Assurance of Wentworth's Lands for certain Uses.
vice lecta est Billa, An Act for the enabling of the Assurance of certain Lands, conveyed for
the Portions of Three of the Daughters of John Wentworth, Esquire, and for the Confirmation of certain
other Estates for Life in other Lands, and to enable
Sir John Wentworth, Knight, to sell certain Lands for
the Payment of his Debts.
Tenures and Wardships.
The Lord Chancellor did put the Lords in Mind,
That, before Easter, they received a Message from the
Lower House, touching Tenures, and the Dependants
thereon; he also remembered the Effect of the same
Message; and that it is likely, their Lordships being
engaged by Promise to return an Answer, the Lower
House will expect the same in convenient Time, whereof
he moved their Lordships to consider.
The Lord Treasurer, referring what had passed between this House and the Lower, and how proceeded
in, to the Memory of the Lords, to whom (as he
affirmed) the same was as well known as to himself, rehearsed, That, in the Business, there was formerly a Resolution, not to proceed without the King's Allowance,
the Matter tending to take from His Majesty a great
Prerogative. His Lordship shewed his Opinion to be,
That, before this House do confer with the Lower, or
among themselves dispute the Matter of their Offer
already made, or make to them any further Demand,
they should understand His Majesty's Pleasure, whether,
upon any Terms, He will be pleased to leave that
which the Lower House require; for that hitherto His
Majesty hath not signified His Pleasure in that Behalf,
otherwise than that, when He knoweth what will be
offered for that Matter, then will He deliver His Pleasure and Purpose therein; wherefore his Lordship
moved, That some Committees may be authorized to
attend the King, and to understand whether He shall be
pleased to like of this Frame of departing with Tenures, etc. as is desired; and, if such shall be His Pleasure, then what He will require for the same.
The Motion was generally allowed, and Committees
