October 1546, 21-31

21 Oct. 293. Vaughan to Paget.
R. O. This morning I presented the Ryngrave and the Doctor with the money for their postage. The Doctor, with whom I had long communication concerning the countries of the Rhine, writes his answer herewith. "The Cowntie Frederike is supposed more to favour the Princes Protestants than the Emperor." The Ryngrave on receiving the King's letters accepting his service, asked whether I brought his "bestalling brief,"—a patent mentioning his wage—acceptance without wages seemed smally to his purpose. I said I knew nothing, being only charged to deliver the writing and passport and the King's present towards his post horses. Pray speak with Mr. Chancellor of the Augmentations for his house in Woodestrete, which a son of Mr. Locke's seeks to get. I return all your letters by bearer. My lord Chancellor read them all save one, and my lord of Herfforde all. From my house, this Thursday morning.
The Ryngrave would go away to-morrow if answered in the matter above written.
P.S.—"My servant which I sent to you this morning forgat behind him this letter."

R. O. Good letters have never wanted patrons to defend them from the darts of ignorance; and this island, which contains more men of letters than a great part of Europe formerly held, is happy in having a King who, besides other incomparable gifts, is learned to a miracle, and many noble men zealous of doctrine, among whom Paget is at once the most learned among the noble, the noblest among the learned. Beg that now when all their affairs are committed to the King's disposal, Paget, who holds the dearest place with his Majesty, will get them anew established for the use of students. Oxford, 10 cal.

Yesterday came letters to the Lady Regent from the Emperor, of the 12th inst., conveyed by an adventurer on foot through the Lansgrave's camp to Spyres. Can only learn thereof that the Emperor has won Nuburge by appointment and Rayn and Tunwarde by assault, with loss of many men, and intends to take Ulmes and then lie all winter in the Duke of Wyttynburge's country, who is with the Landsgrave and his country "verve plentuouse." The Emperor practises to withdraw the Landsgrave's captains and their men by offer of double pay. It is reported from Spyres that the Landsgrave is out of his camp, in Norlyngen, and his soldiers calling for money. The States of Brabant have now at Lovayn given the Emperor, towards payment of certain debts, 300,000 gilderns. The other States of Flanders and the Low Countries must follow, and it is reckoned that he will get a million at least. He is also given half the revenues of the churches throughout his dominions and Empire. The French king is said to have a great army ready in Piemount to invade Milan. Other occurrents are none but that Somerset, the herald, departed hence this morning. Bruxelles, 23 Oct. 1546. Signed.

Your Lordships wrote that bearer, John de Lien, sued for part of such lands as were his before the conquest, and that I should signify whether he had served as a guide, and what portion of the lands should be granted. He served as a guide, very honestly, and before the conquest had a little house in the Market Place here, and two small cottages in a back lane; "and albeit his suit and request is for the whole iij houses, it m[ay] please your Lordships to bestow such parc[els as your Lordships] shall think meet [according to] your good Lordships' wisdoms [and] considerations."

Bearer, the Emperor's subject, who, with permission of Mons. de Vendville, my master, has been more than a year supplying your town and Boulloingne with victuals, when last at Boulloingne, with the knowledge and leave of my lord Gray, bought some "cuirs adobbez" and brought them as far as your town, where they were arrested on the ground that such export is forbidden, which he did not know. Mons. de Vendville orders me to require you to permit the passage of the said leather, as the amount is so small, or at least, as reason is, restore the money he paid for it. You know that here the Emperor's commandment is not strictly kept in the matter of victuals; and those who bring you them ought to be more favoured than others. Gravelinghes, 24 Oct. 1546. Signed.

