21 April. 635. The Privy Council.
A.P.C., 391.
Meeting at Greenwich, 21 April. Present: Chancellor, Essex, Durham, Cheyney, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Petre, Baker. Business:—Warrant to the Exchequer, to pay upon bills of Winchester, &c., for victualling beyond seas, 4,000l Passport for Popyns Sybrant to Flanders for 20 days. Warrant to Cavendish to deliver 400l. for the King's ships, to Robert Legge, who had also warrant to the Exchequer for 1,000l. Warrant to Mr. Uvedale to pay wages (specified) to Robert Sutton and George Warwyke, gunners at Carlisle. Letter to the Lord Great Master (who had replied to a letter from Sir Wm. Peter and Dr. Wotton that the salt, which he was understood to have stayed at Dover, was stayed at Portewaye by Sir Thomas Seymour), that, as the man who claimed it made daily suit for the salt or its value, his Lordship should bestow it to the King's use and content the man with its just value, upon surety that if proved lawful prize the money should be repaid. Warrant to treasurer of Augmentations to deliver Sir Ant. Knyvet 1,000l. towards affairs of the ordnance; and another warrant to the treasurer of the Tenths' for like purpose.
21 April. 636. Hertford and Others to Henry VIII.
R. O. Hertford has received a letter from the Council touching the present want of men in Ardre as an opportunity for its surprise; or else, as the Almains are now come and a reinforcement of men and victuals is likely to be sent from Estaples to Ardre, to consider what may be done at Estaples; and, lastly to use all dexterity to annoy Arde. A gentleman of Arde called Villneuf, taken prisoner "the last day," who has heretofore given good intelligence to Lord Graye and intends never to return into his country, affirms that Arde is victualled for 5 or 6 months, "and having reysed a walle of the festyng, he saithe that although the festyng were wonne we were never the nerer the wynnyng of the towne," the ditches of which are so deep as to require ladders to go down with, and then no ladder will reach the top of the wall. No Spaniards, Italians, Almains or other men of war, the flankers not taken away nor breach made, will venture the assault. A captain called Sanct Marye with an ensign of 150 footmen entered the town the night that Graye and Knyvet were there. Hertford trusts by Friday (fn. n1) to learn the perfect state of Estaples and within two or three days afterwards to view it; and thereupon, leaving this piece in better surety than at present, to attempt it if the enterprise seem feasible. Greatly lack the bread or biscuit which has been long looked for out of England.
Three boats with wine and necessaries were coming from Estaples to Porte Hill on Thursday night last (fn. n2) and sent a mariner of Newhaven by land to meet them at the landing place. This mariner, being captured by our Albonoyes and brought to Bulloigne, declared the matter to Mr. Ellerker; whereupon the Council there sent out a boat which drove two of the boats upon the rocks, but the third escaped. Our men took 6 or 7 prisoners. The said mariner, fearing to be hanged for giving intelligence, means never to return home, and has given Hertford a declaration (herewith) of the state of the French king's navy and the names of the ships. The 25 or 26 galleys which the French king had last year are decayed to 14 by "lying dry," and both he and the other mariners agree that Estaples haven will destroy all galleys sent thither; for "albeit they go about to make a bay for them" it cannot be kept from filling with sand. He says that this was the state of things at his being there fourteen days past, and that a light boat sent along the coast would daily happen upon some prize or fisherman from whom to learn their doings. Hertford, therefore, intends tonight to send forth a small shallop of his own which lies here. Newehaven in Bullonoyes, 21 April 1546.
P.S.—At closing this, learnt that Mons. de Bees came yesternight to Estaples with 200 men of arms and "shall enjoy the room and office he before had." Signed: E. Hertford: T. Seymour: H. Knyvet: Tho. Wiatt.

