[Treasury Minute Book V. pp. 40-1.]
A series of papers relating to the farm of the Irish revenue.
(1) Undated. The proposal of George Pitts on behalf of himself
That the proposer and his associates be commissionated to
manage and receive the revenue in Ireland for seven or
They will accompt for and pay to the King the whole product
of said revenue for said term.
They will secure and pay to the King bona fide 241,456l.
[per an.] certain, of net clear money, at such times as will be
convenient for the King's occasions : to be discounted and
allowed as part of said produce.
To be allowed for their hazard, care and pains herein 3s. out
of every 20s. of the whole produce of said revenue, but this is
not intended to diminish said sum of 241,456l. per an. for that
sum shall come clear to the King.
That the whole clear surplus above the said 241,456l. per an.
and above the said poundage of 3s. per shall be accompted
for and paid to the King.
That they will advance and pay down in England a quarter's
payment of said certain sum of 241,456l. on sealing the grant,
the King allowing interest and exchange for same : and will
give such security for performance as shall be approved.
(2) The King's reply hereto, dated 1675, Sept. 4.
(a) The King expects Mr. Pitts and partners to advance a
quarter's rent without any allowance of interest or exchange.
(b) And to submit to the abatement of such quit rents as are
now under consideration, not exceeding 5,000l. per an.
(c) That they shall pay their rent every quarter day or in
40 days after.
(d) That they shall receive the profits of the casual revenue
as it shall be paid into the Exchequer but that it be managed
by the King's officers.
(e) On these conditions the King is contented to accept
240,000l. per an.
(f) without any defalcations.
(3) The reply of said William Pitts and associates to these conditions
of the King.
(a) This was never put upon any farmers ; much less can it
be expected of those who are only contractors for the King's
revenue as bare trustees and managers without any propriety
in the revenue other than to secure their advance money and
their reward for management. And if the King insist thereon
(whereas it is given out by the other proposers, the late
Farmers and Undertakers, and other persons who pretend to
be knowing in the affairs of Ireland, that we have a very hard
bargain already) this is to make it, upon the whole, 7,000l.
per an. worse. And if this be expected because the [said late]
Farmers and Undertakers did in their joint proposals (as we
are informed) offer to advance a quarter's rent, without interest,
yet they reckoned it as 5,500l. per an. of 238,500l. per an.
offered by them. Therefore hope that the interest of the
advance money will be allowed and deducted quarterly out of
the 240,000l. per an. and reckoned at so much in the constant
establishment, till the repayment of the money [and] with the
[reckoning at such rate of] exchange which shall be current at
any time when same shall be repaid.
(b) This also, as we are informed, is (in the joint proposals
of the present Farmers and Undertakers) reckoned at 5,000l.
per an., as part of their 238,500l. per an., and if it be not
allowed to us as part of the 240,000l. per an. it is a further
increase and addition to the same, which, by their reckoning,
would make our proposals to be at least 252,000l. per an., and
though we make no doubt but that our proposals will, bona fide,
be better to His Majesty than that sum, yet to engage ourselves
thereto is, in truth, to turn the management to a plain farm.
Yet we submit this matter to the King's pleasure to reduce so
much of the quit rents, charged or chargeable on the coarsest,
barrenest and most insolvent lands remaining in the King's
hands or granted unto any others, provided that not above
5,000l. per an. of the quit rents be so reduced.
(c) It is to be considered that there are, besides Sundays and
holy days, about 300 days in a year : and to limit the payment
[as herein] is re vera to necessitate us to employ so many
hands as will do the work within 40 days and must be idle above
half their time, which is a great loss to us (who propose to get
nothing but what we can save of the poundage), if we must
spend the poundage upon idle officers.
Item. It is inconvenient for the people, if what is due from
them be exacted with rigour and severity, as it must be
in this case unless the people, upon divers emergencies,
may have time to take the advantage of fairs and
markets to sell what they have, to pay their duties.
Item. The Army and Civil List shall be better paid than
ever they have been heretofore, for the payments shall
be made in such manner that the Army, by reason of our
days of grace, shall never have above four months due
unto them, but on warrants issued there shall be effects
to discharge them immediately, and the circulation of
that little [small specie] money in the kingdom [shall
be] so quick that the Army shall have money to discharge
their quarters frequently, and the people to pay the King
and carry on the trade of that kingdom, which hath been
much obstructed by reason great heaps of money have
heretofore been gathered together to answer a three
months' or a six months' payment.
Item. The conveniencies of all interests will be answered
if one third of the certain payments be made in 30 days
after the quarter, one third more in 60 days and the
remaining third in 90 days at furthest, and the uncertain
surplus to be paid as it can be got in.
