Protection granted by the lord Deputy and lords in Parliament to James Gernon, son and heir to Sir Patrick Gernon, of Gernonston, who was attainted for adhering to Thos. Fitzgerald, and has since continued with O'Neill, with whom it stands in doubt whether there shall be war or peace. Given in consideration that he knows O'Neill's country, and to last until he obtains the King's pardon. 22 June 33 Hen. VIII.

|22 June.||917. Wallop to the Council.|
According to the King's commission and instructions of the 3rd inst. to Wallop, Ric. Lee, and Ant. Rowse, touching the seditious fellow Morres Appowell, who, at the Lord Privy Seal's being here, stirred a mutiny among his fellows the labourers, they sat upon the said Morres in the market place upon market day, 19 June, and produced the two persons who accused him before the Lord Privy Seal and Lord Admiral, who openly declared his seditious words. Condemned him to be hanged at 3 p.m. the same afternoon, and he was executed at a place outside the town, where he still hangs. Since then the labourers have done their duty more quietly. Will not write of the works as the King's surveyor, and Rogers, his master mason, have lately advertised the King of them. The trouble caused by springs at the Three Corner bulwark is overcome. Mr. Rowse's letter to thy King shows the state of provisions. Praises Rowse's diligence. Lack of garniture and lodging for soldiers within the castle and danger in case of sickness.
All quiet on the frontiers. Sent a spy to Amiens, who saw no men of war, but a few footmen about Arde. All boughs of trees overhanging the roads are cut down to enable horsemen to pass with their spears. One M. de Verron reported that a great triumph should be now made at the marriage of the duke of Cleves with the queen of Navarre's daughter; and afterwards the French king with the Dolphin and duke of Cleves “should come down together.”
This morning came the governor of Feenis about restoration of certain cattle. He says Du Beez is returned to Boulogne, having been all along the frontier to St. Quyntyns, Peron, Guyze, and Varven, which last they are fortifying. The French king will go towards Lyons. Wrote how the said governor commanded that no more stone should be delivered at the usual quarries. He said he yesterday spoke to Mons. Du Beez about it, who said that in five or six days he would come to these borders hunting, and would then speak of it. Asks whether in speaking with Du Beez he is to follow the instructions brought by the Lord Privy Seal and Lord Admiral as well concerning the Couswade as Cowbridge.
To certify the state of the Emperor's frontiers as well as the French; describes how, hearing that Mountory should be fortified, Wallop sent thither an espial, who went with the lieutenant of Dorneham (for Frenchmen are not suffered to come there) and reports that the Great Master of Flanders is there engaged in taking measurements for fortifications, and his wife lies at Remyngham. Precautions taken there against the French.
Writes in his “said letter” of 700 or 800 cattle of Feenis taken upon the King's ground. When the news of it came to Arde it was supposed they were taken as a prey, and the labourers left their work, and the captain, who was at Landerton at the year's mind of Madame de Landerton, was sent for in haste. The cattle are all re-delivered, and they of Feenis fully satisfied. Guysnes, 22 June. Signed.

I have written to the King how far I have proceeded in the victualling of Guisnes Castle according to instructions given by the Lord Privy Seal and Lord Admiral at their late being here and by your lordships' letters. Lings and stockfishes which should be provided are too dear. The greatest want is coal. Mr. Sutton writes that your Lordships told him the King before Christmas last disbursed 200l. to Branlyng of Newcastle to provide coal to form a staple for Calais and Guisnes. None has come here. Please write the King's pleasure herein to the Lord Deputy, and I will convey hither the amount appointed. Sends a brevet of the victual received from Mr. Sutton hitherto. Explains some particulars, and estimates the cost of living of labourers at Guisnes; who may be boarded for 20d. the week, or may dine or sup for 1½d. a meal and if (as many do) they board themselves and take the King's victual “may escape better chepe.” Guisnes, 22 June.

