I. 217. Letter from the Lord Mayor (Sir John Branche) to ……
It had been the custom of Her Majesty and Her progenitors
of ancient time, to grant to the Lord Mayor and Aldermen yearly
certain warrants for bucks, which they had in respect of the ancient
privileges granted to them to hunt in all forests, parks, and chases
within the county of Middlesex. He had directed the Common Hunt
to attend him for the warrants, and besought his good offices in the
City's behalf, for lately the warrants had been directed to distant
places, and the persons to whom they were addressed had refused to
comply with the orders when presented.
