Sir Al. Zouch versus Redingfield.
Upon the Report of the Earl of Dorsett, made this Day
from the Committee of Petitions, upon the Petition of
Sir Allan Zouch and Dame Katherine his Wife, Plaintiffs, against Anne Bedingfeild Defendant, concerning a
Decree in Chancery, which the Committee thought
worthy of the Consideration of this House:
It is ORDERED, That both Parties shall be heard,
at this Bar, by their Counsel and Witnesses, on Wednesday the Third Day of June next, at Ten of the Clock in
the Morning; at which Time the Parties concerned are
to attend the said Hearing accordingly.
Cooke & al. in Custody for arresting Chamberlen L. Holles's Serv. released.
The House resuming the Consideration of the Petition
of George Cooke, Danyell Higgeson, John Kempe, John
Kendall, and Hugh Whight, presented to this House on
Monday last, wherein they express their hearty Sorrow
for their Offences committed against the Honour of
this House, the Breach of the Privilege of Parliament,
and in particular the Injury done to the Lord Holles, in
arresting his menial Servant, and speaking unfitting
Words of his Lordship; their Lordships were considering what further exemplary Punishment to inflict
upon the said Offenders.
But upon the earnest Desire and Mediation of the
Lord Holles, acquainting the House, "That the said
Delinquents had been with, and sent often to, his
Lordship, and have submitted themselves to him, and
that the Bonds and Judgement unduly obtained from
his Servant were delivered up;" the House inclined to
shew them Mercy.
The said Cooke, Kendall, Higgeson, Kempe, and Whight,
were hereupon brought to this Bar; and the Lord
Chancellor, by the Direction of the House, told them,
"That this House was resolved to have inflicted severe
Punishment upon them, for their high Contempt to
the Honour and Dignity of this House, and their
Breach of the Privileges of Parliament, in arresting
the menial Servant of the Lord Holles; but, upon his
Lordship's earnest Desire and Mediation on their
Behalf, the Lords have shewed this Mercy, as to
remit unto them any further Punishment for their
said Offences; with this Admonition, That they
should be more careful for the future, not to do or
speak any Thing against the Honour of this House,
or any Member thereof, and not to break the Privileges of Parliament."
Which they promising to perform, they were released
of their present Restraint, and any further Trouble concerning this Business.
Just. Twisden to attend the Committee for Petitions.
ORDERED, That Mr. Justice Twisden have Notice to