I learn from the governor of Fyennes whom I sent to you that you and Madame your wife make good cheer. On Saturday I go to Arde, and if we could meet by the way, at Fyennes mill or elsewhere, I should be glad to see you. As I dine at Marquize I think midday would be a suitable hour to meet.

|24 June.||922. Francis I. to Marillac.|
Has received his letter of the 14th, and thanks him for his ample advertisement of occurrents, which Francis prays him to continue, especially touching the journey in the North and the King's health, which he desires as he does his own. Has seen what he wrote in cipher of Norfolk's conversation and conclusion that he would himself make some design to break the intrigues of the Emperor, which he would declare when they were in the North; to which time also Marillac reserved speaking of the match Francis wrote of. Warns him, as he has twice done already, to do that so dexterously that it may not seem to come from Francis or any of his Council.
Has letters from Ratisbon, both from the Sieur de Vely and De Morellet, that there is no longer hope of concord touching religion and that the Germans will not take arms for the matter of Hungary, if the Turk does not invade Germany. The Landgrave was to leave the Tuesday after the date of Francis's letters, which was the 9th inst., after which it is reckoned the other princes will not make long sojourn. The Emperor was not in the way to obtain anything touching Gueldres and Milan. The King of the Romans' men had been sharply repulsed in two assaults they made upon Buda; and, in an attempt to re-victual a town in Hungary, 4,000 of them were killed by the soldiers of the infant King (fn. 1) (roy pupille). Most of the gentlemen of the Emperor's house who went from Ratisbon are there dead. If the Emperor can escape from the place where he is, he will take his way into Italy. This news is to be given to the King of England, although Francis thinks he has heard it otherwise.

Business:—Upon suit made sundry times by Thos. Barnaby, merchant, on behalf of Bernard de Bernarde and Peter Tilley, for goods robbed from them on the coast of St. David's, five or six years past, by Thos. Palmer, Thos. Carter, and other English pirates, and sold to Thos. Lloyd, chanter of St. David's, and other inhabitants there, the said chanter was sent for and examined in presence of Barnaby; and said that he and others had indeed bought 9 ton of salt and 3½ tun of wine, but repaid the money to the said Bretons and received their acquittance, which he showed; he was therefore discharged until further matter should be declared against him. Letter written to Nic. Lambert and — Browne, captains at Guisnes, to appear before the Council at Westm. on 4 July; also a letter to Sir John Wallop and Ant.

St. P., iii.
Parliament began the morrow after Trinity Sunday, but, as Ormond, Desmond, and other lords of Munster were not arrived, the solemn mass of the Holy Ghost was deferred until Thursday, Corpus Christi Day. The said earls, with others, as lords Barrye, Roche, FitzMorice and Brymegeam, and McGilpatrike, now baron of Upper Ossorie, came on Tuesday and were at the mass. On Friday the Commons presented their speaker, Sir Thos. Cusake, who made a right solemn “preposition,” praising the King for his extirpation of the Bishop of Rome's power, and for his innumerable benefits shown to his people; which was prudently answered by the Chancellor. Ormond briefly declared both speeches to the said lords in Irish, to their contentation. Describes how he himself afterwards put forward the bill that the King should be king of Ireland, which was joyously agreed to by both Houses, and on Saturday received the Royal consent. There were present 2 earls, 3 viscounts, 16 barons, 2 archbishops, 12 bishops, Donough Obrien, Dr. Onolan and a bishop, deputies of the Great Obrien, the Great Orayly and many other Irish captains, and the Common House, wherein are divers knights and many gentlemen of fair possessions. Describes rejoicings in Dublin and how prisoners were delivered; and, on Sunday, solemn mass at St. Patrick's church, sung by the abp. of Dublin, after which the Act was proclaimed there in presence of 2,000 persons, and Te Deum sung.
Does not write more as the Council is writing. Being poor, sends a pair of silk gloves, “as of him that would as gladly present you with the empire of the whole world if it were in him to give.” Kilmaynam, 26 June. Signed.

|927. The King's Title to Ireland. (fn. 2)|
621, p. 14.
A statement of “the King's title to the land of Ireland, after the Chronicles.” Seven “titles” showing that the Irish were subjects of the king of Britain when he granted Ireland to them (they coming from Boyan, (fn. 3) the chief city of Boscoo, in Spain, of which city the said king was then lord “as our King now is”), that the Irish chiefs made voluntary submission to Henry II. and Richard II., that the Pope granted the island to Henry II. and the Irish clergy acquiesced. “Therefore, from the beginning to the end, good is our King's right to the lordship of Ireland, and therefore hold they them still for shame that thereof the contrary will say.”

