599. Henry Gee Mayor of Chester, to Cromwell.
Has received his letter dated Greenwich, 14 May, desiring the entries
of all the ships, &c. coming to Chester, and to assist Ric. Cooper in executing
the late Act for making tanned leather. (fn. 1) The Act has not yet been sent to
Chester, which is a county palatine ; and no such search has ever been made
there, in consequence of its liberties, for which the inhabitants pay unto the
prince at his first creation a mise of 3,000 marks, as they have lately done.
Will communicate his letters to the aldermen. Have only petty customs,
from shipping, which are devoted to the payment of the fee farm already
mentioned, and keep no record of them. Sends up Hugh Aldersey, one of
the aldermen, and Will. Glasiour, their counsel. Requests that their ancient
liberties may be preserved. Chester, 6 June. Signed.

600. Francis I. to the Bailly Of Troyes.
Has received his letter of the 23rd. Desires him to tell Henry that
he will follow his advice about informing the Germans of the proposed
interview. In reference to the fear that the statute against matrimonial
appeals to Rome would prevent the interview, considers, from what he hears
from the cardinals Tournon and Grammont, that the interview is certain.
It was, however, fixed to be held at Nice on July 15, but their letters of
the 27th ult. say that the cardinals and physicians urge the Pope not to
go to Nice in July on account of the heat, as, of 20 people who leave Rome
then and fall ill, only three escape. The Pope was ready to adhere to the
time fixed, but Francis has advised him to wait till the middle of August.
Will spend the time at Mascon, Tournuz, and in the neighbourhood of
Lyon. Has read the letters of the Bailly and Rostaing about the doings
of the archbishop of Canterbury, and the intended coronation of the Queen
at Whitsuntide. Lyons, 7 June 1533.

