It was reported to the House, by the Lords Committees for Imprisonments, etc. That Ralph Macro, for
new building some ruinous Houses, being his Freehold,
was sentenced in the Star-chamber, at the Suit of
Mr. Attorney General, Two Hundred Pounds Fine, and
Thirty Pounds Costs, assessed against him for the Relator; the Petitioner Macro desires that he may deposit
the said Thirty Pounds Costs in the Hands of the Warden
of The Fleet, and have Liberty for his Person, to follow his Cause. All which accordingly was Ordered by
Powell to have Damages, and to be enabled to pursue his Claim to the Vicarage of Bucknell.
It was reported to the House, That one Jeremy Powell,
Gentleman, is seized, in the Right of his Wife, of the
Advowson of the Vicarage of Bucknill, in the County
of Salop, who, upon the Death of the late Incumbent,
presented their Clerk to the now Lord Bishop of Hereford, who protested he durst not admit him to the
said Vicarage, for that the Lord Archbishop of Cant.
had taken special Notice of the King's Title thereunto;
whereupon Powell brought a Quare impedit, and upon
that served the Bishop with a Ne admittas before the
Vicarage was full; yet, notwithstanding, the Bishop,
without any Supersedeas, admitted and instituted one
Richard Edwards, Clerk, to the said Vicarage. For
the Causes aforesaid, the Lords Committees have thought
it fit, That some Damages be given to the said Powell,
being kept a Year out of the Vicarage worth Seventy
Pounds per Annum as was reported; but the Measure
and Manner of the Damages is left to the House, to consider further of it. Hereupon the House did Order,
That the Lord Bishop of Hereford shall pay to the said
Jeremy Powell Thirty Pounds for his Damages sustained
herein; and he to be put into the same Condition for
Trial of his Right by Law, as he was in before he received this Stop in his Proceedings.
