Northumberland, for the escape of William Lawson against whom an extent was awarded for 450l. recovered [by verdict] for the exportation of wool, the escape being only an assumed escape between the teste and the return of the writ and the said Lawson being now in the custody of the said sheriff's successor.
Prefixing: report by Sir Edward Northey, late Attorney General. Warrants not Relating to Money XX, p. 39.
Same by same to the Queen's Remembrancer for stay of process against the late Commissioners for Wine Licences on their accounts from 1682 Michaelmas to 1701 Lady day (for which time Mr. Goodall on behalf of William Young Esq., his father in law, and others are accomptants): the said accounts being now under examination by the Auditors. Ibid., p. 42.
Report to the Queen by Treasurer Godolphin on the petition of several merchants of Scotland concerning wines etc. imported by them into England from Scotland by coast permits and clearances which to their unspeakable astonishment and great grief they find are refused admittance or are seized.
I have referred this matter to the Customs Commissioners [here] and annex their report hereto, by which your Majesty will observe what care has been taken to prevent the petitioners and others from being surprised and with what tenderness and respect they have been used since the arrival of their goods. As this matter is to be determined in the Exchequer by the most fair and speedy trial and meantime all ease has been shewn to the petitioners I cannot see how your Majesty can interpose.
Followed by: (1) Order of the Queen in Council dated Windsor July 28. On reading this day the Lord Treasurer's report as above together with the Customs Commissioners' report as therein and the certificate from the warehouse keeper of London port, the same are hereby referred to the Attorney General and Solicitor General who are to call the parties before them and endeavour to settle the most expeditious method of proceeding for bringing this matter to an easy and proper determination.
Prefixing: (2) the said report to the Lord Treasurer from the Customs Commissioners of England dated Custom House London July 26. Before the Union a consultation with counsel took place upon the difficulties that did appear in prospect relating to this matter: and upon mature deliberation an unanimous opinion was agreed ut supra pp. 256–7 upon the third query which relates to the present dispute. Notice of these opinions was transmitted to Scotland to prevent the petitioners and others from being surprised if they had any thought of bringing such goods hither. We do not enter into the construction of any particular Article of the Treaty of Union but can only be guided by Counsel and we cannot advise departing from it in this case, since all that is proposed is a reasonable caution on the delivery of the goods to the proprietors to abide the determination of law. To prevent any occasion of complaint we ordered the warehousekeeper of London port to accommodate the proprietors with proper warehouses of their own choosing under the locks of the Queen and their own to prevent embezzlement. We have acquainted all merchants applying to us that they may have possession of their goods by Writs of Delivery on security according to a rule of the Exchequer Court ut supra p. 362. And we have directed our Solicitor to be expeditious in his proceedings with as little trouble and charge to the proprietors as may be.
(3) report to the Customs Commissioners by Ja. Dobson, warehousekeeper of London port, dated July 24. I have from time to time taken all care to see wines and brandies from North Britain safe landed and housed, and to accommodate the gentlemen concerned with cellars of their own choice and approbation under their own locks in conjunction with me for the Queen.
(4) J. Taylour (in the absence of William Lowndes) to the Customs Commissioners dated Treasury Chambers July 23 to report on No. (6) and (7) infra.
(5) Order of the Queen in Council dated Windsor July 21 referring to the Lord Treasurer No. 6 infra.
(6) petition to the Queen from several merchants of Scotland shewing that they have imported wines etc. under permits and clearances ut supra p. 362 to such quantity as they found was necessary from the influence the Union had upon the common course and balance of trade so equitably and cautiously provided for by the wisdom of both nations in the 1st, 4th and 25th Articles of Union. The 1st Article plainly excluded us from the denomination of importers. Under the 4th Article we claim the like liberty to transport our effects from one part of Britain to another that any subjects in Bristol, Newcastle, Berwick etc. have at this time; because under the 4th Article the people of England do now import into Scotland without any controversy all such goods both of English and foreign manufacture as (before the Union took place) were prohibited by the particular laws of Scotland. By the 25th Article we claim and assert ourselves free in this present case from the pain and penalty of any law contrary thereto made before the Union.

(7) letter dated “Monday 11 o'clock” from the Earl of Mar [to Treasurer Godolphin], The Duke of Queensberry, Lord Loudoun and I designed to have waited on your Lordship to have asked your commands about that petition of the Scotch merchants, which they have altered in some things since you saw it. But since you are indisposed we beg to know what should be done in it. If you are still of opinion it should be given to the Queen in Council it will necessarily be next Council before it can be ended and therefore the merchants beg to have the choice of cellars in which the wines may be put because the Queen's cellars are exposed to the sun and the removing of the wines afterwards would do them much hurt.

