of them being upon Plaints against him before the
said Sheriffs in Actions of Debt, and upon the Case
(fn. ||) of Trespass for the Debts and Damages, amounting
in the whole to above Thirteen Hundred Pounds;
the Seventeenth of the said Actions being brought
by an Informer, as well for the King as for himself,
for Two Hundred Pounds Debt, demanded upon
One of the Statutes made against Recusants, as we
are informed; and the Eighteenth Matter being a
Capias Utlagatum awarded against him out of the
Court of King's Bench, at the King's Suit, upon
Conviction there for Recusancy, by Outlawry, before the Time wherein the said Baynes doth pretend
himself to be retained a Servant to the Lord Morley:

Caroli Regis, before the Beginning of this Parliament, as appears by a Copy of that Indictment produced by Baynes's Counsel, and hereto annexed;

and sworn 15 Aprilis, 1643, whereby it is affirmed
that Baynes hath been a Servant to the Lord Morley
for Two Years, or thereabouts, before the making
