|Meeting at Pipewell, 26 July. Present: Gt. Chamb., Gt. Admiral, Wriothesley. Business: — (blank) of — (blank), being accused of not having defaced the bp. of Rome's name out of his primer, the primer was examined; and, as it was found undefaced only in one or two places and in all the others clean blotted, and in the man himself appeared no malice, he was discharged.|
|26 July.||1036. Wallop and Others to the Lord Chancellor.|
Yesterday we received letters from my lords of the Council, of the 21st, enclosing one to Mr. Treasurer of Calais, which was immediately conveyed to him by your servant, the bearer. We shall at once examine into the number of workmen and the estimate of their wages till Michaelmas, and certify the King. We would have done so with your servant who brought the money mentioned in your letter, but he could not tarry. No news but that all princes that now fortify on these borders do so quietly and diligently. The princely works here at Guisnes rise up very fast and are better than any yet begun by the French king or Emperor. Rogers, the King's mason, who was sent yesterday to mark the works at Arde and Mountory, esteems them nothing in comparison. That of Mountory was only begun 15 days ago, “being in distance but one mile from Arde,” and at Arde the rampire is completed and guardable and the only fortifying there at present is outward making of three bulwarks. Mons. de Rewz, great master of Flanders, lies three leagues from Mountory and, as deviser of the fortifications, is there twice or thrice every week. Wallop sends commendations to my lord of Hereford (sic) and the rest of the Council. Guysnes, 26 July. Signed: John Wallop: Anth. Rous: Rychard Lee.

|26 July.||1042. Francis I. to Marillac.|
Lately, at the chase, the English ambassador came to tell him that the King, his brother, making his journey to the North, prayed him to innovate nothing touching the Cauchoire, but continue the amity between them. Marillac shall assure the King that Francis will innovate nothing, but will attend always to preserve and increase the amity.
Had news, 10 or 12 days ago, that the Sieur Cesar Fregouze, knight of Francis's order, whom he was sending as ambassador to Venice, and Anthoine Raincon, whom he had despatched to the Levant, to dissuade the Turk from making a descent upon Christendom and to compass a long truce until Christendom might be united, have been taken upon the Po, three miles from Pavia, by some Spaniards of the garrison there, and led to Milan and thence to the castle of Cremona, where they are detained. Deferred informing his good brother until this was verified. The Sieur de Maugiron, lieutenant in Dauphiné, hearing of the said capture, arrested the abp. of Valentia in Spain, coadjutor of Liege, uncle of the Emperor, who seems a good enough pledge for the said Caesar and Raincon. Marillac must inform the King of England of this and ask his advice; and likewise tell him Francis has letters from his ambassadors at Ratisbon that the states of the Empire have consented to give the Emperor 10,000 foot and 2,000 horse to go against the Turk in Hungary, deducting the proportion which the Emperor and his brother should furnish for the lands they hold of the Empire and likewise for those held by the king of Denmark and duke of Prussia, so that, it is thought at Ratisbon, the said aid will not exceed 6,000 foot and 500 horse. That was granted on condition that a truce should be made for six months, and abstinence of the judgments of the Imperial Chamber. As to the siege of Buda, there are frequent posts thence, but nothing is said of it at Ratisbon, although long ago there was a bruit that the Turk's succours were near. The Emperor was to leave Ratisbon before the 22nd inst. Will write more news when it comes, for Marillac to give to the King of England, praying him similarly to inform Francis of his. He shall continue to talk of the matter Francis wrote about, but so dexterously that it may not be known to proceed from him. Countersigned: Bochetel.

Hudson were discharged with a “good lesson.” Letter written to the mayor, customers, &c., of Newcastle to restore to John Davysoun, merchant, of Scotland, his ship called the John of Careil, with all the contents except the money; which ship was restrained as forfeit because money was found in her ready to be conveyed contrary to the statutes.
|28 July.||1044. Deputy and Council of Ireland to Henry VIII.|
St. P., iii.
On the 23rd inst., Parliament was prorogued to 7 Nor. next, when it is thought very requisite that it should assemble at Limerick to confirm the obedience of Desmond and others thereabouts. Enclose a schedule of the Acts passed. Others, not passed because the commons and nobility petitioned to have certain clauses altered, shall be put in due form and sent under the Great Seal of Ireland, to be returned again under the Great Seal of England.
Stand as yet in no stay with ONeyle and ODonell. ODonell has appointed to commune with the Deputy and Council in the beginning of August, but, it is said, Oneyle dissuades him. Have little hope of Oneyle, and until at some certainty, dare not advise the King to diminish the army, albeit the revenues will not suffice to pay it. Desire instructions as to payment of the late Lord Leonard's debts.
Where the King by letter authorised some of them to sell Friary houses and make gifts to Irishmen who submit; they desire a commission under the Great Seal, and also instructions whether to direct their warrants to the Chancellor or send them to the King for signature; for the Chancellor is very timorous to pass any of the King's inheritance without warrant signed by his Highness.

