Treasury reference to the Attorney General of the petition of Sir John Trevor shewing that he has a patent as Constable and Mayor of the Castle and town of Flint, by virtue whereof he has appointed Humphrey Lloyd as Recorder and Steward of said town and of the Queen's Manor of Flint; that the bailiffs of the town have unlawfully and irregularly held a Court Leet by their own authority denying the petitioner's precept for holding the said Court and have given many insults and interruptions to said Lloyd in the execution of justice; and likewise that Sir Roger Mostyn and Humphrey Jones (who procured themselves to be chosen bailiffs for the ensuing year) have brought a mandamus against petitioner to be sworn: therefore praying that the Attorney General may take up the matter on behalf of the Queen's right, as petitioner cannot follow this matter as he should by reason of his employment.
