26 April. 758. The Privy Council.
P.C.P., vii.
Meeting at Greenwich, 26 April. Present: Norfolk, Privy Seal, Gt. Chamb., Hertford, Durham, Treasurer, Mr. of Horse, Wriothesley, Sadler, Chanc. of Augm. No business recorded.
26 April. 759. Wallop to Henry VIII.
R. O. Details how one Martin Holande, of Pytham, brought a neighbour of his, a Frenchman born but an English denizen, to whom overtures had been made by the captain of Arde to act as a spy and tell what men should come out of England. Wallop sware him anew to the King and engaged him as a spy upon Arde, and sent him thither yesterday to investigate a report that the churchyard of Arde was being cleared for tents. At Arde he joined the procession round the town, and afterwards was asked by the captain if he had heard of musters of 13,000 and 10,000 men in England; but saw nothing of the tents. Another spy sent to Merguison brought word that Mons. du Biez is at Heading inspecting the frontier forts, that 2,000 footmen are ready to come to Arde, and that Mons. du Vandon abides at Abbeville “to know what his neighbours Englishmen will say”; also that the Emperor, French king, and bishop of Rome should have kept a Council upon the borders of Almaign, but the Emperor refuses, and they reckon him their worst enemy. Musters are appointed throughout France for 3 May, instead of harvest time, as heretofore.
On St. George's day Wallop, with the treasurer of the works, captain and bailey here, made proclamation as instructed. That day arrived from Calais the 200 Devonshire men, and next day the 200 Cornish men. All are tall men, and with the tools they brought, cast as much at one time as other labourers do at three, but not so far. Their captains are diligent to drill and set them to work. Awaits Mr. Surveyor's arrival to see what they shall do further. If they had 100 bows and arrows and 100 hagbushes to practice with on feast days, they would soon be more like men of war than labourers. Guisnes, 26 April. Signed.

Meeting at Greenwich, 27 April. Present: Chancellor, Privy Seal, Gt. Chamb., Durham, Treasurer, Comptroller, Wriothesley, Sadler, Chanc. of Augm., Chanc. of Tenths. Business:—Sir Edm. Knevet and Thos. Ciere, for an affray together in the tennis play within the Court, in which they shed blood, were found both in fault and committed to the porter's ward.
27 April. 761. Henry VIII. to Lord William Howard.
R. O.
St. P., viii.
Has received his sundry letters touching his dealings with the French about the Cowbridge and Couswade. The French ambassador here has made answer upon the matter (copy enclosed). Howard must at once repair to the French king, and say that, in order to make certain fortifications at Calais and Guisnes, the earl of Southampton, Lord Privy Seal, and lord Russell, Admiral of England, who are expert in these things, are to be sent over; and as false rumours have lately been spread there, and might be renewed upon their repair thither, it is best that Francis should know the true cause of it. That done, he shall say that, whereas Francis sent his ambassador here a discourse touching the Cowbridge and Couswade, Henry now sends his answer. Instructs him how to declare it—in words which are almost a translation of § 2. Has caused the matter to be put into French, and sends the words of the treaty of king John. The bearer can explain the “plat.” Sends 240l. for advance of diets.
P.S.—From the ambassador of Cleves here and from Mr. Wotton, our ambassador there, we learn that the duke of Cleves is gone to France to marry the Queen of Navarre's daughter. You shall watch closely his doings with the French king.

R. O. 2. Declaration to be made to the French king or his Council, by Mons. William Haward, ambassador of the king of England, touching the bridge called Cowebrige and Cowsewade.
The treaty of king John of France shows clearly that the Cowsewade is within the English limits, as the French king will see if he confers it with the “platefourme” of the territories sent herewith. The French Commissioners say the treaty was never carried out, and has since been modified; but ancient records show that this and much more comes within the limits of Calais, which the king of England would rather not press unless compelled. As to the right of toll, the ferry boat before the Cowbridge was built was at a place called Botehakes, in English territory. The river which they take for the division is in the parish of Balingham, not of Ardre. Other details about the limits.

