26 May.811. The Privy Council.
A. P. C., 170.
Meeting at Greenwich, 26 May. Present: Chancellor, Suffolk, Privy Seal, Essex, Winchester, Gage, Wingfield, Paget, Baker. Business: — Letter to my lord of Hertford touching slaughter of two of the King's subjects by the Spaniards at Newcastle, requiring him to take order with Gamboa for their punishment; also signifyng that two Spaniards of Gamboa's band had each received 50s. here, to be rebated off their wages.

26 May.812. Furnishing Galley Slaves.
Soc. Ant.
Procl., ii. 151.
Mandate to the mayor and sheriffs of London to proclaim that, being informed that, notwithstanding wholesome laws to preserve the people from idleness, "the mother and root of all mischiefs," there remain, especially about London, a great number of "ryffyns and vagabondes," able to work but living by theft and falsehood in play, whereby simple young men are polled and undone, and by "other detestable vices and fashions commonly used at the Banke and such like naughty places, where they much haunt and in manner lie nightly for the accomplishment and satisfying of their vile, wretched, and filthy purposes," the King intends to use all such "ruffyns, vagabondes, masterles men, common players and evil disposed persons" to serve him in these wars in certain galleys to be armed forth before 1 June next; and he commands that no person shall name any man to be his servant who is not his household servant, bailiff, keeper or other lawful servant. Westm., 26 May 37 Hen. VIII.

26 May.813. The Privy Council to Lord Poynings.
R. O.
St. P.. x. 445.
The King perceives by his letters dated yesterday at 10 a.m. the assembly of the French to besiege the pieces under his charge; and now requires him to use victuals as though the siege were already laid, to employ all his labourers and induce the soldiers also to work at the fortifications and the removal of things outside the town which may be hurtful, as mounts and trenches, and to spare his powder. Of powder and other things lately required a refreshing shall be sent from hence, but the King marvels that of the 40 last of powder he left there but 20 remain, when there has been no "occasion to spend any but at the only camisado," and thinks the master of the ordnance to blame if the remnant of the powder is wet and the bow strings rotten His Majesty also marvels that there are no handguns, considering the number sent from hence, those won at the camisado, and those had directly out of Flanders. Henceforth, Poynings will doubtless see that all things are well husbanded and that every man looks well to his charge.

26 May.814. The Privy Council to Richmond Herald.
R. O.We have communicated your sundry letters to the King, who is informed that the Grave van Odinbergh, inhabiting about Hamborow or Breme, offers to serve him with 10,000 or 15,000 footmen, as appears by a schedule herewith addressed to me, the duke of Suffolk, by Captain Light-maker. You shall repair to the said Grave and assure him he never had to do with a prince that can and will better recompense his service; and learn what number of men and of what sorts he will bring, how and by what day he will bring them to Cales or into England, what money he will require beforehand for their conduct, and what wages for himself and his men. All points to be set forth plainly in writing and sent hither with all diligence, with advertisement of all occurrents.

26 May.815. Tunstall and Sadler to Henry VIII.
R. O.Send letters from the Warden of the West Marches, with others addressed by him to the earl of Lenoux.
The Spaniards make no little exclamation for their wages, and Sr. de Gamboa, their captain general, declares in writing that 2,183l. 6s. 8d. is due to them as being unpaid both for April and May. By the book, lately received from the Council, of the strangers' wages and days of payment, it seems that Gamboa and his company were fully paid to 30 April, and that they have received 595l. more than they declare, besides what they owe for the haquebutes which the King provided. Beg to know the state of the reckoning, the prests paid before they came hither, and the prices of the haquebutes "to be defaulked of their wages." Have meanwhile been enforced to give them another 1,000 mks. in prest this day (so that since arriving at Newcastell they have had 2,000 mks.) to avoid inconvenience betwixt the inhabitants and them, "which agree not all the best, the cause whereof is alleged to be want of money." Darneton. 26 May 1545. Signed.

