773. The Privy Council to Seymour and Wotton.
The King has received your letters touching our merchants' discharge of the impost and the Prince of Orenge's victory against the Clevoys. As the Regent has shown herself conformable to the King's desire, we have trevailed with our merchants to give her (not as of duty but for a benevolence) 1,000l. Fl., as the governor and three or four of the best of their Company, who are appointed to deliver the said present, will declare.
The King has taken order for sending over the aid to which he is bound by the treaty, and has appointed Mr. Treasurer to be captain of them, and you, Mr. Seymour, marshal, bringing with you 30 horsemen and 100 footmen. You are to prepare to meet Mr. Treasurer at Calais in three weeks' time, against which the King will write to the Regent revoking you and committing the whole embassade to you, Mr. Wootton.
P.S.—You shall advise the Regent to use well this victory against the duke of Cleves—the Prince not pressing the Duke too much, but rather drawing towards the parts which the French king is about to invade. The King will send his aid shortly, and has appointed Mr. Wallop to repair towards St. Omer's, or elsewhere as Mons. de Roeulx shall advise, with such forces as can be spared until Mr. Treasurer comes over, who prepares with all diligence.

774. Chapuys to the Council.
Even if the Wychardines had had no safeconduct I cannot understand by what right your men could take from them the goods of the Emperor's subjects, especially as the war between you and the French was not open until the expiration of the 20 days, although the Emperor might punish them for trading with enemies. Now, as the Wychardines have the Emperor's passport and also the King's consent, who made no difficulty except about transporting their goods in French ships, it seems strange that the wines and merchandise are detained, the Emperor having need of the wines, which have been bought with the Wychardines' money. That the casks bear English marks proves nothing, as these may have been forged by the purchasers or belong to the vendors. Begs them to order release of the ships and goods. The Wychardines offer to give satisfaction for any found to belong to Frenchmen. Stapeney, 26 June 1543. Signed.

775. Suffolk and Tunstall to [Parr].
Enclose a letter from Sir Robert Ellerker to Sir Robert Bowes concerning the misdemeanour of Roger Graye, bailiff of Woller, "who will neither make man nor money, nor distrain them that be under his rule, for setting forth of men at this time to serve the King under Mr. Bowes." Ellerker can report the misdemeanour; and Graye is to be committed to ward, and also compelled with those under him to bear like charges as their neighbours.
At Newcastle, the taking of lord Maxwell was in traverse between Eglenbye and George Forster; and Eglenbye was adjudged to be the taker, chiefly upon Forster's own words, viz. that Maxwell bade him fetch Thomas Dacre to be his taker, but he did not till Eglenby came; to whom he said : "Fye! Mr. Eglenbye, here is the lord Maxwell; why do ye not take him ? Whereupon Eglenbye came and took him." As Forster now denies saying this, pray write in your next letters "what ye remember his said words to have been." Darnton, 26 June. Signed.

776. Adrien De Croy [Sieur De Roeulx] to Wallop.
I have received your letter and seen what you wrote to Mons. du Biez, with his answer, and think that if we wish to do anything we are waiting too long. The French are at the abbey of Marolles with their King and his two sons and all his nobility. They have burnt some villages and taken some little forts. I have always, like a fool, spared them from burning, but hope soon to recover [ground]. They talk of besieging Avesnes or Le Quesnoy, which if they do I hope that, within three weeks, we shall give them battle; for since we have done with our enemies of Cleves, who have fled and lost their artillery, we shall be reinforced. I came into this country of Heynault to assist the duke of Arscot. Now that he is reinforced, I go to-morrow to the Queen, and from thence will return to my frontier, where I hope to see you soon.

