Report to the King from the Treasury Lords concerning the case of Sir Thomas Strickland, Farmer of the duty on Scotch and foreign salt for 21 years at 1,800l. per an., who by order of Council of March 5 last is admitted an accomptant for the said duties for the year 1667, Sept. 29, to 1668, Sept. 29. His accompts, as stated, shew receipts of 1,869l. 11s. 3¼d. for that year. But for the same period the Customs officers of London port charge him to have received 27l. 12s. 0d. for the old farm and 1,341l. 13s. 11d. for the new farm and similarly the Surveyor of the Customs in the outports charges him to have received 1,021l. 16s. 7d. within the same time, making 2,391l. 2s. 6d. in all, which is a matter of 529l. 11s. 2¾d. more than said accomptant charges himself with. In reply hereto Strickland says that the 27l. 12s. 0d. of the old farm was due to old farmers of said duty and that he paid it to Sir Ralph Delaval et al., said old Farmers. For the rest he says that he had the King's directions to receive only 8s. 4d. a wey of Scotch salt until further order and to take bond for the remainder of the duty, and that betwixt 1667, Sept. 29, and 1608, April 29 he accordingly only received 8s. 4d. a wey for 975 weys and for the remainder took bond in 500l. of one James Cockburne. Strickland complains that as the trade stands at present between the two kingdoms this duty will not bear 1,800l. rent. But one Nathan Eldred. on behalf of the salt manufacturers of Shields and other parts of England has proffered, if the present farmer shall refuse to collect the duty laid by Act of Parliament on Scotch salt and to hold his patent on the present terms, that they will give good security for 1,800l. a year rent for that duty without defalcations.
