July 3.Treasury warrant to William Blathwayt, Auditor General of the Plantation revenue, to engross in parchment and to present for declaration the account of the Farmers of the Four and a Half per cent. duty in the Barbados, with allowances etc. therein as follows. By the great seal of 1670, Sept. 9, the King dismised to Robert Spencer, Sir Charles Wheeler and John Strode (together with George Marsh, who is since deceased) the duty of 4½ per cent. imposed on the dead commodities of the growth or product of Barbados for seven years from 1670, Christmas, at the rent of 7,000l. per an. with covenants for defalcations etc. By the privy seal of 1678–9, Mar. 19, the King declared that said Farmers should become accomptants for said revenue for said whole term of seven years and on their parts they agreed thereto. An account was stated by Auditor Richard Aldworth, assisted by Edward Thornburgh and Benjamin Scutt, merchants, for the first four years of the farm. Therein the said Farmers were charged with Muscovado sugar (into which the several species of commodities were reduced) to the value of 16,371l. 11s. 3d. Their payments into the Exchequer were 9,404l. 10s. 11d. and this sum, together with the allowances they claimed for sums by them expended in relation to the farm came to 12,139l. 13s. 11d. leaving them indebted 4,231l. 17s. 4d. besides 175,176lb. weight of Muscovado sugar to be answered in their next account. By said privy seal the King approved of said account and further ordered the account for the last three years of the farm to be made up with such allowance therein as the Treasury Lords should think fit, and upon the passing and clearing said account the Farmers to be absolutely discharged from their farm rents reserved in their lease. In accordance herewith said Blathwayt is to engross in parchment the account for the first four years of the farm so stated and approved as above, and to present same to the Treasury Lords for declaration. For the account of the said last three years of the farm the Treasury Lords have had the Farmers' books of accompts kept by their officers in Barbados and which were sent to England by order, examined by Jno. Eyles, Benjamin Scutt and Jno. Baudon, three merchants in London, traders to Barbados, who are well skilled in accompts of that nature. The said merchants reported that several of the sums demanded by the Farmers were unreasonable. Thereupon the Treasury Lords have several times heard said Farmers, and thereupon do hereby order the account for the said last three years to be made up as follows, viz. Charge: 4,231l. 17s. 4d. being debt remaining on the foot of the last accompt; 512l. 18s. 0d. for the value (at 11s. per hundredweight) of 93,256lbs. of Muscovado sugar, part of 175,176lbs. charged by memorandum at the foot of the said last account; 20,174l. 4s. 0d. for the produce of the duty for the said three years (being the price of the goods received from Barbados as for such produce) together with 81,920lbs. of Muscovado sugar, being the remainder of said 175,176lbs.; 792l. 9s. 4d. for the value of 144,086lbs. of Muscovado sugar remaining in the hands of the Farmers' officers at Barbados; 190l. charged on the accomptants' own ships which is included in the disbursements on the farm; 24l. 12s. 4d. for the value of 4,476lbs. of Muscovado sugar charged upon the same account; 22l. 10s. 0d. for a butt and a hogshead which came full of sand but were charged by the merchants as sugar; 10l. being an overcharge received by the said accomptants of a loss upon Capt. Westcot's ship. The total of the abovesaid charge is 25,958l. 11s. 0d. Against this the discharge is to be hereby as follows, viz.: 4,800l. to the Farmers for salary, being 400l. per an. each for the first four years; 135l. paid to Auditor Aldworth for auditing; 5,471l. 5s. 11d. for freight, custom and other charges upon the goods received in England [being goods sent to England instead of money and so equivalent to the product of the duty raised]; 605l. 4s. 0d. for 50s. per cent. commission and 10s. per cent. brokerage on the abovesaid 20,174l. 4s. 0d.; 605l. 4s. 0d. for the care and pains of the Farmers in managing said revenue during said last three years; 850l. 0s. 4d. for loss by the wastage of sugar and sundry charges as certified by Benjamin Scutt and Jno. Eyles; 22l. 10s. 0d. for the butt and hogshead filled with sand but charged as sugar on the Charge side of this account; 30l. for abatements made to grocers and others for damages on goods found defective on arrival here occasioned by the hurricane and bad weather; 3l. 10s. 2d. for the charge of sending several commissions to Barbados relating to the said duty, by order of Treasurer Danby; 15l. paid by the Farmers for copies of entries of their goods at the Custom House in order to the better management of their trust; 11,251l. 1s. 1d. for so much paid by the accomptants into the Exchequer; 455l. 6s. 0d. for the value of 93,256lbs. of Muscovado sugar, part of the proceed of said duty still remaining in the hands of John Rushworth, George Terwhit, Mr. Bayly and George Strode, officers in Barbados to the said Farmers and which the said Farmers have by good assignment transferred to the King. The total of the said allowances is 24,244l. 1s. 6d. leaving the said Farmers, accomptants herein, indebted to the King 1,714l. 9s. 6d. upon the determination of such their accounts.Warrants not Relating to Money IX, pp. 108–112.

