Addenda, Cromwell Period Papers

The Papers which follow are addenda belonging to the Cromwell period.

1028. The Statute of Uses.
R. O.
Petition addressed to my lord Privy Seal showing that the writer has not since the Statute of Uses “devised any estates to bring a term of years to the owner of the inheritance of any lands with a remainder over to declare a will.” Gives explanations. Describes cases in which he has been of counsel since the statute, viz.:—
(1.) Ric. Leftwyche, dec., considering that his son and heir, “being not of most sad conversation, would not be married by him,” sent to the writer to draw an enfeoffment to prevent his son from aliening away his lands. Drew it up with Mr. Bromley. (fn. 1) (2.) Jointure to the wife of the said Richard and an estate for life to Rauff Leftwyche, a younger son of the said Richard. (3.) Drew up enfeoffment at Warrington, Lanc., for Sir Roger Bradsha, dec., of lands for which after Sir Roger's decease there was suit in the Duchy Chamber between Sir Thos. Butler and Ralph Bradsha, brother of Sir Roger. (4.) Enfeoffment drawn at Warrington for one Burye of Lancashire, as in case of Leftwyche. (5.) Indentures between Sir Wm. Brereton, of Cheshire, and Sir Piers Werberton and Eliz. his wife for marriages between either of their heirs apparent and the daughters of the other. (6.) Indenture of marriage of Sir Edw. Fytton's son and heir with Sir Piers Werberton's daughter. (7.) Jointure of the said Sir Edward and estate for a younger son. (8.) Jointure of one of the daughters of Sir Edward, married to one Stanley. (9.) Estate for Urian Brereton, of Hondford, of his wife's lands for life: said to be devised by Mr. Bromley before the Statute of Uses. (10.) Indenture of marriage between Thurstan Tyldesley and one Massye for marriage of Anne, d. of Tyldesley, to the s. and h. of Massye, for which it was said Tyldesley paid 200 mks. Jointure of said daughter and estate for a younger son. Estate for marriage money of daughter of Massye, which Massye, after the death of his ancestor, was ward of Sir Thomas Butler. (11.) Indenture of marriage for s. and h. of Starkye, of Stretton. (12.) Of s. and h. of one Tochett. (13.) Was shown by Sir Alex. Osbaldeston at Lancaster 2 drafts of assurances of lands to his younger sons, devised, as he said, by Mr. Molyneux and Mr. Moyle. Liked the latter best and caused it to be written. (14.) Draft for making estates for marriage of daughters of said Osbaldeston. (15.) Indenture between lady Savage and one Bulkley for marriage of s. and h. of Bulkley with a daughter of lady Savage. (16.) Note of a fine before Mr. Hynde for jointure of wife of one Burscogh. (17.) Jointure, &c., for wife of Barth. Hesketh, of Lancashire. (18.) Jointure of one Cotgreve's wife and of Sir Roger Brereton's daughter to be married to a gentleman of Wales, (19.) Certain estates, &c., for marriage of daughters of Sir Thos. Halsall are contained “in an office remaining before my lord St. John,” which are said to have been devised by Ric. More, a young man of Greys Inn. (20.) Similarly for daughters of Damport, of Henburye, devised by Mr. Sneyde, dec.
Has always thought it his duty to aid widows and pupils, as enjoined by the 4th chapter of Ecclesiasticus, and begs Cromwell's favour, as he is a poor young man, who must gain a living without exhibition or friends.

R. O. Paper headed “For Mistress Lacye” being a set of questions and answers as to the terms and conditions upon which she will let her manor of Canshern or Cantysherne to some person not named, “he to bear all manner of charges as well again our sovereign lord the King as again all other lords of whom the said manor is holden.”

6. [Cromwell's Goods.]
R. O. Very mutilated inventory of household goods. The commencement is lost the first intelligible items being lists of linen sheets, towels, napkins, &c., cloth and beads. Then comes what appears to be the furniture of a chamber (* * * a cloth stayned w[ith a table of t]he taking of the French King … with a carpet of Cawntisshe … with a tabernacle of the Nativity [of Our] Lord gilted and carved 2 pricketts [of] latten, 2 tables of my master his [vis]namy painted,” &c., “a great ball of astronomy,” chamber pot of pewter, “a great muros or looking glass of steel gilted,” &c.), followed by lists of gowns “in the press,” jackets, jerkins, caps, purses, &c. Furniture of another chamber (?), chairs, images, vestments, swords, gowns, hoods, &c. “The Hall”:—hanging of red and green say, with a border of the history of Susan; a cupboard, 6 cushions of verdure wrought with a puggarnard and roses; “a goodly table of the King's arms with two naked children standing upon whelks, painted and gilted; a table of my lord Marquis' arms painted and gilted with a mantegre and the unicorn; a great table of misery of Italy, painted; a table of the Passion of our Lord, painted; a table of Lucrecia Romana and a table of the Pity of Our Lady” * * * * shields, fire-irons, &c., and tables of the Salutation of our Lady, of 2 naked children, and of a naked child with a fiddle in his hand. Then comes the Buttery within the Hall, the Parlor (in which are tables of Our Lord, Our Lady and Lucrese, a cloth stained with the image of a man and a woman loucis (lovers?), an image puerile of our Lord set in a box, the King's arms and the Queen's with an eagle and a white greyhound), the Middle Chamber, the old parlor, kitchen, &c.
Pp. 16. A great part of each page lost by mutilation. Prefixed is a mutilated title page in which the following words alone are discernable: … Power (fn. 2) in Lon[don] … day of — (blank) in [t]he reigne of our sov[ereign lord King] Henry the VIII.
7. [Memoranda to be referred to Cromwell.]
R. O. To know my lord's pleasure in these things following.
To put his lordship in remembrance of a proportion for his apparel. How many sable skins the skinner shall have to make a tippet. Whether we shall continually put new furs into his jackets and jerkins, or sometimes to take out of his other jackets, to serve the same. What shall be done with the mantle of sables with the cape; with three remnants of flannel that have long been in the wardrobe. In the wardrobe of the beds, there lack sheets, counterpanes, beds and hangings. Whether the chamber wherein the steward lately lay shall be hanged and furnished with the rich bed and other things accordingly. What shall be done with the lodging that Mr. Wryothesley had, and the accounting house with all such writings that yet remaineth there. “Item, your pleasure for the back door towards Mistress Prior lodging, the door leading to the kitchen, of the which Mr. Ric. Crumwell (God be with him) spake partly of, unto whom we were accustomed to go for all such like things, now forced to trouble your lordship withal.”
P. 1. Endd.

