208. The Privy Council.
Meeting at Westm., 26 Feb. Present : Canterbury, Norfolk, Privy
Seal, Hertford, Winchester, Westminster, St. John, Cheyney, Gage,
Browne, Wingfield, Wriothesley, Baker. Business :—Recognisances of
Jeronimo Michael, merchant of Venice, and Marotte Neretti, Barth.
Fortygni, and Vincentio Guichardini, merchants of Florence, to secure
Ant. Guidotti's debt to the King, which appears by specialties in the hands
of Sir Brian Tuke.
209. The Privy Council to Suffolk.
The King has seen his letters of the 23rd and the writings received
therewith. For the sake of speed, enclose minutes of letters to be
despatched with diligence from Suffolk to Anguishe and from the lord
Admiral to Arren. He shall order 500 of the garrison to remain (in
consideration of what he writes to Anguishe), including the men who were
to have remained for stay of the country and the 100 afterwards appointed
to remain with the lord Admiral.

210. The Privy Council to Lisle.
The King, upon consideration of last letters from Suffolk, thinks
Lisle should write to Arren according to the enclosed minute,—unless
he is certified that there are no such ships rigged forth. Considering the
great assembly at the Parliament now to be holden in Scotland, to reassure
those of his party there, the King has commanded Suffolk to leave 500 men
still upon the Borders.

211. H. Lord Maltravers to Henry VIII.
Ships with munitions have brought to Staples 11 pieces of great
ordnance, many tents and much wine. Of the 11 pieces, which are all
mounted and landed, 4 are double cannons and the rest culverins and
small pieces. To Patatin near Muttrell are come vessels laden with wine.
At Muttrell are many labourers and 400 men of war. The general musters
at Amiens are prorogued from the 28th inst. indefinitely. At Ard, men of
war, pioneers and women labour in cleansing the dikes. The captain there
is minded to establish the market without the town. Part of the town is
fallen down; and through the deepness of the ditch and great weight of
earth against the wall, the wall is rent and like to fall into the ditch.

Meeting at Westm., 27 Feb. Present : Norfolk, Privy Seal, Great
Chamb., Hertford (sic), Winchester, Westminster, St. John, Cheyney,
Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Wriothesley. Business :—Roland Hill and
—(blank) declared that certain persons, English and French, being
denizens, "had coloured Frenchmen's good," and were ordered to search
out the truth; and therein Roger de Pratt and Thos. Wyntroppe
commanded to appear next day. Stevens, parson of Bentworth, examined
and remanded till next day.
213. The Privy Council to Lisle.
Although the King's letters of the 24th willed him, according to
previous letters addressed to Suffolk, to repair to the King's presence, his
Majesty, in view of Lisle's intelligence with Arran and experience of the
Borders (and considering that Mr. Brian is revoked and can at need look to
the sea) has resolved that he shall remain still at Alnewyk, and shall have
100 men to attend him, besides the number appointed in the Council's
letters to Suffolk to remain for the stay of the country.

214. Suffolk and Others to the Council.
Received on the 25th, their letters of the 23rd declaring the King's
pleasure for the dissolution of the garrisons, upon the arrival of the abstinence
for the part of Scotland; which, yesternight, Rotesaye herald brought, together
with a letter to Suffolk from Arran, copy enclosed. The making of the
new seal appears to have caused the delay. Will at once proclaim the
abstinence on the Borders and dissolve the garrisons, except those appointed
to stay Tyndale and Ryddesdale, by advice of the lord Warden, whom they
expect to-morrow. Suffolk will then write to Arrayn as instructed; meanwhile
he has written to Anguishe, Sir Geo. Douglas and Sir Thos. Wharton.
Yesternight arrived the King's letters to Arreyn and to the lord Warden,
with copies, and also letters from Mr. Wryothesley to Suffolk. Intend to
send Arran his by Rotesaye herald and think it will be very acceptable.
Suffolk also writes (copy enclosed) to Arren by Rotesaye. Enclose letters
received from Sir Thos. Wharton and the lord Warden. The latter shows
strange matter against Lionel Graye, porter of Berwick, "but surely
there is likelihood of deadly malice against him." Will examine the truth of
it, and have required the lord Warden, who is gone to Berwick about it,
to put a substantial man in Graye's office for the time. Enclose copy of
his letter found in a pew in Berwick church.
P.S., in Sadler's hand.—Rotesaye herald says that the Bible, New Testament,
and like books in English, as the Prymer and the Psalter, are now
marvellously desired in Scotland and a cartload of them would be bought
there. Newcastle, 27 Feb. Signed by Suffolk, Durham, Parr and Sadler.

