Mar. 24. Memorial to the King from the Treasury Lords concerning Customs officers in the Isle of Man. The letter of Dec. 31 last from the Privy Council to the Earl of Derby desired that an officer of the Customs should reside there to perform his office. He thereupon replied to the Customs Commissioners that his own officers shall in all occasions be charged to take care of and communicate to the said Commissioners what is for the King's service to be done there, but that he will not admit of any commission or private instruction from the said Commissioners to be obeyed in the said island. We submit copies of these letters to your Majesty with our opinion that it may be a great prejudice to the revenue if officers appointed by the Customs Commissioners be not permitted to act there, as they have done for several years past, because there are great opportunities of running prohibited goods ashore from the said island. We therefore offer that some care be taken that such officers be permitted by the Earl of Derby to reside in the Isle of Man and to perform their duty and have the said Earl's countenance therein.

Governor), "which will amount to about 500l. per an.," be granted for three years, for the maintenance of the ministers, viz. 100l. to the Commissary and the remainder to be distributed by the Governor and Commissary [as an augmentation] equally among the resident ministers : and that the net product in England of the 1d. per lb. duty as below and the Crown part of forfeitures as below, and the lands on the south side of Blackwater and Pamunkee Neck, and the office of Surveyor General be granted as below for ever towards the maintenance of a free school and college. Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) I, pp. 353-363.
Preceded by. (1) Report, ut supra, p. 1725, dated 1692, July 15, to the King from the Treasury Lords on the two memorials, the first, ut supra, p. 1408, concerning a free school and college to be erected in Virginia, and desiring bestowal of several branches of the revenue or rights of the Crown ; the second, supra, p. 1409, concerning an augmentation of the salaries or maintenance of the ministers [of religion] in the said Colony. We referred same to William Blathwayte and the Customs Commissioners, and we submit their reports, ut supra, pp. 1503-4 and infra, p. 1965.
We see no objection to a grant of the following particulars, "which doth not appear to us to have been appropriated or to be necessary for the immediate support of the Government in that Colony," viz. :
(i) the 1,985l. 14s. 10d. mentioned in said Blathwayt's report. But in reference hereto we must observe that your Majesty pays 600l. per an. (upon the establishment of the Forces in England) to the executors of Lord Culpeper for his surrender of the quit rents in 1684 : and that if the 1,985l. 14s. 10d. be granted as desired the Governor of Virginia would have [to have] recourse to your Majesty if money should be wanted for fortifications or other unforeseen exigencies of the Government in Virginia.
(ii) The growing quit rents, which are particularly desired for a salary to the Commissary of the Clergy and the residue to be distributed among the several ministers of the country by way of augmentation.
(iii) The net product arising in England of the duty of 1d. per lb. on exported tobacco, after sale here of said tobacco as proposed above by the Customs Commissioners.
(iv) The lands on the south side of Blackwater and Pamunkey Neck to the extent of 10,000 acres in each tract : in free and common socage.
(v) The office of Surveyor General in Virginia to be in the disposal of the College whenever vacant.
(vi) All escheats to the Crown (not already directed) by any law there made : but it is a point of law whether escheats can be granted before they actually accrue by the failure of heirs general or special.
(2) Blathwayt's report of 1691-2, Feb. 22, ut supra, pp. 1503-4.
