Information by Wm. Barker, of West Newton, co. Norfolk, that Drury owed 1,500l. six years since to Robert Jetter, of Mutford, co. Suffolk, a convicted recusant and delinquent, and Drury's lease of Docking Parsonage was mortgaged for repayment. Barker, being constable of Docking in 1643, desired Drury to make his composition for the same, and he refusing, Barker certified the debt to the Committee for Sequestrations for co. Norfolk, who summoned Drury to compound for such debt; but being examined, he not only concealed it, but positively affirmed that he had paid it a year before, but he forgot what sums he had paid, and when or to whom, and had no receipts. 21

The committee, after further enquiry, on 15 Nov. 1644 seized Drury's goods and chattels, and those leases which he then had in his possession were and are still worth 500l. a year more than the rent he pays. His other goods were appraised at 460l., but he appealed to the Committee of Lords and Commons for sequestration, and procured an order, dated 28 Feb. 1645, referring the case to the Commissioners for co. Norfolk to examine the witnesses on both sides, and certify in three weeks.
They certified that there was a suspension of the sequestration for two years, and the State received no benefit, until President Bradshaw sent his letter by Barker, which was delivered to the Committee of Norfolk 15 Oct. 1646, since which they have received 735l. of the said debt, and secured as much of Drury's estate as will make up 1,000l., and Drury's sequestration is suspended.
Drury being sequestered, the committee appointed Hen. Norton to see the corn thrashed out for the benefit of the State, whereupon Drury broke open the barn doors on 1 April 1647, and caused the corn to be carried away, value 40l. Norton being appointed by the committee to see the corn thrashed out the following year, Drury did the same again, and took corn away value 200l., and meeting Norton in the field, he and others armed with guns and swords took away 4 of the State horses, and a cart with ten combs of rye, and struck and much abused Norton. This was when the Scots came to England under command of the Duke of Hamilton.
By the votes of 17 March 1649, all persons under sequestration were to make their composition before 1 June 1649, or else their estates to be confiscated, and Drury has not compounded; but as the county committee received the money before specified, and secured as much of his estate as would make up the 1,000l., and the sequestration is suspended, but Drury made his appeal 4 years before the votes, and by the Act of 9 April 1649, all appeals before the said Act are to be prosecuted within two months after 7 April 1649.
Drury would pay no assessments without compulsion in 1643, and conveyed away his goods to avoid payment; refused to show his light horse and foot arms, and conveyed away his light horse, and was apprehended by Major Wyld for the same.
