The Treasurer of the Navy has this day laid before my Lords the copy of a letter sent to you from the Commissioners for the Chest at Chatham desiring that 21,000l. may be ordered for paying the poor cripples &c. to Lady day last. It is therein suggested that if the defalcations made out of the pay of the seamen and Marines had been duly paid to them [the Commissioners for the Chest] as they were abated from the men there would be no occasion of any trouble on that foot. My Lords direct you by next Wednesday morning at farthest to lay before them a state of this matter as to the method of making the defalcations and applying the same and whether any part thereof is in the hands of any of the late Treasurers of the Navy. Out Letters (General) XXI, p. 321.
Dec. 13 J. Taylour to the Auditors of Imprests to the like effect as above concerning defalcations of pay for the Chatham Chest. Let my Lords know by Wednesday what appears to you as to the above and particularly as to the defalcations made by the late Paymasters of the Marines and how that account stands. Also let my Lords know what progress has been made by Sir Roger Mostyn towards passing his accounts. Out Letters (General) XXI, p. 321.
Same to Sir Roger Mostyn concerning the above. Let my Lords know what the defalcations [deducted by you on paying the Marines, being deductions of poundage] for the [Chatham] Chest have amounted to and whether any part thereof now remains in your hands. Ibid., p. 322.
Same to the Commissioners for Disbanding the Marines to the like effect as above. Ibid.
Treasury warrant to the Receiver General of Customs, England, and to the Comptroller General of the Accounts of the Customs, England, and to the Auditors of Imprests to allow in the accounts of the Receiver of London port and the Collector of each of the Outports an allowance of 12 pence in the pound on Coinage Duty moneys received: the said deduction to be divided as follows, viz. 4d. per pound to each Receiver in London and each Collector in the outports, 4d. per pound to the Comptroller General of the Accounts of the Customs; 4d. per pound to the Receiver General and Cashier of the Customs: all as reward for their pains and charges in that [Coinage Duty] affair.Out Letters (Customs) XVI, p. 175.
Same to William Pulteney, Secretary at War, to prepare a royal warrant for allowing to Col. [Thomas] Chudleigh's Regiment the difference between English and Irish subsistence for the time they happened to continue in England by unavoidable accidents after the Regiment was placed on the Establishment of Ireland, to wit from June 24 to Aug. 24 1713: in accordance with the Duke of Shrewsbury's representation of June 18 last and the report of April 30 1714 from [Sir] P. Medows, one of the Comptrollers of Army Accounts, and from Francis Gwynn, late Secretary at War, dated May 5 last: the case being the same with that of [James] Pepper's and [John] Bland's Regiments.
Appending: the said representation and reports. Warrants not Relating to Money XXII, pp. 361–3.
Same to same to prepare a royal warrant for allowing as completed from 23 Aug. 1711 to Feb. 22 following five of the seven Regiments which went on the Expedition to Canada in the year 1711, viz. the Regiments of Brigadier [John] Hill and Colonels [Percy] Kirk, [William] Windress, [Jasper] Clayton and [Richard] Kane; they having lost several Companies and men in the river of St. Lawrence and having prayed that in consideration of such loss and charges in recruiting same they may be allowed their respits on their musters from 22 Aug. 1711, when their misfortune happened, to Feb. 23 following, being six months.
Prefixing: report by E. Harley and T. Foley, Auditors of Imprests, on the memorial of said Colonels. The allowance is reasonable in regard the non-effective money at 6 pence a day would not amount at an average to above 4l. a man and therefore the full pay of the Regiments for that time was but sufficient to answer the charge of recruiting same, which the Officers have defrayed for completing their Companies. Brigadier Hill, who commanded these Regiments in Chief, assures us that the full number of recruits has been raised and the muster rolls show that they were completed either on the 23 Feb. 1711–12 or within the time of the two subsequent musters, including a detachment of two serjeants, one drum and 50 men from each Regiment for the Garrison of Annapolis, “which having been subsisted at the charge of the said Regiments until the 24th August 1712 appear to have been borne on the rolls thereof without raising others in their room.” The charge of recruiting and the subsistence paid to the men that died and deserted from Aug. 22 to the times of death (their pay being part of the respits) and the subsistence of the men new raised till the time they were mustered, and also the loss of clothes and accoutrements of the men of three of the said Regiments cast away in the river of Canada amounts in the whole to 8,864l. 16s. 4d.; whereas the abovesaid respits amount to no more than 8,364l. 15s. 4d., so that the charge of the levy money [for recruits or new raised men] at the rate aforesaid exceeds the respits by 298l. 15s. 0d.
(2) Report by the Comptrollers of Army Accounts dated Comptrollers’ Office, Privy Garden, 12 Dec. 1711, on the memorial of said Colonels.
(3) Report by James Brydges, late Paymaster General of the Forces Abroad, on said Comptrollers’ report. Ibid., pp. 363–8.
Dec. 13 Constitution by the Treasury Lords of John Thorowkettle (who is sworn and admitted as one of the Messengers in Ordinary to his Majesty) as [Messenger of the Chamber] to attend the Treasury Lords. Ibid., p. 368.
Treasury warrant to the Auditors of his Majesty's Revenues in Scotland, Receiver General and Cashier of the Customs there and the Comptroller General of same to pay and allow (out of the moneys which hath been collected since the commencement of the Union for the Coinage Duty in Scotland or that shall be hereafter collected) the sum of 12 pence in the pound to be distributed as follows, viz. 4 pence per pound to every Collector at Leith and the outports of Scotland; 4 pence per pound to the Comptroller General of the Accounts of the Customs in Scotland; 4 pence per pound to the Receiver General and Cashier of the Customs there; to wit to the executors of the late Receiver General, the person who has officiated since his decease and the Receiver General for the time being: all by reason that by the several Acts of Union Scotland is to be liable to the same Duties as England and by the several Acts for granting and continuing the Coinage Duty a power is given to the Treasury Lords to reward the Collectors of the said Duty, the Receiver General of Customs and the Comptroller General of the Accounts of Customs for their respective services, salaries and allowances with a sum not exceeding 12 pence in the pound out of the money collected by the said Acts; and the said allowance has been constantly divided and allowed in England in the proportions as above set out [see supra, p. 200]; and application has been made to the Treasury Lords for the making and dividing the like allowance to the [like Customs] officers in Scotland for what has been and shall be collected for the said Coinage Duty in that part of Great Britain; which the Treasury Lords think just and reasonable and do hereby authorise as above.

Prefixing: (1) report by said Pulteney on the petition of said Col. Howard, Major of Brigade to Brigadier Wade; Major Wyvell as ditto to Brigadier Lepell; and Major Bland, as ditto to Brigadier Gore, under the command of General Stanhope in Spain: they having been paid no further than to the 23 Dec. 1710, as is certified by Col. Nevil who was appointed to pay the prisoners taken at the said battle of Brihuega, by reason of their being omitted in the Regulation of Subsistence sent to him from Great Britain. The petitioners were not superseded and it has always been the custom of the Army that the General and Staff Officers received pay for their posts when taken prisoners till the day of their exchange, and General Carpenter and Major General Wills did accordingly receive their pay for themselves and their aides de camp.
