Raleigh's Restitution in Blood; and Confirmation of Letters Patent to the Earl of Bristol.
Hodie 1a et 2a vice lecta est Billa, An Act for Restitution in Blood of Carewe Raleigh, Son of Sir Walter Raleigh, late attainted of High Treason; and for Confirmation of certain Letters Patents made by our late Sovereign Lord King James to John Earl of Bristol, by the Name of John Digby, Kinght.
This Bill was exhibited by the Earl of Bristol.
A Petition exhibited by the said Carewe Raleigh was also read; and the said Bill and Petition were committed to the Lords Committees appointed for the Bill exhibited by the said Carewe Raleigh for his Restitution.
Earl of Sussex's Privillege. Brockett's Arrest.
This Day William Brockett, Servant to the Earl of Sussex, was brought before the Lords, by the Sheriffs of London, by Virtue of His Majesty's Writ of Habeas Corpus, awarded by this House primo Maii. The which Writ and Return being read; the Lords, considering that he was arrested in Execution, contrary to the Privileges of Parliament, delivered him out of Prison. Et exonerantur Vicecomites prædicti.
And whereas it appeared also, by the Return of the said Writ, That the Goods of the said William Brocket. were taken in Execution; their Lordships referred in to the Committee for Privileges, to consider whether the said Goods, so taken in Execution, are to be re-delivered unto him also, by Privilege of Parliament.

Walgrave Hospital, versus Baud.
Whereas it was signified this Day to the House, That there was an Hospital founded in Walgrave, in the County of North'ton, about the Time of King Henry the Sixth, by a Blacksmith, and endowed with divers Lands, in Walgrave, Hollcott, and elsewhere, which at this Day are let at One Hundred and Forty Pounds per Annum; and that the Evidences of the said Lands were ever kept in a Chest placed in the said Hospital, until, about Fifty Years since, the Lady Mallorye (sometime Wife of one of the Lanes, Lord of the said Town) violently brake up the said Chest, and took them away, and kept the said Lands in her Possession, without taking any Lease thereof, allowing notwithstanding somewhat liberally to the Relief of the Poor of that Hospital, as likewise did all the Lanes, and Mr. Sanders the first Purchaser from Lane, whilst that Land was in their Possession. But the said Town being since sold to one Pagett, and from him to Baud, these last Purchasers have seized upon the said Lands, and have now placed only Six of their own Servants in the said Hospital, allowing them no more than Twenty Shillings a-piece per Annum, for which also they do them good Service. The Lords this Day Ordered, That whereas Ferdinando and William Baud are already, by the Order of this House, to shew Cause at the Bar why the Decree in Chancery against Lane should not be altered, That they do also, at the same Time and Place, shew by what Right and Evidence they detain the said Lands from the Poor People of the said Hospital; and also, That such of the said Town of Wallgrave, and the Places adjoining, as are able to witness this Wrong done to the said Hospital, shall attend at the Hearing thereof; and also that Mr. Serjeant Crewe, Mr. Noye, and Mr. Glanvill, are desired by the Lords to be of Counsel herein, out of their Charity, on the Behalf of the said Hospital; and lastly, That Mr. Justice Dodderidge and Mr. Justice Crooke shall peruse the said Evidences, and direct as much as they hold convenient and necessary to be shewed to the Counsel of the said Hospital, and be ready to deliver their Opinions in the Point unto the Lords, at the Hearing.
These Lords are added to the Committee for the Bill concerning the River of Medway: videlicet,
E. of Sussex.
E. of Dover.
L. Bp. of Salisbury.
L. Bp. of St. David's.
L. Bp. of Landaffe.
