Miscellaneous, 1549

206. The Masters and Owners of the ship Mary of Lubeck, and the Merchants who had goods on board of that vessel, to the Magistrates of Lubeck. Complaining that although, in consequence of their letter to the Protector Somerset of 24th May, Robert Sentleger, who had plundered that ship the year before, had been condemned to imprisonment until restitution should be made, nevertheless such sentence was of no avail, not only because the said Robert was not strictly incarcerated, but allowed to go at liberty whithersoever he would, but because, in face of the sentence, his brother Anthony Sentleger had taken possession of all his property on the plea of its being hypothecated to him for a previous debt. Wherefore they entreat the magistrates to memorialize the King of England on their behalf. [Latin. Four pages.]
207. Bond by King Edward VI. to Anthony Fugger and his nephews for the sum of 328,800 florins, repayable on 15th August 1550. [Seven pages. Draft.]
Another draft of the above obligation. [Five pages.]
