Appending: said report, dated June 16, and signed by Edw. Ward, Sir Tho. Trevor and Sir Jo. Temple. Nothing appears to us why petitioner should not be restored to her own lands of inheritance whereto the Crown by the outlawry of Lord Bellew were only entitled during his life, who is lately deceased, whereby petitioner is become entitled. As to the mortgages of 3,500l. received by her during her late husband's life time out of the rents of her own estate of inheritance, she is not entitled thereto so long as her husband's outlawry continues unless she prove the lands were settled on her at marriage, which she only offers to prove by affidavits.

Ibid, pp. 194–6.
Prefixing: particular and memorandum of the premises made out by William Taylor; and ratal thereof by the Surveyor General of Crown Lands. The premises were granted to petitioner 1664, April 29.
Report to the Queen from the Treasury Lords on the petition of William Bowtell of London, merchant, shewing that from 1681 to 1687 he redeemed out of Algiers about 400 English captives and sustained great losses on that account, which he conceives ought to be paid out of the Benevolence money [collected for such redemption]. We submit a report from William Lowndes and Robert Squibb on said petition and have no objection thereto. Ibid, pp. 197–200.
Appending: said report, dated June 2 inst., on the reference of 1690–1, Feb. 27, Calendar of Treasury Books, Vol. IX, p. 1039. During the abovesaid period Bowtell has received 12,880l. viz. 1,440l. from the Chamberlain of London and 11,440l. from Robert Squibb for the redemption of 321 captives at 40l. each, save one John Russell, for whose redemption 80l. was paid. All the said 321 captives have been actually set at liberty save the following 13, viz. Thomas Browne, James Reed, William Clarke, Hen. Thompson, William and John Hawkes, James Mortin, John Lane, Edward Gardner, Thomas Winckle, Albert Jones, Jos. Pomoarden and Jo[h]n Weekes. In consideration that the said 13 were not set at liberty Bowtell has produced certificates that he has redeemed and set at liberty 14 English captives which were entituled by subscription to the 40l. bounty [each], which 40l. was never received or demanded by reason the said 13 captives (for whom the 40l. [each] was received) were through the failure of his factor at Algiers not set at liberty. The names of the said 14 are as follows: Dominick Bodkin, Jo[h]n Carter, Edmond Ravins, Jo[h]n Craford, James Burned, John Williams, Thomas Watkins, Jo[h]n Withins, Sampson Carter, Hugh Jane, Eliz. Rose, Cha. Raves, Timothy and William Taylor.
Bowtell prays that the 40l. [each] for the said 13 not released may be allowed for the said 14 so released and a further 40l. for the 14th man. He further prays 170l. as the balance of 250l. (whereof 80l. was out of the benevolence money) paid for the redemption of John Cave and Jos. Gill because Bowtell's factor (as is certified by Jo[h]n Nevill, late Consul at Algiers) was compelled by the Governor there to pay that money for the said two captives, or else others that were at that time freed should not have permission to go off, the said two captives being the Dey's [property] and therefore claimed as his right by the custom of the place and although Bowtell or Crofts, his factor, had no orders from England, yet he gives instances of the same nature where persons belonging to the Dey have been redeemed by Mr. Baker and other undertakers and the redemptions approved and allowance made for same by two orders of Council “of the 10th of Feb. and 27th March, 1674.” And further that it is customary for the King or Governor there to insist and require the clearings of their own slaves or to exact as much for one as would clear two.
Further, Bowtell proves by certificates of said Consul Nevill or others that in 1681 his factor Crofts was compelled to pay 1,500 pieces of Eight plate (to the value of 375l. sterling) for and towards a debt due to the Government there at Algiers for the redemption of Seth. Sothell, who in his voyage from England to Carolina (whither he was going Governor) was taken captive; and that he has received from said Sothell in money and bonds only 300l. wherefore he prays allowance of the balance of 75l.; for which neither he nor said Southwell have received anything out of the Fund for Redemption of Captives.
Further, Bowtell represents that John Russell, a merchant at Algiers, freed captives there, to whom Jo[h]n Neads, then a captive, applied himself to treat for his ransom and engaged to the patron that he should not escape, but the same day the said Neads made his escape by swimming to one of our ships of war; whereupon the said Russell was seized and condemned to pay 2,200 dollars and until payment to be put into a dungeon and loaden with chains: that Charles II on said Russell's petition ordered 40l. each out of the Redemption Fund for the redemption of said Nead and Russell and same was paid to Bowtell; and further on hearing the said Neads Charles II. in commiseration of Russell's distressed condition, ordered the Admiralty Lords to direct Admiral Herbert to perfect Russell's redemption out of prize money arising by the sale of slaves or by exchange of slaves, whereupon the Admiralty Lords directed Herbert to pay 500l. or to exchange slaves for said Russell's redemption; which order Bowtell sent to his factor there, who presently set Russell at liberty by paying 1,500 pieces of Eight besides port charges and other expenses, making in the whole 425l., towards which Bowtell has only received 80l., thus leaving 345l. still due to him, it being certified by Mr. Aiskell, deceased, then Secretary to the Admiralty, that Admiral Herbert paid no money pursuant to the said Order.
These demands of 40l., 170l., 75l. and 345l., making 630l. in all, we think ought in equity to be paid to Bowtell out of the Fund of Captives.
Further, Bowtell has produced certificates that about the same time his factor redeemed on his account divers other English slaves to the number of 20 and more for whom he never had any allowance out of the said Fund, for that they were not subscribed for in the Council Book, but were otherwise as capable of receiving the allowance as those for whom it was paid: his factor being constrained to free most of them, as they belonged to the same patrons that had other slaves for whom he had orders, and their patrons refused to part with two unless the third was also freed. And he alleges that most of them are still indebted to him the said 40l. each and some more, to the amount of 746l. In support hereof he produceth his own affidavit and an affidavit made at Plymouth by some that had been captives at Algiers and a certificate of Consul Nevill setting forth the expense Bowtell's factor had been at by his daily relieving the English captives (who were then above 1,000) in their sickness and necessities, of whom many died of the plague, and in his debt, for which no allowance or compensation was ever made him. And his factor died indebted to him above 5,000l. as appears by the accounts examined and adjusted by William Hewer on occasion and instance of the Government of Algiers. In the [abovesaid total] time Bowtell says he redeemed about 400 captives, whereof a half have been and are in their Majesties' service.
It does not appear from the issues of the Redemption Fund that the other subscribers for redemption of captives from Algiers have redeemed more than 50 or thereabouts.
Further, Bowtell affirms that during the whole management of this negotiation he has not had any allowance for charity and incident expenses of his factor, at Algiers nor for postage and other casual expenses in his own frequent coming to Whitehall and his attendance to obtain Orders of Council for payments and in letters and certificates from many ports of England; which postage hath cost him at least 100l.; though others have received some consideration for charities and charges incident to the redemption of captives. He has also produced a commission under the sign manual and signet of James II, dated Oct., 1686, directing him to go from London to Harwich to free all English slaves on board a Turks man of war, which he performed. He desires consideration for the same and for other benefits done to the peace then and now subsisting between this Crown and that [the Algiers] Government which hath been preserved to this day.
We have knowledge of the truth of the greatest part of what he hath offered as above and we believe him to be a great sufferer by this undertaking and he hath during our knowledge of him deported himself like an honest man and of good knowledge and experience as a merchant.

Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of nine small shops in the town of Wrexham situate near the Justice Hall there, in order to a new lease thereof to John Matthias and Mary his wife for 31 years at the ancient rent of 4l. per an.