This morning came letters to the Lady Regent from Spyrse of the 15th. inst. reporting that the Emperor has won five towns, two of them by assault. They include Eslyngen and Tumbynga, which latter much hindered the coming of victuals to the Emperor's camp by Danubium, and was gotten by assault. The Emperor passed by the Landsgrave's camp, wherein the Duke of Lunyburge has been slain with a piece of artillery, and summoned Ulmes, which is so commanded by a mountain that it cannot hold out eight days. In last skirmish 800 of the Emperor's men were slain, but none of renown. Nothing is said of losses on the other side. Victuals are plentiful.
This news has much rejoiced the Lady Regent and all here. The Lady Regent is also advertised that the Duke of Wyttynberg has gathered 20,000 peasants to reinforce the Landsgrave's army. Bruxelles, 24 Oct. 1546. Signed.

R. O. As the enclosed letter, received from Mr. Wotton, treasurer of Calays, refers to Paget, they send it by bearer, Captain Salablanca (whom it concerns), that, if there be any such matter, a letter may be written for his payment, which the writers will gladly sign, and if not that he may be told there to make no further suit.

25 Oct. 306. Alvise Mocenigo, Venetian Ambassador with the Emperor, to the Council of Ten.
v., No. 412.
Signor Marsilio, the Emperor's equerry, told him secretly of a report in the Emperor's chamber that France, England and Venice were negociating a league with the Protestants against the Emperor, and the Signory had sent an agent into Switzerland; also that all Italy except the Signory had prohibited trade with the Protestants of Germany, and the Emperor said that Venice might well forego that trade for one or two months. Knowing the Signory so excellently disposed towards the Emperor, he could not believe such a report and said that he would not write it unless Marsilio could get confirmation of it. This he promised to do, but afterwards fell ill of the gout. To-day Messer Bernardino Pavese, a gentleman in the King of England's service, came to say that he heard from a great personage that Signor Alvise Gonzaga of Castel Zuffre had written to the Emperor that France, England, Venice and the Switzers had formed a defensive league; and that he (Gonzaga) knew it by letters from the King of England himself. The ambassador of Ferrara says that Don Francesco da Este wrote to his brother the Duke that the Emperor has ordered Annibal Calavrese to escape over to the camp of the Protestants, probably to drop a word about agreement; and has allowed to pass thither two Germans who offer to kill the Landgrave. Annibal is now in the Protestant camp. Camp, 3 leagues from Ulm, 25 Oct.
25 Oct. 307. Advices from Piedmont.
viii., No. 341.
Small hope of permanent settlement of English affairs although negociations continue. The King of England wishes to have the daughter of Scotland, to which France will not consent. France greatly fears agreement between the Emperor and the Lutherans, and recently sent M. de Villarand to the Landgrave to prevent it.
26 Oct. 308. William Damesell to Paget.
R. O. Forwards a packet received to-day from Mr. Dymocke and a letter from Sir Edward Carne. Has by instructions from Sir John Gresham laden the King's copper, bought of the Fugger, to the sum of 20,000l. Fl., in hoys some of which are already arrived safely. Thinks Gresham's letters insufficient, and begs that he may have a commandment either from Paget or from the Council. Andwerpe, 26 Oct. 1546.