779. Suffolk and Tunstall to [Parr].
His letters sent this morning, with Mr. Sadleyr's letters and two other Scottish letters and his examination of the Scot, (fn. 1) are sent to Court with all speed. Where he marvels that Sir John Wetherington's entry into Scotland is appointed, he mistakes the whole matter. Wetherington has laid pledges for the payment of his ransom, not for his re-entry, and has asked Parr's licence to commune with his taker because, "without our or your licence, he ought not to commune secretly with any Scot." The King's pleasure is that all English prisoners taken before the truce may agree for their ransoms, as has been shown to such as repaired hither and as Parr may show to such of Northumberland as repair to him. Beg him to send them the Scot whom he has examined of Witherington's matter. Darnton, 27 June. Signed.

780. Francis I. to Du Bies.
Received his letters, by the Sieur de Famezelles, together with the letter and articles he received from the Deputy of Calais, which are very strange. He is to answer that Francis, esteeming the King of England to be as much his friend as ever, cannot think that the articles (which are not dated nor signed) are his; but, if he will avow them and send them duly signed, Francis will, upon safe conduct, send a personage to answer each so reasonably that he will have occasion to be content.

781. William Watson to Henry VIII.
We came, 11 June last, safely to Hamburght and sent all our cloths by land to Lewbyck, where I saw them shipped and ready to depart for Dansyk on Midsummer Day. One of the Council of Lewbyck, who was my factor here for 12 years, sent me a letter from Borne Holme, dated 20th inst., warning me that the King of Sewthen had lying there a long bark of war with letters of "martt" to rob men of Rostock and Wyssmer, being under the duke of Mekelbarth, and Englishmen,—the latter because Englishmen have taken a ship of the King of Sewethen's secretary bound for Sellond or Hollond. On seeing this letter, went to the Council of Lewbyck, who licensed me to arrest the ships in which our cloths were laden, being in all, your Grace's and our own, 86 fardells that went over with me in the Mary Kateryn. One of the ships named Jorg Dargosse, of Grypsewold in the land of Pommer, had already sailed, with 20 fardells of cloth and 2 English merchants, "whereof there is v. fardells of Skotts cloths for your Grace's aventure." We took the rest out of the ships and laid it in Lewbyck.
Begs him to write to the King of Sewthen to know how things stand. Passage thither may always be had through Lewbyck. The King of Sewthen "hath the over hand" with his commons. Two days ago, when at Lewbyck, saw Hamburght ships arrive there through Denmark with salt from Burwage (Brouage). The King of Denmark kept them 14 days in the Sownd, and on the 20th inst. licensed them to pass to Dansyk, Rey and Revell but not return. There lie in Denmark 60 ships of Breme, Hamburght, Lewbyck, &c., with one small English crayer bound for London. The King will not suffer them to pass and has taken above 500 of their best mariners and 100 pieces of ordnance, and has prepared 10 great ships of war and 10 small, which on Midsummer Even departed from Copman Havyn to Elzynnor, 5 miles off. The King of Sewthen will send them 12 ships of war and the duke of Spruce, "as my brother writeth me," 4. They say that the King of Denmark has gone over to speak with the King of Sewthen, and at his return will sail for Hollond or Sellond to do some hurt; but the common voice at Lewbyck and here is that these ships will go to Skottland, with all the "lanche knyghtt[es]" of Denmark and Sewethen, reckoned at 10,000, to make the King's brother King of Skottland, and that 4 Skotts ships from Dansyk are arrested in Denmark.
Sends this by his servant, Thos. Flud. "Here is the common saying that the Emperor's Grace should be dead, and much money laid upon it." Begs instructions whether to ship the King's cables and ropes which are making in Dansyk to Lewbeck, and thence bring them hither in lighters "and so from hence to London." Hamburght, 27 June 1543.

782. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote last on the 22nd. The Emperor and Bishop met at Bussey, a place pertaining to Sor Palavisin between Cremona and Parma, on the 20th; and parted on the 24th towards Almayne and Bononye, respectively. What they treated is not divulged, but men think they remain friends. The Emperor leaves three commissaries, among them Granveilles, to treat with three of the Bishop's. Doria counselled the castellan of Nisa to feign that he would give the castle to the French, and so drew French galleys thither, of which Doria took 4 and chased 10 others. Doria has 60 galleys, the Spanish galleys remaining for the presidy of Italy. On the 8th the Turks' navy of 200 sail was at Corfu, where Barbarossa received presents of the Venetian officers. On the 10th he was seen at Puglia sailing towards Sicile, Captain Polin with him. In Austria seems weak provision against the Turk, but 7,000 Almains and 4,000 Italians have entered Vienna. Boheme promises Ferdinando 3,000 horse and 4,000 foot besides money. The Turk was to be at Belgrado on the 15th. He has released Turcovalente, a principal Hungarian, whom he had in prison, and has written liberal offers to the Hungarians, to be under his dominion, which it is feared they will accept, like the Queen and Friar George.

783. Captain Polino to the Governor Of Terracina.
The French king, being informed that the Grand Turk would this year send his army by sea against the Emperor, commanded Polino, who was at Constantinople, to go upon it and intercede that the lands of the King's confederates might be spared, especially those of His Holiness, Thereupon obtained from the Grand Signor strict command to Signor Barbarossa to spare lands of His Holiness. Has not been able to notify this sooner. Assures him that the people may remain at rest, and promises payment if they have meat or other provisions to sell. From the galley (Di Galera), 27 June 1543.

786. Wallop to the Council.
Received theirs of the 26th on the 27th, and will put himself in order as directed; and so has written to the Great Master. Of the 1,500 footmen last sent, would leave 300 or 400 and take as many of the old crews instead. The lord Warden's band and Mr. Cobham's, with Mr. Mewtiez' 200, are tall men, and the rest will "pass honestly," all except 300 or 400 who are not yet meet to be led into a strange country. Wishes his appointed number of 20 horsemen increased to 30, and to have his brother Captain Harleston with him, leaving the rest under his petty captain to keep watch and "skult." At Arde, when they be 100 men of arms they keep not above 80 horses for that purpose. Desires also 24 household servants to wait on him, and will appoint others to furnish the Castle. The 500 labourers and 200 pioneers are ready. John up Rychardes has taught 100 to shoot in halfhakes and is himself "a very warlike person." Wishes Mr. Vaughan and Mr. Wingffeld to have charge of the other 200. Suggests either Sir Edw. Ryngeley, Sir Wm. Purton or Mr. Marshal of Calais to take charge of the Castle in his absence.
Ryngeley and Purton have done it before; and "as for Mr. Marshall, and if he have a 100 horsemen, Northen men, he shall be the more meet to lie here, always considered he do keep the said castle himself for better surety, otherwise he may fortune come short home." Reminds them to provide waggons in Flanders, for carriage of tents and stuff, and of the bows, arrows, strings, and corn powder to be sent over. A "book of articles" for the ordering of the men is necessary. As there is little beer in Flanders, and that "very evil," it may be sent from Calais and Guisnes as long as we lie about St. Omer's.
The French king is yet in Henowe with "the Dolphin captain of vanguard, himself of the battle, and Mons. Dorleance of the rearguard." Vandosme's camp lies near, and he returns to Picardy because of the Englishmen's coming over. De Beez yesterday escorted certain horsemen of Rocheporte's band to within two miles of Arde; where are now 100 men of arms, and all horses sent away except 80 to keep the "skult." Arde is in great fear, old men, women and children sent away and the country people fled.
Begs that "some discreet person in fortification, as Mr. Candyshe of Dover," may be sent hither, to report the state of the works to the King. Guisnes, 28 June. Signed.

787. Wallop to the Council.
This afternoon I received a letter from Mons. de Beez, "which is a very French letter," as you will see. I have, "after my French learning," made answer as well concerning the beer as the rest, adding news of the late overthrow of the Clevoyez, which is not yet penetrated into their ears. The French king has retired to Morall, a village on the border of Hennowe, and comes to St. Quyntynes; either awaiting the coming of the duke of Cleves or fearing a descent of Englishmen. They reckon the Emperor will not come before winter. Guisnes, 28 June. Signed.

