Rectory of Dorking to Trevor and Bryan.
THE Earl of Oxford brought in the Bill, intituled,
An Act of Confirmation of a Bargain and Sale of
the Rectory of Dorking, and certain Lands in Surrey,
heretofore made by the Right Honourable Charles Earl
of Nottingham, and William late Lord Howard of
Effingham, deceased, unto Thomas Trevor and William
Biron, and their Heirs; which Bill the Committees
thought not fit to be passed, and so it was let to sleep.
The Archbishop of Canterburie reported the Conference Yesterday between the Two Sub-Committees
of both Houses, to this Effect: videlicet,
1. They shewed their constant Resolution to maintain the Love and good Correspondency between both
2. Their Resolution not to invade the Privileges
of this House, that have dealt so nobly with them.
3. That, out of their Zeal, they sentenced Floud;
but they leave him to the Lords, with an Intimation
of their Hope, that this House will censure him also.
They propounded a Protestation to be entered with
them, for a Mean to accommodate the Business between
That the Lords Sub-Committees, returning into this
House, considered of the Proposition, and conceived a
Form of a Protestation in Writing, which was read unto
the Sub-Committee of the Commons; but it was
Agreed, That the said Protestation shall not bind this
House, until the House have first agreed upon it.
His Lordship further shewed, That they delivered
the Commons no Copy of that Protestation.
The Protestation was read Twice, and no Exceptions
taken unto it. It followeth, in bæc verba: videlicet,
A Protestation concerning the Commons Judicature.
"A Protestation to be entered, by Consent of the
House of Commons, to this Purpose: That the Proceedings lately passed in that House against Edward
Floud be not, at any Time hereafter, drawn or used
as a Precedent, to the enlarging or diminishing of
the lawful Rights or Privileges of either House;
but that the Rights or Privileges of both Houses
shall remain in the self-same State and Plight as before."
Sir Henry Yelverton.
The Lords being put in Mind, that, by a former
Agreement, they are to proceed this Morning in the
Business of Sir Henrie Yelverton; after long Consultation, a double Question was propounded: videlicet,
1. Whether the Words, or any of them, spoken by
Sir Henrie Yelverton, in this House, do much touch
the King's Honour, as we yet conceive?
2. Whether the Words, or any of them, spoken by
Sir Henrie Yelverton, in this House, may touch the
King's Honour, as we yet conceive?
Memorandum, Before the Question was put, the
House was moved to determine, That they are not
concluded by assenting unto either of the Two Questions; but that (fn. *) they may alter their Opinions upon
the Hearing of Sir Henry Yelverton; which was Agreed
It was also Agreed, To hear Sir Henrie Yelverton
speak, how he will explain himself, before he be censured.
It was likewise Agreed, That the first Question
only, and not the second, should be put; which being
put, it was Agreed unto.

quarum una intitulatur, An Act concerning Monopolies, and Dispensation with Penal Laws, and the Forfeitures thereof.
Ordinances in Wales.
Altera autem, An Act of a Repeal of one Branch
of a Statute, made in the Session of Parliament holden
by Prorogation at Westm. the Two and Twentieth
Day of January, in the Four and Thirtieth Year of
the Reign of Henry the Eighth, intituled, An Act for
certain Ordinances in the King's Majesty's Dominion and
Principality of Wales.
Sir Henry Yelvarton to be brought before the Lords.
It is Ordered, That Sir Henry Yelverton be brought
into the Court, to answer for himself, on Monday next,
by Nine of the Clock in the Morning; and that an
Order be made, and directed to the Lieutenant of
The Tower, to bring Sir Henrie Yelverton, at the Time
appointed, before their Lordships.
King's Counsel to collect the Charge against him.
The King's Counsel are to make a Collection of the
Words spoken by Sir Henry Yelverton in this House,
and to confer with the Judges about them, and to
deliver their Opinion unto the House, on Monday
Morning next, before Sir Henrie Yelverton be heard;
and the King's Counsel are to inforce the Words against
The Lord Steward's Privilege. Nonne arrested.
