773. The Privy Council to Seymour and Wotton.
The King has received your letters touching our merchants' discharge
of the impost and the Prince of Orenge's victory against the Clevoys.
As the Regent has shown herself conformable to the King's desire, we have
trevailed with our merchants to give her (not as of duty but for a
benevolence) 1,000l. Fl., as the governor and three or four of the best of
their Company, who are appointed to deliver the said present, will declare.
The King has taken order for sending over the aid to which he is bound
by the treaty, and has appointed Mr. Treasurer to be captain of them, and
you, Mr. Seymour, marshal, bringing with you 30 horsemen and 100 footmen.
You are to prepare to meet Mr. Treasurer at Calais in three weeks'
time, against which the King will write to the Regent revoking you and
committing the whole embassade to you, Mr. Wootton.
P.S.—You shall advise the Regent to use well this victory against the
duke of Cleves—the Prince not pressing the Duke too much, but rather
drawing towards the parts which the French king is about to invade. The
King will send his aid shortly, and has appointed Mr. Wallop to repair
towards St. Omer's, or elsewhere as Mons. de Roeulx shall advise, with
such forces as can be spared until Mr. Treasurer comes over, who prepares
with all diligence.

774. Chapuys to the Council.
Even if the Wychardines had had no safeconduct I cannot understand
by what right your men could take from them the goods of the Emperor's
subjects, especially as the war between you and the French was not open
until the expiration of the 20 days, although the Emperor might punish
them for trading with enemies. Now, as the Wychardines have the
Emperor's passport and also the King's consent, who made no difficulty
except about transporting their goods in French ships, it seems strange that
the wines and merchandise are detained, the Emperor having need of the
wines, which have been bought with the Wychardines' money. That the
casks bear English marks proves nothing, as these may have been forged
by the purchasers or belong to the vendors. Begs them to order release of
the ships and goods. The Wychardines offer to give satisfaction for any
found to belong to Frenchmen. Stapeney, 26 June 1543. Signed.

Enclose a letter from Sir Robert Ellerker to Sir Robert Bowes
concerning the misdemeanour of Roger Graye, bailiff of Woller, "who
will neither make man nor money, nor distrain them that be under his
rule, for setting forth of men at this time to serve the King under Mr.
Bowes." Ellerker can report the misdemeanour; and Graye is to be
committed to ward, and also compelled with those under him to bear like
charges as their neighbours.
At Newcastle, the taking of lord Maxwell was in traverse between
Eglenbye and George Forster; and Eglenbye was adjudged to be the taker,
chiefly upon Forster's own words, viz. that Maxwell bade him fetch Thomas
Dacre to be his taker, but he did not till Eglenby came; to whom he said :
"Fye! Mr. Eglenbye, here is the lord Maxwell; why do ye not take him ?
Whereupon Eglenbye came and took him." As Forster now denies saying
this, pray write in your next letters "what ye remember his said words to
have been." Darnton, 26 June. Signed.

776. Adrien De Croy [Sieur De Roeulx] to Wallop.
I have received your letter and seen what you wrote to Mons. du
Biez, with his answer, and think that if we wish to do anything we are
waiting too long. The French are at the abbey of Marolles with their King
and his two sons and all his nobility. They have burnt some villages and
taken some little forts. I have always, like a fool, spared them from
burning, but hope soon to recover [ground]. They talk of besieging
Avesnes or Le Quesnoy, which if they do I hope that, within three weeks,
we shall give them battle; for since we have done with our enemies of
Cleves, who have fled and lost their artillery, we shall be reinforced. I
came into this country of Heynault to assist the duke of Arscot. Now
that he is reinforced, I go to-morrow to the Queen, and from thence will
return to my frontier, where I hope to see you soon. Mons, 26 June 1543.

779. Suffolk and Tunstall to [Parr].
His letters sent this morning, with Mr. Sadleyr's letters and two
other Scottish letters and his examination of the Scot, (fn. 1) are sent to Court
with all speed. Where he marvels that Sir John Wetherington's entry into
Scotland is appointed, he mistakes the whole matter. Wetherington has
laid pledges for the payment of his ransom, not for his re-entry, and has
asked Parr's licence to commune with his taker because, "without our or
your licence, he ought not to commune secretly with any Scot." The King's
pleasure is that all English prisoners taken before the truce may agree for
their ransoms, as has been shown to such as repaired hither and as Parr
may show to such of Northumberland as repair to him. Beg him to send
them the Scot whom he has examined of Witherington's matter. Darnton,

780. Francis I. to Du Bies.
Received his letters, by the Sieur de Famezelles, together with the

strange. He is to answer that Francis, esteeming the King of England to
be as much his friend as ever, cannot think that the articles (which are not
dated nor signed) are his; but, if he will avow them and send them duly
signed, Francis will, upon safe conduct, send a personage to answer each so
reasonably that he will have occasion to be content. Marolles, 27 June 1543.