(fn. 1) Letter written to the town and hundred of Reigate to permit lord William Howard, appointed to serve upon the seas, to take 10 of his own or the duke of Norfolk's men, and yet the town and hundred to keep ready the number appointed to them by the commissioners. Jo. Bapt. de Sambitores, factor of Chr. Garcia, in Flanders, had letters to the mayor of Sandwich and John Johnson of Thanet for certain oils saved out of a Portuguese ship that perished beside Sandwich.

27 May.817. Otwell Johnson to John Johnson.
R. O.London, 27 May 1545: — Money sent to his sister and Harryson, in all 140l. Reserved 20l. in hope of some profit thereof "the same being old angels of full weight without remedy."

R. O.Glapthorne, 27 May 1545: — Perceives by his letter of the 13th that he was then going into Flanders. Has received from her brother Otwell 140l. (upon days specified) and paid Barth Hose 20l. If Wm. Laurence, when he comes, says that he has wool, she will not trust him too much, but send Richard to see it. Will "stay all this town wool and Polbrocke." Hopes to get quails to fatten against the coming of her uncle Anthony and aunt "who will be here shortly after your coming home. Your two little maidens and I am in health, the Lord be praised! But I have had an impediment this 4 days that many would have their wives to have it all the year; for 4 days I could not speak. It came with a cold." Commendations from "my brother Robart and my sister, my brother Breten, my brother Laurance and my cousin James; all these have been with me all these holy days."

St. P., x. 446.
In pursuance of the King's pleasure signified by the Council's letters, because the Emperor's commissioners had been last week at Callys, on Monday last (fn. 2) all returned to Graveling and there have since been examining the articles delivered, taking general causes in the forenoon, and particular in the afternoon, and spending one day in the complaints of one side and the next day in those of the other. The general complaints on the Emperor's side are (1) that 4d. capitage or head money is demanded of the Emperor's subjects at Dover and Gravesend; (2) that of late years ships are compelled to unlade at London in the midst of the river and to hire lighters for the purpose; (3) that on arrival at London the master of the ship is first bound to declare what he brings and to pay 6d., then the merchant must declare and pay 8d, then, after paying the whole custom, they must take a bill of acquittance for the same, price 2d., then comes an officer who seals the wares and must have 1d., and even then the merchandise may not be put to sale until the searchers have seen it and taken away the seal; (4) that the King's customs are greater than they were 100 years past, when 3d. in the pound paid all charges; in proof of which it is required that the books of record may be seen. Have answered: — (1) That the capitage (which the Emperor's commissioners alleged to be taken of the Emperor's subjects "for the redemption of their heads") is a charge taken this 100 years and more for the search and other duties. (2) That customs were paid long before the fifty years mentioned in the treaty of 1495, and may be levied in any reasonable way; and because merchandise was being privily discharged at houses upon the river side, the order was made, for English and strangers alike, that it must be discharged by lighters or boats. In argument the Emperor's commissioners insisted that this was a new charge, and that they might likewise make laws to meet with frauds of English merchants; and to this the writers agreed, provided it was done bona fide and laid no new charge upon English merchants, and yet, the place of custom at Andwerpe being where it is, they could not have that just cause that the King had. (3) As to declaring, sealing, etc., the writers answered that a table of rates was set in the custom house, and as to the small demands of the officers they had written into England. The Emperor's men pressed to see the records showing what customs were taken in old time, and offered to show their books in return.
Of the private matters that of Jasper Duchy was taken first, and the writers, after showing that the King might justly arrest the herrings and that the Emperor's men used his subjects so in wars with France when he was yet at peace, said that part of the herrings belonged to Florentines, whose matters could not be heard at this Diet, and considering the King's good affection to Jasper Duche it was advisable for the said Jasper to divide his cause from the others and to give in a more reasonable account than 9,000l. Fl. The Emperor's commissioners answered that they would write to Jasper Duche to sever his portion from the others, if possible, but they were all the Emperor's subjects, enfranchised at Andwerpe. In the matter of the jewels the writers alleged sentence already given and the Emperor s commissioners were very earnest and talked largely, Chapuis especially. Not much has yet been said in the matter of Burgos, and the writers have not yet perused certain writings exhibited by the other side.
Have received answer to their general articles of complaint: — (1) that the import of 5 per cent, contrary to the treaties, on wares carried between Flanders and France in war time when the King was at peace, was justified by the war; (2) that the impost of 1 per cent, would be abolished when the new burdens laid in England were removed; (3) that, as to the restraint of harness bought in the Emperor's countries and stoppage of that bought in Italy, the laws against it were old, and like restraint was used in England forbidding horse, leather and almost all merchandise to be carried out without special licence; and (4) as to excessive customs and unlawful search the customers had been written to.
As to our special articles, they argue that only complaints which have arisen about the arrest, or since or near that time, should be examined; but they have written to the Queen, and meanwhile offer to write to places where causes have long depended, that justice may be done without delay. As to the matter of Mr. Forman, they say that the Emperor has written to the King that certain of his books may be exhibited, or at least a certificate thereof sent. They have promised to deliver all their answers in writing, and if so they shall receive the like of us. Graveling, 28 May 1545. Signed: Tho. Westm': Will'm Petre: Edward Carne: S. Vaughan: T. Chambrelain.
P.S. — These letters were finished, and we ready to meet the other commissioners today, when it was told us that George Elyott's son, in the lodging of me Sir Edw. Carne, with whom and with his father all our servants were daily conversant, is fallen sick of the plague. Thereupon the Emperor's commissioners mean to depart today to Burborough and we to Callys. We would know where to meet with them henceforth; for they will not come to Callys because the plague is not ceased there, and it is in Dunkirk and many other places of these countries. They sent word this morning that they had received more ample commission touching the place, we having found fault that it was restricted to Graveling only.

