Declared 27 December 1716.
[Auditor's] Memorandum. Whereas 435,164l. 9s. 1¼d. has been allowed the Accomptant by the King's Warrant 6 July 1716 for payments on accompt of subsistence, pay and clothing of several British Regiments on the Flanders Establishment, which sum is to be charged to the respective Regiments upon their being cleared, if the Colonels of the said Regiments or their agents shall make it appear that any part ought not to be so charged then the same is to be surcharged on the Accomptant.
The sum of 186l. 11s. allowed for recruits raised in England and delivered over to several Regiments on the Establishment of Ireland is to be repaid by the Treasury of that Kingdom.
The value of bread delivered to the foreign troops by Adrian Vanderkaa and Joshua Castanho, contractors, is to be charged upon the said Forces when their pretensions come to be satisfied, viz.:
31,398 loaves to the Holstein troops, 638l. 18s. 1½d.;
5,293 loaves to the Baron de Waleff's Walloon Regiment, 107l. 14s. 0½d.:
63,788½ loaves to the Danes, 1,298l. 0s. 4¼d.;
73,687 loaves to the Saxons, 1,499l. 8s. 10d.;
4,777 loaves to the Palatines, 97l. 4s. 1d.;
195,078½ loaves to the Hannovers, 3,969l. 12s. 4¼d.;
105,157 loaves to the Hessians, 2,139l. 16s. 4¼d.
The above amounts have been certified by Henry Watkins, Inspector of the Extraordinaries of the war in Flanders, by which accompt it appears that Proviandt gelt payable by such of the troops as did not take their bread from these contractors, viz. by the British troops, 1,237l. 19s. 1d. and by the Foreign troops above-mentioned, 1,288l. 7s. 5d., has been allowed the contractors pursuant to their contract; which sums appear to be chargeable on the pay of the said Forces, the same having been deducted from them in preceding years.
The Foreign troops are further chargeable under the Queen's warrant of 10 March 1710–11 with the 2½ per cent. deduction for all monies paid or to be paid to them for pay, subsidies or other allowances for 1712 as also from the times to which the said deduction was last paid or deducted from them besides 9,845l. 5s. 6d. wherewith the Accomptant has charged himself in this accompt.
This Accomptant is to be charged in his subsequent accompt with all such sums as have come to his hands for Interest on Tallies and Exchequer Bills as well as for money received for Dividends upon the South Sea stock from time to time in his hands which have not been already charged.
From the preceding Accompt it appears that 40,000l. was lent by the Queen in 1704 to the present Emperor of Germany as King of Spain of which care is to be taken when the accompt is settled with him.
There is due from the States General a moiety of the yearly allowance of 800l. for waggon money to the four English Battalions on the Establishment of the 20,000 men as well as a moiety of their allowance for forage from Xmas 1707 to Xmas 1712.
Of 2,721l. 12s. 9d. appearing as undeducted at the foot of Charles Fox's Accompt for 1704 for charges of transportation, there has been deducted in the Accompt for 1706 5l. 14s. 6d. from Lieut. Gen. Ingoldsby's Regiment, leaving to be charged 2,715l. 18s. 1d.
It also appears from Mr. Fox's Accompt for the half year to 24 June 1705 that there is undeducted for provisions for the Forces in transportation 150l. 8s. 2d.
There is also undeducted of the charges given in by the Commissioners for Transportation for 1706 72l. 3s. 8d. and for 1707 22l. 3s. 3d.; care is to be taken that the Regiments be charged for the certified charges of transportation when the said Regiments come to be cleared.
Sums received by Benjamin Sweet, late Deputy Paymaster at Amsterdam, by the Deduction of 1 per cent. upon payments made to the contractors for furnishing bread etc. are chargeable upon Mr. Sweet by Resolution of the House of Commons as Public Money as are like sums received by any other Deputy Paymaster [see p. xxii supra].

and so this Accomptant is indebted2,36419
Declared 19 January 1716.