(3) Report, dated 1692, June 30, to the Treasury Lords from the Customs Commissioners on the memorial and papers concerning the erecting a free school and college in Virginia (as by the reference of April 21 last, supra, p. 1605). We have no cognizance of the quit rents and other revenues in Virginia (which it is desired to be appropriated to the maintenance of said college) save only the penny per lb. on tobacco exported thence to any other of their Majesties' Plantations, being a duty imposed by 25 Car. II., c. 7, which was intended not so much to raise a revenue to the Crown as to prevent an unlimited trade then in practice of carrying tobacco to another [Plantation] and conveying it thence into divers parts of Europe to the great hurt and diminution of the Customs and of the trade and navigation of this kingdom. According thereto it has been the constant care of the Customs Commissioners, England, by instructions to the officers and otherwise, to restrain [restrict] as much as possible the shipping of tobacco and other the enumerated commodities to England only ; insomuch that the whole produce of this imposition in Virginia and Maryland hath little more than defrayed the officers' salaries, boat hire and other incidents for the managing and collecting thereof. Yet, nevertheless, could the said duty be well and truly collected (which hath hitherto been rendered very difficult by reason of the large rivers in the country and distance thereof from each other), it might reasonably be supposed that the same would amount to 3-400l. per an. more than the necessary charges of the management and collection as aforesaid besides what may arise to the King by the King's share of forfeitures on bonds, ships and personal informations, by a vigorous and effectual execution of the Acts of Trade and Navigation within Maryland and Virginia. The collection of the said duty and the whole business of the Act of Parliament relating thereto is to be ordered and managed by the Customs Commissioners, England, under the authority of the Treasury, and may not therefore (however appropriated to particular uses by such grant as is desired) be otherwise managed. But the Governor of the said College may be very serviceable by supervising and inspecting the actions and proceedings of the [revenue] officers in the matter in order to a more strict collection of the duty and more due observance of the Acts of Navigation, and may also render to England from time to time an account of any undue practices in the said offices. We therefore offer that instead of allowing to the officers (six collectors and one Comptroller in Virginia and two collectors and one Comptroller in Maryland) three fourths of their collection of the said duty of 1d. per lb., together with incidents, there may be established certain salaries on them from 30l. to 50l. per an., and that all tobacco collected in lieu of said duty may be brought to England and pay duty and be sold and the produce applied to said salaries etc. and the residue towards the said [College's] uses, if granted as prayed.
(4) Order of reference, dated Whitehall, 1692, July 28, from the Privy Council to the Attorney General of the above report of the Treasury Lords, viz. as to the point of the grant of escheats.
(5) Undated report thereon to the King in Council by Sir J. Sommers and Sir Tho. Trevor.
It appears to us that the tenure by which the lands in Virginia are holden of the Crown of England is in free and common socage as of the manor of East Greenwich. The consequence of this is that where any person dies without heir his land will escheat to the Crown as having the immediate seigniory. We are of opinion that escheats of this nature cannot be granted before they happen otherwise than by a grant or alienation of the seigniory itself, which we suppose is not intended to be done.
There are other escheats upon attainders of treason which are not incident to the tenure, but belong to the Crown as a prerogative royal, of whomsoever the land be holden. It seems to us very doubtful whether such royal escheats may in any manner be granted before they happen. But if it might be done we do not think it advisable for the Crown to part with such a right and to put the forfeitures for treason in other hands.
(6) Undated memorial concerning 2,000l. raised out of the quit rents now begged for the College of Virginia : as calendared in Calendar of State Papers, America and West Indies, 1689-92, pp. 672-4 : being in effect a reply and traverser of the concluding paragraphs of the above Treasury report with regard to the necessity of conserving the quit rents for the requirements of the contingent charges of the Government of Virginia. In reply whereto the writer asserts that whatever forts have been built in the country and any charge of maintaining garrisons in them has still [always] been defrayed by a public levy upon the people who have never been backward, when ever the Governor called an Assembly when they were far less numerous and consequently not so able to bear the charge of a public levy as now they are etc. ut ibid.
[This memorial is probably by James Blair.]

Fitzharding, to be Keeper of the Pall Mall in St. James's Park, with a grant of all that house or lodge called the Mall House and a little garden thereto belonging near the said Pall Mall, during pleasure, with the wages, fee and allowance of 100l. per an. The present grant is to revoke the grant of 1689, June 11, of the premises to John How, esq. King's Warrant Book XVII, pp. 138-9.
Oct. 26. Royal warrant to the Attorney or Solicitor General for a great seal for a grant to Sir Cornwall Bradshaw, Sir Nathaniell Johnson, Anthony Rowe, Robert Nott and William Bridges of the forfeited estate of John Hind, goldsmith, deceased : as by an inquisition taken at the Globe Tavern in Hatton Garden, co.