9. Cromwell's Correspondence.
R. O. Memoranda of certain letters [addressed to Cromwell], viz.:—
1. From the bp. of Worcester “concerning answer to your former letters written for Felix and the allowance of his appellation,” complaining of an inhibition lately sent him out of the Arches and desiring that if Mr. Felix is to be deprived his benefice may be bestowed on Mr. Thyrstill. 2. From the Earl of Derby in favour of Will. Whitof who hath occupied the cell of Stanlowe, Cheshire, belonging to the late monastery of Whalley, and a ground called the Grene Warthe by agreement with Thos. Burgoyne and Ric.

From Sir Matthew Browne complaining of Jas. Skynner and desiring that he may be put out of the commission. 5. From Nich. Rudstone touching his communication with one Thos. Avir about a letter he delivered to your lordship, in which he talked of going as a soldier into Lincolnshire, and also wished you to write to the dean of York in his behalf (fn. 4) for the farm of certain tithes at Haton and Beleby in the tenures of old Sir Marmaduke Constable and Sir John Oliver, vicar of Haton (who, he says, conveyed the King's cattle from Fareby Abbey), and the tithe of Burmeby. 6. Certain depositions betwixt the Constables and Nich. Rudstone. 7. The resignations of the prior and monks of Coggishall and a letter sent to some of them.
P. 1. Endd.
10. — to —
R. O. I delivered a hook to your lordship concerning the King's commandment and pleasure, the duty I ought to do as comptroller of the works, and the answer I had from James Nedham and Mr. Wylliams, of Hampton Court. If Nedham or any other of the surveyors of the King's works did the King true service, they would not be discontented to have a comptrolment. If I be suffered to do my duty, the King will save much money and have his works executed in much shorter time. The King expects me to see how Nedham bestows his money, as his Grace commanded both me and Mr. Antony Denny, who can show what good I could do if I were allowed to exercise my office at Westminster and elsewhere according to my patent. By negligence of previous comptrollers, the surveyor has been suffered to do what he will and be his own comptroller, as Nedham is. Asks his lordship's help so that he may discharge his duty and deserve his fee. So long as he is not suffered to do it, no man has so much loss as the King.
Suggests that he should summon Nedham to show what he has to bear himself against the King's commandment and the writer's duty.
In the same hand as Vol. VII. No. 1012, which must have been written about the same time. Pp. 2. Not signed. Endd.
11. — to Cromwell.
R. O. “Please it your good lordship to know as towching my departur, which my husband makes himself innosent of, my lord, of truth I was creadably Inffo[rmed] by some that was of his counsel” that if I were once brought to bed I should not escape with my life. And as I was with child and might not have the meats I desired, “nor fire nor candle scant half to serve me and my children, but all my servants were better regarded than myself,” I departed. If my brethren had come to fetch me away there would have been manslaughter. He can lay no shame to me, for I dare bide the trial, “nor no occasion of right to keep my living from me.” I beg your Lordship to get me mine own, for I have nothing and am in daily fear to be cast into prison by my creditors. My husband might as well give me mine own as spend it upon another not so much to his worship, and more to his charge.
Pp. 3. Faded. Add. at the head: To, &c., my lord Privy Seal. Endd.: The complaint of a certain gentlewoman.
12. — to —
Calig. B. iii.
B. M.
“For lack of dew justyce not mynysteryd here unto me in your lordshypes card and bycause I se that ye go aboute by frawde and vyolence for to undoo me I do here to the settyng furthe of the kynges prerogatyve royall provoke and appeale unto my lord pryvy seall, vycar generall to the kynges most noble majestye.”
P. 1.
13. William Assheby to Cromwell.
R. O. Informs Cromwell of slanderous relations existing between Godfrey Somersall, (fn. 5) of Walton, Leic., and Alice, wife to William Blount, of the same town, which have caused Anne, the wife of the said Godfrey, to complain of him to the justices at the assizes at Leicester on St. James' Day last. It was there shown that she was in danger of her life, and the justices bound the said Godfrey to keep the peace; but, after going home with her husband, she was obliged to leave him and go to a friend's, while the said Godfrey continues in the manor of Walton, which he has by right of his wife, and the said Alice remains in the parsonage of that town, which Godfrey has to farm. Begs Cromwell to help the said Anne. Signed.
1. Add.: Lord Privy Seal and Vicegerent. Sealed. Endd.
14. Bastien le Haurlogier (fn. 6) to Cromwell.
R. O. Complains that one of his servants will do him no service notwithstanding Cromwell's orders. He has been told his duty “par le charcheur de vosmestre” (Westminster?), but he says he knows nothing of your lordship, nor who you are.
Fr. Headed: A millord du Privé Seel.
15. Francis Bedyngfeld to “Shargant” Wodhowse.
R. O. Has delivered my lord's letter to Master Wodhowse, “your brother,” who insists that he has gone through with Mr. Strange for the marriage of his daughter and the title of “Anmere.” He refers Bedyngfeld to Strange, who is now at London. Requests him to deliver “this my lord's letter,” and if he do not like his answer to go to one Mr. Carlton (fn. 7), one of my lord my master's chamber, and through him obtain an order to call Mr. Strange before my lord. Massyngham, St. Thomas' Day. Signed.
1. Add. Endd.: Sir Fraunces Bedingfeld.
16. Thomas Berthelet to Morisine.
R. O. I beg you to certify my good Lord and yours that his benevolent letters were read before my lord mayor and aldermen, but, I find, to little effect. My lord mayor told me he would make answer himself that but one stranger born was made freeman these 40 years, and therefore it could not be. If this is all the let, they might easily do it, as there have been so few, but if they can prove that the admission of this poor man would be injurious to their liberties, I would forbear my suit to the Lord Privy Seal and say no more. I fear the answer is somewhat feigned, for instead of one stranger made freeman this 40 years there have been six or more. Perhaps they do it to show that they esteem not the liberty of London so light as to admit a stranger born so suddenly when the King's natural subjects must do so long and painful service before they can enjoy it. “Then must we” humbly pray you to get my lord Privy Seal to write again to the mayor and aldermen.
