Date. Nature and Substance of the Entry. Reference.
April 2. Treasurer Danby to Sir Job Charleton, Chief Justice at Chester. There have been continual disputes and controversies between the Commissioners for co. Denbigh about the decays of Ruthin as since the Restoration they have failed to assess [thereon] the full charge and proportion of money limited by several acts of Parliament. By reason hereof there is an arrear on all former taxes. The particulars of such arrears are enclosed [missing] and ought to be forthwith levied on the said counties. There have been several endeavours used to compose and reconcile said differences, but nothing yet effected therein. Upon the desire and by consent of both parties concerned I refer the whole examination hereof to you for you to call them before you at the next general sessions for the county, and cannot doubt you will finally determine it, being an important service both to the King and country. Ibid, p. 172.

Instructions from Treasurer Danby to the Customs Commissioners, in reply to their presentments of March 25 last. (1). I approve of such of the securities of the Collectors of London and of the outports as are certified as good by Henry Potkins, examiner of the sufficiency of said securities. Where he notes them as insufficient or defective you are to require fresh ones. (2). Charles Orchard, Customer of Barnstaple, is to undertake the collection there for his patent salary in the room of Jacob Westcombe. You are to allow him 10l. per an. for a clerk. As you say he is reputed a very good officer you are also to depute him as Collector at Bideford, loco John Hill, late Collector. (3). The Collector and Comptroller of Milford and riding Surveyor of South Wales having certified the place of John Daniel, waiter at Milford, to be useless, his place is to be retrenched and his salary of 5l. per an. is to be proportioned to three tidesmen to be settled without any further charge to the King, viz., John Grant at Nangle with 2l. per an. salary, Philip Smith at Pill with 1l. per an. salary, and John Revel at Dale with 2l. per an. salary. (4). Mr. Litcott is to forbear surcharging the Collector of Liverpool with the 10l. which by the Act of Tunnage and Poundage is due for a parcel of undressed cloth imported from the Isle of Man by Henry Taylor, same being but of the value of 15s., and being of the manufacture of said isle and imported thence to be milled and so to be returned, and that said Collector be charged only with the Custom ad valorem which he has received. (5). You are to establish the following as the charge for the yearly maintenance of a smack at Yarmouth for the service of that port, viz., 36l. to John Guppy the master, 16l. to a mate, 30l. for 2 men, 45l. 12s. 0d. for victuals at 7d. a day [per man] or total 127l. 12s. 0d. : the establishment to relate to the last quarter or to so much thereof as said smack was employed. The wear and tear (which is not yet agreed) is to be paid out of incidents. (6). You are to make allowance to Mr. William Hutt, merchant, of 10l. 0s. 4¾d. for damage upon a parcel of wrecked hemp and flax, paying him same out of his deposit thereon : you having desired my direction herein because said goods have been out of the custody of the officers. (7). You are to burn for a public terror the two boats at Yarmouth which have been prosecuted at the King's charge by Michael Walford, tide surveyor there, and condemned for smuggling uncustomed goods. A tally is to be struck for discharging the said officer of the King's moiety. (8). I approve of the securities of Thomas Emys as Collector of Penryn (viz., George Robinson and Samuel Emys in 500l.) and of Thomas Tregosse as same of St. Ives (viz., Humphrey Nicoll and James Incledon in 300l.).