21 April. 637. Hertford to Petre.
R. O. Not having his robes here, and St. George's Day being so near, cannot accomplish his duty according to his oath, and requires Petre to obtain him the King's dispensation. Newe Haven in Bullonoyes, 21 April 1546. Signed.
P.S.—Having here neither banner of the King's arms nor flag of St. George, although he has written for them to Mr. Paget, requires that order may be given to Mr. Sadleyr for having them out of the Great Wardrobe with all diligence.
Note in Paget's hand appended.—"Mr. Carden (God comfort him) was spoken unto in it. Tomorrow I go to see the camp. W. Paget."

21 April. 639. Lisle and Paget to Henry VIII.
R. O. Considering that the Admiral of France is not yet come, nor (the French court being 27 posts hence and word sent to him no sooner than Sunday last, (fn. n3) when Bernardo arrived at Ardre) can come so soon, and that the world might note that the King's Admiral and Secretary tarry here for him while the Frenchmen have but one at Ardre, the writers have decided that Paget shall remain at Calais or Guysnes and the Admiral repair to the camp, as though sent thither in the King's service, until the Admiral of France be come to Ardre, of whose coming Bernardo puts no doubt. Cales, 21 April 1546. Signed.

21 April. 640. Peace Negotiations.
R. O. Francis I.'s commission to the Sieur Dhannebault, [chevalier of his Order], mareschal and admiral of France, Mre. Pierre Remon, of the Privy Council and First President of Rouen, [and Guil]laume Boch[ete]l, secretary of Finances and greflier of his said Order, to treat with plenipotentiaries of England for peace. Ferrieres, 21 April 1545 arant Pasques.
French. Parchment. Mutilated and illegible (the more so by misplacement of fragments in repairing).
21 April. 641. Camillo Capilupo to the Cardinal of Mantua.
v. No 382.
Omitted in his last to answer the request in the ciphered letter of the 15th for his own opinion, as Granvelle spoke so plainly. Thinks it well to issue the general order against enlistments, but let the French agents understand that it is not aimed at France, and to concede the places demanded by France. Should England complain, the Cardinal might apologise by his ecclesiastical grade, as England cannot injure him. Ratisbon? 21 April 1546.

653. Garter King of Arms to Shrewsbury.
Shrewsb. MS.,
A., p. 95.
I would have been glad to speak with your Lordship for your pedigree ere you departed. Pray send word what you will have done therein. The King has deferred the service of St. George because it falleth on Good Friday; and because of the Utas of the feast of Easter it shall be kept on Monday after Low Sunday. Our men have well sped at Guisnes, taking 160 prisoners, 30 of whom are captains and gentlemen, and slaying 120. "And an other skyrmesshenge syns by Sir Henry Knyvett and the horsemen with my lorde of Hertforde hathe taken xj men of arms and fyfty other souldiers and their vyttells which they conduite to Arde." It is said here that the Admiral of France and the French King's Chief Secretary are come to Calleys or Guysnes, and my lord Admiral and Mr. Pagett are there to meet them. London, 22 April. Signed: X. B. (fn. n12) al's Gartier.
Pray remember me with a piece of venison. I shall deserve it to my little power.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: knight of the Garter.
22 April. 654. J. Monluc to Paget.
R. O.

Expects the messenger today, and meanwhile sends bearer to present his compliments to the Admiral of England and Paget. Ardre, 22 April. Signed.
French, p. 1. Add. Endd.: 1546.
22 April. 655. Marquis Antonio Palavicino to Paget.
R. O. Upon receiving his letter went at once to Venice and learnt from Signor Ludovico da le Arme the King's offer. Although the princes of Italy have forbidden the going to the service of other princes without special leave, yet, because of the King's good treatment of the Italian nation and having a place in which to make the muster, he offers 2,000 footmen and 200 horse and can find room for half that number for 20 days. Venice, 22 April 1546.
Italian. Hol., p. 1. Add.
22 April. 656. Angel Mariano to Paget.
R. O. By the Signor Ludovico dalle Arme received Paget's letter of 18 Feb. showing that many letters of his have been received and are acceptable to the King and Paget, and referring him to the Signor Ludovico. To speak his mind freely, thinks that, having been the means of converting so important a personage as Signor Luigi Gonzaga, and with him so many Italian knights, the concluding of such a matter should have been given to him rather than to any other Italian; but he sees clearly of what importance it is to be near at hand or to be far off. Will prove that no one of his rank can do more service than he, and that if others can speak well he can work well. Begs to be recommended to the King. Venice, 22 April 1546.
. All the princes of Italy have forbidden their subjects to take money from any other princes;—except this Venetian Signory, who are also about to make [like] proclamation. Cares not, as he knows that the men he offered will not fail. Is constrained to beg that the captains whom he has entertained, upon the rumor that the King would use them, may have their good will recognised, in part if not in all. Signed.
P.S. (on separate slip).—Has lastly to relate that, speaking with Signor Luigi and saying that the King with accustomed liberality would certainly send him a present, he answered that he would only accept some jewel to give to his wife, as to the dearest thing he has in the world.

