Order for Mr. Hampson to make up Rolls in the Statute Office.
Whereas the House was this Day informed, "That, by Act of Parliament of 23 H. VIII. the Clerk of the Statutes was enjoined to make Two several Rolls indented, of all Recognizances acknowledged by that Act, One to remain with the Chief Justice or Mayor of the Staple and Recorder, the other to remain with the Clerk of that Office, for Public Use; and Sir Thomas Hampson deceased, late Clerk of that Office for the Years 1634, 1635, 1636, 1637, 1638, 1639, and 1640, made up no Rolls, only Entries of Statutes in Books, so that nothing appears in the Office of the Statutes in those Years: And whereas Rob't Hampson, Son and Executor of the said Sir Thomas, doth detain the said Books, and hath not made up the said Rolls for the said Years according to the Statute in that Behalf made, and also refuseth to deliver the said Books into the Office, whereby the present Officer might make up the said Rolls:"
It is ORDERED, That the said Robert Hampson shall make up the Rolls out of the said Books, thus kept out of that Office, within One Month after the Date of this Order, and return them into the Statute-office for Public Use, or otherwise deliver the Books abovementioned into the said Office within the said Time prefixed; both which Things if he shall neglect to do, their Lordships cannot but look upon it as a high Contempt to this House, which he must give an Account of accordingly.
