November 1607

Sir Oliver Lambert to the King.
[Before November 14, 1607]. The late Lord Lieutenant of Ireland was directed by the King to bestow upon petitioner the next vacant place for which he had the requisite qualifications. Since then there have been vacancies which petitioner believes he could have filled competently, but they have been disposed of otherwise. He now asks that his daily pension of 14/- be increased to 20/-, to be paid out of the Irish revenues during his life, and that he be granted a lease in reversion for 50 years of such parts of the Abbey of the Navan as have been leased to one Wakeley, and of the parsonage of Selsker with the hospital or termon lands to the value of £20 held on lease by him for 20 years yet to come.— Undated.