|26 June.||928. Maltravers to the Lord Privy Seal.|
I send the King by Fras. Hawle the “plat” of the Mar[she], Mayne Brook and other low grounds. Hawle seemed loath to depart from hence and on my questioning him, said he had lately received letters directed to him and the Commissary here containing matters to be disclosed to no person. To that answer I give little [credit] thinking that the King does not esteem me so light as to be unworthy to be privy to any matter entrusted to them; but I beg to know whether he has received any such letters so as to know how to credit him hereafter. Calais,  June 1541. Signed.

|26 June.||929. Wallop to the Council.|
Wrote last that M. de Beez would speak with him in five or six days. On the 23rd he wrote that he was going to Arde on the Saturday following, &c., as appears by the letter enclosed. (fn. 4) Took the Surveyor, Mr. Rowse, Mr. Hall, and the four captains (fn. 5) with him, and was at the place of meeting early. Du Beez received them very gently and said he had been long absent, but was now going to see the works at Arde, and declared what fortifications the French king had in hand on the frontier, especially two castles near Hennowey. He desired that they might live friendly together and had brought a greffier to show the title upon which they had sown corn on ground which Pawlmer, the bailly, had averred to be the King's. Pawlmer had asked them to desist from ploughing the ground until he had spoken with the lord Deputy. They did so and waited a long time without answer, and finally sowed the ground on the strength of Madame de Fyennes' title thereto. Wallop answered that he knew nothing of the matter but had always heard the ground was part of the King's limits.
Spoke then of the quarry, and Du Beez said they might have as much stone as they liked there by asking for it, and that the quarry belonged to Madame de Fyennes. Replied we had always taken it without asking; but the King had a better quarry close by, so we would neither dispute nor confess Madame de Fyennes' title to it. No mention was made of the Couswade or Cowbridge. Du Beez said that if Wallop had not come so early he would have sought him at Guisnes. Gives conversation about the fortifications there and at Mountory, the numbers of workmen at Guisnes, Calais, and Arde, and the result of the musters in the Boulognois. Learns from Boulogne that secret orders are given for 2,000 men to be ready, and that some guess that the Couswade is to be mown this year. Wrote lately that a great number of scythes have come to Boulogne by water, so it might be presumed they intend such a thing or else to cut down the corn about Arde betimes. Will keep diligent watch. Du Beez said the French king was at Chastellerow and would go to Mollynes, and then if the Emperor drew towards Italy he would draw towards Lyons. He said he heard the King's Majesty would go northwards, and asked when. The Duke of Cleves was still in Court and his wife would remain there a year or two, being too young and very sickly.

|Meeting at Westm., 27 June. Present: Chancellor, Gt. Chamb., Hertford, Gt. Admiral, Vice-Chamb., Sadler, Chanc. of Augm., Chanc. of Tenths. Business:—Letter sent to Sir Ric. Bulkeley, deputy chamberlain of North Wales, to make restitution of a ship which had belonged to pirates called Palmer and Carter, and cause all such within his rule as bought goods robbed by the said pirates, about five years past, from Bernard de Bernarde and Peter Tilley, to restore the value into his hands or else appear before the Council.|
|27 June.||931. Thomas lord Dacre op the South.|
File of documents in Baga de Secretis, pouch XII., consisting of the following:— (fn. 6)
(1.) Suss.: Indictment, at Hellynglye, on Tuesday after Ascension Day 33 Hen. VIII., before Robt. Oxenbrige and Thos. Darell, justices of the peace, by the grand jury, viz., John Combes, Thos. Awodde, John Lusham, Thos. Praty, John Gattys, John Dyne, Thos. Washer, Wm. Erle, Ric. Wyllard, Thos. à Rede, Wm. Frende, Wm. Sheppard, and Ric. Hylder, who pray day for giving their verdict to Saturday in Whitsun week; on which day they come before Sir Humph. Browne, King's serjeant-at-law, Robt. Oxenbrige, and Thos. Darell, at Marisfeld, and find:—That Thos.

