[16 February, 1647/8.]
Monthly rate of £20,000 on counties and places following, for relief of Ireland.; How to be paid in.
Whereas it hath pleased God of late so to bless and prosper the
Forces of this Kingdom in the Kingdom of Ireland, and to give them
such Success against the inhumane and bloody Irish, as that those
Rebels are reduced to very great straights, and our Affairs put into
such a condition, as gives very great hopes to put that War to a
happy and speedy period (if there be now an effectual and vigorous
prosecution of the Advantages we have) with seasonable Supplies, the
want whereof hath hitherto hindred the compleating of that work,
notwithstanding that great sums have been at several times raised
and spent for that service: The Lords and Commons in Parliament
assembled, taking these things into their consideration, and also
how much the honor and interest of this Kingdom is concerned,
in the reducing of Ireland to the obedience of the Crown of England.
and of how absolute and indispensible necessity it is for the Peace
and Tranquillity of this Kingdom, that this relation should be
compleat; And considering also in how great want, both of
food and clothing these Forces are, And that after so much good
service, and such great Success and Victory against the Rebels,
themselves are in danger to be lost by Famine and Nakedness,
and this Kingdom to lose the fruit of all their service and success,
if there be not speedy care taken to provide against these Necessities:
Therefore although the said Lords and Commons are very sensible
of the great burthens that have been and still are upon this Kingdom in other Taxes and Payments, which the exigency of Affairs
by the late Troubles have necessitated to be laid and levied; And
that by a late Ordinance there hath been Sixty thousand pounds
per mensem charged upon the Kingdom for the service of England
and Ireland, of which notwithstanding by reason of the said exigencies and necessities, no part can possibly be spared for the Kingdom
of Ireland, They have thought fit to order and Ordain, and be it
Ordained by the said Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament,
and by the authority of the same, That for the intents and purposes
aforesaid, the Sum of Twenty thousand pounds a moneth shall be
charged, rated, taxed and levied upon all and every the several
Counties, Cities, Towns, Liberties, places and persons hereafter
