26 July 1275. The Privy Council.
A. P. C., 217
Meeting at Portsmouth, 26 July. Present: Chancellor, Suffolk, Essex, Admiral, Winchester, St. John, Browne, Paget. Business:—Letter sent to my lord Marquis and Mr. Vicechamberlain to despatch home the Hampshire and Sussex men. Letter to Mr. Bellingeham to signify, with the Captain's advice, the landing places within the Isle and numbers requisite for their defence, also what numbers are now there and of what countries, and to cause beefs and muttons to be brought into the market. Wm. Rygewaye, surveyor of works at Sandone, in Wight, had letters to Mr. Barnes and Mr. Parlet, of the Augmentations, for the full 20 fodder of lead, Mr. Chancellor of Augmentations having written for 12 fodder. Letters written to Deputy of Calais, Lord Graye, etc., "to send 500 men to renforce Boloyne decayed by deth." Parson Levet ordered by letter to send hither such pieces of artillery as he has already made. Upon Lord Poynenges' desire for 5,000 more men to empeach the Frenchmen's fortifications, letters were addressed to the Council at London for 1,000 out of London and to the Duke of Norfolk for 4,000 out of his Commission, viz:, Beds 500, Hunts 300, Cambs. 400, Herts 300, Norfolk 1,500, Ntht. 500, Leic. 500.

Having advertisement from lord Poynenges and the Council at Bulloyn, as appears by copy of a letter from thence of the 24th inst., that the Frenchmen have built such a fortress on the other side of the water as, if not taken from them, will stop the haven, the King will send thither in all haste 5,000 footmen. As his Majesty now furnishes this town with 1,000 men, the Isle of Wight with 2,000 and certain ships with 3,000 and already for Bulloyn, Calays and the sea there are 2,000 taken out, no more may be taken from this commission, and my lord Privy Seal's commission is too far hence, so that his Highness is forced to levy 4,000 within your commission. He prays your Lordship, as ever you will do him pleasure, to use diligence to levy the numbers contained in the enclosed schedule "and to cause the same to resort to the ports totted upon their heads to be transported under the leading of such captains as you shall assign unto the same," and also to see that there are vessels for their shipping. For repayment of coats and conduct money you will send to the Council at London. The King has this much to heart. Cause good men to be sent and well weaponed. I, the secretary, write the news.

R. O. Begs them with all possible speed to write what number of ships they have already set forth and will have ready within two, three, four, five or six days, according to the letters lately sent to them by the Council. Wishes also to know the burthen of the said ships and the number of mariners to be made within that port and the creeks adjoining; also what strangers' ships are there and wherewith they are laden.

Yesternight, a hoy out of England brought news "that the French king's galleys were arrived in Sutherey besides Arondell." If it be true, I trust that "both those that came with them shall be well beaten and their galleys remain ours." With Jasper Dowche for his jennet I must work leisurely, for he is little in town. "Jernyn hath bought you a very fair harness and mails, bits and other things." Let me hear news from your lordship. Andwerp, 26 July.

R. O.
Since his last of the 13th it is divulged that the Bishop was to send 12,000 footmen and 800 horse into Almaine against the Protestants; but since Andolo's arrival in Rome, from the Emperor, these rumors of arms are ceased, and it is said that this expedition of Germany shall be deferred to next summer. The Emperor requires money of the Bishop to spend "at his free liberty," to which the Bishop will not consent, and the Emperor dare not finally tempt fortune against the Protestants, which would only lead to the Christians being oppressed by the Turk. Nothing is said of the Council at Trent; and the revocation of the legates is looked for. Moluco, the French orator, continues sick in Ragusa. Some think the truce with the Turks will not take effect, or will be with strait conditions and for a short space; and many add that without giving Milan to the Frenchmen "there shalbe nothing resolved with the Turk." The Belgarbey of Grecia, chief of the Turk's Empire, is in Hungary with a great band. Polonia and Transylvania suspect both Tartars and Turks. The Viceroy of Naples has put Don Garcia, his son, in prison, by the Emperor's command. It is conjectured to be for murder. The Frenchmen have raised a bruit that Englishmen have "sustained grete ruines by the Scotes." This the writer has affirmed to be false; and he hopes that French brags will be well "domid" by Henry, whose preparations are a marvel to all men, and whose enemies are exhausted. Venice, 26 July 1545.
P.S.—Writings from Constantinople of 23 June signify that, on 6 June, Barbarossa's son departed towards Alger with 10 galleys, to be joined by 20 "galleottes and fustes of corsaris." The Imperial galleys await them at the Goletta. A galleott escaped from the said Barbarossa with 80 Christians has arrived in Messina. Venetians think the truce with the Turk not likely to take effect. The Duke of Venice lies at the point of death.

