In an address (among other things relating to Ireland) the House of Commons desired a true account of the escheats and forfeited estates, both real and personal, and stores left by the late King James in Ireland. Please have such an account prepared.
Mar. 22. Royal warrant to the Lord Lieutenant, Ireland, approving and directing the allowance in account to the Paymasters of the Forces, Ireland, of all payments made or to be made by them for the Hospital at Dublin as follows, viz.: by reason there has not been for a considerable time past any clearing of the pay of the Forces (all payments on the Military List of Ireland having of late for the most part been made upon account) there is no present fund for answering the charge of the support and maintenance of the ancient, maimed and infirm officers and soldiers now or hereafter placed in the Hospital near Dublin and for defraying the necessary salaries and charges thereof, which depends upon the 6d. per £, part of the [12d. per £] deduction from military pay from 1691–2, Jan. 1: notwithstanding which the said Paymasters have continued to make payments for same under orders and warrants from the Lord Lieutenant, which however they consider does not sufficiently justify them. The sums so paid and to be paid are hereby not to exceed the total of said 6d. per £. Out Letters (Ireland) VI, pp. 272–3.
Same to same to make a deduction of only 6d. in the £ from June 24 next from the pay of the Garrisons and Land Forces in Ireland, notwithstanding the warrant comprehended in the present establishment of Ireland, which directed a deduction of 12d. per £ from same: all by reason that the King has “now directed that the Receiver General and Paymaster of our Forces in that kingdom shall from the 24th of June next have the fee of 6d. in the £ which was anciently taken by the Vice Treasurers or Treasurers at War and afterwards received by the Receivers General in that kingdom.” The moneys hereby ordered to be deducted are to be disposed of as the King shall direct by sign manual warrant. Ibid, p. 274.
Same to same for a great seal for the payment until until June 24 next and no longer of the allowances of 6,250l. per an. to Charles Fox and Lord Coningsby, Paymasters of the Forces, Ireland, out of the abovesaid deduction of 12d. per £, the said Fox and Coningsby having been appointed Paymasters by a great seal of 1690, June 5, and further by a great seal of 1690, July 30, appointed Receivers General and Paymasters General of all the revenue in Ireland, in order to avoid the inconveniences which would have arisen if the payments and receipts had been managed by different persons; and further by the royal warrant of 1690, Dec. 31, the King having appointed for them (out of the said deduction of 12d. per £) 2,000l. each for salary and 2,250l. for their several deputies, clerks or officers: and the King having since granted to said Lord Coningsby the offices of Vice Treasurer and Treasurer at War, Ireland, without prejudice to the offices above granted to said Fox and Coningsby and with the profits of his said office of Vice Treasurer save and except the fee of 6d. per £ on his payments for [civil] salaries, pensions etc.: and thereupon the said Fox and Coningsby having petitioned to be paid the said Vice Treasurer's said 6d. per £ deduction as in lieu of their abovesaid allowances of 6,250l. per an. After 1693, June 24, therefore, they are hereby to be paid the said whole fee or deduction of 6d. per £ out of such payments: but with a covenant on their part to exhibit an account thereof to the Lord Lieutenant and to answer to the Crown any surplus yield of said deduction over and above the said sum of 6,250l. per an. This present grant is not to prejudice any power or profit granted to Elnathan Lumm, gent., for receiving and paying the King's revenues in Ireland. Ibid, pp. 275, 277–80.