Duffeld, of Est Grensted, Suss., yeoman, and John Shelley, of Petcham, Suss., gent., did, 20 April 32 Hen. VIII., assemble at Hurst Mouneseux, in the mansion of the said Thomas lord Dacre and illegally conspire how they might best hunt the park of Nic. Pelham at Lawghton, Suss., with dogs and nets called “bukstalles” and other engines, and bound themselves to slay any of the King's lieges who might resist them in their illegal purpose. Then, on 30 April 33 Hen. VIII., they met again in the same house and divided in two parties, Fitzherbert, Bery, Foster, Maunser, Duffeld, and Shelley going towards the park by one way and the rest by another. On the way thither at a place called Pykehey in the parish of Hellyngleigh John and James Busebryge and Ric. Somener were standing, and, fearing lest they should be recognised and hindered by them, Thos. lord Dacre and those with him attacked them and mortally wounded John Busebryge, who died on the 2nd May following.
(2.) Commission appointing lord Chancellor Audeley steward of England for the trial of Thos. lord Dacre, who stands indicted of felony. Westm., 27 June 33 Hen. VIII.

|27 June.||932. Paget to Wriothesley.|
Though, no doubt, Mr. Sadleyr informs him of occurrents, will give a discourse of some proceedings since his departure. On Saturday, Mantell, &c., had their judgment in the King's Bench, where Mantell acted very temperately and charitably, and the rest behaved very discreetly, for young men. The same day lord Leonard was arraigned there, attainted, and judged. He spoke in his defence moderately and very reverently towards the King. He was at the bar from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., using as his chief buckler that he did none of the things laid to his charge without the consent of the Council, as proved by certain writings “in a capcase that Mr. Kingston had at the time of his apprehension.” He staggered most at Walshe's and Ashebolde's entertainment. However, before the inquest gave their verdict, he confessed to the whole indictment, and thereupon had judgment. In the mean season the lords Chancellor, Sussex, Hertford, Admiral, Duresme, and St. John, with Mr. Baker, consulted in the Star Chamber upon lord Dacre's case. They “made great conscience” to find him guilty of murder, and sent for the indictment twice or thrice, and would rather have used some means to make him confess. Knows not what they decided; but this day “he shall be arraigned, and with him, the common saying is, the lord Lisle. Mr. Sadleyr knoweth it not, and yet the Lieutenant told me so. Sir, I am sent for to the Council, and therefore must stay my writing until soon.
“At my coming to, the Star Chamber there found I all the lords, to the number of xvij assembled for a conference touching the lord Dacre's case; for the lord Lisle came not forth to day. To Council they went, and had with them present the Chief Justices, with other of the King's learned counsel; and albeit I was excluded yet they spake so loud, some of them, that I might hear them notwithstanding two doors shut between us. Among the rest that could not agree to wilful murder, the lord Cobham, as I took him by his voice, was vehement and stiff. Suddenly and softly they agreed, I wot not how, and departed to the King's Bench together; whereas, the lord Chancellor executing the office of High Steward, the lord Dacre pledd not guilty to the indictment, referring himself to the trial of his peers, and declaring, with long circumstances, that he intended no murder, and so purged himself to the audience as much as he might. And yet nevertheless, afterward, by an inducement of the confession of the rest already condemned, declared unto him by the judge, he refused his trial and, upon hope of grace (as I took it), confessed the indictment; which he did not without some insinuation.” His judgment was to be hanged. It was pitiful to see so young a man by his own folly brought to such a case, but joyful to hear him speak at the last so wisely and show himself so repentant.
Yesterday the lords were with the King to confer upon the articles enclosed. To the three first, although they sought means to enter an entreaty of pardon, his Majesty “would not hear of it but slipped them on, saving that he appointed Cox to resort to the lord Leonard for his ghostly father, and willed execution of them all to be respited.” The fourth he referred to their discretion; in the treaty whereof they desired to have one appointed to write their despatches. The King said I should be left behind with them, but afterwards said he would consider whether to leave me or Mr. Sadleyr. I would rather serve in your company. The determination of the other points is totted upon every article's head. Today after dinner the Council was with the King to declare lord Dacre's humble submission, “hoping thereby to move his Majesty to pardon him; which took no effect, for tomorrow shall the lord Leonard, Mantel, Roydon, and Frowdes suffer, and the lord Dacre upon Wednesday. God have mercy on them and give them grace to repent their evil doings and to take patiently their deaths. Ysley, Cheney, Middleton, and Goldue[ll] are appointed to have the King's mercy.”
The earl of Murrey is to take musters in Scotland along the Borders, fearing, as the earl of Westmoreland reports, an invasion from England. Sir John Nevel suffered on the 15th inst., and, the same day, 30 prisoners for felony, robbery, &c. The works at Guisnes go up apace, and the Frenchmen are afraid. The French king comes back (as the ambassador told my lord Privy Seal) to Paris. Commendations to my lady your wife. Westm., 27 June.