788. Oudart Du Bies to Wallop.
Found the beer which Wallop formerly sent him very good, and desires to purchase more. Had this morning letters from his King, with news from Italy that, on the 15th inst., the Emperor was still at Pavia awaiting answer from the Pope about their interview, which the Pope declined because the Emperor had made alliance with the King of England. The Emperor sent the Pope a copy of the said alliance, by which the Pope and the Holy See are excepted, assuring him that the King of England was to be trusted and that he (the Emperor) made the alliance in order to restore that King to the obedience of the Roman Church. The Pope then agreed to the interview, within his own territory, but it cannot be before the end of this month, so that the Emperor will not be in the Low Countries so soon as the Burgundians bruit; and the King will be very vexed, for he came out with such a puissant army to fight the Emperor, and now the Emperor cannot be here before September, when winter will be come. But the King's army is not idle, for he daily takes towns and castles, fortifying those that are guardable and destroying the rest. Boullougne, 28 June 1543. Signed.

789. Queen Mary of Hungary to Chapuys.
The Sieur de Chantonnay, gentleman of the Emperor's mouth, this bearer, is despatched to the King of England with an instruction which he will show Chapuys. Has given him a particular instruction to require the King to hasten the assistance which he is bound to give by the treaty of stricter alliance; and has also pressed the King's ambassadors here, seeing that the king of France with a great power is already well entered into Henault. Sends against him part of the force she had about Hainsbergue, which has raised the siege, revictualled the town and won the enemy's artillery. These with the 3,000 Spaniards just arrived, the men she has in Henault and Arthois, and the English assistance, if it comes in time, should make the enemies retire. As the King of France has 30,000 foot, 8,000 horse and 30 pieces of great artillery, his necessity and perplexity is not to be too much counted upon; but he could not resist the united forces of the King of England, the Emperor and the writer (she having 7,000 horse and 30,000 foot). Also regard must be had, as the instruction says, to Scotland, for even if England is at a point with the Scots the King of France will not cease to embroil things there. As to assisting the King if he should invade France, will be guided by the capitulation made thereupon. As to the letter of the French ambassador with the Pope, taken in Italy, thinks it well to show it to the King.
In reply to his letters of the 23rd and 24th inst. : He has done well to persuade the English to make the insinuation (l'insinuacion) of war. Desires him to send copies of the writing which he delivered and of the instrument of the King's oath to the treaty of stricter alliance. The enterprise of Monstrel, of which he writes on the 23rd, could not be done as long as the French king is in this country unless he should lay siege to some strong town which could hold him three or four months. Our first duty is the defence of the country, to which the King of England is bound, and whose men of war we desire to employ in Haynault.
The captain of Guisnez has written to the Sieur de Biez not to hurt the Emperor's subjects near his master's ground; and thereupon the French have published at Ardre (as the captain of Gravelingues writes) that no one shall hurt the Emperor's subjects on that side. Sees in this a means of collusion and temporising, which Chapuys must be ready to remonstrate upon when it is seen how the captain (fn. 3) whom the King sends hither shall act. Fears that, if he made difficulty before he had left his own house, he will make more on this side and will do little or nothing without each time consulting the King. Chapuys must therefore use dexterity to obtain from the King that he (the captain) should do as the writer shall command him; otherwise it is to be feared he will do little service.
As to the safe-conducts, "vous avez faicte, etc." Bruxelles, 28 June 1543.

Modern transcript of the original cipher draft of the preceding at Vienna; from which it appears that the sentence left unfinished above thanks Chapuys for having obtained safe-conduct for the three ships of the Guicciardini, and instructs him to obtain similar release of 14 other ships which (the factors at Antwerp now complain) are detained in England, laden with goods belonging to men of the Low Countries or of Portugal, seeing that they were seized before the King declared war against France.