781. William Watson to Henry VIII.
We came, 11 June last, safely to Hamburght and sent all our cloths
by land to Lewbyck, where I saw them shipped and ready to depart for
Dansyk on Midsummer Day. One of the Council of Lewbyck, who was
my factor here for 12 years, sent me a letter from Borne Holme, dated
20th inst., warning me that the King of Sewthen had lying there a long
bark of war with letters of "martt" to rob men of Rostock and Wyssmer,
being under the duke of Mekelbarth, and Englishmen,—the latter because
Englishmen have taken a ship of the King of Sewethen's secretary bound
for Sellond or Hollond. On seeing this letter, went to the Council of
Lewbyck, who licensed me to arrest the ships in which our cloths were
laden, being in all, your Grace's and our own, 86 fardells that went over
with me in the Mary Kateryn. One of the ships named Jorg Dargosse, of
Grypsewold in the land of Pommer, had already sailed, with 20 fardells of
cloth and 2 English merchants, "whereof there is v. fardells of Skotts
cloths for your Grace's aventure." We took the rest out of the ships and
laid it in Lewbyck.
Begs him to write to the King of Sewthen to know how things stand.
Passage thither may always be had through Lewbyck. The King of Sewthen
"hath the over hand" with his commons. Two days ago, when at
Lewbyck, saw Hamburght ships arrive there through Denmark with salt from
Burwage (Brouage). The King of Denmark kept them 14 days in the
Sownd, and on the 20th inst. licensed them to pass to Dansyk, Rey and
Revell but not return. There lie in Denmark 60 ships of Breme,
Hamburght, Lewbyck, &c., with one small English crayer bound for London.
The King will not suffer them to pass and has taken above 500 of their best
mariners and 100 pieces of ordnance, and has prepared 10 great ships of war
and 10 small, which on Midsummer Even departed from Copman Havyn to
Elzynnor, 5 miles off. The King of Sewthen will send them 12 ships of war
and the duke of Spruce, "as my brother writeth me," 4. They say that the
King of Denmark has gone over to speak with the King of Sewthen, and at his
return will sail for Hollond or Sellond to do some hurt; but the common
voice at Lewbyck and here is that these ships will go to Skottland, with all
the "lanche knyghtt[es]" of Denmark and Sewethen, reckoned at 10,000,
to make the King's brother King of Skottland, and that 4 Skotts ships
from Dansyk are arrested in Denmark.
Sends this by his servant, Thos. Flud. "Here is the common saying
that the Emperor's Grace should be dead, and much money laid upon it."
Begs instructions whether to ship the King's cables and ropes which are
making in Dansyk to Lewbeck, and thence bring them hither in lighters
"and so from hence to London." Hamburght, 27 June 1543.

782. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote last on the 22nd. The Emperor and Bishop met at Bussey,
a place pertaining to Sor Palavisin between Cremona and Parma, on the
20th; and parted on the 24th towards Almayne and Bononye, respectively.
What they treated is not divulged, but men think they remain friends.
The Emperor leaves three commissaries, among them Granveilles, to treat
with three of the Bishop's. Doria counselled the castellan of Nisa to
feign that he would give the castle to the French, and so drew French
galleys thither, of which Doria took 4 and chased 10 others. Doria has 60
galleys, the Spanish galleys remaining for the presidy of Italy. On the 8th
the Turks' navy of 200 sail was at Corfu, where Barbarossa received presents
of the Venetian officers. On the 10th he was seen at Puglia sailing
towards Sicile, Captain Polin with him. In Austria seems weak provision
against the Turk, but 7,000 Almains and 4,000 Italians have entered
Vienna. Boheme promises Ferdinando 3,000 horse and 4,000 foot besides
money. The Turk was to be at Belgrado on the 15th. He has released
Turcovalente, a principal Hungarian, whom he had in prison, and has
written liberal offers to the Hungarians, to be under his dominion, which
it is feared they will accept, like the Queen and Friar George. Venice,

was at Constantinople, to go upon it and intercede that the lands of the
King's confederates might be spared, especially those of His Holiness,
Thereupon obtained from the Grand Signor strict command to Signor
Barbarossa to spare lands of His Holiness. Has not been able to notify
this sooner. Assures him that the people may remain at rest, and promises
payment if they have meat or other provisions to sell. From the galley

