Wife unto John Lord Viscount Purbecke, was, within
the Times of Privilege of Parliament, Anno 22° Jacobi
Regis, et Anno 1° Caroli Regis, summoned to appear
before the High Commission, where she claimed her Privilege both Times, and it was denied her; and that they
proceeded against her, and have examined, since the
Summons of this Parliament.
The which Petition being considered of divers and
several Days by the Lords Committees for Privileges,
etc. it was this Day reported to the House by the Lord
President, That the said Committee were of Opinion,
that, as this particular Case appeared unto them, with
all the Circumstances, the said Lady Purbeck was not to
have Privilege against her Husband.
Which being reported, and by some Lords objected
against, the House, having well considered hereof, Resolved and Ordered, upon the Question, That she the
said Lady Viscountess Purbeck, in this particular Case,
should not be allowed Privilege against her Husband.
Yet nevertheless the House thought fit, and so Ordered, That the said Lady Viscountess Purbeck, for and
during the Term of Twenty Days from and after this
29th Day of April 1628, shall go and be free from any
Arrest, Restraint, or Molestation.

eodem Anno; and whereas Mountjoy Blount was created

created after the 20th Day of May then last past;
whereof Complaint was made to this House 26 April,
and the Consideration thereof referred to the Lords
Committees for Privileges;
The Lord President did this Day report to the House,
That the said Committee had considered thereof; and
that they are of Opinion, That, according to the Statute of 31 H. VIII, and according to a former Judgement of this House this Parliament (10 Aprilis), in the
like Case of Precedency granted to the Earl of Banbury,
that the said Baron Fawconbridge and the said Baron

bound from Newfoundland, in a Ship of Mortague,
called The Golden Lyon, loaden with Fish, and intending to go to Rocchell to unlade the same, he was, on the
10th of September last, surprised and taken by Captain Gyles, commanding in a Man of War called The
Neptune, belonging to the Earl of Warwicke: That,
upon his Petition to the Council Table, it pleased
the Lords of His Majesty's Privy Council to refer
the Petitioner to the Court of Admiralty; requiring
the Judge, that, in Case he could prove the said Ship
and Goods to be Protestants Goods, then the said
Ship and Goods should be discharged; but the said
Earl of Warwicke doth claim the Privilege of Parliament, whereby the Petitioner is deferred, and the
said Goods are like to perish; whereof he desireth
this House to take Consideration."
This Petition being read; their Lordships referred
the same to the Committee for Petitions.
