Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a constat or particular of a tenement called the King Henry Inn at Windsor and of a parcel of land called Avelyn's Grove in Windsor in order to a grant of the inheritance thereof to Richard Topham upon his assigning to the King 4 acres of land as below to be laid into the avenue leading from Windsor Castle to the Great Park and on fines and rents as below.
Prefixing: the Surveyor General's report on said Topham's petition for said grant supra p. 225. The tenement was granted in lease in 1684 to Mary Helhouse widow for 14 years from 1701 at 4l. 5s. 4d. per an. She assigned to petitioner and he obtained a new lease in March 1696–7 for 12 years more at the same rent. I value a grant of the inheritance at the fee farm rent of 5s. 4d. at 180l. The former wood ground called Avelyn's Grove is held by Thomas Wardham for 3 years from 1699 at 5s. per an. rent. The ground is 12 acres in extent. The wood has been rooted up many years ago and converted to arable and is now let for 6l. a year. I estimate the reversion in fee under 5s. rent at 104l. As to the land to be laid into the avenue I find that John Darnell was heretofore in possession of 3 closes containing 6 acres by lease from the Dean and Chapter of Windsor for 21 years from 1676 Michaelmas at 4l. per an. rent. Of this the lease of about 4 acres lying within the Avenue was purchased by the Crown from Darnell in 1683 for 72l. The whole lease was renewed to petitioner at Michaelmas last. He now offers to assign the lease as to the said 4 acres (which are very good pasture or meadow valued at 40s. an acre) for 104l. Petitioner was very ready (for accomodating the King in his design of enlarging [Windsor] Little Park) to part with some lands held by him in Mill Mead and Datched Mead and to accept in exchange two closes of Shaw farm. But he now desires that four small pieces of land on the sides of the avenue (which were purchased for that purposes but lie without the pale) may likewise be granted to him. They make not an acre together and I value the grant under a rent of 3s. 4d. per an. at 6l. Warrants not Relating to Money XVI, pp. 155–6.

Jan. 27.Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a constat or particular of a tenement called Walton's Messuage and 3 old tenements as follow all in Old Windsor in order to a grant thereof in fee farm to John Mitchell at 10s. per an. for the messuage and 13s. 4d. for the three tenements on a fine of 250l. and on his assigning to the King a parcel of freehold land held by said Mitchell in Millfield which lies within the limits designed by his Majesty to be taken in for enlargement of the Little Park at Windsor, and valued at 230l.
Prefixing: Surveyor General's report on said Mitchell's petition. The messuage was granted to petitioner in 1691 for 31 years in reversion of Thomas Windham's lease dated 1670 May 2 at the old rent of 4l. per an. It was let in 1691 at 8l. 10s. 0d. per an. I value the fee farm grant at 80l. The 3 tenements were granted in James I's time for 3 lives, of which the last, Humphry Mitchell, died at Xmas 1696 and were also granted in 11 Charles I to William Godyn and William Loring for 31 years in reversion, which is vested in petitioner by assignment. They have been esteemed worth 50l. per an. but by reason of the great increase of the deer the lands in the Forest have become of less value than formerly and the rest of the premises being houses, I estimate the grant in fee at 400l.

Hellen Vaughan, the former praying that an order for him to pay 150l. per an. to a certain woman out of 300l. per an. granted to him may be taken off, the latter praying leave to prove herself his lawful wife. The privy seal granting said pension in 1692 states that it is in consideration of 3050l. due from your Majesty to said Lieut. Col. and for other good causes and considerations but Mris. Vaughan's counsel alleges that same was bounty for service and not for debt and a certificate of Mr. Sadler (agent to [the Regiment] of Lord Salisbury) shows that no money was due to said Lieut. Col. for clothing (viz. for clothing furnished by Mr. Coleby, since deceased, on said Vaughan's credit, no proof of which has been discovered); and it is further alleged by Mr. Webb that Lord Salisbury's Regiment was raised by Independent Troops which were clothed before the date of Vaughan's commission; that Vaughan took out Lord Salisbury's commission just as your Majesty landed in the West and upon taking out the money for clearing the Regiment Vaughan produced letters of attorney for 234l. 13s. 0d., which he received for several officers together with his own pay and then had no further demand on account of that Regiment. Vaughan's counsel allege he undertook for 106 of the troopers of the Regiment and brought them in with their horses and clothes and that those horses were bought with his money and credit, and a Mr. Laughton certifies that he lent him 1200l. which he heard was for clothing; and Lieut. Col. Billingsley says he engaged for 500l. for Vaughan to the said Mr. Coleby and Mr. Michael Cope one of the Farmers of the Lotteries certifies that the said 300l. per an. has not always been paid to Vaughan but sometimes to assigns. Mris. Hellen Vaughan's counsel alleges that she is his lawful wife and brought him a portion, has two children by him and lived seven years with him and that final sentence was given by the Delegates in 1690 that she is his wife.