Since his last of the 19th, men continue to be sent to Calais and Guisnes by companies of 20 or 30, not dressed like men of war, nor mustered in England, so that it is almost impossible to learn their number until all have crossed. Since Easter they have here laden and sent to Calais much victual, as salt meat, cheese, and beer, for their country beyond sea is insufficient to nourish the ordinary garrison there, and French subjects who used to sell victuals at Calais, now sell their provisions at Ardres; which is one of their greatest complaints of the annoyance and injury Ardres can do them, saying that if they lost command of the sea they could not hold Calais for lack of victual. Besides victual, are laden some pieces of artillery and a great number of hackbuts, in order, if necessary, to arm those who pass from here unarmed. Expert miners are being brought from Cornwall, who, as always engaged in mining lead and copper, are more used to the work. It cannot yet be judged how many of these will be levied, but they are commonly put at 500, to make, in all, 3,000 or 4,000 men.
Fifty or sixty vessels are laden with wool for Calais, to be convoyed as usual by two or three ships of war, this time those of the lord Privy Seal, which, as he wrote in his last, are ready to sail. This fleet is on the river ten miles from here awaiting wind, and to finish lading the victuals mentioned above. The ships of war will afterwards proceed to Rochelle for salt, as a personage who is conductor of them says, who adds (and it is otherwise confirmed) that the lord Privy Seal, his master, and the Admiral, Mr. Roussel, will go over sea to view and order the work there; this resolution being taken since it was heard that Mons. de Vendôme had gone to reinforce Ardres, although (he says) the lord Privy Seal will not stay longer than ten or twelve days, and one of his chief charges is to provide horses and waggons to transport the earth of the foundations of the new wall round the borough of Guisnes. The rest of this King's ships are, since Easter, being caulked and repaired, as is done every two years, and is now much needed; but it will be St. John's tide before they are finished, unless more workmen are employed.
A Portuguese, who superintends the fortification of Guisnes, recently reported to this King that it could not be made so strong but that it might be easily forced. He has since confessed that no amonnt of expense could make it more than a place of safety for the neighbourhood in case of surprise. However, those here persist in talking of fortifying it in the best sort. An Italian, expert in fortifications, boasts that he has reported the designs of the fortress of Ardres and of all the French frontier towns.
News comes from Germany every three or four days, and Council is held and report made to the King. Strangers, as craftsmen and merchants, are compelled to leave the country or take letters of naturalisation, called here denization, which are taxed so high that this King will draw 200,000 crs. from it.

Without reasoning of what the English intend to do, it remains to give ample advertisement of what he sees, as he does in his present letters to the King. The preparation of munitions and the general impositions to obtain money, with the assiduity of the Councils, which are held daily these five or six months, imply that, whether for offence or defence, the English are thinking of war. Otherwise it is unlikely that they would do so much and, among other things, restrict strangers so closely that they must either leave the country or take letters of naturalisation, by which they must swear fealty to this King, because the number of them gave cause of distrust; for in this town are 15,000 Flemings and 1,200 French, Italians, and others. Puts aside indiscreet rumours; for, just as in France it was said that 15,000 English were coming to besiege Ardres, it is here said that all the French captains are assembled, and all Picardy already in arms. Three days ago arrived here a courier from the Court [of France], who, as such people generally speak at random, has sown everywhere that it was held certain in France that war would soon be begun with the English. By such means it may happen, when preparations are made, that those who think they have the advantage may take some light pretext to attack the others. Says this because the coming of Mons. de Vendôme to Ardres has so increased the jealousy of the English that they at once decided to send the lords Privy Seal and Admiral, who are at the head (les premiers au maniement) of the affairs of England.
As he can add nothing to what he wrote by his cousin, will only beg him to send back his said cousin, with answer to his petition; trusting that the King will give him the means to serve, or send another in his place who has funds to do so.
P.S.—Has it on good authority that in the North some 80 or 100 gentlemen (fn. 1) and priests were planning a rebellion, and would have already surprised certain bishops who have the government there but that one of them revealed the plot. Thereupon they fled, some to Scotland, and others to mountains and desert places, except a few (quelques ungs) who have been made prisoners and are perhaps innocent. It is another demonstration of the goodwill the people bear to their King, if they had the means to execute it, and it may perhaps cause them to think more of preserving their own than of quarrelling with their neighbours.

