Jurati in Causa Johannis Bennett, Militis: videlicet,
King's Answer touching his Judgment ver. Yelverton.
The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury reported, That
Yesterday, according to the Direction of the House the
Second of this May, he presented the Petition of their
Lordships unto the King's Majesty; humbly desiring,
that His Majesty would be pleased that this House may
continue Judges of Sir Henry Yelverton, for the Matter
concerning His Majesty's Honour, at which Time His
Majesty said, "that, in Example of that most famous
Queen Elizabeth (when this whole House was a Suitor
unto Her), He must return an Answer answerless;"
But now, this Morning, His Majesty's Answer is:
"The Lords knowing that they enjoy their Honours
from Him, and under Him, He doubts not, but that
they will be most tender of His Honour; and therefore He doth return back unto their Lordships the
whole and final Ordering of that Business of Sir Henry
Agreed, That Thomas Emerson, whom Sir Henrie Yelverton vouched 30 Aprilis, to bring a Message unto him
from Mompesson, be sent for, and examined thereon; and
then, the Business being prepared, to appoint a speedy
Day to proceed against Sir Henry Yelverton.
The House is adjourned ad libitum; during which
Precedents concerning the Commons Judicature.
The Lords, having considered of the Precedents alledged by the Commons at the last Conference 5 Maii,
they found that they tended to prove,
1. That the House of Commons is a Court of Record.
2. That they have ministred an Oath in Matters concerning themselves.
3. That they have inflicted Punishments on Delinquents, where the Cause hath concerned a Member of
their House, or the Privileges thereof.
And their Lordships having Determined, that the
Question at this Time is not, Whether that House be
a Court of Record, nor whether the Oath by them alledged to be ministred in a Matter concerning that
House was ministred by that House, or by a Master
of the Chancery (then being one of that House), nor
whether they have Right of Judicature in Matters concerning themselves; but the Question is, Whether that
House may proceed to sentence any Man who is not a
Member of that House, and for a Matter which concerns not that House; for which the Commons alledged
no Proofs, nor produced any Precedent.
Their Lordships agreed to pray a Re-conference about
the same; and, at the Conference, to handle this only;
videlicet, That the House of Commons have no Power
of Judicature nor Coercion against any, but in Matters
concerning that House. And the House was moved,
That, for a friendly Ending of this Business, a Sub-committee (of a small Number) of both Houses might be
propounded to accommodate the same.
The House being resumed;
Message to the Commons.
Message was sent to the Commons, by Mr. Serjeant
Crewe, Sir William Bird,
To desire a free Conference between both Houses
about the same Business, they met on Saturday last, concerning Floud, To-morrow, in the Painted Chamber, at
Three in the Afternoon.
They will attend the Re-conference, at the Time and
It, having been much debated (whilst the House was
adjourned ad libitum), Whether the Lords, at this Reconference, shall propound a Sub-committee to be had
for the accommodating of this Business, concerning
Floud, if the Commons do not desire it; and it being
now put to the Question, it was agreed, That, if the
Commons do not desire it, the Lords may, if Need be.
