Mar. 7.Treasury warrant to the Treasurer's Remembrancer, Clerk of the Pipe, Comptroller of the Pipe and Edward Ange to repay and restore to all Recusants who have certificates of the loyalty of themselves or of their relatives all moneys levied or that shall be levied upon them [and not answered to the Crown]; and to take effectual course for staying all process against them: all in accordance with the privy seal of 1685–6, Mar. 11, and the warrant of Treasurer Rochester of 1685, July 7, supra, pp. 255, 610–11.Warrants not Relating to Money XII, pp. 25–6.
Same to John Fisher, Deputy Surveyor General of Crown Lands, for a particular of the manor of Hempholme, co. Yorks, with a view to a fresh lease thereof to Hugh Bethell for 99 years terminable on the life of him, John Acklam and the life in being; at 5l. per an. rent and fine of 240l.Ibid, pp. 27–8.
Prefixing: (a) note of said Bethel's petition for same. (b) Said Fisher's report dated Feb. 19 last thereon. The existing lease was granted in 1674 for 99 years, terminable on three lives, whereof two died not long after and the third, Francis Thompson, is a good life. The manor lies near petitioner's seat of Rise and was granted to his uncle, Sir Hugh Bethell, at 5l. per an. rent and without fine in consideration of his services towards the Restoration. It was valued by the Parliamentary survey at 130l. per an. above a reprize of 16l. per an. for banks and sewers. It appears to have come to the Crown by exchange in Queen Elizabeth's time as parcel of the possessions of Sir Thomas Heneage, kt., and was then rated at 105l. 13s. 4d. per an., which was more than the tenants could hold it at, the chiefest part being marsh, fenny and low ground subject to being overflowed, so that I am credibly informed the clear profit doth seldom arise to 80l. per an. in the dryest time, but much less in most years, and late inundations have done extraordinary damage to the banks and there is no wood growing within the manor to help towards it.
Same to same for a same of the pasture ground called Queen Leaze, with a view to a lease thereof to the inhabitants of Bray for 31 years from 1701, May 5, at 50s. per an. rent and fine of 20l.Ibid, p. 32.
Prefixing: (a) note of said petition, ut supra, p. 1183. (b) Report thereon by said Deputy Surveyor General. The premises were granted in 4 Eliz. to trustees for the town of Bray for 21 years at 50l. per an. rent and fine of 12l. 10s. 0d. and therein is recited a former grant by Henry VIII for the like term. In 1610, May 5, James I granted it for 60 years at same rent and fine of 55l. This term not expiring till 1670, May 5, the townsmen might think themselves secure; but Sir Nicholas Fortescue (amongst divers other things) got a grant thereof 1629, Oct. 19, for 31 years in reversion, which they [the inhabitants] were obliged to purchase of his executors in 1650 and paid 110l. for it. The ground contains not above 30 acres and is not worth above 30l. per an. above the rent in wet years and 20l. per an. in dry years. The vicar, reeve and tenant of the rectory have common of pasture for their beasts in it. The profit of the land is put to charitable use, being for repair of the church and relief of the poor, most of the parishioners being tenants to the King and pay considerable rents to the Crown.
Mar. 8.Royal warrant to the Clerk of the Signet for a privy seal for a grant to William Winde, esq., of the respective forfeited recognizances of 500l., 250l. and 250l. given 1685, May 30, by respectively James Carrier of Ilminster, co. Somerset, blacksmith, and John Walden and Thomas Carter of the same, yeomen, as manucaptors of the said James Carrier for his appearance at the next assizes for said county: all in consideration of the good and faithful services of said Winde.King's Warrant Book XII, pp. 51–2.
Same to same for a same for 16,000l. to Richard, Visct. Preston, Master of the Great Wardrobe, as imprest for the service of said Wardrobe. (Money warrant dated Mar. 21 hereon. Money order dated Mar. 22 hereon.)Ibid, p. 53. Money Book VIII, p. 90. Order Book II, p. 46.
