Treasury warrant to the six Auditors of the Exchequer Court [that of Wales being excepted in the Act] and the Clerk of the Pipe, to make out particulars of all rents and tenths above the value of 40s. per an. by such words as will be sufficient to pass them to the Trustees to be nominated [for the sale of fee farm rents] before the end of this Easter term, including such rents of lands as were parcels of manors yet in charge and are now granted in fee farm: and of those that are in lease and enjoyed by Coldstreamers or others of that nature, certifying the interests and claims of those persons: and of such as were in jointure to the late Queen Mother: and of such as are in jointure to the Queen that now is: and of such rents as stand in charge as farm rents which the Auditor or Clerk of the Pipe think to be fee farms, though the grants be not enrolled before them; certifying the same upon the particulars: and also within a fortnight after the end of the next term to make out particulars of all other rents in charge before them, certifying unto the Treasury Lords in the meantime what rents resolute and other perpetual payments are charged upon each county, to the end such of the said rents may be set apart for the payment thereof as shall be meet. (The rents of the Honor of Windsor are not to be [set] out).

Prefixing:—Report to the Treasury from Sir C. Harbord, Sir R. Long, and Mr. Ri. Sherwyn, dated 1670, April 23. We have conferred with the Auditors of the Exchequer about the speedy making out of particulars for sale of the fee farm rents and other rents in charge before them, and it is humbly proposed:—
(1) That the rents lately passed to make up a value of 10,000l. per an. for security of moneys [lent on the security of the Crown lands] may be surrendered and regranted under the same words as now they are, whereby they will be made more saleable and valuable for His Majesty's benefit.
(2) That particulars may be made out of such other rents and Tenths as are paid to the Receivers above the value of 40s. per an. by such words as will be sufficient to pass them to the Trustees before the end of this Easter term: and will contain above half the rents intended to be sold.
(3) And the residue of them may be prepared and made out for another book within a fortnight after the next term, before which time the Treasury Lords may be certainly informed what rents are fit to be reserved and set apart for the payment of rents resolute and other perpetual payments charged upon each county.
(4) If the purchasers shall desire to have all the lands whereon the said rents are charged mentioned in their conveyances they may have new particulars made out for that purpose, whereby the Trustees may pass the same accordingly.
(5) There being divers rents standing in charge before the said Auditors as farm rents upon demiseable lands which they believe are passed in fee farm, but the grants not enrolled, the Auditors pray your Lordships' directions how they shall be certified upon the particulars; but we think there are not many such cases, and when any such shall appear your Lordships will advise what directions to give therein.
(6) And there being divers fee farm rents reserved for lands, parcels of manors (yet in charge), granted in fee farm, the Auditors pray your Lordships' directions whether they shall make out particulars of those rents, the manors being excepted in the Act. But we conceive that those fee farm rents, being for ever severed from manors, they may be sold by the Act, and therefore particulars are to be made out of all such as well as of any others.
(7) And the Auditors pray your Lordships' directions touching the fee farm rents granted to Coldstreamers (some during His Majesty's pleasure and others until His Majesty gives them other satisfaction), whether the particulars of those rents shall be made out, and they pray your Lordships' directions touching the fee farm rents in the late Queen Mother's jointure, and whether such rents as are granted to particular persons under the Great Seal of England for 21 years or more shall be sold in reversion of the present terms and particulars made out for that purpose.
