Hath lately purchased the territory of Uppertrough, together with the Ballybetaghs of Ballilegathin, ... and several other 'tates' [the term is a measure of land, viz 16 acres; and appears to be peculiar to certain territories in Ireland, the patrimonies respectively of McMahon (Monaghan) and of Maguire (Fermanagh). Sixteen tates "= one ballybetagh". See Shirley: History of Monaghan [text illegible in margin] and p.89 (1877)], parcels of the said ballybetaghs, ... and several yearly rents ... all in the county of Monaghan ... and formerly granted ... by ... King James to Sir Thomas Ridgway, after Earl of Londonderry. ...

Prays that his Majesty will accept a surrender of the same, and make a regrant to petitioner.
