Reference by Treasurer Rochester to the Customs Commissioners of the petition of Thomas Richardson for a tidesman's place, London port, being recommended by Sir Robt. Jeffreys, Sir Henry Tulse, Sir William Hooker et al.Reference Book III, p. 175.
Same by same to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands and to Bartholomew Fillingham, Deputy Clerk of the Pipe, of the letter dated Sept. 7 last from said Fillingham to Henry Guy on the particular etc. of a lease to be made to Mary Ross. The granting these several tenements in one lease (formerly passed in three leases) will be no prejudice to the Crown, but will abate and lessen the great officers of their ancient and just fees in which the Lord Treasurer, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Chief Baron, Attorney General, Solicitor General and Clerk of the Pipe are concerned, for whose several uses a dividend fee on each lease is received by the Clerk of the Pipe. Also the delay in passing leases so long after agreement made by the tenants may be detrimental to the Crown by the possible death of some of the lives whereby the King would lose his fine, the grantee being still at liberty to name others which the Clerk of the Pipe cannot prevent "the warrants being not presently transmitted to him as in this particular case it has happened."Ibid, p. 176.
Same by same to William Hewer of Morrice Flyn's petition, supra, p. 23, and Col. P. Kirke's report dated Sept. 12 last thereon.Ibid, p. 177.
Prefixing: said report. When I came to Tangier Major White was only town major; when he died I made Lieut. William Davis town major and dismissed him of being Lieutenant; I offered the Lieutenancy to Mr. Flyn, who said he could not take the oaths of allegiance and supremacy, which I conceived made him uncapable of being either Aid Mayor or Lieut. Major. John Hope was town major afterwards and was Lieut. of the Guards, but the Company he was Lieutenant to was in England "so I think [he was] not of a double capacity at Tangier, the pay of town major being but 10s. a day." Both the Mayors behaved themselves extreme well and took great pains in regulating that garrison. Lord Dartmouth will certify what care the latter [of them] took at the demolishing the place.
Oct. 16.Reference by Treasurer Rochester to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands of the report dated Aug. 29 last from Tho. Agar on the petition supra, p. 172 of Henry Pound.Reference Book III, pp. 178–80.
Prefixing: said report. I have repaired to Beare Forest and viewed the lodges and rails of East Walk and Creech Walk, and find repairs (detailed) needed at the East Lodge, which is the chief lodge and has 20 acres enclosed for the relief of the deer. Creech lodge is so ruinous that it must be rebuilt. This can be done for 60l. as it is a small lodge merely for an underkeeper. There is only one other lodge in this forest, the West Lodge, which is the ancientest and largest of them with 60 acres enclosed. The keeper, Mr. Watts, has kept it up at his own expense. I cannot find that any money has been granted from the Crown to any uses of this forest since the Restoration. There is a coppice ground of the King's in this forest called Mislingford Coppice, containing 60 acres heretofore enclosed as a nursery, but cut down in the rebellion and left open. It is in the King's right to enclose it and this should be done "as hath been sundry times represented to the Treasury within some years past." The forest is very thin of trees (which appertain to the King) but in Creech Walk there are young and old trees of the King among which many are unfit for shipping. "Though the forest cannot decently allow of any trees to be felled for raising money, but only for the timber there necessary to be used in the above mentioned repairs, yet for the excellent breed of deer which it produces and its nearness both to Winchester and Portsmouth" it deserves your Lordship's favourable regard. The wages of the three keepers is at most but 3l. each per an. payable out of the quit rents of Porchester, "which being very uncertain they say they seldom receive above 50s. a year a piece."
Same by same to the Customs Commissioners of the petition of Henry Million for a tidewaiter's place, London port, his family having suffered for their loyalty to Charles I.Ibid, p. 187.
Oct. 17.Same by same to same of the petition of Powel Williams for the place of Surveyor of Chester port, vacant by the late death of petitioner's next superior officer.Ibid, p. 175.
Same by same to Auditor Aldworth of the account of interest due to William Hewer, Treasurer for the affairs of Tangier, for moneys by him advanced on tallies struck on the Customs; viz. from April 1 last to Oct. 1 inst.Ibid, pp 181–2.

Appending: (a) proposals for passing leases of [lands of] the said Duchy. "The way of passing leases for the Duchy of Cornwall (as began and practised since the late King's restoration) is scandalously damageable to the revenue and grievous to the tenants." The ordinary fees in the many offices amount to at least 17l. or 18l., and usually to 25l. besides expedition money, attendance and solicitation of at least three months, sometimes 12 months, whereby small tenements lie ruined and untenanted and improvements in wastes by building of stamping mills and making new erections and enclosures are wholly lost and the tenant disabled and discouraged to renew their estates, the fees often exceeding the fines. It is therefore proposed for a remedy that the Treasury have always before them an exact survey of every manor and of the yearly value of every tenement and how estated and that transcripts of them being sent to the respective stewards they may have power, under limited rules, to make contracts with the tenants in the country, subject to the control of the Lord Treasurer and that upon return and approbation of such contracts a warrant for the lease may be passed without other ceremony or delays "as hath been the ancient practice": [further] that the leases be in English whereby the tenants may understand what they are obliged to do by their covenants for planting and preserving trees and other improvements which are now neglected and excused by pretence of ignorance.

Sir William Stapleton, Governor of the Leeward Islands, to Henry Guy, dated London, in reply to the demand for an accompt of all public money received by him as such Governor. Whatever I have received I am ready to take oath of it, but the public accompts of those islands have been kept by a Receiver in each island, which are delivered in and sworn to by them respectively before the deputy Governor of each island. I can no more swear to any public accompts than he that was never there. I am accomptable for any seizure I ordered the Marshal or any one else to receive. Indeed were the Leeward Islands entire as Barbados or Jamaica it might be as easy for me to give an accompt upon oath as not but being remoter and more separate by sea than England, Scotland and Ireland I am as ignorant of the receipts and disbursements in the respective islands as any man. I will wait upon the Lord Treasurer and I know him so well that I believe he will impose no impossibility upon me to affirm anything upon that I am neither conscious of or ever meddled with.Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) I, p. 173.
