Egerton's Petition.

THE Petition of Edward Egerton was read, whereby he humbly desired, Sir Rowland Egerton to be ordered forthwith to produce upon Oath certain Indentures and Writings, unduly gotten from the Petitioner.

Ordered, ex Motione Domini Sheffeild, this Petition to remain with the Clerk, until the Corruption and Bribery complained of be determined; and then the Lords will take it into their Consideration.

Gold and Silver Thread.

The Earl of Arundell shewed, that the Lords Committees to examine the Grievances being ordered to examine none to accuse themselves, they had taken only the Declaration of Thomas Norton, Gervase Unwoon, and Anthony Berrie, touching the Patentees of Gold and Silver Thread; his Lordship moved, That the said Persons may be sworn, and examined touching Sir Gyles Mompesson only, which was generally agreed unto.

In causa Gold and Silver Thread:

Thomas Norton,
Gervase Unwoone,
Anthony Berry,
Were sworn.

Lord Chancellor.

In causa Domini Cancellarii;

Sir Ralph Hansby, Knight, sworn.

The Earl of South'ton shewed, that the said Sir Ralph Hansby, being examined by his Lordship and others of a Bribe of Five Hundred Pounds, given by himself to the Lord Chancellor, that the said Sir Ralph made a Doubt whether his Answer thereunto might not be prejudicial to his Cause. Wherefore their Lordships Resolution herein was required; whether the said Sir Ralph should be urged to make his Answer hereunto or no.

After long Debate of this Matter, it was Ordered, That the Examinations taken in this Court should not be hereafter used in any other Cause, nor in any other Court.

And although divers of the Lords were of Opinion, that the Parties Confession of the giving of a Bribe could not be prejudicial at all unto him; yet divers doubted thereof.

Whereupon it was put to the Question, whether the said Sir Ralph shall be examined what Gift or Reward he hath given to the Lord Chancellor; it was Agreed, he should be examined thereupon.

Report concerning Precedents.

The Lords Committees appointed Yesterday to search for Precedents, videlicet, the Earl of Huntingdon, the Earl of Warwick, and the Lord Haughton, returned from The Tower.

The Earl of Huntingdon made Report of their Search and View of the Records; and the Earl of Warwick read the Heads of the Precedents, and then delivered the Notes taken out of the Records, and signed by the Officer, unto the Clerk, to be kept.

The Collections of Sir Gyles Mompesson's Offences touching Inns and Hosteries, and the Proofs thereof, were read; and the Patents and Commissions concerning the same were read also.

Adjourn.

Dominus Capitalis Justiciarius, Locum tenens Domini Cancellarii, declaravit præsens Parliamentum continuandum esse usque in diem Lunæ, videlicet, 26m diem Martii, Dominis sic decernentibus.