The Lord Steward complained, That Thomas Nonne
(a Servant of his) is arrested, and imprisoned in The
King's Bench, contrary to the Privileges of Parliament;
whereupon it was Ordered, That a Writ of Habeas
corpus cum causa be awarded, and directed unto the
Marshal of The Marshalsea, commanding him to bring
the said Thomas Nonne before their Lordships, on Monday next, at Nine in the Morning.
Sir John Kennedy's Cabinet.
The Lord Steward also shewed, That Sir John Kennedy
is an humble Suitor unto the House, that a rich Cabinet, which he gave unto the late Lord Chancellor,
Viscount St. Alban, pendente lite between him and Peter
Vanlore, may be restored unto him; for that the said
late Lord Chancellor hath declared, that he never received the said Cabinet, and that it is yet to be restored
where their Lordships shall think meet.
Whereupon it is Ordered, That the said Cabinet be
forthwith brought to the Clerk of the Parliament;
and to be kept by him until the House shall take such
further Order for the same as shall be thought fit.
The Clerk delivered an Order thereupon unto the
Writ of Error, Manner of bringing it in.
According to the Order of the Eighth of this May,
the Earl of Huntingdon brought in a Precedent, touching the Delivery of the Record here by the Lord Chief
Justice, upon a Writ of Error to reverse a Judgment
in the King's Bench; the Lord Chief Justice supplying the Place of the Lord Chancellor: videlicet,
In the Two and Twentieth Year of Edward the
Third, William Thorpe, then Chief Justice, was Speaker
in the Upper House, as appeareth clearly in the Parliament Roll of that Year; and, by a Book Case of one
Shadlowe, who brought a Writ of Error in Parliament,
it appeareth, that the same William Thorpe, Chief
Justice, and then Speaker in the Upper House, did
bring into the Parliament the Record of the Judgement,
and the Writ was directed unto him.
Whereupon it was Ordered, That the Lord Chief
Justice shall, on Monday next, bring in the Record
mentioned in the Writ of Error directed unto him.
Lord Chancellor's Privilege Naunton's Audit.
It appearing unto the House, That the Writ of Habeas
corpus cum causa, awarded by this Court die instentis
Maii, and directed to the Sheriff of Nott. commanding him to bring the Body of John Naunton (the
Lord Cromwell's Man) before their Lordships on the
Day of this May, was not executed: It is this
Day Ordered, That another Writ of Hebeas corpus
cum causa be made, and directed to the said Sheriff,
for the bringing of the said John Naunton before their
Lordships, on the One and Thirtieth Day of this May.
Lord Mordaunt's Privilege.
Edward Shereborne, being arrested by William Compton,
claimed the Privilege of Parliament, as Servant to
the Lord Mordant, a Member of this House; and the
and the said Compton being brought to the Bar, the said
Compton made it known unto their Lordships, that he
arrested the said Shereborne for Money which he lent
to the late Lord Chancellor, upon Shereborne's Bond;
and that he knew not that Shereborne was privileged,
as Servant to any Member of this House; and the
said Shereborne claimed his Privilege also, as being
appointed by the Lord Viscount St. Alban, late Lord
Chancellor, to be Collector of the Lords Subsidies.
It is Ordered, That, forasmuch as the House doth
know the said Shereborne to be Servant to the Lord
Viscount St. Alban (who is not a Member of the
House), that, therefore, he shall not have the Privilege
of the Parliament; and, for the other, the House takes
no Notice of any Privilege belonging to the Collector
of the Lords Subsidies: But it is further Ordered,
That the Commissioners for the Seal do humbly move
His Majesty to discharge Shereborne of the Collectorship
of the Lords Subsidies. And William Compton was
permitted to take his Remedy, by Course of Law,
against Shereborne, for the said Debt, and discharged
of any Contempt supposed to be committed by him.