Westlake, who by will gave the premises to his son Francis, who did 1680, Dec. 25, pass his interest therein to said Bligh for the remainder of said three lives all yet living, but aged, and the youngest of them above 60 years old. According to the Parliamentary Survey the premises contain 60 acres and are valued at 42l. per an. Sir Rich. Prideaux estimates it at 54 acres and 32l. per an.

Prefixing: report dated 1681–2, Feb. 25, from William Hewer and Jo. Creed on the petition of said Widow Mary Heathley as by the order of reference of 1680, Nov. 8, ut supra, Calendar of Treasury Books, Vol. VI, p. 730. Petitioner prays for 297l. as due to her late husband, Serjeant Heathley, who lost his life in his Majesty's service in the defence of Whitby fort at Tangier with the most signal gallantry. By a particular of debts attested by a notary public at Tangier and now also corroborated by Sir James Lesley and the engineer, it appears that for victuals and liquors trusted out upon the credit of their wages to masons, carpenters and others that wrought on the fortifications in the Earl of Middleton's time of being Governor of Tangier there was 1,083 pieces of Eight and 5s. 5d. due to said Heathley, the said artificers and labourers never being paid their wages, it seems. At the exchange rate of 4s. 6d. [per piece of Eight] this makes 243l. 13s. 6d., so that the other 53l. 6s. 6d. claimed has no foundation.
July 8.Report to the King from the Treasury Lords on the petition of Thomas Preston, of Holker, co. Lancs. Petitioner has been very instrumental in discovering Sir Tho. Preston's estate by several expensive journeys and attendances. The present value of so much thereof as is already recovered [to your Majesty] is 768l. 8s. 8d. per an., less a fee farm issuing thereout of 190l. 13s. 4d. per an. leaving 577l. 15s. 4d. per an. We advise a lease to petitioner for seven years of what is already recovered at 400l. per an. rent; the lessee to pay said fee farm without defalcation from the Crown.Warrants not Relating to Money IX, pp. 115–6.
Appending: report to the Treasury Lords from Ri. Graham and Philip Burton dated June 23 last on said Thomas Preston's petition. On a former petition the King declared in Council that he would consider same when it appeared how much came clear from said estate and how far petitioner was instrumental in the discovery. There was a memorandum made in the Treasury books in May, 1679, that if he so proved instrumental petitioner may have 500l. per an. which is entailed on the family. By a deed of 40 Eliz. and a will dated 1 James, both made by Tho. Preston, late of the manor of Furness, being ancestor of the said Sir Thomas and of petitioner, a settlement was made on the eldest son with remainder to George Preston, petitioner's grandfather, unless his eldest son should conform to the laws. It appears by the affidavit of George Hilton that there was a settlement made by the grandfather of Sir Thomas settling the estate in remainder upon petitioner's grandfather. By affidavits and by the deposition of William Hilton it appears that Sir Tho. Preston about July, 1673, declared he would have settled this estate upon petitioner in case he had not been a Protestant. Petitioner's father's loyalty and sufferings are attested by papers, including a warrant from the late King and a commission from Prince Rupert. Petitioner has been instrumental in the discovery. In the manor already recovered there are iron mines which, when they were worked, made the value of the estate 1,300l. per an., but the same having lain still for some time have sunk the value to 760l. 8s. 8d. per an. out of which is payable a fee farm rent of 190l. 13s. 4d. to the King or the Duke of Albemarle. Petitioner may be granted 350l. out of the profits of the estate or have a short lease of same for 400 l. per an. rent.