215. Suffolk to Arran.
By Rotesaye herald, the bearer, received his letters of 21 Feb. with
the abstinence for the part of Scotland, which he will proclaim on the
Borders and elsewhere. Will redress attemptates according to the Border
laws, as Arran has promised to do, notwithstanding that, since the
abstinence was proclaimed, the King's subjects have been burnt and
harried, for which he expects Arran will make redress.
Now that things begin to frame so well for the benefit of both realms,
exhorts him to proceed as he has begun, and to accelerate the sending of his
ambassadors. Forwards the King's letters received since Rotesaye's
coming, answering his for prorogation of the entry of the prisoners.

216. Wallop to the Council.
In answer to theirs of 24 Feb., requiring him to declare the
authority he had, "being in the crew at Guysnes," and how he used it;
was put by Norfolk, at his return from Hesdin and Dorlance, in
garrison at St. Omer with 1,000 footmen; and came thence to Guisnes,
where lord Vaulx discharged him of as many as he (Vaulx) had in his
crew, viz. 600. Had the rest only at lord Vaulx's command, who once
(doubting a siege) bestowed part of them as he thought good and set
Wallop and the rest in the keep. Doubted the keeping of it, for it was
then mineable; but now by the King's device, what for the Three Corner
bulwark and Purton's bulwark, it cannot be mined. Had no authority but
to do his best to keep the town, and to that end made a hedge about it and
part of his men lay within the park hedge. Refers to Mr. Gage who was
deputy under lord Vaulx and the lord Privy Seal that last died. (fn. 1) Lord
Vaulx had under him certain horsemen, of whom Sir Thos. Palmer and
Guyot were captains.
Hears that the French king is not yet come to Compeigne.
On Saturday afternoon three footmen of the garrison of Arde,
returning home from Guisnes, met and quarrelled with two
Englishmen coming from Anderne, who, seeing they were two to three
and one of the Frenchmen had a crossbow bent, retired; "and therewith
the Frenchmen cried Tue, Tue, and shot a quarrel at one of them, striking
him into the body." He plucked it out and ran furiously to the Frenchmen,
of whom he wounded and overcame two with a halbert and the third
ran away. That night the Englishman who was shot died, and two days
after, the Frenchman that shot him. The other wounded Frenchman
is here to be ordered by justice; which cannot be obtained from the
French for like offences, they having lately murdered two other
Englishmen, as Wallop has written. Heard on Wednesday last of a
proclamation at Bullen that none should speak of wars with England.
Of late Peter Haysilburghe and his brother, soldiers here, dwelling
at Ballingham, in complaining of the restraint of certain corn they had
bought in France, said that victuals, especially herring, had been conveyed
to Arde from Calais since Lent, mostly carried along the King's
river by Matthew Canell, of Ballingham. States his investigations proving
this matter, and has warned the lord Deputy, and now locks the
turnpike at Anderne nightly. The said Matthew has been supplying coals
to Arde since the fortifications began, and has some at St. Peter's and
Ballingham, which is now restrained. He is a Norman born, said to be a
burgess of Arde, and has a house there and lands in France, whereas he
was but a poor man until he married a widow at Ballingham. Keeps him
till the King's pleasure be known, as well for this matter as for certain
words which the Captain of Arde "should speak unto him," viz.,
"Matthew, regarde bien votre promesse que vous ne m'oblye point."

