Royal warrant, dated “at our camp at Becelaer,” to the Attorney or Solicitor General for a great seal for a grant to John Hill and Ralph Hardwick of the forest or chase of Arkingarthdale, alias New Forest in Arkingarthdale, co. Yorks, with the divers lands therein as particularly expressed in a grant made 1688, June 28, by James II. to Archibald Douglas (since deceased) to the value of 300l. per an., which were then found to have been unjustly concealed from the Crown, excepting the fee farm rent of 53l. 5s.d. per an. issuing out of the Lordship of Arkingarthdale, which fee farm was then and still is in jointure to the Queen Dowager, and also a certain rent of 3l. 10s. 0d. per an. payable for lead mines within the said Lordship or forest.

June 17. Royal warrant, dated as above, to the Lords Justices [sic for Lord Deputy], Ireland, to insert in the Civil List on the present and all future Establishments of Ireland the fee or salary of 200l. per an. for William Burgh as Comptroller General and Accomptant General of the Revenues, Ireland (whereto he was appointed by sign manual of Jan. 2 last), and 200l. per an. for his clerks: to be payable quarterly from 1694, Michaelmas. Out of the money hereby so appointed to be paid him there is to be deducted such sums which he received from the collector of Dublin port or otherwise by direction of the Revenue Commissioners, Ireland, on account of the said allowances. Out Letters (Ireland) VII, p. 33.
Same to the Lord Deputy, Ireland, to pay to Margarett Maurice, widow of the late Dean of Londonderry, 500l. either by inserting 50l. a year for 10 years on the Establishment of Ireland or by delivering to her brass money to the value of 300l. coined by the late Earl of Tyrconnell and left in the stores of Limerick, Galway and Dublin, and inserting a payment of 50l. per an. for four years on the said Establishment: all by reason that the late Queen's sign manual of 1694, Oct. 5, prescribing as above was not complied with for reasons set forth in a report of Feb. 28 last from the late Lords Justices to the Treasury Lords; but the King nevertheless graciously compassionating the circumstances of the said Margaret and determining that the said late Queen's intended grant should be made good. Ibid, pp. 36–7.
Same to same for the discounting of Army bills in Ireland out of the arrears of Excise and Licences as follows. Such discounting was ordered by the sign manuals of 1692, Nov. 9, and 1692–3, March 15 [supra, Vol. IX, p. 1894 and Vol. X, p. 99]. The Revenue Commissioners have since represented that the said letters have not had the hoped for success by reason that many persons who owed money on the Excise, Licences and Forfeited Lands Accounts could not discount their bills if they amounted to more than was due [on Army bills or claim vouchers], nor could the then Deputy Receiver General give Exchequer acquittances for some bills signed and allowed as directed: and they have therefore proposed that not only the said arrears of Excise and Licences to 1691, Dec. 25 (amounting to 18,000l.) but also an arrear contracted between 1691, Christmas, and 1692, Christmas (amounting to 6,000l.) and a further sum of 5,000l., part of the arrears of 11,000l. standing out on the said revenues between 1692, Christmas, and 1693, Nov. 1, may be discounted and discharged by certificates signed by the Commissioners for Stating the Accounts of the Army [in Ireland], and further that the said certificates may be transferrable; by reason that many persons who are unable to pay the arrears of Excise and Licences in money have money owing them by other persons who will pay them with certificates only: and the not paying these debts is a great hindrance to the growing produce of these two branches of the revenue: but since the debts due to the country [people of Ireland] from the Army are greater than the said arrears it is thought better to limit this regulation to the debts of such Regiments as have accompted and further (on the representation lately in England from Frances Robartes and Zachery Sedgwick, two of the Commissioners of Revenue, Ireland) the term of allowance should be extended to 1693, Dec. 25, so as to render more methodical and easy the accounts of the collectors of the said branches of the revenue, which are always made up at Christmas. All the said arrangements are hereby authorised and directed to be made accordingly. To prevent frauds and abuses in buying in of certificates at under rates the collectors are to be strictly charged, on pain of instant process and dismissal, neither directly nor indirectly to buy any such and to certify on oath that they have not done or connived at any such purchase. Ibid, pp. 37–9.
June 18. Money warrant for 160l. to Hen. Wheatley, esq., late sheriff of Surrey, for so much paid to several persons for apprehending etc. John Salter, John Blaxton, Fran. Thorne and William Stephens, four highway robbers. (Money order dated June 21 hereon.) Money Book XII, p. 548. Order Book IV, p. 204.

Reference Book VII, p. 103.
