Date. Nature and Substance of the Entry. Reference.
Aug. 16. Treasury warrant dormant to the Customs Cashier to pay the salary of 30l. per an. to John Needler, gent., as Comptroller of the Great and Petty Customs, London port.
In the margin : a later order, dated 1690, April 2, of confirmation hereof.
Money Book X, p. 83.
William Jephson to the Navy Commissioners to report what money, stores or provisions have been received from any of the officers of the Navy by the Duke of Schomberg, or Capt. Shales or Mr. Wright for the service of the Forces designed for Ireland and what bills have been signed for same. Out Letters (General) XII, p. 80.
Same to Mr. Harbord to report on Dr. Fairclough's petition, ut supra, p. 221. Ibid.
Same to the Earl of Ranelagh to report on the petition of Robert Irving, Agent to the Royal Regiment of Foot, praying for the pay due to the second Battalion of said Regiment now in Scotland, having received no money since they went thither. Ibid, p. 81.
Treasury reference to the Customs Commissioners of the petition of Jodocus Crull for the collector's place, Colchester port. Reference Book VI, p. 81.
Same to the Master etc. of the Mint of the petition of James Ellis for renewal of his warrant as second clerk to Owen Wynne, Warden of the Mint. Ibid, p. 82.
Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular and ratal of two tenements in the manor of Bradford, parcel of the Duchy of Cornwall, with a view to a lease thereof to Michael Langdon.
Prefixing : report by W. Harbord on said Langdon's petition, ut supra, pp. 184, 198, for same. The first tenement is fallen in hand by the death of Leonard Cornew. It was valued in 1660 by Sir Richard Prideaux at 19l. per an., but his surveys are generally esteemed high. It is at present let at 15l. per an. The second tenement is held for the life of Robert Frayne under a lease dated 1662. I advise a fine of 150l. on the first tenement and 80l. on the second.
Warrants not Relating to Money XIII, pp. 70-1.
Same to same for a same of a small tenement or cottage in Cerne Abbas, co Dorset, in order to a lease thereof to William Fosse.
Prefixing : report as above on said Fosse's petition, supra, p. 190. The premises were leased 1559, July 1, to John Strickland, Hugh Strickland and Julyan Abridge, being a tenement then newly erected, and a piece of ground 24 feet by 20 feet situate near the Shambles in the market place at Cerne, and was formerly part of the monastery there. There was an alleged lease from James I to John Eldred and William Whitmore for 50 years in reversion of said Abridge, who died 1639, April 28 : so the premises came into the Crown's hands on April 28 last. The said Fosse, a butcher, alleges long possession, but sets out no title. The value of the premises is small, the fine on the last lease being only 5l. 4s. 0d.
Ibid, pp. 72-3.
Same to same for a same of a small tenement and mill in the manor of Treverbyn Courtney, the tenement lying in the village of Resuggo : with a view to a lease thereof to William Cock.
Prefixing : report as above on said Cock's petition, ut supra, p. 184. The premises were granted to John Trelawney 1661, Nov. 23. The rent has been answered in the name of Charles Trevanion and John Bovett to Michaelmas last. In Nov., 1684, the said Trevanion petitioned to buy off the increased rent, but did not proceed in it because Bovett and he could not agree to surrender. The petitioner Cock married said Bovett's daughter, whose ancestors have been ancient tenants of the premises. I advise a fine of 55l.
Ibid, pp. 73-4.
Treasury fiat for royal letters patent to constitute James Smith as customer of Chichester port during pleasure, being the office he already enjoys. Out Letters (Customs) XII, p. 49.
Aug. 17. William Jephson to the Auditor of the Receipt. The Treasury Lords are informed that great sums of the taxes are brought into the Exchequer and instead of being forthwith told and charged by the Tellers throwing down bills for same the moneys remain in the Tellers' offices some considerable time in the nature of deposits only. My Lords consider that the taking of the King's money by way of deposit is a damage to the King because his Majesty pays 7 per cent for those sums while they remain in that nature. You are to order the Tellers to forthwith, and with all possible expedition, tell and charge any money as soon as it comes in : and also that the Tellers attend not only in the afternoons, but more early in the forenoons for that purpose.
