort, manners, and conditions." 

The certificate is on parchment of large size. At foot of it 
are many signatures and seals, including those of the Archbishop 
of Cashel, the Bishops of Waterford and Ossory,. as well as of 
the chief magistrates of towns in Kilkenny and Tipperary. 

II Th^ collection entitled " Roy^l letters ''t opens with a. 
despatch; of 1551, from Kdward VI. and his Council to Thomas 
Earl o£ Ormonde. Tbia is followed by letters and documents of 
Philip and. Mary, James I., Chf^ries I., Queen Henrietta Maria, 
Chacles II., and James, Duke of York, subsequently James II 
Spine of these letters are of the time when the royal family of 
England were in exile on the continent. After the Restoration 
period there are letters here from Charles 11. and his brother

James, and letters of condolence from the former and Queen 
Catherine to the Duke of Ormonde on the decease of his dis- 
tinguished son Thomas Earl of Ossory, in 1680. The collection 
ends with warrants and orders from Queen Anne. 

III. Peers' letters : * Of these tlie earliest are from Thomas 
Earl of Sussex, 1573, Walter Earl of Essex, 1573, and Robert 
Earl of Essex, 1599. Among the writers of the letters here in 
the first half of the seventeenth century were Richard Boyle 
Earl of Cork, George Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury, Emer 
MacMahon, Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, John Bram- 
hall. Bishop of Derry, the Earl of Thomond, and Lord Taaffe. 
There is also a fragment of a letter which Henry Cromwell, 
while in Dublin, addressed to the Marchioness of Ormonde. Of 
later dates in this section are letters from English peers and 
from members of the peerage of Ireland. 

IV. The documents calendared in our fourth sectionf 
include letters and papers connected with Ireland in the 
reigns of Elizabeth, James I., Charles I., Charles II., and 
James II. 

Some of these papers supply information on the complicated 
and protracted legal contentions between James I., Walter, Earl 
of Ormonde, and Richard Preston. The King was much attached 
to Preston, created him a peer of Scotland, under the title of 
Baron of Dingwall, and arranged a marriage for him with 
Elizabeth Butler, sole child and heir of Thomas, the aged Earl 
of Ormonde. After the death of the latter, Sir Walter Butler, 
who succeeded to the earldom, took measures to secure the 
rights of his young grandson, James Butler, as the next male 
heir. To terminate the controversies and suits which thus 
arose, and to " prevent the wasting and decaying of the great 
*• and large possessions of the ancient and noble family" of 
Ormonde, the King, with the aid of the judges in England, under- 
took to act as arbitrator and the parties were bound by a legal 
instrument to accept his decision under a penalty of one hundred 
thousand pounds. The terms of the decision by the King, in 
October 1618, were opposed by Earl Walter as unjust to his 
grandson, and he suffered long imprisonment for his ^'obstinate

refasal " to " accomplish the award/* Earl Waltcr^s grandson 
eventually became the first Duke of Oimonde. 

From a letter in Latin, addressed by James I. to the Doge of 
Venice, it would appear that Lord Dingwall, at one time, con- 
templated entering the service of that State as commander of 
an English military force. 

In a dispatch here from Lord Salisbuiy and the Lords of the 
Council at London, we find special reference to Kilkenny Castle. 
It is," they wrote, " one of the ancientest houses of the Earl 
[of Ormonde] and the cfaiefest seat of that place, which his 
*' Majesty bath good reason to respect." The latest paper in 
this section is in relation to an " Irish lecture," for which, it was 
alleged, lands liad been settled on Trinity College, Dublin, by 
Sir Turlogh O'NeiU. 

V. Audley Mervyn's letters. Mervyn obtained lands in 
Ulster under the " Plantation " arrangements for that province. 
^s member for Tyrone in the Parliament at Dublin in 1640 he 
took a leading part in the movement for the impeachment of the 
Lord Chancellor and others. During the hostilities of 1641 in 
Ulster, Mervyn obtained a commission as colonel of a British 
regiment employed there, and was entrusted by Ormonde with 
the governorship of Londonderry. From that town the letters • 
before us were dated in 1644-5. They contain many references 
to persons and afiairs known to the writer, and are the only 
specimens hitherto published of Mervyn s correspondence. 

VI. Letters and papers, 1651-l7ll.t Amongst these axe 
letters of Charles II., Queen Henrietta Maria, Morley, Bishop of 
Winchester, commissioners of subsidy, mayors, sheriffs, and 
Protestant bishops in Ireland, John Wilson, recorder of London- 
derry, Charles Willoughby, M.D., and communications addressed 
to the second Duke of Ormonde. A catalogue in chronological 
order, with extracts from the most important of these documents 
is given at pages 95-97. 

VII. In the collection named '* Vei*ses "J are Latin, English, 
and French anagrams, chronograms, elegies, epigrams, epitaphs 
and satires, mainly on persons who had relations with Ireland. 
There are laudatory effusions on Charles I., Ormonde, and the

royalists with invectives against Cromwell aiid his followers. 
There is also a large pictorial address in Latin verse, presented 
to Ormonde on his coming to Kilkenny to negotiate for peace 
with the Iri^ Confederates. The address is ornamented with 
coloured drawings emblematical of the matters referred to in it. 
The decease of Ormonde's son, Thomas, Earl of Ossory, in 
1680, formed the theme of some of the productions before us. 
A letter is here extant addressed to Ormonde by Thomas 
Flatmad, whose " Pindarique ode " on the death of Ossory 
appeared at London in 1681. The Duke, it is stated, having read 
this ode, sent a diamond ring of great value as a {uresent to the 
author, flatman, in his letter before us, expresses his ddep 
gratitude to Ormonde for his ''unexpected princely favour/' 
and refers to Ossory as the '* glory and delight of the English 

VIIL Documents in relation to army in Ireland : * This 
valuable and unique set of original papers supplies new informa*- 
tion on the army in Ireland, and the persons and affairs in 
connexion with it from 1598 to 1651. There are here muster 
rolls of the regiments, with the names of the officers and their 
ranks. In some cases the niimes of soldiers are given as well as of 
the localities where they were stationed and of the services o^ 
which they were employed. Rates of pay, memoranda of arms, 
horses, and clothing are also carefully entered. 

Minute details appear here of the military measures in 
1642-3 for the pcotection of the city of Dublin. Particulars 
are given of the forces stationed in each street and locality, the 
houses asmgnedto officers, the points at which special guards and 
sentries were placed, and various' otiber matt^B connected witft 
the military aiTangement& Among the officers named in these 
papers was Algernon Sydney, whose biographers have given 
Utile information as to his movements in Ireland. 

The army documents before us extend from 1641 to the time 
of Ormonde's withdrawal from Ireland after his treaty with the 
commissioners of the Parliament of England in 1647. 

These documents are here followed by others of the same class 
in connexion with the forces in Ireland from the time immediately

snbsequeBt to Ormonde's retur a there as Viceroy in 1648 till he 
departed in 1650. 

JX. In this section* are calendared the contents of the Duke 
of Ormonde^s register of miUtary commissions, warrants, and 
(rtders issued by him, as Viceroy, from 1661-2 to 1666. This 
register supplies precise information not elsewhere extant in 
rri&tion to military administration in Ireland in the time to 
which it belongs. In addition to the particulars otf the com- 
missions, appointments, warrants, orders, and their dates, there 
are petitions, numerous' entries on the movements d officers 
a&d soldiers^ rates of pay, supj^ies of arms and clothing. 

During part of the time included in the register the goveim- 
ment in Ireland was administered by Ormonde's eldest son, 
Thomas Butler, Earl of Ossory, and his official a«ts in relation to 
the army are entered hei>e. The contents of the regisd^er do not 
in Hike manuscript stand in regular (»rder as to dates, but they 
are now presented in print in chronological sequence. 

X. In connexion with the army of Charles II. in Ireland, we 
havet a list, dated 6th May 1662, of captains, lieutenants, 
ensigns, comets, and corporals, with particulars of the numbers 
of soldiers and their stations. There are also here a return 
made in July 1662 of the officers of the King's regiment of 
guards; a list prepared in 1663 of officers received into the 
army in Ireland subsequently to 1662, and a letter of 1682 from 
officers of Ormonde/s regiment of guards to his secretary Henry 
Qascoigne, who befriended Richard Steele in his early years. 

XL The manuscript j: by Sir William Stewart, first Viscount 
Mountjoy, is his official return, as master of the ordnance in 
Ireland, in relation to tlie ordnance and munitions of war in 
his chaise on 25th March 1684. They consisted of cannon, 
carbines, muskets, pistols, grenades, powder, ball, match, sulphur, 
saltpetre, with instruments of various kinds, iron and timber- 
work, tents, waggons, harness for horses and oxen, and various 
articles for artillery and other military requirements. 

The places for which returns are entered in Lord Mountjoy's 
manuscript are as follow : — ^Athlone, Bantry, Carlow, Cairick- 
fergus, Charlemont, Charles-fort, Cork, Crookhaven, Culmore,

of these papers is a list of officers in 1684 who had served in Ireland 
before 1659, with accounts of the positions held by them at the 
latter date. Annexed to this document are interesting obser- 
vations in the handwriting of Ormonde concerning each of the 
persons named. 

In this section are also official lists of the regiments of the 
army in Ireland^ 1684-1686, with names of officers, chaplains, 
surgeons, particulars of numbers of men and their locations. 
Lists are also included of th& newly modelled army under the 
Viceroy, Tyrconnell, as well as estimates of the numbers of 
Roman Catholic officers and soldiers.

Address from Kilkenny and Tipps&abt to Henbt YIIL^ 

1543, June 26. — ^ To the Kjnges moost excellent Highnes: 

** In ther moost humble roaner, shewithe unto your rooost ex- 
cellent Majestie, your Highnes fajthfull and obedient subjectes, the 
gentilmen and possessioners dwelling within your Majestie's shires and 
counties of Kilkenny and Tipperary, whose names unto this present 
certificat ar[e] subscribed : Whereas they have emonge all rebellions 
and insurrecciones attemptid in this reahne contynued in suche loyall 
sorte as they have not oonly preservid them from ail suspicion of any 
suche detestable offences, but also to ther uttermost power have noyod, 
resistidy and invadid all such attonptatesy as well in the tyme of your 
Majestie's moost noble £Either of famous memory, when therle of 
Kildare crownid a harbor's son,* in Dublin, Kynge. 

As also when therle of Desmond asistid oon Parkyne Warboucke, in* 
tending to depryve his Grace from his crowne, kingdome and dignytie ; 
and in like manner in the last rebellion of the Geraldyns,^ the said posses- 
sioners suffrid greate losb of men, goodes, and cattaillis, with burnynge of 
ther mansiones and come in the said countie of Kilkenny. And yet for 
revenging thereof before the arryvvall of your Majestie's armye here, 
the said possessioners comyttid suche invasion, burnynge and distraction 
upon the said traditors as ther power was mouche slaked therby. 

And like as ther duetie to your moost excellent Majestic bounde theym 
therto, SCO were thei bothe led, enhablid and incoradgid to the same 
by the Erie of Ormonde's father that nowe is and himself, who were 
ther capitayns, guyders and conducters, under your Highnes and your 
Majestie's deputie for the tyme beinge. 

And at such tymes as any roode, invasion or hosting is sett forthe by 
your Highnes Deputie they have accompanyed and attended uppon him 
so doo daylie, be it in UUister, Connaght, or any other place within this- 
realme, victualid and apointid at ther owne chardgee, at the loading of ther 
sayd capitayne, withonte whom thei of themselves had not been hable to 
comyt suche exploytes as thei have done, for he gevith them contynualy 
horssis and harness ; and interteyneth other men of werr, to his sumptions 

The prlndpall cause that procureth the said gentilmen and pos- 
sessioners to make this certificat to your Excellency, is for that 
sethens the departing of the said Erie from this realme, it was credebly 
reaportid unto them howe that certaine persones shulde affirme that the

Obxoitdb. he shulde take and levie of them against ther willis a great sum of monj 
1548 ^^^ ^^ ^^^^ towardes his chardges [in] repay ring to your Highnes. 

To that they certifie unto your Highnes that hertofore they pre- 
sented before certayne of your Majestie's Oomyssioners howe they 
were overcharged with certayne thinges worthi reformacion, which 
accusaeion and presentment they were proeurid to do by the said Erie 
himselfe, aswell to present him as dyvers of his kynnysfolkes, which 
usid outeragiously to oppresse them mouche more then the said Erie 
doth, who dysmynisshith ther bourdone and chardges otherwise and 
after a better sorte then any of his antecessours of longe tyme dud, and 
out of doubte thei nevir concevid none other in him but that his 
intente have bene and is, to his power and posibilitie, for to put awaye 
trishe usadges, extorcions and abuses, which thei consider, standing 
under reformacion of your Highnes, were very inconvenyent to put him 
from having power and habilitie to serve your Majestic in defence of 
your Highnes subjectes and other marchinge with them being at 
libertie to have men contynually and fumytnre for the werr to sett 
forthe when them liste. 

Furthermore, to the mony supposid to be taken against our willis 
for an ayde for him repayring to your Highnes this tyme, uppon ther 
faith and duetie to your Majestic, the same mattex (if it be so set 
forthe) is false and untrue : for in respectethat the said Erie, besides his 
goodnes premysid, extended to them, as well interteyneth, wadgith, and 
gevith landes to sundry and dyvers of ther childern, brethrin and kynnis- 
folkes, to parte of them for ther lyves, to others for yers, for ther service 
oonly ; and is so greate a helper and gever to them all unyversally. 

