Petition of the Prebendaries of Canterbury, for Protection for themselves and the Cathedral.
"To the most Honourable Lords now assembled
in the High Court of Parliament.
"The humble Petition of the Prebendaries of
Christ Church, Canterbury, now resident there.
"Whereas your Lordships were nobly pleased, by
an Order made upon Occasion of some former Violations of the said Church (bearing Date the 17th Day
of September last past), to command that no Outrages
shall be committed against the said Church; and that
the Dean and Prebendaries and Inhabitants of the
said Church, with their Houses and Families, shall be
freed from any Trouble or illegal Molestation, from
any Person or Persons whatsoever, as by the said
Order hereunto annexed appeareth more at large:"
"May it please your Lordships, that, about the 14th
Day of this Instant March, some of the Inhabitants
of the City of Canterbury repaired unto the Petitioners, and desired them, either themselves to take
down the great Gates that lead into the said Church
and Precincts thereof, or that they would be taken
down to their Hands.
"To which Request or Menace of theirs, the Petitioners have ever since given all fair and calm Answers; telling them,
"1. That they had already, to their great Charge,
opened the Passages and Buildings round about their
Church-walls, so that the said Inhabitants might as
freely set and keep their Watches there, as any Part
of the City.
"2. That it was against the Oaths taken by your
Petitioners to their local Statutes, to strip the said
Church of those her ancient and usual Fences.
"3. That they could not be responsible for those
Exorbitances which shall be committed by them (with
whose Government the Petitioners are intrusted), if
they have no Gates to shut at seasonable Hours.
"4. And that, lastly, it was beyond Example in England, that any, who live Collegiately, should be deprived of their ancient Gates.
"After which Time (may your Lordships be pleased),
the Petitioners addressed themselves, the 18th of this
Instant, to Mr. Mayor of the City of Canterbury, and
did desire of him Protection for the Church and themselves, according to Law, and agreeable also to the
Tenor of your Lordships Order beforementioned,
from Riots and Violence.
"Whereupon Mr. Mayor sent for divers Aldermen,
which said Mayor, with divers others of the Company,
used us with all Civility and fair Respect; but some
few of the rest menaced, that Monday the 20th
of this Instant should be the Day wherein they would
have the Gates taken down (which had been done
accordingly, had not the Care and noble Love
of Mr. Mayor, Sir Edward Master, Sir William Man,
and divers other Gentlemen, prevented the Fact); intimating withall, by many Passages in their Discourse,
that their Design was at the Spoiling of the Church
and Windows thereof, so famous in all Parts of
"Now your Petitioners, as in Duty and Conscience
they hold themselves obliged to present all
humble Thanks for your Lordships former
most noble Favour, so do they in all Humility
flee to your Lordships for Succour and Protection, most humbly beseeching you that,
for the Indemnity of their Persons, and the
other Inhabitants within the Precincts of the
Church, who are by these Outrages exposed
to the Fury of ill-affected People (the scattered and divided Situation of their Houses
for the most Part rendering them unable to
help one another); and for the Honour of
God and our Saviour, to whose Service the
famous and magnificent Church of Christ,
Canterbury, is dedicated and devoted, that you
would be honourably pleased to command
Obedience to be yielded to your Lordships
former Order; and, in Pursuance thereof, to
