Business:—Two letters written to Norfolk, being in the North on the King's affairs, the one certifying that at his suit Sir John Wythrington should be marshal of Berwick vice Thos. Musgrave, dec.; the other desiring him that, as Martin Balkesky, burgess of Edinburgh, and servant to the king of Scots, complained that Hen. Brandlyn, of Newcastle, wrongfully withheld from him 500 ducats and 100 cr. soleil, he should order the mayor of Newcastle to rectify the matter. Letter to Ric. Pollard, one of the General Surveyors, that if he thought the grant of an annuity of 10l. out of Bosworth lordship, Leic., made by lord Lisle and lady Eliz, his late wife, dec., to Thos Stydal, of Turvey, was valid, it should be allowed.

|R. T., 153.||
Hearing that a Portuguese ship laden with spices was wrecked near his port of Plymouth and was being spoiled by the natives of the place and the crew of the ship, he at once sent commissioners to punish the spoilers and restore the goods to the owners. Meanwhile arrived an envoy from king John, who saw all that was done, and can bear witness that Henry omitted nothing in recovering the goods and ministering justice, and has professed himself satisfied.

|27 Feb.||571. Robert Wauchop to Cardinal Farnese.|
In reply to letters of 5 Feb., received on the 25th, promises to do his part. although doctrine will avail little, for the Protestants ignore the words of the Fathers. The dukes of Bavaria and Brunswick are indignant at the suspension of the ban of the Empire upon pretext of safe-conduct to the Diet. Shows that it is the Emperor's interest to bring Germany back to obedience to the Church. Pogio has been kind to him. Modena's diligence in the conference has been misrepresented to the Emperor. Ratisbon, 27 Feb. 1541.

|28 Feb.||573. Queen Margaret of Scotland to Henry VIII.|
32,646 f. 147.
Has received Henry's writing by his servant Berwick. Thinks he has misunderstood her letter by Sir John Campel. Only wrote a letter of recommendation for him because he has married her kinswoman; but gave him no credence. Henry asks her to write at length how she is treated. Reminds him that she has divers times written, and reported by Mr. Sadler, that she has not been well treated, as to her dower and living, since the death of the King her husband, but could get no remedy. Desires only, as she is his only sister, that she may live like a princess, as the King their father intended. As she sent a credence with his servant Berwick and cannot write everything, sends a book which shows what she should have yearly. Showed it to the lords of her son's Council, who could not deny it, knowing in whose hands the lands are. Desires him to take a copy of the book and return it, and refers her troubles to his wisdom. As to her lands of Dunbar that the King her son “hath in set for a sober thing,” she was constrained to “set” it, as Mr. Sadler saw when here. Edinburgh, 28 Feb.
Has given credence to Berwick to show my lord of Norfolk.

After writing to him she remembered some other things which this bearer Berwick will show. Reminds him that she is the King's only sister. Asks for speedy answer, for she is often in further parts of this realm.
Hol., p. 1. Begins: My lord and cousin.
|28 Feb.||575. Francis I. to Marillac.|
Has received his letters, especially those of the 12th. Was pleased to learn the honorable language held by Norfolk, at his departure to the Borders, and by the chief ministers there. Has letters from Du Bies and De Saveuse that, after long debate with the English deputies, they have decided nothing. Daily expects De Saveuse with full report of how things remain. Other points in Marillac's letters require no answer. Will only say that advices from Germany, from the Emperor's court and elsewhere, do not show that the Emperor will do much there, with all his intrigues and secret practices, or that anything will come of all the Diets held and to be held. Francis's allies among the princes of Germany give daily proof of their love to him. Is hourly expecting the Sieur de Rincon from the Grand Seigneur, who, as will be seen hereafter, comes for no small matter. Has heard from several places that the marriage of the Emperor with the king of England's daughter is concluded, but, having heard nothing of it from Marillac, does not know what to think. Marillac must secretly investigate this.