217. Paget to Henry VIII.
On Saturday last, obtained audience for Monday, when he spoke
first with the Cardinal of Tournon, who said four of Henry's ships had
chased a French galleon, adding that it was ill done to minister such
piques, and that a dozen ships could not stop their passage upon the sea,
who could, if they list, furnish out a hundred. Answered that he knew
nothing of it and was sorry that "some of us ministers" between the
Kings acted so indiscreetly. Tournon said that was true and lately one or
two of Marillac's letters showed that he had proceeded "passionately,"
and enlarged upon their good opinion of Paget.
After dinner presented Henry's letter to the French king, who said it
was for Paget's return and asked if his successor were come. When Paget
replied no, and that he would leave first, the King was so overcome with
passion that he could not speak. So, "to ease him," Paget said that he
had been troubled with sciatica and a disease not meet to be named,
which gave him pain in riding, and that when he came to reside as
ambassador he was promised his return in a twelvemonth. "And will you
go (quoth he) before your successor come? And when cometh your
successor? Where is he? Is he already come into France? Or is he
coming?" Paget said he could not tell, and showed Henry's letters, in
which it was written that the dean of York should come, whereat the King
seemed much relieved. Details conversation (verbatim) in which the King
said he perceived that his ambassador had not done his part, but he
trusted that his good brother would not stay to conclude with him on that
account. Paget said Henry had been earnestly minded to do so until the
ambassador broke it off. The King said he never commissioned
him to do that, and had promised to consider the inequality of
dote and dowry; but he feared there were other lets, for he heard from every
quarter that his good brother would be his enemy. To speak frankly, he knew
that the Emperor had married his children with the King of Portugal and
reserved himself for Henry's daughter, to get money; but if Henry joined
him (Francis) in this marriage he should both receive money and remain
friends with the Emperor, whereas if he joined the Emperor he must
disburse money and be Francis's enemy, who would then annoy him to the
uttermost; and if the Emperor and Francis joined, where would he be? It
were better to let the Emperor and him alone; "and if my good brother
will join with me, tell him I will stick upon no money matters, he shall
rule me as he list." Paget said he did well to speak so frankly, but things
had been very ill handled touching the ships. The King said the matters
of the ships were trifles which Henry might order as he list, as Paget might
say at his return and he would confirm it by his ambassador.
Paget then took leave, the King granting readily that Henry's sommelier
at Bordeaux should be suffered to depart with the wines he had bought there
for Henry, and that Mr. Norrey, arrested there, should be released; and
also granting Paget his passport, who then departed openly, taking leave of
Card. Tournon and the secretaries. Was scant out of the Court gate when
he was recalled and found Card. Tournon and Mons. Bayard. Tournon
said the King had changed his mind and desired Paget not to depart until
his successor came, both for the satisfaction of the world and because his
present was not ready. Paget asked why his departing offended them more
than Castillon's did Henry, "leaving nobody there behind him," and said
it was no little displeasure to him to be thus stopped, and he would not stop
unless constrained, and then would rather be stayed at Boulogne than here.
To this the Cardinal agreed, saying that to-morrow morning he should
receive the despatch for his master's wines and for the herald, and a gentleman
to accompany him to Boulogne with command to Mons. de Bees to
make him good cheer.
This morning at Melun arrived a gentleman of Tournon's called Cambey,
to accompany him to Amiens, bringing a letter to the king of Navarre for
the despatch of the wines from Bordeaux. Has sent it thither together
with a letter for the deliverance of Mr. Norrey. Cambey has his King's
letters under stamp to all officers, &c., to entertain Paget well. May yet
be suffered to pass and has written a letter (copy enclosed) to Tournon in that
behalf. If so, will be at Calais on the 8th March, otherwise it may be
concluded that he is arrested by the way. Paris, 27 Feb. Signed.

219. The Privy Council to Suffolk.
The King has seen his letters of the 25th, and answers :— (1) That
he approves Suffolk's advertisement to Wharton touching Don Laneryk,
who, as great stay to Anguishe, need not be further called upon for his
entry; but Suffolk must enquire in his next letters to Anguishe whether
the said Laneryk is indeed such a friend. (2) He marvels that they of
Scotland have not sent the abstinence for their part; but even if it come
four or five days late it is to be accepted. If it be not come, the incourses
lately made by Scots are to be revenged; and indeed the King thinks
Suffolk has been more gentle in that behalf than needed, seeing that the
abstinence was but conditional upon their acceptance or refusal.

