29 March. 259. Sir Ralph Eure to Hertford.
Hatfield MS.
231, No. 22.
[Cal. of Cecil
Pt. i., 131.]
This Friday night (fn. n1), received a letter from his father with the muster book of the inhabitants and garrisons of the East March, and a letter from a Scotsman, directed to Hertford, sent herewith. Has received returns of musters for all the Middle March, save Newcastle Ward, Morpeth Ward, and Tynmowthe Shire, the Commissioners of which have not yet returned their books, although Thursday last was their furthest day. Encloses a billet of their names, and has written to them sharply to bring the books on Sunday next to Newcastle, where he intends then to be. As Hertford commanded, has spoken with the Scotsmen of whom he has bond and pledges, to know what men they can make to serve the King in France on horseback. They answered that in Scotland they are able and willing to do good service but are loth to go into France. They have desired respite to Thursday next, to speak with their friends. Will at his coming show what men may be made out of Tyndale and Ridsdale to serve in France. Chipchace, 29 March. Signed.
P.S.—There will be a want of that power which you reckoned to have out of the East and Middle Marches for "the journey that your Lordship hath appointed us to, because there is so many northern men in wages, for if the whole garrison ware white coats to (sic) country men would serve notwithstanding."

29 March. 260. Queen Mary of Hungary to Chapuys.
R. O. The merchants of Antwerp having had their herrings arrested and sold in England complain that (besides having them sold at a poor price) difficulty is made about delivering the money unless they first give surety for the amount, lest it should afterwards be found that the herrings belong to others. It seems strange that such surety should be required for merchandise leaving these countries upon safe-conduct; and it is notorious that the herrings do not belong to any Frenchmen or other enemies. Requires him to get the proceeds of the sale delivered forthwith, without any trouble for the surety, and with a recompense for loss and interest, as she has divers times written. Bruxelles, 29 March 1543 devant Pasques. Signed.
P.S.—Begs him to solicit resolution in the matter of the ships of war to be equipped, of which she wrote.

R. O.
St. P., iii., 493.
The King lately wrote for 3,000 kerne whereof 1,000 were to be shipped forthwith to the Pile of Fowdraye for service against Scotland, and the rest put ready upon short warning to attend his royal person into France; but, upon further consideration, his Majesty will not have his realm of Ireland disfurnished of so many, and now requires only 1,000 kerne, of whom 500 shall be transported as above to Fowdraye, or as near as possible between that and Chester, and the other 500 ready upon warning. All are to be picked men, as many as possible of them gunners, levied where they may best be spared and under the leading of the captains to whom the King wrote. Westm., 30 March 1544.

30 March. 262. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
R. O.
vii., 55.]
She has already heard from this King's ambassador resident with her and from the parties, the disorder which happened at La Vere,—of the English ship in that port which the Scots seized and carried off, whereat the King and Council have been marvellously indignant, especially as they knew that the ship had already arrived in Scotland, and was sold and the merchandise dispersed. For remedy the Council, three days ago, sent to tell Chapuys several things by a man of his; and the King, yesterday, sent one of the Council to him with remonstrances and a request to write earnestly to her to order reparation, saying, among other things, that five ships were shortly to leave Scotland for Zealand (or at least, if they would pass into France to keep aloof from this coast, they would approach so near Zealand that it would be possible to arrest them) to arrest which would be the true remedy for the above. The King would pray her to effect the said arrest; and so to use the Scots there, and coming thither, that henceforth they might have neither means, opportunity nor boldness to commit so insolent a disorder. Begs her for this as required by the great amity between the Emperor and the King. London, 30 March 1544.