28 May.826. Petre to Paget.
R. O.Pray help us to an advertisement of such things as were contained in the schedule of our letters which we lately sent to the Council, and if you would cause Mr. Chancellor of the Tenth to order a perfect book to be made of customs, subsidies and other duties paid by the Emperor's subjects, with some annotation upon the grounds and antiquity of the same, it would ease us much. Because they still require so earnestly to see the records of 100 years past, which, they say, will show that more is exacted than the treaty allows, I desire to know whether we shall grant that the said records may be seen in England. They offer to have theirs seen if any case so require. Begs to be commended to the lord Chancellor, and eftsoons prays him "to remember those declarations to be made by th'Exchequour." Graveling, 28 May.
P.S. — These letters, were sealed and we ready to go to meet the ambassadors again, when George Eliott, who is here for London and was with us yesterday until 10 p.m., sent word that his son is fallen sick of the plague, hard by my lodging. Mr. Kerne is lodged in the same house, and our servants have been in company both with father and son. We sent word of this chance to the ambassadors, who this morning received a larger commission as to the place, and we intend to disperse some of our servants and return to Calice until we know the King's pleasure touching the place of our next meeting; for they are unwilling to come to Calice, because plague is not ceased there. "I thought myself ever a tall man and not to fear over much the plague till this morning. I was not more afraid of the like in all my life, the thing cometh so suddenly and so dangerously."
Pray advise us what to answer in the matter of the wrecks, in which the treaty is plain against the English usage. "We cannot all imagine how to answer in that matter with any colour of reason." Have I done well to address these letters to the Council? The matters seems too long and tedious to be addressed to the King.

28 May.827. Stephen Vaughan to Paget.
R. O.This day, a chaplain of Shepuys, of 60 years old, who has been long with him in England, came to tell Vaughan that affection to England bound him to reveal that two Frenchmen, John de Congre and Roger de Prate, learnt every secret in England and hourly signified it into France. Once, said the chaplain, he was passing with them between Dover and Calles when a Flemish ship boarded their passage and, knowing Congre to be a Frenchman, notwithstanding his passport, searched him and took away certain letters which he and Roger de Prate had written into France "signifying what provision the King's Majesty had made against France, and that the same had prepared a great number of ships to land an army of men in Brytaigne." The chaplain added that one Thomson "dwelling amongst the bottle makers besides Powles," told him "that he (qu. Congre?) hath used all these wars to be a great conveyer over of money out of England." This Thomson, said the chaplain, has dwelt with Congre, "or with his master in France, and knoweth all his secrets;" and there is nothing so secret in England but John Congre and Roger de Prate and his wife know it and signify it into France. Gravelyng, 28 May.
P.S. — The chaplain says he has at St Omer's the letters which were taken in the foresaid passage, and will send them to me; when I will send them straight to the Council.

