Complains of his treatment by Sir Gregory Buttolphe, "your chaplain," whom the writer has brought up of a child. In Nov. last, knowing that Braborn had 8l. due to him upon an obligation in the hands of Leonard Johnson, Sir Gregory, by crafty means, obtained it from him. I wrote to him for it, and for 4l. stg. he owes besides; and he sent in answer that if he owed me anything the law was open. I have no remedy but by the law, which I should be sorry to put in force against him or any of your servants.

R. O.787. MAYOR AND ALDERMEN OF CARMARTHEN to [CROMWELL].
The mansion of the Grey Friars in Carmarthen is going to ruin since its surrender, (fn. 32) there being no lead on any part of it. It were a pity that such a building in such a barren country should not be conveyed to some lawful and convenient use for the maintenance of the common wealth. Ask him to be a mean to the King that it may he granted to the mayor and aldermen, with 3 meadows, a garden and orchard, of the annual rent of 18s., "so that they may have a grammar school at the cost and charge of Master Thomas Lloyd, chanter of St. Davies, there maintained." They will give the King 40l. for it, and Cromwell 20l. for his trouble.

R. O.788. KING'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
Petition, from King's College, Cambridge, to the King for release of two annual pensions paid to two houses of religion, now surrendered.
The college at this day maintains as many students and ministers as were appointed by the first founder, although the lands given it, to the value of 800 mks., were taken away and given to certain houses of religion as more meritorious. The charges of the college these 9 or 10 years past have exceeded the revenue by 200 mks., or at least 100l. yearly, and for lack of those lands the provost, fellows and scholars lack the third part of their wages. The fellows and scholars pay for their lectures as the college is not able to give stipends to the deans and readers like every other college in the University.

Hopes to obtain his request by importunity as Abraham did. Though his fault is too great to be atoned for by any services, hopes for pardon, knowing Cromwell's mercy. Since he has helped many private and ignorant persons, hopes he will be more ready to assist an educated man, a pupil of the University of which Cromwell is chief. If Cromwell is the head of the university of Cambridge, he is a part, though the vilest, of the same University. As Cromwell venerates the pure and sincere religion of Christ, doubts not that he frequently considers the precept to forgive. The greatness of the danger and the pain of the fetters already eating into his feet urge him, foolishly perhaps, to write. Unless he had the greatest hope in his mercy, would not trouble him with so many letters. Knowing that he is fond of learned men and remarkable for Christian charity, hopes he will gladly save a learned man and a Christian.

R. O.796. JOHN HAMON, of Enfield, to CROMWELL.
Complains of being persecuted by Dr. Thomas Tomson, [vicar] of Enfield (fn. 38) and his parish priest, for reading the Bible. They have caused many of their parish to hate the Bible, and call the reading of God's word a "new learning" and a "green learning that will fade away," and the the Bible "the book of Arthur Cobler," and readers of it "heretics." Once the constable came to petitioner when he was reading the Gospel in English and said "This must be left, for I am sent for to warn you by the honest men of the parish for to leave your reading, for you cause other to hear you: it were better that they prayed on their bedes than thus to come about you." On Easter Day, was shriven by the parish priest, who told the next who came to him, John Chapman, all petitioner's confession, saying "I have read of all the heretics, yet he passes them all; therefore leave his company." Is hated for "cutting out of the Bishop of Rome's cursed sentence" and bidding the Doctor erase the Pope's names from the church books and preach against the Pope's usurped power. The parish priest said this last was not his duty, but that of those "that preach the quarter sermons." Begs Cromwell to call Dr. Thomas Tomson, and his parish priest, and the others before him.

In reformation of this, Cromwell wrote to the justices of assize at Lincoln, who gave monition to Tamworth. He has, nevertheless, lately discharged two other of her tenants. As she has already troubled him with her affairs "and also that now your lordship hath had a time of great business with weighty matters," she required her husband (fn. 41) to get a Privy Seal to bring Tamworthe before the Master of the Wards, and he is now come up.