We hear that David Lessellis, a Scot, is detained in your custody because he formerly governed a ship in which a Scot, one of your citizens, having left his own wife, sailed from thence with another man's wife, also a Scotchwoman. We think that David was not aware of this guilt, and even if he had been, could not prevent it, as the master and owner of the ship were then present. We beg you to decide his case as you would have us decide like cases touching your citizens. Edinburgh, 28 July 1541.

|29 July||1047. The Council in London to the Council with the King.|
St. P., i.
Yesterday received letters from the bp. of Sarum, with other writings (copies enclosed), showing that two Spaniards, who lately landed at Dartmouth, were apprehended at Sarum and there examined by the Bishop and Mr. Bulkeley, and sent hither with their depositions. Have examined the men and find the one named Petrus Latronensis, presbyter de Sancto Romano (who appears to be a religious person though he says he has only professed the order of priesthood), a stout champion for the bishop of Rome and depraver of the King's supremacy and laws. He avers that he was sent hither by God, because, when he took ship in Spain he prayed God to direct his course and was driven by weather to land in England. The archbishop of Canterbury and bishops of London and Westminster reasoned with him, and found him utterly unlearned, grounding his arguments upon old errors and upon the canon law, which he has only studied four years. As nothing could persuade him from his folly, the Archbishop warned him that, if he still continued to maintain the bp. of Rome's authority and deprave as he did the King's supremacy he must suffer death; told him what kind of death it was. He answered that the laws were evil and he would rather suffer ten deaths than forsake the truth. The other Spaniard, John Abbott, is also a priest and seems very simple. He came with the other only for company as an old familiar, and as to the Primacy, answered wisely that he was unlearned and would not meddle therewith. Have committed them severally to the custody of the bishops of London and Westminster and devised interrogatories for them in order to fish out whether they were procured by any other person to come hither. All things here and elsewhere in the realm are in good order. Westm., 29 July. Signed by Cranmer, Audeley, Hertford, the bps. of London and Westminster, lord Wyndesore, Sadleyr, B[aker] and Sowthwell.
P.S. in Sadler's hand.—Edm. Marten and Wm. Burnell, who went to Calais with the King's money, are returned with letters (sent herewith) to the lord Chancellor from Mr. Wallop, Mr. [Rous] and Mr. Lee.

|Meeting at Loddington, 29 July. Present, Privy Seal, Gt. Chamb., Gt. Admiral, Durham, Treasurer, Comptroller, Vice-Chamb., Wriothesley. No business recorded.|
|29 July.||1049. Marillac to Francis I.|
Seeing this King resolved to continue his journey North, as soon as he began to go away from [London] (ceste ville), Marillac followed him, at which the King seemed pleased, and the more so as he is the only ambassador in this progress. The Imperials, doubting that he would negociate to their prejudice and jealous of his welcome, according to their custom, invented new means to put the English in suspicion and render distasteful anything Marillac might put forward. Seeing that it was said here that the affairs of the Emperor, their master, did not succeed in Germany as he expected, and that in Hungary the King of the Romans had lost both men and reputation; the Imperials gave out that Francis and the Emperor were in terms to meet again for a final conclusion between them, in order that the English might think such an interview had been brewed without their knowledge. Told some of this Court who asked about it that he thought that news entirely false, for, besides obvious reasons against it, Francis would not have omitted to inform the King his brother, as one to whom he wished to communicate not only his acts but his thoughts; but a few days would show the truth. They have since found that these suggestions were fictitious; and the Imperials, finding they could not maintain them, have maliciously set forth that the duke of Cleves, on account of his alliance with Francis and his contumacy to the Emperor, in refusing to appear at the assemblies of Ratisbon, had been prevented from returning home by some of his chief towns, especially of Gueldres, objecting to him that it became him to keep Gueldres by decision of the Imperial Chamber, not by alliance with Francis. This bruit was so common here for some days that nothing else was talked of, yet, two days ago, Marillac received letters from Flanders, written by subjects of the Emperor, saying, simply, that the Duke had returned home well and safe, without mentioning that his subjects had attempted anything against him, which news he communicated to the English to efface their former impression. Finally, here is divulged the taking of the Sieur Raincon, on the Po, by the marquis of Guasto's men, by which was discovered all the intelligence between Francis and the Grand Seigneur. To that Marillac said, simply, that, if Raincon was taken it was an act against public faith and the common immunity of ambassadors, but, as for the intelligence, he (Marillac) thought Raincon was not going beyond Venice and, even if he had charge to go further, he would carry no instruction which could touch the honor of his master or prejudice Christendom. Although they say the thing is of strange invention and base execution, thinks they are very glad of it, inferring that Francis will resent such an outrage on his servant and will soon be at war with the Emperor, and they themselves live secure and sought after by both sides.
As the duke of Norfolk will not be in this company until the 10th of next month, and then there will be other matter to write of, writes this to show the alarms the Imperials give him. Has left a man at London to inform him of all the news of the merchants and to forward letters, in order to be able to answer the lies which the Imperials daily contrive.