26 Oct. 309. Wotton to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P., xi. 333.
Received the Council's letters of the 9th inst. at Langres on the 17th, the French king having removed thence the day before. Was at Court thrice, but could not get audience until Sunday the 24th. Declared as instructed; and the French king answered that his ambassador wrote likewise, and, if suspicions should move him, why should Henry fortify at Habletune or Bullingbergh if he meant to restore Boleyn, but Henry's promise moved him more; as for Portet it should be found to have been begun long before the treaty and was made only for the re victualling of his own fort. Mary! if he fortified at the point of the haven it would indeed seem to prejudice Henry's pieces, but he had already said that he would not do so; he had cause to complain of others' ministers, for if his had acted like Lord Gray they had been at war again. As for Du Bies he had named another in the commission. To the other points the French king made no answer, save for the ships of war, saying that probably they were Scottish pirates who molested Henry's subjects, as they did the French and Flemings; his merchants should go and traffic as they intended, trusting to Henry's promise. Wotton replied that it was evident that the fortifying at Habletune and Bullingebergh was not done to put the French fort in danger, whereas that of Portet could not but prejudice Henry's pieces; examination would show whether it was begun before the treaty. "It shall so indeed," quoth the King, and he added that the examination would also show that the building at Portet was for the better revictualling of his fort, and it was unreasonable that his good brother should fortify at will, break down his buildings and suspect his ministers, and he not do the like; to suffer this would make him rather like a subject than a friend. Wotton answered that Henry's fortifications were not so much where he listed as where he might by the treaty m[ake] them; that Lord Gray did, without commandment, what he thought the treaty warranted; that if Francis showed any reasonable cause of suspicion of Henry's ministers it should be duly weighed; and that Henry only wished things to pass according to the treaty and good amity. The French king agreed that this was indeed the best means to maintain amity, and asked Wotton to write that he would not fail therein.
The French king then seemed better disposed than hitherto to talk with Wotton, and said that, by letters of the 16th, the Emperor was again on this side the Danow, had taken certain towns on the river, and seemed to be drawing towards Wirtenberg, where the Duke had gathered 16,000 footmen and 2,000 horsemen to garrison his frontier until the coming of the great army of the Protestants; the Emperor seemed to avoid battle and would not fight except at advantage: the Protestants had also passed the Danow and were near him, but would not fight at this time. The Emperor will either try to take the towns of the duchy of Wirtenbergh and winter his men in that plentiful country, or else pass through it by Brisgow, Elzate (sic), Lorayne and Luxenburgh into Flanders, leaving his men lodged at Spyre, Wormes, Mentz, Tryer and other towns obedient to him: the ground of Wirtenbergh was so flat that three days' rain such as we have had here would make it impossible for the Emperor to move his great ordnance, and although stronger in horsemen he was inferior to the Protestants by 25,000 footmen. Wotton observed that unless the battle was fought and the matter ended now, he doubted if the Protestants could make such an army next year, whereas the Emperor had the Bishop of Rome and the princes of Italy to bear most of his charges. The King answered that no princes contributed, and the Bishop had not helped so liberally as the Emperor looked for, who was fain to lend the Legate 25,000 ducats to pay his men; the Protestants were gathering a diet to move those princes and towns of the religion who are not of the League to enter it, as the Kings of Denmark and Suede, the count Palatyn, the marquis of Brandenburgh, the town of Norinbergh, etc.; he heard also that they would send shortly to him and to England for aid, and if so he would use Henry's advice therein. Asked whether anyone had offered mediation. The French king said that the King of Pole had done so, but the Emperor said that agreement was impossible; the king of Pole had declared that if Saxony were invaded he would aid the Duke, and so said Duke Moryce also, because his lordships lay so mingled with those of the Elector. The French king said also that Gerard, the Emperor's secretary, had no pleasant answer from the Turk, who, perceiving this business betwixt the Emperor and the Germans, would "be doing again in Christendom next summer."

26 Oct. 310. Wotton to Paget.
R. O. Laubespine shows him that, by letters of the 14th, the Emperor has passed the Danow again, taken all the towns betwixt Ingolstadt and Ulme, viz., Thunewerd, Hoestet and Tilling'n, and goes to besiege Ulme, "where he thinketh to have some intelligence." His men overthrew five ensigns of Protestants going to Ulme; and it was a hundred to one that they had taken those who carried 3,000,000 gold gildens to the Protestants' camp, but succour came in time and the Protestants are now paid their wages. The Duke of Wirtenbergh has gathered 16,000 footmen and 2,000 horsemen. The Emperor now "marcheth in open fields." As soon as Wirtenbergh's men join the great army the Protestants will fight, even at disadvantage.
Had written thus far when, on the 24th, he obtained audience of the French king, who told him other news which he has written to the King. Sent his last despatch into England by his servant Hugh Good, whose horse fell half a dozen posts on this side Parys and hurt his leg; whereupon he took fever and died. He was, "for his wit, learning, knowledge, experience, languages, soberness, faithfulness, and diligence," able to have served the best man in the realm. Cannot as yet answer Paget's other letters. The French king has been at Bar in Barrois with the duchess of Lorayne and her sister-in-law the princess of Aurenge, dowagers both. The King goes back to Jenville for Allhallow Tide. The fame continues of the marriage of the dowager of Lorayne and Count Daumale. Tannay by Bar, 26 Oct. 1546. Signed.