No. 66.
Has received his letters dated 12 March answering Henry's of 4 Feb. by Lancaster Herald, touching credence brought by Sir John Campbell and a request for delivery of traitors. Recapitulates the gist of James' letters. Albeit that answer seems strange, being neither maintainable by God's law nor by the treaty of peace, he takes it as framed by the sinister counsel of such as seek their own glory and that of “foraynes and strangers usurping in your realm.” Desires him to weigh the words of the treaty, and he will there see that no distinction is made between kirkmen and others. Secondly, where he alleges that kirkmen are altogether exempt from the temporal power, regrets deeply that James should, to the detriment of his own honour, consent to set up a new kingdom within his realm; for it is a most ancient practise for priests and kirkmen, offenders in temporal causes, as felonies, murders and treasons, to be tried by the temporal power. Thinks that to permit the contrary will breed such boldness as may lead to inconveniences that shall be hardly redubbed. Hears, indeed, that he has lately had experience of like boldness. If James' prelates persuade this exemption as a precept of God's law, how can they, being strangers, intermeddle with the priests and kirkmen of other regions, who, upon their supposition, ought to be remitted to the judgment of their own prelates? It is too unreasonable to maintain a thing by God's law which God's law inhibits, or to meddle with persons who are not of their jurisdiction and whose causes they cannot know, much less judge. Prays him to weigh this and make answer consonant with “truth, reason and your treaty.”

Has received her letters of 28 Feb. with a book of things she ought, by her marriage treaty, to enjoy; but, as he has since heard that she freely consented to the alienation of most of them, it would not do for him to write to the King, his nephew, therein. Remits the book to her by bearer (retaining a copy), and prays her to signify what things she consented to part with and what are kept from her.

Judde, and eight other Staplers called before the Council and required to pay forthwith at Calais their custom and subsidy, 4,284l. 18s.d., for wool shipped in March last to Calais. They promised to send forthwith to see if they had sufficient money at Calais, and if so, pay it to the treasurer of Calais, and if not they would, with the King's licence, send money from hence. Hasbard, of Southampton, who was committed for conveying wools beyond sea without a licence, released and forgiven by the King's special grace, as signified in a letter to John Mille and others who were commissioners in the matter.

(Almost the
whole text.)
At the appointment of the duke of Norfolk, was yesterday with the Privy Council, at Greenwich. Norfolk, as the oldest and first in authority, speaking for the rest, made a long discourse of his master's disposition towards Francis, and the hope that their alliance would be perpetual (as by the similarity of their temperaments they seemed by nature intended to be inseparable), of the mutual benefit derived from the amity, and of the affection he and the other ministers had for it. Coming to particulars, he said it must not be thought strange if they sent men to fortify Guisnes, seeing that, when Francis did the like at Ardres, they showed no discontent. Those sent were not men of war, nor armed; the captains of companies had not taken in all 100 others, who were to command the workmen; the light horse were not 200 above the ordinary number. If the lord Privy Seal went to see how things were, no sinister opinion was to be inferred; for he took but 15 or 20 horse and was to make no great sojourn, but, having formerly been captain of Guisnes, he went to consult where to build the platforms, and to put the garrison and others under such strict rule that whoever took so much as an egg against the will of French subjects should be executed. He went rather to diminish the suspicion which might have arisen; and if Mons. de Vendôme visited the French frontier works it could not be ill taken if a personage of much less quality did the like for this King. They desired to make this communication because it was given out in France that they had resolved on war, which they had never thought of. Thanked them, and after replying as seemed convenient, ended by saying that no faith should be given to such contrivers of lies; for, if there were people in France who spoke thus at random, there were others in England to give them occasion, for the people talked of nothing but war against the French; but as for him, he would write nothing that did not seem likely, just as he had done in that matter of Guisnes, for so they themselves confessed, and Francis could confirm it to their ambassador.
The Duke added that the paper (cayer) of the report of the French commissioners about the Cauchoire had been examined and instructions sent to their ambassador; and they thought that when Francis saw all he would allow their claim, which was less than nothing, or let them know what his Council thought, and show he had the friendship of this King more at heart than that little parcel of ground. It was daily reported that the French threatened to restore the bridge and retake what they thought belonged to them, but they (the English) could not believe it, while the affair was in terms to be amicably settled; and this Marillac confirmed.
Cannot think what has moved this King to be so gracious, and to show tacitly more fear that Francis should leave his amity than will to break it on his side, unless it is this last news of the conspiracy in the North, where eighty or a hundred persons were preparing to stir the people, which is moreover ready enough for such novelties. Although the enterprise was discovered and some of the most guilty taken, the fact remains, that the people would do as much and more if opportunity offered, as by this King going over sea or being troubled elsewhere. Since he wrote last, news has come that a number of Scots have entered 5 or 6 miles from the river which divides the two realms and sacked and burnt a large English village, pretending that it was in revenge for the English having taken two Scotch gentlemen and refused to deliver them. Those here, however, say these are indications of a wish to commence war upon them (que ce sont pretextes qu'on leur veult commencer la guerre). The lords above named, indeed, have said nothing to me about this; but I reckon that they think of it none the less. That may be another motive for their seeking your amity more than ever. About 150 horsemen from the North are brought hither to be sent over sea. Some say they have conducted hither some of the accomplices of the conspiracy mentioned above.