And also for that it ^perith well to them that he occupieth 
himselfe mouche in your Majestie's afiayrs aswell at parliamentes 
and counsailes, as to all roodee, assemblies and jorneys, wherby, as 
parte of them doth knowe, he spendith his [w]hole annnall revenus 
yerly and also is indebtid, and dyvers parcelles of his landes restith at 
this present in mortgadge for preata eumes of raony ; wheruppon the 
said gentilmen and possessioners assessid for a pore ayde to him on 
his repayre thether, at this tyme, the sum of one hundred poundes 
sterlinge of them and ther tenantes. 

Moost drade Soverayne lorde, the said possessioners beseche your 
Excellency, in meet humble wise, to have respecte to the premissis, as 
thei ar[e] fully assurid your Highnes, of your moost kingly clemency, 
woll in suche wise as noo evill invencion (if any ther be, as God 
forbid) shall not hynder any noble man giltles ; and in semblable 
wise by this ther certificat advertise your moost excellent Majestic that 
^her was never man bredde in this realme, that any of them can 
remembre, bare more intier affection, love, faith, and harte to his 
Soveraine lord and maister then he doth, ne more hathe engravven in 
his harte the benefactes which he hathe receyvid in sundry wise of your 
moost excellent Highnes. 

fle helpeth to bringe npp at his chardges ther childern, after the 
English sorte and comenly rideth in his saddell, with hys servantes 
appointid after the facion of England, he enforcethe to his power, 
where soever he ruleth vnder your Grace, the inhabitantes of the 
same to obey your Majestie's writtes, proces and lawes with due 
obedience at cessions, which before his tyme was not [within] the 
space of one hundred yers and more, so well observid ne obeyde; 
he extirpeth and extinctith sundry the Irish lawes, customes 
and usadges, to his power; he peopplithe his possessions, as ferr as 

liethe in bim, with men of Englislie sorte, manei'es and condiciones mbs. ob 
and oute of doubte the Irishrie of this realme reputith him evin the ^(^<SSb1' 
principall deviser, setterforthe and interpriser of all thinges tonching —— 

the reformacion of this realme; so as they all, the said Irishry, in ^^^' 

effecte doo here more mortall hate, compassing his distraction above 
anj* oon man Ijving, if it dud conciste in ther powers or wiliis to 
bringe aboute or execute, havinge noo cause but for his lojall harte, 
trouthe and duetie, in serving jour Excellency. 

Eftsones beseeching your Majestic, of your Grace's accustomed clemency 
and prudence, to have suche eye and respecte to your Highnes approvid 
suljectes as the oonly submyssion of others newly reconcilid, without 
further proff of ther hartes and service, be not the meane to elivate 
them in power and streinthe, that thereby perille myghte growe to your 
Majestie's faithfuU subjectes. 

They do not meane to reprove or finde faulte in your Grace's 
Deputie and Ck>un8idll here, in ther prooeedinges therin, but oonly 
that cache cause and perill should be soo forseen after such sorte 
as your Majestie's moste circumspecte wisedome may provide con- 
digne remedye therfore in due season, and so admonishe your Highnes 
said Deputie and Counsaill as the! shall take the better regarde to ther 
doyinges ; wherby the thinges shall be the more firme and permanent. 

And because the said gentilmen and possessioners sealis ar[e] 
unknowen to dyvers, they have procurid suche privilegid and en- 
franchesid places as hathe ther corporacion and jurisdiction by your 
Majestic and your Grace's mooste noble progenitors, situatid in thees 
parties, with the most reverende father in God, the Archebisshoppe of 
Casshell, and the Bishoppes of Waterford and Ossory, to annexe 
herunto ther sealis: and suche of the said gentilmen as can write 
have subscribid ther names with ther propper handes ; and suche of 
them as can not write have caused ther names to be underwritten.*' 

Beseching Almyghtie God to preserve your moste excellent Hishness 
longe and tryumphantly to reigne, to the suertie and comforte of them 
and all other your Majestie's true subjectes. Dated the xxvi. day of

not leave any way unattempted which may enable our good subjects there 
to continue and mainteyne soe necessary a defense of themselves, who can 
expect nothing but misery and slavery under such mercy lesse enemy es. 

We send you herewith a transcript of the letter we have lately sent 
to our good cosen the Duke of Lorraine which we hope will 
prove effectuall and produce a good supply for that our kingdome.

^iven us many acceptable proofs of their loyalty and zeale for our service, 
is so much in our thoughts and care, that although some attempts made 
by ns for procuring them relief, while a partye of them was yet in arms, 
did not succeed according to our desire, yet wee have not given over to 
lay downe the most probable wayes which appeere to us to putt tliem in 
a condition to cooperat in the worke of their restitution, when it shall 
please God to inable us with power to undertake a warr in Ireland 
against those ciniell rebels, who by murdering, banishing, and inslaving 
our said subjects, do exercise an unmerciful! tiranny over them ; and to 
this end wee have authorised Sir George Hamilton, knight and Barronet, 
to inconrage such ofhcers of that nation as are out of service to repaire 
into our kingdom of Scotland, where, by our directions given to Lieu- 
tenant Generall Middletonn they are to be employed in our army with 
regard tc their quality and former places of commaund, as farr forth as 
the condition of our affniros there shall permit, and to Ih3 favoured by 
him according the mcasui*e of our trust in them, so as between those 
.of our subjects in the Highlands of Scotland, which wilbe actually putt 
under their commaund, and those of our said Catholike subjects, who to 
avoide the unsupportable pressures and miseries they live under will 
resort to them out of Ireland. Wee are confident such forces wilbe 
drawen to a body, as being transported thether, when fitt occasion is 
offerd will lay a foundation for the reduction of that kingdom. 

Now albeit wee have thus farr proceeded in designing the worke, yet 
wee see to our grief, that neither they at present cann find the benefit t, 
or the effects of our care and compassion of them, nor our other 8u)>jects 
under the commaund of Lieutenant Generall Middeltonn,' which are the 
only visible forces in our three kingdoms that oppose the rebels, be 
seasonably furnished with armes and ammunition, without such as wishe

vantage be oonveighed to those who upon former occasions have expressed 
their affections towards us, and a sence of the miseries to which our said 
Catholike suVgects of Ireland lay expos*d, and do authorish you to treat 
with them or any of them concerning means for transporting those officers 
and such other persons of that nation as shall think fitt to repaire 
to our ' said kingdom of Scotland and maybe usefull towards the 
advauncment of our service there, and likewise for sending timely 
(fupplies of arms and amunition thether, which being obtained may with 
God'n blessing be a happy foundation of our recovery and restoring of 
cur said Catholike subjects to theire country and freedom, aiid wee wish 
you to lett them understand, that as wee well know, a principall motive 
which may induce them to appear in our assistance, is their care of the 
Roman Catholike religion and of our subjects professiug it, so they shall 
find that in acknowledgment of their so seasonable a reflection upon the 
now state of our affaires, wee will even in that point extend our favour 
in such measure as wilbe satisfactory to those you are to solicitt, whom 
wee beleave to be prudent and discreet men. 

Wee have further enabled Sir George Hamiltonn to give you all light 
necessary for your proceeding in this affaire, which wee commend to your 
effect uall and speedy prosecution."

profest fls he has done heithei-to that he would have a care of me, but 
that he is in paine what to do for me, for that the peace will certainely 
be made with Cromwell tomorrow. I beleve I shall know what the 
Cardinall will propose for me to do, and I shall not faile to lett you 
know as soon as I cann. The Court removs not so soone as I writt 
last to you it being defered till Wensday, and many beleve it will be till

the ^vay of England would be subject to be opend, and what one says 
misconstrued, the never so innocent, for what may not we expect when 
both of us are so falsely accused and slandred as we are, when, God 
knows, if all his Majesties subjects had that duty and loyalty for him 
that we have, he could not be in those straights and so abominably used 
as he is, and betray[ed] by some of those he has most trusted. I hope 
that Lord Sunderlands and others^ voting for the bill against me, and 
entring their dissents, because it was rejected, will have that good effect 
with his Majestie as to open his eis and lett him see that they are myne 
enemys, and have been basely left by them, and that he may expect the

County of Londonderry (both which are already seised in the King's

Wherefore I desire, when such a letter irom his Majestic si lalbe obteyned

Pattent to passe speedily, and that you will particularly recommend it to 
the Lord Chancellor for that purpose, that soe all my estate in Ireland^

And whereas I am informed that ceitaine lands in the Countyes of 
Kilkenny and Tipperary remaine in controversy betwixt us ; T desire 
that we may refer the matter to Councell on both sides ; and in case

into Ireland to you, to lett you know I have had several! letters from you 
by Mr. Keightly, Mr. Sheridon,* and others, who hava come hether, 
which have all given me very much satisfaction, since I see yon continue 
so very stedy to your old principles. If the same sperit of stedynesse 
continue in England, I make no doubt all will go very well, and I hope 
what has been done here will encoui-age people there, and lett his Majestie 
see that resolution and sticking lo his old friends will secure him against 
all his enemys. Lord Hyde has been here and is gone back againe, and 
I am not to go up to give his Majestie an account of his affairs here till 
nfter Lord Shaftsburys tryal be over,^ which is to be next month. I 
confetjse J thought it would have been for his Majesties service, for me 
immediately upon the rising of the Parliament here to have gone up, 
tho it had been but for a few days, but his Majestie was of another mind 
and I must obay. I beleve tho Parliament will rise by the ende of this 
week, all that his Majestie had charged me to gett done being past, and 
r have had the satisfaction to heare from him himself that he is satisfyd 
with what has been done. 1 must now recomend to you the concerns 
of this bearer, Russell. You know him as well as I do, so that I hope

and are like to do so, and the choyse of so good a mau. Sir J. Moore, for 
Lord Mayor of London, is as displeasing to the party here, as it was to 
their friends in England, and tis now to be hoped his Majestic will make 
good use of it, and to settle his affairs, as he need not be so much con- 
cerned whom they shall chuse another yeare. At His Majesties first 
going to Newmarkett, I was somewhat allarumed, at the report of some 
oficrs [which] were made to His Majestie by the party,' and great en- 
deavers were used to perswade him they would serve him, many of the 
jockes were for this, and poor Lord St. Albans^ as busi in it as any 
body els, which I do not wonder at knowing the dealings he has all ways 
had, with many of the Presbiterians, but now I hope that is over and 
sure his Majestie cannot be deceved by them againe, and I am sure he 
is master if he pleases and may support himself without any other help

this has been the first oportunity I have had to answer it, and to tell yon 
that I am very glad to find by it that the valne of lands rises as you say 
they do in Ireland, for both King and subject find the benefitt of it. As 
for what is doing at London, as to the farming of the revenue of Irland, 
I know little of it, more than that Sir James Shaen has made proposals 
and that Lord Eanelagh objects against them, but I wonder you are not 
advised with in it. I am sure it ought to be. I am a stranger too [as] 
to what is like to become of me, not knowing yett whether I shall be 
sent for to London or stay here, but now I thinke a few days will cleere 
that^ for if I have not leave to go up speedily, I am to ezpecte to remaine 
hare a great while. My friends there presse my going up, and to speake 
plainly to you, I have reuson to beleve if it had not been for Lord 
Halifax I had been with His Majestie before now, he being the only 
man I know in power that opposes it. I do not know what creadet he 
has had in other things, but in this, to my cost, I am sensible he has. I 
pray Grod he may not shew another marke of his power and perswade 
His Majestie to call a Parliament In England, which at this tyme would 
I feare prove fatal [bo]th to the King and the monarky. 'Tis likly by 
that tyme this getts to you you may know whether that will be or not. 
As for the newse of this place, the Parliament here is ajourned till the 

17 cf April, by proclamatioD, and all things here are now very quiatt, 
for nil what passed at Lanerck some tyme sinse, and I thinke like to 
continue so; though some people thinke there may be a rising, in the 
western parts of this kingdome in the spring. All care is taken that 
can be to prevent it, and to prepare for it. This bearer. Lord Boscomon,^ 
can give so full an account of things here, that I need say no more of 
them. He has desired me to recomend him to you, that when a vacancy

of those favours which I expected to have reaped from your Graces

cannot upon any tearmes obtaine his mothers blessing, but still sufEers 
under her very high displeasure which is fomented (I feare) by some^

the burden of the later is layed wholy on me, which I should 
not so tamely have taken up, neither have so early owned my 
daughter (after so greate an act of disobedience) more than the Lord 
Gbancelour and his Lady did theire sonue, but that the respect I have 
to his Grace as a person above me, made me thinke it but good manners 
to f orgeve fkst, which has brought that charge upon me which (I feare) 
will not be considered when the portion is to be paido. A word, or a 
line, from your Grace to the young gentleman's mother will I hope bring 
a double blessing back with it, one from the mother upon her sonne, 
another from God upon your Grace as the peace-maker, and encrease

** 1681, July 12. Windsor. — I receaved lately from my Ljrd Piimate a j^gj^ 

coppy of your Gfrace's letter of the 28th of May last to the Lords of the 
Treasury here, for which I thinke myself obliged to returne your Grace 
my most humble thanks. 

