Date. Nature and Substance of the Entry. Reference.
June 11. Same to the Receipt for tallies of pro on the Hereditary and Temporary Excise for 300l. to Whitfeild Hayter in repayment of so much by him lent on credit thereof the 2nd inst. Money Book XII, p. 77.
Report to the Treasury Lords [from Mr. Povey] on Col. Dungan's petition ut supra, p. 206. As to the quit rents of Staten Island, no rent roll of their Majesties' quit rents in New York has yet been transmitted from thence, so no true estimate can be made: but by a list of patents granted in New York before 1681 it appears that there had been granted to divers persons before that time about 153 lots or shares of land in Staten Island with the reservation of one bushel of wheat yearly for each lot containing about 80 acres of land, which at the rate of 3s. per bushel, being the usual price of wheat there, amounts to 22l. 8s. 0d. If the Queen think fit to gratify petitioner by a grant of the quit rents of all the lands upon Staten Island he is willing to allow after the rate of 12 years' purchase for same upon a true survey to be made thereof, the said purchase money to be deducted out of the 7,751l. 18s. 8d. claimed by petitioner as due to him on his account of receipts and disbursements for the public service in New York during his government there; which accounts are now before the Treasury Lords. Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) I, p. 402.
But whether her Majesty may pass such a grant of Staten Island, together with the several privileges to be enjoyed there and in Martins Vinyard as is desired by petitioner, your Lordships will be best informed by the Attorney General, who upon considering the commission granted by their Majesties to the Governor of New York, together with the grants which have been passed for lands in Staten Island and the charter of the Massachusetts Bay in New England, whereof Martin Vinyard is a part, will be able to advise how far the grant desired by petitioner will be consistent with the said grants and charter and with the powers of the Governor of New York under his commission for the government of that Province, which being the chief frontier and place of defence to all their Majesties' dominions in the northern parts of America against the French, has been very much weakened by the grants made of East and West Jersey and other tracts of land formerly belonging to it and may be further prejudiced by the erecting of new jurisdictions in any part thereof, which may thereby be exempted from the powers granted to the Governor of New York for the better government of their Majesties' subjects and for the uniting their strength on all occasions against the French in those parts.

Warrants not Relating to Money XIV, pp. 185–6
Prefixing: report by S. Travers, Surveyor General of Crown Lands, on Cotton's petition for same. The manors of Denbigh and Bromfield and Yale are part of the Principality of Wales and in the hands of the Crown. All coal and lead mines in the lordship of Denbigh were granted in 1667, Sept. 25, to Sir Cyril Wych for 31 years. Nothing has been paid to the Crown on the royalty of a tenth part, and the rent of 20s. per an. thereon is in arrear for 20 years and no profit made of the said grant apparently. All coal mines in the manor of Exclusiam and lordship of Bromfield and Yale were granted to Sir Thomas Grosvenor and the rent of 20s. per an. thereon is duly paid, but the period of the term appears not. According to the Auditor's books Exclusiam is part of the said lordship.

Ibid, pp 186–7.
We find that three or four years ago divers pressing instances were made to the Customs Commissioners by the merchants of Harwich and others for settling a Custom House and collection there and the Members of Parliament for that Corporation exhibited a memorial with reasons for such establishment. The Members who served for Ipswich were heard in opposition to it by the Customs Commissioners and the Treasury Lords, and on the 24th April last after full consideration being fully satisfied as to the conveniency and better security of the Customs thereby, we issued a commission, supra, p. 171, for establishing such a Custom House and collection at Harwich, but so as that a Custom House is still to remain at Ipswich for entering and despatch of all goods of or for the merchants and inhabitants thereof and for despatch of the coasting trade inwards and outwards. The commission is executed and the return is filed and the Customs Commissioners have ordered the officers at both said places to dispose themselves accordingly.

The Treasury Lords to the Lord Lieutenant, Ireland, to report on the enclosed petition [missing] of Richard Uniacke, praying a lease of some forfeited lands in Ireland in lieu of those which were set to him in Nov. last for three years at 40l. per an.; he alleging that he is deprived of all benefit therefrom by reason of a liberty given to the Protestants to extend the forfeited lands for debts really due to them from the forfeiting proprietors. Out Letters (Ireland) VI, p. 307.
