Same to the Clerk of the Signet for a privy seal for stating as follows William Harbord's accounts from 1689, Mar. 25, to 1690, June 5, as Paymaster of the Forces in Ireland : all by reason that some doubts are made whether by the strict rules of the Exchequer he can be allowed for moneys paid to some of the said Forces on the authority of warrants from the late Duke of Schonberg or whether he may be regularly allowed the payments by him or his agents made for the subsistence of any of the said Forces in such time for which their pay was not fully cleared or discharged according to the establishments and also whether he can be allowed Exchequer fees deducted from moneys issued to him. It is therefore hereby ordered that in his said accounts he be charged with all issues to him at the Exchequer and with all moneys paid him by the Paymaster of the Forces, England, and with all deductions made by him or his agents from the pay of the said Forces in Ireland as well for provisions as for the Hospital pursuant to the royal warrant of 1689, July 23, and also with all moneys saved or gained by guineas received in England and paid at a higher rate in Ireland and with all other his receipts whatsoever on account of said Forces. Per contra he is hereby to be allowed all payments made on said account by royal warrant or by warrant of said Duke of Schonberg for any of the said Forces or for the pay of the Forces of Enniskillen and Londonderry before they were established, or for the pay of the Regiment of Horse of Sir John Lanier, Col. Heyford's Regiment of Dragoons and Col. Hasting's Regiment of Foot (for which no muster rolls are produced) for the times they served in Scotland, and also payments on account of provisions, contingencies or otherwise howsoever. Further, as Harbord has paid several sums to the Forces in Ireland or intended for service in Ireland for subsistence or pay since the times that those musters have been cleared (whereas it is not usual for the auditors to allow any payments made on account of pay or subsistence till the musters have been cleared) it is hereby ordered that the original acquittances of the officers or regimental agents (together with copies of them entered in a book) be delivered to the auditors and after perusal thereof the said original acquittances be delivered to the succeeding Paymasters of the Forces in Ireland in order to their adjusting accounts with said officers and agents and that what shall be thereon allowed to said Harbord in his account as for pay and subsistence shall be charged upon said succeeding Paymasters' account and they to have allowance of the full pay upon clearing the musters from the time of the [last preceding] clearance of the musters by Harbord. "And in case the payments they shall make shall not be for clearings but that they shall go on to pay subsistence only, in such case that [then] the acquittances before proposed to be charged upon them, or so many thereof as they shall deliver up again, ought [and hereby are] to be allowed upon their account." Further, as Harbord or his deputies or agents have paid several sums to be laid out in provisions or necessaries for said Forces the said several persons are hereby to be duly set in super for same in order that the King may have just accounts thereof in the Exchequer of the said moneys and of the several species of provisions and necessaries and the prices thereof and to whom delivered and how disposed and what remains. All deductions made for the said provisions are to be charged on Harbord for his time and on the subsequent Paymasters for their time that so the King may have a complete account of the whole transaction and be repaid so much at least of the money so disbursed as the provisions and necessaries shall amount to at the rates set upon them by the general officers of the Army, usual and accidental waste and damages excepted. Further, hereby Harbord is to be allowed Exchequer fees and charges paid by him [on his receipt of moneys out of the Exchequer]. Ibid, pp. 121-5.

Ibid, pp. 126-8.
Royal warrant to the Clerk of the Signet for a privy seal for payment to John, Earl of Bath, Chief Ranger or Keeper of St. James's Park, of 120l. to be distributed to the two underkeepers for two years' arrears to 1690, June 24, on the yearly allowance of 60l. as granted by the privy seal of 1687-8, Jan. 31, for said underkeepers' wages : which yearly sum is hereby to be continued. Further, hereby said keeper is to be paid all charges, services and disbursements for keeping the decoys and fish ponds and for feeding, breeding and preserving all wild fowl in said park under the charge or custody of John Webb, keeper of the fowl there, or any his successors ; and also the charges of materials, labourers, workmen, artificers and gardeners employed in any works or repairs in said park ; the bills thereof to be examined and allowed by the supervisor of said park when there is one appointed, but if there be none, then by Philip Ryley, Surveyor General of Woods, Trent South, or by such other as the Treasury Lords shall direct ; and likewise all moneys laid out and expended for hay and fodder for the deer in said park : all said sums to be received by said keeper without imprest or account : all mainly on the lines of the said privy seal of 1687-8, Jan. 31. King's Warrant Book XV, pp. 128-31.
Same to same for a same to ratify and confirm the grant to William, Bishop of St. Asaph, the King's Almoner, of the forfeited recognizances which were granted to him by the privy seal of 1689-90, Feb. 22, supra, p. 497, together with all estates which may be extended thereunder ; to enjoy same as royal bounty as amply as is in the King's power to grant, but to such uses as the goods and chattels of felons are granted to said Almoner : and with authority to sue and recover and levy etc. the premises. The present confirmation is by reason that doubt has arisen that the Treasury, Exchequer Court and Attorney General may by virtue of a general authority compound the said forfeited recognizances, which would utterly frustrate the King's intended bounty as above. The said power of compounding and annulling is hereby revoked so far forth as may concern the recognizances herein granted. Ibid, pp. 131-5.