786. Wallop to the Council.
Received theirs of the 26th on the 27th, and will put himself in
order as directed; and so has written to the Great Master. Of the 1,500
footmen last sent, would leave 300 or 400 and take as many of the old
crews instead. The lord Warden's band and Mr. Cobham's, with Mr.
Mewtiez' 200, are tall men, and the rest will "pass honestly," all except
300 or 400 who are not yet meet to be led into a strange country. Wishes
his appointed number of 20 horsemen increased to 30, and to have his
brother Captain Harleston with him, leaving the rest under his petty
captain to keep watch and "skult." At Arde, when they be 100 men of
arms they keep not above 80 horses for that purpose. Desires also 24
household servants to wait on him, and will appoint others to furnish the
Castle. The 500 labourers and 200 pioneers are ready. John up
Rychardes has taught 100 to shoot in halfhakes and is himself "a very
warlike person." Wishes Mr. Vaughan and Mr. Wingffeld to have charge
of the other 200. Suggests either Sir Edw. Ryngeley, Sir Wm. Purton
or Mr. Marshal of Calais to take charge of the Castle in his absence.
Ryngeley and Purton have done it before; and "as for Mr. Marshall, and if
he have a 100 horsemen, Northen men, he shall be the more meet to lie
here, always considered he do keep the said castle himself for better surety,
otherwise he may fortune come short home." Reminds them to provide
waggons in Flanders, for carriage of tents and stuff, and of the bows,
arrows, strings, and corn powder to be sent over. A "book of articles"
for the ordering of the men is necessary. As there is little beer in Flanders,
and that "very evil," it may be sent from Calais and Guisnes as long as
we lie about St. Omer's.
The French king is yet in Henowe with "the Dolphin captain of
vanguard, himself of the battle, and Mons. Dorleance of the rearguard."
Vandosme's camp lies near, and he returns to Picardy because of the
Englishmen's coming over. De Beez yesterday escorted certain horsemen
of Rocheporte's band to within two miles of Arde; where are now 100
men of arms, and all horses sent away except 80 to keep the "skult."
Arde is in great fear, old men, women and children sent away and the
country people fled.
Begs that "some discreet person in fortification, as Mr. Candyshe of
Dover," may be sent hither, to report the state of the works to the King.

made answer as well concerning the beer as the rest, adding news of the
late overthrow of the Clevoyez, which is not yet penetrated into their ears.
The French king has retired to Morall, a village on the border of Hennowe,
and comes to St. Quyntynes; either awaiting the coming of the duke of
Cleves or fearing a descent of Englishmen. They reckon the Emperor will
not come before winter. Guisnes, 28 June. Signed.

788. Oudart Du Bies to Wallop.
Found the beer which Wallop formerly sent him very good, and
desires to purchase more. Had this morning letters from his King, with
news from Italy that, on the 15th inst., the Emperor was still at Pavia
awaiting answer from the Pope about their interview, which the Pope
declined because the Emperor had made alliance with the King of England.
The Emperor sent the Pope a copy of the said alliance, by which the Pope
and the Holy See are excepted, assuring him that the King of England was
to be trusted and that he (the Emperor) made the alliance in order to
restore that King to the obedience of the Roman Church. The Pope then
agreed to the interview, within his own territory, but it cannot be before
the end of this month, so that the Emperor will not be in the Low
Countries so soon as the Burgundians bruit; and the King will be very
vexed, for he came out with such a puissant army to fight the Emperor,
and now the Emperor cannot be here before September, when winter will
be come. But the King's army is not idle, for he daily takes towns and
castles, fortifying those that are guardable and destroying the rest.

