Same to Sir Peter Killegrew, Bart., and John Tregagle, Receivers of the revenues of the Duchy of Cornwall. By the laws and customs of the Stannaries all tin ought to be melted and refined at public and allowed blowing houses. Yet, nevertheless, of late years private melting houses and furnaces have been erected contrary to the said laws : whereby His Majesty is defrauded of his coinage duty and trade discouraged by the underselling of such as steal the said duty. It may be pretended that the nature of some tin may require a re-melting and mixture with other tin to help its fashion. Therefore, to take off all pretence of damage to the tinner and merchant by obstructing the same, and yet to prevent the inconvenience and loss to the King which private melting houses have introduced, you are hereby, in each Coinage Hall, at the King's charge, to erect one furnace, provided the charge exceed not —, where such tin, after coinage, may be re-melted and marked by such merchants or tinners as shall desire rather to do the same there than to return to the blowing house therewith.

Ibid, pp. 449-50.
June 17 Treasurer Clifford to the Earl of Bath, Lord Warden of the Stannaries, concerning the same matter. By the ancient laws of the Stannaries all tin found in Devon and Cornwall ought to be melted at public melting or blowing houses and at no other place, upon pain of forfeiting same and being fined ; and the owner of every public blowing house ought to present and enter his house mark at the same court of the Stannaries before such house may be reputed a public blowing house. And by the same laws and customs the owner of such house ought at every law day to present their blowers to be sworn not only to make good tin but to return at every coinage a true duplicate, on their oaths, of all tin by them melted and for whom : and each tinner is likewise to place his hot mark on his particular tin and not to remove his tin when blown but directly from such blowing house to the respective Coinage Hall of the respective Stannaries : whereby His Majesty's duty formerly was well preserved and the dealer in tin secured from falsified tin. But for some years past the said laws have been neglected and the duty embezzled, and the merchants have often been found to re-melt their tin by reason of the deceitful blowing of the same. For preventing these abuses in the future you are to give order to the owners of the several blowing houses and all tinners and others concerned to observe the said laws. This order is to be published and posted in every coinage town and Stannary Court : offenders in future to be prosecuted. Ibid, p. 447.

All which sums come to 60,228l. 19s. 2d. for interest money and 36,685l. 1s. 0d. for additional charges, making together 96,914l. 2s. 0d. [after abstracting the sums detailed, already paid on several of said items] "which we intend to allow the respective persons that furnished the several sums above mentioned and which is already paid to them by our directions by Sir George Carteret." Further there is due to said Carteret 304l. 19s. 6d. which was remaining in the hands of the East India Company, being part of the security given to them by Sir George Carteret for satisfaction of interest, as by the royal sign manual of 1670, May 7, which granted said sum to Philip Howard, who received the same. Further said Carteret is to be allowed or otherwise discharged of 61,871l. 6s. 6d., being so much more by him imprested to Edward Backwell than the principal money he lent to said Carteret did amount to (as by the order in Council of 1669-70, Mar. 2), for which said Backwell is to account to the King. Further Carteret is to be allowed 4,620l. 16s. 10d. for which the executor of John Colvill is to account, which is claimed by them for further interest due to him [Colvill], he not having stated any account later than as above mentioned. All the said items of allowance amount to 163,711l. 2s. 6d. But out of this sum said Carteret is to discount the several sums, detailed, following, allowed him for two thirds of the single interest mentioned in his second privy seal where single interest was only paid, being cast up by a general order for allowing of 4 per cent. or two thirds of single interest in that privy seal, viz. severally as allowed by him to Sir Thomas Player, Sir John Lawrence, John Packer and Sir Allen Apsley and an item of overcast interest in Alderman Meynell's account, amounting in all to 674l. 11s. 4d., thus leaving the final amount of 163,036l. 10s. 8d. to be allowed as herein.

Sept. 29 : all on the surrender of Culliford's former grant of said office, dated 1667-8, Mar. 9 : said Culliford having petitioned for same in view of the daily care of his office and because "the solicitation of seizures hath heretofore been managed by the Register for the time being, but hath been since thought not so proper to remain both in one hand, whereupon we have been pleased to appoint a particular solicitor for our Customs at Michaelmas, 1671, when we empowered Commissioners to manage said Customs, to the end that what seizures should be at any time prosecuted by the Solicitor, the same being first entered by the Register might appear by his books and so consequently be a check upon the Solicitor."