require Mr. Mayor and the Deputy Lieutenants, and all other Ministers of Justice
whom it may concern, to save both them and
the said goodly Fabric from new Injuries and
Devastations; and, to that End, that the Gates
may continue as formerly they have done; or,
if they shall happen to be violated in the Interim, that then they may be again set up
with all convenient Speed, and made Use of
as hath been anciently accustomed; and that
the Order to be made by your Lordships may
be read and published in the said Church and
Churches in Canterbury, and the (fn. *) Parishes
March 21st, 1642.
"And your Petitioners shall, as in Duty bound,
every pray, &c.
Earl of Northumberland's Letter, about the Treaty with the King.
"Upon Return of the Answer of both Houses to
His Majesty's Message, we were commanded to attend
Him Yesterday, at Two of the Clock in the Afternoon:
The Answer being read, and presented to His Majesty, He asked us some Questions about our Power
to proceed in the Treaty; to which we answered
according to our Instructions: His Majesty then told
us, He had Two Particulars to acquaint us with; one
was, That the Queen sent to Him: The Messenger
had the Lord Fairefax's Pass, and yet was staid by
some Forces from Rockingham, and his Letters taken
from him, and sent to London; and there the Queen's
Letter to Him was broke open by the Private Committee: The other Particular was, concerning Sir
William Waller; that he came to Malmesbury, which
yielded upon Conditions, and yet they were not observed. His Majesty expressed much Dislike, that
Safe Conducts and Capitulations should not be observed. We desired to know, whether His Majesty
would command us to acquaint the House herewith.
He answered, That He left it to us, and intended to
send a Message Himself, to demand the Letter. About
Five in the Evening, we were commanded to attend
His Majesty again, who asked us very many Questions
in Order to the Proceedings upon the Treaty. To
which, after Conference together, we gave our
Answers agreeable to the Instructions.
"This Afternoon we waited on His Majesty again,
who, after long Advice with His Council, sent for us,
and demanded our Answer to that Part of His First
Proposition which concerns His Revenue. Our
Answer to it was ready in Writing, according to the
Instructions; and we presented it to His Majesty, who
said, He would send us His Answer to it; and we
are now in Expectation thereof. This being all I have
to trouble your Lordship with at present, I rest
Oxford, March the 26th,
1643. At 12 at Night.
"Very faithful Servant,
Le Cœur & al. and Hooper's Petition.
"To the Right Honourable the Lords now assembled
"The humble Petition as well of William Le Cuer
and others, the Creditors of Anthony Hooper,
Merchant, as of the said Anthony Hooper:
"That your Lordships having formerly referred the
Accompts and Differences between your Petitioners
the Creditors, and the said Hooper and the Correspondents, to Will'm Cockaine Esquire, William Berkly,
Nathan Wright, Phillip Burlemacke, and others, or
any Two or more of them, to hear and determine
the same if they could, or to certify your Lordships
by a Time prefixed, which expires about the Sixth
of April next; and, for the better clearing the Differences, the Referees were armed with a Commission,
under the Great Seal of England, and thereby authorized to examine on Oath as well the Parties concerned, as Witnesses for clearing all Doubts; that the
Referees have, in Obedience thereunto, called divers
of the Creditors and Correspondents before them,
and agitated their Accompts, and, after much Time
by them spent therein, they had prepared some of