22 April. 657. Gio. Andrea Gromo to Paget.
R. O. Came to Venice intending to come with all diligence to the King for important matters, but business (alcun' altre cose quali hortaccio) compelled him to defer it. Assures him of devoted service. Venice, 22 April 1546.
Italian. Hol., p. 1. Add.
22 April. 658. John Kell to Paget.
R. O. Encloses copy of a letter which the countie Lodovico Rangone has directed to the King, and begs Paget to show the more favour because of the Count's "great faith" to the crown of England and amity with the the Signor Louizo Gonzago, which may be proved by admitting them jointly to the King's service. Signor Louizo trusts no man in Italy so much as the Count, as appears by a letter he sent to Mr. Ambassador. Venice, 22 April '46.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: To, etc., Sir Win. Padget, knight, and secretary to the Mte of England, at the Court.
23 April. 659. Lord William Howard to the Council.
R. O.
My lord Admiral being commanded to repair to Calyse left me lieutenant of the army till his return, with instructions to watch for certain hulks that were to pass through the Narrow Seas and stay such of them as were laden with corn or were of 800 or 900 burthen, but let all under 400, not laden with corn, pass. On Thursday last, (fn. n14) about 8 a.m., we escried them coming, and at noon met them "whart of Dovere", 150 sails. We caused them to strike, but, the wind blowing sore at N.E. and it being upon the ebb, we were driven as far as Chambere Naysse, and there anchored. As we drove I caused their masters to come aboard and sent our captains and masters to search their ships. Only five were laden with corn, the rest being in ballast, and there was none above 400 tons. Four of those with corn had each a "vydimus", but without the King's seal or the seal of "your ambassador there resident." I send "one of their vydimus with their letter joined to it." They are so ill anchored and tackled that, unless the weather amend, I must send them into Portchmouthe. They came out of Holland. Another fleet is to come out of Zeland, of far greater ships, which I trust to meet if not forced by weather to go to Portchmouthe. I stayed one hulk of 400 not laden because she is fair and new. The weather was so sore when we met them that the Venecian ship and the Pauncy burst their cables and lost their anchors, and our boats had much ado to board the hulks. Next morning, although I had the masters aboard with me, one of the corn ships sailed away; but I sent Mr. John Wynkfeld in the Small Gaylye after her, while with the rest I sailed to anchor at Bechy, for we could no longer ride at the Naysse. "If the wind rise sorer I must be fain to go with Portchmouthe which I would be very loth to do. After the ending of this letter the ship was brought in again." Written in the Venecian, 23rd "of this present."