Business:—Letters addressed to the mayor and aldermen of London to send to Boulogne 1,000 of the best of the 1,500 men sent hither. Hugh Concel had commission for 5 horses to convey him with a gentleman stranger and his servants to London. Robt. Williamson servant to John Portemarye, had warrant to Tuke for 30l. in prest for 63 days' wages, serving in the Wight, from 14 July, Portemarye himself at 4s., his standard bearer at 12d., fife and drum at 8d. each and 6 of his men at 6d. Letter to the Council at London for release of the stay of ships in Themes, great ships above 300 burthen except. Like letter to Mr. Husey, signifying further that, as he refused to accomplish the Council's order to restore to Roger de Prat goods lately taken by Gregory Carye, he should appear before the Council by 4 Aug. Letter to Mr. Bellingeham to dismiss out of the Isle all Hampshire and Sussex men. Letter to Lord Poyninges that 5,000 footmen should be sent to Bullen and the horsemen of the Pale should suffice. Letter to my lord of Norfolk that those sent to Bullen should land at Calais, and by the way beware of enemies. Letter to the Lord Admiral, viceadmiral, captains and soldiers upon the sea "to permit a cer[tain] . . . ." (entry unfinished). Ric. Bullock reporting seditious words by John George of Bramley, Hants, had letters to Wm. Moore to examine him and nail his ears to the pillory if he be found author of the words. Order (described) taken in the matter of John de Quintanaduenas, Spaniard, against the mayor of Plymouth and Wm. Hawkyns, who are both committed to prison.
27 July 1282. Russell to Paget.
R. O. Understands by his letters dated Portesmouthe 25th inst. the King's pleasure that the ships should be sent from hence with all speed, and is now expediting their despatch. Their greatest need is of mariners. Here are divers hulks, laden as in the billett enclosed in the letters to the Council, and other ships which cannot be furnished forth for lack of mariners.

R. O. On Sunday, 26th inst., at 7 p.m., received his letters enquiring what ships they had already set forth and would set forth within six days, and the number of mariners in their port and the creeks adjoining. Have been unable to set forth any ships, for lack of mariners, who are all in the King's service or taken by Mr. Wyndham to Portesmouth. Here is building a ship of 140 tons, which will be finished in six weeks. There is also a balinger of 50 tons, which will be soon made ready, but only one mariner, Robert Wyll, who is appointed to be master of the said ship when finished. There is no stranger in the port at present. The mariners now in the King's service number 27, whose names are enclosed. Saltayshe, 27 July.

27 July. 1284. Hertford to Henry VIII.
R. O. To relieve his necessity the King gave him the college of Sanct Marye Oterye; and, as that can be little relief to him at present, because of the stipends which must be paid out of it, although it might hereafter benefit his son, as he lately signified, he became a suitor for the college of Leicestre in lieu of it. Perceives now by Mr. Secretary that the King means not to deface any of his great colleges, and therefore begs that he may have some small college with Oterye, such as the college of Glasney in Cornwall, worth 1801. a year. Together, Otterye and Glasseney amount to 414l. 2s. 6d. yearly, which will leave him, after the stipends are paid, about 100 mks., not reckoning therein the 3,000 mks. which he promised the King, nor the debts, rewards and other expenses of the dissolution of the colleges.

As lead is restrained here, begs to know whether that restraint is released (as he wrote before at the contemplation of the merchants here); for he is informed that "that restraint is at liberty" in all other places.

Hertford has received sundry letters from the Borders which he sends to be declared to the King. The Scots intend to do somewhat upon the frontiers and hope much from the landing of the Frenchmen on this coast. The time is at hand which will reveal their intents, and things are in such order that their malice will be well encountered. Hertford has sent Lord Stourton to Berwike and prepared 5,000 men to be put under him, into the town if required. As Robert Maxwell, notwithstanding Hertford's safe-conduct, will not come to lie in pledge for his father (although by his own letters he promised it), Lord Maxwell who is now here at Newcastell shall tomorrow take his journey to the Tower at London in the conduct of Wm. Brakenburye, who brought the King's treasure. Wrote lately, upon Mr. Hobbie's being at Carlisle, that they would send a platt of the bulwarks to be made there; and Hertford thereupon sent John Brend "(who is a wise and expert fellow)" for that purpose. His opinion appears by his letters herewith. Newcastell, 27 July 1545. Signed.

