EARL of Herteford,
|Earl of Monmouth,
|Lord Bishop of London,
|Lord Bishop of Ely.
|Lord Bishop of Asaphen,
A Message sent to the Commons, by
Mr. Justice Yelverton, and
Mr. Serjeant Crewe:
Committee for Defence and Safety of the Kingdom.
That their Lordships did heretofore desire a Meeting,
by Committees of both Houses, about Matters of great
Importance, for Defence of the Land; and they met
accordingly; and divers Things were offered unto the
Consideration of the House of Commons, for their Advices therein; but as yet no Answer hath been returned. And now the Importancy of the Service, and Slipping-away of the Time, do occasion their Lordships to
desire the same.
They will return Answer, by Messengers of their
Hospitals and Free-schools.
The Lord President reported the Bill for Confirmation
of Hospitals and Free-schools fit to pass, with one
Which was read 1a et 2a
vice, and the Bill Ordered
to be ingrossed accordingly.
Increase of Trade, and prohibiting the Exportation of Gold and Silver.
His Lordship also reported the Bill for Increase of
Trade fit to pass, with some Amendments; but all that
Part of that Bill which concerns the keeping of Silver
and Gold within the Realm fit to be taken away.
Which Amendments were read 1a et 2a
the Bill Ordered to be ingrossed accordingly.
The Reference of the Lord Bishop of Lincoln's Answer
was thus reported by the Earl of Bridgewater, one of
the Committee for Petitions: videlicet,
Reference of the Bishop of Lincoln's Answer to Pinckney's Complaint.
The Lords Committees for Petitions, having considered the Lord Bishop of Lincoln's Answer, do conceive
these Two Defects therein: First, in that his Lordship
doth not clearly acknowledge his Contempt to the House,
in neglecting to follow their Direction, and thereby disobeying their Order. Secondly, in that his Lordship lays
an Aspersion upon the Lords Sub-committees appointed to
peruse the Journal Book, in justifying that the Order in
his Answer mentioned will not be warranted by the
Clerk's Book, but was drawn up contrary to the Intention of the House; although he saw it justified under
the Hands of Six of the said Sub-committee, to be truly entered by the Clerk; the which Sub-committee had
Authority from the House to meet after the End of the
Session (Anno 21 Jacobi), to peruse and perfect the
And that, as touching this, their Advice is, That the
said Sub-committee be cleared; and that the Lord Bishop of Lincoln shall acknowledge the Order touching
Pinckney, 28 Maii 1624, to be an Order of this
House, truly and justly entered; and that his Lordship
shall signify unto the House, that he is sorry that he did
formerly mistake the same, and thereby gave just Offence to the House, and to the Lords of the Sub-committee who had subscribed the said Order; and that he
doth acknowledge his Error, and ask their Lordships
All which was Ordered accordingly.
Pinckney's Reply reported.
And as touching the Relief of Tymothy Pinckney, the
Earl of Bridgewater further reported, That their Lordships are informed, that there rests in the Hands of
James Trussell, William Taylor, and William Tuliey, (late
Sequestrators of Barne Elmes) the Sum of Two Hundred
and Eighty nine Pounds; of which will rest clear, their
own Debts being satisfied, but Two Hundred and Twenty four Pounds; and that there rests in the Chancery,
not as yet disposed of, about One Hundred Pounds; all
which their Lordships think fit, that the Lord Keeper
take into his Consideration, whether, out of these, or
any Thing else that shall appear unto his Lordship, any
Relief may in Justice and Equity be afforded unto the
said Petitioner Pinckney; and afterwards, Pinckney being satisfied, to consider what Satisfaction may be given unto
Sir William Paddy, for a Debt owing unto him by Sir
John Kennedey, deceased.
Which was also Ordered accordingly.
A Message from the Commons, by Mr. Secretary
Cooke and others:
Message from the H. C. touching the Safety and Defence of the Kingdom.