Lee ; Sir John Lowther and Sir John Chichly. Ibid, pp. 135-7.
Same to same for a same to discharge Dame Margaret Poole, widow of Sir William Poole, late collector of Customs in Bristol port, of the sum of 4,247l. 7s. 2d. as follows.

Entry of the [Treasury Lords'] orders, rules and instructions to be observed by the Remembrancer of First Fruits, the Comptroller thereof and the auditors and all others concerned in the revenue of First Fruits and Tenths. [1] The Remembrancer not to make any composition but with the consent of the Comptroller ; and both to sign the composition : and the Comptroller to have free access to the surveys of ecclesiastical benefices and other books of said revenue of First Fruits and Tenths. [2] If any incumbent be willing to pay down in ready money at the time of composition or similarly to pay off their bonds already entered into, no fee whatsoever is to be demanded of him. [3] A [state of the] remain of bonds is to be annually taken by the Remembrancer and Comptroller and the Comptroller to have the power of retrospecting to examine whether the Remembrancer and other officers have faithfully executed their trusts and thereupon to make representations to us [the Treasury Lords]. [4] The bonds so remaining and all others that shall be taken hereafter are to be immediately numbered and locked up with two distinct locks, one key thereof to be kept by the Remembrancer, the other by the Comptroller. [5] The Comptroller not to deliver out any bond without production of an acquittance from the Receiver of due payment made on such bond. [6] No process to issue out of the Remembrancer's Office but what shall be signed by the Remembrancer and Comptroller. [7] Forthwith upon receipt of any returns, from the Bishop, of institutions and inductions, the Remembrancer is to communicate them to the Comptroller, who is to enter them in books for that purpose. [8] The Comptroller to keep exact and fair entries of all matters relating to said revenue, which may be a perfect comptroll upon the Remembrancer's accounts ; and the Remembrancer and Receivers are to submit to the keeping of such comptrol. [9] The Comptroller is from time to time to sign and attest the Remembrancer's account of compositions before it be received by the auditors. [10] The Comptroller and the Receivers are quarterly to compare their books of receipts to see whether more money hath not been answered to the King than acquittances have been produced to the Comptroller ; that so process may not issue to the harassing the subject when there only wants the formality of taking up the bond. [11] That as soon as the states of rectories, vicarages etc. are made out by the Remembrancer they be forthwith transmitted to the Comptroller, that so he may speak with the parties to know if they will pay down their First Fruits and to see that too much time be not given to such as shall not pay down. [12] The books of values in the Remembrancer's Office are to be compared with the auditors' [books] in order to adjusting one with the other. [13] The auditors are to receive no constats but what shall be signed by the Remembrancer and the Comptroller. [14] These instructions to be set up in the Office as also a Table of the Ancient Fees so that all concerned may know. [14] No fee to be demanded on account of process but when 'tis actually issued. [15] In case the Bishops do not make their returns duly the Remembrancer and Comptroller are to quicken them. [15] A convenient time to be allowed the Comptroller for examining all such process as shall issue : and the returns thereof are to be communicated to the Comptroller. [16] Such method is to be followed for bringing in the First Fruits from the Bishops as the Treasury shall now or hereafter direct, "the Bishops not being in process as other clergy are." [17] As fifth [sic for fresh] bonds are taken they are to be kept on the file and not altered from time to time unless when the parties pay down the whole duty. [18] All returns from the Bishops upon writs of certiorari are to be entered by the Comptroller and all pleas thereon or otherwise for discharge of bonds, according to Act of Parliament, are to be both entered and signed by the Comptroller.
