The Petition of Benjamyn Crokey was read, to this

That whereas an ancient Collegiate Free School was,
about Two Hundred Years since, founded by Katherine
Lady Berkeley, in Wotton, in the County of Gloucester,
and of Continuance till the Sixth Year of our King's
Reign, that the same was, by the indirect Practices of one
John Smyth, suppressed; who purchased the Fee Farm
of all the School Possessions (being Nine and Thirty
Tenements) for Five Pounds and Four Pence per Annum, the same being worth Four Hundred Pounds
That the Petitioner (to the impoverishing of his
Estate) hath formerly procured Four several Commissions, upon the Statute of Charitable Uses, for the
settling of the Possessions of the said School, all which
were crossed by the indirect Practices of the said John
Smyth, and of one John Hunt.
That the Petitioner hath exhibited a Bill in this
House, on the Behalf of the said School; and, upon a
Petition exhibited thereupon, it pleased this House to
grant their Lordships Order and Warrant for a Fifth
Commission, wherein this Petitioner was to be employed this last Vacation.

Harvey and Fisher, to arrest the
Petitioner, at the Suit of Harvey, on the 24th of June
last, of Purpose to prevent the executing of the said
Fifth Commission; the said Harvey refusing to accept
of any Satisfaction for his Debt, no not the Forfeiture.
And the Serjeant that made the Arrest, although the Petitioner shewed him the said Order of
the Lords, with the Commission, yet, with contemptuous Words against the Prerogative of the Parliament,
he beat the Petitioner, and haled him to Prison in
The King's Bench, where he hath ever since continued,
to the Hindrance of the said Commission, and his own
It is hereupon Ordered, That His Majesty's Writ

from this House for the said Commission and the executing thereof.