789. Queen Mary of Hungary to Chapuys.
The Sieur de Chantonnay, gentleman of the Emperor's mouth, this
bearer, is despatched to the King of England with an instruction which he
will show Chapuys. Has given him a particular instruction to require the
King to hasten the assistance which he is bound to give by the treaty of
stricter alliance; and has also pressed the King's ambassadors here, seeing
that the king of France with a great power is already well entered into
Henault. Sends against him part of the force she had about Hainsbergue,
which has raised the siege, revictualled the town and won the enemy's
artillery. These with the 3,000 Spaniards just arrived, the men she has
in Henault and Arthois, and the English assistance, if it comes in time,
should make the enemies retire. As the King of France has 30,000 foot,
8,000 horse and 30 pieces of great artillery, his necessity and perplexity is
not to be too much counted upon; but he could not resist the united
forces of the King of England, the Emperor and the writer (she having
7,000 horse and 30,000 foot). Also regard must be had, as the instruction
says, to Scotland, for even if England is at a point with the Scots the
King of France will not cease to embroil things there. As to assisting the
King if he should invade France, will be guided by the capitulation made
thereupon. As to the letter of the French ambassador with the Pope, taken
in Italy, thinks it well to show it to the King.
In reply to his letters of the 23rd and 24th inst. : He has done well to
persuade the English to make the insinuation (l'insinuacion) of war. Desires
him to send copies of the writing which he delivered and of the instrument
of the King's oath to the treaty of stricter alliance. The enterprise of
Monstrel, of which he writes on the 23rd, could not be done as long as the
French king is in this country unless he should lay siege to some strong town
which could hold him three or four months. Our first duty is the defence
of the country, to which the King of England is bound, and whose men of
war we desire to employ in Haynault.
The captain of Guisnez has written to the Sieur de Biez not to hurt the
Emperor's subjects near his master's ground; and thereupon the French
have published at Ardre (as the captain of Gravelingues writes) that no one
shall hurt the Emperor's subjects on that side. Sees in this a means of
collusion and temporising, which Chapuys must be ready to remonstrate
upon when it is seen how the captain (fn. 3) whom the King sends hither shall
act. Fears that, if he made difficulty before he had left his own house, he
will make more on this side and will do little or nothing without each time
consulting the King. Chapuys must therefore use dexterity to obtain from
the King that he (the captain) should do as the writer shall command him;
otherwise it is to be feared he will do little service.

Queen of Hungary gave him, in passing, letters to the King and charge to
declare that the king of France, with his two sons and all his power is in
Haynault, having taken some little forts and spoiled the country, intending
to join the Clevois who were before Heynsberge. This she expects is
prevented by the defeat of the Clevois, but the King will continue his
invasion of Haynault if not resisted, and she has therefore sent 3,000 horse
and 10,000 foot who were about Heynsberge towards Haynault; who, with
the men in Haynault and Arthois and the 3,000 Spaniards last arrived from
Biscay, and Henry's aid, should stop the enemies. Requiring him to send
the aid as soon as possible, in order to avoid the waste which the king of
France makes, and also, in making him retire, to have occasion thereupon

790. Mont To Henry VIII.
The rumour of the Emperor's coming lately increased, and is now
confirmed, the Emperor having proclaimed a Diet to be at Spires 30 Nov.
next, by mandate marked "datum in Genua, nostra et Imperii et camera
et urbe, secunda die Junii." 120 great pieces of ordnance (tormenta bellica
majora) which he had forged at Augzburg were brought to Spires eight
days ago, and much powder and ball comes daily. As war has broken out
he probably defers sending it down the Rhine to Brabant. The captains
whom Dominus de Lyra retained hereabouts some months ago are wearied
with waiting and many of their men dispersed; so, it is thought, the
Emperor will not be averse to a truce with Juliers. Frederic Palatine, the
bp. of Cologne and duke of Juliers are said now to be together. The four
electors of the Rhine, in order to end this war, have come to an agreement.
The German princes would not have Gueldres in the Emperor's hands.
Ferdinand, at Nurnberg, begs for the promised soldiery to protect
Hungary (and there is great rumour of the Turk's coming) but no one
lends. The Protestants are holding a Diet of learned men. All their
princes and states are to meet at Smalcaldia on the 24th inst., except the
king of Denmark, who sends his commissary. The Protestants have given
the Emperor some waggon loads of powder and permitted him to purchase
much more in their cities. Spires, 28 June 1543.