The Duke of Lorraine and Bar is dead and the administration in dispute between the Duchess and M. de Metz, who claims to be administrator with her. Urged this King to induce M. de Metz to withdraw; and he promised to do his best to make an agreement, of which Cardinal Lorraine has already drawn up a draft. The King will not take Charolois as compensation for Hesdin, for which he wants a place of equal strength and useful against the English; which is impossible. A Spanish ship captured by the English at sea escaped in a fog and entered Havre de Grace, the English having taken out only her artillery and the owners. The Scots who took 400 ducats out of a Spanish ship have gone back to Scotland. The ambassador of Florence has left because the King gave precedence to the ambassador of Ferrara. Dangerous illness of the King through rupture of a vein. The Pope will only furnish aid against England on condition that no peace negociation is made without his cooperation; which the King refuses. The King will send a gentleman of the short robe as his ambassador to Rome, and hopes that the Pope will send him a similar envoy. French report that the recess of the Diet is for the purpose of a conference between delegates of the Emperor and Protestants who shall report to the next Diet in December. The French would have liked the Council to proceed to hostilities against the Protestants. Ransoms of Count William and the Prince of Roche sur Yonne soon to be settled. Cardinal Carpi. Title deeds of Burgundy. The King says that if his troops have committed robberies in Artois he will punish them, for he forbade them even to pass over the Emperor's territories. The King tries to obtain our Princess for the Duke of Orleans, promising to increase the Duke's portion and be satisfied with Milan. Secretary Gerard and M. de Moluc have arrived at Ragusa. The Emperor sent Dandolo to Rome to salute the Duchess; but the French suspect that he was sent to explain the recess of the Diet. Increase of Lutheran sacramentarians in Guienne and Normandy, which will make it necessary for the King to promote the Council. Before the fleet was ready 40 or 50 English ships appeared off Havre de Grace and fired on the place, causing great alarm. The King, who was only three leagues away, had his baggage prepared at midnight and, but for one of his captains, would have fled in great disorder. On the 15th inst. a great carrack, the principal vessel in the fleet, carrying the baggage of the Admiral and nobles, caught fire as she was leaving port; and although she returned to port she was totally burnt and some 200 persons drowned. On the 17th the fleet sailed from Havre, 200 sail, including 23 galleys; but three or four days later the Admiral's flagship J he Mistress returned for repair, having run aground. They burnt the Isle of Wight; and the Chevalier D'Aux was there killed. Captain L'Orges reports that the Scots wil1 take the field with 30,000 or 40,000 men on the 28th inst., but he can do nothing without money. The French assert that the King of England seeks peace and offers to surrender Boulogne; and that he will send representatives to Boulogne to meet French representatives from Ardres; also that he wishes a marriage between his daughter the Princess and the Duke of Orleans or between his son the Prince and Madame Margaret. The writer has intervened by means of an Italian and is assured that neither marriage will take place. For peace this King insists on the surrender of Boulogne but would leave the rest to the Emperor's discretion. The French expect the Prince of Piedmont to pass homeward through France, and hope to get his consent to marry Madame Margaret. The number of Spaniards in this King's service against England is only 500, and the King's maitre d'hotel, Mendoza, is unwilling to take the charge of them. Caudebec, 27 July 1545.

The Council here make much ado because Don Bernardino de Mendoza has captured some of their pilots and sailors required for their war against England in reprisal for what Paulin did when, passing Spain with the French galleys, he gave refuge to some of the Emperor's convicts. Has answered that this is no reprisal, but a continuance of what they began; and that they should first surrender the convicts. Caudebec, 27 July.

Mr. Bellingeham ordered by letter to send to Lymyngton some meet personage to take charge of the 500 Wiltshire men appointed to remain there and dismiss the rest. Wm. Webbe, of Exeter, and John Whithorne, having l,080l. delivered to Webbe by Henry Alveros, "Portugal," supposed to be a Jew, "for that he had conveyed himself out of the realm suddenly, which augmented the suspicion," they were commanded to bring the money to the King's use. Eight Portingalles, landed in Sussex by Frenchmen, "by pretence of a letter of marte (sic) as they declare," and sent up by Sir Wm. Shelley, set at liberty.

"Right reverend father in God, right t., etc.," the Emperor's ambassador has declared that, upon our late letters to his master for the aid, he is commissioned to commune with us or our Council for "thecclarcissement" of the treaty, and has asked whether it was meant that his master should declare against France. You shall obtain access to the Emperor and say that the treaty is plain, and is divided in two parts one of which extends only to the invasion of France the other "to the French king and all others." By the first part, we said that the Emperor could not make peace with France without our consent and the Emperor answered that we had consented, alleging the untrue report of his servant the bp. of Arras. "To that he shall answer" that Arras or other servants are no meet personages to make proof against a solemn act of their master,—an example dangerous to the faith of all princes,—and, albeit we should consent as Arras says, the Emperor has not liberty to make peace without us. That we did not consent appears by our letters then sent to the Emperor referring the further declaration of our answer to our ambassador Mr. Wootton, to whom we also wrote; but, presupposing that we had indeed consented and were satisfied, and thereby that part of the treaty was taken away, there remains the other part which binds us against the French king and all others that shall invade. In case the Emperor charge us with breach of the treaty in not keeping our journey to Paris, you shall say that if we would have taken occasion of breach of covenants to enter a bargain with France we had good cause, for the Emperor "neither kept upon the sea the army he was bound to keep, nor yet entered into France by the day appointed," but spent a month besieging places to prepare a way for his victuals; whereas we kept our day of entry into France, although greatly hindered by want of the victuals and carriages, with which the Emperor was bound to furnish us, "and as wisdom and the reason of war requireth, and, taking example at th'Emperor, thought it not expedient to leave any place behind us that might empeach our conduct of victuals," and both the Emperor's ambassadors and the Regent commended our besieging of Boulloyn. The said Bishop shall say, therefore, that we cannot admit any other "esclarcissement" than the words of the treaty purport, which are, that without our consent the Emperor could not make peace with France, and, even if we were at peace and satisfied, the invader, though it were his own brother, the king of Romans, ought to be common enemy, notwithstanding any other treaty. Mary! if the Emperor shall friendly desire us not to press him to declare himself, and shall send us the aid due by the treaty, offering (as he may do without offence of his treaty with France) passage through his countries to horsemen, footmen and munitions coming to us, and mutual traffic of victuals on our frontiers, we will forbear this declaration for a time.
Forasmuch as Granvelle has chief place about the Emperor, the said Bishop shall, with our commendations, tell him that, howsoever his son has dealt in this, we cannot but have a good opinion of his zeal to the continuance of the amity between his master and us, and desire him to assist the said Bishop in all that he has to do. Finally the said Bishop shall by all means devise to know the state of the Emperor and his Court, and of proceedings with the French king, the Scots, the Bishop of Rome, Turk, Venetians and others, and occurrents.