Prefixing: report by the Customs Commissioners on said Pawson's petition. The said Duty was granted by an Act of 9 and 10 Wm. c. 23 and determined on the death of Wm. III on the 8 March 1701–2 and was granted to her present Majesty Queen Anne as from 9 March by an Act made 1 Anne c. 1 'for the better support of her Majesty's Household and the Honour and Dignity of the Crown.' The Attorney General has given his opinion that a ship coming into a port of England on the 8th March after the death of his said Majesty when the Customs granted to him for his life were determined and before the Customs granted to her Majesty were payable was not liable to any of the said Customs “for that the goods were imported into England by coming into any port though not the delivering port of the ship, the goods being unloaded after in England; and the petitioner's case being the same with other merchants whose goods were imported in some ports of England on the 8th and 9th days of March 1701–2.”Ibid., p. 58.

Bridge, the Commander of the convoy who ordered Moody to provide for the Garrison, the provisions being all expended; and by other authentic certificate shewing that the particular quantities of provisions for which he claims credit were burned and destroyed by the enemy, cast by survey, or left with Major Lloyd: and further, since Moody's return to England he has paid part of the money for the said provisions and is in danger of being imprisoned for the remainder.
Prefixing: report by J. Howe, Paymaster General of Guards and Garrisons on said Moody's petitions. The facts are as above. The said money was expended for a very important service and he behaved himself on that occasion with great diligence, valour and good conduct. Ibid., pp. 40–41.

Followed by: Memorandum by Auditor Harley as printed verbatim in the Commons Journals XV, pp. 573–4, giving a total of 120,626l. 5s.d for deductions which would have been made from the pay of said Dutch Regiments for the time they were on English pay, had the said deductions been made regularly: whereof only 51,428l. 12s. 5d. was actually so deducted leaving 69,197l. 12s. 10¾d. undeducted and chargeable against the said Regiments; as likewise a further sum of 5897l 15s.d. for transport; 1432l. 6s. 0d. for over paid clearings and 7608l. 15s. 117/8d. for overpayments to three Regiments viz. of Cutts, Lloyd and Babington (afterwards Seymour's, Fairfax's and Colenbine's). The fifth paragraph of this memorandum however is in quite a different form from that which is printed in the Commons Journals.
In the form here entered it is as follows:
“It does not appear by the Estimate delivered into the House of Commons upon which the 600,000l. was given by Parliament for his late Majesty's Expedition to England to what time the said Regiments were to be paid out of the said sum. But by his late Majesty's orders delivered in by Mr. Vander Esch it appears that the said Forces were paid English pay for full numbers from the 1st July 1688 until the respective times in the year 1690 when they were sent into Ireland.”Warrants not Relating to Money XX, pp. 45–49.

Auditors' Memorandum dated 21 Feb. 1706–7 and signed by E. Harley and A. Maynwaring: The accountant has not charged himself with any interest on tallies or Exchequer Bills nor with any deductions for day's pay and poundage or for Hospital charges, bread or forage or any other voluntary charge whatsoever. But by a Regimental account some of the Regiments appear to have been charged with the said deductions for the time they were in Ireland and with day's pay and poundage for great part of the time they served in England. And Mr. Hill, the Earl of Ranelagh's Deputy in Flanders, has certified that he did constantly charge to the accounts of Mr. Vander Esch all such deductions for bread, forage or for the hospitals as were chargeable to the Troops [and] did allow and pay of their subsistence all such sums as were justly to be paid by them.
Followed by: Answers addressed to Treasurer Godolphin by J. Hallungius to the observations by Auditor Edward Harley: the said Hallungius being authorised by all the Regiments which are in arrears and likewise by the States General of the United Provinces to solicit and receive the payments of the said arrears. The answer is as follows:
The said observations contain 3 material points or allegations.
(1) Whether no part of the pay of those Regiments was comprehended in the 600,000l. given by Parliament in 1688–9 [in repayment to the Dutch of the cost] for the Expedition [of William III to England].
(2) Why those Regiments were always paid full without musters or respits.
(3) Why from the 1st Jan. 1688–9 till the sundry times in 1690 the usual deduction of poundage was not made out of the monthly clearings of the said Regiments.
