"An Ordinance of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament, whereby Clement Fulthroppe Esquire is appointed and authorized to be High Sheriff of the County Palatine of Duresme and Sadberge; and for regulating some other Things concerning the said Office, and Supply of Justice in that County.

Ordinance for Fulthrop to be Sheriff of Durham.

"The Lords and Commons, heretofore taking into Consideration the Necessity of appointing an High Sheriff for the County Palatine of Duresme and Sadberge, for that heretofore all Writs and Process out of the Exchequer and some other Courts at Westm'r were directed to the Bishop himself, who made a Mandate thereupon to the Sheriff to proceed therein, according to the Command and Direction of such Writ or Process; and Writs and Process issuing out of the Chancery at Duresme, and other Courts there, were directed immediately to the Sheriff of that County, which Sheriff was heretofore appointed by the said Bishop of Duresme for the Time being, and not in such Courts as other Sheriffs of other Counties of this Kingdom are; did, by an Ordinance of Parliament, in or about the 9th Day of February, 1646, appoint and authorize Sir Richard Belasis Knight, to be Sheriff of the said County for One whole Year, which is now expired: Therefore the said Lords and and Commons now in Parliament assembled, for putting the said County of Duresme into the same Course that other Counties in this Kingdom are, and that the Sheriffs of that County of Duresme may from hence forth begin to take their Office when all other Sheriffs do begin, do think fit to order and ordain, and be it Ordered and Ordained by the said Lords and Commons, That, from and after the Tenth Day of March, 1647, the said Ordinance, bearing Date the said Ninth Day of February, 1646, for making the said Sir Richard Belasis Knight High Sheriff of the said County of Duresme, shall from thenceforth cease and determine: And the said Lords and Commons do further order and ordain, and be it hereby Ordered and Ordained, That Clement Fulthropp Esquire shall be, and is hereby, authorized and appointed to be Sheriff of the said County; and do commit unto him the said Clement Fulthropp the Office of Sheriff, and the Custody of the said County Palatine of Duresme and Sadberge; to have and execute the same for and during the Space of One whole Year next after the said Tenth Day of March, 1647, in as large and ample Manner as any other Sheriffs of any other County of this Kingdom may or ought to do in their respective Counties: And the said Lords and Commons do further ordain, That the Commissioners of the Great Seal of England shall issue out a Commission, under the Great Seal, unto Christopher Fulthropp, Thomas Bowes, Richard Lilburne, George Lilburne, Esquires, or any Two of them, to minister unto the said Clement Fulthropp the usual Oath for the due Execution of the Office of the said Sheriff; and the said Commissioners are hereby authorized and commanded to return in the said Commission to them directed, and the Execution thereof, into the Chancery of England, there to remain of Record, which shall be a sufficient Discharge to them the said Commissioners, and every of them, in that Behalf: And whereas, by a Statute made at Westminster, the Fourth Day of February, in the 31th Year of the Reign of the late Queen Elizabeth of Famous Memory, Proclamation upon all Writs of Exigent, against any Person or Persons dwelling within the County Palatine of Duresme, are to be directed to the Bishop of Duresme for the Time being, and, during the Vacation of the Bishopric, then to the Chancellor of the said Bishopric or County Palatine for the Time being, and not to the Sheriff of any other Shire next adjoining to the said Bishopric or County Palatine; it is hereby Ordered and Ordained, That, all Proclamations upon Exigents, against any Person or Persons dwelling within the said County Palatine, shall be directed immediately to the said Sheriff; and the said Sheriff is hereby required and authorized to cause Proclamations to be made of the same Writs of Proclamation, according to the Tenor of the same; and shall make true Return of the same, in such Court or Courts, and before such Justices, as the Tenor of the same Writ and Writs of Proclamation shall require and demand; the said Statute of Queen Elizabeth, or any other Matter or Thing to the contrary thereof, in any Wise notwithstanding: And it is further Ordained, by the said Lords and Commons, That all Writs of special Capias Utlegatum, single Capias Utlegatum, De non molestando, and all other Process and Writs issuing out of any the Courts at Westminster, for or against any Person or Persons resiant within the said County Palatine, shall and may from henceforth be directed, from Time to Time, to the said Sheriff immediately, who shall do therein, and make such Returns thereupon, as other Sheriffs of any other County not being County Palatine have heretofore used, or might do: And be it further Declared, That this Ordinance, nor any Thing herein contained, is to be construed otherwise than by Way of Provision, until some other Course for settling of the said County Palatine of Duresme shall be taken by the Parliament; and that this Ordinance, nor any Thing therein contained, shall be in Force beyond the 10th of March, in the Year of our Lord 1648 only, and no longer: And it is lastly Ordained and Declared, That as well the said Clement Fulthroppe in the Execution of his said Place and Office, as also all other Officers and Persons that shall do any Thing by Virtue and in Execution and Pursuance of this Ordinance, and of the Power therein contained, and according to the Direction of the same, shall be kept harmless and indemnified, by the Authority and Power of both Houses of Parliament."
