September 1579

758. Edward Stringer.
1579, Sept. 4. Warrant, signed by the Queen, and addressed to Lord Burghley, High Treasurer of England, and Sir Walter Mildmay, Chancellor of the Exchequer, granting to Edward Stringer, soldier at the town of Berwick, for his good service in the wars, such lands, tenements, and hereditaments, without fine, in possession or reversion, as amount to the yearly value of 10l. or thereabouts, to have and to hold to him and his assigns for 21 years.—East Greenwich, 4 Sept., 1579.
Seal. 1 p.
759. The Duke of Anjou to the Queen.
[1579], Sept. 5. Has not written sooner since his disembarkment, having learnt nothing of sufficient importance to trouble her Majesty with; but on reaching the King has at once taken his pen to apprize her of the fact. The chief news at this Court is that the king is ill “dune desante de quaterre.” That however has not prevented him from enquiring particularly as to the success of his (the Duke's) voyage. Has not failed to answer him in all points according to her Majesty's commands, and has not neglected to speak of the perfections of her Majesty's Court, and how it ought to be the admiration of every one. Is dying for want of news from her.—Paris, 5 September.
French. 1 p.
760. The Privy Council to Lord Burghley.
1579, Sept. 17. Whereas the Queen's Majesty is determined to bestow upon the town of Dover, towards the reparation of their haven, a certain license for the transportation of grain out of this realm, into the parts beyond the seas; forasmuch as they are credibly informed that forthwith a certain good sum of money is to be made for certain necessary works which cannot be deferred, the charge whereof both the Council and they are desirous to have (if it conveniently might be) levied upon the commodity of the said license; They have, for the furtherance of so good a work, thought convenient to desire Lord Burghley to give order unto the customers and officers of the ports, that, neither in the County of Kent or Sussex, any person be suffered to transport any grain over into the parts beyond the seas, unless the same person shall be contented to pass the same by virtue of the said license of the town of Dover, upon some such reasonable composition and agreement as they may make among themselves; And that to be signified unto the officers of the ports in the said Counties under the hand of the Mayor of Dover and seal of his office, before they suffer any to pass, and for the default thereof to make say of all such as otherwise would transport any. Whereof they pray Lord Burghley there be no default.—Newhall, 17 Sept. 1579.
