818. Sir Arthur Chichester to Salisbury. [July 19.] S.P., Ireland, vol. 229, 114.

Sir Thomas Ridgeway, their Treasurer, came to Dublin on the 5th of this inst., when they expected him not, the wind being contrary. But the dispatch which he returned with made him careless of his own safety; for he put over in a small boat of seven or eight tons, a vessel unfit for him to adventure in had not the consideration of His Majesty's service carried him beyond what was fitting. For had he stayed but ten days longer they should hardly have proceeded in the work of the plantation this summer by reason of the separation of the Council,—the Judges to their circuits, and most others to employments peculiar to themselves. But now upon receipt of His Majesty's directions, and those from him and the Council, he intends (by God's permission) to be at the Cavan on St. James's day, the 25th inst., there to begin that great work on the day of that blessed saint in Heaven and great monarch upon earth; to which he prays God to give good and prosperous success, for they shall find many stubborn and stiffnecked people to oppose themselves against it, and to hinder the free passage thereof; the word of removing and transplanting being to the natives as welcome as the sentence of death.

Begins with the Cavan because the people there are more understanding and pliable to reason than in the remoter parts; and because there is more land to dispose towards the contentment of the natives in that county than in any of the rest; and next to that is Fermanagh, which shall be the second county they will deal with.

Most of the commissioners named in the King's letters have prayed to be excused from personal attendance in the journey, as well by reason of age and impotency of body, as of the difficulty of the ways, the foulness of the weather, and the ill lodging they shall find in Ulster. So that of them he shall have the company of Mr. Treasurer and the Master of the Rolls only; but he takes with him the Marshal of the Army and some others of the Council, who, together with Mr. Treasurer, he is sure will never refuse any travel, hazard, or danger, which is fit for them to undergo for the furtherance of His Majesty's service and directions.

By this passage intends to send over Cowarde, the pirate, with his companion Barratt. Has employed a gentleman well trusted by Bishop, the pirate, to deal with him to perform some acceptable service upon the rest of the pirates, according to the contents of his Lordship's and the Lord Admiral's letters. Wrote in his last that that petty rebel Sackewell [Salkeld] was slain, and so was it delivered to him for truth; but whether it be so is yet uncertain, for he was carried aboard sore wounded, and, putting to sea soon after, no other news is yet come of him.

Cowarde says that the pirates intend to fire the fleet of fishermen upon the coast of Newfoundland the next spring, if they be not taken in this winter; his advice is to receive them to mercy, otherwise they are resolved to prey upon the subject as well as the stranger.

Has sent for Sir Allen Apsley, and will contract with him for victualling the King's ships, as he has directed. The principal matter to be considered of will be the number for which he shall contract. Now there is no other ship or pinnace of His Majesty upon the coast but the Lion's Whelp, whose allowance is but three score men. Sir Richard Morison is of opinion that good profit may be made of the ironworks of which he (Salisbury) makes mention. When Mr. Tokefeeld comes over he (Chichester) will confer with him, and advise and further him in all he may.

Has in readiness some dogs and mewed hawks to send his Lordship, which shall come to him as soon as they are fit to be carried so far; the soar-hawks are for the most part so rotten that he thinks it the better course to send him such as are tried and mewed henceforth, though they be the fewer; they are poor presents for so rich a benefactor, for which he prays to be excused.—Merrion, near Dublin, 19 July 1610.

823. Sir Arthur Chichester to Mr. Dudley Norton. [July 22.] S.P., Ireland, vol. 229, 116.

Has conferred with Sir Allen Apsley about the victualling of the King's ships, and after some debating they concluded the effect laid down in his own letters, which he sends. If the King keep 300 men or upward upon this coast, thinks his offers reasonable, but for fewer numbers he cannot contract and save by them, for his bake-houses and brew-houses will serve him for little other use; all the people here, especially in Waterford and Cork, being bakers and brewers for their own household. For the present has appointed the "Lyon's Whelp" to victual at Chester, and if they conclude with him, they must be enabled to imprest him money beforehand, as he may perceive by his demand in his letters.

Has often put the Earl of Kildare in mind to make his repair thither, according to former directions, but his Lordship says that he cannot begin his journey for want of money, much less continue there any long time; believes his excuse, for he is sure his (Lord Kildare's) wants (his calling considered) are very great. Prays him to acquaint Lord Digby with the occasion, and that he intends to take his journey as soon as he can provide himself in any convenient manner (which he takes to be the King's and Lords' meaning) and not to go unlike himself; when that will be, he is uncertain.—Merion, near Dublin, 22 July 1610.

825. Lady Ellen M'Cartie to Salisbury. [July 23.] S.P., Ireland, vol. 229, 117.

Thanks him for his former kindness, and trusts he will take no offence in that she now again troubles him. But so it is that His Majesty's gracious letters which he (Salisbury) obtained, at her last being in England, for a small remnant of her father's lands brought her a great deal of trouble in law with sundry men, who, amongst other things, were interested therein by former grants; and in the end she lost them, with all her charges in England, and thereto her utter undoing. Is now in great want and no way able to keep herself without his wonted favour; and makes no doubt that he, considering her long suit and knowing that His Majesty has all her father's lands, herself being the last of that house that ever shall be troublesome to His Majesty, would willingly relieve her in this miserable estate, were it not for charging of the King. Therefore she will omit to crave any thing that shall be chargeable to His Majesty, for it is nothing but license for the transporting of certain tuns of beer into the Low Countries; and that shall be no charge to His Highness and it will yield her satisfaction; and ever after she will seek to be no further troublesome to His Majesty.

Understanding that the bishoprick of Meath is now void by the death of the late Bishop, and having good testimony as to the merits of the now Bishop of Derry, Raphoe, and Clogher, His Majesty desires to bestow upon him the bishoprick of Meath, to be held conjointly with Clogher, which he now possesses, and which is endowed with the Termon and Eirenagh lands, in the county of Monaghan, and the lands and hereditaments of Muckna. He therefore directs that a grant thereof be made to him of those bishopricks in as ample a manner as any of his predecessors; with a clause against alienation by him for any longer time than 60 years, to Britons only, and by his successors for their lives or 21 years, at 4l. per quarter of land, and against alienation of all mensal lands other than during his own continuance or from year to year.—Westminster, 24 July, 8th year of the reign.

That there is want of gunners in the forts that are to guard the harbours of the sea, where there is more need of gunners to keep their artillery in fight together than of wards for defence of the place.

That there is need of small pieces of brass for the small forts, whereof some 8 or 10 is desired, wherein the soldiers will be easily taught to shoot without any addition of gunners.

There are pieces of artillery, both brass and iron, to be bought at easy rates in Ireland.

The store there is altogether unprovided of armourers, whereby the armours, muskets, calivers, and swords (which now lie unused) are in danger to be spoiled.
