Order for Mr. Hampson to make up Rolls in the Statute Office.
Whereas the House was this Day informed, "That,
by Act of Parliament of 23 H. VIII. the Clerk of
the Statutes was enjoined to make Two several Rolls
indented, of all Recognizances acknowledged by that
Act, One to remain with the Chief Justice or Mayor
of the Staple and Recorder, the other to remain with
the Clerk of that Office, for Public Use; and Sir
Thomas Hampson deceased, late Clerk of that Office
for the Years 1634, 1635, 1636, 1637, 1638, 1639,
and 1640, made up no Rolls, only Entries of Statutes
in Books, so that nothing appears in the Office of
the Statutes in those Years: And whereas Rob't
Hampson, Son and Executor of the said Sir Thomas,
doth detain the said Books, and hath not made up
the said Rolls for the said Years according to the
Statute in that Behalf made, and also refuseth to deliver the said Books into the Office, whereby the present Officer might make up the said Rolls:"
It is ORDERED, That the said Robert Hampson shall
make up the Rolls out of the said Books, thus kept out
of that Office, within One Month after the Date of
this Order, and return them into the Statute-office for
Public Use, or otherwise deliver the Books abovementioned into the said Office within the said Time prefixed; both which Things if he shall neglect to do,
their Lordships cannot but look upon it as a high Contempt to this House, which he must give an Account of
Order for releasing Lovelace, to attend his Cause in this House.
Upon Report made this Day in the House, "That
Francis Lovelace, having a Petition now depending
before the Lords Committees for Petitions, is maliciously arrested, and kept in Custody, upon a pretended Action, on Purpose that he might not attend and
follow his Business; which is contrary to the Privileges of Parliament:"
It is ORDERED, That the said Francis Lovelace
be forthwith released and set at Liberty out of the
Custody of John Hill Serjeant, that thereby he may
be enabled to attend their Lordships in the Prosecution of his Cause now depending before them: And
hereto all whom it may any Ways concern are to yield
their Obedience, as they will answer the contrary to
Towns of Leostoff and Yarmouth, about a Fishery.
Upon hearing the Counsel this Day at the Bar, between the Inhabitants of the Town of Lowestofte, in
the County of Suffolke, Plaintiffs, and the Bailiffs of
the Town of Great Yarmouth, in the County of Norff.
in Behalf of themselves and that Corporation, Defendants,
concerning the Right of Fishing, whereunto both Parties make Claim by their Petitions:
It is ORDERED, That it is hereby referred to the
Judges, to consider whether the Statute of 31 E. III.
Cap. 1° et 2°, be repealed by the Statute of 11 R. II.
Cap. 7. or by any other Statute; and that the Counsel
on both Sides do attend the Judges in this Cause at such
Time as they shall appoint, who are afterwards to deliver their Opinions herein unto this House, as soon as
conveniently they may; and lastly, that Witnesses on
both Sides shall be sworn, and examined at this Bar on
Thursday next, the 27th of this Instant June, touching
the Matter of Fact, whereof the Parties are to have
Notice, who are then to come provided accordingly.
Aylworth versus Evett, in Error.
Whereas Henry Evett, Defendant in a Writ of Error
depending in this House, brought in by Richard Ayleworth Esquire Plaintiff the last Parliament, hath not
prosecuted at all in the said Writ, nor assigned Errors,
although he hath had Twenty Days given him, by an
Order of this House, dated the 25th of May last:
It is ORDERED, That the Transcript of the Record
shall be remitted, and the said Evett left to take his
ordinary Course in Law, notwithstanding the said Writ
of Error. And hereof those whom it may concern are
to take Notice, and yield Obedience accordingly.
