Juratus in causa Johannis Bennett, Militis:
Sir James Cunningham's Petition concerning the Greenland Fishery.
The Petition of Sir James Cunningham, was read;
wherein he shewed, that the King's Majesty having
granted unto him, under the Great Seal of Scotland
(amongst other Things), the Fishing of Whale at Greeneland, for which he had prepared and victualed many
Ships, His Majesty was afterwards pleased, at the Suit
of the Muscovia Company in England, to call in the said
Grant, touching the said Fishing, because it was pretended
to be prejudicial to the State of that Trade; nevertheless
His Majesty appointed divers Lords of His Honourable
Privy Council here in England, to accommodate the
Differences between the Petitioner and the said Company; and that now the said Company refused to pay him
such Sums of Money, which their Lordships did think
fit, and set down to be paid unto him, for his Losses
in the Provisions made for that Voyage, and which Losses
were referred, by Consent of Sir Thomas Smith, Knight,
Governor of that Company, unto Sir Robert Napper,
Knight and Baronet, Sir Allen Appesley, Knight, Lieutenant of The Tower, and Sir Marmaduke Dorrell, Knight,
Cofferer of His Majesty's Household; and by them certified to their Lordships.
Which Petition being read, the Court referred the
Consideration thereof unto the Earl of Warwick, the
Lord Bishop of Winchester, the Lord Scroope, and the
Lord Darce. And their Lordships are to meet Tomorrow, at One of the Clock in the Afternoon, in the
Painted Chamber, to consider thereof; and to call before them the said Sir Thomas Smith, or some other of
the said Muscovia Company.
