Respect of Homage.
Mr. Attorney, according as he was appointed the 6th of May, declared his Opinion touching Respect of Homage done at a Coronation; videlicet, "That he advised with the Barons of the Exchequer herein, and perused the Records, and finds that, Homage once done for Land held of the King, the Party is to do Homage no more; but as touching Homage done at a Coronation, he finds no Allowance, for these Three Hundred Years, for Discharge of Respect of Homage afterwards. He finds also that the Homage once done is to be certified out of the Chancery into the Exchequer; and that he finds no Certificate of any Coronation Homage: That he sent to the Heralds for a Copy of the said Homage, which he read; wherein he noted that there is no Word for any Land held of the King, as is required by Law."
Re-committed to the Committee for Privileges; and the Lord Archbishop of Cant. promised to shew the Lords a true Copy of the Homage done by the Lords at the Coronation.
