Bp. of Ely's Estate.
Mr. Ashburnham reports, That, according to the Vote of this House, he and Mr. Clarke had attended the Lord Bishop of Ely; and acquainted him with the Desires of this House, to make Mrs. Barker a Lease of the King's Head Tavern in Chancery Lane, for Three Lives; and to take Consideration of the Covenant for new-building the House; and use Mrs. Barker reasonably: And that his Lordship had readily consented to make a Lease for Three Lives to Mrs. Barker, at the Fine agreed to; which was so moderate, that it did not exceed Four Years Value; and therefore there was no Cause to remit any Thing of the Fine, or to mitigate the Covenant for new-building the House with Brick.