VIII., No. 106
Received the Emperor's letters of the 16th about the English ambassador's request for a declaration of war against France and the aid stipulated in case of invasion. Accordingly, obtained audience and, entering upon the principal point, said that, in case the Emperor contributed the aid, he could not be expected to declare war or forbid commerce. The King replied that that was not the treaty, and it was incompatible to aid one side in war and remain friendly with the other. Answering that in view of the King's consent to the Emperor's peace with France, there was no incompatibility, the writer mentioned the non-compliance and was told that the treaty made by the Viceroy was a separate matter and could not derogate from the treaty of alliance; the Emperor himself had not entered France at the day fixed, and his ambassadors had praised the King's proceedings at Boulogne. Replied that the Emperor had fulfilled both the treaty with the Viceroy and the agreement with Paget, and he was sure that the ambassadors in their congratulations did not depart from any point of the treaty; he had thought he had quite convinced the King on the subject of the declaration, for the Council, speaking recently of the aid, made no allusion to it, and when he himself raised it they made no reply. He was confirmed in this because the Council assured him the King had ordered that the Emperor's subjects should be allowed to trade freely with France. The King thereupon became very angry, saying that he looked for the aid accompanied by the declaration; and, calling his Council, he spoke to them harshly in English and looked at the treaty. He then asked Van der Delft to explain the clause referring to invasion, and Winchester made a long speech about the reply made to him in Brussels, viz., that regard for the Emperor's honour, who so recently emerged from the war, and the King's own interests ought to prevent their pressing for this declaration. Told him that he omitted one of the principal points, viz., the complaint made of the King's noncompliance with the treaty. The King promptly remarked that if he considered the treaty broken he had better say so. Said that the Emperor would not proceed to that extremity, but yet must observe his treaty with France, made with the King's consent; and, arguing the matter further, concluded that the consent weakened the provisions of the treaty to the extent of releasing the Emperor from the obligation to declare war. This the King denied; and asked whether if he now made peace with France and France afterwards invaded the Emperor he should be called upon to declare war against France. Answered that, by the treaty, he could not make peace with France without the Emperor's consent. Upon this point he seemed inclined to regard the Emperor's last letter of credence to Vander Delft regretting the recrudescence of war as a consent for him to come to an agreement with his enemy. Finally he asked whether, supposing he were satisfied with the aid alone, the Emperor would be satisfied with his aid alone in a similar case without declaration of war on his part. Vander Delft answered that he supposed not, for it was the consent which in this case gave the Emperor the advantage, and he instanced the Emperor's enmity with Scotland. As the King and Council remained obstinate that the Emperor was bound to declare war, Vander Delft begged the King to pardon his so often repeating the same arguments, and expressed hope that all difficulties would soon disappear with an honorable peace made by the Emperor's intervention, who in last letters again desired to know some means of acting therein. The King took this in good part, but complained that the Emperor had been so slow in pointing out to the French his obligations, which are even mentioned in his treaty with France. Not having seen that treaty, could only repeat that the Emperor had no means of knowing the King's views. Denied that the French were favoured by the Emperor, who had forbidden his subjects to enter French service and held two captains prisoners for disobeying this. Describes how he finally brought the King to say that if the Emperor would write to Vander Delft that affairs did not permit making the declaration required, and would ask him to be satisfied with the aid alone, he would make such a reply as should please the Emperor. Could get nothing beyond this, and Vander Delft pressed for a release of all arrests of property of the Emperor's subjects; telling him that the Emperor would release the sequestrations in Spain on condition that the property captured by Renegat was restored, the gold (as confiscated to the Emperor) delivered to the writer, and the Emperor's subjects indemnified. He answered that this should be done; and referred the writer to his Council.
The Council conceded entire release of seizures, goods suspected to be French being released against security; but they thought he should have patience touching Renegat, who was at sea and the goods in safekeeping.
The mayor of Plymouth and another wealthy citizen are in prison for dealing illegally with the goods of Quintana Dueñas, whom they will have to indemnify, as the Chancellor says. Paget has just come to say that the King thought him dejected yesterday, apparently because he had written to the Emperor only about the aid; the King now acknowledged that he did not instruct his Council to mention the declaration of war, but since the subject came up he must show that he had a right to demand it. Then, after discussing all the points, Paget said he wished to speak in confidence and unofficially; the King was so openhearted that if treated justly and straightforwardly anything might be done with him, but it behoved us to take care we did not lose him. Did the Emperor think that the King should give up Boulogne? I answered that I had no knowledge of that but was sure that you would desire any peace you were instrumental in making to be to the King's honour; had I done wrong in telling the King that Boulogne was not worth fighting for? Paget answered No. AS he seemed pleased, I said that if France would discuss peace without the restoration of Boulogne it might be concluded. Paget readily agreed to this; and soon afterwards took leave and returned to Court.
On the day that last courier left, the French fleet sailed from Wight, leaving the English at anchor, and landed some 1,500 men on the coast some 36 or 40 miles from here towards Dover. As they were not expected they burnt five or six cottages, before the men of the neighbourhood were assembled, who drove them back to their ships with the loss of 100 killed and drowned. It is strange that there is no news of Scotland where this King has so large an army of English, Spaniards and Italians. The King leaves tomorrow to continue his progress. Has just learnt that the Channel passage is again open and the Emperor's subjects may sail freely. Marvels at this sudden coming to reason after the style of talk lately. Portsmouth, 28 July 1545.

