The grant is to be to said Earl in free and common socage for ever as of the Castle of Dublin. Out Letters (Ireland) VII, pp. 21–3.

In Queen's County: Portnahinch Barony.

Report to the Treasury Lords from William Blathwayt on the two petitions, supra, pp. 1010–1, of Christopher Codrington. Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) I, pp. 421–4.
(1) As to the petition concerning Col. Codrington's salary, the allegations are true. There is a late Order in Council dated Jan. 28 for the bringing the revenue of Four and Half per cent. hither [to London] in specie. The collectors [there] have therefore no authority to pay the Governor's 700l. per an. Since the date of said order directions have been given to the collectors in Barbados to pay Col. Russell, Governor of that Island, his salary of 1,200l. per an. out of the said Duty. Col. Codrington's case is no ways different and it is reasonable that the like order be given for him. Also there is a charge of 80l. per an. for a gunner and two matrosses for the fort of St. Christophers since the taking of that island from the French, and other extraordinary charges attending the government. These may be ordered to be paid upon the place out of said revenue to such person as the Governor shall appoint, not exceeding 300l. per an., save by special Treasury order.
(2) As to the second petition concerning Col. Codrington's expenses and engagements, I have seen an account of the provisions bought for the services mentioned and said to have been furnished to the Regiment in the Leeward Islands. I believe it to be true, such Companies as are kept at St. Christophers having nothing else to subsist upon, that island remaining implanted since it was last taken from the French. The account amounts to 964l. 4s. 8d. It may be ordered to be paid out of the subsistence of the Regiment and placed to that account; “the Governor or such as he shall employ taking care for the future to sign and allow such bills of disbursements.” As to freeing the Governor from such engagements on the like occasion in the future, I cannot propose any method for it but that the Governor do continue the same care of the Regiment, which he will be encouraged to do if your Lordships give order for the repayment of this sum and such other sums as he shall expend for the same account for the future upon bills to be transmitted by him to your Lordships “until your Lordships shall think fit to order the payment of subsistence weekly to that Regiment as to others, whereby such detachments as are sent to St. Christophers will be enabled to maintain themselves.”
May 1. Deputation by William Blathwayt [as Auditor of the Plantations] (“by direction of the Lords of the Treasury”) to Edward Byam (Byann), esq., to be his deputy in the said office within the islands of Nevis, St. Christophers, Montserrat, Antigua and the rest of the Leeward Caribbee Islands in America.

Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of the manors of Marden, alias Mawarden, and Kingsland, co. Hereford, in order to a grant of the reversion in fee thereof to Thomas, Lord Coningsby, and his heirs: for a fine of 995l. 15s.d. Warrants not Relating to Money XIV, pp. 418–20.
Prefixing: said Surveyor General's report on said Lord Coningsby's petition for same. The premises are in jointure to the Queen Dowager. The manor of Marden was surveyed in 1650 and valued at 301l. 17s. 0d. per an., viz. 28l. 18s. 3d. in quit rents, 15l. profits of courts, 51l. 19s. 7d. rents reserved on leases and 205l. 19s. 7d. improved value of the demesnes. The greater part of the said demesne lands were granted 38 Eliz. to Sir Thomas Coningsby for three lives and 21 years at 49l. 5s. 10d. rent. In the same survey the manor of Kingsland is valued at 55l. 5s.d., whereof 3l. 4s. 0d. in old rents reserved on the leases of two small tenements (the chief part of the demesnes having before that time been granted out of the Crown to Sir Robert Harly), 31l. 14s. 11½1/8d. in quit rents, 18l. 18s. 0d. in improved value of said tenements and 1l. 10s. 1d. profits of courts. The demesne lands of Marden were granted on lease by the Queen Dowager and her trustees 1692, July 25, to David Rowlands, esq. There is a bill in the Signet Office (which it may be presumed passed the great seal) for grant of this manor to Charles Bertie for 31 years from the termination of any interest of or under the said Queen Dowager. I estimate the desired reversion at 402l. 5s.d. and 93l. 10s. 0d. for the manor of Kingsland and 500l. for the manor of Marden, or 995l. 15s.d. in all.
May 3. Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of certain coppices in the Honor, lordship and manor of Killingworth [Kenilworth], as follows, in order to a grant thereof to the Earl of Rochester for ever in consideration of 1,000l. to be first paid by him into the Exchequer. Warrants not Relating to Money XIV, pp. 420–2.
Prefixing: Surveyor General's report, dated 23 June, 1694. The said Honor, lordship and manor of Kenilworth, the park or chase there, with divers other lands in co. Warwick (excepting thereout certain coppices or woodlands called Stonely Coppice, Blundell's Coppice, Shawbury Coppice, Knight's Coppice, Glasshouse Coppice, Whorston's Coppice, Ten Acre Coppice, Harpersford, alias Little Reynolds Coppice and Button Coppice, as being in lease to Sir Charles Berkley, afterwards Visct. Fitz Hardinge), were granted to the now Earl of Rochester, present petitioner, by Charles II. 1665, July 17. The lease to Visct. Fitz Hardinge expired 18 March, 1691–2, and the parcels therein as above lying intermixed with petitioner's estate, he desires a grant of the [Crown] inheritance thereof in like manner as he enjoys the rest of said lordship. The said coppices were surveyed in 1650 at 663 acres and the cut of the underwood was valued at 83l. 2s. 0d. per an. and the timber then standing at 6,000l. But in 1660 it was found that the coppices had formerly been fallen by turns, so that about a fourth part was always kept enclosed and the rest laid open to the commoners, the town of Killingworth having right of common there; and that in the Civil Wars the timber was cut down and the wood all destroyed, except in Stonely, Buttons and Blundell's Coppices of about 150 acres then weakly enclosed, but the underwood much wasted; which enclosure was made by agreement between the purchaser of the manors and woods those late times and the inhabitants of Killingworth, whereby this 150 acres was to remain in severalty and the rest of the wood ground allowed to the commoners, according to which agreement a distribution was made and a proportion allotted to every freeholder and copyholder, which they enjoyed as their own land. The herbage of the said enclosed ground was certified in 1660 to be let for 19l. per an. and Sir Charles Harbord, the Surveyor General, advised a lease thereof at 20l. per an., the lessee covenanting to plant yearly 10 acres of oak, it being then considered that though the said agreement and distribution were become void by the Restoration of Charles II, yet it would be difficult to re-assume the same, the poor of Killingworth being numerous who would pretend they should be injured thereby.
Sir Charles Berkley assigned his interest to Mr. Lovet, a Counsellor at Law, who made a new agreement with the townsmen to keep in severalty about 161 acres, part of the said three coppices, which he let out to two undertenants and enjoyned them to stock up and clear that part thereof which was fit to plough and build a farm house and two large barns, which are still thereon, and the premises now enjoyed by Mr. Harborne at 50l. per an. (which rent is due to the King from 1692). Mr. Lovet also contracted with the inhabitants to pay them 8l for every year that the other part of the said three coppices should be enclosed for the preservation of the young springs after every fall; and he dying, his widow held the same for some time and gave 3l. per an. to one Pawlet for looking after the woods, and afterwards assigned to Thomas Man of Killingworth for 300l. Mr. Man conveyed to Mr. Nicholas of Lichfield, who felled the underwood (at about 20 years' growth) in 1685 and sold same for but 60l. and three guineas, which could be very little if any profit, seeing there was 8l. paid to the town for the first four or five years at least while the woods were enclosed. At the late happy Revolution the poor of Killingworth threw down the mounds and fences and laid the same open to the common, whereby the underwood was much destroyed by cattle, being then about three years' growth. The same remains in common to this day. I value the timber now in the said coppice [sic for three coppices] at 303l. 2s. 6d. and the fee simple of [all] the premises at 1,000l.
May 3. Treasury warrant to Philip Ryley, Surveyor General of Woods, Trent South, to fell three loads and 25l. worth of dotard timber in Shrob Walk in Whittlewood Forest for the repairs of the lodge, stable and brewhouse of Valentine Budd, keeper of said Walk. Warrants not Relating to Money XIV, p. 457.
