At the Restoration in 1660 the inhabitants employed William Midwinter, then deputy steward of the soke of Kirton, whereto the premises belong, to obtain a new lease, but Midwinter obtained a grant in his own name for 31 years from 1662, Lady day, at the old rent of 10s. and 30s. increase for the passage and 14d. old rent and 50s. increase for the land.

Ibid, pp. 213–15.
Prefixing: report dated 1689, Aug. 24, from William Harbord, late Surveyor General of Crown lands, on said Andrews' petition. The said manor with the demesnes, warren and park were all granted 1660, Aug. 9, to Robert Phillips, esq., one of the Gentlemen of the Bedchamber, for 30 years at 79l. 17s. 11d. per an. rent without fine. This lease was assigned to petitioner in June, 1665. On 9 Oct., 1670, the demesnes, warren and park were granted to Henry North for 11 years in reversion of Phillips' lease at rents of 31l. 10s. 0d. and 4l. and 10l. as above. Petitioner has purchased North's interest. I reported on his present petition in Jan., 1684–5, and valued a 15 years' extension of lease at 1,000l. fine, being two years' purchase on the Parliamentary survey valuation of 500l. per an. above the reserve rents, but petitioner would not proceed, as he set the valuation at only 415l. per an., lands in those parts being much fallen in value and the poor so numerous that there is charged on the premises towards their relief and the support of the church above 40l. per an.; which with 45l. 10s. 0d. rents to the King and 20l. in necessary incidents reduced the valuation to 310l. per an. The wood grounds called Deverlongwood and Knowlewood belonging to the manor were let by Charles I, 1627, May 5, at 55s. and 45s. per an. to Jasper Bannister for 99 years terminable on three lives for the use of the tenants and inhabitants. The three lives are dead and petitioner claims same as part of the manor under Mr. Phillips's lease, “but 'tis alleged the said rents have not been paid by the tenants to the petitioner, nor any other profit made thereof by him, the same having been destroyed before the year 1660, but if fenced in and preserved might be of some future benefit to the Crowne.”
As to the residue of the manor (rents of assize, copyholders' fines, perquisites, royalties etc.), the same were valued in the Parliamentary Survey in 1650 at 105l. per an. above the 34l. 6s. 11d. reserved rent. I think 500l. may be a reasonable fine. “But this manor being parcel of the Duchy of Cornwall is restrained by the several Acts of Parliament passed since the year 1660 from being granted and therefore I am not to advise the same.” But he may have his term made up to 31 years herein. “Such a lease may be probably good during his Majesty's life and until there be a Duke of Cornwall.”
Followed by: statement of opinion by Sir Geo. Treby [Attorney General], dated 1691, Oct. 20: “I conceive such a lease may be made by the King and the same will be good against his Majesty, but will be defeasible by the Duke of Cornwall when there shall happen to be one.”
July 31. Treasury warrant to the Commissioners of Excise and Hearthmoney Arrears to make compositions where they think necessary in the Hearthmoney accounts and further to allow 100l. each to the present Treasurer and Accountant thereof and 80l. to the Auditor for their pains in regard to said accounts: all by reason that upon the Treasury Lords requiring an account of the arrears of Hearthmoney and of the probability of getting same in, the said Commissioners do find still outstanding 3,253l. 11s. 7d. of good debts, 3,024s. 4s. 4d. of sperate debts and 9,175l. 15s. 3d. of desperate debts (as in a list appended to their presentment [missing] of the 11th inst. on this subject) besides 591l. 4s. 11½d. deposited in Sir John Foche's hands by Mr. Tempest and 235l. 8s. 6d. in Mr. Stanlake's hands towards defraying law charges and 88l. 0s.d. in Mr. Shenton's hands deposited by a surety pending a law suit: as to all which said Commissioners desire a power to make compositions and that allowances for trouble be granted as above, believing that it will be possible that all the cash accounts hitherto relating to the Hearthmoney (which are the only accounts that can be or are necessary to be audited) can be stated in one quarter of a year. Warrants not Relating to Money XIV, p. 219.