"The receiving, conveying, and coronation of the Queen."
In consequence of letters from the King to the mayor and commonalty
of London, desiring them to make preparations for escorting queen Anne
from Greenwich to the Tower, and to make pageants in the city on [Whit]
Sunday next, the day of the coronation, the common council ordered the
Haberdashers, to which craft Sir Steven Pecock, the mayor, belonged,
to prepare barges decked with targets and banners.
On May 29 the mayor and his brethren assembled at St. Mary Hill
at one o'clock, and embarked on board their barges, of which there were
50, with "shalmes, shagbushes," and other instruments on board. Before
the mayor's barge was a "foiste for a wafter," full of ordnance. In the
foiste was a great red dragon casting wild fire, and round about terrible
monsters and wild men. Another foiste contained the Queen's device, a
mount, with a white falcon crowned standing thereon, upon a "rowte"
of gold, environed with red and white roses. Round the mount sat virgins
singing and playing. On their arrival at Greenwich, the Queen entered
her barge at three o'clock, and the whole company rowed up to the Tower.
About her barge were the duke of Suffolk, the marquis of Dorset, the
earls of Wiltshire, Derby, Arundel, Rutland, Worcester, Huntingdon,
Sussex, Oxford, and others, and many bishops and noblemen, in their
barges. On the way the ships lying on the shore shot divers peals of
guns, and before she landed there was a marvellous shot out of the Tower.
At her landing she was met by the Lord Chamberlain and officers of arms,
and brought to the King at the postern by the water side. He kissed
her, and she turned back and thanked the mayor and citizens, and then
entered the Tower. None of the citizens landed but the mayor, recorder,
and two aldermen. The rest "hoved before the Tower, making great
melody." Friday, 29th, the following gentlemen, who were appointed to
be knights of the Bath, served the King at dinner, and were bathed and
shriven according to custom ; the next day they were dubbed :—The
marquis of Dorset, the earl of Derby, lords Clifford, Fitzwater, Hastings,
Mountaigle, and Vaux, Sir Henry Parker, Sir Wm. Windesour, Sir John
Mordaunt, Sir Francis Weston, Sir Thos. Arundell, Sir John Hudelston,
Sir Thos. Poyninges, Sir Hen. Savell, Sir George Fitzwilliam, of Lincolnshire,
Sir John Tyndall, Sir Thos. Jermey, [and one other, heir to lord
Windsor. "President saith these six more, viz., Mr. Corbett, Mr. Wyndam,
Mr. Barkeley, Mr. Verney, of Peuleye, John Germyne, and Robert
Whytneye, of Gloucestershire ; but I think not." (fn. 2) ]
Saturday, 31st. The receiving and conveying of the Queen through
The streets from the Tower to Temple Bar were gravelled to prevent the
horses slipping, and railed on one side. The crafts stood along one side
of the streets from Graces Church to the little conduit in Chepe, and on
the other side the constables in velvet and silk, with great staves in their
hands. The streets were hanged with tapestry, cloth of gold, and other
hangings, and the windows were filled with ladies and gentlewomen. The
order of the Queen's train was as follows : 12 Frenchmen belonging to the
French ambassador ; then gentlemen, esquires and knights, two and two ;
judges, knights of the Bath, abbots, barons, bishops, earls, marquises,
the Lord Chancellor, the archbishop of York, Venetian ambassador, archbishop
of Canterbury, French ambassador, two esquires of honor with
robes and caps of estate representing the dukes of Normandy and Aquitaine ;
the mayor of London ; Garter ; Lord Wm. Howard, deputy to his brother
the duke of Norfolk, with the Marshal's rod ; Chas. duke of Suffolk, for
that day high constable of England, bearing the verge of silver ; and the
Queen's chancellor. On both sides of the lords rode serjeants and officers
of arms. The Queen was in an open litter of white cloth of gold, drawn
by two palfreys in white damask. She wore a surcoat and mantle of white
cloth of tissue, the latter furred with ermines. Her hair was hanging down,
but on her head was a coif with a circlet of rich stones. A canopy was
borne over her by four knights. After the Queen came lord Borough,
her chamberlain ; Sir Wm. Coffyn, master of her horses, leading a spare
horse, with a side saddle ; seven ladies in crimson velvet and cloth of gold ;
a chariot containing the old duchess of Norfolk, and the old "Marquesse
Dorset" ; other ladies and gentlewomen in chariots and on horseback, and
lastly the Guard, in coats of goldsmith's work. Along the road there were
many pageants, which are fully described, representing mythological and
allegorical subjects. The Cross in Cheapside, and the conduits there and
in Fleet Street, and Ludgate and Temple Bar, were newly repaired and
painted. At the Cross, Master Baker, the recorder, made a speech, and presented
her with 1,000 marks in the name of the city. The children of
St. Paul's school were placed on a scaffold erected at the east end of
St. Paul's, and repeated poetry in honor of the King and Queen. The
litter was carried into Westminster Hall, when she alighted and took her
place at the high dais under the cloth of estate. A service of spice and
"suttilties," with ypocras and other wines, was offered to her, which she
sent to her ladies. After thanking those who had attended on her she
withdrew to her chamber in the White Hall, and afterwards went secretly
in her barge to the King at his manor of Westminster.
Whitsunday, June 1. The mayor, aldermen, sheriffs, and councillors left
the city for Westminster at 7 a.m. Between eight and nine the Queen came
into the Hall, and stood under the cloth of estate ; and then the King's chapel
and the monks of Westminster came in with rich copes, with many bishops
and abbots. The Queen then went to the high altar of Westminster,
accompanied by the aldermen, barons, dukes and earls, bishops, &c. The
marquis of Dorset bore the sceptre ; the earl of Arundel, the rod of ivory
and the dove ; and the earl of Oxford, high chamberlain, the crown. The
duke of Suffolk, being high steward of England for that day, bare a long white
rod, and lord Wm. Howard the rod of the marshalship. The Queen wore a
surcoat and robe of purple velvet, furred with ermine, wearing her hair with a
coif and circlet as on the Saturday. Four of the Cinque Ports bore the canopy
over her. The bishops of London and Winchester bare up the laps of her robe,
and her train was borne by the old duchess of Norfolk, many other ladies
following. She rested awhile in a rich chair between the choir and high altar,
and then proceeded to the altar, where the archbishop of Canterbury crowned
her with the crown of St. Edward, which being heavy, was taken off again, and
the crown made for her put on. After mass was performed, she received the
Sacrament, and offered at St. Edward's shrine. The company returned to
Westminster Hall in the same order, the Queen being supported by the earl
of Wiltshire and lord Talbot, deputy for the earl of Shrewsbury.
The order and sitting at dinner :—
The duke of Suffolk was high steward. Lord Wm. earl marshal, as deputy
for his brother. The earl of Oxford, high chamberlain. The earl of Essex,
carver. The earl of Sussex, sewer. The earl of Arundel, chief butler. The
earl of Derby, cupbearer. Lord Lisle, panter. Lord of Burgayne, chief larder.
Lord Bray, almoner. The mayor of Oxford kept the buttery bar. Thos.
Wiat was chief sewer for his father, Sir Henry. The countess of Oxford,
widow, and the Countess of Worcester, stood beside the Queen's chair,
"which divers times in the dinner time did hold a fine cloth before the
Queen's face when she list to spit or do otherwise at her pleasure." The
archbishop of Canterbury sat on the Queen's right, and at her feet, under
the table, two gentlewomen. The first course was brought in by the duke
of Suffolk and Lord Wm. Howard, on horseback, the serjeants-of-arms, the
sewer, and knights of the Bath. Account of the persons sitting at the
different tables, and the number of dishes. The King and divers ambassadors
looked on from a little closet out of the cloister of St. Stephen's.
After dinner, wafers and ypocras were served ; and when the Queen had
washed, the company meanwhile standing, the table was taken up, and the
earl of Rutland brought up the surnape, which was drawn by Master Rede,
marshal of the Hall. The earl of Sussex then brought a void of spice and
confections, and the mayor of London a standing cup of gold, which she
gave him after drinking therefrom. When she departed to her chamber,
she gave the canopy to the barons of the Cinque Ports ; and then the mayor,
and noblemen and gentlemen, departed, for it was six o'clock.
On Monday there were jousts at the tilt before the King's Gate. The
mayor and his brethren had a goodly standing ; but there were few spears
broken, as the horses would not couple.
On Wednesday the King sent for the mayor and his brethren to Westminster,
and thanked them.
On the next leaf is a plan of the arrangement of the tables, with drawings
of the Queen and archbishop of Canterbury at table, and the King looking
on from the closet.