Just as last courier was mounting, another arrived with the Emperor's letters of the 16th, which, being addressed through Chapuys, were delayed by being sent to Malines and Louvain. Something to please this King or bring about peace seems desirable. Otherwise he may take a step which may turn to our great disadvantage. Portsmouth, 28 July 1545.

r. o On Saturday last (fn. n2) one Mychell of Sussex sent a post to us in Kent with a great alarm that the Frenchmen were on land, but, as he sent no letter, "wee neyther dyd ryng the larum ner steeryd nat." The same evening, at 10 p.m., came a letter (copy herewith) from Mr. Gawge, (fn. n3) out of Sussex, whereupon we rang the alarm and fired all our beacons. We were at Ukfyld by 9 or 10 a.m. on Sunday, and all the rest of the gentlemen were there the same night. After waiting for some advertisement from them of Sussex who lay near to the Frenchmen we were constrained to send a gentleman, with a guide, to them; and on Monday at 11 a.m. they sent word that we should turn back. As they sent no letter we thought ourselves, being so many gentlemen, not gently handled and therefore advertise your Grace of the premises. From the King's house of Knoll, 28 July.

28 July. 1299. Vaughan to Wriothesley.
R. O. Has paid Frederick van Riffenbergh the 5,500l. Fl. exchanged in England with Antony Bonvoys and Ancelyn Salvage, whose bill for 5,500l. Fl. was made payable here to Vaughan or Mr. Chamberleyn and seems to answer the 4,400l. st. mentioned in Wriothesley's letter. The said Frederic, being assured of all his men, says that Secretary Paget willed him to make no great haste until advertised what to do. It were well to answer him, for "time goeth fast away." This day Vaughan's servant, sent to Calles with his letters to the King, brought word of the arrival of the French fleet at St. Heleyns Poynt beside the Isle of Wight, "of the bowgyng of ij of the French galleys and takyng of one of their ships." Prays God send the King good luck, and that they may never return again. Men say that the Emperor will shortly return hither out of Almayn. Andwerp, 28 July.
P.S.— Today, at 1 p.m., Barth. Compaigne's servant brought Wriothesley's letter, together with a letter to Dymock, which shall be sent with diligence; but, as bearer is already on horseback, defers answer until his next. Much regard is given to the present war. Prays God, who has wonderfully blessed the King, to increase his "luck over these enemies, that his Majesty's power may be drad over the world." The letters he sent to Calles were straight passed over to Dover, and will show that he bought the alum at 16s. 6d. per cwt. and bartered the lead at 4l. 13s. 4d. per fodder; "and now lacketh nothing but answer from your Lordship." Knows not how ill success in the present wars might alter the matters, both of Jasper Dowche and of the alum; "but, if all be well, the King's Majesty shall have what shall please him and reign, as far as I perceive, over them all; for men have little hope in the French affairs. The ships are gone out evil furnished with all things and with evil hearts. Encourage therefore, my lord, the people, for, I ascertain your Lordship, there is no cause of doubt nor fear."
Will deliver Jasper Dowche's letter and write a resolute answer.