them so far as that a few Meetings more would put
(fn. *) an End thereto; but the said Hooper being of late
charged in Execution in The Compter, at the Suit of
one Pascall, who (although he hath been often summoned by Warrant from the Commissioners) refuseth
to obey the Summons or their Authority, or to appear
before them, the said Hooper cannot give his Attendance to the Commissioners at such Times as their Occasions will best permit for their Meeting, nor any
Time but at great Charge; so as the Commissioners
cannot put so speedy an End to the Accompts (being
many and intricate) as their Time limited by the
(fn. †) Commission requires; that some few of the Correspondents and Debtors of Hooper's refuse to obey the
Summons of the Commissioners to appear at all before
them (the said Paschall being One); and some few,
though they appear, pretending they have Suits depending, refuse to come to any Accompt with Hooper;
which, the Petitioners humbly conceive, is contrary
to your Lordships Intentions, being to preserve the
Estate from the vast Expence of Multiplicity of Suits,
and to put (fn. *) an End to all Accompts:
"Their humble Suit is, that the said (fn. †) Commissions
may, by your Lordships Order, be renewed
and made returnable (sine Dilatione); and
that the Commissioners may have further Authority from your Lordships to require the
Attendance of such as refuse; and that your
Lordships will give some Command, whereby
Hooper may, with a Keeper, attend the Commissioners at the convenient Times by them
appointed; the only Way for preserving the
Estate to the Creditors, and for the speedy
ending the Differences.
"And your Petitioners shall daily pray, &c.
Report from the Referees in this Cause.
"To the Right Honourable the Lords now assembled in Parliament.
"May it please your Lordships,
"We, having been authorized by several Orders
from your Lordships, and Commission under the Great
Seal of England issued by your Warrant, to call before us Anthony Hooper, Merchant, and his Creditors
and Correspondents, and to hear and settle the Accompts and Differences between them, if we could,
or otherwise to certify our Opinion to your Lordships,
have, in Obedience to your Commands, called before
us as well the said Hooper, as divers of his Creditors
and Correspondents; some few refuse to obey our
Summons to appear before us, and Two or Three
of those that have appeared (pretending that they
have Suits depending) refuse to come to any Accompt
before us; but the rest, being the more considerable
of the Creditors and Correspondents for their great
Dealings with Hooper, having appeared before us,
we have had several Meetings, and spent divers Days
in the examining and for reconciling their Accounts
and Differences; but, in respect of the Importancy
and Intricacy of the said Accompts of the said Hooper's,
being a Prisoner in Execution in The Compter, whereby he could not nor can attend us at several our
convenient Times of Leisure, we could not therefore
proceed so effectually as by his Presence we conceive
we should have done, having agitated divers of the
Accompts, and reduced them to Heads, ready for a
Finishing; but, the Time limited us by our Commission drawing now near to an End, we cannot finish the
said Accompts by the Time prefixed; and, though we
might, in respect of our own Affairs, well crave
Pardon from being further troubled herein, yet, if it
shall stand with your Lordships Pleasures, in respect
the greatest Differences (fn. *) concern Merchant Strangers,
and to the End that Multiplicity of Suits and vast
Expences may be avoided, we submit ourselves and
our Labours to obey and pursue your Lordships further
Directions and Commands.

