May 15 Report to the King from Treasurer Clifford on the petition of Sir William Kerr (as by the order of reference of April 9), who prays a remission and confirmation of a grant from James I. of certain debateable lands lying between England and Scotland. The said lands called Wester Stalford alias Whitefield and Halden Rigg, co. Northumberland, were granted by King James 1606-7, 2 Jan., to Sir George Ramsey and Thomas Lumsden and their heirs for ever. On inquisition they were found to contain 1,200 acres valued at 49l. per an. It further appears that there was a patent of grant of the premises passed under the Great Seal of Scotland, in June 1660, to said Sir William Kerr : by which the said lands in part or in all seem to lie within the kingdom of Scotland ; and thereof seisin was delivered unto him pursuant to the said patent as belonging to him by grant derived from said Ramsey and Lumsden. A new grant may reasonably be passed as desired : with the reserved rent of 6s. 8d. per an., and with covenants for endeavouring the recovering of said lands within the next 10 years.

May 31 Treasurer Clifford to the Northumberland Commissioners of Assessment for the last poll concerning their neglect in not assessing some part of the county nor causing same to be levied and paid to the Receiver General in other parts of the county where it was assessed and collected, and in not transmitting to the Exchequer the duplicate of such assessments whereby the certain charge on the county might be known. For several years past letters have been written to you on this. Out of respect I give you this further instruction to see the arrears in the hands of any collector paid to Henry Brabant, Receiver General thereof, and to forthwith transmit the duplicates for the whole county to the King's Remembrancer's office.