27 Oct. 313. Mont to Thirlby.
R. O. The letters which he now sends were brought to him in a roundabout way, and, as it was impossible to hire a messenger, he was bringing them himself, when the lameness of his horse compelled him to go back. Suspects that owing to the present war Thirlby finds it not so easy to obtain answers from the Emperor; and therefore, if anything is to be signified to the writer, it may be sent through Sebald Geuder, dwelling in the haymarket at Nurnberg. Gundelfinger might very well do this work if he were at Nurnberg. Conjectures that the King wrote to the Emperor for release of the wood for making bows which was arrested at Mentz by two citizens of Nurnberg upon pretext of a licence from the Emperor and king of Romans for the sole export to England of this kind of wood. Such wood was lately purchased in Switzerland by certain English merchants, and was arrested in its passage down the Rhine; and thereupon, last month, Mont went to the abp. of Mentz, but could only get answer that he must either compound with the adverse party or pursue the case at law. A letter from the Emperor to the Bishop will therefore be necessary, and he begs Thirlby to send him one, for the wood belongs to an honest Englishman called Richard Hillis who received Mr. Bucler and Mr. Mason in his house in Strasburg. Intends to wait two days at Weyssenburg for his boy, and then return to Nurnberg, for the plague is raging hereabouts. Begs him to send the boy back as soon as possible. For the advowson formerly granted and the gift lately given, professes devotion to Thirlby's service. "Y wolde veray feyn heb komme to yower lordship, but y stand in doubt if it sholl bie best, for divers considerations. If yowr lordship heb no spedier and surer weys for conveants af letters y theng y moyght sendt them sauffely throug Colln and Antwerp." Dated in a village near Manheym, two miles from Daunenwerd, 27 Oct. 1546.
P.S.—Intended to send his servant on foot, fearing the rapacity of the Spaniards and his servant's simplicity, and therefore thought his speedy return the more necessary, because of the care of the horses; but this rain has made a horse necessary, and his return is not so urgent but that he may wait, if Thirlby has any hope of getting the letters to Mentz within five or six days; for, to gratify Thirlby, Mont will readily act horsekeeper for a few days. Written one mile from Dunowerda, for so far he has accompanied his servant.

27 Oct. 314. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
R. O. Since the 9th inst. this Signory has had no letters from the Imperial camp, but, by "reports accusing letters of the 18th from the said camp," the Emperor's going to Ulmo was prevented by the Langrave's taking an important hill adjoining the town. Some say that this was occupied peaceably; others that it was only had with great contention and loss. As signified in his last, Piero Stroci came hither from the Protestants' camp in great diligence; and now the prior of Capua and he depart for France. Here also has been the count of Mirandola. The coming of these personages and of the new French ambassador suggests new practices between the French king, the Protestants and this Signory, which seems inclined to the Protestant part. "I understand that in Bononye is kept of late greater watch and guard than was accustomed, unknown upon what suspicion it should proceed. The captain of whom I wrote sometime to your Majesty is departing for France." Venice, 27 Oct. 1546.