30 March. 263. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
R. O.
vii., 56.]
Having the opportunity of this messenger, would not omit to write that this King, four days ago, received letters from the Count of Lynus (who, as Chapuys before advertised her, received the money and munitions sent by the King of France into Scotland) declaring a wish to take the King's part, upon reasonable conditions, and requiring a commissioner to be sent to the frontier to treat and conclude the affair. Thereupon the King has despatched a sufficient personage and those here hope that all will succeed according to the King's wish. With the help of the said Count and his other friends, if they persevere in their goodwill, the King will order Scotland as he pleases. The patriarch of Aquilea (although he had the King's safe-conduct to pass this way) preferred to trust himself to the fortune of the sea, and alleged some excuses to the King, to whom he sent a great discourse, in writing, to exhort him not to enter war against France but rather to undertake the arbitrament of peace between the Emperor and the King of France, not doubting (as he said) but that, as the King was rich and the others on every hand needy, he (the King) would easily persuade them to do all he wished (especially with the Pope's assistance on the other side, whom, to please the King, he styled only his master); and immediately upon his arrival in France, he would put the matter in train and thereupon, with the King's pleasure and safe-conduct, come to Calais to commune of it.
For these eight days the King has been indisposed with a mal de jambe, which for two days caused a little fever; from which, thank God! he is delivered, but remains still a little indisposed; and for this cause the Duke of Alburquerque has not yet been to do him reverence. The Duke has been here eight days; and will not leave so soon as he desires, because as yet he has been unable to obtain proper ships for his passage, and he will sojourn in this town until these are provided, especially to avoid the discomfort and trouble which the Duke of Najera has had, waiting for his ships at Plymouth, where he still remains, troubled, both by not finding necessary provision and because the people there are a little rough (brusque) and ill-conditioned; while the Duke of Alburquerque here has been attentively visited on the King's behalf. London, 30 March 1544.

Received theirs of the 27th, and accordingly has written to the earls of Cumberland and Westmoreland. Yesterday arrived in Tynmouth haven lord William with the Mynyon, Charles Howard with the Julyan of Dartmouth, and the pinnace which Candishe made; and this morning came in Jennens with the Peter of Spayne. But the Swepestake, in entering the haven yesternight, ran aground, through the master, Wheler, of Lastof (fn. n2), missing the channel in a sudden fog and mist. Lord Cobham and all on board came very hardly to land. Hertford and Sadler have been this day at Tynmouth taking order to save her, and expect to save the ordnance and tackling, and the ship also if there be no great wind between this and the spring which begins on Wednesday. Lord William and lord Cobham told Hertford that, with the lord Admiral and others, in all 10 sail, they left Harwich on Tuesday last and kept together until Wednesday at noon when they lost one another in the mist. Those here, before entering the haven, searched for the lord Admiral during Thursday, Friday and Saturday but could not hear of him. With him were lord Clynton in the Swallowe, Sir Nic. Poyntz in the Gret Gallye, Sir Rice Maunsell in a hulk and Wyndham in a ship of the West country. The men appointed to this army arrive continually, and will all be here to-morrow night save some whom Hertford has stayed for two or three days longer; so that, unless the ships arrive shortly, the King will be put to great charge for wages here, and the men cannot abide because the country here is destitute of victuals. Newcastle, Sunday night, 30 March. Signed.

[Cal. of Cecil

Has set forward the proportion he appointed, viz., 2 demi culverins, slenderly mounted (there being here no elm or other timber for stocks, but he trusts that "with the smiths craft" they shall serve), 2 sakers, 7 fawcons, 3 fawconets, 8 bassys mounted upon four carriages with two chambers apiece, and 3 last of powder. Bows and arrows shall shortly be coffered when it is known how many he wishes. Here are 200 demi-hakes, 500 morespykes, and also bills; but no planks and hurdles to serve the battery pieces. "For schipping of ony thyng that his here ther is no chipes in this haven for the purpos." Victuals are at such price that his men pay 3d. for every meal. Berwick, this Sunday. Signed.
P.S.—Here are 16 fair carts and 4 close carts covered with hair. Bows, arrows, strings and powder must be covered. Sufficient hair is said to be at Newcastle. Here are not pioneers's tools to furnish 200.

After the letters to His Holiness were given to Marcus Grymanus, the Patriarch, it was announced that the legacy of this realm was granted to the Cardinal of St. Andrew's on the kalends of February. Is much affected by this, as the man is very dear to him and ready to spend his life for the Holy See and this state. Thinks that an ornament has been added to the state and that he himself is honoured because of the relationship of blood that is between them. Sent his servant Adam More with the Patriarch both for public and private matters, and begs credence for him and a favourable hearing. Ex Sterlingo, penultimo Martii 1544.

