Royal warrant to the Lords Justices of Ireland for a grant as follows to Arthur Podmore and Joshuah Dorson (Dawson). By petition to the King they set forth that they have served in the office of First Secretary to the Chief Governor of Ireland from their first appointment in 1690 before the late rebellion was suppressed and are still employed under the present Government there and have behaved diligently and laboriously therein without any allowance or salary from the Government, though much the greater part of their time and pains has been taken up in the despatch of public affairs relating to the Army and the Militia without any fee or benefit: therefore they pray a grant of the Crown's three-fourths of a mortgage to one Arthur Gallway of 1,500l. forfeited to the Crown upon the lands of Clandonnell, Currehine [Curraheen], Kilbrack, Nether-Ballyclohy, Ballyfoyne [Ballynafina], Knockonfally, Half Whitestown, Glanconse [Glen-house] and Lahardan in Upper Third Barony, co. Waterford: one fourth part of the benefit whereof is allowed to the discoverer of said mortgage. Their petition was referred to you, and by you was referred to Sir Richard Leving, kt., Solicitor General, Ireland, from whose report thereon appears that the premises were found by inquisition taken at Blackfryars, co. Waterford, 1694, Aug. 9, before the escheator of the Province of Munster, which found that Walter Gallway was seized on the premises 1673, Aug. 23, and did by deed of 1684–5, Jan. 16, mortgage same for 1,500l. to Richard, late Earl of Tyrone, but the said Earl never paid the said 1,500l., but by deed dated 1684–5, Jan. 18, conveyed the premises to Arthur Gallway, brother of said Walter, so that the mortgage to Arthur appears to be only in trust for Walter, though the trust is not mentioned in the inquisition: but whether the said mortgage money is the property of said Walter or Arthur, they are both outlawed for high treason and the same is absolutely forfeited to the Crown. But the mortgage was concealed until a discovery thereof was made by Sir John Topham to the Commissioners for inspection into Forfeitures in Ireland, whereby Topham is entitled to a fourth as a reward for discovery. Out Letters (Ireland) VI, pp. 480–4.
And further the Lords Justices in their report of Jan. 31 last have confirmed the petitioners' account of their services etc. as above.