|28 June||935. Deputy of Ireland and Others to Henry VIII.|
St. P., iii.
Describe the meeting of Parliament and passing of the Act for Henry VIII. to be king of Ireland much as in St. Leger's letter of 26 June (No. 926). Send the names of all the lords, English and Irish, that were present, who all subscribed the said bill. Lords and Commons petition that henceforth this style may be used “Henry th'Eight, king of Inglande, Irelande, and of Fraunce, Defendor of the Faythe, and in Erthe Supreme Hed of the Churche of Inglande and Irelande.” Beg to know his pleasure in this.
Donough Obryen and Obryen's attorneys appeared and gave willing consent to the Act, but Oneyle will not come to any honest conformity and seems the only gall and poison of this realm. Cannot well at the same time pursue the civilising of Leinster and maintain war with Oneyle, and therefore use persuasion. Had his messenger present in the Parliament chamber and afterwards wrote him another letter that if he refused to resort to the Deputy as other noble men did they would (setting all other exploits apart) proceed to his correction.
As directed by the King's letters, send an article engrossed under the Great Seal, to be passed as an Act here, concerning conditions to be inserted in letters patent to those that now submit; which, being certified under the Great Seal of England, shall be passed accordingly. In the same letters, under the article touching McWilliam, the King warns them not to depart with Crown lands. All McWilliam's lands are parcel of the earldom of Ulster, and few or none of the disobeisants have any lands that are not the King's. Advise that, as they have been so long in possession, they should (unless the King make a general conquest) have their lands upon honest conditions, and so confirm the King's right to punish them if they transgress.
Orayly, being at Parliament in the apparel the King gave him, sued for his lands. As he is a man of great power he should have the honour of viscount and be called viscount of Cavan, which is his chief town. Ask the King to write his pleasure to Orayly and also that the Deputy and such of the Council as he thinks meet shall divide his country, so that every gentleman may have reasonable living to him and his heirs as he (Orayly) has.

Is informed that John Petwell, an Englishman dwelling in Antwerp, has there not only detained and destroyed merchandise which Sir John Fourman, alderman of London, committed to him to sell, but also has forged Fourman's signature, so as to charge him with goods he never received; whereupon his office at Antwerp has been broken open and his books seized by the town officers, who refuse to restore them. Begs her to order the said books to be restored, and to have the case settled according to justice without delay. Westminster, 30 June 1541.