Begs credence for what they will say on the part of Arran, who signs this. Striveling, 31 March 1543, avant Pasques.
31 March. 269. Christian III. to Henry VIII.
R. O. By your letters received of this messenger we understood clearly that your Serenity remembers the things which we wrote to you some years ago, and that our speeches with the Earl of Botwell and with your own subjects have come to your ears. Hence we take it kindly that, from very plain evidence, you conjecture our present aims, and so are confirmed against the rumors of our aiding the Scots. Assures Henry that no one has yet dealt with him in the name of the Scots, and that he has not received money from any other quarter for furnishing his fleet and soldiers. If such a thing is proposed to him, his reply will show that he is not unmindful of his dignity or duty. "Ex regia nostra Copenhagen," 31 March 1543. Signed: vester bonus frater et amicus, Christiernus, Rex.

St. P., i., 761.
3. "Considerations which way is thought by the Council to be most convenient for the King's Majesty to set forward with his royal army this summer to invade the realm," viz.:—
To go by the frontiers of Flanders to the place where the duke of Suffolk returned out of France over the Som, 2 miles on this side Neele in Vermandoyse, by which way the army shall have victuals and horsemeat, "as we know by the report of such as be now come out of Flander," and may carry those provided at Calais unspent to the entry into France beyond the Som, which will suffice the whole army for 12 or 14 days, by which time they will be "very near unto Pary[s]," passing by many good towns not fortified and through one of the most plentiful countries of France. Charges may be spared by causing the Almains, both horse and foot, not to enter into wages until the army comes near the Som.
If your (fn. n3) Majesty will have such of your army as pass the seas before your Royal person attempt some displeasure to the enemy, it is thought "that attemptante be made to wyn Arde," which may be essayed without lacking victuals or losing time.
In going this way the army may make large journeys, being in no danger of the enemies until it comes to the Som.
On the fly leaf:—"Item, where we perceive your Majesty's pleasure is to know our opinion by what days your vanguard, rearguard and battle shall be at the sea to pass over; Sir, we think the vanguard to be there the first day of Juny and the rearward to be there the vj day and the battle the xij day."
In Norfolk's hand, pp. 3. Endd.: A devise for a way for passage into France.
R. O. 4. "A consultation concerning the provision of victuals to furnish the King's Majesty's army that shall pass over into France."
To be at Calais with the vanguard 6 June, with the rearguard 10 June, with the battle 15 June. The first night out of Calais the vanguard to lodge at the Cawsey, and the next night about Guisnes or Lisques: and there await the rearguard and the Almain horse and foot. From thence they shall go as the King shall appoint. If it be to pass the Somme between Crotay and Abbevile, the journey will cost six or seven days; and if to do some exploit before the King joins them, the horsemen should return to escort the King. The purveyors must provide victuals for all the army from Calais to the Somme, and for ten days more. If they pass the Somme beyond Braye, that upper way will cost nine or ten days from Lisques or Guisnes, and no provision need be made for the passage thither because victuals will be furnished out of the Emperor's dominions. If they pass the Somme by Crotay and Abbeville, no forage can be had, for no corn is sown this year in Bullenoys. Men who know both ways should be spoken withal, to tell the state of forage and victuals, the "progress" of the ways and the distances from place to place, so that the King may determine which way is best.

R. O. 12. An estimate showing the advantage of taking 1,200 carriages from England rather than hiring them in Flanders.
Seven horses at 33s. 4d. for each carriage, with 33s. 4d. for harness, collars and other necessaries, make for 600 carriages 8,000l. (sic). Ten oxen at 23s. for each carriage, and yokes, chains, etc., 30s., make for 600 carriages 7,800l. And 1,200 wagons at 4l. cost 4,800l. Total 20,600l.
Whereas 1,200 wagons hired in Flanders at 3s. 4d. the day, counting 30 days in a month, cost in five months 30,000l.
So that the cost is 9,400l. less "and yet all the oxen, horses and carriages remain the King's Majesty's."
Wages of 2,400 carters to attend upon the said carriages at 6d. a day, are in five months 9,000l., so that ultimately 400l. less is spent and all remain to the King's use.

