Same to the Auditor of the Receipt to make forth certificates of the abovesaid several sums detailed, when they would have been paid in course if there had been no stop of the Exchequer, and how the persons are entitled, whether originally in their own names or by assignments from others. This is to assist the Auditor concerned [Aldworth] in making up the interest account as the interest is to commence from the date same became payable in the Exchequer. Deliver said certificates to bearer or send them to Auditor Aldworth. Ibid, pp. 84–5.
Same to Mr. Chetwin to forthwith pay into the Exchequer all taxes moneys now remaining in your hands, otherwise process will immediately issue against you. Ibid, p. 83.
Same to the Navy Commissioners to pay Mr. Bland for arrear of rent of his house where you keep your Office; paying him out of the weekly money for the Navy in convenient proportions to prevent Bland troubling the Treasury further about this matter. Ibid.
Same to Mr. Rowe and partners [Contractors for the Hearthmoney]. You have not paid the tally for 1,826l. 10s. 0d. payable out of your advance money due at June 24 last. Pay it forthwith so that the King's credit may not suffer; as this money is for lands bought by the King at Gosport. Ibid.
Same to the Auditors of Imprests to attend the Treasury on Tuesday morning next with Mr. Slingsby's account as Master of the Mint. Ibid, p. 84.
[? July 1.]Treasury instructions to the Customs Commissioners in reply to their representation of June 30 last. (1) We will submit to the King your proposal for making allowances not exceeding 5s. per hogshead or one fourth value in cases where prohibited French goods are seized and nothing can be recovered from the proprietor. (2) We will consider your proposal touching putting the collection of Customs outwards London port into the hands of Sir Nicholas Crisp, Phillip Warwick, Edward Bertie and Timo. Thornbury for their patent salaries. As the present Jerquers are not sufficient to do the work of their office and to examine the warrants with the cash book, Mathew Humberston, the deputed Receiver outwards, is to be added to their number; for the present he is to apply himself at his present salary of 80l. per an. to examine all warrants inwards London port and to compare them with the cash book for discovering any falsity in warrants or any counterfeit warrants. On the death of a Jerquer no new Jerquer to be named, but 20l. to be added thereout to said Humberston's salary, and the rest saved. (3) For the future patents for Customs places to be during pleasure, not for life, and the patent landwaiters of London and Bristol are not to have the power of making deputies. (4) In accordance with our instructions of April 19 last (supra, p. 28) you have uspended the collection of Exeter port into the hands of John Roop, the Customer there. You are to dismiss James Walker, the Collector, he having kept the King's money in his hands so long that there appears little probability of his paying same, it being of ill consequence to his Majesty's services to suffer such practices. Over and above his [present] patent salary [as Customer] Roop is to have 40l. per an. for two clerks, as allowed to Mr. Walker. Thereby 120l. per an. will be saved to the King. (5) We shall advise with the Barons of the Exchequer and the King's Remembrancer upon the rules which you have presented to us touching the coast bonds. (6) You may treat with Mr. Clement, the assistant to the General Surveyors, about his going into Ireland to undertake the business of the Plantation ships coming there, as you desire, in regard Mr. Hayes for himself and Sir Thomas Worsopp declines that employment. (7) We agree to your proposal in your report of April 26 last on Ralph Williamson's petition, viz., that no one succeed him as deputy Searcher London port, but that said place be supplied by a supernumerary landwaiter. We are against the coming in of officers by surrenders, as greatly prejudicial to the King's service. Out Letters (Customs), pp. 63–4, 70–1.