791. Sadler to the Council.
Since writing last, could have no access to the Governor, both on
account of his sickness, and his delay in coming hither, which, he himself
sent word, should have been four days ago. Yesternight, late, he arrived;
and to-day Sadler has conferred with him, urging him to the apprehension
of the Cardinal, Lenoux and their adherents. Found him well minded,
but seeming to make the enterprise more difficile than he was wont, both
because of their strength and their hope to have shortly out of France
50,000 cr., 10,000 pikes, 2,000 halberts, &c. Told him that if he
mistrusted such aid from France he should be doing before it arrived, and
might be sure of the King's aid. He said he trusted to have God and the
King on his part, for whose sakes he had (and should have) much cumber
here, but he doubted not that the King could do more for him than could
the French king for his adversaries; and, as soon as peace was concluded
and pledges laid, he would follow the King's counsel against the Cardinal
and Lenoux, and in all other things, but, before that, to make any stir
might hinder his obtaining the pledges and the perfection of the peace.
Touching the prisoners, the Governor said he had warned all to be ready
to enter forthwith and they would be here to-morrow or next day. On
their arrival the Governor, Anguishe, Casselles and Sadler will resolve
which shall be respited until Lammas, according to direction lately
received from Suffolk. The Governor said that, on receipt of last letters
from his ambassadors, he sent to the Borders and proclaimed the prorogation
of the peace to 1 August. The French navy lies now afore Aberdeen.
The Governor thinks they lie there for our Island (Iceland) fleet; and hears
that they expect a great navy from Denmark to join them, for the keeping
of the seas against the King and Emperor. He does not mistrust their
landing in Scotland and fears only French gold, saying that, if the French
king send men, a few men would soon be despatched and a number would
starve. Edinburgh, 29 June. Signed.

Supposes that Chantonay will have reported occurrents here and

negociated as will be seen by the copy of his letters to his sister, to be
communicated to the king of England. The King may be told that the thing
which the French lay most stress upon with the Pope, to the Emperor's
detriment, is the last treaty. His Holiness has by admonitions and
persuasions sought to know whether the treaty could be retracted and
whether, notwithstanding it, the Emperor would suffer him to assist
France; but the Emperor has absolutely refused and said that he would
assist England to the end against France. Holds it certain, therefore, that
the Holy Father will absolutely refuse the pretension of the king of France.

796. Sadler to the Council.
This morning the Governor has news from Aberdeen that the 15
("sixteen" in Sadler St. Papers) sail of Frenchmen have landed a few men
at Aberdeen and thereabouts and conveyed writings to the Queen Dowager,
the Cardinal and Lennox. Albeit the captains say that they remain to
encounter a fleet of Flemings, it is thought that they are come "for some
other great purpose," having 2,000 men of war aboard who keep very
close "within board." It is thought that they bring, as Sadler wrote,
50,000 cr., 10,000 pikes, 2,000 halberts ("hagbuts" in Sadler St. Papers)
and certain pieces of artillery. The Governor goes forthwith to Linlithgow
to order the sure keeping of the young Queen, whom Sadler advises him to
remove to Edinburgh castle. He assures Sadler that he will be sure of her,
and that with the King's assistance, he esteems not much the power of his
adversaries, for all the aid France can give them. Hitherto, could not
persuade him and Angus that this French navy came for such a purpose as
begins to appear; but now they begin to smell it. The Governor has
written to his ambassadors, touching that matter, the enclosed letter, which
he begs Sadler to forward. Edinburgh, 30 June. Signed.

797. Oudart Du Bies to Lord Maltravers.
In pursuance of what he wrote of the receipt of the articles, he sent
them to the King, who cannot think they come from his friend, the King
of England, especially as they are neither dated nor signed. If the King
of England will avow the articles, and send them duly signed, Francis
will, upon safe-conduct, send a personage to reply to each of them to
Henry's satisfaction. Sends Francis's letter, to be forwarded. Begs
answer to this and to know the day of expiration of the twenty days.

