July 17. Royal warrant to the Treasury Lords to give warrant to Phillip Ryley (lately employed in Dean Forest) with the assistance of the officers of Dean Forest, co. Gloucester, and with approbation of two of the Justices of Peace of the county, to cut away so much holly, hawthorn, crooked beech, birch, hazle and stoggall oaks in places as follow in said forest as will produce 800l. per an. clear "for so long time as the same may conveniently be raised without any prejudice to the state of said forest"; and out of the moneys so to be raised to repair the mounds and fences in such parts of said forest to preserve them from the browsing of deer and cattle; and to build pounds for cattle in some convenient place in Lea Baily at a charge not exceeding 3l.: rendering account of the whole before the auditor for said county: all by reason that said Ryley has reported the necessity of cutting said wood which "may be converted to cordwood without danger of overstocking the market where there are so many furnaces and forges that want it and which will never be timber or of greater value than now they are but rather run more into decay by standing longer"; and further he reported that 800l. clear per an. may be raised thereout for many years to come with advantage to the young oak and straight beech; and further that by the Act [of 19 and 20 Car. II, c. 8] for preservation of said forest "we [the king] may enclose of the waste ground in any part of the said forest not exceeding 11,000 acres at any one time and that there is now but 2,500 acres or thereabouts enclosed in the whole, whereby the common is enlarged to the people and their stock of cattle thereupon increased proportionately and the said underwood and young timber growing therewith [is] exposed to the injury of both; but that were the underwoods cut and inclosures made and kept until the younger timber should become past danger of browsing of deer, cattle and other prejudice" such parts so deemed safe might then be laid open and other fresh parts cut and enclosed, thus improving the condition of the timber in few years: further that the cost of such enclosures will be small, many of the grounds having been formerly enclosed and others being bounded by the lands of the freeholders: of all which report the King has approved. King's Warrant Book XIII, pp. 37–9. Warrants not Relating to Money XII, pp. 342–4.
Appending: schedule of such wood and underwoods as may be usefully cut as above. In Aywood 3,000 short cords of holly, hawthorn and crooked beech: needs not to be enclosed because of the thickness of the timber that will be left standing and because of the many highways through it. In Edgehills and Badcock's Bayly 6,000 short cord of crooked beech, hazle and holly: formerly enclosed and easy to re-enclose. In Blyth's Bayly 3,500 short cord of crooked beech: bounded by freeholders' lands and only wants two gates. In Moorwood 2,000 short cord of crooked beech and in Hangerbury 4,000 ditto of crooked beech and birch: formerly enclosed and easy to re-enclose. In Bradley, the Copes and Bromehill 5,000 ditto of beech, birch, holly and hazle: bounded partly with a hedge and ditch and easy to re-enclose. About Worcester Lodge, Wimberley, the Buckhold and Cannop 10,000 ditto of beech, some birch and hawthorn: fit to be enclosed. From Mosely Gate down Blackpoole Brook to Blackney Furnace and about Deadman's Cross 10,000 ditto of beech and some hawthorn and birch: "this being very full of trees that will be left standing for timber, will not need enclosing." In the Fence of Stoggall 250 ditto of oaks that will never be timber: bounded round with the lands of freeholders and only wants two gates and three perches of hedges to enclose it. In the heart of the forest from the brook betwixt Seridge and Daniel Moor to the Dam-brook and so to Sinderfad Bridge and thence along Middle Ridge to Mosely Gate and thence along the way to the top of Stonedge to Seridge and at Missy Hurst 6,250 short cords of old decaying hollies and of hawthorn and birch. Total cords, 50,000: estimated at 4s. per cord is 10,000l. (Treasury warrant, dated July 30, hereon accordingly to the said Philip Ryley.)

II against Joyce Buckeridge for great misdemeanours: it appearing that Edmund Buckeridge, her husband, and Seaborne Buckeridge, his son, and Morgan Swinney, innholder, became bail for her in 200l. each and that there has been levied on them near 300l. which was paid into the Exchequer, leaving still standing out her original fine of 100 marks and 200l. of Seaborne Buckeridge as surety. The said recognizances are hereby to be vacated. King's Warrant Book XIII, p. 40.