28 July. 1300. Wm. Damesell to Paget.
r. o Having long since written to the Lord Chancellor and, not being sure whether his Lordship is at Court, desires Paget to inform the King that, since coming hither, the writer has been in Gelderland suing for passport of these 600 barrels of gunpowder remaining of the King's provision. The Lady Regent and her Council gently put him off from day to day for twelve days, and then sent her secretary, Jacques de la Torre, hither with him to command the officers to pass the barrels without enquiring the contents; and also required the writer to lade them secretly, because the French king, being lately denied such passport, alleged that the King is permitted to have powder and munition hence at will, which those here will not acknowledge. Has now, according to my lord Chancellor's order, laden most of it, with other merchants' goods, in six hoys, four of which are already gone down to Zeland, and will lade the remaining 100 and odd barrels when he can find two more hoys. Asks what reward to give this secretary. Has also laden some "luntes" required by the master of the Ordnance.
Was commanded by the King to search for certain brass and iron ordnance at Syrycke See, but found there only three hulks of 200 tons, "no karvells but clynchers, such as the King's Majesty would not have, no manner of ordnance belonging unto them." The great ships lie at Armewe, where is ordnance to be sold for ready money, or else for sureties here, "for they fear a breach betwixt us and them." Was shown by the King that Sir John Gresham would give him 1,000l. for this, and that he should have a man appointed to choose it; and he could find it both in Zelond and Houlland, but doubts to get it away without licence, "these villains are so spiteful against our nation." The King can be best served from Breme or Hambrought.

The captain refused, and defied them. That night the wind came at N.W.

He said that the Lord Chancellor declared to him that the King forgave him all things past; and he had not since offended, nor would offend, although his friends in Scotland failed him. Hertford answered that, if it were so, he need not doubt but that he should be well treated "as a man in his case"; and, indeed, if his report be true, the King and Council may consider whether it is expedient to send him again to the Tower.

Gathers from words uttered by the English at Verona that they mean with 10,000 foot and 600 horse to assist the Duke of Savoy to recover his territory in Piedmont, but nothing can be done without the Emperor's consent as the force is insufficient and the Duke penniless. Evidently the King has some design in Italy; for Da L'Armi has sent 80 men to England, but not one officer, telling the writer and his brother that he wished to have them here.

Gratian Borasso, a native of Mayorca and now broker in Antwerp, has brought from the French king to Captains Charles Navarro and Morgante, now here in the King's service, two letters finely closed in silk buttons. Borasso, pretending to do the King a great service, delivered the letters to one Sanctacillia, also a native of Mayorca, who, at the suit of Chapuys, late the Emperor's ambassador, was commended by Suffolk to Hertford's service, to whom he forthwith brought the letters. Hertford thereupon caused Mr. Knyvet and Mr. Hobbye to examine Borasso, whose confession and answers to certain interrogatories are sent herewith, and who will tomorrow be sent up. Now, albeit Borasso pretended to do a service, it may be a practice to bring the said captains and all the Clevoyes in suspicion; for, if such practices as Borasso confesses were made in Flanders with Captain Lightmaker, they would no thave been divulged to Borasso; for, a matter of such importance, the Clevoyes being a great part of the horsemen here, would be wrought most secretly. If it be not true that the matter was moved to Lightmaker it is altogether a device to bring the said captains in suspicion. Suppose that Lightmaker is there and may be examined. If the King will have Charles Navarro and Morgant spoken with, the letters should be sent back to be shown; and meanwhile, as Borasso alleges that they are not privy to the matter, Hertford will make them good countenance as before, and yet trust them no further than "appertaineth."

30 July. 1316. Vaughan to Henry VIII.
R. O. Upon receipt of letters from my lord Chancellor and Sir Wm. Paget, I sent for Jasper Dowche and showed him that his obscure writing to Mr. Secretary and short writing to Barth. Compaigne needed explanation; and asked, first, whether Henry should pay more for the jewels than 30,000 cr. and, second, whether, the jewels being part of the 300,000 cr., the King should pay interest for them or only for 270,000 cr. He answered, contrary to his former promise, that he bargained with the Fowker to serve Henry with 300,000 ducats of 6s. 8d. Fl., at 10 per cent. for one year, in payment whereof Henry should take the jewels viewed by Peter Vanden Wale and set by the Fowker at 50,000 cr. at a price in which the said Peter should consider the service done to Henry by this emprunture at so small interest and not as the said Peter valued them before; he would not sustain the loss of 20,000 cr., but, as he presently writes to Secretary Paget, he would, if satisfied for his herrings, cause the Fowker to deliver the jewels for 40,000 cr. and pay the rest of the 50,000 cr. himself; he could if necessary cause half the money to be paid at Franckfort fair next September, and the rest at Andwerp, but as to payments in Hanborow, Breme or Lubeck there was no way save by bringing money from hence, which was too dangerous. He would not undertake to deliver the money in England, and Vaughan would not speak therein for fear of arousing suspicion. He would pay the whole sum here next August. He thought that as the price of the jewels was respited, reason would that interest should be paid upon it. But, as he swerved from his first price of the jewels, I "waded no further with him," saying that I had little courage either to send his letters into England or write any more therein. If, upon sight of Jasper Dowche's letters, it is resolved to go through with him, regard must be had to avoid arrest, and Vaughan must know where the money is to be used, so as to get the right kind. The money is ready, and Jasper Dowche will be sore aggrieved if it is not taken, and perhaps offer it to the French King's agents. The 100,000 cr. which the said agents seek upon "gajeur " of the lady of Vandome's revenues here "will not be had except a full sale be made of the same, and in this point, peradventure, th' Emperor hearing of th' ingajeur of those revenues, hath covertly set to buy them." In the Fowkers' matter Jasper Dowche writes both to Paget and Barth. Compaigne. It is said that the Princess of Spain is dead. If so the Emperor may seek him a new marriage in France. Frederic van Riffenberg has received all the money exchanged hither, except 1,000l. F1., which Vaughan has stayed by Paget's command, and will be able to "furnish his promise ' both for horsemen and footmen. Lately sent a contract subscribed by Fernando de Assa and Martin Lopes for 30,000 or 31,000 "kyntalles" of alum upon four conditions; but if the King send a signed promise to receive the alum in Hampton or London before next Easter and deliver lead for it at 4l. 13s. 4d. the fodder, Vaughan trusts to get their bond without these four conditions. Answer should be sent hither soon, for it will not be had another time, especially if the Emperor hear of it. Told them beforehand that it was but labour lost to put the said four points in their contract.
At the writing hereof, was told that letters were come to a merchant of Almayn reporting that the Emperor gathered men "to set the Duke of Brunswike again into his country." In Italy they mislike the Emperor's sending an ambassador to the Turk, and so encouraging him.
Fearing that the King would not accept the bargain with Jasper Dowche, has bargained with Chr. Haller, an Almain of whom he lately wrote to Paget, for 40,000 cr. to be lent to the King for one year at 13 per cent, (signed contract sent herewith) upon obligations of certain persons here; Vaughan undertaking to tell him certainly by 9 Aug. next or else pay him 200 cr. and cancel the bargain. This seems a more commodious bargain than that with the Fowker, as there are no jewels proffered nor other matter of trouble demanded; and doubtless more such bargains could be made. Would like to know the King's pleasure before 9 Aug., so as not to lose the 200 cr., and the obligations may be sent later; but the money will not be paid until Vaughan delivers the obligations. Andwerp, 30 July, towards night.