798. Seymour and Wotton to Henry VIII.
On the 28th received the Council's letter of the 26th; and yesterday
had access to the Regent, declaring Henry's diligence in sending over part
of his men already and giving order for sending the rest, and also what
Mr. Wallop should do with those already come over. She thanked Henry,
and said they could not come too soon to be welcome, and that Mons. de
Reux would be with her that day.
This day she sent for them and said, in presence of De Reux, that Wallop
should not yet remove from Guisnes, but spread a bruit that the host
should go straight into Hainault, to join the Duke and Prince and give
battle to the Frenchmen; lest by Henry's men lying at St. Omer's they
should suspect some enterprise about Monstreull and reinforce the garrisons.
De Reux said he would depart hence to-morrow, to prepare his men secretly and
communicate with Wallop. The Regent required them to signify this to
Henry, and also to Wallop, although they said that they knew not whether
Wallop had not already departed or durst stay at Guisnes without command.
The Prince, having revictualled Heynesborgh is going towards Hainault.
The French have forsaken Maulbeuge, burning only the town gates. They
burn no more the country as they did; and go on fortifying Landressy.
The King is still at Marolles. Some think they are cooled, or else begin
"to hearken towards" Henry's men that come over. Bruxelles, 30 June

799. Scotland and the Marches.
"A remembrance made by Sir Thomas Wharton, deputy warden of
the West Marches of England," in the month of June 35 Henry VIII., of
his opinion for the better preservation of peace between England and
Scotland and better service of the King upon all three Marches and at the
town and castle of Carlisle, viz. :—
All the "mere grounds" of England and Scotland to be certainly known.
All laws of the Marches to be put in writing and proclaimed four times a
year in each of the Marches. The East, Middle and West Marches of either
realm to be certainly bounded, and convenient meeting places for the officers
appointed. The officers of every March of either realm to meet monthly or
oftener, and exchange indentures of their conclusions. Twelve of the wisest
Marchers, six of each realm, to be appointed to gather in articles all questions
not settled in the treaty of peace, to be established as a law by the kings
of both realms.
ii. Wharton's opinion "what hath been the occasion of evil," viz. :—
1. The making of no redress for fire and blood. 2. Delay of redress for
other heinous offences. 3. The "ressett" of rebels, against the peace.
iii. Wharton's opinion for service of the King upon all his marches and
for better furniture and manning of them, "which is a needful point," viz. :—
1. That all chief lands of great lordships containing any convenient
number of men be held by the Crown. 2. Fertile ground to be diked and
fortified with towers. 3. A warden or deputy warden to rule both the
East and Middle Marches and the offices of Tynedale and Reddesdale and
all other head offices in Northumberland, using the King's castles and houses
at his pleasure and spending at least one month yearly at Harbotle or
Chypechaice; and he to have the leasing of all fertile ground not now
occupied. 4. All gentlemen marchers, at every change of head officer, to
be sworn to the oath of the pensioners; with this addition, that they shall
reveal any March treason they may know of, and any delivery of goods to
Scots and any persons known to be practisers with the Scots. 5. The
warden to have in fee certain of the most active and wise men of the
Marches, and to consult the gentlemen marchers frequently. 6. Active
and wise men to be appointed to all offices.
iv. Wharton's opinion for the West Marches, viz. :—
1. The warden or deputy-warden to have the captainship of the town
and castle of Carlisle. 2. The three baronies called Burghe, Gillesland and
Graystok to be the King's, "by exchange or otherwise," and the warden to
have the leading of the men of the bishop and college of Carlisle and the
lands belonging to any late monasteries. The head officer to lie either in
Naward or Carlisle castle at his pleasure; and Naward should keep
Gillesland in obedience and be a scourge to offenders in the Waistland,
Tyndall and Ledesdall. The officer of Burghe to lie at Rocliff or
Drumbeughe and the officer of Bewcastle to keep house there. The
stewardship of Penreth and Quennes Hames to be at the head officer's
command. The lands which the King now has along the Marches, as the
lordship of Hollme Coltrane, barony of Wigton, forest of Westward, honor
of Kokkermouthe, to continue as Crown lands. The leases which the
Grames have to be fully observed, especially as regards making of dykes, as
made by the earl of Southampton, dec., then chancellor of the Duchy.
Wharton does not give this opinion for his own profit, he being ready to
serve the King anywhere; and he knows the fee of 500 mks. to be
insufficient for the office of deputy-warden of the West Marches and captain
of Carlisle. Redesdall, Tynedall, Bewcastle daill, Waistland, and Gillesland
should be surveyed every three years to see that there are not too many
women and impotent and idle people. Commissioners should, every three
years, inquire into and make certificate of all executions by officers in those
