William Johnson, one of the Burgesses, * * complained upon * Monyngton, who had beaten him, and put him in Fear of his Life: Whereupon Monyngton came to this House, and, not knowing Johnson to be a Burgess, confessed he had stricken him, for that he took away a Net out of Mr. Bray's House, in Bedfordshire; and Johnson said, it was the Lord Mordaunt's Net, and as Under-sheriff he took it: Whereupon, it was Ordered, That Monyngton was sent Prisoner to the Tower.