Followed by: reference dated July 2 from the Treasury to the Barons of the Exchequer and the King's Remembrancer of the proposals concerning said coast bonds as in clause 5 supra: said proposals being as follow, viz.: [a] That no bonds given for delivery of coals and other subsidy goods laden coastwise shall henceforth be taken by any officer in any port without the approbation of the deputed collector; nor any certificate accepted in discharge of such bonds without the like approbation: for which purpose he is to witness such bonds and sign the certificate and a copy thereof is to be sent to the Customs Commissioners for their directions concerning the same. [b] That all the certified coast bonds be returned by numbers into the Exchequer with the port books at the end of every year, viz., at Christmas with notice thereof to the Customs Commissioners: and that the Coast Books in all the outports be like and kept in like method as those in London port, viz., expressing the name of the ship and master, goods, port of lading and date of certificate: and that therefore the books be made 4 inches broader than heretofore; and that the certificate be not only well affixed to the bond at the loading port, but that the same be endorsed on the back itself, to wit only the port of lading and the master's name, goods, date of certificates and officers' names who signed: this endorsement to be signed by the Collector, Customer and Comptroller where the bond was taken: no bond to be put in process which is endorsed as above and appears by the Coast Book to have had a certificate for discharge even if the said certificate happen to be torn off or lost, unless there be information that such certificate is false. (c) That all forfeited and uncertified bonds be carefully returned by list examined and signed by the collectors as patent officers within one month next after the six months limited by the condition of such bonds. And whereas said bonds are often sent up to the King's Remembrancer by carriers and other uncertain persons, whereby great inconveniences have come to the King, for the future all forfeited and uncertified bonds are to be sent from the outports to the Customs Commissioners to be by them, within 14 days after receipt, sent to the King's Remembrancer who is to give an acquittance to the party bringing same.

Report to the King from the Treasury Lords on the petition of Mary Kirk, widow (as by the order of reference from the King dated April 23 last). We find it true that the late King Charles I by a great seal dated 1647–8, February 24 (which was enrolled before the Auditor for co. Northampton 1660–1, March 15), did in consideration of 2,500l. therein mentioned to be paid to the King by George Kirke, petitioner's husband, grant to petitioner in the name of a jointure an annuity of 500l. for term of her life, to be paid out of the rents of the Honor of Grafton half yearly at Michaelmas and Lady day: the first payment thereof to be made after the death of the said George Kirke: with direction therein to the Receiver of said Honor to pay said annuity accordingly. but without any clause to charge the premises with a distress. The proof for payment of said 2,500l. by Mr. Kirk is a tally given to him for the same dated the day before the date of said grant. In 1665 said Honor of Grafton was inter al. granted to trustees as part of the Queen Consort's jointure. By Sir C. Harbord's report to the late Treasurer Danby no reprise was made for the said annuity out of the Queen's value because the said grant to Mr. Kirke, who was then alive, was not of the lands or rents of said Honor, but of a contingent annuity. Said Mr. Kirk died in May, 1675. After his death petitioner applied to the Queen's Council who referred the case to Sir William Jones, Attorney General, and William Montague, the Queen's Attorney General, and Sir James Butler, the Queen's Solicitor General, who reported that they conceived it just said annuity should be paid, but that the said grant cannot at all incumber the settlement of the Queen's jointure, for the land itself is not charged or chargeable, nor the rents or profits thereof in the hands of a farmer or grantee: whereupon the said Queen's Council declared they could not relieve the petitioner. On the whole matter we are of opinion that petitioner has an equitable pretence to the annuity petitioned for when your Majesty's revenue shall be in a condition to bear it (struck through and replaced by) a suitable compensation for said 2,500l. Warrants not Relating to Money, pp. 21–2.
Same to same from same on the petition of Samuel Roll, Esq., praying a grant of the reversion of the manor of Woodlands and other manors and lands in co. Dorset (for the benefit of himself and such as are possessed of any part of the premises) upon paying 10l. into the Exchequer, according to a clause in the deed mentioned in said petition. We have consulted Sir William Jones, Attorney General, and are of opinion the petition may be granted. Ibid, p. 22.
Same to same from same on the petition of the inhabitants of the town of Faversham as by the order of reference from the King of May 23 last. Said petition sets forth that in the late war, 1672 and 1673, petitioners quartered sick and wounded seamen for which 900l. is due to them, which they pray speedy payment of as being long due. The Navy Commissioners have certified that the said arrear is 959l. 1s. 4d., and that it would be of advantage to the King's service some speedy care be taken for payment thereof as also such further sums as remain unpaid upon the like account unto any of the other ports. Ibid, p. 23.