|30 June.||941. Marillac to Francis I.|
Everyone here knows that the King today commences his progress, which extends as far as York. He will not return to this town until the end of October; as appears by a memorandum of the places he will pass, the sojourn he will make there, and the provisions necessary,—an order rendered necessary by the company, which may number 4,000 or 5,000 horse, whereas ordinarily he takes only 1,000. As the thing is new, nothing else is talked of. More than 200 tents are carried, artillery is sent by sea and river to within 10 miles of York, and the great horses are taken as if it were a question of war; all because the King, during his reign, has never visited these places, where, for his first entry and for the danger of the daily rebellions, he wishes to be well accompanied by men of these parts in whom he has more trust.
Before his departure he has given order for the Tower to be cleared of prisoners, and, as he lately began by the execution of the countess of Salisbury, the lord Nevel, and others of whom Marillac wrote, such progress has since been made that in eight days all will be despatched, either by condemnation or absolution. Already lord Leonard de Grec, commonly called de Clydas, of the house of Osserter, allied to the greatest lords of England, and for five years this King's lieutenant in Ireland, on Saturday last, the 25th inst., was led to Westminster, and there, according to the old custom which is resumed, judged and condemned by the twelve men deputed to this judgment, and two days later beheaded in front of the Tower, in which he had been detained more than a year. Is told that his accusation was (1) that, being King's lieutenant in Ireland, he sent raiment and money to some rebels who were his relations; (2) that by his means a cordelier who was in prison for maintaining the Pope's authority escaped; and (3) that he defrauded the soldiers of their pay and so caused mutiny. The same day, was led to judgment a young lord called Dacre of the South, also allied with the greatest lords of England, and of 6,000 or 7,000 ducats income, who, for assembling armed men with the intention of seeking a park keeper whom they wished to slay, and slaying another in place of the man they were seeking, was condemned to be hanged, and yesterday was executed at the common gibbet of London, called Tyburn. His three companions suffered the like death, who were Mr. Mantel, one of this King's 50 gentlemen whom he calls his Pensioners, a controller of his customs, (fn. 12) and one Reddyn, of a Kentish family; all three gentlemen of good house, aged 25 to 30, and much esteemed. The other seven or eight who were at this muster have been taken to be executed on the spot. For the other prisoners in the Tower, if it is not this week, it will be the next, like poor lord Lisle, deputy of Calais, the Master Porter, called Palmer, who was taken with Mr. Wallop, and the son of the late lord Montague, who is said to be in the same danger as the rest, although he is very young and innocent.
Although it is not spoken of, and there is as yet no clear evidence, those here seem to have something on their stomach difficult to digest. Upon diligent inquiry learns that the news from Germany scarcely pleases them, and that Winchester has taken leave of the Emperor and is returning. They are also very indignant that the lords of Ireland who had come in to them, when convoked to a Parliament there, have proved disobedient and revolted. What weighs more upon them is the alliance of Francis and the duke of Cleves, from which they doubt annoyance some day, because of the injury they did to Madame, his sister, who is repudiated. As they suspect all friendships of their neighbours and have no more trust in their intelligence with the Germans, it is probable that they will try to make their league closer with the Emperor, to make him forget the injury to him through his aunt queen Katharine, or else seek to make war between the Emperor and Francis, that they may be secure and sought by both sides. Since he has been here, has not seen so much appearance of it as these ten or twelve days, in which the Emperor's ambassador has been twice at Court, and things have been discussed which have given much thought to both sides, but they are kept very secret. Some say the question was the marriage of lady Mary, and Marillac believes there has been something about that, but the King's words to him before and the difficulty about legitimation, the Pope's authority and the reservation of the Crown to the young Prince of Wales, make it impossible to persuade any man of judgment here that they intend to give hope of succeeding to this realm to a stranger. Besides, duke Philip of Bavaria, to whom she was formeriy promised as illegitimate, lately sent a personage (fn. 13) to learn their determination, who received an answer rather putting him in hope of having her than refusing. The said lady Mary would not speak, apart, to the Emperor's ambassador when he was last at Court, although he went so far as to enter her chamber; for as he entered by one door she went out by another, and sent him word that she would not, for him, incur the displeasure of the King, her father, as formerly happened for the same cause. The ambassador was much displeased and returned quite confused. It was said that the Sieur Duprat was coming on the Emperor's part, but that is now not continued, and in few days the truth will be better known.
Seven or eight days ago, Norfolk left for his own house and afterwards to attend the King at Lincoln, where the writer intends to be, to see if anything will be said on the subject of his preceding letters in cipher, and to fulfil Francis's instructions.

