Indenture, 16 August 33 Henry VIII.--Great dissension having arisen between Bernard Occhonor, chief of his nation, and Charles O'Chonor, gentleman, his brother, they appeared before the Lord Deputy and Council, and have covenanted that, in all controversies between them or their kinsmen, servants, or followers, they will stand to the arbitration of Sir William Bermingiam, Baron of Carbry; David Sutton, of Connall, in the county of Kildare, gentleman; James FitzGeralde, of Osbardeston, in the said county, gentleman, and Richard McKenegan, arbitrator[s] of the said Lord O'Chonour; and if they should disagree in anything, the matter shall stand to the final judgment and determination of the Lord Deputy, and the said four. If either of them should compass and procure the death of the other, the criminal shall lose for ever all his goods, chattels, and dominions, one moiety of all of which shall go to the King, and the other moiety to the heirs of the person slain.
