Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of Kemp's Field, Bunches Close and Doghouse Field, alias Brown Close, parcel of the Bailiwick of St. James, in order to a grant thereof to William, Earl of Portland for ever under the several rents of 52s. 6d. and 16s.: as in lieu of certain defective fee farm rents conveyed to him, and in consideration also of faithful and acceptable services.
Prefixing: said Surveyor's report on said Earl's petition for same. Presuming it might be necessary for his Majesty's service and for his lordship's interest to have those defective fee farm rents [re-] conveyed to the [Fee Farm] Trustees as a consideration for this intended grant, I desired my Lord's agent to ascertain them, "which it seems he is not able to do at present" they being granted (amongst many other rents in divers counties) by deed from the said Trustees to his lordship dated 1696 Sept. 18 which passed in consideration of 2457l. answered by a tally struck in the Exchequer the 11th of the same September. But he alleges that six several rents supposed to have been issuing out of fen lands in Lincolnshire, amounting to 611l. 6s. 0d. [per an.] and the yearly rent of 100l. 5s. 0d. payable (as 'twas believed) out of the manor of Rudfen in Warwickshire included in the said deed and making together 711l. 11s. 0d. are irrecoverable; and that he is informed there are in the same grant divers other defective rents amounting to 200l. or 300l. [per an.] more but those being not particularised I am not able at present to give an account thereof.
As to the premises desired they are parcel or reputed parcel of the manor or bailiwick of St. James's and were granted in 1660 to Jno. Harvey and Jno. Coel in trust for the late Earl of St. Albans by two several leases for 21 years and 10 years the last of which expired at Michaelmas 1691; and on 17 July 1672 another lease thereof for 33 years from 1681 Sept. 29 (concurrent with the former) was made by the Queen Mother and her Trustees to the said Mr. Harvey and Sir John Coel in trust as aforesaid; and a further term of 28 years was granted by Charles II 1674 Sept. 10: so that at Michaelmas last there were 37 years to come on the said grants. The reserve rents therein were as above.
On 8 March 1693–4 these lands (with the rest of the said manor or bailiwick) were petitioned for by the Duke of Ormonde and I reported thereon April 3 following and observed therein that the several houses or tenements now erected thereon (excluding the ground whereon St. Ann's Church is built with the Greek church and alms houses granted in fee and the unfinished house granted to the Duchess of Monmouth for a long term of years) in the following streets and places viz. King's Square alias Soho Square, Greek Street, Church Street, Moor Street, King's Court, Compton Street, Frith Street, Charles Street, Sutton Street, Queen Street, Dean Street, north side of King Street, west side of Hog Lane, Falconbury Court and the south side of Acton Road (being almost all St. Anne's Parish) contain in the several fronts about 12000 foot which considering all casualties which might happen during the 41 years then in being I valued at 10,500l. per an. and though part thereof in Dean Street has been since lately granted to Thomas Pitt by for 99 years in reversion at a small rent yet I conceive the reversion in fee now proposed (after the 33 years in being) may be valued at 25,000l. and the rents of 3l 6s. 8d. (which will become due to the grantee immediately if the fee simple [be] passed) at 20 years' purchase makes 68l. 10s. 0d. or in all 25,068l. 10s. 0d. Warrants not Relating to Money XV, pp. 430–2.
Dec. 23. Privy seal for 300l. for equipage and 40s. a day as ordinary to Mathew Prior Esq. as Secretary to the Extraordinary Embassy to the Most Christian King: with the usual clause for allowance of his extraordinaries. King's Warrant Book XIX, p. 449.
