(conditioned to pay 1,175l. on 24 June, 1668, at which date his farm determined) : that the great sickness and the first Dutch war lessened the value of said farm so much that he did not raise the rent of 4,700l. reserved on said farm, but lost thereon and moreover lost about 6,000l. in arrears, which were uncollected by him when his farm was let to others ; wherefore he petitioned Charles II for an abatement and was promised same : but from his papers it appears that the whole farm rent due 1668, June 24, was paid, except only 1,372l. 9s. 0d. or thereabouts, which remains due to the King, and also 140l. received by him [petitioner's father] for Customs in Sunderland during the suspension of the collector there : that petitioner's said father is dead, leaving a small personal and no real estate and that much encumbered and a widow and four children unprovided for : therefore prays a grant of said debts with liberty to sue in the King's name for recovery of same : all in view of the loyalty of said father, as also of petitioner himself, which is attested by Capt.

King's Warrant Book XV, pp. 23-4.
Same to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of a close called the Marsh Lands in St. Giles's, co. Midd., with a view to a lease thereof to Thomas Neale, in reversion of the lease to Sir Richard Stydolph, which determines 1731-2, Mar. 12 : at the old rent of 3l. per an. and increased rent of 97l. per an. and fine of 100l.
Prefixing : (a) said Neale's petition (as referred from the King to the Treasury Lords Jan. 1 [? ult.] and by said Lords to Mr. Harbord Jan. 14) : petitioner shewing that said close was granted 1601-2, Mar. 12, to Nich. Morgan and Thomas Horne for 60 years in reversion of three lives, which ended 1655-6, Mar. 12 ; that on 30 Aug., 1672, Charles II granted to Sir Richard Styddolf, kt. and bart. (in whom said lease to Morgan became vested by several mesne assignments), a 16 years' extension of the existing term ; therefore praying a reversion for 18 years, which will fill up the existing term again to 60 years. (b) Report thereon by William Harbord, Surveyor General of Crown Lands. The grant of Aug., 1672, was without fine as an encouragement to Styddolfe to erect some new buildings on the premises, there being then only some very small old houses standing thereon, some of two and others but of one clear story under the roof, in respect whereof the reversion [to the Crown] was esteemed of very little value. This piece of ground has been leased by Sir Richard Stydolfe to one James Kendrick for 31 years from 1660, Sept. 29, with other lands adjoining of about 10l. per an. value, at 40l. per an. rent and 180l. fine, by which it seems the premises were then esteemed worth 50l. per an., and I am informed that the small houses now standing thereon and built by said Kendrick (though most of them are ruinous and must be rebuilt) have raised the present value thereof to near 100l. per an. Petitioner claims no interest in the existing term.