R. O. 2. Contract, made 30 July 1545, between Stephen Vaughan and Chr.

Haller shall furnish the money, or 30,000 cr. or 50,000 cr. more if he will, at 12 per cent, interest and 1 per cent, gratuity to be repaid at the payments of the fair of Pentecost 1546 in Antwerp. In security each of the following are to give two identical obligations for one third part of the sum, viz., (1) Messire Jehan Charlo delly Affaytatti, (2) Francisco Michaheli and Jher.

R. O. Has received their joint letter and also one from Paget about the matter of Jasper Dowche, of which he writes herewith to the King, and sends also letters from Jasper Dowche to Paget and to Bartilmew Compaigne. Jasper Dowche will lose if the King refuse the bargain, as Vaughan guesses he will. Has paid him for his pains in other bargains made last year, at ½ per cent. 300l. Fl. Sent an express messenger to Breme with their letter to Dymok. Frederic van Riffenberg has received all the money exchanged hither save 1,000l. Fl. which remained unpaid at the receipt of Paget's letter. Riffenberg will be able to serve with his number of horsemen and footmen. Looks daily for answer as to the alum and to Riffenbergh's matter. "I find no way to provide for the scruple of arrest unless it be found with your honours there" Certain folks of John Balbany's house and John Carolo's house have asked advice for money which they are charged to make for the King in Culleyn. Knows nothing thereof and therefore could not answer; but considers that he should know ere this if the matter should go forward. If the King take the Fowker's jewels at 40,000 cr. no interest should be paid. Pray send Bar. Compaigne his letters. Describes (as in No. 1316) his bargain with Chr. Haller. To maintain the writer's credit, bearer must return hither by 9 Aug. It is a better bargain than Jasper Dowche's; and if not taken, the money will go to France. Andwerp, 30 July, towards night.

Have received his letters of the 28th inst. and accordingly addressed forth the King's letters under stamp to the shires of Beds, Herts, Ntht. and Leic. And where the taking of 1,500 men out of Norfolk alone may be a great disfurniture in case the enemies should attempt anything there, his Lordship may take that number out of Norfolk and Suffolk at discretion and appoint convenient captains for them. Tichefeld, 31 July 1545.

31 July. 1324. [Paget] to the Council at London.
R. O. The King has seen your letters with the schedules therein of the declaration of the ships and their furniture, for the preparation whereof Wm. Watson was sent thither, and your proceedings for the getting in of money; "and also the copies of two other letters lately found there in London." His Highness thanks you, not doubting but that you will travail to get in as much money as you can, and requires the ships in the enclosed schedule to be hastened forth, furnished with mariners out of the rest, and with ordnance also, either borrowed or bought. For the setting forth of the said five ships his Highness thinks eight days too long; and as for their assurance, it is a thing not accustomed in such cases, but you must make them fair promises, in general terms, that when His Highness, who tarries for them at Portesmouth, sees them make diligence, he will favour them. As it appears that they must have money beforehand, you are to speak "with some of the Stilyard which be of the same townes (?) that they be of, and to procure the same to persuade the masters of the said v. ships to serve frankly and to be contented to take some pain at this present for his Majesty's contentation." In my fantasy, if the ordnance were brought by land, the ships, being only furnished merchantlike, as if going to the Bay, might be suffered to pass the enemy, for the enemies are now not far from Dover. When you ship your own soldiers and the rest out of the shires, it must be in places whence they may pass surely to Calays, where all must land. Knowledge of this may be had from the lord Warden of the Five Ports.