Yesterday at the camp at Newhaven the enclosed letters were sent me (with others of like effect to my lord Admiral) from Mons. Monluc, implying that the gentleman whom he sent to the Admiral had returned to Ardre yesternight and now came hither with the Admiral's excuse that he came not so soon as we; for he only heard on Tuesday (fn. n15) of our intent to come, and within four hours sent forward part of his train and intended to follow himself on Wednesday and, although "an ill poster," to be at Monstreull on Monday. The messenger said that Monluc desired to speak with my lord Admiral and me (as before he had requested by Francisco Bernardo), but we considered that if things were not forward the Frenchmen might afterwards brag that your Majesty was driven to send your Admiral and Secretary to treat with Mons. Monluc; and I answered that my lord Admiral was now occupied at the camp with your Lieutenant, who nevertheless, upon their Admiral's arrival in these parts, would take order that he and I might commune with him and Monluc "for such purposes as I and Mons. Monluc arrived in these quarters." The messenger replied that if my lord Admiral were not here then Monluc would speak with me. I said we could not well meet, for I had no commission to treat the matter alone. The messenger said that Monluc would venture to come hither to-morrow to dine with me, give the Admiral's commendations and renew old acquaintance; and so return to Ardre. As it seemed somewhat to your honour that one of the French commissioners should come to your town to seek upon one of your commissioners, I answered that he should be welcome. If he try "to fish out of me the likelihood of success of this practice he shall be never the nearer," and if I can get anything out of him you shall shortly hear it. In case he desire to speak again before the Admiral's coming, please signify whether my lord Admiral should be present.
Suggests that, as my lord of Hertford is here at hand and during this talk may have occasion to be at Calais and Guisnes, and is the Ring's lieutenant general here and one of the Privy Council, he should be in the commission for this treaty. Delivered the King's "plat" to Hertford in presence of the lord Admiral and John Rogers, surveyor of works at Boulogne. Speaks highly of the speed with which the works at Newhaven have been made. Within these six weeks no army will be needed there. Calays, 23 April 1546. Signed.

I send a copy of our commission in case the King will alter it; also a letter from Dymok, which please answer, if need be.

R. O. This day, hearing of letters freshly come from Al[main] from men belonging to the Palsgrave, found means to have a sight of them. They were from one Bookenbynder, who was twice or thrice in England in my lord of Essex's time, and always well rewarded. Now he has 200 fl. a year from the Palsgrave. The letters reported that the Palsgrave and the bp. of Wormes had entered the Protestant League, and on the 23rd. inst. would proclaim it in their dominions. If this be true what alteration is to be made in the writer's instructions? Duke Philip thinks he is not entered in all matters of religion, but only for defence. Will delay making access to the Palsgrave to see whether word shall come out of England, and in any case the journey will take four or five days longer than he expected; for yesterday both Duke Philip and he were secretly informed that the Grave van Rittenberg, having lost all he had by the service of the duke of Brunswyke lays wait to trap Duke Philip, and has with him certain Almains who in their drunkenness lately boasted that they would speak with all Englishmen passing between this and Colloygne; and Petre van Gueldres is now here, as it is thought, to advertise them of any likely man drawing that way. Have therefore devised to depart tonight towards Holland and so through Gueldres.
On the 26th inst. the Princes meet again at Worms, where I trust to find Chr. Mownt. Antwerppe, 23 April 1546.
P.S.—Peter van Geldres came to me and, lamenting untrue reports of him to the King, desired me, in charity, to write that he might be admitted to his declaration. He has reconciled himself to the Duke, who would now take him for captain of an ensign of footmen in the King's service. Dare not be rude to any of them, but has much ado to speak them fair, and begs pardon for writing herein. The Duke has, both himself and by his servants, solicited this matter and Peter will needs tarry here for the answer, which he says may be sent either to Mr. Damisell or Dymmoke. "I am now all in my gun and bowspears. If we meet with any adventure you shall hear of a wonderful battle. What we shall do at the joining I can not tell; but hitherto I fear much less than doth our captain."

