“which cloathing the streightness of time not permitting the said Colonels to purchase in Ireland as usual before their embarcation for our island of Minorca, which our service did require to be immediately provided, the said Board of General Officers proposed that the same might be provided here [in England] and the assignments of the said Colonels to be granted for the above sums upon their offreckonings in Ireland,” which the King thinks reasonable, seeing that the Regiments who are to succeed them on “our” Establishment have also been clothed to 24 March 1718–19 and the offreckonings here [in England have been] made liable to the payment of the same. Out Letters (Ireland) X, p. 215.
Aug. 21. Same dated same to same to prepare an Establishment of Half Pay for the Officers of the 13 Regiments which were disbanded in Ireland on or about 24 June 1717 “in order to make room for a like number of Regiments transferred from the Establishment of Great Britain” to the Establishment of Ireland: the said disbanded Regiments being as follows:
Lieut. Gen. Palmer's.
Lord Mountjoy's.
Brigadier Ferrer's.
Col. Morrice's.
Col. La Bouchetiere's.
Lord Tyrawley's.
Marquis de Montandre's.
Brig. Creighton's.

the King being pleased to allow to the Officers of the said 13 disbanded Regiments half pay by [or according to and under] the Establishment of England up to 25 Dec. last; but the Parliament of Great Britain having made no provision of Half Pay to the said Officers from and after the said date of 25 Dec. last; and the King thinking it reasonable that such of the said Officers as were provided in the said 13 Regiments from off the Establishment of Half Pay in Ireland should again be placed on Half Pay there “and no others” and according to [the rates of] the present Establishment of Half Pay there: to wit as from 1717 Dec. 25 it is hereby ordered that an Establishment of Half Pay be formed for them to be paid and satisfied out of moneys in the hands of the Vice Treasurer or Paymaster of the Forces in Ireland which “was” given the last Sessions of Parliament towards satisfying the arrears due to our said Forces and until such time as the Parliament of our said Kingdom [Ireland] shall next meet “before whom you are hereby required to cause an account to be laid of all such sums of money as shall have been issued for the pay of the Reduced Officers aforesaid in order to their making a provision for the further satisfying the same as well as the arrears which shall then appear to be due to our Forces in our said Kingdom [of Ireland].” Out Letters (Ireland) X, p. 216.

Out Letters (North Britain) IV, pp. 391–5.
Aug. 22. Royal warrant dated same to Henry, Earl of Lincoln, Paymaster General of Guards, Garrisons and Land Forces, to include the full pay of five men per Troop or Company in the Debentures to be made out by you for the pay of the four Regiments in garrison in Minorca from 25 Dec. 1716 to 24 Dec. 1717, viz. the Regiments of Col. O'Hara, Brigadier Stanwix, Major General Whetham, and Lieut. Gen. Sankey: all by reason that Col. Richard Kane, Lieut. Governor of Minorca, hath represented to the King that it was signified from the then Secretary at War 1716 November 26 that the King had made a new Establishment and Regulation of the Forces by which every Regiment in the service was to muster and for the future to consist in each Troop or Company of five men less than their [then] present numbers upon the Establishment and that a sum of money in lieu of the pay of the said five men was to be placed upon the Establishment of every Regiment to be disposed of in the following manner: viz.
the full pay of one man per Troop and Company to [go to the credit of] the Widows' Fund as usual.
the subsistence of one man per Troop and Company to [go to the credit of] the Colonels of the respective Regiments in lieu of all customary allowances and pretensions.
the subsistence of two men per Troop and Company to [go to the credit of] the respective Captains for the charge of recruiting and [for] other Regimental contingent expenses and customary allowances.
the subsistence of one man per Troop and Company to [go to the credit of] the respective Regiments in lieu of their customary allowances.
the remainder of the full pay of the four men last mentioned (after the usual deductions made) to be issued as offreckonings upon such assignments as have been or shall be made thereof by the respective Colonels towards enabling them to supply the loss of cloathing by desertion &c.
In obedience to the said signification the said Lieut. Governor of Minorca conformed the muster rolls of the four Regiments in garrison there to the said new Regulation from 25 Dec. 1716, from which time forward there have been no fictitious names placed on the muster rolls of the said Regiments. He has therefore prayed a royal warrant to authorise him to include the full pay of the said five men in the Debentures to be made out for the pay of the said Regiments from the said 25 Dec. 1716: all which is hereby granted and authorised as above.
Nevertheless as often as there shall appear upon the muster rolls of any of the said Companies any respits of private men the same shall be deducted: and you shall also deduct from each Captain who shall have any such respit on his Company the subsistence of the two men allowed for recruiting for the times that any such respit shall appear; “it being our intention that the benefit of the said allowance of subsistence money for recruiting shall be only on condition and during the time that the respective Companies shall be kept complete.” King's Warrant Book XXIX, pp. 287–8.
Aug. 22. A like warrant dated same for the pay as above of the five men per Troop or Company discontinued upon the muster rolls of the Forces in Great Britain from 25 June 1717 to Dec. 24 following: for the like purpose as above and with the like proviso as above: all by reason that the royal warrant of 15 July 1717 allowed the pay of the said five men for purposes as above from 25 Aug. 1716 to 24 June 1717; and the King is graciously pleased to continue the allowance of the said full pay for the five men so discontinued per Troop and Company “throughout all our Regiments of Horse, Foot and Dragoons in Great Britain to and for the uses before expressed” from 25 June 1717 to Dec. 24 following. Ibid., pp. 288–9.
William Lowndes to the Attorney General to hasten his report on the signature in favour of Lady Panmure. Out Letters (General) XXII, p. 347.
Treasury warrant to Hugh Cholmley, Surveyor General of Crown Lands, to set out and describe by proper buttalls and boundaries the small messuage or tenement in the Stable Yard at St. James's which adjoins William Clayton's dwelling house, which messuage it is the King's pleasure that it be put into the said Clayton's possession and which must be pulled down and rebuilt by reason of its ruinous condition, and that he have a 50 years' lease thereof, as also of a narrow passage behind the said messuage: and thereupon to make a constat thereof and to rate same in order to such a lease. Warrants not Relating to Money XXV, p. 125.
Aug.22. Treasury warrant to the Surveyor of his Majesty's [private] Roads to give liberty to the inhabitants of Fulham for one week and no longer to pass through the King's private road.
Prefixing: report by the Board of Works dated Aug. 20 inst. on the petition of said inhabitants, ut supra, p. 530. Had they made application sooner for this indulgence the inconveniency of letting so great a number of heavy carriages pass through would not have been so great as just at this time during his Majesty's residence at Hampton Court; because the last years when the Court was there complaints were frequently made that the coaches of several of the Ministers of State and other persons of quality and distinction were stopped and crowded into the ditches by carts, drays, stage and Hackney coaches amp;c. that could not be kept out by reason the Surveyor of the Roads was not master of the gates and gatekeepers. But since it seems to be a case of necessity and the favour they ask not like to exceed one week (although the road is already since the late great expense very much worn), we are of opinion so short a space of time cannot do the road much more damage. Ibid., p. 126.
Treasury letters patent constituting and appointing as Commissioners for Hawkers and Pedlars George Townsend, Montague Bacon and John Ayliffe in place of George Townsend, Montague Bacon and Thomas Jervaise, thereto constituted by a Treasury instrument dated 7 Aug. 1717, which is hereby determined. (The effect hereof is only to substitute John Ayliffe for the said Thomas Jervaise.) Ibid., pp. 127–8.

