[1601] (Before Sept. 26.)Complains that Jevan Lloid Jeffrey, by colour of a grant from the Master of the Wards, to find an office after the death of David Morgan, of Crogen, Merioneth, without finding any office forcibly with 12 others, armed with petronels and pistols, entered a church where Morgan's son was at school, and contrary to his and his master's will took him thence, drawing blood of him in setting him on horseback; and notwithstanding hue and cry made after him carried him 24 miles, discharging their pistols often by the way, until stayed by the country, and the child kept at the house of a justice. Prays delivery of the child and redress of the abuses.
Note, signed by Sir R. Cecil, that petitioner is to have a supersedeas to discharge the commission sued by Jeffery, and a new commission granted.—Undated.