Which having donne, I must begge your Grace to believe that I 
should by no meanes have fayled to give you an account of the late 
proposalls delivered in, and in a manner accepted, relating to the 
revenue of that kingdome, had I been acquainted with them. But the 
proposer, who certainly is Sir James Shaen, made it his first request to 
the king, that neither your Grace nor myself should be acquainted 
with his proposall, alleadging that you were not well knowing in the 
revenue then, and that I was a party in itt. Of this woilhy request 
of his, I had, after some tynie, notice ; and thereupon I made my com- 
playnt to the king, who, after some tliscourse, assured mee that both 
your Grace and myself should be thoroughly acquainted with the whole 
matter, before he would make any positive agreement. In the meane 
tyme, 1 finde the proposer is kind as to my particular, for he offers to 
give me a generall discharge as to my undertaking and fifeteen thousand 
pounds in ready money ; soe that if his notions take I am to have 
quiett and money, which are two things I earnestly desyre. But I 
have great reason to feare the publiquo will not be halfe soe well ac- 
commodated by him ; for tho he proposes to give three hundred thousand 
pounds a year for our revenue from the first of May last, yett I am 
confident there is nothing lease in his designe, nor can I bring myself 
to believe that those who pay 240,000/. a year soe ill, will be able to 
pay 60,000/. a year more; neither can I see the reason why they should 
increase their rent for the remayning year and a halfo of their time 
after the rate of 60,000/. a year, which in shorte is making the king 
a present of 90,000/., if they pay what they offer, and that is a summe 
which I am sure is several! thousand pounds more than they are all 
worth. In shorte, for ought as I can yett see or hear, I am humbly 
of opinion the great designe of the proposer is to compound the sixty 
thousand pounds which he and partners are to pay after Christmasse 
1682, and to gett the revenue into their hands without any cheque or

1682, Dec. 12. Londonderry.— '^ I make bold once more to trouble 
your Grace with an inclosore.' It is the copy of a letter which I received 
yesterday. I have largely discourst the gentleman who brought it 
concerning all the contents of it, who tells me that he hath very good 
cause to believe that there is a dangerous designe now driving on 
between the fanaticks of Ireland, and their brethren in Scotland and 
England. That they have had lai*ge collections from several of their 
Conventicles for the redemption of Christian slaves, but that the mony 
hath been remitted to London to buy armes, in hopes to deliver them* 
selves from the slavery of law and government. He tells me likewise 
that he hath been credibly inform'd by some of the party that the next 
spring they expect a ship well loaden with these comodityes at Port- 
aferry, in the county of Down, or somewhere there about. In comparing 
all circumstances, the onely thing that amuseth me is why he should 
first goe to Scotland to reveal a conspiracy here in Ireland, and not 
rather apply hiinselfe to the State hei*e. If your Grace shall think it 
of concern to send for him, perhaps he may give a satisfactory account 
of that, and several other particulars. I perceive he is a person verf 
indigent ; but if my Lord Deputy, and Your Grace command his 
attendance, I will take care to furnish him for his journey. I humbly

I soon rccover'd that ; but I have found the air of the Castle [of Dublin]

Plot used my utmost endeavors to try if I could trace it here, but not 
meeting with anything to which I can give credit, I onely give your 
Grace my private thoughts which are that the Presbytarians here are as 
desperat and bloody as any the world has, but there not being any 
person of quality to head them in these parts, I take them not to be very 
dangerous to the government at present, unles there were a rebellion 
elsewhere. I doe verily believe that all their ministers (though some of 
them are silly enough) were acquainted with the Plot, and the reasons 
for my thinking soe are, because Mr. Trayle, a leading furious preacher 
among them, did upon the first notice we had of the Plot steale away by 
night from his bowse and as I am told absconds himselfe either in the 
county of Downe or Antrym, and because there are but a few even of 
the meanest sort of people which are not well furnished with swords 
and ffyer armes, and because many of them did pretend to goe for 
Carolina, but soe soon as the Plot was discovered, thev talkt noe more 
of that voy^e, but told their people his Majesty would not permit them. 
to goe. [ly doe not know that any one has .soe great an interest in 
them as my Lord Mountjoy, and yet I believe if there were occasion he 
would be very [ulnnble to keep them within their duty. The preachers 
hitherto [ha]ve given obedience to my Lord Deputy es commands and 
have not met [in] publique meetings, but they say that they doe this 
onely for a small [tyme and] that they intend to peticion for a ^ture 
induQgence, which if not granted, they will preach without it, it being 
^eir duty to obey God rather than man. The militia here in this

abilities of that worthy gentleman, and I find in him so much duty for

because there was nothing to be attended here, but the influences we 
might receive from the measures taken by the Scotch Parliament* What 
that assembly will do seems yet uncertain. Their countrymen here do 
promise us they will end better than they have begun. But by what I 
can observe there is little appearance of their falling into the same suc- 
cession, and how far our religious and civil interests will be exposed by 
this time must show. I do all I can among the persons I converse with 
to show the wisdom and necessitie of their continueing in an union with 
England, and they seem to be sensible of it, but they think there are 
grievances which ought first to be redressed. I pray God to direct all 
for the best, and to send your Grace speedily and safely to us and to 
prosper all the great aflaires you have before you. My small endeavours

from hense sooner tlian I believe they are expected, having roett with a 
greater dispatch on this syde then any ever before had. 

" I doe with all imaginable submission ofier it to your Graces con* 
sideration whether it won't be absolutely necessary at the opening of 
this sessions to say something towards justifying Sir William Bobison 
of the same nature as you did att the close of the last, without which I 
don't ^ee how it will be practicable to demand the continuance of the 
dutyes, soe unless the paper that is to be layd before the House demon- 
strates that the same arreare that was last Parliament askt still reooains 
unsatisfyed, how can your Graces freinds press for new supplyes, and I 
fear it will not only be plain that the same debt still remains but a 
greater is since added to it. 

'' Besides, if this is not don from the Throne att the opening of the 
Parliament, the same people whoe gave your Grace that unreasonable 
oposition the last year will think themselves justifyed and that not only 
Sir William Robison was in the wrong in making the demand he did, 
but your Gi^ace likwise in what you soe justly said from the Throne to 
them on that subject att parting ; the consequence of which will be that 
the same debt must be for ever postponed. 

*' Wee hear it confidently expected that we shall not be able to goe 
through with the linnen bill, but T can assure you Grace for anything 
yett apears I never saw a bill like to meet with less oposition."

1705, Sept. 15. Hillendon. — ^*^ I know that Captain Brooke who 
went my aide de camp into Portugal is no stranger to your Grace, 
having heretofore beene a captain in your owne regiment, so that I 
need not trouble you with a narration of his long service, nor the 
justice he may pretend to for a belter command than what he now has ; 
but haveing served me several yeares fully to my satisfaction, I may 
with the greater assurance recommend him to your favour. 

^' My Lord, Captain Brooke tells me that whilst he was with me in 
Portugal (for which he had your Grace's leave) the major of the 
regiment in which he serves died, and he being eldest captain conceives 
it was his right to succeed him. However because of his absence the 
Major's post was given to a younger captain. I cannot say but when 
raiments are in actual service preferments are commonly given to 
officers on the spott without regard to the seniority of those that on 
private pretensions are absent. But I hope your Grace will judge 
Captain Brook's case much different ; for his regiment was in quarters 
in A peaceable kingdome whilst he was employd in the publick service 
abroad which seems to me to improve his pretensions. Therefore I 
earnestly make it my request to your Grace that you will take him into 
your care and grant him in the mean sime a breviatt for Lieutenant 
Collonell which will only ^ve him his due post in the regiment but will 
add to the many obligations I already have/'

** I take it for granted by what your Grace was pleased to intimate to 
me that the Chief Justice' of the Queen's Bench here is to be removed

to your Grace that one alteration in that Court wiU not be sufficient, 
for Sir Bicliard Cox will not be able to do tliat service to the Crown 
which is expected from him if some able and experienced lawyer be not 
put into the place of Justice MacCartney who I think is by no means 
fit to fill that place he is in. Mr. Justice Coot^ behaves himself like a

very well qualifying for that place if either of them can be prevailed

Whereas complaint hath been made unto us on the behalf of our very 
good lord the, Erie of Ormond, that he and his auncestors havinge held

priveledges and immunities thereunto belonglnge, the Maior and officers 
of the towne of Kilkeny, by coulor of a newe chartex',^ lately graunted

upon his priveledges and infreuge the auucient liberties of that custell, 
contrary to any custome or usuage of former tyme that can be shewed 
in that behalf. 

And forasmuch as the said castle is one of the auncientest howses 
of the said Earle, and the cheefest seate of that place, wliom his 
Majestic hath good cause to respect, and that it is meete some course 
be taken for the settlinge of these thiuges in difference betweene him and

of Earl of Ormonde with his daughter and son- in-law. 

1613. " Wee have bin lately advertised that our right trusty and right well- 

beloved cousin, the Earle of Ormond, by the lewde and dishonest prac- 
tizes of some aboute him, hath conceaved so deepe a dislike against the 
Lord Viscount Butler, his sonne in law, that he lately caused liim, with 
much show of aunger and unkindnes, to remove from his house, and 
contynueing still to expresse the bittemes of his hnrte towards him, 
intends (as wee are enformed) to diminishe the revenewes of his 
Earledome by making long leases at undervallewes, and to chardge it with 
other encumbrances, much to the prejudice of the said Viscount, who is 
to succeede him by hereditary discent, both in the possessions and honor 
of the said Earledome.

'* Endorsed : From his Majesty to to my Lord Deputy, in the behalf 
of the Lord Viscount Butler." 

[t?.] Sib Abthub Chichesteb, Lord Deputy, and Council in 
Ibeland to the Fbivy Council, England, 1615. 

^'Maie it please your Lordshipps, Wee have lately receaved his 1615. 

Majestie's letters of the 14*^ of Marche last, whereby wee are required 
without dehde lo reestablish e the Lord Dingwall and the Lady Elizabeth 
his wife or their assignes in the castle and towne of Cloughgrenan, and 
the lordshippe of Cloughy, nnd of all other the mannors, castles, and 
lands, whereof the Lord Viscount Butler was possessed at the tyme of 
his death, of which Captain Thomas Butler had unduly dispossest the 
said Lady Elizabeth and detayned the same with force, which his 
Majestic much dislykeih. 

May it please your Lordshipps to be remembred, that uppon 
a petition exhibited to your Lordshipps there by the sayd Lady 
Elizabeth, you directed your letters to mee, the Deputy, which I 
receaved at my being in England, whereby your Lordshipps directed 
mee to restore the sayd Lady Elizabeth to the possession of the castle 
and towne of Cloughgrenan, and all the lands before mencion<!4 
which were then in the possession of the sayd Captain Thomas Butler, 
which your Lordshipps letters, together with letters from myself, I 
presently sent to the then Lords Justices (myself then attending his 
Majestic) desireing them to take present order for the due accomplish- 
ment of the contents of your Lordshipps' said letters. 

Whereupon the Lords Justices directed their commandement to the said 
Captain Thomas Butler, straight ly chargeing him to restore the possession 
of the said lands, as your Lordshipps required, but either by negligence 
of those who followed the matter, or delayes used by Captain Butler, the 
possession was not restored untill my arrivall here, and soone after a 
complaynt thereof being made unto mee, I sent for the said Captain 
Butler, and examyning the matter at the Councell Boord, it happened by 


Mia^ib'ov certaine depositiones tokon hj our spetiall direction that Captain Butler 

. Okhokdb. had unduelj gayned the possession of the castle of Cloughgrenan, but it 

1615. likewise appeared that the Lord Yiscounte's mother, who was in 

possession of Cloughgrenan before Captain Butler entered into it, did of 

her own free will and consent give the possession of a house in the 

sajd towne to Captain Bntler. 

Whereupon, wee conceaved this order that the Ladj Elizabeth 
should be restored to the possession of the castle, which, in onr 
opiniones. Captain Butler had not fairelie gotten, and that he should 
keepe the possession of the house delivered u[nto] him by the 
Lady Dowager, mother to the Lord Viscount, vpon bui[lding] 
whereof he hath since bestowed some cost ; which our order was soe 
displeaseing to both parties as neither of them would call to the 
Clarke of the Councell for it ; and soe possession hath contynued in 
Captain Butler as it was at fii*st gotten without force, and soe kept 
untill the receipt of his Majestie's foresayd letters. 

In accomplishment whereof, wee have now directed warrant to the 
Sheriff of the county of Caterlagh to deliver the possession of all the lands 
before recyted to the Lord Dingwall imd the Ladj his wife, or to their 
assignes ; yet, never thelesse, because wee hold it verie agreeable to justice 
and our duties, not to leave him whom wee have dispossessed, shewing 
forth a title by conveyance from the Lord Viscount Butler, without a 
speedie remedie by course of law, to trie his right, the rather that there 
hath not appeared unto us anie title on the parte of the Lord Dingwall 
or his Lady, we conceaved an order that Captain Thomas Bntler should 
file his declaitition as of this tetirme, whereunto the Lord Dingwall and 
his Lady, or their agents, should appeare gratis, and plead the general! 
issue, without taking exception to anie matter of forme but to stand 
upoun the meere right ; and for that there are not a competent nomber 
of sufficient freehoulders in the county of Caterlaghe which is the 
proper county, wee ordered that the yssue should be tryed at the King's 
Benche barr in Michaelmas tearme next by a jury of the county of 
Kildare, being the next indifferent countie to Catherlagh. 

And if the Lord Dingwall and his Lady, or their agent, should by anie 
meanes procure a stale in the proceedings of the triall or make any unne- 
cessary delay es, that then the possession should be reestablished in Captain 
Butler, to which order (which wee hould to be verie just and reasonable) 
the agent of the Lord Dingwall would not consent, alleadging that he 
had no authoritie from the Lord Dingwall and his Iiady soe to doe ; 
which is the cause of this bean*er, Captain Butler's repayre to your 
Lordshipps at this tyme, in regard that, in accomplishment of his 
Majestie's pleasure, wee have given absolute warrant for delivering of 
the possession of all the lands mentioned in his Majestie's letters, and all 
other lands whereof the Lord Viscount died seised, unto the Lord 
Dingwall, his lady, or their agent, which otherwise wee would not have 
done unlesse they had consented to such a leading order for a speedy 
triall of the right, as before is expressed, which wee hould to be soe 
expedient and just, as it ought not to be denyed. 