Hol., p. 1. Add.
17. Thomas Borell, Priest, to Cromwell.
R. O. Petitions for aid, being a prisoner in the Counter of the Poultry in London by Cromwell's commandment, and without friends.
P. 1. Add. at the head: To, &c., Lord Thomas Cromwell, Lord Privy Seal. Endd.
18. Bowyer to Cromwell.
R. O. Coact with extreme poverty and imprisonment, I have no refuge but to lament myself to your Lordship for deliverance out of prison and succour. Have pity on my poor wife, the bearer, who has come from York to visit me. Also have pity on my two sons, arrested in York, at the suit of Miles Newton, because they kept, under me, the King's water at York called Fosse. Newton, their common clerk, pretended that the royalty of the water was given to the city; but I think no more was granted to the city than the fee for keeping, 9l. 2s. 6d. To avoid idleness, I have devised a table by the compound manual, whereby the five moveable feasts, dominical letter and prime, may be found by the casting of two dice for 40 years to come; but I cannot send it formally for lack of colours.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Privy Seal. Endd.
19. Sir Roger Cholmley to Cromwell.
R. O. I have received your Lordship's letters showing that I might with good conscience cause the bailiff of the manor of Kenyngton to seize the lands now in variance between John Henbury and John Twyford and the children of Walter Alpe. It is found by the court rolls of the manor that in 19 Hen. VIII. Robert Tournour was owner of the said lands and surrendered them to the King to be granted to one John Cromwell and Joan his wife and heirs of their bodies with remainder to the right heirs of Robert Tournour; that the said John Cromwell and his wife died without issue and that Walter Alpe, who was next heir of Rob. Tournour, viz., son of Ric. Alpe, and Agnes his wife, Tournour's sister and sole heir, was admitted, and died, leaving issue Stephen and Thomas, and according to the custom of the manor the lands descended to the said Thomas as younger son and heir. He is now five years old, and his wardship is granted to Twyford, so I cannot dispossess him. Signed.
2. Add.: Lord Cromwell, Lord Privy Seal. Endd.
20. Thomas Derbye to Cromwell.
R. O. Before his acquaintance with Cromwell, when he was, as it were, almost dead through ingratitude, was brought to life again by his charitable help. Expresses his thankfulness both to the King and Cromwell. It was his chance or rather the will of God, that Truman should by his means be brought before Cromwell. The same Truman “showed forth divers things afore hid, which (being done in deed out of course and fashion of learning) had nevertheless light in them, as a man more and more seeking faithfully the truth shall find the same.” Upon the ground and principles of Truman, has presented to Cromwell without the knowledge of any man, two several books which open secret mysteries, far past the wit or natural gift of man; “a thing most necessary to be looked upon, first, specially of the indifferent godly that will think God is of power to do things besides their excellent learnings, as they call it, which so many years hath reigned, and now the fruits at the last appear.”
Asks Cromwell, seeing that he has another charge that requires a whole man's diligence, whether he shall proceed farther, as he is desirous to do. It is a most godly matter, the principles whereof known, the rest is easy and will be done in short space. Doubts not that all things will be so plainly set forth, that no man which is of God shall be offended. God has ordained that his truth in the Scriptures shall come out by the unlearned babes and children rather than by the wise. Never saw more godly qualities and stedfastness in any one than in Truman. Having wife and children, he gave up his occupation, upon his faithful mind. After his long lying here, and his having spent such money as Derby might well spare him, at Derby's going westward (fn. 8) he returned scarce with as much as would bring him, where, Derby thinks, he found less. Has not heard of him since. Begs Cromwell to help him.
Hol., pp. 3. Add.: Lord Privy Seal. Endd.
21. Lawrence Elviden to Lord Chancellor Audeley.
R. O. Petition of Lawrence Elviden, grocer, of London, now exercising the science of writing in Kingsstreate within the limits of Westminster palace, accusing Wm. Barton, priest, and Ric. Smyth, of London, “called mere surgeon,” of treason. Has heard Barton say the King was a traitor to God in presuming to take upon him the Pope's authority. It appears that the King had presented one Sir John Jaques to Barton's chantry, but that Barton withheld it. He has also said that a vengeance would strike the Realm “as well for the King's miserable living and presumption of the Pope's power as also for the offence of them that holdeth with his Grace in that behalf.” Both Barton and Smyth have said “that the King was a cokcolde and so should worthily die” and “that you and the lord Chancellor of England now being are the greatest thieves and traitors living within this realm, and trusted once to see your heads leap from your bodies.” Lately Barton said that Smyth told him, by a book of prophecy, “that the King's most honorable person should be torn in pieces with his own mule” and that Smyth wore a chain made at a forge in his own house of two parts gold, the third part silver, and the fourth copper. One Wm. Smyth, goldsmith, of the parish of St. John Sacres lately complained to petitioner and Barton that Ric. Smyth would not pay him for work done “notwithstanding of late he had a piece of work of his whereby he had given the said Richard a Flaunders Geke, but and if he did put such another piece of work in his hands he would, saving your honour, make his ars breke his neke.” Thinks he referred to the chain. Robt. Clerk, of Westminster, has seen Ric. Smyth hurriedly hide wedges of gold when he has come suddenly into his house and found him at work at his forge.
Gives particulars of the occasions upon which the above offences were done and names of the witnesses; those to the article “touching your lordship and the lord Privy Seal” are Smith's wife and mother and one Newcom, glazier.
A broad sheet written on both sides. Add.: at the head: To the right honourable Sir Thomas Awdeley (fn. 9) knight, lord chancellor (fn. 9) of (fn. 9) England (fn. 9).
