There is a curious history attaching to this account.

The Bamk of England Act 5–6 Wm. & Mary, c. 20, established a Fond for the provsion of an annuity for 100,000l. to the Bank. The Fond [or Fund] itself was granted to the King and his successors in other words to the Crown of England for ever. The Act itself contains no clause providing for the disposal or appropriation of any surplus which might arise after satisfying the Bank's 100,000l. annuity. Any possible surplus therefore was left to the Crown and could therefore be dealt with as the King or the Lord Treasurer should think fit. Until the year of the present Introduction no question o any surplus appears to have arisen. But in 1704 the Exchequer figures revealed the existence of a Surplus. On this being reported to the Lord Treasurer he informed the House of Commons that the [as representing the Crown] had decided to devote the surplus to the Deficiency of the Fifth 4s. Aid [1 Anne, c. 6].

This communication from the Lord Treasurer is not entered in the Journals of the House of Commons but the transaction is explained by the preamble of Treasurer Southampton's warrant dated 12 June 1704 for applying the then ascertained surplus of 16,223l. 19s.d. to the unsatisfied or deficient loans on the said Fifth 4s. Aid (Treasury Calendar xix, p. 271).

A similar warrant was passed two years later on the 10th June 1706 (Treasury Calendar xx, p. 678).

The significance of this episode lies in the sequel. The mere hint of a surplus in any branch of the Crown revenue was enough for Harley even though he was a minister of the Queen. By the Act 6 Anne, c. 2, the Surplus was roughly and illegally taken from the Crown and seized to the public under the pretext of appropriating it to the service of the Annuities created by that Act. Subsequently by 1 Gco., St. 2, c. 12, clause 12, any surplus from this source was appropriated to and made part of the Aggregate Fund for the purposes of that Act.