Thus haveing trulie related oure proceedings in tliis matter, wee 
humblie beseeche your Lordshipps to acquaint his Majestic therewith, 
to whom, and to your Lordships, Avith all humility wee leave the further 
consideration thereof. The gentleman is poore, and not soe well able to 
undertake this journey as (in respect of his former goode deservings) 
wee could wish hee were ; and, therefore, in his behalf wee humbly praie 
your Lordships' favourc, that with some convenient t^peede he maie 
be dispatched.

beareinge date the 24 of Maie, 1614 [1615], concerneinge the Lord 
Dingwall, and the Lady Elizabeth his wife, on the one partie, and Cap-

Cloughgrenan, and the Lordshipp of Cloughie, whereof the Lord Vis-

and Councell, as well for setlinge the possession in the Lord Dingwall 
or his assignes, according to the purport and effect of a warrant formerly 
given out by the said then Deputy and Councell in that behalfe, as alsoe 
for the speedy and indifferent triall of the title by ordinary course, either 
of the comon lawe, or equity, as the matter should require : and that 
the Earle of Ormond should bringe in all such evidences and writings as 
doe anie way concerne those lands and shalbe requisit to be perused for

order of the Councffil Boord here, of the 6 of November ; as alsoe by the

Butler should comence his action de ejectione firme in the King's

" Right trustie and welbeloved we greete you well : We have at 1618-19. 
length, after the trouble of some jeares and manye dajes of hearinge, 
the more fullie to informe ourself of the state of that cause, made an 
absolule end of the busjnes dependinge betwene the Earle of Ormond 
and the Lady Dingew^le, submitted unto ns by their owne consenteSy 
wherein, havinge had our eyes more open to equitie and justice than to 
any particuler respectcs, we maye truelie sale, wee have noe wayes 
swerved from any t hinge which we ought in honor as a just judge to 
have performed ; and yet wee suppose wee have given contentment to 
neither, in respect of what they did desire, being both partiall in their 
owne behalfes. 

What we have done tfeerein the enclosed will shewe you, beinge 
the true copie of the award ^ that wee have made betwixt them> 
which wee require and command you to put in execncion with the 
best conveniencie you can, by takinge order that the possession of all the 
parcells therein mencioned as awarded for the Lady Dingewall, may 
forthwith be delivered either to her or her assignes, excepting onely 
theis which foUowe, viz., the mannor of Nenagh, the services and 
cheferics thereunto belonginge, the abbey of Nenagh, the Grange of 
Nenagh, the demnines, the serjantes place there, half Barronnore and 
Ballivillen, the rent beofes of Orraondy Grange, nere Nenagh, Dromne- 
meban and Uskan, near Nenagh, Aghnemolte and the Grange in the 
county of Kilkeny (in which the Lady Dingewalles estate for life or 
any other title which she can make to the said two parcells is to be ex- 
nmyned and the possession to her accordinglie delivered) Castletowne in 
Iverke, Henebristowne, Knockandrowlie, being members of Carioke, and 
lyingc in the countie of Kilkeny, all which ut the Earle of Ormondes 
bumble request, and as a token of our grace and favor to that house^ 
we have bene pleased since the perfectinge of onr award to cause the 
Lady Dingwall to release unto him. 

No we as the promise made unto us by the Lady Dingwall to quitt 
presently to the Earle of Ormond the joincture which she hath in the 
landes belonginge to her late deceased husband, the Lord Viscount of 
Tnllyophelym, was one motive unto us to assigne her so large a porcion, 
soe it doth stand both with reason and justice, the busines beinge ended, 
that wee should see that promise accordinglie performed ; theis are there- 
fore to require you to cause all such landes as the suid Lady is interessed 
in by vertue of her said joincture to be forthwith delivered into the 
handes of the said Earle of Ormond or such ministers as he shall appoint 
to receave them for his use. 

And howsoever wee doubt not but theis our lettres will be delivered you 
before Easter next, yet least there should be impediment in that kinde, 
wee thought good to lett you knowe that the rentes of the said landes 
awarded to the Lady Dingewall are to be paied unto her at Easter for 
the half year past since the date of the said award. The like coarse you 
are to take for the Earle of Ormond, that hee may receave the benefitt 
of the Lady Dingwall's joincture now to be conferred upon him for the 
said tvme. And theis our lettres, etc.

— * " Right trustie and wellbeloved, we greele you well, and lett you to 

1619. ^i^^; tj^j^t whereas Sir Walter Butler, Knight, Earle of Ormond and 
Ossorie, by writting obligatorie, dated the fourteenth day of May, 1617, 
became bound unto our light trustie and well beloved servant. Sir 
Richard Preston, Knight, Lord Dingwall, and the Lady Elizabeth, his 
wife, daughter and heire of Thomas, late Earle of Ormond and Ossory, 
deceased, in the somm of one hundred thousand pounds of lawfull 
money of England, with condition to stand to and performe such award 
and order as wee should make and sett down touchinge the landes and 
other thinges in question betwixt them ; which controversies wee have 
in our owne persons sundrie tymes heard debated at lardge by councell 
learned on each side, in the presence of the said parties. 

Wee, by the advice of our learned councell and some of our principal 
judges, made and published our award for the ending of the said contro- 
versie, under our great scale of England, in such sorte as our conscience 
doth witneese with us that wee have therein proceeded according to 
right and equitie, without wrong to either partie. 

Yet-, notwithstanding, the said Earle hath and still doth obstinatly 
refuse to accomplish our said award. 

And whereas the said Lord Dingwall and Lady Elizabeth, his wife, have 
by their writting under their handes and scales with us by their attorney to 
be delivered and acknowledged as their deede, before one of the barrons, 
and inrolled in our Exchequer there, graunted and assigned over unto 
UR the foresaid writting obligatorie and penaltie of one hundred thousand 
pounds, therein expressed, as by the same writting, which we send here- 
with, may appeare unto you. We doe therefore require you to take order 
that our cheif barren or some one other of the barrons, may take ac- 
knowledgment of the said writting of assignement to our use and see 
that the same be inrolled in our Exchequer there ; and that such comis- 
sions and process of extente, as in such cases are U8ual, be forthwith 
issued for the extending and seising into our handes of all the castells, 
manners, landes, tenementes and hereditamentes whereof the said Earle 
of Ormond is seised or possessed in that our kingdome, in use or pos- 
session, whereby the rentes and profittes may be answeared aud paied to 
us or to such person or persons as Wee sbali appoint. 

And also that writtes of ad venditionem apponas be likewise awarded, 
for the selling of such leases, goodes and chattells, whereof the said 
Earle is or shalbe found to be possessed in that oar kingdome, for ejid 
towardes the satisfaction of the said debt ofone hundred thousand pounds. 
And Wee doe further require you to take present order that our learned 
councell there doe prosecut our said service with effect that all the 
evidences, deedes, and charters touching the said Thomas, late Earle of 
Ormondes landes may be sequestred, to be safely kept untill a division 
of the same be made, according to our said award. 

And likewise We doe hereby further require you to putt the said 
Lord and Lady Dingwall, or their attorney, in possession of the toune 
and landes of Castell Kelly, the same word, Castell, being rased and 
left out and the word Kelly remaining therein, for that the same was 
only a mistaking of the clercke that writt our said award. 

And further that you doe forthwith call before you the Lord 
Viscount Thurles, and to make knowen unto him his contempt 
comitted for receiving and detayning of the rents taken up by his 
direction of the landes assigned to the Lord Dingwall, contrarie 
to our said award, and that thereupon you require him to make payment 


of all the same rentes to tb« Lord Dingwall, or to sucb as he shall ap* mas^xb'ot 
pointy within soe manie dales as you shall think fitt, and if hee shall re- Obmo^db. 
fiise soe to doe that then you comitt him for his contempt until he hath \^i^^ 

paied the same accordingly. 

And whereas the late Viscount Butler was seised of certnine 
mannors and landes in that our realme, and at his death was indebted 
to sundrie persons in divers sommes of money> which as well by 
our said award as by the said Earle his former agreement and bond 
is dae and payable by him, whoe nevertheless doth neglect the ac- 
complishing of our said award, or his or his owne agreement, Wee doe, 
therefore, require you forthwith to take order that all the mannors, 
landes, thinges and horeditamentes, whereof the said Viscount was seised 
or possessed, att the tyme of his death, shalbe, with the privitio of the 
said Earles officers of his revenew, lett and improved to the highest 
vallue ; and tiie rent and profittes thereof being duely collected, shalbe 
sequestred by you into som good hand, for the payment of the said

Whereas wo have heretofore at the humble and ernest suit, as well of the 
Earle of Ormcnd and the Lord Dingwall, new Earle of Desmond, and the 
Lady Elizabeth, his wife, as also of Sir John Everard, knight, and 
^bert Roth, esq., two of the feoffees of the lands of the late Earle of 
Ormond, taken uppon us to make an arbitrary end of the questions and 
differences, concerning the lands and hereditaments of the late Earle of 
Ormond, which we were the rather induced unto, for that we did fore- 
see the ^reate contentions and manifold suits which were like to grow 
between the said honorable personages so neer in bloud and of so noble 
a familie, which we were willing by all meanes to prevent, as for that Sir 
John Everard and Robert Roth did both confesse unto us that the ant lent 
entayles of the lands of the said Earle of Ormond to the heires males were 
barred and that the said Lady Elizabeth might overthrow the house of 
Ormond, unles we would be pleased to take the same into our determina- 
cion, which they did both joyntly togeather in treat us to doe; and, at 
length, after many dayes, and much tyme spent in heoring both the said 
parties their counsell and allegations on both sides^ we have, by the 
assistance of our Chancellor, and the most principall of our judges, and 
by the advice and opinion of our learned counsell, made and published 
our finall order and award concerning the controversies, which we have 
caused to be exemplified under our Great Seale of England. 

By which award we have ordered that the Lady Desmond, and the 
heired of her body, shall have and enjoy diverse lands therein pnrticularly 
mentioned, and that the Earle of Ormond and his feoffees shall make such 
assurances thereof as by their learned counsell shall be advised. 

And after we had published the said award, although we did conceive 
the same to be a<;reeable to the justice and equitie of the cause, yet, at 
the earnest re(]uest of the Earle of Ormond, and as a token of our grace 
and favour to that house, we were pleased to cause the Lady Desmond 
to remit and I'elcase unto him diverse manors of good valew, which we had 
before awarded to the said Lady, wherowith the Earle of Ormond seemed 
to be well satistied; bat yet, neverthelesse, he hath, in great contempt of 
us and our royall autlioritie, refused and still doth refuse to seale such 
assurances as hath beene tendred nnto him, on the behalf of the said 
Lady of Desmond, according to our award. 

u 73529. F 


Miju^is'oF ^^^ whereas the like assurances have beene tendred to Sir 
OsMoiTDB. John Everard and Robert Both, as feoffees aforesaid, they have also 
16S0. refused to porfect the same, pretending that they are very willing 
to doe whatsoever doth lye in them for the execucion of our award, 
but that they cannot safely execute these assurances unlesse they 
shall bee enjoyned thereunto by some legall course and bee discharged 
against the said Earle, and the heircs males. 

And, therefore, wee are graciously pleased, and doe hereby require yon, 
that, uppon a bill to be exhibited by the said Earle of Desmond and the 
Countesse, his wife, into oar Court of Chauncery there, against the said 
Earle of Ormonde and his feoffees for the performing of our award, you 
take speedy order (having due regard to our honour and proceedings 
therein) to strengthen our said award with the decree of that court, 
according to justice and equitie, and that you cause our award in every- 
thing to be speedily performed, and if faire meanes will not serve, that you 
see the same done by correction of them that shall withstand the same« 
And for your so doing these our letters shall bee your waiTant.

required him to take order to strengthen our award made betwixt the 
Earle of ( )rmond and the Earle and Countesse of Desmond, by decree in 
our court of Ohauncerie there, to the end that the feoffees of the said 
Earle of Ormond, accordinge to their owne desire might be thereby 
secured against the said Earle and his heires males, if in performance of 
the said award they did make such conveyance to the Ck>untesse of Des- 
mond of the landes allotted unto her, as in justice and equitie they ought. 

Forasmuch as wee understand that such a decree was accordinglie made,

you well. Whereas our most deare father of blessed memory was 
graciously pleased by his letters of the 26 of December, 1627, directed 


to his then deputy of that our kitigdome, to signifie that our right trustie 
and right well beloved cousin the Earle of Ormonde, and the Earle and 
Countcsse of Desmond, being detained here, by our said father's eom- 
aundement about the difference depending betweene them, noe suits, of 
what kind soever, should be commenced or proceeded in, against them or 
any of their tenants, concerning their possessions in that kingdome dur- 
ing their absence from thence, untill their business might be soe com- 
posed as that they might be both licensed to depart from hence, to looke 
into the state of their affaires. 

And whereas wee have alsoe by our letters required you to give order 
that all proceedings in any suits depending or to be moved in our Court 
of Wards there, concerning our owne titles and tenures, should be stayed 
for a tyme, that the said Earle and Countesse may be there, to 
attend their owne causes; neverthelesse, wee are informed by the 
humble peticion of the said Earle and Countesse of Desmond, that 
one Dermod O'Doyle, a butcher, hath lately commenced suite in our 
Court of Chancery there, against the peticioners tenant, upon a 
pretended title by his purchase since the awards made by our said Either, 
unto certaine lands in the countie of Wickloe, awarded to the said Coun- 
tesse ; and that the peticioners not having yet recovered the evidences 
belonging to them, the same being not yet had nor recovered from the 
Earle of Ormonde, they are in danger to lose the lands in question, and 
soe, by degrees, all the lands awarded to the Countesse, if any man shall 
challenge the same ; they having not the evidences to defend their title 
to the same, which may turne to their great prejudice. 

