April 1545, 21-25

21 April. 553. Wymond Carew.
Treasurer of First Fruits and Tenths. See Grants in April 1545, 36 Hen. viii., No. 54.
21 April. 554. Otwell Johnson to John Johnson.
R. O London, 21 April 1545:—Of your wool merchants none have been here since my departing, save Wymar, who took 42 todd and paid Mr. Smyth for it. He wants the rest, but I have not yet spoken with Mr. Smyth therein. News from Calais you shall know by Ambrose Saunders' letter, sent by Wedde, this bearer, to Mr. Cave.
Hol.,p.1. Add.: at Tykeford.
21 April. 555. Shrewsbury and Others to Henry VIII.
R. O. Having, since receipt of his letters for the description of an army of 30,000 men, considered what shall be requisite, they signify such "wants and lacks " as they find here.
1. Shrewsbury has not only addressed special letters to the noblemen and gentlemen in all the shires of his commission to be ready with their numbers to come forward by 12 May, but has sent to all the sheriffs to make proclamations for all men generally to make ready. Enclose a schedule of the number appointed in every shire.
2. I, the Archbp. of York, knowing the scarcity of grain in Holdernes and other parts where the chief provision is to be had, suppose it hard to get as much more as Mr. Stanhop has already sent to the Borders, "which is but a small quantity." The inhabitants of Newcastell say that, if the restraint of grain in Line, Norf. and Suff., by the King's purveyors, be released, they will provide shortly, if wind and weather serve, 3,000 or 4,000 qr., either for the King, if it please the same to bear the adventure of loss or gain, or for themselves at their own adventure ; and this also is no great furniture for such an army. The Wardens of the marches say that they can scarcely get victual for their own households or they "would not have permitted the country within their marches to be so destitute and disfurnished as it is and hath been all this year." So that it seems "an impossible matter" to furnish the army with victuals in these parts.
3. Find great lack of carriage and chiefly of cart horses to draw ordnance and munitions. Those heretofore bought in like cases, and put to grass in sundry parks, are dead or lame, and none are to be bought in these parts; and therefore a good number must be sent hither from the South.
Finally, here is no store of money. The Treasurer has but 2,000l., and the benevolence of Yorkshire, "being limited by your Majesty for to be employed upon your Highness' affairs here", will not exceed 4,000l.; which, with the garrisons and the works at Tynmowthe and Barwycke, will soon be spent. Also here is great lack of expert gunners;—in Barwycke, where there should be 50, it will be hard to pick out 20 expert men. Darneton, 21 April 1545.
Herewith letters from the Warden of the East Marches and others from William Overende. The Warden's letter shows how the plague begins "to reign somewhat vehemently" at Barwycke. Signed Fraunces Shrewesbury : Robert Ebor.: Cuth. Duresme : Rafe Sadleyr.

R. O. 2. [The schedule above referred to].
"The discripcion of an armye wt in the levetenaunce of the Northe," viz:—Cumberland, 1,800; Westmoreland, 2,000; Northumberland with the garrisons there, 3,000; Durham, 1,500; Yorkshire, 6,000; Lancashire, 5,400; Cheshire, 3,000; Shropshire, 1,400; Staffordshire, 1,400; Derbyshire, 1,000; Nottinghamshire, 1,000. Total, 27,500.

21 April. 556. Thomas Chamberlain to Paget.
R. O. Wrote yesterday by a servant of Mr. Hobby's. Sends by bearer, Francisco the post, a leather bag, sealed, with 48l. 17s. 4d. in groats, which is for part of the 200 cr. Paget left, the rest of which will be sent with the next. Hears that a shipper has come to complain that he cannot recover that taken from him in England among the herring prizes, "and that th'Emperor's ambassadors have willed him to come to complain." So many here complain of ships taken by our folks, specially a ship from the Indias worth 50,000 ducats, that our merchants fear an afterclap; for the complainers talk very spitefully and our merchants are not trusted upon credit as they have been. Tells them that he knows of no danger, but if they mislike the likelihoods they should send home as fast as they can and trust these folks the less. Encloses a letter from Muxica who writes to Paget for answer, and to the writer to borrow money upon his fee that Paget promised to send. The Emperor and the Regent arrived here yesterday towards evening. Andwarpe, 21 April 1545.