R. O. According to the King's pleasure declared by Mr. Blunt, has taken the musters, and encloses the names of the leaders with their numbers. The crew was 3.498, the inhabitants and labourers at Sandyngbay, 1,716; and, now that the Ampshyre men are sent away, the crew is but 812. Commends the captain, who explains that the inhabitants and labourers in the Wythe are fewer than heretofore (the King told the writer that he should find over 2,000) because most of the labourers at Sandyng Bay were discharged, the mariners are taken up for shipping, and others have fled the isle or are dead. Fifty not mentioned in this book are bestowed in the blockhouses. Has been round the island, on the south side by land and on the north by water. On the south side are no roads for either ships or boats, so that men invading there must trust entirely to what they shall find within the Isle. On the north side are safe landing places; but then the enemy are not masters of the sea, although the King's navy does not come nigh them, and the country is there unmeet for conveying artillery or marching, as it is "fowle, full of egerowse, lans, dyks, wods, yll and dale, and in sum placys marys." Expects that the enemy's galleys will make war by landing men to spoil and burn; and the remedy is to make bulwarks "by the hard shore" in the most likely places, for galleys will never enter land thus fortified for fear of attack at their retirement, which must often be hurried.
"I have sent your Majesty the spoyle of the gentylmen, (fn. n8) by Master Sands [who hathe] verye honestly holp my lord Sands in orderyng of hys men, and whythe hym the man that kyllyd one of the gentylmen, who hathe gret prays of the gentylmen and sogyars that say whythe what spyryt and stomak a dyd yt."

31 July. 1330. Gentlemen of Worcestershire to the Council.
R. O. The King's subjects of the county of Worcester, upon a second firing of the beacons of Oxfordshire, set forward towards Portismowthe, and after three days' journey received, between Wantaige and Newbery, about 10 a.m., the Council's letters for their retirement until again warned; whereupon they returned and came home on Wednesday night. (fn. n9) That night, about midnight, Mr. Sergeant Knottisford arrived at his house at Malverne, reporting that the shire should forthwith make all haste towards Portismowthe, but could show no written warrant and would not tarry to meet the sheriff and gentlemen at Wiche next day. The writers have therefore not accepted his warning, especially as he declared it very doubtfully, and also told the bailey of Worcestre and others "how that my lord of Suffolche his Grace and the Master of thorse, both of them [sayd ?] . . . . . . . . of the 1'res which it . . . . . . . . . .

R. O. Knowing the King's long expectation after the Western ships, for which I have addressed to you sundry letters and trust that all which you signified to be ready are ere this gone to Portesmouthe, I desire you to ascertain me in writing what ships are gone thither, the wind being favourable as it is, and what remain not thoroughly furnished. And where I was commanded to write to you and all other ports of these West parts for the general restraint of all vessels, they are now to be set at liberty, foreseeing always that those appointed for Portesmouthe go thither to attend the King's fleet. Any adventurers who may come in are to give sureties to repair thither also. If any show himself unwilling I will punish him although he were mine own near kinsman. "Further praying you that if there shall arrive into your port any hulks of three or four hundred and above, [sta]ye them until such time as you shall further [hear fro]m me." Notwithstanding any bruit of the departure of the Kings's fleet from Portesmouthe towards France, send all adventurers to Portesmouth. Excetour, last day of July 1545.

31 July. 1332. Lord Poynings to Henry VIII.
R. O. On Wednesday afternoon, 29th inst., the French galleys arrived and drove two small crayers ashore on this side St. John's Road. Sent men secretly thither who with hacquebuts and arrows kept the galleys' skiffs from landing to spoil the crayers, and afterwards, suffering them to land, "gave them so sharp an onset that, notwithstanding all the shot of the great ordnance, which was as much as they could make, forced divers of the galley men to seek their swimming under the water and killed of them when our men stood almost to the chin in the sea." Our men then rescued the ships, "bowged" by us, and brought away all ordnance, sails, &c. The same night the galleys set them on fire. Yesterday their whole army upon the sea, 200 sails, drew hitherwards and brought their galleys into a little bay before Paulled, where they set the Admiral of France on land to communicate with Mons. du Bies and others about finishing their fortress and making another upon the hill where the Master of the Horse lay. The same day they sought a great skirmish at our hands, and were, as before, forced to retire with loss. On Wednesday aforesaid they brought maunds and ordnance to the hill over against the Old Man "from whence they did much beat the haven; and the same night I caused a certain in camisados t'assail the same maunds and ordnance." Our men found the ordnance withdrawn but overthrew the maunds and retired without loss. The enemies intend to land pioneers for the making of their fortresses here. Boulloigne, 31 July 1545. Signed.