And, therefore, being carefull, that the said Earle of Desmond, who 
was an ancient servant of our said father, and is a nobleman well esteemed 
of by ourself, may receive noe such prejudice in his estate during his 
absence, wee are graciously pleased (having already stayed the suits that 
eoncemed ourself) hereby to require you to give order to our Chancellor 
and Court of Chancery in that our renlme, not to proceed in the said suite 
commenced by the said DonnoU [«tc] O'Doyle, nor in any other to be 
commenced by him at any tyme, touching any of the lands or hereditaments 
awarded to the said Countesse of Desmond. 

And it is our further pleasure, that all other suits concerning any of the 
lands allotted to the Countesse of Desmond by the foresaid award, shal be 
staied untill the peticioners may receive the said evidences from the Earl& 
of Ormond, according to the said award. And these our letters, etc.

may prove much to my prejudice, and all the returnc I expect by

about 600 pounds worth of' cloth. If you thinke to comme by sea,

2. — To the Marquis of Ormonde, Lord Lieatenant of Ireland.^ 

i. — [1644.] — [Derry.] — " Things are brought to that eztremitie thai 
my regiment and officers ha^e taken the Covenant, to save not the little 
was left but [li]fe itself, such is the violence of the people. They are, 
upon my reputation, what they were before. I have with much hasard 
put it off, in which if I doe not suddainly resolve them they ha?e told 
me they will leave neither wife nor child worth a smock. The monies 
I had are all in stock and merchandise, supposing once to have done 
. . . which lyeth ... of their hands. 

I may happily [makje a shift, if your excellencie command me, to 
^scape with my life to Dublin, but must leave wife and children 
to famine and derision insteed of charitie. No ways to prevent 
this but by taking the Covenant, which the ministers are contented to 
[adm]it me unto, only swaring [the] title viz.: to maintaine religion, 
the honor [and] happinesse of the kinge, the peace and safety of 
the three kingdomes ; and [that] further, if' your Lordship give 
leave to [me], will I take it, and when I, as . . . unsuspected, 
may use [my] liber tie, I will make a regiment [that will be] ready to 
obey your Lordship's commands, and my Covenant to . . . and 
happinesse of m[y regiment]. My judgment doth not . . . Derry 
for taking [the]. Covenant since he refused my go[od] . . . might 
have been prevented for not only himselfe • . . the citie would 
have then been put into such hands as . • • have been disabled to

It were good if your Lordship could employ somme trusty frind who 
upon . . . grounds of distaste from your Excellencie would mingle 
himselfe with that . . • and nubosome their secrets to your 
Lordship. Flow with their heiffer if [you] will read their riddle. 

I entreat your Excellencie my messenger be not delayed, for I feare I 
shall be put to hard shifts ; and what your Excellencie says shall be the 
rule and guide of your Excellencie's most obliged servant.'* 

ii. — 1644[-6,] February 4. Londonderry. — ^** Should* I collect from 
outward observations in what aspect I stand in your Excellencie's 
favoure, I might be assaulted by many doubts, but when I examine 
my own actions and their principles in my soule^ I presume to intitle 
myselfe your Lordship's faithful and constant servant. 

Had I been lukewarme in his Majestie*s service, I might have retired 
unto Dublin and have left a thousand men in armes to have been actuated 
by a new head, according to the influence of whose braines it is probable 
that new recatechised bodie would have moved. Or had my vasster zeale

refused to hearken unto the discreeter counsaile of my reason, to give a 
passionate multitude line whose flames as thej easily catch fire, so will as 
soon expire where reason ministers no fewell, I had by breaking bulke 
too soone made a forfeiture of my not too fmitlesse resohes. 

As for entering into the Covenant a 1,200 witnesses of my carriage 
therein are forthcoming, and, by the grace of God, I myselfe and such 
as I can either perswade or command shall punctually observe it. 
The whole country and regiments were in a fiery contention who 
should have the van of reformation. I could not have admittance 
into the government of Derry, which I promist unto myselfe as a 
sanctuary, for they were forced to Covenant : the remaining worke was 
to plunder my souldiers and their quarters. To oppose it I was not 
able ; to suffer it not willing. I had no place to march them where 
they might be maintained. 

Upon advice with my officers, the result was not only to connive at 
the soiildierp, who would sweare, out of unavoidable necessitie, but like- 
wise to personate something that might continue ourselves in our 
respective commands. Upon this, the regiment and divers who yet 
waited upon the issue of our actions, rendeyvoused where I came in as 
it were accidentally to hear the minister's exposition of it, who was 
much more sparing then I had heard him formerly. 

When he had concluded, the officers and souldiers seeing me present 
would not hold up their hands, as the fashion was, whereupon I 
spoke unto them all (and this is the oration happily your Lordship 
hath heard of) to this purpose, that the ministers both in church and 
privately had declared that there was nothing meant in the Covenant 
repugnant to the preface, videlicet, to maintaine the honor and happi- 
nesse of the King, the peace and safety of the three kingdomes, and the 
defense of our religion, and that therefore such plaine truths begged no 
exposition, which would rather intangle than satisfio men's consciences. 
If they did expect my opinion and exposition of it, it was briefly thus : 
That as for the bodie of the Covenant I could not conceave it but 
repugnant unto that which we swore to maintaine, but simply and with- 
out any relation unto it, to sweare to maintaine the King's honor and 
happinesse, the peace and safety of the three kingdomes, and the defense 
of the Protestant religion. I had in the oath of supremacy already 
sworne it, and that I would not willingly march with that officer or souldier 
into the feild who would not sweare and observe the same, and in this 
sense and no otherwise I and you, fellow-sou Idlers, lift up our hands ; 
and, to be further obliged by this our act, we doe in the presence of God 
and man disavowe, and this, upon the wittnesse of all my officers, 
souldiers, and divers others, is the plaine truth. 

Truly, my Lord, I find not my conscience anyways troubled by this 
act, but for ttie violation of it, which I shall endeavour to avoid; and 
this within a few bowers was put to the lest, for a petition signed by 
the Covenanters was addrest unto the Synod in Scotland concerning the 
ecclesiastical discipline. It was brought to me; I refused it, being 
against my oath, as being against the laws and liberties of this 
kingdome ; and with me the mayor of Derry, the English inhabitants 
of this citie, and my whole regiment concurred. The Praesbyterie is in 
all these parts, except in this citie, and where my regiment is quartered. 

My Lord, you cannot imagine the strange humours the people are 
possest withall, and into what fearefull attempts they would breake 
out if not by much moderation supprest. This was fomented by 
ministers sent out of Scotland, a taste of whose doctrine your Lordship 
will rellish in the mayor's justification. 

I£fi8. OF 





MlSQiriB OT 


Itt is easic for men at a secure distance to sweare what maglia nathey 
would doe. 'Tis easie to pay his Majestic tribute in good language. 
This airie warfar is not active enough for good spirits or those bad 
times. I shall chuse to prove my devotions allied to his Majestie's 
service to beare in my escutchion two hands active rather than three 
mouths gaping. 

Next, for breaking the Cessation,^ I must (out of the premises con- 
sidered and your designes proposed unto myselfe) submit this to your 
Lordship's wise and favourable interpretation. Had I refused to joyne 
in that act, I had made myselfe and mine a sacrifice to the multitude. 
It is all I aime at to preserve my own command, and to draw iu others, 
to be in a posture ready to serve your Lordship when you see a fitting 
time to declare yourself e for his Majestic*s honor and happjnesse ; and 
therefore all my actions must begge a pardon for the present. 

If your Lordship approve not this, let me be honored to know your 
pleasure and I shall conforme myselfe, for my life is not dear to me 
but to witnesse my duty and loyaltie to my King. 

And now, my Lord, to avoid a volume which the occurrences I daily 
encounter with would fill up by relation, I humbly offer unto you the 
present constitution of our afiaires. Sir Robert Stewart and I have had 
somme late discourses in which we have communicated mutually our 
minds hitherto reserved unto ourselves. Him I find faithfully his 
Majestie's and your Lordship's servant. 

Since my comming to the government of DeiTy [was] so much 
opposd and that by many [who] petitioned against [it] to the 
Parliament, the people are a little quelled. The large promises which 
the Covenant assured them into a beleife of performance are failed, 
the divisions in Scotland increasing, some parts of the Scotch forces 
to be drawn over, the cuntry weary of their heavy burthen, etc. 
cause the people to hearken to the judicature of this kingdome, and 
to beleve at last those laws and the state of this kingdome must 
be their appeale. This melancholy humor of discontent, joyned with 
the reviving apprehension of the laws of this kingdome must be wrought 
upon. There are not above one or two considerable persons to be 
wonne. The chiefe is Lieutenant-Colonel Sanderson, of Sir Robert 
Stuart's regiment. His character is thus : A good souldier, and many 
yeares a Luitenant-Colonel in Germanic ; he is discontented that his 
preferment is no better. All arguments worke not so much upon him, 
as a little monie, and an assurance from your Lordship of somme prefer- 
ment, or a standing companie. If this man were settled, all Sir Robert's 
regiment were sure to him ; the other partie were a bodie without a 

My regiment I will answer for, and eight of the ten companies in 
Derry. Sir John Conningham, that in Sir William Stewart's absence 
commands his regiment, is a man of no action, and Sir Robert and I will 
mold him well enough, which we daily are upon, as likewise upon his 
officers, who begin to hearken to reason. 

Now, my Lord, if this part of the country were reduced to the 
obedience of the government of this kingdome, the rest of the North 
must, in spite of their best indeavourp. Colonel Hill's regiment of 
horse stands well afiected that way, so doth my Lord Con no way's 
regiment, and so will Sir William Cole. Our Northerne ai-mie is so 
equally poised, that if but one regiment should start it would much 
weaken the whole. 

* With the Irish Confederates, see " History of the Irish Confederation, and War 
in Ireland, 1641-1649." Dablin, 1891. 


Therefore, my Lord, I and Sir Bobert are of this opinion : if your j^^S^'ig^, 
Lordship would be pleasd to send Sir Patrick Wembs [Wemys] to Obmohsb. 
Lisnegarvy as upon an occasional! journie, (to whom Sir Bobert 154415 
bath wrotti to that purpose,) I and Sir Bobert would take an occasion 
to meet him, and there to understand what your Lordship would 
have donne, and in what readinesse your affuires are, and with him 
to send a letter to Liutenant-Golonel Sanderson, expressing the report 
you have heard of his abilities, and that you impute his former 
carriage [to] somme discontents and wants, and lo assure him of 
your rccoiumendations to his Majestie, and with the first opportunitie 
that he shall have experiment of your good opinion of him, and to 
promise him a standing companie, and moreover, to intrust Sir Patrick 
Wembs with one 80 peices as a guift from your Lordship unto him, 
this, and the letter not to be delivered but by Sir Bobert's aduise and 
mine, to which if we assent, we will oblige ourselves to returne your 
Lordship such satisfaction that you shall not repent. 

My Lord, businesse of this nature cannot be wrought without somme 
chardge, the importance will be more 40,000 pounds, and opportunities 
slipt are easier sought for then found. I suppose, under favour, delays 
are dangerus, for the iron must be struck whilst it is hot ; and in this 
long silence of the Parliament the people of themselves are looking 
homeward. They are patients welfprsedisposed, and only want animation 
from an agent which now may be seasonably brought in from above. 

In the next place we are all waiting upon the returne of Sir Henry 
Tichburne. Tour Lordship hath a hard game to play as ever was dealt, 
a Wolfe's eares are but a ticklish hold. I pray God direct your Lordship 
in a matter of that great im])ortance in which your Lordship and 
our po.sterities are concerned. Pardon my devotion if I humbly offer 
my opinion. 

A peace with the Irish is generally a harshe sound to every eare, and 
the reason of this is diverse. Som in conscience hold no toleration of 
.their religion ; som judge the bloud of their frinds yet unrevenged ; 
somme their pei*Bonal losses not to be repaired ; others that it is beyond 
the reach of state to provide for our securitie in the future, and not a 
few because the cuntry is pleasant, and held too good for them. In 
England there are many Adventurers.^ 

Where this opinion is so universall (and consider what planets rule) it 
will be a very unthankfull office of whosoever ingageth himself in this 
worke, and the malice be shall contract is better avoided then singly 
encountred. Therefore, if theer be a necessitie to transact such a 
matter, 'tis wisdoroe to have many sharers, and those of such a nature 
as may both preserve your Lordship and themselves. 

This, in breife, is by a Parliament in this kingdome ; this will take 
both aspersions from his Majestie, which now is considerable when the 
people sit on the bench and stand not at the barre; it is a buckler 
betwixt your Lordships and laws a posteriori ; and if though many 
yeares after any inconvenience should ensue (which Grod forbid) the 
violence of our postereties would not deface your tombe as a cabinet 
actor of so publique a concernement. Now there is no doubt of 
effecting whatsoever the justice of your Lordship's thoughts would 

> For landit in Ireland.

propound. I kuow the composore of jour houee^ the last time I 
i3ate. Many of the most violent spirits are away, there are many 
Tacant pkces oaght to be supplied by moderate persons. To this 
purpose if Sir Maurice Eustace^ cause the darke of the House of 
Commons to give him a list of such vacant places, and writs immediately 
do issue for new elections, [it] will advance the worke. Heer are many 
members in the army that were not formerly present all of a sober temper. 

