September 1632

[Sept.] 66. Petition of the adventurers to Canada to the Privy Council. According to their Lordships' order of 25th July last, Attorney Gen. Noye made his report, and awarded to the petitioners 400 marks from Maurice Thompson, and 200l. from Capt. Eustace Man, which they refuse to pay. Pray that this contempt may be taken into consideration, as also the great charges they have been at in taking Quebec, keeping it ever since, and now delivering it up to the French, almost to the ruin of their estates. Annexed,
66. I. Attorney Gen. Noye to the Privy Council. Report upon the complaint of Capt. Kirke against Capt. Man and Mr. Thompson for trading about Canada. Proposes as a final end to those controversies that Captain Man should pay 200l. and M. Thompson 400 marks, but "without expecting any of their assents."
66. II. Certificate of Jo. Peacock, solicitor to the adventurers of Canada; that he has demanded 400 marks of Maurice Thompson, who said he owed the adventurers nothing, nor nothing would he pay. 1632, Sept. 5.
