Aug. 21. Same, dated same, to the Auditor of the Receipt to forthwith advance to Sir William Trumbull the 800l. directed ut supra, p. 874. You shall have the necessary [money warrant and] orders for the [regular payment of] same as soon as they can be despatched. Disposition Book V, p. 21.
Aug. 23. Royal warrant to the Attorney or Solicitor General for a great seal for a grant to Thomas Fitch, gent. of the office of Weigher and Teller of the Mint, loco Lancelott Perrott, gent., deceased: to hold during pleasure and with power to appoint a deputy. King's Warrant Book XI, p. 114.
Royal letter, dated Windsor Castle, to the Governor of the Leeward Isles. For the better managing and collecting the Four and a Half per cent. duty in Nevis, St. Christopher, Antigua and Montserrat the Customs Commissioners have provided a sufficient number of beams, scales and weights to be sent over and erected in the most usual places of shipping and landing of goods, with instructions to the officers in said islands to cause all goods to be duly weighed in order to the receiving the duties thereon "and not to take the same by compute as hath been heretofore practised." You are to recommend this matter to the principal traders and planters within your government as a thing very much for the King's service, so as to obtain a ready compliance thereto by bringing their goods to the scales with as little trouble as possible. For their accommodation proper officers shall be appointed to said scales. Ibid, p. 115.
Royal warrant to Treasurer Rochester to give warrant to the Clerk of the Pipe for a lease under the Exchequer seal to Isaac Marriott, gent., of the houses, lands and tenements as follow, with all buildings thereon situate in Surrey, Kent, Bucks, Middlesex, Berks, Sussex, Oxford, Somerset, Norfolk and Beds., being rights and hereditaments "as we are informed" of right belonging to the Crown, but concealed and unjustly withheld therefrom: to hold to him, said Marriott, his executors and assigns for 61 years from Lady day last at the rent of a moiety of the improved rents and value thereof besides 5l. per an. out of every 100l. which shall be yearly made of the other moiety thereof: the said improved rents to be ascertained from time to time by the Surveyor General of Crown Lands. The patent is also to contain a grant to said Marriott of all arrears of rents and profits due to the Crown for the premises, whereof a moiety is to be paid to the King at the Exchequer whenever recovered. The said lease to be in consideration of the great costs and charges Marriott has been at in discovering and recovering said premises to the Crown and defending the King's title thereto. Ibid, pp. 115–24. Warrants not Relating to Money XI, pp. 341–4.
(Treasurer Rochester's warrant dated Aug. 25 hereon accordingly to the Clerk of the Pipe for said lease.)
Together with: (a) report dated July 28 last from John Fisher, Deputy Surveyor General of Crown Lands, to Treasurer Rochester, touching the discoveries made by Mr. Aylesbury and Mr. Marriott as by the reference of July 16 supra, p. 839. I have considered said discoveries and also the certificates and opinions of certain Commissioners who did June 25 last propose a grant to said Aylesbury and Marriott. I conceive all real discoveries ought to be encouraged for his Majesty's service, In Mr. Aylesburye's petition I see only two and those not found by inquisition, viz. one of a tenement called Weeke House in Hackney, valued by the Commissioners at 250l. per an. and alleged to be the estate in fee of Benedict Haynes, whose issue is said to be extinct by the death of Eliz. Waldo, the last of his line, in 1682. If this be true the discovery may be good and grantable. But it is the usual practice in such cases to have the title found by inquisition before any grant pass, as thereby any pretended claims and imcumbrances may be considered. The other item is three coppices in Lillingstone Dayrell, co. Bucks. This I take to be no discovery, but are well enough known to be within and part of Whittlewood Forest, and though it may be true that a lease thereof was granted by Queen Elizabeth, which is now expired, and that Urlin bought them in the former [late] rebellious times and cut down most of the timber, yet it is certain that the whole forest, including these three coppices, is together with Salcey Forest passed to the Queen Dowager as part of her dowry and rated to her at 200l. per an. and to be preserved for the growth of wood and not to be leased "and this I take to be the reason that the Lady Phil. Mohun did not obtain a grant thereof upon her petition for them in 1664."
As to the parcels mentioned in the said Commissioners' certificate on behalf of Mr. Marriott, which extend into the abovesaid counties, but are not particularised nor found by inquisition a grant in general terms will not be according to the usual practice. Every particular is first to be ascertained so that it may be known what is granted. A certain time of five or seven years at the most ought to be limited for the lessee to recover [same to the Crown] at his own cost and what is not so recovered to be void: and no recovered item to be let at below the full yearly value and no fine or composition to be taken from any pretended owner to the prejudice of the Crown. All attornments to be forthwith certified by the lessee to the auditor of the county upon oath with the full yearly value so that same may be put in charge. The lessee not to assign any part of the premises but by special licence of the Lord Treasurer. As it is impossible to guess the yearly value of the premises, the usual covenant for delivering schedules and rentals is to be carefully observed. (b) Statement of opinion by Sir Robert Sawyer, Attorney General, dated Aug. 7 inst., on this report from the Deputy Surveyor General. I conceive the King may lease or grant the lands in question without an office found, though in such cases it has been usual to find offices for the better instruction of the King's officers.")