In those of the Warden of the Middle Marches are material points touching the exchange of prisoners and a device between lord Eures and him to annoy the enemies "at this next through light of the moon," upon which they ask the King's pleasure. As at Barwycke, Warke and Carlisle there are pieces of ordnance lacking stocks, wheels and frames which if mounted might serve, it may please the King to send down carpenters, wheelwrights and artificers to mount them, for here are none that "can skill thereof." As Thomas Goure is prisoner in Scotland and must now go to his entry, in case an army has to be brought to the Borders, Mr. Shelley or some other expert man should be sent hither to supply his place, for the bestowing and employing of the grain and victuals.

Will, as commanded, wait upon Shrewsbury, in company with my lord of Lynouxe, on Friday night. Sir John Louther not being present this 22nd at 12 o'clock, when Shrewsbury's letters of the 21st arrived, Wharton has sent for him that they may go together on Friday. The night before receipt of Shrewsbury's letters, anempst the stealing of two geldings from Darnton, Wharton had "sett all the marches," upon information thereof by one Munck(?), servant to lord Dacres.

22 April. 564. Chamberlain to Paget.
R. O. While bearer, Francis the post, tarried for his despatch, Chamberlain provided the rest of the 200 cR. Of the sun which Paget left with him; and now sends in a leather bag, sealed, 49l. 17s. 4d. st. in groats, a gain of 3l. 4s. st. The Emperor rode yesterday about this town to view the forwardness of the fortification. Yesterday the Serjeants of the town demanded of some of our merchants, in the street, the impost of the 20th penny which the Emperor takes of every house, and being answered that our merchants "kept no house, but hired a packhouse within other," and required to show their authority to the writer, the sergeants said that they had not to do with him; and so stripped one of the merchants of his cloak in the midst of the street. Afterwards they took out of the chamber of a servant of my lord Admiral his coat and cloak and out of another man's warehouse a cloth for the same duty. I could not then speak with the lords of the town as they were "all day leading the Emperor about the town," but sent this morning to know when I might speak with the Margrave, who thereupon came himself and, being reminded of his proved affection towards the King's subjects and asked to move the other lords of the town that we might be so handled as to have no occasion to remove our trade (as, not long before, he told me that he heard say we would, and I showed him we would not unless driven to it), promised to punish his officers and cause the lords of the town to make redress. He returned again within half an hour and said that the lords of the town were sorry, and would punish their officers; requiring us from time to time to advertise them when molested. Although I have thus gently redressed the thing, I think well to report it; for its suddenness made our merchants fear "an afterclap, being our ships yesterday newly arrived at Berghes."
Continued in his own hand:—The above being written, after dinner divers of the Company reported that the Serjeants were about to break up other packhouses; "whereupon, being past time to have to do with the people of this country, as ye know, at such hours," I sent again to the Margrave to ask whether the lords of the town "did afore noon mock him or me," for the Serjeants said they had nought to do with the Margrave but did their office in the Emperor's name. My clerk has just returned to say that the Margrave, called the sergeants and in his presence commanded them to return to one of the Company a ring which they had taken for a "paund" for the same impost and to release another whom they were carrying to prison; and so commanded them to return all the "paundes" which they had taken on pain of losing their office, and he would discharge our nation against the Emperor. Pray advertise me whether I shall keep our folks at Barghes during this mart, as appointed, or allow them to resort hither "to shop and change and set over their bills, fearing an afterclap as they do by mean of these innovations thus suddenly tempted, the Emperor being here." I would be loath to put our things here, which are for a good round sum, in hazard. Andewarpe, 22 April 1545, at afternoon.