Heer are ten places void which we can make good by legal 
elections, and I have wi^ote to Sir Manrtce Eustace to cause writs to be 
sent downe, and I shall see them returned, so that there is no dispute 
but that the moderate party shall sway all at pleasure. Pray, my Lord, 
consider of this point. 

The estranging of your Lordship's commands in these pai*ts doth much 
difficultete this worke ; for they must be won on by degrees, they must 
first smell to the saddle before it be clapt on, and such commands first 
presented that carry the very letter of the law and obedience in their 
forehead, which at length will ussher in the strictest. 

A second course may be, with submission to your Lordship's better 
judgment, to call your colonells up to judgment. The picture of a dead 
friend will beget remorse, but the living image of authoritio will make 
disobedience fcdl doune before it. ^ 

Besides the ill-disposition of ourselves, something of the breeding 
of these present distempers may be ascribed to that necessitated 
independancie in marshall affaires, where all colonells commanding 
as so many generalJs may prove so many Phaetons in the chariot of the 
sun, and how far their counsaile may be intertatned in the treatie of 
peace will deserve your Lordship's consideration. Ingage the principal 
officers and you ingage the army, and consequentlie the kingdome. 

My Lord, I perswade myselfe, this were good policie to send for us 
up and som of the field officers. 

The ground may be very good it j(pardon my dictating) it were but to 
expresse unto us the tender sense yon have of our welbeing, as being 
members of this kingdome whose persons and estates must answer to those 
laws which we have virtually consented unto to be the squares and judge8 
of our actions, that our condition is different from those who caiTy their 
houses on their backs ; that you have nothing to propound but what the 
most prsejudicial judgement must conclude to be condueeable as to their 
particular service to the publique ; that comportment in managing this 
war, the exposal of your person to all danger, will convince the most 
obstinate, and so to admonish us that whilst you rule by the law we 
should live according unto the law, and that this you have done to 
leave us without excuse, and to assure us of your best mediation to 
replant us in his Majestie's favour. 

My Lord, 1 know the aspect and the naturall expressions that will 
flow from the instice of such a subject will be answerd with a Vive 
Ormonde. Besides, this very act will cast us into a great jealousie with 
the Parliament, and that being apprehended by all the principal ofilcersof 
the army to be so undeservedly cast upon hem, will — [«c.] 

I intreat your Lordship to make a favourable construction of this 
medley. I protest to Q-od I meane well, and shall act my part in every 
sense ; I only desier, if your Lordship's better judgment approve not of 

^ Of FarliameDt, Dublin, in which Mervyn -wao member for Tyrone. 
' Speaker of the Hou^e of Commons, Ireland. 


this, to lei me know either by parole or any other way what your 
Lordship will advise me to, for except in these parts I may be serviceable 
to his Majestie I will continue in this perplexitie of mind I labour in. 

I in treat your Lordship forget not to write a courteous letter to Sir 
Robert Stuart, for be tould me that were he assured your Lordship did 
rightly understand him, he would venter his life to serve yon. Fray, 
my Lord, answer my desiers in this. 

Since I first wrote this letter, we understand Sir Patrick Wembs 
[Wemjg] and diverse others are committed. If it should prove so, 
which I beleve not, we had been in a good condition when he had 
knowne all our minds. Sir Thomas Lucas in his place were the onely 
man, or whomsoever your Lordship confides in most. I have dischardged 
my heart and my conscience. Whatsoever your Lordship hears of my 
actions or words, beleve the ends are to render visible my loyaltie to my 
kinge, and to witnesse that none more faithfully honors your Lordship 
then doth your Excellencies most obliged and devoted servant.

to receive and distribute in our name to those your adhearents, soe your 
deliverance from the mine, whether by the losse of your lives aud 
fortunes, or by a more miserable thraldotne prepared for you by the 
rebells, increases very much the assiduity wherewith we endeavoured to 
procure those assistances that may enable us to recover the rights of our

4. " You are to let them know that we repose greate confidence in 
their fidelity, and the continuance of their good affections to us, not- 
withstanding the greate discouragements that our late misfoitunes and 
the prevalence of the enemy in that kingdom may have given them, and 
that we desire them to be assured of our constant and affectionate care 
of that our kingdom, and our just sencs of their incessant indeavours for 
and suflerings in our service, and that we remsine steadfast to those 
graces and conditions derived to our good subjects by the articles of the 
late peace, whereunto we shall, with greate cheerefulnes, make sucl. 
further addition as their constancy in these tymes of tryal shall merit. 

5. " You are to returne, as speedyly as possibly you can, with a perfect 
accoumpt of the condition of that oar kingdom, of the number of the 
forces there, and the preparations and resolutions for our future service,

" To the Commissioners imployed by my Lord of Clanricard to the 
Duke of Lorraine : 

"1. To approve of what hath been done in Ireland by my Lord of 
Clanricard in the treaty with the Duke of Lorraine's Minister. 

'^ 2. To signifie to the agents. Sir Nicholas Plunckett and Mr. 
Browne, her Majestie's sense of the sad condition of his Majestie*s 
affaires and of the people of Ireland, and to prof esse her readyness to lay 
hold on all occasions that- may redeeme them from the distresse they are 
in, particulerly her readynes to give the Duke of I^orraine all the 
encouragement in hor power to proceede in sending rclieCe thither for 
the ends proposed by him ; that therefore shee desires them by virtue of 
their commission to know what it is that the Duke expects from her in 
that particuler, that if it be what may consist with his Majestie's honour, 
the interest of his Crowne, and may be done without apparent danger to 
his person, or interuption to his atfaires elswheare, shee will be wanting 
in noething that may nroceede from her, tending to the preservation of 
that people in their obedience to his Majestic and in prosperity to 
themselves ; that shee is confident that the Duke of Lorraine realy 
intends what he professes, and will therefore propose noething that may 
derogate from his Majestie in honour or interest, as she conceives some 
of the propositions made by the Duke's Minister apparantly doe, and 
weare therefore with much resentment rejected by the Marquis of 
Clanricard, who being a person interested in the of relligion, and 
concearned in fortune and allianco in Ireland, shee would not willingly 
appeal^ to come shorte oi him in care of or affection to the King's i ights 
and reputaciou ; that iF, notwithstanding all their endeavours to 
moderate those particulers, they find them insisted on, shee knowes noe 
power deputed by his Majestie to make such an agreement, and ttiat in 
such case of soe high and unusuall a proposicion shee knows noe good 
expedient but to dispatch an expresse to the King to give him full 
intbrmatiou of it and of the state of Ireland as it is represented from my 
Lord of Clanricard and to expect his pleasure."

in giving your Grace this pi*esent trouble, but the case lyes so hard 
upon me, that I am not without hopes of your pardon. In confidence 
of your wonted favour, then, your Grace may be pleased to remember a 
petition preferred against me at Counsel by C[olonel] Gorges, to which, 
besides my answare, I offered severall matters against him whicfi I am 
ready to prove ; all which he having most reason to believe might with 
noe great difficulty be made out, he has made his application to the 
Society, etc., in London, thereby endeavouring to possesse them that I 
discourage the English interest in that plantation of thiere's and buoy up 
a Scotch, wherein, notwithstanding, they cannot instance any one thing 
don by me either like it or in order to it. Upon which (as I am 
certainly informed) they have made their addresses to your Grace and 
his Majesty, the e^ect of which has beene this, that the said Collonel 
gives it out in Derry that his Majesty has superseded my patent, thereby 
disheartning the rest of my witnesses, as he has bought off the others.

domes were soe much in agitation the last terme, I durst noe more 
presume to trouble your Grace with the ten yeares' oppression I have 
received from this citty than that (being in my right senses) I have 
endeavoured to save my little fardle when the ship was sinking. But 
now necessity urges and the sum of my case is this. I was about 12 
yeares since (by your Grace's favor) made Recorder of Londonderry, 
where I had not long beene ere one Alderman Norman had perswaded 
the citty that the election was theire's and not his Majestie's. Articles 
were preferred against, me to the Common Council ; Mr. Rynes, 
Recorder of Kilkenny, chosen by them into my office, notwithstanding 
all the crime they returred againsit me into the chicfe place of this 
kingdome was, that they had elected one Ralph King (seven years before 
that time dead) into my office, and that hee then executed the said office. 
I was restored and, in hopes of peace, forbore to bring my action ; but 
nothing can prevaile with dangerous ppirits ; he has putt them upon me 
againe and declares he will not give mee over till he leave mee as poor as 
a ratt. I dayly expect to be turned out by them, contrary to law, 
without any scire facias brought to avoyd my letters patents. This, my 
most gracious Lord, is my oppression. What I humbly beseech is, the 


MSS. 01 common privilege of the worst man, that I may be heard, and no tares 

Obmondb,' sowne in my absence ; which alsoe I the rather begg, because it is given 

~^ out that the said Alderman has abeady don my businesse with your 

Grace. I am sorry I have the occasion of complaint now. A modest 

man is not for this world, and if the kingdom of Heaven be to be taken 

with violence, God helpe him even there allsoe."

last, and one other from Mr. Samuel Hobson, not long sinc^ one of the 
shenffs, and- now treasurer of that county. Mr. Hobson's letter I left 
with your Grace this morning. The words of the Deane's (for as much 
as relates to the publique) are theise : ' You have heere, enclosed, Samuel 
Hobson's letter, signifying that passage concerning Osborne, that who- 
soever killed the Archbishop^ of St. Andrews in Scotland did God good 
service. Osborne spoke it to Forrester, my curate, and others in the 
jayle of Derry ; Forrester told the Mayor of it, but nothing is due to 
Osborne. Upon the receipt of this, I consulted with myselfe, what 
was fitt for me to doe in it, and considering there was some difference 
between the citty and me, I thought it prudent to lett it sleepe. But 
Laving this last post received one other from the said Deane, dated the 
17th instant, the news of which (other than what relates to myselfe'i are 
these : When your opportunity serves to speak with the Primat, pray 
tell him what the Presbyterians say heere, namely, that their brethren

[9.] — Earl of Westmeath to Ormonbe. 

1682, June 27. Dublin. — " I am very sensible it must be troublesome 1682, 

to your Grace to be disturbed with my addresses, considering the many 

and great affaires you are consulted in by his Majestic. However, the 

necessitous condition of my family now whoUey depending of your 

Grace's favours, makes me presume to acquaint your Grace that by 

the charge of two of my daughters and one sonn, yet unpref erred, 

and my grandchildren, and the payment of the portion of my 

last daughter I marryed, will leave but a very inconsiderable estate to 

my grandsonn, unfitt to supporte the quality like to descend on him. I 

have upon former occations, by your Grace's assistance, sollicited his 

Majestic for the quit-rents of my auncient estate, being deprived of his 

Majesties gracious intentions, expressed in his declaration, for to see me 

restored ; and, by your Grace's help and assistance, 1 had then a promise 

from his Majestie to gett the said quit-trents after the end ot this farme 

now soone expired. I consider that I cannot make my application in a 

fitter time than before the commencement of the new I'arme, and knowe 

that I can never expect to prevaile therein for myselfe or grandsonn 

but by your Grace's assistance, which ca»i never be casyer to your 

Grace or more advantaoreous to me than whon vour Grace is at Court.. 

Therefore I leave myselfe and family at your Gnice's feete. And being 

not able for want of health and meanes to sollicit your Grace in person 

upon this occation, I have sent the bearer with this my humble address 

to your Grace, and I hope your Grace will be pleased to represent my 

condition to his Majestie, and preserve a family for ever devoted to 

your service, as well us your Graces most humble and obliged servant." 

Addressed : " For his Grace, the Duke of Ormond, Lord Lieutenant 
General and General Governor of Ireland, London. These." 

Endorsed by Ormonde : " E. of Westmeath's, 27 June. Rec. 13 
July [16]82." 

[10.] — Charles Willoughbt, M.D., to Ormonde. 

1682, Sept. 16. — *^ Among all the errors of my life, none has soe 
sensibly afflicted me as the oversight of lookeing for an Irish employment 
without your Grace's approbation. 

"My Lord, it is not the businesse of this paper to presseyour Grace 
with fresh instances either in my late pretences or any new ones, but to 
redeeme (as much as in me lyes) my late proceedings from any the least 
suspicion of disrespect to yt ur Grace, and to assure your Grace thereof, 
my first application was made to the Earle of Arran, who moved your 
Grace therin before you left this kingdome, and, after your departure, 
my Lord Deputy wrote to your Grace aud my Lord Hyde both, on my 
behalfe, I thought I could not move your Grace by a more acceptable 


Mabquib'of hand, and if it was mj crime that I did not make more frequent 
Oemootdb. addi-esses, I can say for myselfe that I acted according to his 
1683. Excellencies instructions, who commanded me to minde your Grace 

of his letter, when the settlement of the farme^ should draw neere, and 
according to my owne sense of the great respect due to your Grace 
whome I thought it not fit to importune with the daily visits of a petty 
soUicitour, and I hope, my Lord, if scanned with candour, this will 
appeare an error on the right hand, and will relish rather of excesse of 
respect than any want therof. 

" If, upon either of these applications, I had understood how ungrate- 
full it would be to your Grace, I hnd desisted upon the smallest 
discountenance, and not have hazarded soe deepe a wound us your 
Grace's displeasure for an imprudence a gentler stroke would then have 
sufficiently corrected. 

