The king to [all his bailiffs and faithful men to whom the present letters shall come], greetings. Know that whereas Hugh Holyns of the county of Staffordshire, in the time of our most beloved lord and father, deceased, stood convicted of diverse transgressions, misprisons, rebellions, insurrections, contempts and disobediences by reason of diverse defaults imputed to him before our aforesaid father at the quindene of Trinity in the eleventh year of his reign [1 June 1410] by force of a certain act and ordinance in the parliament held at Westminster on the twentieth day of January in the said eleventh year, and of which he still stands convicted, as more fully in the record of our bench [court of King’s Bench], as is said, by pretext of which the aforesaid Hugh did not have or enjoy benefit of our last general pardon, we, by our special grace and in consideration of the good and acceptable service that he rendered to us both at Harfleur and at Agincourt, have pardoned to the same Hugh, or whatever name he goes by, the suit of our peace which pertains to us against him for all manner of reasons aforesaid, and also for all manner of treasons, insurrections, rebellions, felonies, conspiracies, trespasses, offences, impeachments, misprisons, errors committed through ignorance, contempts, deceptions and forfeitures perpetrated by him before this time, of which he has been indicted, accused or appealed, and also for which he has been outlawed, if such has been promulgated against him for these reasons, and we grant him our firm peace for this, on condition, however, that he stands to right in our court if anyone shall wish to speak against him concerning the foregoing, or concerning any individual foregoing matter. Furthermore, we have pardoned to the same Hugh of our further grace the execution of judgements rendered or to be rendered against him in such matters, together with each fine or ransom and payment of money which might fall to us by reason of the foregoing. In [testimony] of which thing [we have set our seal to the foregoing]. Witness the king at Salisbury on the fourth day of June.
By writ of privy seal.