603. Sir Anthony Babyngton to Cromwell.
Reminds Cromwell that he asked him in behalf of his son John
Babyngton, some time servant to my lord Cardinal, that he might be farmer
of the prebend of Rampton, Notts. The prebend is now in possession of
Mr. Westbe, (fn. 6) clerk of the Closets, who has promised the farm to Mich.
Stanhop, and cannot recede. Mr. Westbe, however, might be got to
exchange with Dr. Fox for the prebend of Osboldwyke in Yorkshire,
giving a pension for the difference in value, till Fox gets other promotion,
and then Fox could let it to his son ; or Westbe might get other promotion,
and resign to a friend of Cromwell's, who would let it to his son. Will
give Cromwell 100s. ; and if Cromwell can get the advowson, and present
his uncle's son, Thos. Babyngton, a scholar in Trinity Hall, Cambridge, will
give him 40l. Dethek in the Peak, 8 June.

This 8th day of June, at 9 a.m., received letters from Mons. de
Beavois, with others in the same packet, from the Scotch king for Henry, sent
herewith. About 60 broken men of Scotland did run at certain nags of the
garrison in Norhamshire, but missed their purpose, and were pursued by
the Borderers back into Scotland, where they took four of them prisoners,
and 12 others, with 40 noote and 60 sheep. No other harm has been
done on the Borders. The ships of Newcastle have taken two vessels
freighted with Shotts men goods (Scotchmen's goods?). Warkworth, the

You were so good as to have a privy seal sent in my behalf to John
Lyngen the elder, to appear before you Octab. Trin. As he thinks that the
privy seal refers only to his fine for not being knighted, he will appear ; and
as nothing was done before Whitsuntide for taking the oaths to the King's
succession by his commission, I shall be so much engaged in it that I shall
not be able to be in London the first day of term to declare to you his
abominable and beastly living, for the continuance whereof he and his
naughty queans are accursed ; also his unreasonable demeanor towards my
sister, his wife, and his children, who, but for their friends, would have been
famished. I beg you will not let him depart till I can be there, the first
Saturday of this Trinity Term. 8 June. Signed.

608. Cochlæus to James V.
A printed book entitled "An expediat laicis legere Novi Testamenti
libros lingua vernacula. Ad serenissimum Scotiæ Regem Jacobum V. Disputatio
inter Alexandrum Alesium, Scotum, et Johannem Cochlæum,
Germanum. Anno Domini MDXXXIII."
Eight years ago two English apostates, who had learned German at
Wittenberg, translated Luther's Testament into English, and had 3,000 copies
printed at Cologne, of which Cochlæus warned the King, and now warns
James against Alesius' machinations. Refers to the evils caused in Germany
by the reading of Luther's translation, and the errors contained therein.
The archbishop of Treves caused the booksellers who sold them to be
thrown into the Rhine with the books. Mentions a lady named Argula, who
offered to discuss theology with the university of Ingoldstadt, and was
banished with her husband by Wm. duke of Bavaria. If a new translation
were made, the people would read for the purpose of deciding between the
Papists and Lutherans, and the majority, being carnal, would decide that the
latter better understood St. Paul.
The latter part of the book is in the form of a dialogue between Alesius
Thinks Alesius is now concealed at Wittenberg, and that he will translate
Luther's books, and send them to Scotland. Merchandise from Germany
should be examined on its being landed. Ex Dresda Misniæ ad Albim,
6 idus Junii 1533.
609. John Lord Scrope to Henry VIII.
The abbot of St. Mary's still makes difficulties about granting him
the reversion of the stewardship of his lands on the death of lord Conyers.
Cromwell's letter to him was addressed on the back, "To the prior of
St. Mary's abbey," and not abbot ; for which he "made danger" to receive
it ; but at last broke it. After reading it, he said he had written to Cromwell
that lord Conyers was steward ; that he would be loth to create more
unkindness, and he asked Cromwell's advice what to do. This letter was but
a repetition of the request ; but he would like it stated in Cromwell's letter
that he acted by Cromwell's advice. Refers Cromwell to his uncle Sir
Thos. Clyfforde. York, 9 June. Signed.