'^ My Lord, my education has been liberall and universall, and I was 
always vaine enough to thinke I had abilities to serve my King and 
country in a superior sphere than the managery of a glyster-pipe, a trade 
of so much slavery that I never intended to follow otherwise than for 
want of better employment. I did not believe myselfe inferiour or lesse 
fit for businesse than other persons I saw formerly admitted to the same 
trusts, nor could I suppose myselfe incapacitated by the study of 
physicke, when I had already observed that the civill and common 
Jaw were neither of them looked upon as a sufficient exclusion. 

"I was al\«ays above seeking an employment meerly for maintenance, 
jand though I have sometimes found the plea of a wasted fortune good 
rhetoricke, yet I never designed tho repairing those breaches but by 
services reall and meritorious ; I did not beg your Grace's good 
character at this time to disparage it with slender performances, but 
because I knew I could serve his Majestic with abilitie, and was 
resolved to doe it with integrite, and it was not the least o^ my hopes 
that, in the discharge of my dutie, I should become knowne to your 
Grace and soe make out a right to that character which, if new 
bestowed, would have been precarious. 

'^ My Lord, I always thought, not having been formerly employed in 
the like nature noe inconsiderable objection, being well assured his 
Majesty has in the crowde of his subjects as able persons that are 
swallowed up in obscuritic as those that wanton in the sunshine of his 
favours, I could not thinke it an immodest request to the Duke of 
Ormond to desire to be tryed where perfect strangers to his Grace are 
accepted, nor ought I to believe myselfe the lesse acceptable for being 
the only surviving branch of a family that always served bis Majestic 
and Koyall father under your Gituse's intuition. 

*^ But since your Grace's pleasure is otherwise, I shall devote all my 
future endeavours to a calme expectation of your Grace's commands, 
and if my zeale for my owne Tindication has transported me to any 
indecency, 1 beg your Grace to interpret it a pardonable imprudence in 
a person who breathes nothing but respect for your Grace's person and 
illustrion? family, wishing from my soul that his Majestie may be well 
served in the choice he has made, and your Grace satisfied. 

** My Lord, thus much 1 thought it necessary to say to vindicate my 
proceedings from such misinterpretations as (for aught I know), the 
imprudence of my solicitour might expose it to, and if, in what I have 
said, I prove soe fortunate as to succeed in assuring your Grace there

Not for the King's renowne, 
But to advance the Pope againe, 
To be supreme and into Spayne 

For to translate his crowne. 

Duncannon'* it hath made them bold, 
'J hey thinke now there is ne'er a hold 

That can their force withstand. 
Poore Inchiquin, with all his men, 
They make no more to vanquish them 

Than they were in their hand. 

Thus doe they brag what they would doCi 
They will have Cork and Youghall too. 

When Munster they had got, 
Then into Connaught would they gang 
The Cootes and Ormsbyes thence to bang ; 

At length turn out the Scot. 

Thus these brave rebels hope to be 
Among themselves a nation friie 

In state and in religion. 
They doe but purpose like to men. 
But God will sure dispose of them 

Uiito their own confusion.

^' To his Excellence, my Lorde Lieutenant of Irelaode, etc., this poore 
myte of a poeme be consecrated, dedicated and presented. 

" May it please your Excellence, — Scarce a man now in this distressed 
kingdome, nor heeretofore in Englande, Scotlande, Fraunce and other 
kingdomes, states, and republiques, whither the iniquity of these times 
hath chased me, exhibited himselfe more laborious and actire to serTO 
his King and country, or to exhort his fel]owe subjects to loyalty and all 
due obedience, since thoise more than civil commotions have distracted 
us, than myselfe ; which my several manuscripts (some of which are 
heere to be displayed), togither with those who entertained familiar dis- 
course f and frequent conferences with me in those forraigne partes, and 
nowe heere, and there dwelling in this province, can evidently con vinee. 
And hardly hath any man been more crossed and thwarted in such 
laudable enterprises than myselfe (heere living, as I can make it appeare, 
in voluntary exile as in other places, rather than to deserte my King and 
the equity of his cause against those that have most perniciously raljed 
arms against him, bis crowne and dignity), who have effected little in 


reguarde partly that some maDuscripts, issues all 06 mine own weake H^ounoi 
braine, which I intended to commit to the presse, for the publiKe good Oimomm. 
and general emolumcnte of all that understande English, the same 
approved by learned men of and aboutt his city), have beene delayed to 
bee licensed ; and, partly that certain money es, which T need much for the 
accomplishing the same notwithstanding your order, are as yet detained 
from me by an unworthy and an ungrateful gentleman of this lande, 
called James Furlonge, who had beene turned a-rovinge in Fraunce with 
his two servants, but for me releivinge him in his greatest extreamityes. 
True it is, and notoriously knowne, this Furlonge, some yeares since^ 
killed a gentleman, his own kinsman, very fowlly, without any punish- 
ment, or justice executed or exacted against him for soe hainous a crime ; 
and nowe, arraunged in this county, not above five miles off, he 
tirannizeth over the poore people there, drives his cattle and horses up 
and downe where hee listeth, trespasses on many, as he hath done 
uppon my patience these 6ight and twenty moiiethes, by violently keep- 
inge from mee the money I lente him, soe long since ; and still will he 
proceede in such contumacious courses, and will not be brought in to 
aunswer in any courte of justice, unlesse your Excellencie vouchsafe by 
stronge hande to fetch him in, and give satisfaction to me and many 
others whom he hath basely injured, as shall be cleiirely demonstrated 
against him, by writinges under his owne hande, by testimony es of 
eminent witnesses, his neighbours' letters, and sundry such evidences* 

** Notwithstandinge theise maine obstacles, which, from Whitsqntide 
last that I arrived out of Fraunce hither, hath hindered me and doth 
still from the presse, I hath ad ventured on this poeme to your Excellencie, 
in this coarse manuscript, to declare the torrent of afiaires succintely 
that have rushed through our three deplorable kingdome? and princedome 
of Wales, since theise intestine broiles have made strange and dismal 
irruptions through them all theise too many yeares ; and to animate true, 
faithful and loyal hearts of this kingdome to obay his Majesty, your 
Excellencie, and other magistrates by both of you most lawfully con- 
stituted and appointed over it. Nowe to this I was induced because I 
had the most sublime honour to crop the first fruitcs of my education 
from Mr. Roger Conyors, at Pinchley by London, which your Excellencie 
there studyinge some space of time, not a little illustrated. Be then 
pleased to vouchsafe this rude peice some roome amongst your more 
weighty affiiires, and I doubt not very speedily to gi*aspe some emergent 
occasion, both in Latine and English, all sortes of verse and prose, 
seriously and sportingely to produce treatises in a more high and elevate 
straine to maintaine and support the justice and equity of our late and 
now raigningo Soveraigne's cause against his most notoriously trayterou% 
rebellious, and bloodthirstinge subjects, especially those that now infest 
this land, and vindicate from time to time (as it may fall out expedient), 
your Excellencie's proceedinges against them, and the managinge of your 
greatest affaires, to gagge the mouths of such as affect and ambition 
nothinge more than to calumniate or deprave all the actions of their 
commaunders, superiours, magistrates and officers, or, at least, to blast and 
obscure them, and to drive or egge on others to perpetrate the like mis- 
demeanours, (1 should call them impietyes,) to precipitate such as well as 
themselves into disobedience, contumacy, stnbbornesie and refractori- 
nesse, to tbwarte not only regal, but legal authority : and whatsoever 
shall on any just occasion be traced by the pen, for the maine parte, 
shall as promptly be maintained in the same, if urgent^ serious, or 
ponderous, by the life of your Excellencie'a humble and devoted

Okmoitdb. 1681, May 29. London. — " Tho' I am conscious to mjself how verj 

1681. ^^^^^^ reason I have heretofore had to be fond of my owno pretentions to 
poetry, yet, at this time, I can hardly forbeare being too much pleas*d 
with myself, and reflecting with too much advantage on those lines ^ 
which have had the honour of your Grace's generous approbation. 
Thus much, my Lord, in my owne favour; but I ought) withall, to 
acknowledge that it was neither nature nor art in me, but the greatness 
of the subject that enforc'd that poem ; and I am persuaded that the ju6>t 
sense of his being the glory and the delight of the English nation would 
have inspired the meanest capacity with more sublime thoughts, had not 
the sorrowful resentments of so universal a loas depriv'd the better part 
of mankind of ihc use of thinking. The illustrious Earl of Ossory's 
fame and memory will live in nobler monuments than those of verse, and 
the histories of more than these three little kingdomes must be ungrate- 
fully imperfect if they pass over in silence the great actions he has 
done, and how much the latest posterity will be indebted to him for his 
kindness to their Huncestors. For my owne pai-t, I am bound to return 
your Grace my humblest thanks for your unexpected princely favour, 
which I shall leave for ever to be the chiefest honor of my family, to 
3hew in after ages that one of the name was so considerably fortunate in 
your Grace's favour."

1662, August 2. — ^A miaate of letters written to the officers in chief m^Sjib'op 
commnnding the several troops and companies in his majesty's Osmoitdb. 
standing armj in Ireland : i'^ 

'^ Having, upon our arrivall in this kingdom, in the first place 
entered upon the consideration of the present state and condition of his 
majesty's army, and finding the numbers of the several troops and foot 
companies mustered upon tne 5th day of March last to exceed the estab- 
lishment transmitted by his majesty out of England for the constant 
payment of his and of his standing army in this his kingdom, wee have 
thought fit that the said troops of horse and foot companies bee imme- 
diately reduced to the number of threescore and seven private horsemen, 
thrive corporals and two trumpets, besides the four commissioned officers 
in each troop, and fourescore and six private soldiers, one drum, two 
Serjeants, and three corporalls, besides the three commissioned officers 
in each foot company, according to the said establishment. And there- 
fore we have thought fit, hereby to require you forthwith to return to 
the commissary of the musters the nnmes of all such as last came into 
your troop (except the servants of the officers) as do exceed the num- 
ber of thi*eescore and seven, in which number the servants of the 
respective officers, viz., two to each captain and one to each commissioned 
officer are to bee included, that such as are supernumeraries to the 
king's establishment may be disbanded and a present course taken for 
the stating and satisfaction of their arrears from the 21st of October, 
1661 till the 27th of July last, the day of our arrival in this kingdom. 
And when the said soldiers are satisfy ed for their arrears, and disbanded 
as aforesaid, you are to take particular care that their arms be delivered 
into the next public store, and an account S3nt of them to the master of 
the ordnance with an acknowledgement from the clerk of any such store 
of the receipt of those arms, and if by reason of the present necessity 
such as have merited in his majesty's service shall happen to be dis- 
banded, you are to assure such that core shall be taken for putting them 
into employment upon the next vacancies whether by death or other- 
wise, which in effect will be of great advantage to them since they are 
not only to receive satisfaction for their arrears but assured of being 
thus received into his majesty's service as occasion shall bee offi^red. 
And in regard we are informed that the soldiers have been constrained 
for want of their pay to run in debt in their several quarters, you are to 
cause an accompt t(» bee immediately transmitted to ur of all those debts 
by them respectively incurred for their subsistence in their quarters ; 
with the names of the persons and the places of their dwellings respec- 
tively to whom such debts are due, that a course may be taken for the 
payment of such debts to the country out of their arreares, it being but 
just and reasonable that the country haveing out of their good affection 
to his majesty's service afforded them subsistence in their necessities 
should not be endangered thereby but receive all due encouragement 
and satisfaction for the same out of their said arrears and as wee cannot 
but take notice with what patience and loyalty the whole army hath of 
late endured the want of their pay, and the many hardships incident 
thereunto^ soe we thinke fit upon this occasion to return our very hearty 
thanks unto both officers and soldiers for the same, assuring them as 
hereby we doe that we shall hereafter bee very careful of their constant 
payment fi'om the said 27th day of July, according to his majesty's said 
establishment. And in further testimony of our care of them we are 
now making provision for the clothing of the soldiera out of their 
arrears that so their growing entertainments may come clearly into thetr

- Aug. 23. — Letter to companies and troops concerning arrears, super- 
numeraries, etc. : 

'' In our letter of the second day of this month we gave you to under- 
stand, that his majesty had transmitted out of England the establish- 
ment by which his army in this kingdom is to be paid^ and that all 
those which were above the said establishment were to bee reduced, 
and that care should bee taken for the satisfaction of their arrears and 
payment of their debts in their respective quarters incurred from the 
II th February 1660 to the 27th of July last, upon your returning up 
the names of the persons which were to be disbanded as supernumer- 
aries to his majesty's establishment and the debts they owed in their 
respective quarters for their maintenance* And as therein we evidenced 
our care for the payment of such supernumeraries, so we thinke fit by 
these our letters to acquaint you that we have taken also care for satis- 
faction of such arreares as have been incurred by yourself and your 
company since the 21st of October 1661 to the 27th of July last. And 
that you may the better understand what way we have put their satis- 
faction into, wee thought good to let you know that wee have set apart 
for the payment of the arrears due to this his majesty's army from the 
21st of October 1661 to the 27th of July aforesaid all that his majesty's 
revenue which arises out of the old Crown rents and the new rents pay* 
able by adventurers, soldiers and transplanted persons, which, according 
to the best estimate can be made of the same amounts to sixty thousand 
pounds yearly, which, by gales conmiencing at Michaelmas next, shall be 
wholly set apart for satisfaction of the said arrears, and that branch of 
his majesty's revenue being the most considerable and certain, we there- 
fore set it apart for payment of the said arrears, which in course half- 
yearly shall be satisfyed, of which we require you to acquaint all those 
under your command concerned therein. And as we omil t nothing in our 
power which may testify our care of this his majesty's army so we 
doubt not but those of it, will by their faithfulness, obedience and 
diligence in their severall stations invite us to a further perseverance

