Message from the Commons, about Sir Gyles Mompesson.
A MESSAGE from the Lower House, delivered
by Sir Edward Cooke, with divers Knights, Citizens,
That the House of Commons had entered into a due
Consideration of divers heavy Grievances; and, about
that Matter, they desired a Conference with their Lordships, leaving the Time, Number, and Place, to their
Lordships Appointment: He further added, as Part
of that which was enjoined him to say, That, whilst
that House was thus amongst themselves in Treaty and
Advice, the principal Offender, Sir Gyles Mompesson, is
escaped; wherefore that House did desire a straight
Scrutiny for finding him out within the Realm.
And, if their Lordships should grant this Conference,
the Lower House would prepare themselves for the
Whereupon, after the said Messengers had withdrawn themselves, and the Lords a while advised of
the Matter, Answer was returned, by the same Messengers,
The Lords Answer.
That the Lords are willing and do yield to such
Conference as is desired; the Number to be the whole
House; the Time and Place on Monday next, at Two
of the Clock in the Afternoon, in the Painted Chamber.
And that, for the finding out and apprehending of
the Offender, their Lordships will add their best Aid
and Assistance; whereupon Sir Edward Coke, by way
of Explanation of his former Words in Delivery of the
said Message, declared, that the House of Commons
is not yet fully provided and ripe for such Conference;
but his Meaning was, that, if their Lordships should be
pleased to yield thereunto, then that House would prepare the Business so as it might give least Interruption
to their Lordships greater Affairs; which when they
had done, they would attend their Lordships, to understand their Pleasure touching Time, Place, and
Number of Committees, for such Conference; whereunto was answered by the Lord Chancellor, That this
House doth not, by their said former Answer, define
on the Time to be on Monday; but are well contented
to respite the same until they hear again from the Lower
House; with this, That, if the Commons shall not be
ready for Monday, their Lordships do then expect to
hear further from them.
Sir Gyles Mompesson.
After divers Propositions for the apprehending of
this great Offender, Sir Gyles Mompesson, Message was
sent to the Lower House, by the Lord Chief Baron
and Mr. Baron Denham, That, according to their Desire,
the Lords have considered of the Means for Apprehension of this great Offender; and, for that Purpose,
will appoint Committees, to the Number of Forty,
presently to confer with a competent Number of Committees of that House, touching that Point, in the
Which Committees were agreed to be:

signify unto his Lordship the Order and Direction of
the House, That his Lordship do speedily give Warrant
into the Cinque Ports, for Search to be made for the
Person of Sir Gyles Mompesson, and his Apprehension,
if he may be there found, and for Stay of him hereafter,

Agreed, That the Lords Committees last abovementioned shall attend the King, to satisfy His Majesty
concerning the Information lately given His Majesty,
touching the Judges forbearing to yield unto their
Lordships their Opinion, in Matter proposed and required of them by their Lordships.
The Messengers last sent to the Lower House returned; and, because they brought no Answer from
that House, they were therefore sent back again, who
afterwards returned secondly with Answer, That the
Commons will, by their Committees, meet and attend
their Lordships, as the Lords appointed.
Sir Gyles Mompesson.
Because divers Lords, whilst the Court remained
in Business, did withdraw themselves into the Painted
Chamber, before the Lords Committees were ready there
to give Meeting to the Committees of the Lower
House, touching the Business wherewith Sir Gyles
Mompesson stood charged; the Lord Hunsdon therefore
moved, That the Lords, in a careful Regard of the
Orders of this House, would be pleased to send for the
said Lords, so before-hand and unseasonably gone forth
as aforesaid; and the said Lords here to abide untill the
whole Committee aforesaid were ready, and pleased to
go forth together for that Service. Which Motion
was by general Assent allowed, and Order given accordingly.

their Proceeding in that Business, with their Opinion
touching the same.

The Prince his Highness, and other Committees
for Conference with the Committees of the Lower
House, touching Search and Apprehension of Sir Gyles
Mompesson, being returned, the Lord Chancellor reported, That the Lords Committees of this House
had declared unto the Committees of the other House,
how willing the Lords were to aid and further the
Search for Sir Gyles Mompesson, and his Apprehension.
For effecting whereof, their Lordships held a Proclamation the swiftest Messenger; that the Lords had
already given Order to the Lord Zouch, being Warden
of the Cinque Ports, to take speedy and strict Course,
within the said Ports, for the Stay and Apprehension
of the said Offender, if he be now there, or shall hereafter resort thither.
That the like Direction hath, by their Lordships,
been given to the Lord Treasurer, for like Care to be
by his Means taken, by Customers, and other Officers
within the Ports, Havens, and Creeks of the Realm;
and unto the Lord Admiral, to command in like sort
all Vice Admirals, and other Maritime Officers, under
his Jurisdiction, unto whom it may appertain.
Which Honourable and Noble Purpose of the Lords,
the Committees of the Lower House took (as his
Lordship further declared) with great Alacrity and
Thanks, and further desired only a privy Search for the
The Lord Admiral declared openly, how much he
had been wronged, and abused by this Offender Sir
Gyles Mompesson, who even lately wrote to his Lordship,
protesting his Innocency, assirming, that whatsoever was
objected against him, was but Matter of Cavil; and
that he desired nothing but a legal Tryal, and to be
proceeded withal by Course of Law.

certain Lands in Surrey, heretofore made by the Right
Honourable Charles Earl of Nottingham, and William
late Lord Howard of Essingham, deceased, unto Thomas
Trevor and William Bryan, and their Heirs.
Reynolds and Wright.
The Earl of Oxford moved for the Enlargement and
Discharge forth of Prison of the Serjeant at Arms attending this Court, who lately was by the Lord Chancellor committed to the Prison of The Fleet, for that he
had not caused the Censure of this Court to have been
fully performed and executed upon Richard Reynoldes
and Robert Wright, in such sort as by the Lords, for
their great Offence, aggravated by contemptuous
Speeches against the State, Dignity, and Honour of
this High Court, was adjudged. Whereupon the said
Serjeant's humble Petition being by the Lords admitted
and allowed, Order was by the House given for his
Discharge; and by the Lords thought fit, that the said
Reynoldes and Wright, shall, on Monday next, at Ten
of the Clock in the Forenoon, undergo, do, and perform, all whatsoever was yet unperformed of the said
Censure and Judgment, so given against them as aforesaid; and accordingly it was now Ordered; and, for the
more convenient Execution hereof, the Serjeant at
Arms aforesaid is to have Warrant of Assistance, to
all Constables and other His Majesty's Officers and
Ministers, to whom it may appertain.
Sir Gyles Mompesson.

Houses, are now to be brought into the House; their
several Titles read, and such as shall be thought meet
are to have again Beginning, as new Bills; and with
them are also to be brought in, and offered to the
House, all other Bills the said last Parliament preferred, and now remaining with the Clerk.
