E. of Kent's Bill.
The Earl of Bridgwater reported, "That the Committee have considered the Bill for settling the Lands
of the Earl of Kent; and have thought it fit to pass,
with some Alterations and Additions, which are offered to the Consideration of this House."
The said Alterations and Additions, being read Twice,
were Agreed to, and the Bill ordered to be engrossed

Judges Report concerning Newport's Bill.
The Lord Chief Justice of England reported, "That
his Lordship and as many of the Judges as were in
Health, and able to go abroad, have met, in Pursuance of the Order of this House, and taken into
serious Consideration the Bill referred unto them,
to enable John Newport to enter into certain Messuages in Westm.; and they are of Opinion, That, by
Force of the Act of Judicial Proceedings, the Fine
and Non-claim mentioned in the said Bill is a Bar to
the Right of the said John Newport; and that the
Proviso in the said Act of Judicial Proceedings doth
not aid the said John Newport against this Fine and
Non-claim; and therefore the Bill exhibited by the
said John Newport is, in Consequence, contrary to
the Act of Judicial Proceedings:"
Hereupon the House ORDERED, That the Committee do report to this House the said Bill, as it is, Tomorrow Morning.
This Day Counsel on both Sides were heard at this
Bar, concerning the Matter of Title relating to the
River of Wye only, mentioned in the Bill for making
Rivers navigable in the Counties of Surrey, Sussex, and
Langham and Progers, in Error.
Upon hearing of the Counsel of Progers Defendant,
against Langham Plaintiff, in a Writ of Error depending
in this House; the Defendant in the said Writ only appearing, but the Plaintiff assigned no Errors, although
he had a Day given:
It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said Plaintiff shall
lose his Writ, and go without Day; and the Transcript
of the Record shall be remitted, that Execution may
be taken out according to the ordinary Course in Law,
the said Writ of Error notwithstanding; and further,
That the Plaintiff in the said Writ shall pay, within
Ten Days next after the Date hereof, unto the Defendant, the Sum of Ten Pounds Costs.