22. Ellen Ewer to Cromwell.
R. O. Is the widow of the unfortunate Thomas Ewer, who has lately suffered death under the King's laws. Has two young children, the eldest little over two years old. By her husband's death, William Webbe, archdeacon of the privelege and sanctuary of Westminster, has obtained a gift of the King not only of an annuity of 7l. 10s. but of all the goods and bills of her said husband, so that she has nothing left but the clothes on her body, and although Webbe, on the day her husband was arraigned at the Guildhall, declared in open court that as freely as the King had given him the said goods, the annuity alone excepted, he gave them again to her, which saying, the Recorder will testify, he refuses to fulfill his promise, saying that her husband, at the time of his imprisonment, cost him over 40s., though she can prove he did not spend more than 16d. upon him.
P. 1. Add. at head: Lord Privy Seal.
23. John Freman to [Cromwell.]
R. O. Pope informs me that the King thinks I have not truly handled me towards his Highness in Lincolnshire, and that your lordship made answer in my behalf as you have always done. I cannot do you service in recompense. I was of your preferment both in that office and in all the rest. Tell his Grace if I have profited 10l. at his expense then let me lose my office and everything, and be turned into my shirt. I dare not come to your lordship, being so far out of quiet.
Hol., p. 1. Endd.
24. William Fox, Maltman, to Cromwell.
R. O. Petition for payment of 4l. due to him by the late Mrs. Wellyfed whom he served with malt, as her servants Molbery and Marmaduke Sandes can testify. Mr. Richard Cromwell says he is neither executor nor administrator.
P. 1. Add. at head: Lord Cromwell, Lord Privy Seal.
25. The Glaziers.
R. O. Petition of “the felishipe and fremen of the crafte of Glasyers crafte” to lord [Cromwell] against Peter Nicholson, a foreign glasier, who keeps five foreign workmen contrary to the act [14 & 15 Hen. VIII. c. 2] and imports glass ready made, “whereby that our English men cannot be set in work.”
P. 1. Endd.
26. Alice Good to Cromwell.
R. O. Complaint of Alice, wife of John Good of London, dyer, against Alice Cely, wife of a London pewterer, who by procurement of Thos. Cheyny, of London, salter, three quarters of a year ago, cited her husband in the spiritual court, and caused him vexatiously to be arrested along with Will. Archer, brewer, and Ric. Saunders, clothworker. The matter was heard before Cromwell, who commanded Cheyney not to intermeddle, but he still interferes.
P. 1. Add. at the head: Lord Cromwell, Lord Privy Seal and knight of the Garter. Endd.
27. John Gostwyk to Cromwell.
R. O. May it please you to buy of lord Latimer, when he next comes before your lordship, the manor of Ranhall, as cheap as you can get it, and I will give you 100 marks, it is so necessary for me. Signed.
1. Not add., but endd.: A remembrance to my lord Privy Seal for the manor of Ranhall, com. Bedford.
28. John Gostwyk to Thos. Averey.
R. O. Praying you to help this gentleman, my very friend, to my Lord's presence. Scribbled this day going to horseback. Signed.
1. Add.: To my fellow Thomas Averey. Sealed.
29. Jaques Granada to Cromwell.
R. O. Not being able to ascertain what way they meant to go or when their departure would be, as they were supping not in [the writer's] house, but in another house adjoining, did not part company with the young man, but brought him to supper (? “asena” for a cena?) to my lord of Winchester's, and made him good cheer (“bona segra”) that he might have no doubt of him, and sent word by the King's saddler (fn. 10) (? “selaro”) “el qualle e soberstante a la gustisia de seduarc (Southwark) et omo da bene,” to have secret watch kept on the house where they were supping, until I should come with the other young man. Went to their lodging and waited till they came, when the saddler presented them with wine and fruit. Said they appeared to be great persons and that they ought to visit the King before they left the country. He replied that he was willing to do so, but thought he ought first to speak to the ambassador. Advised him strongly to visit Cromwell first and prepared a bark, and he will come to Greenwich (Granux) this morning; and I will cause him to wait in the park up in my chamber in the tower (et faro lo aspettar in el parqe la suso in la tore in camera mia) till I have spoken with your Excellency.
P.S.—The host where they were supping came from France along with them and is also a Frenchman. For this reason, Mr. Actun and I did not wish them to speak together. He therefore keeps the host with him all this night at his house and I keep guard on the others. This morning his servant wanted to go to the ambassador's house, but I caused the door to be shut, for I thought it best he should speak with your Excellency first.
Hol., Ital., pp. 2. Add: el Signor de Privesel. Endd.
30. John Gyyes to Cromwell.
R. O. Thomas Matson, baily of Barkley, keeper of Whytleyff, is departed. I beg you will move the King for me for his office, which His Grace once gave me, by signed bill, by means of Mr. Norris, and you promised to be good lord to me when it should fall. I would come up myself, but am hurt by my horse falling upon me. You sent me word by Robert Acton “that I should stay the lordship of Hollt for you.”
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Privy Seal.
31. John Gyse to Cromwell.
R. O. Is informed that Nic. Wykes makes suit to Master Cownt Rollar for his son, “which is his servant.” I beg your interference, else “I ham like to lese hit.” The man that hath it is very sore sick, as my brother Anthony can show you.
Hol., (fn. 11) p. 1. Add.: Lord Privy Seal.
32. Lucy Harpar to Cromwell.
R. O. Accept this my rude letter as I cannot come myself, I am so punished with sorrow. I fear I shall receive injuries at Master Harper's hand, such as never poor woman sustained. He always makes such boast of your Lordship. He would have half my land in fee simple, and I am sure he has made false reports of me. You know how unkindly he “cast” me and refused me any relief, and in spite of all entreaties, he has driven me seven years to seek my living. At his Grace's commandment, I brought in my indentures, trusting to have justice from your Lordship, but have had no comfort except your Lordship's promise not to make an end without my agreement.

