In the said account Bertie is charged inclusively with the sum of 3,678l. 7s. 0d. which he was to have received upon tallies stricken on the Hearthmoney, but all the money due upon the said tallies (except 150l. allowed to the Hearthmoney Farmers) was unduly received by Thomas Kirwood, who is since deceased, and by him was paid or accounted to Anthony Rowe. This was proven in the Exchequer Court at the hearing Feb. 21 last of the cause then depending [between the King and said Rowe] concerning the said money, and the said Court then decreed that said Rowe and Jno. Hind, administrator of the said Kirwood, should be charged to the King with the residue of said 3,678l. 7s. 0d. being 3,528l. 7s. 0d., after deduction of said 150l. and with 6 per cent. interest thereon from the time said Kirwood received said money. This sum is since paid into the Receipt by said Rowe. Therefore said Bertie is to be hereby discharged of his debit of 2,746l. 15s. 7d. and is further hereby to be paid 931l. 11s. 5d. (balance of said 3,678l. 7s. 0d.) out of the moneys paid into the Exchequer by said Rowe. Of the said 931l. 11s. 5d. the allowance of poundage in his said account to said Bertie makes 506l. 10s. 5d. and the remainder is for his overpayment as above. Further, Bertie is hereby to be paid 121l. 11s. 6d. for the interest of moneys so overpaid by him; and 73l. 5s. 2d. for his charges in passing the said account.