|28 Feb.||576. Montmorency to Marillac.|
Besides what the King writes, would have him know that the English ambassador, lord William, today told the Privy Council that the deputies his master sent to decide the difference about the bridge of the Cauchoire, wrote that they had so amply justified his claim that the French deputies knew not what to reply, and so departed; and the ambassador prayed that the matter might be dropped. He was answered that the French deputies had, on the contrary, clearly shown the King's right and possession from time immemorial and offered proofs, and that the English deputies, being unable to gainsay it, had departed referring the whole matter to their master. From the above Marillac will know what to say, if the matter is mentioned. He will do well to let the King know secretly and quickly what is said of this marriage of the Emperor with the daughter of the king of England. The King is well.

|28 Feb.||577. Baron George ab Heideck to Henry VIII.|
St. P., viii.
Has been accustomed to write the news of these parts; but for several months there has been none worth writing. The Emperor came to Ratisbon, 23 Feb., with few forces, and few of the German princes have as yet assembled. The brothers William and Lewis dukes of Bavaria, Henry duke of Brunswick, and the bps. of Bamberg and Eichstadt (Aystetensis) are present, and the Emperor daily discusses with them and other papists what to do at the Council. The Lutherans or Protestants are coming upon the Emperor's safe-conduct, but have a long journey to reach Ratisbon. The Pope, the French king, and the Venetians have made a league. The French king still seeks Milan, which cannot be done without war. Spain requires the Emperor back again. The Turk makes great preparations and will not leave Hungary. Our learned men have left Worms without coming to a decision (sine fructu) and the business is deferred to Ratisbon. Will give Henry's ambassador with the Emperor any aid he can; and send the conclusions taken at these Councils. Neuburg, last of Feb. ao 41. Signed.