Memorandum. Whereas 357,006l. 6s. 7¼d. is here allowed for subsistence, pay and clothing of several British Regiments in Spain and Portugal and for subsistence and pay of British prisoners of war in Spain, if it shall appear that any part thereof ought not to be charged to the Regiments, then the same is to be surcharged on the Accomptant.
The money paid for the subsistence and pay of the British Regiments in Spain and Portugal which is allowed in the accompts for 1707, 1708 and 1710 and the sum of 6,992l. 11s. 6¾d. for subsistence to the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment for 1705 are also charged on the respective Regiments, etc.
The sum of 1,718l. allowed for additional levy-money in 1710 is likewise to be placed to the accompt of the respective Regiments and set against their claim for levy money; as also in preceding years.
Several other sums have been issued by the Accomptant which appear to be chargeable to the Regiments, viz.:
764l. 13s. 3¼d. paid Messrs. Man and Macculock for the clothing of Lord Barrymore's Regiment, which was formed into a Regiment of Dragoons under Col. Pearce.
40l. paid for medicines for the Earl of Donegall's Regiment.
119l. 14s. paid the Earl of Donegal as a Maj. General in 1706.
23l. 3s. 4d. paid Col. Cardellon as Engineer at Denia in 1709.
20l. paid Capt. Carlton for like pay and 150l. to Mr. Douglass as Commissary of Stores.
5,242l. 13s. 6¼d. paid to the Contractors for providing bread for the Garrison at Gibraltar in 1710 and 3,345l. 18s. 4½d. paid them for bread in 1711 and 10,969l. 19s. 3½d. paid by the Accomptant for bread delivered for the said Garrison 20 June 1711 to 20 Nov. 1712 are to be placed as an extraordinary expense of the Garrison; the Accomptants' agents allege that bread was allowed the Garrison over and above their pay on account of the excessive dearness of all necessaries but no warrant to authorise such allowance has been produced in these or the preceding years.
2,365l. 15s. 5½d. paid in 1710 as a bounty to the Foot and Train of Artillery that were at the Battle of Saragossa at 15s. to each serjeant and 10d. to each corporal and private man in consideration of the loss of their knapsacks etc. was to be referred to the Queen's approbation, but it does not appear that directions have been given.
Memorandum. It appears that 6,558l. was paid in 1705 for 499 horses delivered in Portugal for Maj. Gen. Harvey's Regiment of Horse and Lord Raby's Regiment of Dragoons. The Accomptants' agents allege that their former horses were taken from them by the Duke of Marlborough's order at their going to Portugal and that these horses were given them in lieu but it does not appear how the horses taken away from them were disposed of.
129l. 17s. 8d. expended by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Luellin on the Recruit horses sent from Ireland in 1705 still remains to be adjusted.
26,712l. was paid in 1710 to the agents of the six Regiments of Dragoons raised in Portugal to enable them to purchase 247 horses for each Regiment; it appears from the Muster Rolls 1710 and 1711 that these Regiments were not complete. The Colonels or their agents are to render an accompt of the horses actually bought and the balance of the said sum is to be charged on their pay and accompted for.
As to the sum of 2,036l. 2s. 11¼d. paid in 1710 to Admiral Somelsdike and other Commanders of Dutch ships for freight and provisions for 1,582 men of the German Regiment of Horse commanded by Lieut. Gen. Eck transported from Italy to Catalonia at a quarter of a dollar per diem for each man, a part proportionable to the allowance included in the said rate for provisions is to be charged to the accompt of his Imperial Majesty.
The several Commissaries appointed to receive and issue the clothing, accoutrements and other stores bought for the Forces in Spain and Portugal remain accountable for the quantities respectively received by them.
The payments made by this Accomptant for clothing and accoutrements provided for the British Forces 25 June 1705 to 23 Dec. 1711 amount to 158,831l. 11s. 7½d. whereof 78,073l. 17s. 5d. has been stopped from the Forces and accompted for; there remains therefore for reimbursing the first cost of the said stores to the Public 80,757l. 14s. 2½d. to be accompted for by the Commissaries or deducted from the pay of the Regiments out of the 6d. per man per week allowed to be stopped for that use; the Commissaries ought forthwith to render their accompts.
