Sir John Bennet's Appearance excused, because of his Sickness.
IT being signified unto the House, That Sir John
Bennett the Elder is so sick, that he cannot, without
great Danger of his Life, make his personal Appearance
here this Day (as might appear by the Affidavit of Simon
Baskervile, a Doctor of Physic);
It is Agreed, That the said Sir John Bennett shall stand
upon his Bail for his Appearance, but not to incur any
Danger, or Forfeiture, for his Not-appearance at that
Time, because of the Indisposition of his Health.
Answer to Petitions against Sir John Bennet.
It being thereupon signified unto the House by the
Lord Keeper, That many Petitions are exhibited here
every Morning against the said Sir John Bennett, which
are much called upon; it is Agreed, That, least the
Justice and Care of this House to question the said Sir
John Bennett for the same may be doubted of, Notice
shall be given to the Petitioners, that this Time is designed for greater Affairs, and too short to proceed
against him upon these Complaints; but the Lords do
Resolve, at the next Access, to proceed against him with
Earl of Holdernesse's Privilege.
Upon the Petition of George Hume, Servant to the
Earl of Holdernesse, and arrested, contrary to the Privileges of this House, by the Under-bailiffs of Westm. videlicet, (fn. *)
It is Ordered, That a Writ of Habeas corpus cum
causa be awarded, and directed to the Bailiff of Westm.
to bring in the Body of the said George Hume To-morrow Morning, at Nine of the Clock: and also, That the
Serjeant at Arms do bring before their Lordships the Bodies of, to answer their said Contempt.
Middleton and Growes discharged.
The Lord Chamberlain declared, That whereas one
Midleton, late Sheriff of the City of Canterbury, and
Growes, the Town Clerk of the said City, were, by Order
of the 10th of this December, to appear here, to answer
their Contempt, in the Arrest of Sir James Hales, Knight,
Servant to the Right Honourable the Earl of Essex;
that they have submitted themselves unto the said Earl,
who is an earnest Suitor unto the House, that they may
be no further troubled for their said Contempt, but to
be thereof dismissed; whereunto the House Agreed.
Earl of Oxford's Privilege.
Thomas Cole's Goods arrested.
Peter Birde, late Under-sheriff of Gloucestershire,
brought to the Bar for executing of a Writ of Elegit
upon the Goods and Lands of Thomas Cole, Servant to
the Right Honourable the Earl of Oxon.
The Prisoner being withdrawn, there sell a Doubt
amongst the Lords, whether the Privileges of Parliament
do extend to the Immunity of the Lands and Goods,
as well as of the Person, of a Nobleman's Servant; it is
Agreed, That the Sub-committee of Privileges, &c.
shall consider thereof; and also, whether the Petitioner
Thomas Cole shall bear the Charges of the said Undersheriff, if the Privileges of Parliament shall not extend
so far as to the Lands and Goods of a Lord's Servant.
Whether a Peer shall answer upon Oath, or Honour.
The Lords were put in Mind of the Order on Saturday last, That, on this Day, the whole House (as a
Committee) shall consider, whether a Nobleman shall
answer upon his Oath or no; but, for that the Book of
Collections of the Precedents of the Privileges was not
in Readiness, the same was deferred till Wednesday next,
it being first put to the Question.
It was also Ordered, that all the Lords be here on
Wednesday next, at Nine in the Morning, that then there
may be a full House, to discuss the Matter of Oath to be
taken by the Nobility, which is appointed to be handled
The Lords Committees on the Bill concerning Concealments are to meet on Wednesday next, at Two in
the Afternoon, in the Painted Chamber.