"To the Right Honourable the Lords in Parliament
"The humble Petition of William Rosse, Her Majesty's Servant;
"Whereas, by your Lordships Order and Warrant
annexed, your Petitioner, upon putting in Security

of the said Court, was to have restored to him his
Monies seized by the Searchers of Gravesend, who
were, by your said Lordships Order, commanded that,
upon Receipt and Sight thereof, they should make
Delivery thereof accordingly:
"And whereas your Petitioner hath put in good
Security before Mr. Baron Trevor, and demanded
his Money of John Robinson and Christofer Dighton,
Esquires, Searchers of Gravesend, upon your Lordships Order, by shewing the same unto them, who
yet have refused to deliver the same, as by the Affidavit annexed appears:
"Now for that, according to Law, Right, and
the Course of the Court of Exchequer, your
Petitioner, upon Security as aforesaid, ought
to have a Writ of Delivery; and that the
Searchers thereby are legally discharged
against His Majesty, and may proceed upon
the Information if they please; his most
humble Prayer therefore is, that the said

your Lordships Order and Command, and the
Course of His Majesty's Court of Exchequer.

that the same was intended to be sent beyond the
Seas contrary to the Statute, whereof the said
William Rosse was ignorant, being it was not to go

Order for sequestering the Profits of Horsham, in Sussex.
"Whereas, upon the Petition of the Inhabitants of
the Town of Horsham, in the County of Sussex, it
appeareth, that one Mr. Collins, their late Incumbent,
hath been deceased for the Space of Six Months last
past; and that the Archbishop of Canterbury, in
whose Gift the Vicarage now is, hath not as yet presented any fit Person to take upon him the Cure of
the said Vicarage there; by Means whereof, the Parishioners of the said Parish, being in Number Fifteen
Hundred Souls, had been wholly destitute of their
Spiritual Food, but that one Mr. John Chatfeild, a
godly and painful Preacher, their now Lecturer, hath
spent his Time and taken great Pains amongst them ever
since, who is daily threatened, by such as endeavour to
get into the said Church by the said Archbishop's Procurement, to be put from his Lecture there, and so the
Parishioners left destitute of the Comfort they now
enjoy by his Ministry, and have been deprived of for
the Space of Thirty Years last past: All which the
Lords and Commons in this present Parliament assembled taking into Consideration, and * for the settling
and establishing of one able and godly Minister in the
said Parish, and the Provision of fit Maintenance for
him that shall officiate therein, do hereby constitute
and Ordain, That Thomas Middleton, Hall Ravenscrofft,
Esquires, James Gratwick, Robert Bassett, James
Waller, Nicholas Sheppard, Thomas White, John Gratwick, and John Parkhurst, all of them of Horsham

Discretion shall think fit to appoint; and all the said
Rents, Tithes, Glebe Lands, and Profits thereby arising, the Sequestrators aforesaid, or any Three of
them, shall have Power to pay, or cause to be paid,
unto the said Mr. Chatfeild, their now Lecturer, and
a Man whom the Parishioners approve of, who is
hereby authorized and required to preach every
Lords-day, and to officiate there, and to take Care of
the Discharge of the Cure of that Place in all the
Duties thereof, until such Time as further Order
shall be taken therein by both Houses of Parliament;

shall receive, shall be their Discharge: And the said
Lords and Commons do further Ordain, That the said
Sequestrators, or any Three of them, shall have
Power to nominate and appoint such Clerks, and
other Officers belonging to the said Parish Church of
Horsham, as have been usually nominated and appointed by the said Vicar deceased, all the Time of
the said Sequestration; and shall have Power to pay

Ed. Hudson's Petition, to be recommended to the Living of Chartham.
"To the most Honourable the Lords now assembled in Parliament.
"The humble Petition of Edward Hudson,
"That whereas your Petitioner was presented by
His Majesty, and instituted by Sir Nathaniell Brent,
to the Church of Aythorne, in the County of Kent,
and (according to usual Courses in such Cases) had a
Mandate to the Archdeacon, or his Official, for his
Induction; which he (contrary to common Right), at
the Request of the Dean of Canterbury, denied to
execute, the Dean undertaking to save him harmless;
through which Stop, the Petitioner being delayed,
and denied common Justice, the said Dean got Time
to repair unto Nottingham, where, by his great
Power, and Suggestion that the Petitioner was wholly
affected towards the Parliament, he there obtained of
the Lord Keeper a Revocation of the Petitioner's
Presentation and Institution into Aythorne, and also a
Grant of the said Rectory for another Minister, who
was thereupon forthwith instituted and also inducted
to the same (as the Petitioner is ready to prove);
whereby the Petitioner, having been at great Charge,
and thereby destitute of that or any other Ecclesiastical Preferment, is utterly undone, without the
Relief of this Honourable House: And whereas the
Rectory of Chartham, in the said County of Kent,
which was the said Dean of Cant's Second Benefice
(who is now lately dead), was void in Law long before his Death (as appears by the Advice of the Petitioner's Counsel in a Case hereunto annexed), for
which the Petitioner for more than these Six Months
last hath attended in Town, to prefer a Petition to
your Lordships, that so his great Losses might be
repaired by the Equity of this most Honourable
House; and whereas, the Dean of Canterbury being
now dead, the said Rectory of Chartham is become
void by his Death, and is in the Lord Archbishop of
Canterbury's Gift, who joined with the said Dean to
make the Petitioner's former Oppression of full
Weight to undo him (as the Petitioner is ready to

which he the rather sustained for his zealous
Affection towards the Parliament), to order
the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, or whom
it may concern, to collate the Petitioner unto
the said Rectory of Chartham; for otherwise,
by the Dean's Death, the Petitioner is utterly
void of any Relief.
"And your Petitioner (as nevertheless in
Duty bound) will daily pray for the
prosperous Success of this Blessed Parliament.