The Queen of Hungary's instruction to Chantonney, to declare to the King, in addition to his instructions from the Emperor, that the Emperor charged him to pray the King to succour the Low Countries if the king of France should invade them before the Emperor's coming, and that the Queen of Hungary gave him, in passing, letters to the King and charge to declare that the king of France, with his two sons and all his power is in Haynault, having taken some little forts and spoiled the country, intending to join the Clevois who were before Heynsberge. This she expects is prevented by the defeat of the Clevois, but the King will continue his invasion of Haynault if not resisted, and she has therefore sent 3,000 horse and 10,000 foot who were about Heynsberge towards Haynault; who, with the men in Haynault and Arthois and the 3,000 Spaniards last arrived from Biscay, and Henry's aid, should stop the enemies. Requiring him to send the aid as soon as possible, in order to avoid the waste which the king of France makes, and also, in making him retire, to have occasion thereupon to execute some enterprise in his country. Bruxelles, 28 June 1543.
ii. Account (headed as to be shown if the King of England should ask about the defeat of the Clevois) of the revictualling of Heynsberge, on the 21st inst., by the Prince of Orenges, and of the subsequent flight of the enemies who abandoned their artillery and baggage, threw away their harness, and lost about 1,500 men.

790. Mont To Henry VIII.
The rumour of the Emperor's coming lately increased, and is now confirmed, the Emperor having proclaimed a Diet to be at Spires 30 Nov. next, by mandate marked "datum in Genua, nostra et Imperii et camera et urbe, secunda die Junii." 120 great pieces of ordnance (tormenta bellica majora) which he had forged at Augzburg were brought to Spires eight days ago, and much powder and ball comes daily. As war has broken out he probably defers sending it down the Rhine to Brabant. The captains whom Dominus de Lyra retained hereabouts some months ago are wearied with waiting and many of their men dispersed; so, it is thought, the Emperor will not be averse to a truce with Juliers. Frederic Palatine, the bp. of Cologne and duke of Juliers are said now to be together. The four electors of the Rhine, in order to end this war, have come to an agreement. The German princes would not have Gueldres in the Emperor's hands.
Ferdinand, at Nurnberg, begs for the promised soldiery to protect Hungary (and there is great rumour of the Turk's coming) but no one lends. The Protestants are holding a Diet of learned men. All their princes and states are to meet at Smalcaldia on the 24th inst., except the king of Denmark, who sends his commissary. The Protestants have given the Emperor some waggon loads of powder and permitted him to purchase much more in their cities. Spires, 28 June 1543.

791. Sadler to the Council.
Since writing last, could have no access to the Governor, both on account of his sickness, and his delay in coming hither, which, he himself sent word, should have been four days ago. Yesternight, late, he arrived; and to-day Sadler has conferred with him, urging him to the apprehension of the Cardinal, Lenoux and their adherents. Found him well minded, but seeming to make the enterprise more difficile than he was wont, both because of their strength and their hope to have shortly out of France 50,000 cr., 10,000 pikes, 2,000 halberts, &c. Told him that if he mistrusted such aid from France he should be doing before it arrived, and might be sure of the King's aid. He said he trusted to have God and the King on his part, for whose sakes he had (and should have) much cumber here, but he doubted not that the King could do more for him than could the French king for his adversaries; and, as soon as peace was concluded and pledges laid, he would follow the King's counsel against the Cardinal and Lenoux, and in all other things, but, before that, to make any stir might hinder his obtaining the pledges and the perfection of the peace. Touching the prisoners, the Governor said he had warned all to be ready to enter forthwith and they would be here to-morrow or next day. On their arrival the Governor, Anguishe, Casselles and Sadler will resolve which shall be respited until Lammas, according to direction lately received from Suffolk. The Governor said that, on receipt of last letters from his ambassadors, he sent to the Borders and proclaimed the prorogation of the peace to 1 August. The French navy lies now afore Aberdeen. The Governor thinks they lie there for our Island (Iceland) fleet; and hears that they expect a great navy from Denmark to join them, for the keeping of the seas against the King and Emperor. He does not mistrust their landing in Scotland and fears only French gold, saying that, if the French king send men, a few men would soon be despatched and a number would starve. Edinburgh, 29 June.

