May 1607

The Earl of Cumberland.
[Before May 25, 1607].The Earl has petitioned the King to be allowed to compound on reasonable terms for such manors, castles, etc, to which the King has a claim on the grounds of certain imperfections in the grants made to the Earl's ancestors, or of which he has the remainder. In conformity with the King's desire to confirm such lands to those already in possession of them on conditions considered reasonable by commissioners appointed for that purpose, particularly where noble families are concerned, the Attorney-General is requested to establish all relevant facts and to draw up the necessary document for the royal signature, whereby the Earl of Cumberland may have a grant and confirmation of all pertinent rights and titles.—Undated.
Draft. Endorsed: "A warrant for Master Atturney." 1¼ pp. (197. 65.)
