Summary "When Henry II departed Ireland in 1172, he granted the ancient Irish kingdom of Meath to Hugh de Lacy I; an enormous tract of land which covered the modern counties of Meath, Westmeath, and parts of Longford and Offaly. The tithes of this land together with lands in Dublin were granted to his favoured house of Llanthony situated on his estates in the valley of Ewyas in Wales. The subsequent arrival in Ireland of the knights of Hugh de Lacy I and the settlement of many of his Irish lands is recorded in the charters contained in the Irish cartularies of Llanthony Prima and Secunda. The growth of the Llanthony estates in Ireland both in terms of landholding and the holding of ecclesiastical revenues in the form of tithes can be mapped from a reading of the Llanthony charters in chronological order. For the most part, the charters are concerned with the tithes of land and ecclesiastical benefices both in the lordship of Meath and outside, granted to them by Hugh de Lacy I, his family and knights, and with the subsequent documentation in relation to those grants. The lands were managed by proctors from their cells at Colpe and Duleek in County Meath; from a study of the early charters it has been possible to locate the lands in Ireland from which the Llanthony canons held the tithes and church benefices. A survey of the later charters reveals a complex prosopographical pattern of familial ties, interwoven with the tenacious patronage and advocacy of the landed gentry who identified with Llanthony down trough the centuries from the earliest settlement in the twelfth century until the Dissolution, in the sixteenth; a period of almost four hundred years."--BOOK JACKET.