Same to the Warden, Master Worker and Comptroller of the Mint to forthwith pay to the executors of Dame Barbara Villiers 761l. 9s. 4d. in full of the arrears of the sum of 2d. per lb. troy of silver moneys coined in the Mint, viz. from 1683, June 24, to 1686, Sept. 29, and likewise to pay to same so much as the said 2d. per lb. shall amount to until 1691, Aug. 9: all as by the grant under the great seal dated 1681, Aug. 26; the late King having by a grant under the privy seal dated 1681–2, Mar. 22, granted her 600l. per an. in lieu of said poundage, but with a clause of revocation at will; which 600l. per an. has been paid up to 1683, June 24, and no further, and it is certified that the said poundage from 1683, June 24, to 1686, Sept. 29, comes to 761l. 9s. 4d., which makes 234l. per an., and that if the King were disposed to confirm the said grant of poundage it would be a lesser charge upon the King [than the said 600l. per an.]. The said poundage is hereby to be computed in such manner that the future payments thereof may be satisfied weekly or otherwise as the said silver moneys shall be coined, the defraying the charge of the Mint being always in the first place provided for.King's Warrant Book XII, pp. 53–5.
Same to the Clerk of the Signet for a privy seal to stay all process against Roman Catholics. The King having formerly 1685–6, Mar. 11, supra, pp. 610–11, ordered the superseding of process against loyal Catholics, does hereby order the restoring, paying and discharging to all and every his subjects who (by the certificates made in 1681, 1682 and 1683 made by the Receivers of Recusants' Forfeitures) shall appear to be of the Roman Catholic religion, all moneys grown due or that shall grow due to the King thereon and all moneys levied and received thereon and not yet answered to the King and, further, all process against the said persons touching the premises is hereby to be superseded: all whether such certificates of loyalty, ut supra, pp. 176, 610–11, be produced or not.Ibid, pp. 55–6.
Same dormant to Edward Griffin, Treasurer of the Chamber, to pay from time to time 317l. 15s. 0d. per an. to Tho. Hobbs, Chirurgeon to the King's person (in place of James Mullins, deceased, thereto appointed by signet and sign manual 1685, Oct. 5): and 280l. per an to Tho. Frasier, Chirurgeon, who was appointed in 1685, Oct. 5, to be Chirurgeon to ride with the King a hunting, but is made Chirurgeon to the Household in place of said Hobbs on said Hobbs succeeding said Mullins. The 100l. a year hitherto paid to the Chirurgeon to ride with the King a hunting is hereby to cease and determine as from Christmas last, from which date the above payments are to commence.Ibid, p. 57.

Mar. 8.The Treasury Lords to Mr. Cholmondesly et al. Justices of the Peace in co. Chester. We referred to the Hearthmoney Commissioners the letter you sent to us and that which Mr. Cholmondesly sent to Sir John Ernle relating to the payment of Hearthduty for bakehouse chimneys and private ovens. We find that the said Commissioners had letters from their collectors in Cheshire on the same occasion. The Commissioners inform us that the case in difference between the complainants and the collectors is agreed to be that there are in said county bakehouses in several private houses in which is a chimney and therein an oven and a furnace used for baking and brewing and a hearth used for any raking out the embers out of the oven and the furnace; that some of those hearths are not used for any other use than for raking out the embers and others of them are used for other uses besides the raking out of the embers. The said Commissioners are of opinion that in all cases where the firehearths in such private bakehouses are used for any other use than for receiving the embers raked out of the oven or furnace such firehearths are liable to pay the duty, although the oven and furnace are exempted. But where the firehearths in such bakehouses are used only for receiving the embers raked out of the oven or furnace and not for any other use such firehearths ought not to be charged with the duty. But the Commissioners conceive it unreasonable that the collectors should be put to prove that such firehearths in such private bakehouses are used for other uses. They conceive that the occupiers of such private bakehouses ought to make an affidavit before some Justice of Peace that they never used such firehearths saved for receiving the embers raked out as above. We approve of this opinion of the Commissioners, for it is grounded on the opinion given by all the Judges of England in the case which has been communicated to all the Justices in your county. We think it ought to be complied with and the duty paid accordingly. The Commissioners have directed their officers to demand and levy the duty only in such cases as above. We therefore desire you to direct all the inhabitants to pay Hearthduty for all firehearths in private bakehouses used for other purposes than merely receiving the raked