Oaths of Supremacy and Allegiance before Nat. Bill pass.

BEFORE the House was set, Dr. Younge, Dean of Winchester, and Philip Jacobson (who have exhibited their Bills of Naturalization), did, kneeling in the House, take the Oaths of Supremacy and Allegiance; the which Oaths were ministred by the Lord Chief Justice, as he supplies the Place of the Lord Chancellor.

Lords Leave of Absence.

Lord Chamberlain,
Earl of Dorsett,
Excused for Absence.

Broade.

Richard Phelce and Thomas Blackley (the Two Serjeants that arrested Francis Broad, contrary to the Privileges of this House) were brought to the Bar (according to the Order this Morning) and made their humble Submission, and were thereupon discharged, paying their Fees.

Sir Francis Michell.

The Offences wherewith Sir Francis Michell is charged, 26 April, 1621, being read, the House was adjourned ad libitum.

Mr. Serjeant Crew having opened the Charge, and the Proofs (which were read by the Clerk), the House was resumed again.

It was put to the Question, Whether Sir Francis Michell be so guilty of the Offences, or any of them, charged upon him, that is worthy to be censured.

Agreed unto, per omnes.

The Lords, being agreed of the Sentence upon Sir Francis Michell, sent a Message unto the House of Commons:

Message to the Commons to demand Judgment against Sir Francis Michell.

That the Lords have proceeded against Sir Francis Michell, upon Complaint of the Commons; they have found him guilty of many exorbitant Offences, and are ready to give Judgment against him, if they, with their Speaker, will come to demand it.

Answered,

They will come accordingly, with all convenient Speed.

In the mean Time, the Lords put on their Robes.

The Commons being come, and the Speaker at the Bar, after low Obeisances, he said:

"There was heretofore related unto their Lordships, by the House of Commons, a Complaint of many Grievances against Mompesson and Sir Francis Michell, for many Offences committed by them against the King and the Commonwealth; your Lordships have proceeded with Mompesson, and given Judgment against him. Understanding that you are ready to pronounce Judgment also against Sir Francis Michell, I the Speaker, in the Name of the Knights, Citizens, and Burgesses of the Commons House of Parliament, do demand and pray, that Judgment be given against him the said Sir Francis Michell, according to his Demerits."

The Lord Chief Justice pronounced the Judgment, in hæc verba: "Mr. Speaker, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal have taken into due Consideration the great Care and Pains taken by the Commons to inform their Lordships of the great Complaints, and the Qualities and Natures thereof, presented unto them against Sir Francis Michell and others, whereof their Lordships being well prepared by them, to the true understanding of the same, and thereupon having proceeded for the perfect Discovery thereof, by Examination of divers Witnesses upon Oath, do find thereby, the said Sir Francis Michell clearly guilty of many great Crimes and Offences against His Majesty and the Common-wealth, and have Resolved, at this Time, to proceed to Judgment against him for the same.

"And therefore the Lords Spiritual and Temporal of this great and High Court of Parliament do award and adjudge:

Judgment against Sir Francis Michell.

1. That the said Sir Frauncis Michell shall stand, and be from henceforth, degraded of the Order of Knighthood, with Reservation of the Dignity of his now Wife and Children; and the Ceremonies of Degradation to be performed by Direction of this Court to the Earl Marshal's Court.

2. That he shall be imprisoned, during the King's Pleasure, in Finsbury Gaol, in the same Chamber there, where he provided for others; The Tower, where he now remains, being a Prison too worthy of him.

"3. That he shall undergo the Fine of a Thousand Pounds.

"4. That he shall be disabled to hold or receive any Office under the King, or for the Common-wealth."

Whereas Mr. Baron Denham, by the Order of the Second of this May, is appointed to attend the Lords Committees, to take the Examinations in the Cause of Sir John Bennett, it is now Ordered, That his Attendance be spared; and Mr. Justice Wynch and Mr. Justice Chamberlain do attend in his Place.

And it is further Ordered, That the Lords Committees, appointed to take the Examinations in the said Cause, do meet To-morrow Morning, near the Parliament Presence, and then to agree how and where to proceed to take the said Examinations.

Adjourn.