|30 June.||944. Wallop. to Henry VIII.|
Has sundry times informed the Council of an assembly of footmen in Bullonoies, supposed to be with intent to cut and carry away the grass in the Couswade, and wrote by Captain Lambert that Mons. de Beez and Mons. de Cannye had sent desiring that he would, the next day (yesterday), meet them about Ballingham at 3 p.m. Learnt the same night that 900 footmen had come with De Beez and De Cannye to Arde, and as he had spoken with De Beez only five or six days before, began to suspect his sending for him again so soon. Thought that if he took with him, as last time, the Surveyor, Mr. Rowse, treasurer, and the four captains, the Frenchmen might take them all and come straight to Guisnes, where the castle would be in great danger, as the brayes lie so open and the ditches are dry. Describes his precautions, how he left the Surveyor, Mr. Waugham, and Mr. Wingfeld ready to put 400 of their best men into the castle, brought in the ordnance that was in the brayes, and left certain light horses in divers places by the way, within sight of each other, to signal if they saw him go into Arde (which he would not have done without being forced). Took with him Mr. Rowse, treasurer, Mr. Pawlmer, the captain, and his brother the bailiff, and a sufficient retinue. Met M. de Beez, M. Cannye, M. de Torsey, lieutenant of Arde, and St. Cheval, captain there, in a highway that separated the pales. They made as though they would ride with him towards Guisnes, but he stayed them. Describes the conversation, in which De Beez said their coming was only that his companions might see Wallop, and that Torsey, who was to remain, should become acquainted. Wallop said he heard there was an assembly of men made with intent to mow the Couswade. They all protested they knew of no such intention, adding that there was little grass to cut, because of the horses that served for their works eating there. Noted that saying, but made no answer, being satisfied they would not cut it by force, whereupon would have arisen great bruits, such as arose when Wallop was in France, when they made again the Cowbridge. Spoke then of Mountorey, they asking if the castle there were sufficiently fortified, seeing that the men who came from Gaunt had gone away. Then De Beez said De Cannye was made lieutenant of all Picardy, under Mons. de Vandosme, and that he himself was made one of the four marshals, and that both were shortly going to Court at Mollyns, and were to report how their master's money was employed on the fortifications of the frontier. They invited him to sup with them at Arde, but he said it would be too late for him to return, and that besides, he would not come there till it was fully fortified, lest it should be thought he came to spy the manner of their fortifications. And so they parted in very friendly sort.
The Surveyor is informed that it has been reported to the King that more workmen are here than can be employed, for lack of stuff. Dare affirm that since his coming there has never wanted stuff to employ all. The master mason and other honest persons say that few of the bricklayers are good. The Surveyor sends the numbers of the workmen, and his estimate for some more to be employed till Michaelmas, which Wallop, with Mr. Rowse, treasurer, and John Rogers, the King's mason, has examined, and finds correct. As the year is so far spent, approves of the increase of the number to 60 trowels more until Michaelmas. The Surveyor and Rogers certify the state of the works, which the writer takes such pleasure in visiting, forenoon and afternoon, that all other his accustomed pastimes are almost forgotten.

|945. The Peace of the Realm.|
Circular letter to the justices of the peace, expressing surprise that notwithstanding “sundry advertisements lately made” to them to do their duties, things are not directed with any regard to the “good monitions” set forth for the advancement of justice. Warns them of the danger they incur by this negligence, and commands them to have special regard to the following points:—1. The King, having expelled the usurped power of the bishop of Rome, with all its branches and dependents, desires that privy maintainers of that papistical faction be tried out, as the most cankered and venomous worms in the commonwealth, enemies to God, and traitors. 2. Raisers and spreaders of bruits touching the King, his honour or surety, the state of the realm or the mutation of any law or custom, are to be punished. 3. Sturdy vagabonds and valiant beggars are to be punished according to the late statute, the neglect of which has bred no small inconvenience; and, to this end, the watches, which, by statute, are kept from Ascensiontide to Michaelmas, shall this year be continued until Hallowtide. Those who resist any watch or other officer are to be punished, [unlawful games suppressed, and every man encouraged to use the long bow as the law requires]. (fn. 14) 4. The justices shall earnestly bend themselves to the advancement of justice between party and party, that good subjects may have the benefit of the laws and evil doers be punished.
The King trusts that this gentle admonition will stimulate them to atone for past remissness; but, if any neglect it, “the next advice shall be of so sharp a sort as shall bring with it a just punishment of those that shall be found offenders in this behalf.”

Report by Henry Ree, pursuivant, that, 27 May last, he received at Berwick the King's letters to the king of Scots, with which he rode to Edinburgh. There the Cardinal stayed him and sent word to the King; who sent for him to Stirling, where he delivered the letters to the King himself. As to the secret letters from the King to the Queen his sister, she sent secret word that she durst not speak with him and he sent her the letters by her servant; and received letters from her again, and a black velvet doublet as a reward. Two days after, the King went to St. Andrews and sent to Edinburgh for the Cardinal and the rest of his Council; and 14 days after, at Edinburgh, the Secretary delivered Ree his letters and 8 crs. reward. The King was very sorrowful for the death of both his children, dying suddenly within 14 hours. Shortly after their death the abbot of Paisley was sent into France. Command is given in Scotland for all to have harness and be ready to serve the King. Workmen in Edinburgh castle have long been making guns and other ordnance, and they have a mill there that has made six barrels of gunpowder within three weeks since Easter. A “justice ayre” is sitting at Gedworth, under Argyle, the Treasurer and Comptroller, where no man is executed, but compounded with for money. Signed: Herre Ray.