Meeting at Greenwich, 29 May. Present: Chancellor, Suffolk, Privy Seal, Essex, Admiral, Winchester, Gage, Wingfield and Paget. Business : — Upon the murder of John Farnold, servant to Sir Geo. Bayneham, in Wiltshire, letters were written to the sheriff and justices of the peace to make enquiry, and to send up John Smith, of Wroughton, and Thos. Fluell. Ric. Pokoke had warrant to Tuke for 23l. 10s. 4d., for conduct of 48 prisoners from Boloyne to Depforde. The earl of the Isles in Scotland, by warrant to Mr. Carewe, had 250l. in reward. One St. Clere, declaring that in Devon and Cornwall certain gold is ignorantly molten with the tin, and so unawares conveyed abroad to the profit of strangers, had letters to Sir Thos. Denys, Sir Hugh Pollard and Mr. Stukeley in Devon, and to Sir Hugh Trevanyon, Mr. St. Aubyne and John Militon in Cornwall to permit him "to put his cunning in ure" for one month, and to certify the result.
29 May.829. The Privy Council to Thirlby and Others.
R. O.Having considered the "griefs exhibited unto you by the Emperor's commissioners," whereof you sent an abstract, and conferred with the officers of the Exchequer and with the customers, comptrollers and searchers, we find that the sums (other than subsidy and custom) taken by officers, originated by the good will of the givers and have continued time out of mind, as appears by the bills (fn. 3) of the officers (copies herewith). If the merchant stranger will have one to write the bill of contents of his merchandise he should pay for it, as the Englishman does. If the ship, which must be searched at Gravesend, arriving at midnight with fair tide and weather, and loth to anchor until day, will have the searcher "arise at midnight, etc.," he should have somewhat for his pains. We marvel at their complaining of the searchers receiving a groat or two when we should rather complain of their corrupting the King's officers and conveying away for the gift of a groat or two things which ought to pay custom. If they think themselves grieved with these trifles which they pay for their own commodity, "let them agree to order greater impost wherewith the King's subjects be charged in those parts for like causes, and semblable redress shall be done here." And so must you likewise answer for the anchorage, for which the King's subjects pay twice as much in the Emperor's dominions. They do not pay for the packing of tin and lead, but for the numbering and weighing of it, as the King's subjects do, and have done long before the year mentioned in the treaty. For subsidy and custom there is matter of record to be shown since King Richard II's time. The point of the treaty which they stand upon, viz., that the subjects of either Prince "be like gently and freely used in other's country" is not to be understood for their payments, but for their liberty and safety; for "the Princes convented that neither should set none other new imposts than that were paid before such a year." If the dukes of Brabant had not given certain exemptions to our nation, and the Princes had not convented not to make new imposts as aforesaid, they might have taken the same imposts. "As for the matter of the wrecks, which you think, by the treaty, will be hard to be defended, we think therein as you do; and yet the King's Mate thinketh not reason they should so use and interpret things at their will, that when they shall think the treaty serveth for them that then it shall be good and they will use it, and when it maketh against them, then they will not understand it but use cauteles and sinister interpretations at their pleasure. And therefore his Majesty would not you should so readily condescend that the treaty is this or that unless you see a semblable conformity in them for such things as you see by the treaty maketh for his Majesty; and in no wise to grant to any one thing except they will agree to another, and if they by theyr wont understandings will interprete the words at theyr pleasure, you must do the semblable."
The King having important things to be done by "you, Mr. Vaughan," in Flanders, requires you to prepare to depart thither forthwith; which departure must be declared, at your next assembly, to the Emperor's commissioners.

