The Question being put, "Whether this Bill shall pass?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

The Earl of Carlile acquainted this House, "That the Earl of Suffolk and himself have moved His Majesty, for to give this House Leave to hear James Percy, concerning his Claim which he lays to the Title of the Earldom of Northumberland and Lord Percy, &c. And His Majesty hath given Leave to this House to hear and determine the same accordingly."

His Petitions dismissed:

Upon reading the Petitions of James Percy this Day, setting forth his Claim to the Title of Earldom of Northumberland, and Barony of Cockermouth, Percy, Lucy, Poynings, Fitzpaine, and Brian Latimer, and praying that he may be heard, at the Bar, by his Counsel, to make out his said Claim (which His Majesty had given Leave to this House to hear and determine); the said James Percy and his Counsel appearing at the Bar, and also Counsel on the Behalf of Elizabeth the Elder Countess Dowager of Northumberland, who chargeth the said James Percy to be an Impostor, in pretending to the said Titles of Honour; this House having fully heard the Counsel of the said Countess Dowager, in Opposition to the said Claim of the said James Percy, who, by his Counsel, refused to proceed to make out his said Claim, but prayeth longer Time for that Purpose; upon which their Lordships offering, that if the said James Percy, by his Counsel, would make appear any Probability towards his said Claim, he should have further Time allowed him; which he refused to do, notwithstanding he hath had a Month's Time given him by the Lords Committees for Privileges, at his own Desire, to prepare for his Defence which he had placed wholly in making out his said Claim, and hath caused above Forty Witnesses to be sworn at the Bar of this House, in order thereunto:

After due Consideration had of the Premises, it is Resolved, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That both the Petitions of the said James Percy, for his Claim to the Title of Earl of Northumberland, &c. be, and are hereby, dismissed this House.

To be proceeded against as an Impostor.