R. O. Has been long a suitor to the King for recompense of her jointure, which was assured to her on certain lands before the King's interest therein.

ii. 271.
Has been long a prisoner within her husband's castle of Hungerford, where no creature dare come near her at any time but those appointed by him, who have heretofore and do daily seek all means to rid her in secret out of her life, as is known to all the country. Lord Hungerford obtained a commission from Cromwell that he might have a divorce for incontinence, which she denies and accuses him of, and Cromwell told him to make her a yearly allowance. Supposes this to be the cause of his stay, for it will grieve him not a little to depart with one groat at any time, though she is not of herself owner of one penny, nor has any earthly friend but Cromwell able to help her, or house to resort to, or any that will dare speak for her to Cromwell for fear of her Lord's displeasure. He has discharged Cromwell's commissioners assigned, without any examination or amendment of his demeanor towards her. Is in worse case than ever, being continually locked up in one of the towers of his castle, as she has been these three or four years, under the custody of his chaplain, Sir John a Lee, who has once or twice poisoned her, as he will not deny upon examination. When he heard that Cromwell desired lord Hungerford to give her a yearly pension, he promised him he would soon rid her for that matter and ease him of that money, if he might have the keeping of her again, as he now has. Is sure he intends to keep his promise. Has no other meat and drink but what comes from him, and brought by her husband's fool, continually her old servitor. Fears more and more to taste it and is often fain to drink water, “and sometime, for lack of water, saving your honour and reverence, mine own water, or else I should die for lack of sustenance.” Would have died long ago, had not poor women of the country, knowing her husband's demeanour always to his wives, brought meat and drink to her grate window at night, for the love of God, for she has no money to pay them. Has not had four groats from her husband for four years. Is like to perish very soon, unless Cromwell will command her husband, whom she believes to be in London, to bring her and Sir John a Lee before him. He will find out many strange things about her husband's demeanour.
Wishes to be divorced upon reasonable causes, or else her husband to be required to let her out of prison. Would then come up on foot with some poor body to Cromwell for the security of her life. Will not longer continue this wretched life with him. Had rather destroy herself or beg her living from door to door. Signed Eleisbet Ho'rford.

R. O. I pray you use me “in this matter betwixt the vicar of Narburgh, (fn. 12) and me, and his own nephew,” that my enemies may not have cause to rejoice and my honesty decay in my country. At my return I shall declare to your Lordship, in writing, the whole matter. If they be comforted in this, I will rather “suggen” (sojourn) with other men than dwell in my own house. These were no men meet to examine this matter, considering the malice they bear me. My mother-in-law intended to stay with me, but, seeing me thus ordered in my own house, she sends word she is afraid to come, “and saith plainly that ye be not my good lord.” What man would not desire to be avenged of their cruelty? I pray you write to the vicar to remain with me. When I speak with your Lordship next, I shall obey your order. I beg that my son may have a copy of their certificate, whereunto I would make answer to your Lordship. I can prove by two or three witnesses that before sealing, the indenture was read to him both by me and his friends, and [he] sealed and subscribed his name both to the indenture and the schedule.Signed.

