Same from same to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular and ratal of the coal works in Plummers Close and Perthill, in the manor of Stratton super Fosse, co. Somerset, with a view to a lease thereof for three lives to the petitioner [? petitioners] as below for three lives at 20s. per an. rent upon surrender of his present estate by copy of Court roll : to be without fine in consideration of such surrender and of petitioners' service in reviving the said rent of 20s. per an. to the Crown.
Prefixing : said Surveyor General's report dated June 28 on the petition from John Tooker and John Salmon for such lease. Sir John Duncombe formerly granted said coalworks to said Tooker by copy of Court Roll for three lives at 20s. per an. rent, "and that having seen Mr. Attorney General's opinion upon a case made by Mr. Long touching the said coal mines, he [said Surveyor General] conceives that in case the same were well granted by copy according to the custom of the manor, if a lease were afterwards granted by a right owner of the manor and enjoyed for any considerable time the custom would be thereby destroyed, and cannot be legally revived. But it not appearing that any such lease had been granted, I [said Surveyor General] thought the customary estate was not lost, and that a new admittance of the said Mr. Tooker would be good, but if there were no such custom, then a grant thereof by copy would be of no effect. And Mr. Long (from whose ancestors the said manor was recovered by Prince Henry as parcel of the Duchy of Cornwall) pretending that there was no such custom as to the said coal mines in Plummers Close and Perthill, I have, upon your Lordship's warrant, made him a constat (the auditor having no record to ground a particular upon) for a lease thereof to be granted to him, if your Lordship shall think fit, for the same three lives by which he holds by copy of Court Roll [viz., of] the tenement called Vaggs (whereof the said Plummers Close is parcel) at the rent of 20s. per an. Now these petitioners [Tooker and Salmon] having possessed themselves by virtue of the said admittance granted by Sir John Duncomb's warrant of the said coal mines in both the said places called Plummers Close and Perthill and paid the said rent of 20s. per an. for three years past and been at great charges in opening and clearing the coalworks there, do humbly desire to have a lease to strengthen their interest, in case the said admittance should prove defective. I do conceive that if the said customory estate be in force, then they may by virtue thereof legally open the said coal mines, and make benefit of the same, giving the tenants reasonable satisfaction for the damage they sustain there, but if there be no such custom in force, then I think a lessee cannot enter upon any of the tenants' land other than his own, without their consent, which is as much as I can say in this case."
Ibid, pp. 369-70.
Warrant from Treasurer Danby to the Farmers of the Law duty to pay 150l. to Auditor Richard Aldworth for making up the three years' accounts of the farm of said duty from 1672, Oct. 23 : to be paid out of the 1,500l. agreed upon as due to the King from said Farmers after their defalcations and allowances.

In case of refusal, etc., you are to levy by distress, or take into custody. Ibid, p. 373.
Same from same to the officers of the Works at Windsor Castle.

"And whereas I being willing to be satisfied by whom the said wall ought to be repaired, did desire his Majesty's Attorney General to examine what records or other matter the said Dean and Canons could produce for their discharge herein." Upon a view of several proceedings in 1606 he has reported that the wall is to be repaired by his Majesty and the said Dean and Canons are to have in the wall so to be repaired such lights for easiments of their houses as antiently they had, which lights are to be by them maintained. You are therefore to repair said wall. Ibid, 374.
