Upon the Affidavit of Benjamine Rolt Gentleman,
made this Day before the Lords in Parliament, "That
an Order of this House, dated the 28° Apr. 1662,
concerning the Revenue of Her Majesty the Queen
Mother, in the Soke or Lordship of Som'sham, in
the County of Huntington, hath been disobeyed by several riotous Persons in those Parts; whereof this
House is very sensible:"
It is therefore ORDERED, &c. That the Sheriff of
the said County of Huntington, and all the Justices and
other His Majesty's Officers inhabiting any Thing near
the Premises, shall take special Care to have the said
Order obeyed in all Points, which hereby is renewed
in Terminis, (videlicet,)
"Whereas the House was this Day informed, That,
by virtue of a Commission from the Queen, His Majesty's Mother that now is, there hath been an Improvement made by Her Commissioners, to Her Majesty's
Use, within the Soke or Lordship of Som'sham, in the
County of Huntington, of One Thousand One Hundred Twenty and Five Acres, or thereabouts, divided
from the rest of the Wastes belonging to the said
Soke or Lordship aforesaid; and that the same were
in the Year One Thousand Six Hundred Thirtyfive inclosed, upon Improvement, by Sir Thomas Hatton Knight, Her said Majesty's Surveyor General, and
settled by Decree; and then the said Lands were, by
several Grants under the Great Seal of England, and
under the Seal belonging to the said Queen, settled
upon several Persons, with a Reservation of a certain
Yearly Rent to Their Majesties, Their Heirs and Successors, which Lands were quietly possessed till the
late unhappy Wars, and then the Inclosures were in
a tumultuous Manner thrown down and laid open,
which being made up again, have been lately, by
some Persons, in a disorderly Manner, in the Night
Time, thrown down again: It is therefore ORDERED,
&c. That the Sheriff of the County of Huntington and
the several Justices of the Peace next adjoining to the
said Lands shall take special Care to prevent the
throwing down the Fences, Ditches, or Mounds, of or
belonging to the Premises within the Soke or Lordship aforesaid, and to prevent all Riots, Routs, and
unlawful Assemblies, that shall be had or made in or
upon the said Lands or any of them, and in such Case
of Disturbance to proceed against the Offenders according to the Laws of the Land; and hereof all Persons are to take Notice, and yield Obedience hereunto,
as they will answer the contrary to this House."