Rejoices at my lord Warden's coming, but wishes he came with more company. At the Great Master's coming this way, he will send for Wallop about the enterprise of Mounstrell, and thinks to have of us 3,000 footmen 600 horse and certain ordnance. Asks what answer to make.

794. Charles V. to Chapuys.
Supposes that Chantonay will have reported occurrents here and the Queen's advice upon his charge. Has since been with the Pope and negociated as will be seen by the copy of his letters to his sister, to be communicated to the king of England. The King may be told that the thing which the French lay most stress upon with the Pope, to the Emperor's detriment, is the last treaty. His Holiness has by admonitions and persuasions sought to know whether the treaty could be retracted and whether, notwithstanding it, the Emperor would suffer him to assist France; but the Emperor has absolutely refused and said that he would assist England to the end against France. Holds it certain, therefore, that the Holy Father will absolutely refuse the pretension of the king of France. Pistoye, 29 June 1543.

796. Sadler to the Council.
This morning the Governor has news from Aberdeen that the 15 ("sixteen" in Sadler St. Papers) sail of Frenchmen have landed a few men at Aberdeen and thereabouts and conveyed writings to the Queen Dowager, the Cardinal and Lennox. Albeit the captains say that they remain to encounter a fleet of Flemings, it is thought that they are come "for some other great purpose," having 2,000 men of war aboard who keep very close "within board." It is thought that they bring, as Sadler wrote, 50,000 cr., 10,000 pikes, 2,000 halberts ("hagbuts" in Sadler St. Papers) and certain pieces of artillery. The Governor goes forthwith to Linlithgow to order the sure keeping of the young Queen, whom Sadler advises him to remove to Edinburgh castle. He assures Sadler that he will be sure of her, and that with the King's assistance, he esteems not much the power of his adversaries, for all the aid France can give them. Hitherto, could not persuade him and Angus that this French navy came for such a purpose as begins to appear; but now they begin to smell it. The Governor has written to his ambassadors, touching that matter, the enclosed letter, which he begs Sadler to forward. Edinburgh, 30 June. Signed.

In pursuance of what he wrote of the receipt of the articles, he sent them to the King, who cannot think they come from his friend, the King of England, especially as they are neither dated nor signed. If the King of England will avow the articles, and send them duly signed, Francis will, upon safe-conduct, send a personage to reply to each of them to Henry's satisfaction. Sends Francis's letter, to be forwarded. Begs answer to this and to know the day of expiration of the twenty days. Boullougne, 30 June 1543. Signed.

798. Seymour and Wotton to Henry VIII.
On the 28th received the Council's letter of the 26th; and yesterday had access to the Regent, declaring Henry's diligence in sending over part of his men already and giving order for sending the rest, and also what Mr. Wallop should do with those already come over. She thanked Henry, and said they could not come too soon to be welcome, and that Mons. de Reux would be with her that day.
This day she sent for them and said, in presence of De Reux, that Wallop should not yet remove from Guisnes, but spread a bruit that the host should go straight into Hainault, to join the Duke and Prince and give battle to the Frenchmen; lest by Henry's men lying at St. Omer's they should suspect some enterprise about Monstreull and reinforce the garrisons. De Reux said he would depart hence to-morrow, to prepare his men secretly and communicate with Wallop. The Regent required them to signify this to Henry, and also to Wallop, although they said that they knew not whether Wallop had not already departed or durst stay at Guisnes without command.
The Prince, having revictualled Heynesborgh is going towards Hainault. The French have forsaken Maulbeuge, burning only the town gates. They burn no more the country as they did; and go on fortifying Landressy. The King is still at Marolles. Some think they are cooled, or else begin "to hearken towards" Henry's men that come over.