|578. Richard Hilles to Henry Bullinger.|
Before Whitsuntide three persons were burned in the suburbs of London, in the quarter which belongs to the diocese of Winchester, (fn. 2) because they denied Transubstantiation and had not received the Sacrament at Easter. So it is thought they were brought to the stake by the procurement of the bp. of Winchester, “just as he burned, shortly after, (fn. 3) a crazed man of the name of Collins.” This man had been kept in prison for two or three years, I do not know exactly for what. Once, when passing a crucifix to which processions had sometimes been made (principally by Spanish sailors on arriving safe in port) he aimed an arrow at the idol and struck its foot, calling upon it to defend itself or punish him if it could. Many persons, however, say this was not the cause of his imprisonment, but exclamations that he made against the nobility, against whom he cited Scripture, Knows positively that when Lambert was confined with him in the same prison (that Lambert who was condemned by the King himself for his opinions shortly before Burcher fled from England), four or five days before he was brought to the stake, Collins was not so crazy but that he could apply in Lambert's behalf certain texts from the New Testament and Psalms, e.g., “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake,” &c.
Before St. John Baptist's day it was whispered the King intended to divorce his queen Anne, sister of the duke of Gelderland, whom he had married publicly at Epiphany after last Christmas. Courtiers first observed that he was much taken with another young lady, (fn. 4) very small of stature, whom he now has, and whom he was seen crossing the Thames to visit, often in the day time and sometimes at night. The bp. of Winchester provided feastings for them in his palace, but it was looked upon as a sign of adultery, not of divorce. At the beginning of June Cromwell was sent to the Tower, from whence he never went forth till 28 July, when he was beheaded with lord Hungerford, who was charged with attempting to compute the day of the King's death. I know nothing for certain of the cause of Cromwell's execution, but probably it was for not supporting the divorce as Winchester and others did. Not long before his death the King had granted him great additional houses and lands and offices, just as he endowed queen Anne before he beheaded her. But some think this was an artifice to make people think he had been guilty of the most heinous treason; and some think it was a like artifice in the King to confer his title and many of his domains while he was yet in prison upon his son Gregory, who was almost a fool, in order that he might the more readily confess his offences at execution. Others, however, say that he was threatened with burning at the stake instead of death by the axe if he did not confess his crimes at execution, and that he then said he was a miserable sinner against God and the King, but that what he said of having offended the King he said carelessly and coldly.
Our sins have doubtless deserved this change. Those on whose support we depended for purity of doctrine have been removed; for we have placed too much confidence in individuals, and now God has taken them all away, so that a man may travel from the East of England to the West and from the North to the South, without being able to discover a single preacher who, out of a pure heart and with faith unfeigned, is seeking the glory of God. He has taken them all away—Queen Anne, who was beheaded, with her brother, Cromwell, Latimer, and the other bishops.
Gives an account of the statutes passed at the time of Cromwell's imprisonment, so far as they concern religion. One was for moderating the penalties on incontinent priests. The first conviction now is to be visited by a fine, the second by the loss of one benefice if the priest have more, the third by forfeiture of goods and imprisonment for life. Another bill was to dissolve the marriage with Anne of Cleves. Will get a copy, that Bullinger may have it translated into Latin. The preamble is false, that the commonalty have had doubts about the marriage, for no man would have dared to utter them; false, also, that the lords and commons petitioned the King to refer the matter to the clergy, for none of them would have dared utter a word about it till they saw that the King's affections were transferred to young Katharine, the kinswoman of the duke of Norfolk, whom he married immediately after. As to the reply of the abp. of Canterbury and the other bishops to the King's letter directing them to judge the case, that they found Anne of Cleves was still a maid, that is a likely thing indeed! Who, judging of the King by his fruits, would believe him to be so chaste? This bill, moreover, gives indemnity to all who had spoken against the King's marriage with Anne—as if there were any such persons. All England cannot produce one. By the same Parliament, also, the King has imposed many burdens on his subjects—a fifth (qu. fifteenth?) of the revenues of his clergy in addition to the yearly tenth, and a tenth of the yearly incomes of the laity from lands and a twentieth from chattels. The North of England, however, where the rebellion took place just after queen Anne's execution, has been excused from these payments. The business, too, has been so artfully managed that the abp. of Canterbury and other lords spiritual (as these carnal persons are called) offered the King of their own accord the payment of this money in the name of the clergy because the King had delivered them from the yoke of the Roman pontiff. As if they had ever been, when subject to the Pope, under such a yoke as they now are, when all their property, and life itself, are at the King's disposal! In like manner the laity made a voluntary grant of this money. Everything is given freely and voluntarily in this country!
