Indenture, 7th August 31 Henry VIII., between the King and Gyllernowe O'Maghir, captain of his nation. The King accepts O'Magher as his faithful subject, and O'Maghyr binds himself, his heirs and successors, captains of the said country, to pay to the King 12d. lawful money of Ireland annually for every carucate of land within his country and dominion of Ynykyryne. Whenever a general hosting is made, he will lead to the Deputy 4 horsemen and 12 kerne (turbarii), well armed according to the usage of the country, with victuals for 40 days, at his own costs and charges. When the Deputy comes near the borders of the said country, O'Magher will assist him with his whole power for three days. He and his successors will make a sufficient and open road through their country for the more easy passage of the King's wagons (currium) and other warlike instruments, and of the King's men, as often as they shall be required to do so by the Deputy.