220. Sir Thos. Wharton to Suffolk and Others.
In pursuance of Suffolk's letters of 25 Feb., stays calling upon the
lard Dumlanryke. Has communed with Maxwell and told him, as
instructed, that, Arren having written for longer day for the other prisoners,
the pledges to remain, the suit for his son was stayed. Maxwell was very
earnest for Wharton to write to Suffolk that his eldest son should not enter
again, and that his second son should lie in pledge. Maxwell's meaning is
to lie himself at Court and have his eldest son upon his offices in the
country, and he will take no office in Scotland but at the King's command.
He would have gone himself to Suffolk but Wharton dissuaded him.
In last wars with Scotland, when serving under the earl of Northumberland,
Wharton practised with a Scottish woman named Kateryn Robynson to
bring intelligence out of Scotland. Before the beginning of this war she
again undertook to bring intelligence. On the 21st inst. she came, saying
that the larde of Bukcleughe would write Wharton a secret letter if he
would receive it, and would also deliver the young Queen of Scotland into
his hands. Marvelled at such words from her, although the said laird had
sent messages by Englishmen as though he would speak with Wharton; as
the latter wrote on the 20th. Bade her say that he would receive any
letter. On the 27th she came to Carlisle and delivered the enclosed letter,
saying that her credence was that, if Wharton, through her, would appoint
time and place, the Queen should be delivered. Wrote by her to
Bukcleughe that he would meet him at his appointment and meanwhile all
things might remain as they were. Thinks it should not lie in such men's
power to deliver her; and considers the credence sent from earl Bothwell
by John Spens to like effect. Sundry espials report "that she is in great
peril either to be conveyed or destroyed amongst them." Begs credence
for his cousin and deputy Lancelot Lowther, the bearer, in this and Maxwell's
matter; and desires to know what to say if Bukcleughe appoint a
meeting. Carlisle, last day of Feb.

Scotland and other his enemies, for "resisting and gainsaying [the Pope's
laws] (fn. 2) of their abuses," and finally banished and his property confiscated,
he is now at his return debarred from your presence. We "desire you

225. The Fleet in the North Seas.
Instructions given by the King to Wm. Woodhous, gentleman,
appointed admiral of his navy on the North Seas.
To protect his subjects from enemies, the King (besides sundry navies
abroad) has appointed four good ships equipped for the war to keep the
North Seas, viz. the Trinity, Anthony, John Evangelist and Mary Grace
called Andreson's Bark, all of Newcastle, and Wm. Woodhous to have the
rule of them. They shall keep the North Seas between Humber and
Berwick, and not enter Tynmouth unless upon stress of wind or some
"chace" (qr. chase or chance?). Woodhous, as admiral, shall sail in the
Trinity [and receive commission and instructions from "the said Sir
Francis Bryan and John Osburne"] (fn. 4) and Dunstone Nudigate shall
be captain of the Anthony, Laur. Folbery of the John Evangelist and
George Ryveley of the Mary Grace, under Woodhouse, "according to such
commission as is is (sic) given unto him in that behalf." The lord
Admiral and Mr. Stannop shall see them victualled from time to time. They
shall take all Frenchmen and Scots as good prize, taking the men into
their own ships "to serve in the same as drudges" (droges) and send the
prizes, in Englishmen's charge, to the next port; advertising the lord
Admiral, and charging the officers of the port to see the goods safely kept,
and certify the King's Council, as Woodhous also shall do by letters. They
shall not meddle with any Fleming, Spaniard or Portingal unless he have
hurt any English subjects or is conveying men, munition or victual into
Scotland; in which case he is to be apprehended and kept, "to the strength
and commodity of his Majesty's navy," until further instructions. Likewise
Danskers, or ships of Estland, unless equipped for war or offenders, are not
to be meddled with; but ships of the King of Denmark himself are to be
searched for letters and news. Woodhous shall see that there is no spoil
of the goods of any ships he shall take, and in no wise "use those which
be not Frenchmen or Scots, or have not notably offended in any extreme
sort," but bestow them so that in all events he may be master of them.