(The whole
What he has been asked to write to the King shows the fine speeches made to him by the Council here. For one word Norfolk said, the lord Privy Seal who came after him added four, and when the assembly broke up all the rest privately told him particulars, showing their master's affection for the King, whose part he sometimes debated against his whole Council. Their attentions to Marillac were twice as great as usual. Cannot think for what reason, unless it be that they are in marvellous fear owing to this conspiracy in the North, of which more and more is discovered, and also to the incursions of the Scots, or else they are trying to persuade us that they do not mean war in order the more easily to take us by surprise. Will nevertheless continue to send word of all they do every eight or ten days, as long as this troubled time lasts.
Seeing these lords so gracious, after speaking of things of state, he put forward cases of some French subjects who are grieved by customers or ministers of justice here, and at once obtained expedition of all. They made great complaint of the arrest of an Englishman (fn. 2) at Dieppe for a debt he did not owe, as showing a wish to make reprisals which are prohibited by the treaties. Promised to write to the King's Council of it; as he now does, to the Chancellor.

R. O. Heard yesterday that the Dolphyn was come into Picardy with a good number of horse and foot, and two nights ago there lay nigh Arde 500 foot, who yesterday retired towards Leekes and Foxhole. Though he thinks the French King would be loth to break with England, has caused certain extra fortifications (described) to be set up. There are here 800 or 900 labourers, very tall men, but very “evil weaponed.” Their captains are very diligent to set them to work and to teach them how to form in case of alarm. Describes precaution against assault. Has sent to ascertain whether the report of the Dolphyn's coming is true. Commendations to my good lady and thanks for gentle entertainment at my late being at your place in London. Guisnes, 30 April. Signed.

April 773. Card. Pole to Card. Contarini.
Poli Epp.,
iii. 22.
Describes how he has twice spoken with the Pope about the matter of money, and has got the warrant expedited. As to his request, when his legation is finished, to stay in his own bishopric until October, describes how he broke it to Cardinal Farnese and the Pope. The former asked, ‘What, will he not report what he has done?’ but in the end seemed satisfied. The latter thought the plan good, and that Contarini would be at hand to join him if he went into Cisalpine Gaul. Would that you might so easily obtain from those Princes the things which for the public good you demand, that it be not so often said of us, ‘The children came to the birth and there was not strength to bear them.’! We cease not to pray that Christ will give happy delivery to his Spouse and success to you in the office of midwife. Rome, 22 April 1541.
Had this written some days, awaiting a messenger, when Contarini's letters of the 16th inst. arrived. His two last letters to Cardinal Farnese have been read in the Consistory, and much approved for the prudence of his answers, “maxime in his, quae Atrebatensi.” His question whether, when the Emperor departs from the Diet, leaving his brother as his vicar, he shall remain until the Diet is dismissed, or accompany the Emperor to Italy, is referred to further debate.
Of Pole's own departure and the causes which move him, Priolus writes fully to Beccadellus. Although he came hither with trouble and even danger, his own people persuade him [to it] on account of the numerous soldiery, and some Englishmen (ex nostris hominibus) who, not without cause, have given suspicion in their coming hither at such a time; and his presence can no longer be of service to Contarini, who has so many powerful friends here.
