[?] Report to the Queen from the Treasury Lords on the complaint against Julius Deeds for rescuing wool seized in Scotney barn near Hythe. We think the seizure legal as being on reasonable suspicion and the rescuing thereof was a transgression of the law. But counsel for Deeds insists that the Customs officers had no constable or civil officer with them, as the law requires : to which the counsel for the Crown replied that the Constable or Borsholder who should have assisted was amongst the rioters, "although at a trial since had in Westminster Hall we find the jury was induced to believe that the said wool was designed to be shipped for some other part of England." The Customs officers were assaulted by Thomas Birch, Hen. Boissington, Antho. Cockerill, Thomas Lording, John Knight, John Whitfeild, Henry Baker, John Godfrey, — Hoggsflesh, John Mackett, Peter Wood, Thomas Stonnard, — Tampsett and William Johnson, who wounded several of the officers with quarterstaves ; the said Birch was the Borsholder and servant of said Deeds and commanded the party and shewed to the bailiffs of Lydd the said Deeds' order for the said rescue. At the time of the rescue Deeds was at his house 12 miles from the said barn. We conceive that the strong opposition which the officers have met with upon this and other occasions in those parts is such that there is no likelihood of their performing their duty unless assisted by soldiers ordered to be quartered in those parts for that purpose. Ibid, pp. 39-40.

Petitioners have proved to the Customs Commissioners that the said ladings are bona-fide goods of the product of Spain and Portugal, and therefore their cases are the same with that of Sir Bazill Firebrace, who obtained your Majesty's licence. Ibid, p. 40.