28 Oct. 315. Selve to Francis I.
No. 47.
Upon Francis' letters of the 10th and 13th, went to the King; who, however, because of some indisposition, commissioned Paget to hear him. Paget afterwards told him that the King was much pleased and had deputed Seymour, Hertford's brother, the Deputy of Calais and Mr. Wotton, brother of the ambassador with Francis, to meet the French deputies. The armed ships are still at the mouth of this river, and Paget says that bad weather and contrary wind has prevented their going to Scotland; but their departure seems to have cooled, as now they are scarcely mentioned. This King has secretly delivered 100,000 cr. to merchants here to be paid at Antwerp at Candlemas, constraining the merchants to take it in the new crowns which are not current there at the amount they are worth here, so that the merchants bear the carriage and exchange and the thing is done covertly. Some think this is to encourage the Germans not to accept or offer appointment with the Emperor after their great expenses in this war. Reingrave, brother of him who was in Francis' service, has taken oath to this King and obtained a pension of 2,000 cr. Learns from the Venetian secretary resident here that the Germans have sent hither the capitulation last made by the Emperor with the Pope (boasting that they have obtained the original), by which this King's Council understand that the Emperor has bound himself generally to the reduction of those who disobey the Holy See; and those here are much offended. However, I see more demonstration of good cheer made to the Emperor's ambassador than was usual when I first came; I know not whether it proceeds from affection or dissimulation. London, 28 Oct. 1546.
28 Oct. 316. Selve to the Admiral [of France].
No. 48.
Seeing the Baron de St. Blancard, who is very ill, retained prisoner and an attempt made to extort from him 4,000 cr. down and bond for the other 3,000 cr., Selve wrote to Paget (copy enclosed); who replied by one of his clerks that the King orders Paston to exact only 2,000 cr. and let the Baron give surety for 5,000 cr., to be paid only if the special Commissioners find him good prize. On Selve remarking that thus the Baron should pay 2,000 cr. even if not found prisoner, the clerk said that the 2000 cr. comprised 800 cr. for expenses and loans, and promised to point out to Paget the enormity of the sum demanded. Gathers from the language which the King and Paget have always held that they will not let the Baron go unless they have surety for the 7,000 cr., and a good part of it in ready money; and if matters are arranged between the Commissioners to their liking they will treat him worse than ever if he still remain in their hands, of which he is in very great fear.

Confession concerning the taking of the Galley Blauncherd, headed: Admiralty, 38 Hen. VIII.
Confession taken of 23 of the "crediblest forsathos" (named, Neapolitans, Spaniards and Gascons), 29 Oct., in presence of Sir Thomas Clere, lieutenant, Robert Legg, treasurer, William Brocke, comptroller, Benjamin Gonsson, surveyor and Richard Brocke, captain of the King's Gallye Subtill. Their galleys lying under the French fortules descrying four or five of the King's navy making towards them, their Admiral Pullyne sent his "fregat" from galley to galley appointing six of the best galleys to take the wind of the ships, and the other galleys to be ready, every man naked with his oar in his hand, for the assault. The Baron Blauncherd said that he would have the greatest of the ships for his part. In case of failure Captain Pulltyn was to fire a warning shot, whereupon all should retire. The galleys made chase as far as Blacknashe, shooting continually, and there the ships cast about towards them with the rest of the navy. The Admiral shot his warning pieces and all fled. "Then the Baron Blauncherd saying that he would bestow half a dozen shot among them for his pleasure, whereupon captain Pero was displeased, saying it was necessary to follow the Admiral, and so fell on the danger of the ships and was taken," 21 May last. Captain Pullyn shot the first piece at the ships that day. Signed: Thomas Clere, k: Robert Legge; William Brouke; Benjamin Conson; Rye. Broke.

R. O. Because you have no leisure I will be short. "If I were with you ye would teach me another school! God save me from all your school if it be no better than that." For God's love, help as you may. Your proclamation for burning books wrought much hurt, for in many places they have "burnt New Testaments, Bibles not condemned by the Proclamation, and that out of parish churches and honest meaning men's houses. They have burnt of the King's Majesty's books concerning our religion lately set forth, and his primers which now be utterly despised and not used nor taught the youth, contrary to his most godly meaning and commandment. They teach the old Latin with the old ignorance, and would that printers should print them again, and promise them good utterance. The Proclamation meant well for the abolishing of ill books; but the success is eradicare lolium cum tritico. Some that knew what was to be done, yet, for fear of danger, made away all. Other that stood in a mamering, circumferebantur omni vento tentationis and cast away all, good and bad. The third, which had none to cast away, rejoiced much that they might remain still in their old ignorancy and superstitious folly. God of all comfort grant all such as mind devoutly and godly ever to have comfort of His Blessed Word; and, for all your business, bless yourself with it once a day."
The King determined that the civilians in Oxford shall be together in one college, the physicians and surgeons in another; but the head[s] of the University are come to sue the contrary, with letters to the Queen, Lord Chancellor, Great Master, Privy Seal, and you. "I fear the suit be to little purpose and not gracious. I think they might do well to sue for some endowment for the University, which is poor and miserable, and hath scant 5l. by the year, whereas Cambridge hath yearly 40l. or 50l." They have also to thank the King for the continuance of their houses with their lands, and to desire his confirmation thereof. Hatfilde, 29 Oct.