Clothing provided in 1709 by John Robins to the value of 31,663l. 12s. 9d. for the King of Spain's Forces has hitherto been charged to that King's subsidy but, having been consigned to Henry Vincent, then Commissary, is to be charged in his accompt.
The Accomptant has paid for corn bought for the Forces by the Commissaries, viz.:
to James Allen, late Commissary in Spain, for wheat bought in 1707, 5,130l. 10s. 10½d. of which only 4,817l. 17s. 5d. is accompted for;
to Vincent Chabanes, ditto, for corn bought in 1708 and 1709, 12,030l. 19s. 2d. whereof 11,784l. 13s. 2¾d. is accompted for;
to Charles Medlycot, Commissary of Provisions in Portugal in 1707, 1,939l. 3s. 8d. for barley and straw for which no deduction appears to have been made.
According to an accompt signed by the Principal Officers of the Ordnance, arms, tents, etc. have been delivered to the British Regiments from 8 March 1701–2 to 9 Oct. 1712 to the value of 39,127l. 14s. 6d. whereof there remains to be deducted 26,605l. 16s. 7d.
The sums paid within the time of preceding accompts to Antonio Belvitches and Joseph Larissa, contractors for furnishing mules to the Army in Spain, as also 109,321l. 13s. 9¾d. paid in 1710, 33,250l. in 1711 and 14,250l. in 1712, are to be deducted on clearing their demands as also 5,018l. 9s. paid them upon their contract for bread and bread waggons in 1708.
According to a memorandum at the foot of the Accompt for 1709, of 7,887l. 13s. 7½d. paid Ralph Bucknall for the prisoners taken at Almanza, allowed in the Accompt for 1707 no more than 7,660l. 18s. 2d. has been answered by him.
According to the same Accompt 8,750l. was paid Brig. Lillemaris for the Dutch Forces sent on the Expedition under Earl Rivers for provisions during their detention at Tor Bay; this sum should be repaid by the States General of the United Provinces.
In these Accompts for 1710 and 1711 several sums have been paid upon warrants of the Commanders in Chief for contingent services; these services not being expressed in the warrant and no accompts being received of the application of the said sums, the persons who received the money are accomptable for the same unless it appear that the respective Commanders in Chief who directed the payments were empowered to dispose of such contingent money without particularly accompting for the same.
Memorandum. Whereas great quantities of corn have been bought for the Forces by William Chetwynd at Genoa and consigned to the Commissaries in Spain, the Commissaries are to render accompts and the corn is to be charged on those who received the same.
This Accomptant is to be charged on his subsequent Accompt with all sums that have come into his hands for interest on Tallies and Exchequer Bills, as also with the amount of South Sea stock made over to him and with the money received by him upon Dividends of South Sea stock.
This Accomptant is to be likewise charged with all such sums from the Treasury of Ireland received on accompt of payments made here for the Forces on the Establishment of that Kingdom as have not been charged by him in this or preceding Accompts.
He is also to be charged with 67,165l. 14s. 5d. which appears to have been repaid him out of the produce of certain Tallies by the Trustees for the repayment of the loan of 180,000l. made by the owners of two Genoese ships.
Memorandum. The Accomptant has never been surcharged with the deduction of 2½ per cent. from the pay, subsidies or other allowances for the Foreign Forces in the Queen's service in Spain and Portugal; he affirms that no such deduction was made in the former years nor could be in 1712.
It appears by a writing under the hand of Monsr. Pareides, the Imperial Commissary General of War, dated 30 Dec. 1712, that his Imperial Majesty is to be charged for tents, habiliaments, bread and other provisions delivered to his Officers to the value of 185,420 pieces of Eight 14 sous 4 deniers which he therein promises shall be allowed by the Emperor when the accompts between him and the Queen come to be adjusted.