799. Scotland and the Marches.
"A remembrance made by Sir Thomas Wharton, deputy warden of the West Marches of England," in the month of June 35 Henry VIII., of his opinion for the better preservation of peace between England and Scotland and better service of the King upon all three Marches and at the town and castle of Carlisle, viz. :—
All the "mere grounds" of England and Scotland to be certainly known. All laws of the Marches to be put in writing and proclaimed four times a year in each of the Marches. The East, Middle and West Marches of either realm to be certainly bounded, and convenient meeting places for the officers appointed. The officers of every March of either realm to meet monthly or oftener, and exchange indentures of their conclusions. Twelve of the wisest Marchers, six of each realm, to be appointed to gather in articles all questions not settled in the treaty of peace, to be established as a law by the kings of both realms.
ii. Wharton's opinion "what hath been the occasion of evil," viz. :—
1. The making of no redress for fire and blood. 2. Delay of redress for other heinous offences. 3. The "ressett" of rebels, against the peace.
iii. Wharton's opinion for service of the King upon all his marches and for better furniture and manning of them, "which is a needful point," viz. :—
1. That all chief lands of great lordships containing any convenient number of men be held by the Crown. 2. Fertile ground to be diked and fortified with towers. 3. A warden or deputy warden to rule both the East and Middle Marches and the offices of Tynedale and Reddesdale and all other head offices in Northumberland, using the King's castles and houses at his pleasure and spending at least one month yearly at Harbotle or Chypechaice; and he to have the leasing of all fertile ground not now occupied. 4. All gentlemen marchers, at every change of head officer, to be sworn to the oath of the pensioners; with this addition, that they shall reveal any March treason they may know of, and any delivery of goods to Scots and any persons known to be practisers with the Scots. 5. The warden to have in fee certain of the most active and wise men of the Marches, and to consult the gentlemen marchers frequently. 6. Active and wise men to be appointed to all offices.
iv. Wharton's opinion for the West Marches, viz. :—
1. The warden or deputy-warden to have the captainship of the town and castle of Carlisle. 2. The three baronies called Burghe, Gillesland and Graystok to be the King's, "by exchange or otherwise," and the warden to have the leading of the men of the bishop and college of Carlisle and the lands belonging to any late monasteries. The head officer to lie either in Naward or Carlisle castle at his pleasure; and Naward should keep Gillesland in obedience and be a scourge to offenders in the Waistland, Tyndall and Ledesdall. The officer of Burghe to lie at Rocliff or Drumbeughe and the officer of Bewcastle to keep house there. The stewardship of Penreth and Quennes Hames to be at the head officer's command. The lands which the King now has along the Marches, as the lordship of Hollme Coltrane, barony of Wigton, forest of Westward, honor of Kokkermouthe, to continue as Crown lands. The leases which the Grames have to be fully observed, especially as regards making of dykes, as made by the earl of Southampton, dec., then chancellor of the Duchy.
Wharton does not give this opinion for his own profit, he being ready to serve the King anywhere; and he knows the fee of 500 mks. to be insufficient for the office of deputy-warden of the West Marches and captain of Carlisle. Redesdall, Tynedall, Bewcastle daill, Waistland, and Gillesland should be surveyed every three years to see that there are not too many women and impotent and idle people. Commissioners should, every three years, inquire into and make certificate of all executions by officers in those March countries that are bound to serve the King, and therefore discharged of subsidies and taxes. The offices of the captain and the mayor of Carlisle should be defined. The woods in the Batable Land should be destroyed, so that it may be forayed by horsemen, and then it may all be kept at the King's commandment "without any division to be made thereof." The underwoods at the head of Tyndall should likewise be felled.
A great part of these opinions were Wharton's in July 34 Hen. VIII; and now, in June 35 Hen. VIII, things have been so advanced by the King's "most noble and costly acts and deeds" that many of them may be void. Signed.