29 Oct. 322. Lord Grey to Paget.
R. O. Understands that report is made to Paget that bearer, Pierre Jehan Lucy de Sena, Italian, has not been here these two months, but in Flanders and elsewhere. Undoubtedly he has continued here ever since his return out of Scotland, "and hath not been absent at any time without licence for a season to repair to the Court"; and he is full paid up to 27 Aug. last at 16 cr. the month. Bulloigne, 29 Oct. 1546. Signed.

R. O. 2. Petition to Paget by Peter John Luty of Scena, Italian, who has learnt from Nic. Rustici, in answer to a former demand, that he must bring testimonial from Lord Grey of his having been always retained in Bolleyn since his return from Scotland. Thought that this had been certified in last letters which he brought, but has now brought another letter from my Lord Deputy. A little before coming from Bolleyn he was paid, by the King's command, up to 27 Aug. last, when the payments of the old treasurer ended, "and they abide the coming of the new treasurer to pay the residue." Doubts that some malicious person has spoken evil of him. "And as concerning the 10 payments which I ask to be allowed me in Bolleyn at such time as I served in Scotlande is one only wages and not two, because I served in Scotlande with three horses of service, as is well known, and I never received more wages than 16 crowns the month, which was but the half wages which was due to me, as is apparent in the book of wages, for so much I had before and now have in Bolleyn of his Majesty without keeping of horse, and therefore it pleased the King's Highness to will the late Sir Harry Knevet to write to Bolleyn that I should be paid; which as yet I could not get, as my lord of Surrey and other of his Majesty's Council in Bolleyn Mill testify. I am indebted the same and more made in Scotlande only for my . . . . . . . . . . for [any] other thing; supposing that, according as was promised me, my said wages of Bolleyn should have been allowed me as reason was." Begs that he may receive here four months' wages beforehand besides what is due to him since 27 Aug., that he may partly satisfy his creditors and return to serve in Bollevn.

20 Oct. 323. Du Bies to Lord Grey.
R. O. Last night I received your letter of the 26th inst. And as to your writing that I am reported to think you are not authorised to speak generally of the limits, I have never doubted it, and know your power to be sufficient; but as I have so often written, it must be reformed in accordance with the treaty. This I think you will leave to those whom your King has lately told Mons. de la Garde that he would appoint; to meet whom the King has deputed Mons. de Tais, the said Sieur de la Garde and one other, as I have signified to Lord Cobham, who is, I understand, to be one. 29 Oct. 1546.

Shrewsb. MS.
P., p. 119.
At his coming to London, Mr. Candishe sent for him to know what money Shrewsbury had sent, having received great rebukes of the Council because it should have been paid before Michaelmas. Promised 200l. within four days after Halontyd. Encloses abstract of their books showing his debt. On Wednesday night had communication with lord Breye, who promises "to be with you to see my lady his wife afore Kyrstellmes although he tarried but two days with her." Mr. More has provided 200 lings, the one hundred at 14l. and the other at 9l., which he would rather send to Hull by water than by land. Cannot get a tun of good wine. This day I despatched "Bryan, Mrs. Preste man." Parliament shall begin next January. London, 30 Oct.

