599. Henry Gee Mayor of Chester, to Cromwell.
Has received his letter dated Greenwich, 14 May, desiring the entries of all the ships, &c. coming to Chester, and to assist Ric. Cooper in executing the late Act for making tanned leather. (fn. 1) The Act has not yet been sent to Chester, which is a county palatine ; and no such search has ever been made there, in consequence of its liberties, for which the inhabitants pay unto the prince at his first creation a mise of 3,000 marks, as they have lately done. Will communicate his letters to the aldermen. Have only petty customs, from shipping, which are devoted to the payment of the fee farm already mentioned, and keep no record of them. Sends up Hugh Aldersey, one of the aldermen, and Will. Glasiour, their counsel. Requests that their ancient liberties may be preserved. Chester, 6 June. Signed.

600. Francis I. to the Bailly Of Troyes.
Has received his letter of the 23rd. Desires him to tell Henry that he will follow his advice about informing the Germans of the proposed interview. In reference to the fear that the statute against matrimonial appeals to Rome would prevent the interview, considers, from what he hears from the cardinals Tournon and Grammont, that the interview is certain. It was, however, fixed to be held at Nice on July 15, but their letters of the 27th ult. say that the cardinals and physicians urge the Pope not to go to Nice in July on account of the heat, as, of 20 people who leave Rome then and fall ill, only three escape. The Pope was ready to adhere to the time fixed, but Francis has advised him to wait till the middle of August. Will spend the time at Mascon, Tournuz, and in the neighbourhood of Lyon. Has read the letters of the Bailly and Rostaing about the doings of the archbishop of Canterbury, and the intended coronation of the Queen at Whitsuntide. Lyons, 7 June 1533.

601. Coronation Of Anne Boleyn.
"The receiving, conveying, and coronation of the Queen."
In consequence of letters from the King to the mayor and commonalty of London, desiring them to make preparations for escorting queen Anne from Greenwich to the Tower, and to make pageants in the city on [Whit] Sunday next, the day of the coronation, the common council ordered the Haberdashers, to which craft Sir Steven Pecock, the mayor, belonged, to prepare barges decked with targets and banners.
On May 29 the mayor and his brethren assembled at St. Mary Hill at one o'clock, and embarked on board their barges, of which there were 50, with "shalmes, shagbushes," and other instruments on board. Before the mayor's barge was a "foiste for a wafter," full of ordnance. In the foiste was a great red dragon casting wild fire, and round about terrible monsters and wild men. Another foiste contained the Queen's device, a mount, with a white falcon crowned standing thereon, upon a "rowte" of gold, environed with red and white roses. Round the mount sat virgins singing and playing. On their arrival at Greenwich, the Queen entered her barge at three o'clock, and the whole company rowed up to the Tower. About her barge were the duke of Suffolk, the marquis of Dorset, the earls of Wiltshire, Derby, Arundel, Rutland, Worcester, Huntingdon, Sussex, Oxford, and others, and many bishops and noblemen, in their barges. On the way the ships lying on the shore shot divers peals of guns, and before she landed there was a marvellous shot out of the Tower. At her landing she was met by the Lord Chamberlain and officers of arms, and brought to the King at the postern by the water side. He kissed her, and she turned back and thanked the mayor and citizens, and then entered the Tower. None of the citizens landed but the mayor, recorder, and two aldermen. The rest "hoved before the Tower, making great melody." Friday, 29th, the following gentlemen, who were appointed to be knights of the Bath, served the King at dinner, and were bathed and shriven according to custom ; the next day they were dubbed :The marquis of Dorset, the earl of Derby, lords Clifford, Fitzwater, Hastings, Mountaigle, and Vaux, Sir Henry Parker, Sir Wm. Windesour, Sir John Mordaunt, Sir Francis Weston, Sir Thos. Arundell, Sir John Hudelston, Sir Thos. Poyninges, Sir Hen. Savell, Sir George Fitzwilliam, of Lincolnshire, Sir John Tyndall, Sir Thos. Jermey, [and one other, heir to lord Windsor. "President saith these six more, viz., Mr. Corbett, Mr. Wyndam, Mr. Barkeley, Mr. Verney, of Peuleye, John Germyne, and Robert Whytneye, of Gloucestershire ; but I think not." (fn. 2) ]
Saturday, 31st. The receiving and conveying of the Queen through London.
