Treasury warrant to the Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular and ratal of a piece of ground in St. Giles in the Fields, called Marsh Land, petitioned for by Thomas Neale, ut supra, p. 1195, with a view to a grant to him thereof in fee for ever at the fee farm rent of 3l. per an. and on payment of 791l. into the Exchequer.
Prefixing : report, dated 1691, Aug. 7, by Deputy Surveyor William Tailer on said Neale's petition for same. The premises were lately granted to Neale for 18 years in reversion of 42 years remaining on a former grant made to Sir Richard Stiddolph : there being only some old houses standing thereon, it was passed to Stiddolph at the old rent of 3l. per an., but petitioner, in hopes of improving the premises by agreement with the executors of said Stiddolph, was content to have the rent advanced to 100l. per an. and paid a fine also, but he now finds the increase of rent to be an obstruction to his design of improvement, "because every house he erected on the premises will be liable to the whole rent to the Crown," and therefore now desires to buy off the additional rent of 97l. per an. The premises are now valued at 120l. per an. I advise a fine of 400l. or 500l. and 291l. for buying off the increased rent.
