The Bill for Shrewsburie sent up to the Lords by Mr. Comptroller, and others.

Tunbridge School.

It is this Day Ordered, by this House, upon the Question, That touching the Bill passed in this House for the School of Tunbridge, and Andrewe Fissher, these Words following shall be set down ; viz.

Memorandum, That the Bill concerning Tunbridge School, and Andrewe Fissher, in which Bill, One Deed, made in the Name of Henry Fissher, is supposed to be forged, was committed to the Right Honourable Sir Walter Mildmaye Knight, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Thoms. Scott, &c.; who have certified to this House, that they found great Untruth and Impudency in the said Andrew Fissher; and that, for very vehement Presumptions, they think very evil of the Deed: Nevertheless, upon Fissher's Submission, they have been contented to withdraw out of the Bill all Words that touched him in Infamy : And so the Bill penned passed this House, with Assent on both Sides; as well to help Tunbridge School, as other, that had bought Land of the said Andrewe's Father bona fide. And the said Committees have further reported, that the same Matter coming also in Question in the higher House, before Committees there, at the Suit of Henry, Brother of the said Andrewe, the Committees of the higher House have, for great Causes, agreed in Opinion with the Committees of this House concerning the Deed.