R. O.Shortly after the departure of Hams from Gravelyng I spoke again with Chapuys' chaplain, who said the letters taken about John Conger, of which I wrote by Hams, were written about the time of the King's going over to Bulleign, and that the same John de Conger and Roger de Prat, before the King's going over, wrote to the captain of Bulleyn that, notwithstanding the bruit of the King's army going to Montrell, he should beware of Bulleyn. The chaplain also said that Tomson, the bottle maker, keeping shop by Pawlys Churche, was followed one night at midnight carrying a great bag of money of Conger's which brake besides St. Andrew's Church in Estchepe "and part of the money ran out." Tomson was then bringing it aboard a ship of Conger's and has been a great counsellor of Conger, but should not be meddled with at present lest it stay Conger's return into England. "If Thomson be well examined, the King's Majesty may, notwithstanding passport given to John Conger, 'season' upon his person and goods for the treasons that he hath wrought against the same."

Meeting at Greenwich, 30 May. Present: Chancellor, Suffolk, Privy Seal, Essex, Winchester, St. John, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Paget, Baker. Business: — The King, being shown copies of the books of the numbers of men serving in his camp at Boloyne and in the wards of the duke of Norfolk and lord Privy Seal at Monstrell, and therewith the numbers certified in every shire, it was, for the "repulse of th'enemies bruiting to invade," devised that the duke of Suffolk should attend the King with the shires hereabouts, the lord Privy Seal with the Western men and the duke of Norfolk with Norfolk and those parts, to whom letters were addressed for his repair to Court.

The King has seen letters from Casseles to Sadler, the one containing an offer to kill the Cardinal and the other excusing their change of purpose for sending one to meet Sadler on the Borders, requiring that John Forster, who as a prisoner may go without suspicion, may be sent to them. As to the first point, the King, reputing the fact not meet to be set forward by him, and yet not misliking the offer, thinks that Sadler should write to Cassillis that it does not seem meet to be communicated to the King, but that if he (Sadler) were in Cassillis's place he would do what he could for its execution, thinking thereby to do the King acceptable service and to benefit Scotland. As to sending Forster, albeit their proceedings herein seem to conform to their doings heretofore, the King will practise with them, and Forster must desire them to write what they would have him report. If they allege danger of interception, Forster can answer that, being in cipher (which Cassillis has), the letters cannot be read; and he must decipher their intent and learn what they look for out of France, and when and where it shall land. The earls and Douglas need not doubt the King's favour, as both written not long ago to Douglas and signified last of all to Cassillis.
Marvel at Gamboa's altercation for the wages and prests, of which the Council sent a true copy and now send it again, for there is no other; whereby it appears not that they are paid for all the month of April, some being paid only to the 16th. Hertford shall tell Gamboa that the King "museth" at his behaviour in this, when the copy was certified by the whole Council of Calais. Let Gamboa put his contention in writing. The price of the hacquebut is 16s., as Mr. Hobby, now there, can inform you; and also of the number of the Spaniards, for he was at their last mustering at Calais. We send Mr. Sadler a bill of money paid here upon wages, coats and conduct, and for prests to the strangers at their departing hence. Mr. Knyvet brings the bargains made with all the horsemen strangers, except the Almayns, who are not yet all come hither. Greenwich, 30 May 1545.

a.p.c., 176.
Meeting at Greenwich, 31 May. Present: Chancellor, Suffolk, Privy Seal, Essex, Winchester, St. John, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Paget, Baker. Business:—Sir Ric. Gresham and other merchants showed letters declaring the stay of Englishmen's goods in Spain and their reference to the Council of the Indyas, confirmed by —— Churche, who came in post out of Spain. Letters addressed to Mr. Harvel, ambassador in Venice, to return a bill of exchange given by Acelyne Salvago to Wm. Thomas, making it payable to Sir Ant. Browne. Instructions, &c, delivered to Sir Robert Townesende, serjeant at law, sent to supply the place of justice of Chester, &c, which Sir Nic. Hare had; with letters to the President of the Welsh Council. Marche, of Calays, who received the King's fells, tallow, &c, last year in the camp, had letters to repair hither and declare his account. Upon a supplication by the factor of Quintanadoen, a Spaniard, against Hawkyns of Plymouth, who declared that he could prove "colouring" of Frenchmen's goods, it was thought that the lord Chancellor, returning that night to London, should send Mr. Knight, clerk of Parliament, to the Emperor's ambassador, with Hawkyns and Mr. Windeham, who had also taken a ship challenged by the Spaniards.