We arrived here yesternight, and leave tomorrow. In this journey I have had long conferences with the Duke touching the joining of Frederic and his friends with the King, but have found in him a certain suspicion of Frederic. This morning the Duke said that, two months past, he noticed Frederic's annoyance that the King had not congratulated him, as other princes did, on his becoming elector. Christopher Mont, to whom he mentioned this, had no instructions. The same day he spoke of the matter with the Elector's secretary, who said the Elector was so knit with the French king, they being "in a fair league together," that he could not well have friendship with the King. He does not believe this, but thinks I should proceed cautiously, for if there be a league it were better to keep these things secret from the Elector; he did not tell this to the King of England, but had he known, as he now does, my instructions, he would not have forgotten it, for he would not have the King abused by any man, whether uncle or brother. I answered that I would first learn how the Elector stood with the Protestants; and, the French king being in "inimytie" with us, I had nothing to say but might well be said; it must be a fast knot that such honor as the King now offered would not stir, and the Duke might help me to speak first with the secretary, whom I know well. This he promised, saying that by the way we should consult further. Captain Heydhike, who seems a plain man and true servant of the King, accompanied me home and, talking of the "good company he would keep me in Hadelberg, he wished that the Elector would this good time take his leave of the world and give place unto his nephews," for Otho Henryke and Duke Philip were devoted to the King and were men without dissimulation, whereas Frederic was "brought up under a crafty schoolmaster, and can give fair words and mean nothing less"; he can do little with his neighbours; the Protestants go with him as with a suspected friend. The King, he continued, might carry the other two "in his sleeve" and, by the help of their friends, give a great stroke to the appointment of Emperor when this Emperor dies. "Die, 'quoth I, what, he is a young man.' If he live, quoth he, two years hang me the third; he is more sickly than men know, and hath in his head so many compasses and frantic fancies as he therewith will fret himself to death." And the King should take an honorable peace and quietly await that time; and then, making an Emperor whom he can trust, he need fear no hindrance by the French king.
Reports these babblings as there is nothing else to write. Would gladly know, in case there be such a league between the French king and the Elector, whether to be so frank as his instructions warrant. Antwerppe, 23 April 1546.

R. O. Signor Ludovico delle Arme brought him Paget's letters, which were a pleasant assurance that he is remembered by Paget, and his faithful service appreciated by the King. From Signor Ludovico he learnt the King's pleasure and will not fail therein. Is forced, as before, to declare his necessity and beg help that he may have at least the same entertainment as the others, being in the same charge, his pension having always been 300 ducats and theirs 600 ducats; and he an exile from his house, dependent only on God and the King, while they have fortunes and can live at home at small expense. Has been continually at Venice, where everything is very dear (dore si compra carissimo fino al sole), with the Ambassador, consuming not only himself but his companions and friends. Is sure that that is not the King's intention. Signor Ludovico has asked each of them for an opinion how to attack the King's enemies; and, although he wrote to the King therein on 20 March last, now that Ludovico asks whether they are able when required to give the number of men they promised, he writes briefly to the King—there being no time because the intimation was only given today and Francescho leaves tonight.

R. O. Protests his devotion to Paget ever since the time when he wished to enter the King's service, attracted by his Majesty's liberality and innate English courtesy. Received with great pleasure his letter by the Signor Ludovico dalle Armi and, having all assembled in the Ambassador's house at Venice and maturely considered everything, sends herewith his opinion for harassing France. As to the Bishop of Rome, not being so well instructed, has not written his opinion at present. As to the King's question whether the 2,000 footmen offered will be always ready at request, answers that, besides his promised 2,000, he offers 2,000 more if a mustering place may be found for them here in Italy. Because of the great concourse of men depending upon us who desire to serve the King, we are forced either to serve there where the war is or else, remaining in Italy, alienate all we have in the world; and therefore if the King wishes us to serve in Italy he should entertain some captains with us. This your lordship may, with your accustomed courtesy, mention to his Majesty. Venice, 23 April 1546.
This entertaining of some captains all adds to the King's service and reputation.