And whereas we formerly required that the reduction of the super- M88. of 
numeraries of your company should be of such ns were last taken in to OBMom)^ 
pay, except the officers' servants, viz., to every captain two, and one to 
each other commissioned officer, we do hereby think fitt to lett jou 
know, that if you are satisfied that any of the said soldiers by you last 
received, as aforesaid, are in all respects fitter to be continued then 
some other in your said company that you return us the names of so 
many in the said company as are less fitt to be continued as may reduce 
the same to the establishment, videlicet, eighty-six private soldiers, 
besides commissioned and non-commissioned officers and one drummer.

of his majesty's army that there are allowed in troops and companies 
persons disaffected to his majesty's service, and severall who are super- 
annuated and unable to do duty, and others negligent of their duties by 
reoson of their families being far distant and remote from their respective 


MSB. OF garrisons, and many careless of keeping themselves well mounted and 
lUsQTTis Of armed. To the end therefore that such persons may be removed out of

any such persons under their command, or any who are desirous to go 
oifand to receive their arrears with the standing army, do discharge 
them out of their respective troops and companies, the officers com- 
manding in chief giving them a discharge under their hands, therein 
mentioning that they are not discharged by a court-marshall, whereby 
they might be made uncapable of receiving their arrears, but that they 
shall have the arreares due unto them since the 11th of February, 1660, 
satisfied with the standing army, which persons so discharged are to be 
allowed on the musters until the 28th of this instant September, if they 
have so long done duty, and that in the rooms of such so discharged the 
officers commanding in chief each troop and company do enlist such 
persons as are Protestants and well affected to his majesty's service and 
as near as may bee allowed on the muster commencing the said 28th of 
September, instant. And that after the muster taken the 28th of 
September aforesaid, the troopes and companyes being completed to the 
number allowed, no officer be permitted to change or discharge any 
soldier other than their servants allowed of out of any troop or company 
without being convicted of some crime at a court-marshall, or by 
speciall order from us, whereof the muster master general and his

account taken of all serviceable, unserviceable and want of arms in each 
troop and company of his majesty's army in this kingdom, we doe

strictly in charge to your deputy commissaries that they take an account 
of the same at the next muster, and to make returne unto us, to the end 
such further course may bee taken therein for the supply thereof, as we 
shall think fit. And whereas wee did, by our order of the 24th of 
September last, think fit that after the muster taken on the 28th of 
September afoi^said, no officer be permitted to change or discharge any 
soldier, other than their servants aUowed of, out of any troop or company 
without being convicted of some crime at a court marshall, or by special 
order from us, yet we, takeing into our consideratiou the short time of 
notice that the officers of troops had of our said order and that they 
might have just cause to discharge some more of the stAdiers of the said 
troops and companies than what they did pursuant to our said order, we 
do wiU and require you, that if any officers have discharged any of their 
soldiers since the muster taken the 28th of September last, you are to 
allow thereof notwithstanding our former order, who are to have their 
arrears satisfied with the standing army, so that such persons as be pre- 
sented in their be not allowed before the day the said troop and 
company is mustered, they being Protestants and well affected to- his 
majesty's service.

absence, nor to allow any other commissioned officer than such who can 
produce their commissions from us, and the same entered in your office, 
to the end we may r:'ceive an account from you, as from time to time 
shall be required. 

'^ And whereas we are informed, that divers officers who are present at 
the musters, do immediately after the musters taken depart from their 
respective garrisons without our licence, contrary to the articles of war, 
and to the neglect of his majesty's service, and that many soldiers who 
attend their musters are presently after licenced by their officers to be 
absent from their garrisons, contrary to the said articles of war, to the 
end that such offences may be the more certainly made known unto us, 
we will and require yon to give it in charge to your deputy commissaries 
by all wayes and meanes to inform themselves of such officers and soldiers 
as offend herein, and to returne the names of them with their next 
muster rolls, that such punishment may be inflicted on them, as by said 
articles of war is set down, or as we shall think fit."

alreaiJy trusted the soldiers beyond their abilities, your grace will be 

pleased to order one montli's pay for the pc-titioner's company more than 

the rest of the army have from time to time. And by reason the muster 

master cannot at present give a cert ifi( ate of such arms and ammunition 

as the petitioner allegeth to be wanting, because of the remotenesse of the 

place, and that he hath not been there of a long time, because of the 

dangerous passage thither, I do also humbly ofTer, that, if it shall Feem

my humble opinion that they may be taken into consideration when the 

rest of the platformes throughout the whole kingdom shall be considered 

of, many of them being in the same condition, all which is humbly 

submitted. — Mount Alexander."

commanding each of the said troops of the receipt of the said tents, and 
their engagements under their hands respectively, to return the same 
in good condition into his majesty's stores, as aforesaid, shall be a 
sufficient warrant." 

June I. — To [Thomas Butler J earl of Ossory, Kilkenny : ** We 
having taken into our consideration the present state and condition of 
his majesty's revenue in this kingdom, and finding tlie same will not 
discharge the charge of the marshal and civil lists established for this 
kingdom, by means whereof we cannot according to our willingness and 
desire constantly pay his majesty's army according to the number of 
soldiers now established, we have therefore thought fit to reduce the 
number of each troop to forty-five (irivate soldiers, requiring you hereby 
that the same be accordingly done, in the doing whereof you are to take 
care to reduce such of your troop who you conceive are disaffected to 
hia majesty's present government, and sucli who are best able to live of 
themselves, and live remote from their garrisons, ijeglectin^j; their duties, 
appeareing only on mnster days to the great neglect of his majesty's 
service. And we do asbure you that by the blessing of God we shall 
take such care that the army for the future be constantly paid every 
three monthi*, and for the better encouragement of such who are now to 
be reduced, we have signed warrants for three monthp* pay ending the 
27th of April last, and that such of them who aie allowed upon the 
muster taken the 28th of April shall likewise receive that month's pay, 
that so they may receive full satisfaction for the time they served his 
majesty ; to whicii end we require you to send a list of the. names of 
those reduced to the muster master general, and that such of them who 
have the ten months' arrears due unto them from the 2i8t of October, 
1661, to the 27th of July, 1662, shall be stated and satisfied with the 
standing army. 

And whereas we conceive that the soldiers so to be reduced 
may bee indebted unto the inhabitants of the several garrisons where 
they did or now do quarter since the 11th of February, 1660, and 
being desirous that the debts contracted by them should be SAtisfyed 
to those who did entrust them for necessaiy provisions for themselves 
and horses, c<»nceiving it just and reasonable, that they, having out of 
their good affection to his majesty's service, afforded them subsistence 
in their necessities, should not be endamaged thereby, but receive all due 
encouragement and satisfaction for the same out of their arrears for the 
ten months aioremcniiontd, to which end we require that tickets bee 
given to the several inhabitants, and that such who have none of that 
arrear due unto them, we think it fit that you take cure that reasonable 
satisfaction be made out of the four months' pay now to bo received to 
the panics to whom they are indebted ; you are to take care that the 
arms of the several soldiers now to bee reduced be safely deli vexed to the 
store next adjaci^nt and to give notice thereof to the master of the

— — . <* The neceasaries wanting in the garrisons of Arran and 
Boffin, humbly offered to your grace's consideration to be supplied i 

'' In the port of Arran there are wanting two long sakers or demi- 
culverins that will command the harbour, there being in it five iron 
minions and two danouhciilverins so old and faulty that they are not able 
to clear the harbour, if occasion requires. 

^* There is also, because the island afibrda no fire, but what is brought 

. trom the msain lan4» an:absolute necessity of a boat of twelve, or fourteen 

ton, the present boat beiag^f that burden, but so old an4 uuaerviceiable 





M88. or 

Vasquib of 



that she cannot go to sea till repaired, which, as her master and a ship 
carpenter ioformed me, will cost fifteen pounds, which, she being tender 
work and very old, will preserve her but a year or two, when for 
twenty five pounds a new one may be built, which, with little charge, 
will last many yesrs. The master of that boat was silo we J by tiie 
late usurped govemment a corporal's pay, and out of a full company 
that lay constantly in garrison, five men were ordered to attend that 
service, which, out of twenty eight men, being the present garrison, 
cannot be admitted safely, since they are oft kept out by contrary winds 
six or eight weeks at a time, unless your grace will be pleased to allow 
us so many men to that purpose or increase the garrison. 

'' In the fort of Bofiin there are three and twenty pieces of ordnance, 
half the which want carriages, whereof twelve are iron minionv, five iron 
falcons, four iron sakers, one iron twelve-pounder, and one demi- 
culverin, whereof the four last are only useful as to the defence of the 
harbour. Thei'efore [I] do with all humbleness ofier it to your race, 
having discoursed with your gunner there, a man of known judgment, 
that two long brass sakers, or two of the longest sort of demi-culverins 
are absolutely necessary for the justification of that important harbour, 
the fort commanding it having cost fifteen hundred pounds [in] the 
buildinc, and do humbly offer it, if your grace thinke fit^ that from the 
town of Gal way, these garrisons may be supplied and the said town will 
be left sufficiently stored with artillary. 

*^ There is also an absolute necessity of a small vessel of twenty or 
thirty tons, to fetch provisions where it may be cheapest had, which is 
sometimes in the year no nearer then Gtilway, Sligo or Derry, the 
nearest of which places are twenty leagues from Boffin, as also the 
reasonableness of a correspondency between both islands and Ghdway, if 
occasion require, which, upon so violent a coast, can be but rarely had 
without a very good sea boat, which was the reason the frigate that 
now lies in Boffin was built, which, if repaired, would very well supply 
that service, she being near five and twenty tons, and is said to have 
been a good sailer. The boat hath lain aground two years, and, as I 
am informed from the gunner at Boffin, who is also a very good ship 
carpenter and the man that built her, fourscore and ten pounds will 
repair her and not under, she wanting sails, anchors and cables, and all 
manner of riggings, besides her hull being much out of order by being 
so long aground, which charge, as captain Barkely and other seamen 
tell me, will be easier to your grace than the very sending another 
vessell from this port to so remote a one. 

*^ I shall only presume to mention it to your grace, that without such 
boats your gamsons can scarce subsist in these it*]ands, so without some 
small encouragement to their masters, and some more men allowed to 
your garrisons, we shall not be able with the few we have to put them 
to sea when repaired, and hope your grace will so order it, there having 
never been, till alderman Deey's time, less than one full compauy in each 

^< We have in both garrisons but eight barrels of powder and much 
of that decayed, we also want a proportion of sreat shot suitable to the 
guns we desired from your grace, as also trucks, ladles, rammer heads 
and spunges, proportionable to the ladles, a hundred weight of sheet lead 
for aprons, six crows of iron, one huudi-edweighi of two-inch rope for 
fackles to haul the guns, one dozen of priming irons and two hundred 
shot suitable to the guns we have, which, if your grace sothink fit, 
may bee supplied from Limerick or Galway, and for one hundred and 
fifty pounds both islands may be so provided with boats, and the forts so 


repaired], that your grace need not be at anj further charge for some 
years with them, all which is humbly submitted to your grace's con- 
sideration by your grace's most faithfuU humblo and obedient servant, 
Nicholas Baylt." 

** May it please your grace. — We have considered the whole proposal 
of cfiptaine Nicholas Bayly for supplying his majesty's garrisons in the 
isles of Arran and Boffin with the several necessaries therein men- 
tiened, and we are humbly of opinion that the keeping and securing of 
these garrisons (especially Bo£Bj:i) is of much importance to bis majestie's 
service, and the safety of that part of this kingdom, and that the sum 
desired for doing the several particulars therein expressed is very 
reasonable and cannot be well performed for less, therefore we humbly 
offer to your grace that order may bee given for rem )ving from the 
strand near Gralway to Boffin two such guns as are desired for the 
security of that harbour, and that the sum of one hundred and fifty 
pounds may be paid unto captain Bayly for the building of anew boat ot 
fourteen tons for the use of the garrison in Arran, the repair and com- 
plete fitting of the vessel or frigott now at Boffin, the mending of the 
roofs and other necessary i*epairs in both the forts, and the providing 
carriages for the guns and furnishing all the other necessaries mentioned 
in the said proposals, all of which the said captain Bayly is to undertake 
the perrormance of this next spring. 

<< We also humbly acquaint your grace that wee find that lieutenant 
John Sandes, lieutenant to captain Robert Deey's company, lately 
garrisoned in the said islands, had your grace's warrant, dated the 29th 
of August 1662, to receive sixty four pounds out of the treasury, 30/. 
whereof was for building a new and repairing an old boat, and the 
remainder for repairing the houses in and adjoining to the forts in the 
said islands, but whether the same hath been applyed to those uses, we 
do not find ; all which is Itumbly submitted to your grace's considera- 
tion. — DuNGANNON, R. CooKE, Hknky Tichbornb, Fra^tcis Haviltok,

Feb. 26. — '^Upon consideration of the foregoing report of the com- 
mittee of the council for the affairs of the army, made in pursuance of a 
verbal order from us upon the within proposals of captain Nicholas 
Bayly, concerning his majesty's forts and garrisons in the isles of 
Arran and Boffin, we hereby pray and require our very good lord, 
Arthur, earl of Anglesey, his majesty's vice treasurer and treasurer at 
wars in this kingdom (out of any niioney belonging to his majesty, that

said captain Nicholas Bayly, the 8um of one hundred and fifty pounds,

the garrison aforesaid, in the said report mentioned, and in the manner 
herein offered, of which the said captain Bayly is to render a particular 
account. And for the said vice treasurer's so doeing, this, together with 
the acquittance of the said captain Nicholas Bayly, confessing the 
receipt thereof, shall be as well unto his lordship as to the commis-