March countries that are bound to serve the King, and therefore discharged
of subsidies and taxes. The offices of the captain and the mayor of Carlisle
should be defined. The woods in the Batable Land should be destroyed, so
that it may be forayed by horsemen, and then it may all be kept at the
King's commandment "without any division to be made thereof." The
underwoods at the head of Tyndall should likewise be felled.
A great part of these opinions were Wharton's in July 34 Hen. VIII;
and now, in June 35 Hen. VIII, things have been so advanced by the
King's "most noble and costly acts and deeds" that many of them may be
Pp. 10. Endd.
800. Northumberland. (fn. 4)
"A declaration of the misorder which is in Northumberland, and
chiefly upon th' East and Middle Marches."
First, because there is no punishment of faults, the misdoers "have
gotten the over hand of the good men (if there be any)," so that he who can
practices to be at kindness with the thieves, both Scots and English, and
therefore gentlemen's goods are saved and poor men's spoiled. This is
because "the strength of men upon the Borders is so much decayed that I
think verily the gentlemen and others are fain, of necessity, for the saving
of their goods to show kindness." This decay is due to two causes :—
1. Lack of good officers, to see "the good orders of the Borders" kept.
(In margin in another hand : "Md., that letters be written already
to know what th' orders and laws of the Borders.") 2. The taking of
gressoms, which has so impoverished the people that they are unable to
maintain horse and harness.—Where the last earl of Northumberland's
grandfather made 1,000 spears of his tenants of Northumberland the last
earl could not make 100, but was fain to have 40 out of the Bishopric;
and every lord's tenants are likewise diminished, so that "there is not
now, besides the garrison," 300 horsemen, and where the whole number
of harnessed men was 4,000 or 5,000 it is not now 1,000.
For remedy it is thought good :—1. That a ruler be appointed, who
will without fear see justice done. 2. That no gressoms be taken
of such as will find horse and harness, as follows, viz., a tenant paying
20s. rent and upwards, "a good gelding, a harness and a spear"; one
paying between 10s. and 20s., a horse and harness, bow and harrows; one
under 10s. taking "the benefit not to pay gressoms," a harness, bow and
arrows; and every man of lands to keep men horsed and harnessed
"according to his lands"; provided always that no man have a farm but
he that shall dwell thereon.
To enforce the above, an Act should be made that no landowner in
Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmoreland, and the Bishopric take
"any gressoms or fynes," and if tenants refuse to keep horse and harness
as above, the owners to put them forth; all owners to take quarterly
musters of their tenants, to see that they are furnished, and books of these
musters, signed by the takers, to be delivered to the Warden. Every owner
to have a book of the order taken "for all manner of farmers and
tenants" and see it observed, and the Warden to appoint every man of
land in the said shires to a reasonable number, taking a book of the
names, &c., and seeing them mustered four times a year.
And albeit Westmoreland, Cumberland, the Bishopric and the West
Borders "be already in reasonable good cace," this order would make
them stronger to help the Middle March and to defend themselves. The
countries shall thus wax stronger and wealthier, and the King shall be at
less charge in time of war. The pensions do more hurt than good; for
those who have no pensions say "Let the pensioners go" and the
pensioners say "that they be not bound to go but at the days of trewe and
at the Wardens' calling," so that, between them, "the country is suffered to
be daily spoiled and robbed." All Scottish men, women and children to
be put into Scotland and no Englishman to receive any more "upon pain
to be taken as a maintainer of the King's enemies." The Warden to send
the King yearly a book of all the musters.

Sc. II. 174.
"Informatio pro illustri principe domino Jacobo Arraniæ Comite,
Regni Scotiæ Gubernatore."
To remind His Holiness that, from of old, the Kings of Scotland
have had grant of the Apostolic See to wait eight months for letters of
commendation of the Princes before providing to consistorial benefices. As
that time seemed too brief in time of war, the late King James V. had it
extended to twelve months. Now it is rumored that Robert Crichton, since
the King's death, has, at Rome, procured the resignation of the bishopric
of Dunkeld, without our letters of commendation, to whom the kingly
offices pertain; and therefore we desire his Holiness to silence this procuration
of the said Robert.
Since the monasteries commended to the King's children lie on the confines
of England where the enemies make their strongest raids, we would
have his Holiness permit us to dispose of them until the children's lawful
age of 22 years, choosing new administrators, if necessary, and converting
the fruits beyond those necessary for the commendataries to public uses
and the defence of the realm, especially at this time when the enemy
threatens the overthrow of religion and perpetual slavery. Our letters to
his Holiness contain the rest.