R. O. According to your commandment, I have asked the servants of William Taillor of the sign of the Sun in Ludgate, how their fellow, the prentice, John Maneryng, came by the bill I showed you. They say he had it of one Damport, servant to Lord Zouche, but have forgotten who the other gentlemen, at the reading thereof, were. On examination of Maneryng, who was absent, “I am sure my Lord shall at length thereof know the plans.” If I hear of more such bills, I shall move my master's friends in Northamptonshire to get hold of them.

R. O. Of late has come into these parts the widow, as she says, of Sir Robert Traforde, and sister to the lord Scrobe of the North, in great heaviness and sorrow, declaring she is with child, which indeed appears. She says she brought out of “that parts” both money and plate, but where it is, as yet I know not, or I had informed your Lordship ere this. “A great part of her thought is for the conveyance of it out of my lord her brother's house, which had the custody thereof to her use,” as she doubts he will be displeased. Her confidence is in your Lordship. She required succour in my house till she were delivered; and I was content for money, and beg to know by bearer how to use myself. Her mind is so troubled and her wits so unsteadfast that I dare not be out of the way. My poor house at Rokeborne, the 12th “of this present month.”

R. O. The King gave his brethren (fn. 13) and him his Highness' part of a forfeit taken on the Thames going beyond sea. It is now “preysed” above the content of the statute, which is a plain forfeit, and the “preysars” will lay down as much money as they have preysed the cloths at. Now the merchant has no remedy, “but only to get out a recognizance to make plea to defraud the King of his right.” Begs Cromwell to stay the recognizance, which, by prolonging the time, would be a great hindrance to Knyvet and his brethren.

Smyth on examining her water said she had three imposthumes in her body which would grow into one, and demanded 40s. to cure her. As she had not the money she declined his medicine at the time, but afterwards he told her she would soon die if she did not take a purge, for which he made her give him 5s. She took it in his house and he said she might go home, but she was forced on the way to take one Mr. Gough's house in Cheapside (else she would have died in the street), and to remain there all the afternoon; then, when she got home, was confined to her room half a year.
ii. Of — Dormyll. Smyth gave Nich. Dormyll a potion, of which he died in four days, though he had assured him of his life, and that he should eat and drink within that period “as well as any man mought do.”

Asks him to speak for him to the King or to the Council. “For if they shall thus use me I may in time have recourse to my friends, who, I hope, will not fail me in so just a necessity. And finally, because I see, if God put not remedy, I shall come to this point (peradventure answering that it shall be given, I wot not in whose name) you shall shut this dore with them, saying that rather I will ask alms for God's sake and die for hunger than do any such thing.” The sum that is owing you will see by this account.

R. O.
The last time I was with you at Calais, I came purposely to see the welfare of your Lordship and my Lady, and welcome you home out of England according to my duty, setting my own business apart. I expected better thanks than I had, for my Lady insinuated that I and my wife had thought scorn that she should do her service. This we never said or thought. I prayed her ladyship at that time, as I do now your Lordship, to have the matter tried before our faces. It grieved me most of all that your Lordship should think of us so. My Lady told me that she was well pleased she met me in another man's house, otherwise I should have known her mind further. I answered I hoped I had not offended her Ladyship to rail with me, but this I said unadvisedly. If my Lady report that I told her the same time that she should scold with me, I will make good by the Sacrament, no such words ever came out of my mouth. * * *

If I and my high friends were to offer my lord of Hertford as much land of my inheritance to release the land in Gloucestershire, which is over 140l., and my lord Lisle to give me but a small sum of money, I would refuse. Unless my lord Lisle will give me 6,000l. in ready money, and I to have everything as in my last letter, keeping possession and having the land to my heirs male, I will not depart from mine inheritance.

[1539] Will. Rytson, Ric. Sandes, and Thos. Beke were brought in by the bailly of Westminster by my lord Privy Seal's commandment on suspicion of felony, 28 Sept., and there continued a long time. The said Sandes is household servant with my lord Deputy, and expects to have my room (fn. 23) of my Lord's gift if anything happen to me; for which reason he will not stick to feign what he can to my hindrance; and when the Council had examined 40 or 50 persons and found nothing against me they were fain to take this fellow Sandes for a witness, though it was well known my Lord his master had borne me ill will ever since my first coming to town. I can prove this if I may have a commission to indifferent persons of the Council to examine my Lord on oath, and also such persons as I shall name, whether my Lord has openly said several times that he could not abide the sight of me, and that he would either get me out of the town “and a sort of such heretic knaves as I was,” or he would not tarry himself till Michaelmas. Moreover, my Lord and those of the Council that have written do not show themselves indifferent judges, because contrary to the Act of Parliament [25 Hen. VIII. c. 14] they have kept me in prison from Low Sunday without accusing me to any ordinary till I came here.

17. John Caroo to Viscount Lisle.
R. O. Is upon the King's walls as a prisoner. Begs lord Lisle to send for the parties that were present and heard all the business. Their names are William Aschtwn and John Brygges, soldiers of the King's retinue; John Rycharsone and Edmund Edall, soldiers of the Castle, “and John Rooke, owyre seore off the Kyngges laborarse.”