31 Oct. 327. Vaughan to Wriothesley and Paget.
R. O. On the last of October, about 2 p.m., I arrived at Calles and asked Mr. Fowler concerning the acquittance and reward. He answered that copies of the acquittances were in his house in England, and he left by indenture with you, my lord Chancellor, 4 or 5 years past, acquittances made for the King's pension of France "supposed and looked to have been paid and were not;" also that the reward given was sometimes 300 cr. sometimes 400 cr., when the yearly pension was but 50,000 cr. He says that "at the receipt of the pension the commissaries had always by them a goldsmith which suspecting any piece of gold touch it only." Please let me know exactly how many crowns of the sun to receive, the remembrance of you, my lord Chancellor, containing 46,700 "and odd." I have sent to Bullen to enquire whether the party bringing this money is come. In case you, my lord Chancellor, cannot find the acquittances delivered by indenture, I send Mr. Fowler over, so that you may have their copies. Calles, 31 Oct.
"Fowler told me that the goldsmith used to weigh a mark's weight of the crowns of every bag that was brought, which weight and touch they used, and none other things."

31 Oct. 328. Sir Thomas Moyle to Paget.
R. O. After divers answers received from Mons. du Bies, on 29 Oct. I learned from my lord Graye that Du Bies will nowise assent to any more meeting upon our first commission, alleging (as I also hear) that a new commission is appointed. Please advertise me what I shall do. Mr. Wotton and I this week viewed the water which the French call Lyenne and would have as head of the river, it being declared to the King, as Sir Thomas Palmer showed us, to be in winter the greatest and longest. That water has two heads, one at Longvile called "le leawe Saint Silves[tre], th'other at Nabringheme called le lewe Saint Margaret," the two meeting within a quarter of a mile of the said heads and running through the bridge at Henvois, through a hamlet called Fosse (taking there the name of the hamlet) and so unto the great river where the water that comes from Seles runs, in the end of Burnavile parish; and then all the waters meeting in the hamlet of Lyenne are called Lyenne "and not before." The water of Fosse is not a mile long and is but a dyke, not able now to float a wooden dish, whereas the other is a fair river before it comes to Lyenne, "and of three miles long." Hearing of this new commission we forbore to pursue the other. Guisnes, 31 Oct. Signed.

This is not meant to comprehend ambassadors of the Pope, Emperor, kings of England and Portugal, Signory of Venice and other foreign kings, potentates and princes; but they must not retain any of the said solicitors, etc. Given at Genville, 31 Oct. 1546, and 32 Francis I.

R. O. Commission to Sir George Brooke lord Cobham, deputy of Calais, Sir Thomas Seymer, of the Privy Chamber, and Sir Edward Wotton treasurer of Calais, to agree with the commissioners of Francis I. as to what places in the county of Boulogne may be fortified without offence of the treaty of peace lately made, the validity of the prize of a certain galley of the baron of St. Blanquard, the true source of the river flowing beneath the bridge called Pont Debricque and the frontier line from thence to Guisnez.

2. Draft treaty by Sir George Brooke, lord Cobham, Henry VIII's deputy of Calais, Sir Thomas Seymour, gentleman of the Privy Chamber, and Sir Edward Wootton, treasurer of Calais, with A.B.C., commissioners of the French king.
That, whereas by the treaty of perpetual peace latety concluded at Camp, from the date of that treaty until Michaelmas 1554, neither Prince shall begin any new fortification in the county of Boulogne, and questions have arisen as to whether the fortifications at Mont Saincte Estien, or at the little town called Le Portet, or at the hill near the entrance of the port of Boulogne, were begun at the time of the treaty, which the French affirm and the English deny, to remove all occasion of doubt and that the peace may last for many ages, it is hereby concluded that the French king may fortify Mont Saincte Estien and the King of England Le Bullenbergh, Blackenes and the New Port alias Hambletew. Le Portet and the hill beside the entrance of the port of Boulogne shall remain as they are.
Item, in elucidation of the 12th article of the treaty, it is declared that the source of the river which flows beneath the Pont de Bricque is the stream which enters that river beside the town of Kekes.
