Early Entry Book, II. p. 26.
Treasurer Southampton's warrant to the Surveyor General of Lands for a constat of the premises as under in order to a lease thereof to Mr. Knollis: but first "to confer with the Master of His Maties Ordnance, to consider whether the great roome be usefull for that purpose it is desired; it seeming unfit to me as well as to your selfe that His Maties stores of that nature should lye out of the Tower." Ibid, pp. 27–8.
Prefixing:—The Surveyor General's report on Mr. Knollis' petition. "I find that the old artillery ground menconed in Mr. Knollis' petition did antiently belong to the Crowne and was used by the Master Gunner of England as belonging to his office for the tryall of cannon &c. and King James in 1622 did make an order that the Artillery Company of the city should exercise their armes there on certaine dayes of the weeke, wch. they accordingly used and built a room thereupon about 63 foote long and 24 foote wide and some other rooms adjoining fitt for that service. And having since gotten a new artillery ground nere Moore fields, they have taken upon them to make sale of said roome and other buildings and of a strip of ground for a passage to the said buildings about 10 feet wide together with a small yard to the east end thereof unto one Richard Wollaston for petitioner's use for 300l. and the petitioner believing it to be the right of the said Company and not His Maties inherritance as he professeth was induced soe to purchase it and bath since laid out 400l. more in altering and new buildings upon the premises and hath since obtained leave under the late usurped authority to inclose a small parcel of ground adjoyning, containing about 20 perches, parcell of the said old artillery ground for a garden plot and doth teach a school and exercise his profession as a preacher to a congregation of persons of his owne opinion in the said roome or Armory House and seemeth to be a man of a peaceable behaviour and good life having bred up his owne sonn and others now preachers and conformable to the Church Government now established." Cannot think the said Company had any grant of the premises or other interest therein than the order of King James of 1622, though they alledge that they had other evidence which has been embezzled and lost. The Master Gunner seemed to think the said Great Room or Armory useful for the King's service to keep the carriages of his cannon there dry and free from the weather. Thinks however these may be much better kept in the Tower or in His Majesty's yards in the Minories.
Nov. 24 Treasurer Southampton to the Attorney General to certify whether the case of Simeon Bonnell et al., may be dispensed with in regard of the importation of goods and silks from Italy under the [Navigation] Act. "it having byn usuall to shipp goods and silkes from Itally in the Provinces and probability best for His Maties Customes as the Commrs. certifie. However I would not willingly doe ought contrary to the Act, nor yet exact a thing might be prejudiciall to His Maties Customes and the merchants." Early Entry Book VIII. p. 123.
[?] Same to Sir Richard Prideux concerning his care taken in the King's revenue in Cornwall, "which relating to some survey books which you had not yet time to perfect I expect that returne and for a more exact survey of the Duchy than hath bin at present made I thinke very fit to be proceeded in since we cannot have too much light of what concerns His Maty. revenew." Ibid, II. p. 23.
Nov. 26 Report to the King from Treasurer Southampton on the petition of the East India Company for permission to export 60,000l. in foreign coin. By their first charter made by King James their licence was only to export foreign coin of silver or silver bullion brought in by them not exceeding 30,000l., they being obliged upon every return, or within six months, to bring in as much bullion or foreign coin of gold or silver as they transported: and the silver transported to be shipped at London, Dartmouth, or Plymouth, after an entry in the Custom book before shipment. By letters patent of 1616, July 11. the amount was extended to 60,000l., but only for that time. On the 6th Jan., 1617–8, they had leave to export 100,000l.; 40,000l. in 1632; and 30,000l. in 1635 in foreign gold. "Now I find that for the more ease of themselves they import their forrain coyne not by themselves but by goldsmiths and others upon their accounts ... and they brought me an account of 37,000l. brought in by them in the year 1650; since they have had interruption by the interloppers and others" Sees no inconvenience in the grant, on condition of bringing in returns as above. Ibid, VI. pp. 41–2.

[?] Report to the King from Treasurer Southampton on the petition from _ for the concealments of waste and buildings upon those wastes in England and Wales. Words of such latitude would comprehend lands deserted by the sea which were not in charge, and whereof nothing had been answered. On reference the Surveyor General has reduced the proposal to the counties of Kent, Southampton, Norfolk, Sussex and Middlesex, and directed that the prosecution be in a legal way and by inquisition, and then proposes a lease to them for 31 years, reserving a fourth part to the Crown for a rent. This for the concealed lands absolutely. For the lands deserted by the sea and the houses built upon highways not already granted or in charge, he proposes a lease of the like term and rate. In advising thus the Surveyor General has taken counsel of the Attorney General. "Your Majesty may hereby perceive that these grants wilbe extensive in several counties and being to frame titles for your Majesty and make discoveries of concealments may be vexatious if not managed by discrete persons." Therefore proposes that the Attorney General and Surveyor General should agree of such commissions for inquisitions. Ibid, VI. pp. 43–5.