18. John Cheryton to Lord Lisle.
Five letters of John Cheryton to lord Lisle have already appeared in this Calendar, one of them misplaced, and six others have been overlooked owing to peculiarities in the dates. It is therefore desirable to give the true chronology of the whole correspondence as follows:—
(1.) [Dated “Bordes” (Bordeaux) 15 Feb. 1533. [This was written in the year 1533 according to the usual modern computation, not in 1533–4, as was supposed.] See Vol. VII. No. 191.
(2.) Written from Bordeaux, and dated 1 March 1533. [Not 1533–4 as supposed.] See Vol. VII. No. 274.
(3.) Dated Pisa, 24 Sept. 1533. See Vol. VI. No. 1147.
(4.) John Chereton, of Exeter, to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Wishes to know the King's pleasure touching the ordnance he left at Leghorn. Had better write to Mr. Gonstone let one of his ships bring it home at their next going into the Levant. Will come to London and deliver him the securities. Will be glad if Gonstone's ship brings home his son and heir left with the merchant that has the ordnance. Mr. Degory Granffelde has come from his house in Cornwall to Exeter to know about it.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Deputy of Calais. [Undated, about March 1534?]
(5.) John Chereton to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Anthony de Marynes could get him no surety for the ordnance. Therefore he would not lend it but has left it at Leghorn in the hands of Capones, one of the richest merchants of Florence, who is bound before the duke of Florence for its safe keeping. In the event of war with England, I had it appraised by six merchants. It is valued at 200 ducats of gold, for which his brother in England shall give goods of the same value in the event of its being lost. There are 11 pieces of the ordnance he had at Portsmouth, and two pieces of brass had from Lisle at Porchester Castle. Gives an account of his transactions touching the ordnance, of which John a Borough is charged with one brazen piece. Has a licence for 200 tuns of wine. Has laden about 80 tuns already. Intends to bring part of it to London. Will send Lisle some. Would have sent four tuns from Bordeaux by John Perse, your servant of Weymouth, but he would not carry it. Wishes him to send a commission for him to be victualler, that his goods may not be arrested, and a poor living be secured for his wife. Wishes to know whether he shall pay Nores the money that was paid to “Sir Thos. Denes ys sarvant, Forsse” or else pay it to Lisle. As for the King of Portugal's money, Anthony de Marynes has it allowed in the sale of the ship.

(6.) John Cheriton to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Has received his letter by Prowze. If his Lordship will continue his goodness, as he has so graciously written, hopes within one year to make him full recompense of all things, and to pay all his creditors besides. Is undone for ever if he is put to any business at this voyage. Begs him, therefore, for the bitter Passion of Christ to admit him a victualler of Calais, that no man may arrest the wines he has brought home. A little thing will satisfy the claims of Nicholas Potte Care (Apothecary) on Lisle, as he has desired by his servant Hose, when the writer has settled his accounts with him and John à Boro. Pottecare has become the servant of Sir William Corteney, who will do what he can against any of Lisle's servants. Begs that the licence may be sent to Geo. Baron's house in London at the Horse Head in Shep (Cheap), or else to Exeter, and the writer will send by the bearer of it the black satin for Lisle's gown for which his Lordship wrote.

(7.) John Chereton to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Heard at Hampton, from John Koper, that the Mary and the John Baptist, the King's ship, were lost at Byllyle (Belleisle). Men of Hwll, coming from Bordes, brought the tidings. Begs he will be good to him or else he is undone. Wishes a place in the butlerage with my lord Chief Baron. Sir Thos. Denes has plainly told John Wat that he will have his whole money. A King's messenger at Salisbury had been to Weymouth and summoned many poor men and women before the Council, where it was said that Water Porttlonde had your commission to make them a general acquittance, and has done so and taken above 40l. They say that Varnam and Torner have used them ill. One of them is Raynalde, who forfeited his ship to you for the anchor he stole. Written at Salisbury.
Hol., p. 1. Add. [Undated, probably before November 1534].
(8.) John Chereton to Lord Lisle.
R. O. The Mare (Mary) is come homs to Hampton. Begs him not to take any present of Anthony Gethott, of Nyckalyne, or of Anthony de Maryne, that was merchant in her, unless it be worth 100l. stg.; for he boasted in Ireland, Calais, and Italy, that however much he may have offended you he can make his peace with a fair word and a present of a pony, if my lady were not by. De Maryne opened Lisle's letters and copied them, and he said your commission to me for the ship “was to bad, your lorde schyp ys aowner (honor) resarvyd, for to wypp hes schoys.” The said De Maryne had more than 600l. brought to him in Ireland out of England, and carried privy letters out of England for the Pope, which he delivered at Pisa. He said, moreover, that he did not care for your Lordship who had lost your office of admiral and gone to Calais. The master's name is Thos. Tottyn alias Gyllam, the falsest wretch in Christendom. Thanks his lordship for what he sent to London by Syntyll, Mr. Degre Granffyld's servant, and for his letter to Sir Thos. Denes to make Philip Forse deliver my obligation of 20l., for Thos. Nores has paid him. Philip Forse has taken out a writ against me, which was contrary to the arrangement made by Lisle.