In the same Parliament, too, the King published a general pardon for all offences committed before 1 July 1540, except those against the royal person, wilful murders, &c. But it was provided that it should not extend to Cromwell, Barnes, Garrard, Jerome, nor to the two sons of the marquis of Exeter and of lord Montague. Many other of the nobles were excepted from the pardon,—among them the popish bp. of Chichester, a man named Wilson (who had on a former occasion been pardoned by the King and set at liberty after 2 years' imprisonment, for support of the Pope), and some other priests who refused the King's supremacy. All Anabaptists too were excepted, and Sacramentaries, as they are called, who do not admit Transubstantiation; also those who consider the time and mode of each man's death fore-ordained, so that the King cannot change it by the sword. A little before the pardon many persons, especially preachers of the Gospel, were imprisoned throughout England, and in London four or five. They made search also for Dr. Crome, a man of great gravity and wisdom, who, together with Latimer, was the first to sow pure doctrine in our times: and he, hearing from a certain Nicodemean individual that he was denounced, went to the King, and on his knees prayed him to stop these severities. The King forthwith ordered that no further persecution should take place for religion, and that those in prison should be set at liberty on finding security for their appearance when called for. The King probably hoped that in this way the people would be more quiet; but he is accustomed to pardon his subjects thus when they have let him scrape together a large sum of money, or when Parliament has entirely released him from payment of his borrowings.
Soon after the dissolution of Parliament, viz., 30 July last year, were executed six of the men excepted from the pardon. Three were popish priests, Abell, Powell, and Fetherston, who refused to acknowledge the King's new title and authority over the clergy. The other three were preachers of the Gospel, of no mean order, Barnes, Gerrard, and Jerome. They were brought from the Tower on a sledge to Smithfield, tied to one stake and burned where the others were executed. The place had never been used before for the execution of any persons but heretics. They remained in the fire as quiet as if they had felt no pain. Could never learn why these three gospellers were exempted from the general pardon. Thinks it was to gratify the clergy and the ignorant, and that there would not have been more than one, or at most two, holocausts in the year, were it not to get the clergy and others to pay more readily. They were not condemned for their preaching by due course of law; and I know that from the 12 July 1539 (from which day the bill by which the truth was condemned took effect) until they were apprehended, they never spoke expressly against the Statute except in private. They were committed to prison in Easter week, 1540, even after submitting to the King in many things in their sermons at Easter. Thus they could not have been justly condemned. Refers Bullinger to a book printed in German (fn. 5) concerning the protest made by Barnes at the stake. Many others of those excepted from the pardon were executed the week following, for reasons unknown to me. But, to say the truth, people did not inquire much, as it is no new thing to see men hanged, quartered, or beheaded, for one thing or another, sometimes for trifling expressions construed as against the King. The bp. of Chichester, however, and Dr. Wilson, as great a papist as Eckius, were liberated by the King, though excepted from the general pardon. Their treason, I hear, was sending some alms to the papist Abell, when almost eaten up by vermin, as the papists here affirm, in a filthy prison.
Dr. Crome, at this time, as had always been his practice when any storm arose likely to injure the truth, preached with more zeal than ordinary till the approach of Christmas. On that day his enemies brought against him some articles which they alleged to be heretical, and the clergy, meanwhile, set up Dr. Wilson to oppose him, as though it was through his preaching that such a controversy had arisen in the city, and brought him to answer before the King and Council, when they were both forbidden to preach till the case was determined. After Christmas day 1540 (for our people compute the year from Lady day), a day was appointed for the appearance of both parties, and nearly 30 passages were produced from Crome's sermons, about justification, about necessary truth being expressed in Scripture, denouncing masses for the dead as superstition, &c. Crome was allowed some time to answer, and he affirmed the articles orthodox. The King, however, whether from a secret horror or fear of the people, would not deliver him to the flames like Barnes, but sent him a paper headed “the Judgment of the King respecting Dr. Crome,” 18 Jan. 1540, declaring that having heard his answer, he was content to relax the severity of the law, and required him to preach at St. Paul's Churchyard on a certain day in Lent, and recant all the preceding articles. It was added that if he should be accused again the law must take its course. To defeat an evasion by which he attempted to justify himself, he was enjoined in his recantation to read an express declaration that public and private masses were profitable both for the living and the dead, yet that the monasteries had been justly abolished.
When the Sunday came on which he was to recant, he preached a godly discourse, and said he was enjoined to read a written document from the King, and after reading it, committed his hearers to God in a short prayer, and went away; whereas the King had certainly meant him to make the document the basis of his sermon, and to extol the royal wisdom, learning, and mercy, as Barnes and the two others had done. So I am afraid he will not be let off thus. For immediately after he was forbidden by the King to preach any more, as Latimer and Shaxton had been before, who were delivered from death by the general pardon, after being a long time under restraint for their opposition to the statute of 1539. The King has now prohibited them from preaching or coming within two or three German miles of our two universities, the city of London, or their own dioceses! God will not, I hope, allow this tyranny much longer.
|579. Card. Pole to Cochlaeus.|
Thanks for letters from Metz, 12 Jan. As to our common friend, Robert, (fn. 6) of whose mishap (casus) you desire information, since you have his letters, I know you need no further proof of what you ask, nor is it necessary to commend him to you, who are so solicitous for his welfare; but you know the case (causa), and what pertains to the Emperor's honour in it. Advises him to frequent the company of Card. Contarini, the legate, and of the Master of the Sacred Palace.