According to Paget's letter of yesterday, Monluc arrived this forenoon and, renewing old acquaintance, set forth his realm's desire for peace, so it might be honorable and they "not escorsed and fleen to the bones," saying that he came, first, to excuse the delay of the Admiral of France's coming, and secondly, to give the Admiral's message that, as the failure to make peace now would either indicate legierete on both sides or mortal enmity between the princes, the thing having been so often attempted, he wished Monluc to bring the resolution to such perfection that his meeting with my lord Admiral might be for the conclusion. Monluc would therefore say, in few words, to what points the French king would descend, and hear from Paget the King's resolution. Paget replied, citing what Francisco Bernardo had done herein, and how, upon promise that the Admiral of France would meet my lord Admiral and him, the King had joined them in commission to commune together and not apart; it seemed best therefore that the French Admiral should come straight to Ardre as appointed, and then, if an accord did not follow, the fault should be his. Monluc answered that the Admiral would surely come and only feared tract of time; the burnt child dreads fire, and last year the English ambassador with the Emperor provoked him to come thither but nothing followed. Paget replied that my lord Admiral and he had commission to talk with the Admiral, but not with any other man alone. Monluc said that he would either go or send to Monstreull on Monday (fn. n16) to meet with the Admiral, who was a personage that could not be long absent from Court and, therefore, desired such resolution taken that within two or three meetings the matter might be determined; the questions were, what recompense we would ask for Boulloyn, what days of payment we would give for that and for their debt, and what we would do in the matter of the Scots; and they would bring their resolution as to what they would give and at what days, what we should keep in Boullonnoys in the meantime besides the pension, and likewise for the matter of the Scots. But Paget declined to enter upon particulars, and only "talked in clouds with him therein to feel their inclinations." Conjectures that they mean to pay the pension yearly (but nothing in hand, as that would cripple them if they had occasion to defend or invade any other prince) and expect days both for arrearages and recompense; also that the recompense should be far less than appointed in the King's instructions. It would seem that they would make a peace taliter qualiter for the time being, and within a year a further treaty; for Monluc said often that peace now should be a beginning, and within a while he hoped to see things so established that the kings should pass their "old days togethers in love and amity." Calais, Easter Even, late in the night, 1546.
P.S.—Monluc told me that the President of Rowen is in commission with the Admiral; wherefore your Majesty may address hither Mr. Wootton or some other for the making of the treaties in writing, and let him bring out of your Treasury certain knowledge when the last payment of your pension was made, "what ought to be paid yearly, and what is now in arrearages. And (fn. n17) in the meantime if we come to talk we will be sure to ask with the most." Signed.

Returns copy of a piece of the treaty with France, copied out of the Treasury by Mr. Godsalve so falsely that in one place, as will be seen, there is no congruity. Petre may cause Godsalve to examine the thing better. Encloses a letter he has received from Mr. Mason, from which may be guessed what hope is to be had in his legation. Pray help us to a certain answer "whether we shall follow our instructions and practise in the thing by times, or whether, if we see the Admiral will come to resolute points and tarry no practices," the King will appoint a divergence from the prescribed manner,—to be used "at the extremity of breaking." I have just received your short letter answering mine of the 21st and will send your other to my lord of Hertford; who looked yesternight and tonight "for Mons. de Bees to give him alarm at the camp, and hath prepared for him so as, if he come, he shall ere he depart wish himself in the Bastion in Parys, where the fond bruit was he remained prisoner."

R. O. Has this day a letter from Mr. Carne, the ambassador, from Bynckes, with the Queen's answer that she will not suffer the King's corn to leave Dorte. Came to Andwerppe the 22nd inst., having despatched all things from Amesterdam and trusting that ere this "those 9 ships" are arrived at Calais and Dover. His servant is at Brame for the 300 last of wheat there, 200 last of which should be already despatched. Will sell the rye that he has at Dorte, and if possible convey the wheat to Amesterdam, where the customer will, for a bribe, pass it. Has received another passport from Mr. Carne for 100 last of Est Lands corn from Amesterdam, but there is none there. As he wrote in his last, has 1,400l. Fl. left. There is Rhenish wine at Dorte, and bacon and butter at Amesterdam which may be exported without licence if the Council would bestow the money upon them. Asks instructions, which may be sent to Mr. Damesell.

The wind was so strainable at N.E. that they were forced "to go with Portchmouthe," where he begs the Council to send some man of skill to view the hulks. As soon as the wind serves will return to the Narrow Seas, as his commission is; and intends to put all the hulks into the haven lest they steal away. One of them is a ship of 800, laden with pitch and masts, "that never made voyage afore this." Written in the Venecian, afore Portchmouthe, the 25th of this present.