R. O.808. HENRY PALMER.
"The answer of me, Henry Palmer, vice-bailey of the town and county of Guisnes, to the book of complaints by some subtle envious persons devised and surmised to be the act of the King's poor subjects." (See Part I., No. 1296)
Desires his lordship (fn. 42) to have the charges investigated and he will perceive that the King's subjects did not of their own minds declare their griefs to Thomas Lawrence and Hugh Poole, but that some of the lord Chamberlain's servants "in the chief of their harvest" commanded them in the said lord's name, sometimes on pain of 100s., sometimes on pain of body and goods, to appear before his lordship, and when they came they were commanded to appear before Thomas Lawrence, Hugh Pole, and John Bradfeld, his councillors, in the porter's lodge at Guisnes, where they were forced by fair means or foul to swear as directed.
ii. Specific answer to the complaint of Peter Machon and others.
Denies having arrested Bawdwyn at the request of the parties. On a cry that he had killed a man took him into his own house for lack of a sure gaol at Guisnes, to protect him from Willemet Case, a Frenchman, who pursued him. Kept him eight or nine days to see if any one would bring the charge against him, and afterwards delivered him to the governor of Finis by consent of the Lord Deputy and Lord Chamberlain.
iii. For the strangers, viz.:—
In the parish of Camp refers to 10 specific cases in which he says the licence to dwell there did not come from him; one of them has lived there 26 years and was an archer on horseback under the Earl of Southampton, High Admiral, when he was lieutenant of Guisnes serving against the French. Mentions three other cases not presented. In Balyngham, two cases presented and nine not presented. One of the cases presented is of an Englishman born, who made an unlawful marriage. In Andern, five cases presented and eight not presented; two strangers were licensed to marry by Hugh Pole. Guisnes, 16 cases presented, among which:—Thomas Wodall, an Englishman born, married a stranger and has dwelt two years and more in John Poundis house. She was the widow of an Englishman, and Wodall says he had a licence to marry her from Lady Lysly. Gerard Porter and his wife, strangers born, said to have been married at Camp by licence of Sir John Butler, the commissary, were really married in Guisnes church by licence of the Lord Deputy, whose mandate for the same to the parson or parish priest of Guisnes I send your lordship; Gerard paid for his licence to abide in the country, to the Lord Deputy 5s. st., to Thos. Rogers 4d., and to the door keeper 2d. (N.B.—Similar fees are mentioned in each case throughout the document). Michael Caron and his wife had both left the country before the book of complaint was delivered. They had the lord Chamberlain's licence to leave, at the suit of the knight porter of Calais, and he to take with him his cattle, though this is against the Act of Parliament, unless the cattle be brought first into the market of Calais. Nich. Pickering, English born, married a stranger, has since served the French king in his wars and has now returned to Guisnes. He did not marry by the writer's licence nor in his time, and the writer kept him because he is a tall man broken in the wars, and knows all the fortresses and passages in Picardy. He was taken to Guisnes and cast in prison less than a day after the writer's last going to England; none of the King's retinue have been hitherto taken out of Calais to prison, but committed to the walls. The man's offence appears by his confession, and the writer thinks he should be punished but not kept in prison. Other strangers in the same parish not presented, 16. With a specific answer to the complaint of the King's tenants as to the multitude of strangers, whom they alleged the writer allowed to remain there, showing that he never gave them licence and had no power to remedy it, but the remedy lay with the Act 28 Hen. VIII., which was before he bore office.
St. Blasis 2 cases. Pytham: exculpates Sir John Butler: 9 cases presented, in the 1st of which he explains that Kebew "was Basford's tenant before I married the widow Basford." Four cases not presented, Bonynges: 3 cases presented, 2 cases not presented. Harvelyngham: 4 cases presented, 1 not presented, who had a licence to tarry in the country from the lord Deputy at the suit of Sir Thomas Palmer, chief porter of Calais, and paid for it 5 bushels of wheat, worth, as he says, 6s. 8d., also to Thos. Rogers 4d., and to the doorkeeper 2d. At his first coming he paid to Thomas Laurence 8d., and after Hugh Pole was vice-bailey he was compelled to make a new fine and paid him 16s. 1g. = 9s. 4d. st., "after this manner were the strangers in those days licensed and no fault found thereat." Scalis: 2 cases presented, one of whom has departed, leaving his wheat behind him, but taking cattle with him by the lord Chamberlain's licence; 7 cases not presented. Sentercas: 3 cases presented, 10 cases not presented. Froyton: 6 cases presented, 9 cases not presented. Nele within the baileywick of Guisnes: 7 cases. Calkewell: 3 cases presented, in one of which a stranger had a licence to marry an Englishwoman at St. Peter's by John Harris, and licence to dwell in the county from Hugh Pole, then vice-bailey, 21 cases not presented. Denies that these strangers are all married since he was bailey, but in any case he has licensed none.
iv. "The answers of me, Henry Palmer, as well to the bill of complaint for the Drysys as to the bill of particulars concerning the same Dresys." Those who complain of him are about to disinherit the King, calling it their common, when they themselves confess that they paid a farthing for the herbage of each sheep. As to the number of names in the complaint, can compare it to nothing but a ragman's roll, for many of those named had never cow nor sheep of their own. The place being on the borders of the Pale, the writer, to secure the King's rights, took it on lease of the General Surveyors of Crown lands; and whereas the profits are supposed to be great, he will resign his right for 20 nobles a year. Denies a further charge that he had sanctioned the delivery of "certain fagots, boras, and stubbis." The sale of boras was clean against his mind, though the King's tenants were always allowed some at 6d. g. the C. (100) to make their closures and hedges, "because of their free carriages which they owe yearly to the King for victualling and fortifying the King's Castle in Guisnes: which carriages are now turned to another use, that is, to carry great wood and fagots from the forest and malt from Calais for the lieutenant's of the Castle's brewhouse to his singular profit, oppression of the King's tenants, and great spoil of the King's forest."
v. Account of great wood faggots, borras, stakes, rods of young ashes and hazels that the lord Chamberlain has taken out of the King's forest 31 Hen. VIII. Also of the charges and profits of the brewhouse in Guisnes Castle and a list of 10 strangers within Guisnes Castle.
vi. Answer to the complaint of John Franck. Has invited him to bring three or four honest men and say what is the land he lays claim to.