out embers; and that all due encouragement be given to the officers in collecting same. (Entry struck through and this letter replaced by a letter dated Mar. 22 inst. as follows.) The case is that there are in Cheshire, as there are in most other counties who [which] never scrupled the payment of the duty, a great number of hearths in and adjoining to which are an oven or furnace or both and a large hearth, some of eight or ten foot space, fit for any other use whatsoever besides the mere receiving the embers out of the oven or furnace in or adjoining to the hearth; "which hearths you would have exempted, as seems by your letters, for the sake of the oven or furnace, unless the officer will swear that these hearths are otherwise used." On reading your letters and discoursing the Hearthmoney Commissioners thereon we are of opinion that where a hearth is such as in itself is liable to pay the duty such hearth can't be exempted from payment by virtue of an oven or furnace at one end thereof; for by the law all ovens are as chargeable as any other hearths [and] only private ovens [are] exempt. But the hearth in a chimney wherein there is an oven which may be made use of for boiling and roasting or the like is as liable to the duty as if there were no such oven belonging to it: and the contrary opinion will be very prejudicial to this revenue for that it may exempt many more hearths than we believe you yourselves would pretend to have exempted. But if the oven or furnace be so made as that the hearth or floor for receiving the embers raked out of the oven or furnace be capable of no other use such hearth or floor may be exempted as a necessary requisite to the oven or furnace, and in such cases we have directed the Hearthmoney Commissioners to order their officers to forbear levying the duty. But we desire you to take effectual care that all inhabitants do pay their duties for their hearths in private houses that may be used for other occasions than receiving the embers of the private oven or furnace as above and that all due encouragement be given etc. ut supra.Out Letters (General) XI, pp. 51–2, 63.
Mar 8.Henry Guy to the Customs Commissioners for a certificate whether Joseph Ash be dead and what interest he had in the office of Surveyor of the Navigation Act; and whether said office be now void and what its value.Out Letters (General) XI, p. 52.
Mar. 8.Treasury warrant to the Customs Commissioners to employ John Ellesdon as a landwaiter in Weymouth port loco William Duke, lately dismissed.Out Letters (Customs) XI, p. 20.
Same to Sir Nicho. Crispe, Collector Outwards, London port, to swear in Robert Williamson as deputy to Richard Peirce, one of the five undersearchers of London port.Ibid, p. 22.
Treasury reference to the Customs Commissioners of the petition of the merchants of Salisbury and of the inhabitants within the city of New Sarum; shewing that the undertakers authorised for making the river Avon navigable from Christchurch to Sarum have now completed the work of the said river and made a more commodious haven near Christchurch already sufficient to receive a vessel of 100 tons and upwards; and the petitioners have hitherto undergone the great charge and inconveniency of landing their goods at the ports of Poole or Southampton and bringing them thence by land carriage, which is double the expense they are now at by carrying them up by water from Christchurch to New Sarum; and that the said work cannot have its effect to the advantage of this city and the country adjacent and the increase of commerce and trade unless there be a Customs Collector attending at Christchurch: therefore pray his appointment there accordingly.Reference Book V, p. 39.
Same to John Fisher, Deputy Surveyor General of Crown Lands, of the petition of Sir John Coell, kt., shewing that by a grant to him and his heirs two beast markets are to be held weekly for ever in two closes of ground called the Brookfeilds in the parish of St. Martins in the Fields, co. Midd.: that the said two fields contain only 14 acres and that the interest and estate thereof now in being is only for 36 years and the immediate reversion in fee simple thereupon is in the Crown: therefore prays a grant of the inheritance in the said markets and permission to purchase the [Crown's reversionary] interest in the said fields, as after the expiry of the present grant petitioner will have no place whereon to hold the said markets.Ibid.
Same to Brooke Bridges and Tho. Done, Auditors of Imprests, of the petition of Henry Slingesby, shewing that heretofore by several petitions to the late Treasurer Rochester he prayed several necessary things relating to his accounts of the Plantations, Dunkirk money and Coinage money with estimates concerning them all which have often been referred to the [late] Mint Commissioners, but no return has yet been made thereto; therefore prays that a speedy report be ordered thereon so that the Treasury Lords may be informed what money is due to petitioner.Ibid, p. 40.