To the first I answer: that amongst the several heads of charges demanded in 1688–9 by the States General for the [cost of the said] Expedition I find these 2 articles relating to the Army viz.:
guilders st.
payment to the Horse and Dragoons 391430 12 6
payment to the Foot 531205 19 8
guilders 922636 12 14
Of this sum I have delivered some days ago to Mr. Auditor Harley a true and specific account together with a Dutch Establishment for all those Regiments printed in the year 1686 by which it appears that the 2 sums above mentioned were Dutch pay to those Regiments from the 4–14 Sept. to the 31 Dec. 1688 and no longer and that no English pay could be included in the said sums, which [seeing that the English pay] by the late king's orders begins from 1 Jan. 1688–9.
[The above query and answer are omitted in the Commons Journals XV, p. 575. The remaining queries 2 and 3 with the respective answers thereto are there printed as numbered query 1 and 2 respectively. There is however a considerable difference between the present first draft of these answers as submitted by Hallungius to the Lord Treasurer and that text as printed in the Commons Journals and it is evident that the asperity of the first draft had to be considerably softened down before the paper was submitted to the House. For instance in the answer to the third query, the draft besides other material differences contains the following paragraph which is entirely absent in the Commons Journal reprint “For in regard of this great service [of the Glorious Expedition] I am told the Honourable House of Commons intended a recompence of 3 months' pay to those Forces which yet they never have received notwithstanding this notion still remains in most people of England that such a reward was given them”... “for which very reasons the respective Dutch Regiments were very much surprised when after the reduction of Ireland the Irish Paymaster charged them for 2 years with one day's pay and poundage as, [being] a thing they never heard of before neither in Holland nor in England.”
Furthermore as printed in the Commons Journals these answers by Hallungius to the observations of the Auditors of Imprests, Harley and Maynwaring, appear as addressed to the Queen with a formal preamble.
In the original form in the Treasury Records the answers are addressed to Treasurer Godolphin and the observations are quoted as being only from Auditor Harley not from the two Auditors of Imprests combined.
On account of the political importance of this subject it is thought necessary to print here the text of Hallungius's answer in its original form.
To the first Article [I humbly answer as printed above].
To the Second Query I humbly offer: that his late Majesty considering the great charge those Dutch and German Regiments were at in making their recruits all beyond sea in Holland, Germany, in Prussia and Courland, it is supposed that his late Majesty out of good husbandry rather chose to allow those respective Regiments their full pay without respits; since it was evident that the charges of making those recruits in those foreign countries and the Transports thereof, especially when those Regiments were in Ireland, would have amounted to a far greater sum than the respits could have reached. And therefore his late Majesty thought fit to order Mr. Vander Esch that all those Regiments should be paid full, in consideration of which they should be obliged to find the recruits at their own charge: by which certainly great sums have been saved to the publique; and therefore rather was a burthen than an advantage to those Regiments, his late Majesty making at the beginning of each campaign a very exact Review of those Forces that no men nor horses could be wanting.
To the Third Query I humbly offer: that all those Dutch Regiments after the Happy Expedition [of William III to England in 1688] were left in England at the late King's request by mere connivance of the States General, who were uneasy to see themselves deprived of their best Forces in that then dangerous conjuncture of time and therefore [the States] called back (as soon as his late Majesty was proclaimed King) 12 Regiments of Horse and Foot which were sent to Holland in the middle of March 1688–9. Thus that for the uncertainty of the stay of those Forces his late Majesty could not bring them upon a regular Establishment and therefore directed their pay by monthly orders under his royal sign manual: according to which order[s] without any direction for deductions of poundage Mr. Vander Esch paid them full.
Nor could he do otherwise: for I am informed that such deductions are always enjoyned to the English Paymaster by a particular clause and direction upon the Establishments; and without such clause or direction it does not lie in the Paymaster's power to add or deduct. And therefore upon such monthly orders the said payments continued to those Dutch Regiments as long as this uncertainty of stay lasted [and so] in the like manner until they were sent to Ireland.
“As when the States General being provided with other German Forces in the room of them had given their consent that those Regiments should continue in the late King's service until such times [as] they should recall them, in pursuance of which all Dutch Regiments at their arrival were ordered to make oath of fidelity to the late King and the Crown of England until they should be recalled by their own masters.”
Till such time, I say, Poundage was not deducted from those Dutch Forces, as well for the uncertainty of their stay, as likewise because as it seems his Majesty was not inclined to charge any deduction upon those Regiments who had been assisting in so glorious an Expedition.