(d) We never intended to meddle with any fines or forfeitures
upon any penal laws, forfeited recognizances for nonappearances
or any other particulars within the survey of the
Greenwax (excepting only what relates to the constant and
standing branches of the revenue) but to leave the same to be
ordered and managed according to the ordinary course of the
Exchequer, and that the produce thereof which shall be paid
into the Exchequer shall be reckoned as part of the said certain
sum [of 240,000l.], but we expect to have power to inspect the
same and to take care that whatsoever is levied on or paid by
the subject to the King's use shall be duly answered and
accompted for and paid into the Exchequer.
(e) If we should have the surplusage to our own use it would
be very inconvenient and so alter the whole frame of this
proposal and turn this affair into a plain farm. But since His
Majesty is pleased to offer us the whole surplus we thank His
Majesty and will be content with only 3s. 4d. per of the
whole produce instead of the 3s. per , which we do to avoid
a farm, and that we may be only His Majesty's Commissioners
and officers, and humbly pray that the surplus above 240,000l.
per an. and above 3s. 4d. per on the whole produce may be
applied to such public uses for increasing the trade and the
good of the kingdom as we shall propose and the King shall
(f) We intend no abatement, deduction, or defalcation of
the said sum of 240,000l. per an. for any foreign war which shall
happen during the term. But in such case [of war] we desire
(1) That after the term [of expiry of the present proposed
grant] we may enjoy a year of peace for every year of
war on the same terms [as in our present proposal].
(2) That a convenient proportion of the revenue may be
applied in time of war to maintain such a number of
ships to guard the seas of Ireland and secure the traffic
thereof as the King shall think fit.
(3) That the respective days of payment may, in case of
a war, be enlarged for 30 days.
(4) That the King's share of the prizes [which shall be]
brought into Ireland may be sold and disposed of there,
and that in times of a foreign war the King would
grant commissions to such privateers as shall desire
the same, [they] paying the due fees and duties.
[Treasury Minute Book V. pp. 43-5.]
Mr. Pitts and partners to give in their answer to the paper
[No. 2, supra p. 329] delivered to them.
The proposals for the Law Farm are to be given in.
[Day Book p. 96.]
Present : The King, the Duke of York, Lord Keeper, Lord
Treasurer, Duke of Ormonde, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Secretary
Coventry, Secretary Williamson, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
The answer of Mr. Pitts and partners to the paper given them
the 4th inst. by the King's direction is read [and the following
resolutions are come to].
(1) The King agrees that they shall have Irish interest for
their advance quarter.
(2) They submit to the abatement of quit rents not exceeding
5,000l. per an. without pretending to be judges of what is barren
land, but when it [the hearing of any petition for abatement
of quit rents] is doing [they] desire to be heard.
(3) The King agrees that the times of payment of rent shall
be one third part 30 days after quarter day, one third more
60 days after quarter day, and the other, 90 days after quarter
(4) The payment of their rent in three payments as aforesaid
is to be understood only of so much as the rent comes to,
besides 5,000l. per month which they have agreed to pay upon
every first day of the month (after the first month of the commencement
of their farm), and is to be looked upon as part of
the income of the Customs.
(5) The casual revenue is to be paid into the Exchequer and
managed by the King's officers and they to receive it out from
thence. The Attorney General is to consider how Viscount
Ranelagh's covenant on this point may square with this
(6) They are not to have any defalcations, but the King will
add a year of peace to their term for each year of war that may
(7) Their article about Prizes and private [privateer] commissions
(8) It being moved that most of the lands in Ireland being
held in Socage, and that, therefore, it may be pretended by
the Undertakers that a year's value of the lands is due to the
King for relief upon the death of any proprietor the King
directs that they must not pretend to make any benefit thereby.
(9) The King will have liberty, if he think fit, to make a free
port in each province according to the law in that behalf.
Of these two last articles [above] the Undertakers desire
further time to consider.
(10) They agree that the major part of them shall always be
in Ireland, fully empowered in all points without pretence of
sending for instructions from any of their partners in England,
and that the King may name two persons to be Commissioners
and sit with them and be privy to all transactions in this affair.
(11) The money which is to come next to the King is
240,000l., to be paid in manner aforesaid, and out of what they
shall collect more they are to have 3s. 4d. per for their pains,
and after that is satisfied to them the remainder is to be paid
to the King.
[Treasury Minute Book V. pp. 46-7.]
At the Council of Foreign Affairs, upon the going out of Mr.
Pitts and Sir John Babor, it was agreed with the rest of the
proposers for the Irish farm that, as a better security for the rents
and covenants of the said farm, they were to pay any sum not
exceeding 20,000l., over and above the 60,000l. agreed to be the
advance money, at any time when the King should think fit to
require same, the King paying Irish interest for so much thereof
and for so long as the said sum shall remain in his hands.
