last, this Committee, having considered of several Orders
and Ordinances of Parliament, made in the Behalf of
divers reduced Officers, that served the Parliament in
Yorkshire, under the Command of the late Ferdinando
Lord Fairfax, do find, that, by Ordinance of Parliament,
bearing Date 10 Octobris 1648, the Sum of Twenty-three
thousand Five hundred Threescore and Six Pounds One
Shilling and One Peny Half-peny, by Certificate of the
Sub-Committee, for taking the Accounts of the County of
York, and Examination thereof, by the Committee of the
Northern Association, appearing due to the said reduced
Officers, was charged upon all and every the Securities

the 24th of December 1647; and appointed to be paid

Laidman, and Richard Sikes, or any Three of them, or
their Assigns; and to be divided and proportioned by the
said Adam Eyre, &c. amongst the Officers contained in

1649, the Twenty-three thousand Five hundred Threescore and Six Pounds One Shilling a Peny Half-peny, was
to be transferred, and settled upon the same Securities,
that the rest of the Army were then to be.
But, by Act of Parliament for the Sale of the late
King's Lands, passed 17 Julii 1649, all Debentures, to be
allowed and received in Purchase of the said Lands, are
so limited and restrained as to Times of Service, that the
said Sum, due to the said reduced Officers (they not being
in Service in December or January 1647, or such other
Times as by that Act is required), cannot be accepted in
Purchase, or satisfied out of the said Lands.
Yet it further appears, that an Act, for Remedy therein, was by Order of Parliament, of 4 Decembris 1649,
appointed to be read in Parliament, on Tuesday then next
January 20th, 1650, Adam Eyre, George Shirt, and
Richard Sykes, did make a Division of the said Sum of

Pounds One Shilling and Peny Half-peny, amongst the