For in regard of this great service I am told the Honble. House of Commons intended a recompence of 3 months' pay to those Forces; which yet they never have received; notwithstanding this notion still remains in most people of England that such a reward was given them. Further it doth agree with good reason that those Forces which never could expect the benefit of a charge designedly made for that purpose ought not to be charged therewith. And it being evident that the [Deduction of] one day's pay and Poundage is made on purpose for the keeping of old and disabled soldiers in and about Chelsea College and partly for the expenses of the Pay Office and Exchequer fees I can, under submission, not find why the Dutch Forces should find the one or the other; since our disabled and old soldiers lately in England's service have no admittance to the benefit of Chelsea College: and since likewise we have been obliged to find the pay and allowance of Mr. Vander Esch (as our Paymaster) out of our own subsistence.
For which very reasons the respective Dutch Regiments were much surprised when after the reduction of Ireland the Irish Paymaster charged [them] for 2 years with [the deduction of] one day's pay and Poundage, as a thing they never heard of before neither in Holland nor in England; and therefore most humbly applied for relief to his late Majesty; who from time to time promised them that at the General Clearings and pay of their arrears, such Deductions should be allowed them, if not fully yet at least half.
And when on the contrary I find now that Mr. Auditor Harley has engrossed this undeducted article to a huge sum of 69,197l. 12s. 10¾d., of which great part ariseth for the full clearings of the year 1689 and some months of 1690, I must beg your Lordship's permission to lay before you the four several branches this sum belongs to, with my humble reasons: viz.
£ s. d.
1. There belongs out of this to the 12 Dutch Regiments sent back to Holland in March 1688–9 1349 6 8
for which the reason is alleged already viz. their short stay and deserved reward.
2. There belongs to the 6 English and Scots Regiments out of the abovementioned sum from 1 Jan. 1688–9 to May 1690 8537 16
for which an Act of Parliament in the first year of her Majesty's reign has provided already that those Regiments shall be fully accounted for since the 1st April 1692 when they came under my Lord Ranelagh's care, notwithstanding any overpayment made to them under Vander Esch.
3. There belongs to the Dutch Leve [Guard] Horse and Foot Guards out of this sum, partly in their clearings since 1 Jan. 1688–9 to May 1690 and partly since 1 April 1692 to 25 March 1699 44999 5 10½
Those Guards were cleared in the year 1693 of all their Irish arrears till the last of March 1692, since which time they continued in English pay till 25 March 1699. And it seeming then an hardship to his late Majesty to part with them, it is with submission supposed that for their long and faithful service about his royal person his Majesty thought fit to pay them their last clearings without deduction of day's pay and poundage, as a true mark of his royal tenderness and bounty: especially when an express Vote of the House of Commons had made provision for their full pay.
4. Remains therefore only chargeable to the 13 Regiments still in arrears, to complete the alleged great Article 14311 4
£69197 12 10¾
and this only out of their pay and clearings made to them from 1 Jan. 1688–9 to the sundry times in the year 1690 when sent to Ireland: since which times all deductions have been made.
Here I take the liberty humbly to submit to your Lordship's wisdom and goodness if it will consist with true equity and justice that these poor 13 Regiments should only now be charged with this Deduction more than all the rest have been: and this to be taken out of their arrears of the year 1697 when it is evident that (1) these Regiments from the beginning of the Revolution till the end of the late war have very faithfully served the Crown of England in all actions and great part of them lost their lives in this service in Ireland and in Flanders: and therefore it would (2) be a great hardship to their widows and children or successors if they should be made liable to a Deduction for the year 1688–9 and this from a then complete pay and clearing, which clearing was taken for granted and never since thought of. This hardship would be (3) “the greater to the Officers now in being, when it can be proved by Mr. Hill's stated and signed account of the moneys paid by him to Mr. Vander Esch as subsistence for the Forces under his care that 81,039l. 1s. 0d.”: and thus the most part of the arrears still due to these 13 Regiments is mere subsistence of the year 1697 whereof great sums according to his late Majesty's desire and earnest promises of a speedy repayment have been taken up by the respective Colonels and Captains on high interest to conserve their respective Troops and Companies. The interest of which for 4 years only from 1697 to Dec. 1701 (from which time Army Debentures began to carry interest) at 5 per cent. would amount to 16,200l. and thus to a far greater sum than the undeducted poundage.
All which I humbly submit to your Lordship's equity and Justices hoping that you will be moved by the sufferings these 13 Regiments have been and are still labouring under by their being detained so long from the payment of these arrears so well deserved; and that your Lordship will be pleased to give these accounts a speedy despatch that at last they may be relieved.