R. O.
St. P. v. 451.
Being appointed lieutenant here in the North, is bound to devise how the Scots, who will never make or keep agreement without compulsion, may be brought to conformity; which can only be done by invasion, and not until victuals come. At Bartholomewtide, with 1,500 horsemen and 2,000 or 3,000 footmen, for six weeks, over and above the ordinary garrison and the 800 Clevois not yet come, furnished with biscuit, beer, sack and cheese for 10,000 men for two months, Hertford would bring the Scots "on this side Fright" into such misery that they could not annoy this realm. His plan is to get Hume castle, fortify the footmen in the church at Kelso, and then devastate the country round. With garrisons at Hume, Kelso and Wark, the March and Tividall would be kept obedient and Lodian in great subjection. Suggests that when the labourers have finished Tynmought they might work at Wark, which, with a convenient furniture of victual and an increased garrison, may do more annoyance to Scotland than Barwik, Norram and all the rest of the frontiers. Commendations to my Lady. Daruntun, last of May.

All sent herewith. Dernton, 31 May 1545. Signed.
P.S.—A letter herewith from the Warden of the East Marches shows how Barnes has demeaned himself, whom Wilson lately made privy to the practices he "had to do on the Borders." Now, after examination and the matter proved, Hertford intends to cause Barnes to be hanged.

R. O.A ship of Hamburg, containing barley from Copenhagen, Peter Meyers master, proceeding recently to trade in Scotland, having heard nothing of the King's warning, was stopped on the seas by the King's ships and brought to Hilge Eilant on pretence that the barley belonged to Scots. Are certified that no part of the barley belonged to Scots, and as their citizens sailed from Denmark ignorant of the said warning, and bent, like other cities of the German Hanse, upon their accustomed trade, and in friendship with the King's subjects, they pray the King, of his clemency, to restore the said ship and goods.

R. O.
St. P., x. 452.
Wrote on the 16th inst. Letters have since appeared, from Andrinople, of 4 May, mentioning that the Turk will not move this year, but has dissolved his camp and returns to Constantinople. It is affirmed that truce shall follow between the Emperor and Turk for 5 years, on condition that the Emperor sends an ambassador to the Turk "by all August." The Bishop of Rome goes on fortifying his towns. Of the Council at Trent is no mention although sundry prelates are there assembled, among whom is Cardinal Pole living in continual fear. All men are in expectation to know what will follow of the Diet at Urmes, the Protestants being impatient of living in perpetual suspicion of their adversaries. Here is come Signor Ludovico de Larme's father, who has been troubled in Rome for his son's cause and is urged by the Bishop to remove his son from your Majesty's service; but both father and son are constant to persevere in it. Ludovico entertains a good band above the captains allowed him and much desires to be set to work; and the rest of your captains declare their readiness. The rectors of Vincentia lately commanded Philippo Pini, your captain, to depart out of the Venetian dominion, but, finding that this was done without the Signory's consent, I wrote to the rectors, and Pini has returned. The Venetians are jealous of any assembly or disorder of arms, but remain very friendly towards your Majesty. Venice, 31 May 1545.

31 May.843. Edmond Harvel to Russell.
R. O.In pursuance of Russell's letters of 30 April, will help Anthony Bassan and his brethren "for the sublevacion of ther tancis in this citee" when more fully instructed in the matter, as he has declared to their brother. Perceives that the King is greatly bent to the wars against France and that the Frenchmen bruit an invasion of England with 60,000 men. That nation being "more glorious of words than of deeds," their open power is not to be feared; but they are reported to design the occupation of some place in England, some think Hampton. Considering how all English ports are fortified, and what vigilance is used, such discourses seem vain. The Turk has licensed his men of war and is reported to have concluded a truce with the Christian princes for five years, on condition that the Emperor sends an ambassador to him before August next. Letters out of Flanders report the taking of Ardres and of two French galleys. Venice, 31 May 1545.