800. Northumberland. (fn. 4)
"A declaration of the misorder which is in Northumberland, and chiefly upon th' East and Middle Marches."
First, because there is no punishment of faults, the misdoers "have gotten the over hand of the good men (if there be any)," so that he who can practices to be at kindness with the thieves, both Scots and English, and therefore gentlemen's goods are saved and poor men's spoiled. This is because "the strength of men upon the Borders is so much decayed that I think verily the gentlemen and others are fain, of necessity, for the saving of their goods to show kindness." This decay is due to two causes :— 1. Lack of good officers, to see "the good orders of the Borders" kept. (In margin in another hand : "Md., that letters be written already to know what th' orders and laws of the Borders.") 2. The taking of gressoms, which has so impoverished the people that they are unable to maintain horse and harness.—Where the last earl of Northumberland's grandfather made 1,000 spears of his tenants of Northumberland the last earl could not make 100, but was fain to have 40 out of the Bishopric; and every lord's tenants are likewise diminished, so that "there is not now, besides the garrison," 300 horsemen, and where the whole number of harnessed men was 4,000 or 5,000 it is not now 1,000.
For remedy it is thought good :—1. That a ruler be appointed, who will without fear see justice done. 2. That no gressoms be taken of such as will find horse and harness, as follows, viz., a tenant paying 20s. rent and upwards, "a good gelding, a harness and a spear"; one paying between 10s. and 20s., a horse and harness, bow and harrows; one under 10s. taking "the benefit not to pay gressoms," a harness, bow and arrows; and every man of lands to keep men horsed and harnessed "according to his lands"; provided always that no man have a farm but he that shall dwell thereon.
To enforce the above, an Act should be made that no landowner in Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmoreland, and the Bishopric take "any gressoms or fynes," and if tenants refuse to keep horse and harness as above, the owners to put them forth; all owners to take quarterly musters of their tenants, to see that they are furnished, and books of these musters, signed by the takers, to be delivered to the Warden. Every owner to have a book of the order taken "for all manner of farmers and tenants" and see it observed, and the Warden to appoint every man of land in the said shires to a reasonable number, taking a book of the names, &c., and seeing them mustered four times a year.
And albeit Westmoreland, Cumberland, the Bishopric and the West Borders "be already in reasonable good cace," this order would make them stronger to help the Middle March and to defend themselves. The countries shall thus wax stronger and wealthier, and the King shall be at less charge in time of war. The pensions do more hurt than good; for those who have no pensions say "Let the pensioners go" and the pensioners say "that they be not bound to go but at the days of trewe and at the Wardens' calling," so that, between them, "the country is suffered to be daily spoiled and robbed." All Scottish men, women and children to be put into Scotland and no Englishman to receive any more "upon pain to be taken as a maintainer of the King's enemies." The Warden to send the King yearly a book of all the musters.

801. Scotland.
"Informatio pro illustri principe domino Jacobo Arraniæ Comite, Regni Scotiæ Gubernatore."
To remind His Holiness that, from of old, the Kings of Scotland have had grant of the Apostolic See to wait eight months for letters of commendation of the Princes before providing to consistorial benefices. As that time seemed too brief in time of war, the late King James V. had it extended to twelve months. Now it is rumored that Robert Crichton, since the King's death, has, at Rome, procured the resignation of the bishopric of Dunkeld, without our letters of commendation, to whom the kingly offices pertain; and therefore we desire his Holiness to silence this procuration of the said Robert.
Since the monasteries commended to the King's children lie on the confines of England where the enemies make their strongest raids, we would have his Holiness permit us to dispose of them until the children's lawful age of 22 years, choosing new administrators, if necessary, and converting the fruits beyond those necessary for the commendataries to public uses and the defence of the realm, especially at this time when the enemy threatens the overthrow of religion and perpetual slavery. Our letters to his Holiness contain the rest.
