July 1575

261. Nicholas White to Lord Burghley.
1575, July 2. The bearer (Watt), has been very penitent for his fault since coming hither, and bestowed the most of his time in temperate behaviour with the Lord Deputy and himself. Has heard of but one drunken brawl, which was with a man of Dublin in exchanging his horse for a coat which King Henry the Eighth gave to old O'Neill, wherein the law was on Watt's side. The latter says that if he had but grace to follow his Lordship's counsel, he were “the beste foole in Christendome.”—From the Bective, 2 July 1575.

262. Sir Walter Mildmay to Lord Burghley.
1575, July 3. Congratulates him on the happy delivery of Lady Oxford, who he hopes may become a glad mother of many children.
The Bishop of Winchester has sent him a deed relating to the annuity of £400, which Her Majesty is to have out of Tanndeane. Has caused it to be delivered to Mr. Fanshawe to remain to Her Highness' use when the bill shall be signed.—London, 3 July 1577.
1 p.
263. Wm. Herlle to Lord Burghley.
1575, July 3. Reports conversation with Mr. Fanshaw as to concealments. He desired him to prove by a shire or two with an ordinary commission what service he could do the Queen. Encloses drafts of warrants for concealments and for the survey of certain current leases which he asks Burghley to sign. Will upon his recovery follow them. Asks also to be appointed feodary over the shires in Wales.
Endorsed :—“Commission for concelement in Wales.”
264. Edward Kympton to Henry Howard.
1575, July 4. Has seen his father who is clean without money, but willed him to pay him £30. Asks him to take £20, and give him an acquittance for £30, the other £10 being a set off of the debt between them. His partner will pay the money within four days. His father also willed him to forbear upon pain of his great anger from coming down into the country, as he hears he intends to do, these assizes.
265. The Raid of Redd Swier.
1575, July 7 Declaration by Sir John Forster, touching the fray between the Lord Warden of the Middle Marches and the Laird of Carmichael. Martin Croster, Scottishman, was the first that brake the peace by shooting an arrow at Wm Fenwick of Wallington, and at that moment two of the Fenwicks and one Robt Shaftoe were slain. Thereupon Carmichael, being with the warden of England, desired to go and stay his people, promising to hang a hundred on a hill for that days work, and so departed. But he suddenly returned and came within English ground, charging with his whole force upon the Warden and gentlemen of England unarmed, and there slew Sir George Heron and divers others, and maintained the chase three miles, capturing the Warden and divers gentlemen, who are now returned upon bond.
Endorsed :—“Sr John Forster's declaration of the meetinge at the Red Swier, 7 July 1575.”
266. Michael Beresford, Feodary of Kent, to Lord Burghley.
1575, July 21. Begs that the daughters of a friend and near neighbour of his, one Robert Chapman, lately deceased, may enjoy certain lands during the minority of the next heir, although her Majesty is of right entitled thereto the lands having been held in chief from King Edward the Sixth and alienated by the said Robert Chapman by a secret conveyance. He has been promised a gelding or £10 in money if he can bring this about.—Oxford, 21 July 1575.
1 p.
267. Lord Burghley to Lord Cobham, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.
1575, July 23. Informs him that having commended the searcher of Gravesend to the Queen, both in Lord Cobham's name and of his own knowledge, though he found no plain offence in Her Majesty touching the said searcher (who was thought to have permitted certain jewels of the Queen of Scots to pass out of the realm), yet Lady Cobham has required him to write thereof. Urges him not to continue in any anguish or grief of mind as doubting of the Queen's favour. He may make assured account thereof, as others do; and yet must sometimes bear with a cast of crosswords, as Burghley himself has done. Will search out further how the Queen was informed of these jewels, &c., and will continue his suit for the man. Doubts whether the Lord Admiral will think it appertaining to his office.—Burghley, 23 July 1575.
