Treaty of peace or concord between Lord Leonard Grey, Viscount Grane, the King's Deputy, and Felom Ruffus O'Neyle, otherwise Felom O'Neyle, brother of Nelan Magnus O'Neyle; 1 May, 28 Hen. VIII. O'Neyle has taken oath that he will be a faithful liege subject of the King, and serve the King and his Deputy with all his power, whenever need shall be, against any rebels or enemies dwelling within a day's journey from him, as often as he shall be called upon. He shall rise up in every great voyage, commonly called "hostinges." He will not harbour or support any rebel, traitor, or felon of the King. With respect to all damages, prejudices, and injuries perpetrated or to be perpetrated against the King's subjects, by him or any of his adherents or followers, he will stand to the arbitrament of Lord Walter Bellewe, Lord Roche, and Sir John Plunket; Nelan, son of John, otherwise Nele MacShane; and Donatus MacKaruell. He shall place in the hands of the Lord Deputy, as hostage, Arthur O'Neyle, his natural son. If the said arbitrators shall not agree, he will stand to the judgment of the Lord Deputy. If he fail to fulfil the judgment of the Lord Deputy and the said arbitrators, he shall pay to the Lord Deputy for every such default, 50 good martes.--Dublin, 4 [May], [Month omitted in MS.] 28 Henry VIII.