(9.) Dated 1536, 24 March, at Marseilles. See Vol. X., No. 538.
(10.) John Chereton to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Has sent him more than 20 letters to know what he shall do with the ordnance. “My lord, I have gontola (gone to law) her thys ij er (year) and mor wethe kuownte de Tanto,” great seneschal of Provence, and have had four sentences against him, but can get no justice, though it has cost me 1,000 cr. more than the ordnance is worth. Has sent his licence under his seal. Mons. de Barbose took away the ordnance to Synte Vettorys when the Emperor was before Marseilles. Gives a further account of his troubles. Can have 20l. for the ordnance. The Great Master of France, who is the Count's father-in-law, has ordered it to be delivered to me, but he does not regard the letter. Has bought a ship to carry it to England; for here no mariners will sail thither, because of the wars between the Emperor and France. Wants his commission to sell the ordnance, but it must be written in Latin. Sent his ship to Constantinople on Whitsunday last, and has letters that she will be here by the end of May, when he will receive for her freight 200 cr. a month. With Lisle's commission to sell the ordnance, he will then sell both ship and ordnance and come home by land. Has suffered great losses; for his ship was driven ashore here and damaged, and afterwards he was taken by the Turks a slave to Barbary, and the baron Syn Blankyrd ransomed him for 250 cr. Is undone if Lisle do not pity him. On the 15 Aug. the French king sent 13 galleys to the Turk and two to bring “the prense of Mallffa at home, and the cheffe in bassathor of thes galles ys the baron Syn Blankard.” They were with the Great Turk at Patras 28 Aug., had an answer from him and left for Marseilles, but were dispersed by a storm in the Gulf of Venice, and no tidings have yet come whether they be lost or safe. The King ordered the two galleys that came home to return and seek the rest. The bearer will tell Lisle of the great battle between the Turks and them (fn. 25) and Andrea Doria, and how many galleys they took, and how many Turks they slew. He is a gentleman of Rhodes, a younger brother going home to his friends for help and has a crown a month from the Religion. There is a galleon of Rhodes at Marseilles, of which the captain, Mr. Teryll, received kindness from Lord Lisle at Calais. Hearing of Chereton being here he sent for him and has invited him daily to dinner and supper and lent him money, for lord Lisle's sake. Hopes, therefore, my lord will be special good lord to this gentleman, for he is patron of the said galleon. His name is Mr. Uppton. Begs his lordship to send him 20 cr. till his ship come. Will be with him before Midsummer day, and bring him the money for the ordnance in payment of his debts.

R. O. Commendations to Lady Lisle. Came from London on St. Martin's Eve in Hugh Colton's ship, which carried 23 tuns of beer, 7 barrels of butter, a hogshead of ale, 2 fardels of kersey, 3 yards of scarlet for Mr. Porter, which cost 12s. a yard, my lady's petticoat and “hor for chelenes” in one pack, 15l. in angels and many other things. When in the Downs, were boarded by a Fleming, who took away a tun of beer. In consequence of this, lost their tide, which would have brought them to Kyles (Calais). The wind changed and drove them to Dover, where they lay four days. On Friday at 12 came out and ran a quarter over and then ran in again to Dover and lay at anchor. The anchor “doveff” and the ship was broken on the rocks. Was like to perish, for no man durst come near, but at last a boat came and saved them. The goods were all driven on shore and all that was good taken away. Begs lord Lisle to write to the Comptroller and Mayor to make search for his goods, which came to land, as the bearer can tell, who saved his life.

The bearer, accompanied by the English merchant who has recovered some goods saved, will declare to you that delivery of their merchandise was made into the hands of the host of the Image of St. John, in whose house the English merchant was lodged, and as soon as delivery is made of the wines to which these merchants lay claim, the like will be done to your men.

It is a good token, for ye have the love of the people as much as any woman that ever I heard of. Be joyful in our Lord, and no doubt He will send you comfort. It is a token of the love of God when he sends trouble, and especially to them that be good. There is no need to counsel you to take patience. I am sorry that you should have any grief, for I know you of old, for you would no trouble to any living creature. We heard you and my lord would come into these parts. I and many others would be right glad if it might so be.

37. Thos. Hall to Lady Lisle.
R. O. Though unknown to her ladyship, desires her favour and that she will speak to my Lord in his behalf. Is a prisoner for debt, through misfortune by the sea. Would gladly give to the merchant who has imprisoned him for 30l. all the money owing to him in England. Desires to be taken into her ladyship's service for 40s. a year. Would give the merchant also 40s. yearly to come out of debt. Begs she will speak to Mr. Scryven to help him, as my Lord referred the matter to him. The bearer is his wife before God, whom he would have married before leaving England but has constrained to go from place to place and come here for succour. Intended to marry her here at St. Peter's secretly last week, but was disappointed by being put in prison. Said she was his wife that he might not shame her among her friends. Offers her a white ambling gelding of his in England, worth 20 angels of gold. The merchant means to take passage tonight and leave him here in prison. Begs her assistance for his wife, who is with child, else here in prison, “stopyde” with ill airs, he will die.

Begs her to tell Skryven that the merchant will be paid. Will then be delivered out of prison, and if he can go to England, doubts not that he will be able in five months to agree with the merchant for 20 nobles more. Rayffe Iwers and one Bothe, an archer, will be bound for him, but the merchant and Mr. Skryvan will not take them unless Lady Lisle promises to see that he pays them. If he stops here any longer in this air, will be “stoffed up” so that it will be his death, by which the merchant will lose.

Thanks her for the gulls, of which he had ten, and his cousin Digorye other ten. This year they were very few. The raven has destroyed the harnsews, so that none could be had. It has destroyed above a dozen “sygys,” and cannot be destroyed as yet by any means.
Will attend to her affairs as if they were his own. Is sorry he has no token he can send her. The morrow after Midsummer day.

Would be glad to come to Calais as lady Lisle wishes. “With the good help of my good lord, I would then trust to make you to say that I am not your pricklouse nor knave, but mercy ever cry to have.” Is glad to hear of her good recovery, and that she has her health, and that lord Lisle is so gentle and kind to her at all times, and most at her uttermost grievance, 31 Jan.