20 tall men and good archers of his tenants to be put in rediness as footmen,
well harnessed after the manner of the country in white jackets, with my
bage (badge) of the legges of Man of red cloth before on the brest, one
behind on their backs, and pass to the Isle in company with 20 other
persons that I have written to Roger Sherbourn to prepare." 9 June,
25 Hen. VIII.
611. Henry Earl Of Essex to Cromwell.
Sir Adrian Fortescu and others who are bound with him to the King in
100 marks, call extremely upon him to save them harmless. Requests him
to be a mean to the King that he may have out the said obligation, and to
obtain licence for him to change the fair day of Hoddesdon in Herts, which
will be a great ease for the inhabitants of the town and county. Stanstede,

612. Launcelot Colyns to Cromwell.
I send your obligation, sealed according to your letters. I request
you to be good master to the dean and chapter of York for the money due to us
of a prebend at Beverley. It has always been received by the residenciaries
at York ; and Master Dalby, late provost of Beverley, accounted for it in two
vacation times. The statutes of Beverley show that the provost has no
claim to it. The chapter of York is called in the Exchequer for a disme
granted to the King out of the church of Tikhill, which ought to be paid by
the abbot and convent of Westminster. The church of York had never
penny there this 200 years. Mr. Chaloner, our "feode" man, will resort to
you on this subject. My lord Dean and I desire your acceptance of a fee of
40s. a year, enclosed, which should have been passed under our seal but for
the Dean's absence. York, 9 June. Signed.
P. 1. Add. : To his right hon., &c. friend, Mr. Thomas Cromwell.
613. Sir Edw. Baynton to Lord Rochford.
The Queen's coronation is honorably passed "as ever was, if all old
and ancient men say true." Mr. Will. à Brereton has been here since your
departure about the matter your Lordship put me in trust in. "The news
that came last night with your Lordship's letter be marvellously mused on,"
but they are too high for me. "And as for pastime in the Queen's chamber
was never more. If any of you that be now departed have any ladies that
they thought favored you, and somewhat would mourn at parting of their
servants, I can no whit perceive the same by their dancing and pastime they
do use here." There is a hawk called a merlyon, that I think is not yet
ready to fly at the larks in this country. Begs him to thank my lord of
Norfolk for his token. Tell him my lord of Suffolk is loth to let fall a
noble unless he took up a royal for it. "The matter doth partly appear in
a letter by my Lady your wife's, or else by some others, I am sure, that hath
advertised him by their letters." Will not write at present "the circumstances
of the way." Greenwich, 9 June.

614. The Bailly Of Troyes to John Du Bellay, Bishop Of Paris.
The king [of England] desires him to write to Du Bellay, what he
also writes to the King and the Grand Master, that it has been declared in
open Consistory at Rome, on the part of the king [of France], that he would
use all his power to resist the Lutherans, and even attack them if necessary.
This King is very illpleased, and says it is done to break his intelligence
with the Germans, and to make the Pope and Emperor independent of
them. He says that the French king has been badly counselled and
badly served ; and that he has been too anxious for the interview, which the
Pope ought to desire more than he. Replied that the interview was chiefly
sought by the King on Henry's account, and there have been no practices,
except about the marriage, of which he has long known. Has never seen
him so angry, partly on account of the news from Rome, that the Pope is pushing
his affair ; for though he has promised to do nothing of importance until
the interview, that means that he will not give judgment ; but all will be prepared.
If it goes against Henry, does not know whether he will find his
people as obedient as he thinks. He does well to entertain the chief persons
of the kingdom, so that the people will have no head to lead them. Things
may not go so far as this, but you know the people of this country, "dont
il n'est pas besoin que beaucoup ayent le pouvoir dont ils ont le voulloir."
The bearer, M. de Fleury, will tell him more. Encloses a letter from
M. de Beauvois. Wishes to leave England, as he is never well for more than
a week. Will have been here six months on the 22nd.
