Ibid, pp. 117-9.
Prefixing : (a) said Duchess's petition, ut supra, p. 1925, shewing that as executrix of her husband, who was executor of Henry, Earl of Arlington, she is entitled to three parts in four of the Park of Havering, co. Essex, for 22 years from 1696, under the rent of 150. per an. under a grant from the late Queen Mother's Trustees dated 1665, June 29 : the reversion is in the Crown : the said rent of 150l. is a new creation and no part of the ancient Crown rent, the premises out of which it is reserved being but lately a park and used as such.
(b) William Tailer's report thereon. The manor and park of Havering were granted 1619, Oct. 15, under the seal of the Duchy of Lancaster to Sir Henry Hobart et al. for 99 years. This term was afterwards assigned to Henry, Earl of St. Albans, et al., as trustees to Queen Henrietta Maria, who by lease dated 1662, May, granted to the Bishop of Exeter three fourths of the said park for 21 years, the other fourth being assigned to the Earl of Lindsey for his claim of the inheritance of the keepership of the park, and a reversion of 13 years therein was granted 1663 to Eliz. Gawden, relict of said Bishop. By indenture of 1665, June 29. the Queen Mother's Trustees (under a warrant of Charles II) granted the remainder of said 99 years' term to Henry, Earl of Arlington, at 150l. per an. rent. Hereof there are 25 years in being at Lady day next. The premises are in jointure to the Queen Dowager. By an entry in the book of sales made by the Parliament in 1650 the whole park was then valued at 350l. per an. over and above the reprise for the Earl of Lindsey's keepership. The same entry mentions a lease in 1626, June 30, by Charles I to the Countess of Oxford of the herbage and pannage for 31 years. The premises were inserted in the Queen Dowager's jointure at the value of the 150l. reserve rent only. They are now disparked and the present tenant hath much impaired the land by frequent ploughing : yet the three fourth parts now desired are acknowledged to be worth 400l. per an. At that rate the reversion desired may be worth 1,750l., being seven years' purchase of the 150l. per an. If conveyed as desired by petitioner it is worth 13 years' purchase or 3,700l.