* * * * *
And, because among those who can hurt France is the King of England, who, being leagued with the Emperor, sends this year new forces (gente) against France, it appears to me that three things Should be done. First, the King [of France] to order an opposing army, as he did last year; and, as the French are very resolute against the English, there seems little to fear. Secondly, to corrupt some great man about the King of England, who may gradually dissuade him from this aggrandising of the Emperor, and open some practise for the marriage of the King of Scotland's daughter with his son, so that he may go more slowly against France. These two means to be procured by the King of France. Thirdly, in the war between Scotland and England, to aid the Scots and thus prevent the English crossing the sea so strongly against France. This remedy should not only be provided by the King but also assisted by the Pope. For why should not the Pope aid the Catholics against the Heretics? And, if he has often sent men and money against the Infidels, why should he not send help against the Heretics, who by the Church are held as worse than Infidels?

The preamble states that, for the "great surety" of himself, his succession and the common wealth, the King intends to pass in person into France against his ancient enemy the French king, and also to "noye, invade or defend the realm of Scotland, and the malice of the inhabitants of the same, our natural enemies, to the which we have just and lawful title and right, who always do imagine and practise in our absence from time to time to noye and destroy us, our realm and posterity in the same"; and for the accomplishment of this enterprise it is expedient to prepare a mass of money by sale of the King's possessions, because he will not at present molest his loving subjects for money unless thereto coarted.

VIII., before them, viz.:—That such water as heretofore has been sewed at the gutt called Appuldore Gutt shall be sewed and have his course through the place called the Arrowehed to the water called Chanell; and that it shall be lawful to the expenditor of the wateringe in Romney Marsh called the Fyve Waterynges, and the sworn men of the same, to make "such guttes, pynne bridges and other things" in such places as seem convenient for sewing of the water within the limits of the Five Waterynges. And as the water which sewed at Appuldore Gutt shall now have his course through the ground of Sir Wm. Sydney called Woodroof, at a place called the Arrowehed, the land owners within the Fyve Waterynges of Romney Marsh shall make "such guttes, pynnokes, walles, bankes, dammes and other provisions and fenseis that the water shall be kept in his direct course" through the said lands of Sir Wm. Sydney, so that the land may not be injured by insufficient sewing. And the said land owners shall not be bound to make or repair any pynnokes or guttes except "the gutt at the Arrowehed, the pynnoke at the Hoke Chapell Wall and the great gutt sewing into the sea."
The said landowners shall make a gutt in the wall called Chapell Hoke Wall, between the Arrowehed and the sea, lest the sea gutt or sea wall should chance to breakand drown the "inne landes" or grounds of the said Sir William; and shall maintain so many gutts and sluices "at the side of the Chanell and at the sea side there" as may always convey away the waters both within Sir William's land and their own, and shall recompense Sir William and his tenants within eight weeks for any damage they may do in cleansing the water courses; and if for the purpose of such cleansing they suffer any salt water to come in, and it shall happen to overflow the land, they shall make recompense. If the landowners let in any water out of Romney Marsh into the lands of the said Sir William, they must first cleanse away the freshwater in the water course there, so that the said lands may not be "surrownded, drowned or overflowed" by the overfilling of the gutt. The said landowners shall, within eight weeks after making the "gutt. sewer or sluice" in the lands of the said Sir William, pay for the ground taken "according to their ancient custom and statutes of Romney Marsh," to be repaid if hereafter any other way is taken for sewing the same water. Within one year the said landowners shall make and maintain a substantial bridge "as well to carry with horse, cart or wain as to drive over the said sewer, sluice or water course" from the one parcel of Sir William's land called the Longe Damme to another piece called the Duckhope. Sir William or his tenants may demand recompense for any injury caused by the negligence of the said land owners of the bailiff of Romney Marsh, and the bailiff shall pay for it within forty days and shall have authority to levy scots within the Fyve Waterynges for the amount. In default, Sir Wm. or his tenants may distrain upon lands within the said Fyve Waterynges, under conditions specified. &c. Hampton Court, 8 March, 35 Hen. VIII. Del. Westm., 15 March.—P.S.
