The Queen, by her royal letters dated at Bath 25 Sept. 1702, was pleased, upon the reduction of the French part of St. Christopher, to restrain her Governor, Colonel Codrington from granting any part thereof for a longer period than three years which was adjudged a sufficient time for raising a product from the conquered part of that island with due regard to a treaty of peace to be had with the French, wherein all matters of that nature will be brought under consideration and the said lands thereupon to remain either to her Majesty's final disposal thereof to her own subjects or to be restored to the French. By an instrument under his hand dated 1704 April 29 Col. Codrington granted the tract of land and appurtenances mentioned in the petition of William and Richard Clayton for 2½ years. I am of opinion such grant may be fit to be confirmed by her Majesty and that a further grant of 2½ years be granted to them whereby they may be encouraged to continue the improvement of the said plantation which tends to increase the Customs. The like Instructions as to Col. Codrington may be given to the present Governor Col. Parks.
