Addenda 1637

Sept. 30.
Hampton Court.
182. Order of the Privy Council. On petition of Margaret and Elizabeth Gates, daughters of Sir Thomas Gates, and Margaret Gates, widow of Anthony Gates, son of Sir Thomas. About three years past they petitioned his Majesty for moneys due to Capt. Thomas Gates, deceased, son of Sir Thomas, for his service in the voyages to Cadiz, Rhé, and Rochelle, in which service by a cannon shot he lost his life. His Majesty referred the petition to the late Lord Treasurer, but his Lordship dying suddenly nothing was done. Petitioners being now destitute of means to relieve their wants, or to convey them into Virginia, where their father, Governor of "that isle," died and left his estate in the hands of persons who have ever since detained the same, besought the Lords to be a means to the now Lord Treasurer for payment of the moneys due to said Capt. Thomas Gates. Their Lordships taking same into consideration hereby pray the Lord Treasurer, when petitioners shall make appear what is due to them, to give order for payment thereof as soon as may be. Draft, with correction. [Dom. Chas. I., Vol. 368, No. 91.]
