386. Petition of the Earl of Essex and William Wightman concerning lands in Wales.
1576, June 24. Alleging that about ten years ago, the petitioners obtained from Her Majesty, leases of certain lands in Wales of the value of 100l. 4s.d. per annum which lands formerly belonged to the Abbot and Convent of Whitland by whom leases thereof had been granted before the dissolution to particular tenants for the period of 99 years. These leases the petitioners had hoped owing to alleged informalities (especially that the said leases were sealed with a seal borrowed from the Friars of Carmarthen) to be able to upset but finding themselves unable to do so they have been compelled to compound with the said tenants for new leases at a moderate fine for as long a period as their old leases have to continue.
The petitioners therefore beseech her Majesty on their surrendering their several leases, of which about 11 years are yet unexpired, to grant them new leases for the period of sixty years in order that they may be able to carry out the said agreement and derive some profit from her Majesty's grant which hitherto they have been unable to do.
Endorsed :—“12 Julii, at Seynt James, 1576.—Her Majestie upon hearing of this matier was pleased that forasmuche as the sute tendeth to the onelye confirmancy of the tenants estates in their particular holdinges, and that the same is to their good contentacion as her Majestie is enformed, several leases be made and engrossed for the Earl and Wm Wightman for the tearme required being no more than the sayd tenants doe nowe enjoye; and that the Lord Treasurer sesse suche fyne as shall seeme good unto hym.
Signed :—“Tho. Wylson.”