R. O.809. THOMAS POYNTZ (fn. 43) to CROMWELL.
Cromwell knows his trouble and the cause of it, "whereby must be constrained to avoid from there as I could have lived like an honest man." Begs compassion on himself, his wife and four children, the eldest but six years. In the honour of God and the truth of His Word, for which he has suffered this persecution these five years, desires the keeping of some suppressed house, such as Halywell, where he may have honest dwelling for his family.

R. O.810. ROBERT PYE to CROMWELL.
Four years past Mr. Bartlet and I showed your Lordship the danger of an insurrection against you, by procurement of the spiritualty, for putting down the bp. of Rome. Your gentleness then has encouraged me to address you again now. I lately had business in divers parts of the realm and was desirous of knowing how the people brook the King's ordinances for the reformation of things ungodly. I asked what relief they had since the suppression of religious houses, and was told they were never in so good case, were it not for the unreasonable number of hounds and greyhounds which the gentlemen keep and compel their tenants to keep, yea! and many [tenants] keep them for their own pleasures. These dogs eat up the broken meat and bread which should relieve the poor, and in most places one or two bushels of corn are weekly made into bread for them. Taking it at one bushel a week in each of the 52,000 parishes of England, this is 2,600 mks. a week or 124,800 mks. a year. And commonly the dogs have milk and water with their bread, which, if made into cheese, would amount to as much as the corn. They say they must keep dogs or the foxes would kill their lambs; but where a fox kills two lambs I have known greyhounds kill 20 sheep in a night. There are men enough if they might be suffered with "traynes" who would not leave a fox in the country and desire no more than the "cases" for their labour; "howbeit they have been alway resisted by gentlemen for killing their game, yet this discommodity is not so much as the ungodly spending of the victual upon such unprofitable beasts and the Christian ready to perish for lack of the same."

