Kerry: and thereupon second returns were ordered to be made by the said collectors to the said Commissioners and quit rents for additional waste lands amounting to 4945l. 19s.d. for the said 3 years were scheduled accordingly: whereon the said Lord's lands were returned waste for the said 3 years at 148l. 7s.d. per an. but the Revenue Commissioners refused to give him allowance of the same without royal warrant: the said House having made some progress in the consideration of this matter but no Act passed till the year 1698 at which time the royal assent was given to a bill for remitting the 21,027l. 3s.d. contained in the first list but as for the rest the House addressed the then Lords Justices for a respit of So much of the arrears in the said [second] list as had not been answered and paid to the Crown until there might be another opportunity of preparing an Act for the remittal of the same, and accordingly the Lords Justices from time to time directed such respite as was desired until 1703 when a second Act of Remittal did pass: and that the said Lord Shelburne's said lands of Gartalinny were in the second list returned to be waste during the said 3 years and to be in arrear 445l. 2s.d.: but in the interval between the first proceedings of this affair in Parliament and the passing of the first [sic? second] Act of Remittal, Charles Monck the collector levied several sums of money out of the said lands upon account of quit rent all which (taking no notice of the proceedings in Parliament) he applied in discharge of the arrears of the said 3 years and left an arrear of 351l. 16s.d. standing out in his account as an arrear for the subsequent years, which method though regular in the usual course of the revenue yet was not practised by other collectors in the case of these particular three years' arrears in regard the consideration thereof was depending in Parliament: by which means it fell out that when the Revenue Commissioners were required in 1703 to lay before the House of Commons a list of the unpaid arrears of quit rents on the waste lands in the second list, finding by the collector's accounts that no arrear was standing out on the said lands of Lord Shelburne, they left the said lands out of the list and thereby they were left out of the Act of 1703: and therefore the present royal warrant is necessary in order to the due making of the allowance to him, his case being the same as for those who are comprehended in the Act.

William Blathwayt to William Lowndes. In reply to the Lord Treasurer's letter of 1705 June 4 ut supra Treasury Calendar Vol. XX, p. 277 concerning Col. Byrd's accompts the President and Council of Virginia have reported Aug. 29 last as in (a) infra I find by a letter from Mr. Byrd [son of said Col. Byrd] that the Council had undertaken to transmit to the Lord Treasurer all his father's accompts duly examined but I am informed they have miscarried on board her Majesty's ship Hazardous, one of the Virginia convoys lately cast away on the coast of Sussex in her return. I will give notice thereof to the President and Council of Virginia by the Convoy now going thither so that they may transmit duplicates of the accounts and vouchers. I enclose an abstract of the “proper” accounts of Mr. William Byrd the present Receiver General, from the death of his father; which accompts are come to my hand by another ship. They show a balance of 3232l. 3s. 3d. due to her Majesty on Aug. 30 last on the 2s. per hogshead raised for the support of the Government there; and a balance of 2060l. 12s.d. similarly due at April 25 last on the accompt of Quit Rents (whereof the sum of 5745l. 10s.d. has been paid into her Majesty's Exchequer since 1704 April 25).
I also enclose an abstract of the accompts of Jamaica from 29 Sept. 1704 to 29 Sept. 1705 showing a balance of 5853l. 7s. 11d. as due for the support of the Government [there].
Likewise an abstract of the accompts of Massachusetts Bay in New England from 31 May 1704 to 31 May 1705 showing a balance of 11,222l. 15s. 5d. due to her Majesty in debts standing out and Bills of Credit.
I expect to receive in a short time the accompts of New York, upon the arrival of Mr. Bierly, her Majesty's Receiver General there.
Followed by: (a) report dated 29 Aug. 1706 to the Lord Treasurer from the President and Council of Virginia to the above quoted letter of Treasurer Godolphin of 1705 June 4, the said report being signed by E. Jennings, President; and William Bassett, Dudley Diggs, Hen. Duke, James Blair, Benj. Harrison, Phil[ip] Ludwell, Robert Carter [members of the Council]. We have called before us William Byrd, son and executor of William Byrd late Auditor and Receiver General of Virginia. He has produced to us his father's accompts from the time of his entering on the said office on the 20 June 1688 to the day of his death. From them it appears that a balance of 464l. 1s.d. was due from his predecessor Nathaniel Bacon but not paid to him (Byrd) till the year 1695. The said Byrd received all her Majesty's revenues of quit rents, forfeitures, compositions for escheats, the 2s. per hogshead, port Duties etc. from his entering on office to his death which happened the 4 Dec. 1704. The son laid before us these accompts in two distinct Books, one entitled an accompt of quit rents (and including compositions for escheats); the other an accompt of the revenue of 2s. per hogshead etc. The charge of the quit rents has been made out to us by the rent rolls of the several counties of Virginia under the hands of the respective sheriffs thereof, but the rent rolls of some counties are missing viz. for Rappahannock County for 1690 and 1691; Isle of Wight for 1696; Accomack for 1697 and 1699; James City for 1698; Gloucester for 1700 and 1702; and Middlesex for 1702. For want of these rent rolls we could not exactly state the charge of the quit rents for those years but by comparing them with the rent rolls of the same counties in other years we see nothing to induce us to suspect his accompt of quit rents.
As to the Compositions for Escheats, after the most diligent enquiry into the returns of Escheats into the Secretary's Office we can find no more Escheats nor any greater Compositions than Byrd accounts for. We have also examined the disbursements and find them duly made by warrants from the respective Governors and in pursuance of orders from the Lord High Treasurer of England. We have inspected all the said warrants and orders and the receipts and endorsements of the payees. The balance due to her Majesty from Byrd at the time of his death appears as 5745l. 10s.d. sterling.
We have also examined the other accompt styled “an Accompt of her Majesty's revenue of 2s. per hogshead, Port Duties and Head Money etc.,” all which Duties were raised and appropriated by Act of Assembly in this country to the support of the Government and the contingent charges thereof. For the receipts we have seen sufficient vouchers from the accounts of the Naval Officers of this country who collected the same, which accompts of the Naval Officers have been yearly made up according to directions given from time to time by the Government here [Virginia] and we have no reason to suspect that he received more than he gives credit for to her Majesty. We have examined the disbursements of that revenue and find that the salaries to the Governor, Council, Auditor of the Virginia Duties, Solicitor of the Virginia Affairs, Attorney General, Clerk of the Council etc. have been paid as appears by warrants of the Governors and the endorsements of the payees. For his other payments we find he had warrants from the Governors and the endorsements of the payees.
We find that what is due to her Majesty from the estate of the said William Byrd is not more than 1938l. 16s.d. on account of the revenue of 2s. per hogshead and the abovesaid sum [5745l. 10s.d.] on account of quit rents. For these sums and for the accruing receipts the present Receiver General William Byrd the son has given good security.
The above report was agreed on and prepared by the late Governor in Council but he dying before it could be signed by him it is submitted by us [the Council of Virginia].