White, Samuel Barnard, Thomas Dickenson, John Streane, Capt. Barwell, John Richardson, Walter Fernley, Joseph Trevors, Alexander Meers, Joseph Wilson, Weedon Parry, George Negus, Capt. Hampton, John Richardson, Joseph Wilson, William Johnson, Michael Warwick, John Rose, John Blake, Jos. Marten, Henry Parsons, Thomas Plumstead, Thomas Jackson, Jacob Taylor, Thomas Cawthorne, John Smalwood, Thomas Hopgood, Thomas Hodgson, Samuel Tuft, Thomas Sandiford and Capt. Lawton.
Prefixing: report by the Excise Commissioners on the petitions of said merchants. Ibid., pp. 130–1.
Same to the Board of Works to perform repairs in the Duke of Roxburgh's Office to an estimate of 97l.: the same being commanded by his Majesty to be done. Prefixing: said estimate by the Board of Works. Lord Chamberlain's Warrant Book I, p. 68.
Treasury subscription for the execution of a warrant dated June 27 last from Holles, [Duke of] Newcastle [upon Tyne], Lord Chamberlain of the Household, to the Master of the Great Wardrobe to deliver to the Pages of the Bedchamber to his Majesty (viz. Edward Brown, Lawrence Saxton, Robert Gardiner, William Taylor, James Sell, David Harris and Mr. De Graves) 14 pair of Holland sheets, 14 pair of blankets, 14 pair of pillowbers, 7 fustian and 7 pillows, “which his Majesty is pleased to allow once in three years”: to an estimate of 116l.

The said Jacob de la Motte Blagny is to pay the above list by quarterly payments on the production of a certificate signed by three at least of the principal [Huguenot] Refugees residing in London of the alterations made in the aforegoing Establishment by death. He is to deliver the acquittances or other vouchers which he receives to the person from whose hands he shall receive the money for payment thereof to the end they may be delivered to the Auditors of Imprests. King's Warrant Book XXIX, pp. 274–9.
Aug. 25. Royal sign manual to Walter Chetwynd [Paymaster of the King's private pensions and bounties]. The several persons undernamed were inserted on our former Establishment for the pensions set against their names respectively. But we have thought fit to respit and suspend the payment of the said pensions until a strict examination be passed on the persons receiving the same, so as we may thereby be informed that these instances of our bounty are bestowed on such objects who by reason of their services, sufferings or misfortunes by and under the Crown are worthy and deserving our favour in that behalf. Therefore upon the appearance of any of the said persons for their pensions you are to examine and interrogate them touching their pretensions to the said pensions and the proofs, certificates and testimonials they have to support the same. And from time to time as such examinations shall by you be taken, you are to exhibit the same in writing to the Treasury Lords to be laid before us for our further pleasure therein.