R. O.811. MAYOR AND BURGESSES OF READING to CROMWELL.
Thank him for hearing their suits and reading their supplication, for his direction that the newly elected mayor should take the oath of the old mayor with three or four of the most ancient of the company; and also for his promise to be a mean to the King for the residue of their suits. On the Friday after their leaving Cromwell assembled in their Guildhall and after making open relation of his goodness, proceeded to elect Ric. Justice, (fn. 44) to be mayor for the following year, and fixed a day for taking his oath. Have since received a letter from Cromwell that the King desires them to present the said Mayor to Mr. Vachell, bailiff of the liberty, and he to administer the oath. Vachell is not their friend. As he intends to alter the first article of their suit, they have little cause to put confidence in him. Ask that they may not be in such subjection under a bailiff, but have the election and administration of the oath according to their former suit granted by Cromwell.

R. O.812. JOHN ROBSART.
Mr. Robsert's case:—The late abbot and convent of Wymondham leased, 1 May 28 Hen. VIII., to Reynold Lyttleprowe their tithe barn within the manor of Hapysboroughe for 5 years at 18l.: also, 3 Aug. 28 Hen. VIII., they leased it to Henry Fuller for 12 years from the Nativity of St. John Baptist, 1541 at 20l. Then the said abbot, &c., 28 July 30 Hen. VIII., assigned the said yearly rents to John Robsart, to whom they moreover leased the said barn for 65 years, after expiration of the foresaid leases, at 16l. a year. This was ratified by the Court of Augmentation by a decree 12 Dec. 30 Hen. VIII. Nevertheless the auditor has charged the said Robsart with 18l. yearly rent and for arrearages he has paid 12l. for 6 years by command of the Council. We think the said Robsart ought to pay only 16l. during the lease of Fuller, for by Statute 31 Hen. VIII. leases ratified by the Court of Augmentations "ben not avoided by the said Act." Signed: John Gosnold (?)

R. O.815. THETFORD.
"This is the humble suit and petition of the duke of Norffolk to the King's Majesty concerning Thetforde."
(1.) If the King will not have the said Duke founder of that house when converted to a college, the Duke will buy it for 1,000l. and 100l. a year of land in the King's forest of Wychwode. (2.) The Duke's intention if he may have it is to make it a parish church, where now lie buried the bodies of the Duke of Richmond, the King's natural son, the Duke's late wife, Lady Anne, aunt to his Highness, the late Duke of Norfolk, father of the said Duke, and other of his ancestors, and where he is setting up tombs for himself and the Duke of Richmond which will cost 400l. (3.) If he may have it he will make a very honest parish church. (4.) The value of the lands of the said house is 289l. (5.) There is a prior and 14 monks, and he must give a pension to the prior 40l. or 30l. at least and to the monks 100l. at least. (6.) The Duke begs the King's favour in this.

R. O.820. JOHN YATE.
Instructions to lord Cromwell, lord Privy Seal, concerning the matters in controversy between John Yate, and Walter Hopton and Joan his wife.
Inheritance of Mary Yate, daughter and sole heir of Wm. Justice, the younger, deceased, viz., messuages in and about Reading, Berks., worth 20l. a year.
Considerations for the part of John Yate to disprove the demands of the said Walter and Joan:—(Thirteen items) Hopton, as guardian in socage in right of his wife Joan, claims occupation of the inheritance of the said Mary until her full age of 14 years, but Yate says his marriage with the said Mary has determined this claim. The inheritance descended to the said Wm. Justice, late husband of the said Joan, and thence to his daughter the said Mary. Thomas Vachell is mentioned as at witness; and also two indentures between Sir Thomas Englefeld, and Walter Hopton. Hopton has not had custody of the said Mary almost these four years.
Demands of John Yate against the said Walter and Joan:—To have the evidences of the said inheritance, the plate of the late Wm. Justice, and certain sums of money and rents received up to the feast of St. John Baptist, 31 Henry VIII., and compensation for vexation in Chancery. Total, 193l. 3s. 6d.

Within which lordship I have 15l. over and besides the said 20l. now the King's. May it please the King to take my house and lands at Haveryng in exchange for the said lordship, "according to the order by his Grace taken with me for Warley." I shall not have Mr. Chancellor's favour therein, as he promised it to Mr. Tuke, who has refused it unless he may have my lands lying within the same.