That they had received their Lordships Message this
Morning, for Answer unto certain Things which were offered to be advised upon by a Committee of both Houses;
which also had been formerly reported to their House,
That the Commons do intend to hold all good Correspondency with the Lords, and will decline all Things that
may tend to the contrary; and they do assure their
Lordships, that they will be ever careful of the Safety
and Defence of the Realm; maintaining their own Privileges, as is sitting.
Hereupon the House was moved, That the Lords Committees for Defence of the Realm, &c. might meet presently, and proceed. Which their Lordships did accordingly.
Releigh's Restitution in Blood.
This Day the Lord Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Dodderidge, and Mr. Justice Yelverton, reported to the House,
That they had, according to the Order made Yesterday,
upon the Earl of Bristoll's Petition, considered of Carewe Raleigh's Bill for Restitution in Blood; which they
find to be general; and also of the Proviso added
thereunto for Sherborne, which they find to (fn. *) be particular; and it is good and available in Law unto the
said Earl of Bristoll, according to the Words thereof;
and that the said Proviso is an Act of itself.
vice lecta est Billa prædicta, for Restitution
in Blood of Carew Raleigh.
Put to the Question, and generally Assented unto.
And sent down to the Commons, by
Mr. Attorney General, and
Mr. Serjeant Crew.
E. of Nottingham's Bill.
The Lord Chamberlain reported, That the Lords
Committees on the Bill exhibited by the Earl of Nottingham, for reversing of a Decree in the Court of
Wards, &c. think it fit that the said Bill shall sleep.
The Lord President reported, That the Lords Committees for Petitions have conceived an Order, upon Petition exhibited unto this House by Sir Edward Waterhowse, against Sir Arthure Ingram, which was read in
hæc verba: videlicet,
"Whereas Sir Edward Waterhowse, Knight, hath
exhibited a Petition in Parliament against Sir Arthure
Ingram, Knight, for the reviving of his Complaint
comprized in a former Petition of the said Sir Edward
Waterhowse against the said Sir Arthure, and by him
answered, but remaining undetermined, the last Parliament of our late Sovereign Lord King James; and
whereas, upon the Hearing thereof before the Lords
Committees for Petitions, upon Thursday the Second
of this Instant March, after divers very just and reasonable Offers and Propositions made to the said Sir
Edward by the said Sir Arthure, and refused by the
said Sir Edward, he the said Sir Edward Waterhowse
denied a Release, bearing Date 24 Maii, 9 Jacobi,
then produced by the said Sir Arthure, in Bar of
the Sums of Money demanded by him the said Sir Edward, to be his the said Sir Edward Waterhouse's
Deed, or that the Name of the said Sir Edward, subscribed to the said Release, was his the said Sir Edward's Hand-writing; and offered, that, if the said
Sir Arthure could prove the same Release, then he
would be satisfied, and forbear any further Suit against the said Sir Arthure; which Offer the said Sir
Arthure accepted; and thereupon, by Consent of
both the said Parties, it was Ordered by their
Lordships, That the said Sir Arthure Ingram should
produce his Proofs of the said Release before them;
and that, if he should prove the same Release to the
Satisfaction of their Lordships, that then the said Sir
Edward should (according to his said Offer) rest satisfied, and forbear the further Prosecution of any Suit
against the said Sir Arthure Ingram; and that, in Default of such Proof, the said Sir Arthure Ingram should
pay the said Sir Edward Waterhowse, the full Sum of
Seventeen Hundred Pounds: Now, forasmuch that
the said Sir Arthure hath produced his Proofs of the
said Release, and thereby given full Satisfaction to
their Lordships of the Truth and Validity of the said
Release; it is Ordered, That the said Sir Edward
Waterhowse shall rest satisfied, and not any further
prosecute any Suit against the said Sir Arthure Ingram, according to his own Consent and Agreement."
And also the said Sir Arthure Ingram was cleared by
the House, of all Aspersions that any way might reflect
upon him by the Complaint of the said Sir Edward Waterhowse.
