"At the Committee of Lords and Commons for
"In the Case of Mr. Robert Harvey: Upon the Certificate and Examinations returned from the Committee of the City and County of Chester; upon the
hearing of Counsel on both Sides, it appearing to the
Committee, That the said Mr. Harvey, though he
was named Commissioner of Array for the King, yet
did never act therein; and for that it also appeared,
That, for his Not-acting, his House after Six several
Attempts was set on Fire, which, together with the
Shop and Stables adjoining, were of the Value of
Eighty Pounds per Annum, besides many Services
which he and his Wife had done to the Parliament's
Friends: Yet, in respect it is certified and confessed
by the said Mr. Harvey, That he had taken some of
the King's Oaths against the Parliament; this Committee are of Opinion; That he is within the Ordinance for Sequestrations; but, in respect of his aforesaid Sufferings and Services, do think fit and order,
That his Case be presented to the Consideration of
both Houses, as a fit Object for their Favour: And
that the Lord North be desired to report the same to
the House of Peers, and Mr. Serjeant Wylde to the
House of Commons.
"Intr. R. Vaughan."
"The Case of Mr. Robert Harvey, One of the
Aldermen of the City of Chester, drawn out
of several Depositions taken at the Committee of Chester for Sequestrations.
"That, albeit he was nominated a Commissioner of
Array, he nevertheless rejected the Temptation, and
utterly refused the Entertainment thereof; and remains altogether clear of any Affection or Action concerning the same.
"That, being called to an Election of the Mayor of
the City aforesaid, and upon the Bench amongst the
rest of the Aldermen, he was chose Mayor; which
he presently protested against, rose from the Bench,
and immediately left the Court.
"That, in Observation of this Passage, the Lord
Cholmondeleth, and Sir John Byron the Governor of
that Garrison, and many others also, exceedingly maligned him, as for sundry Speeches touching their
unlawful Proceedings against the Parliamentary Party; and especially for saying, (videlicet,) "That they
had over-mastered us;" which drew him into Suspicion of his Fidelity, and them into Malice against him
for the same.
"That they sent Six several Times to set Fire on his
House before it could be done; for which at last,
being done, one Holmes had Forty Pounds.
"That his House, together with the Shop, Stables,
and Out-houses, are of the Yearly Value of Eighty
Pounds; and his Goods, worth Two Hundred Pounds,
all burnt therein.
"That (fn. *) he privately secured the Person of one Mr.
Langley, a godly Minister, adherent to the Parliament,
together with Mr. Peter Leigh, a well-affected Citizen, much maligned by the Cavaliers (who thirsted
after their Misery), until they were conveyed thence
from the Danger of their Malice.
"That he secured the Goods of Mr. Justice Warberton, and others well-affected, until the Surrender of
Chester; and after, delivered them safe to the true
"That he contributed One Hundred Marks towards
the Payment of the State Soldiers, upon the Reducement of Chester.
"That, upon the happy Reducement of Chester, and
Inquisition made of the Affection and Disaffection of
the Aldermen, of their Service or Disservice, Cause
was found to continue him, when many were put out.
"That the Rents and Profits of his Estate were only
stayed, and not sequestered at all.
"That he and his Wife have done many good Offices
and considerable Service for the Parliament.
"All which have plainly appeared to the Right
Honourable the Committee of Lords and
Commons for Sequestrations, wherewith they
are satisfied so far, in regard of his Service
and Sufferings for the Parliament, as that,
notwithstanding he lies within the Compass of
the Ordinance for Sequestration for some
Oaths forced upon him against the Parliament, they conceive him nevertheless a sit
Object of Favour; and therefore, by their
Order of the Second of this Instant February,
have recommended his Case and Condition to
both Houses, to be reported by the Lord
North and Mr. Serjeant Wilde, for a favourable Discharge."
Rooper's Petition, for Reversal of a Decree in Chancery, made in Favour of Wiseman.
"To the Right Honourable the Lords assembled
"The humble Petition of Henry Rooper Esquire;
"That Ralphe Wiseman, Second Son of Sir Thomas
Wiseman, being Nephew to your Petitioner, about
Twenty-four Years since unhappily married with a
Servant of his Father's, far below his Rank, and had
no Portion, by which he incurred his Father's Displeasure; and thereupon prevailed with your Petitioner to enter into Articles to the said Sir Thomas
Wiseman, That, within a Month after the Death of
Sir Anthony Roper your Petitioner's Brother, your
Petitioner should settle the Reversion of the Manor
of Habour, in Lincolnesbeir, after your Petitioner's
Death, on the said Ralph Wiseman and his Wife,
and his Heirs; and also, after the Death of Sir Anthony, to pay Fifty Pounds per Annum to him and
his Wife; with some other Provision, That if no
Lands descended from the said Sir Anthony Roper,
that your Petitioner should secure the Payment of
Four Thousand Pounds to him and his Wife, after
your Petitioner's Death; and upon Request to enter
into a Statute of Five Thousand Pounds for Performance thereof; which Articles were entered into
only at the Desire of the said Ralph Wiseman, the
better to procure a Reconciliation with his Father;
and the same was only voluntarily done by your Petitioner; and so the said Ralphe Wiseman declared, and
agreed that no other Use should be made thereon;
and accordingly the said Articles lay sleeping above
Twenty Years, and no further Assurance was required, nor any Request made to enter into the said
Statute: But, about Three Years since, a Bill was
preferred into the Chancery, by the said Ralphe
Wiseman, against your Petitioner and Sir Thomas Wiseman, charging a Combination, and to have the said
Lands settled, and the Fifty Pounds per Annum paid:
To which Bill your Petitioner, by Advice of Counsel,
demurred. But the Court was pleased to order an
Answer, in respect the Point of the Demurrer might
be insisted on at the Hearing. After which, the
Cause was heard, and decreed contrary to your Petitioner and his Counsel's Expectation.
"But, though it were declared that the Court did
not bind the Interest of the Land, yet that the Court
would enforce your Petitioner to perform his Agreement; and did order and decree your Petitioner to
perform the Articles and Agreement, and convey the
Manor of Harbour, according to the Meaning of the
"Now, for that your Petitioner humbly conceiveth the same Decree is erroneous, and the
Cause not proper for the said Court of Chancery, for these Causes; because Damages
were only recoverable at Law upon the Articles; and because the Bill, as against Sir Thomas Wiseman, was dismissed, and your Petitioner still chargeable at Law at his Suit:
And for that the Court declared the Interest
of the Land is not bound, and yet decreed
your Petitioner to convey, and thereby enjoined what is not possible for him to perform, the Lands being long since sold, for
Payment of many just Debts due to the King
and others; and in respect your Petitioner
had but a Possibility when the Articles were
entered into: For which Causes, and many
other apparent Defects and Errors in the said
Decree; and for that your Petitioner, relying
that the Cause was proper for Law, did not
examine Witnesses, to prove the said Ralph
Wiseman's own Agreement that no other Advantage should be taken of the Articles than
to procure his Father's Favour:
"Therefore your Petitioner's humble Suit is,
That your Honours would be pleased to
take the Premises into Consideration;
and, upon Examination of the Truth
hereof, to reverse the said Decree; and,
till your Lordships Leisure permit to hear
the Cause, that all Proceedings upon the
said Decree may be stayed by your Lordships Order; to whose Justice he humbly
appeals, and will readily submit.
"And ever pray, &c.

Interest after the Rate of Eight Pounds per Cent. per
