Nov. 16 Report to the King from Treasurer Danby on the petition of Sir John Robinson for a grant of the Wardenship of Farming Woods and other things, the remains of the Forest of Rockingham, co. Northampton. On reference from me the Attorney General has reported that the office of Master Forester or Wardenship of the Forest of Rockingham was divided in the fourth year of Charles I. into several parts. One part thereof was granted to the Earl of Westmorland's trustees for three lives, one other part to Lord Montagu of Boughton for three lives ; the other part, being small, was reserved to be granted to Lord Mordaunt, after[wards] Earl of Peterborough, who enjoyed it but never passed any letters patent for it. Upon the Restoration the present Earl of Peterborough, having sold the lands he had in that part of the forest to Sir John Robinson, did consent that he should have the Wardenship of Farming Woods and bailiwick of Orlingbury Hundred, which was but part of the thing desired [by Robinson], which, being observed by Sir C. Harbord in his report the grant was stayed because the Earl of Peterborough had not consented to the rest of the things desired. Since that time said Earl has consented to a grant of the rest to petitioner. A grant may therefore be fitly made to Robinson of the wardenship of Farming Woods, the bailiwick of the Hundred of Orlingbury and manor of Brigstock (except Goddington Wood) and the receivership of the Castleward rents, either for 31 years or for term of years determinable upon three lives.
