July 23. The Treasury warrant of this day's date to William Hewer ut supra, p. 1245, concerning payments for the houses at Tangier is repeated in the Money Book [probably in the month of October, 1684, but the second entry is fictitiously given the same date as the original entry] with the following addition, viz.: We are informed that several leases and writings relating to the proprietors of several of the said houses were committed to the custody of Mr. Nicholas Sandford, an alderman of Tangier, and that the said writings with several other papers were lost on board his Majesty's ship the Seedan prize, when she was cast away in her return from Tangier. You are therefore hereby (upon the oath of said Sandford that such papers were in his custody and were so lost) to proceed in the paying the respective proprietors as they are stated in the report of the Commissioners appointed [by Lord Dartmouth for adjusting the value of the said proprieties] taking from them receipts etc. ut supra ibid. Money Book V, pp. 98–9.
