Orders taken at this Sessions concerning the government of the House of Correction erected at Clerkenwell, as also for correction and punishment of offenders to be committed thither and for providing stocks of money and all other things necessary for the same:

First that whereas an order was made at the Quarter Sessions held on 13 January, 12 James I [A.D. 1614–15] (fn. 1) , that the capital messuage, stable, curtilage and other the premises then in the occupation of Henry Norwood or George Sherley, esquires, and also the tenement, great orchard and garden then or late in the tenure of James Thurleby, situate within the parish of Clerkenwell, should be bought in the names of Sir Thomas Lake, knight, Custos Rotulorum of the county, and divers Justices, to the use of the county, and that they should thereupon erect a House of Correction and employment in labour for rogues, vagabonds etc; Now forasmuch as the said Justices have caused to be built upon part of the said premises a House of Correction according to the said former order, and for that upon examination of the Treasurers' accounts who disbursed the sums of money collected for buying the land and building the House, it appears that there is more money disbursed than can be got in or received, so that they are become indebted unto divers poor artizans and other workmen for the materials and labour done and bestowed in the building of the same House to the value of one hundred marks and more; Besides that many other things necessary, appertaining and belonging to the finishing of the said House of Correction are yet to be provided, without which it cannot be used to that end for which it was intended: It is therefore now ordered that the said capital messuage, stable, curtilage and other the premises in the occupation of the said Henry Norwood and George Sherley, esquires, together with one piece or parcel of ground adjoining to the garden wall of the said Henry Norwood, as the same is now severed and divided, and lying and being within the court or yard of the House of Correction aforesaid, shall be forthwith sold by such of the said Justices as did purchase the same, and that the money to be received upon the said sale shall be employed for and towards the payment of such debts as are due and owing by the said Treasurers or other Justices to such persons as ought to have the same, and for the fencing in and enclosing of the garden adjoining to the House of Correction aforesaid, and for the finishing and making fit of such rooms in the said House as shall seem most necessary to the Justices appointed by the order of the last Quarter Sessions to take the care of the ordering of the said House.