The streets from the Tower to Temple Bar were gravelled to prevent the horses slipping, and railed on one side. The crafts stood along one side of the streets from Graces Church to the little conduit in Chepe, and on the other side the constables in velvet and silk, with great staves in their hands. The streets were hanged with tapestry, cloth of gold, and other hangings, and the windows were filled with ladies and gentlewomen. The order of the Queen's train was as follows : 12 Frenchmen belonging to the French ambassador ; then gentlemen, esquires and knights, two and two ; judges, knights of the Bath, abbots, barons, bishops, earls, marquises, the Lord Chancellor, the archbishop of York, Venetian ambassador, archbishop of Canterbury, French ambassador, two esquires of honor with robes and caps of estate representing the dukes of Normandy and Aquitaine ; the mayor of London ; Garter ; Lord Wm. Howard, deputy to his brother the duke of Norfolk, with the Marshal's rod ; Chas. duke of Suffolk, for that day high constable of England, bearing the verge of silver ; and the Queen's chancellor. On both sides of the lords rode serjeants and officers of arms. The Queen was in an open litter of white cloth of gold, drawn by two palfreys in white damask. She wore a surcoat and mantle of white cloth of tissue, the latter furred with ermines. Her hair was hanging down, but on her head was a coif with a circlet of rich stones. A canopy was borne over her by four knights. After the Queen came lord Borough, her chamberlain ; Sir Wm. Coffyn, master of her horses, leading a spare horse, with a side saddle ; seven ladies in crimson velvet and cloth of gold ; a chariot containing the old duchess of Norfolk, and the old "Marquesse Dorset" ; other ladies and gentlewomen in chariots and on horseback, and lastly the Guard, in coats of goldsmith's work. Along the road there were many pageants, which are fully described, representing mythological and allegorical subjects. The Cross in Cheapside, and the conduits there and in Fleet Street, and Ludgate and Temple Bar, were newly repaired and painted. At the Cross, Master Baker, the recorder, made a speech, and presented her with 1,000 marks in the name of the city. The children of St. Paul's school were placed on a scaffold erected at the east end of St. Paul's, and repeated poetry in honor of the King and Queen. The litter was carried into Westminster Hall, when she alighted and took her place at the high dais under the cloth of estate. A service of spice and "suttilties," with ypocras and other wines, was offered to her, which she sent to her ladies. After thanking those who had attended on her she withdrew to her chamber in the White Hall, and afterwards went secretly in her barge to the King at his manor of Westminster.
Whitsunday, June 1. The mayor, aldermen, sheriffs, and councillors left the city for Westminster at 7 a.m. Between eight and nine the Queen came into the Hall, and stood under the cloth of estate ; and then the King's chapel and the monks of Westminster came in with rich copes, with many bishops and abbots. The Queen then went to the high altar of Westminster, accompanied by the aldermen, barons, dukes and earls, bishops, &c. The marquis of Dorset bore the sceptre ; the earl of Arundel, the rod of ivory and the dove ; and the earl of Oxford, high chamberlain, the crown. The duke of Suffolk, being high steward of England for that day, bare a long white rod, and lord Wm. Howard the rod of the marshalship. The Queen wore a surcoat and robe of purple velvet, furred with ermine, wearing her hair with a coif and circlet as on the Saturday. Four of the Cinque Ports bore the canopy over her. The bishops of London and Winchester bare up the laps of her robe, and her train was borne by the old duchess of Norfolk, many other ladies following. She rested awhile in a rich chair between the choir and high altar, and then proceeded to the altar, where the archbishop of Canterbury crowned her with the crown of St. Edward, which being heavy, was taken off again, and the crown made for her put on. After mass was performed, she received the Sacrament, and offered at St. Edward's shrine. The company returned to Westminster Hall in the same order, the Queen being supported by the earl of Wiltshire and lord Talbot, deputy for the earl of Shrewsbury.
The order and sitting at dinner :
The duke of Suffolk was high steward. Lord Wm. earl marshal, as deputy for his brother. The earl of Oxford, high chamberlain. The earl of Essex, carver. The earl of Sussex, sewer. The earl of Arundel, chief butler. The earl of Derby, cupbearer. Lord Lisle, panter. Lord of Burgayne, chief larder. Lord Bray, almoner. The mayor of Oxford kept the buttery bar. Thos. Wiat was chief sewer for his father, Sir Henry. The countess of Oxford, widow, and the Countess of Worcester, stood beside the Queen's chair, "which divers times in the dinner time did hold a fine cloth before the Queen's face when she list to spit or do otherwise at her pleasure." The archbishop of Canterbury sat on the Queen's right, and at her feet, under the table, two gentlewomen. The first course was brought in by the duke of Suffolk and Lord Wm. Howard, on horseback, the serjeants-of-arms, the sewer, and knights of the Bath. Account of the persons sitting at the different tables, and the number of dishes. The King and divers ambassadors looked on from a little closet out of the cloister of St. Stephen's. After dinner, wafers and ypocras were served ; and when the Queen had washed, the company meanwhile standing, the table was taken up, and the earl of Rutland brought up the surnape, which was drawn by Master Rede, marshal of the Hall. The earl of Sussex then brought a void of spice and confections, and the mayor of London a standing cup of gold, which she gave him after drinking therefrom. When she departed to her chamber, she gave the canopy to the barons of the Cinque Ports ; and then the mayor, and noblemen and gentlemen, departed, for it was six o'clock.
On Monday there were jousts at the tilt before the King's Gate. The mayor and his brethren had a goodly standing ; but there were few spears broken, as the horses would not couple.
On Wednesday the King sent for the mayor and his brethren to Westminster, and thanked them.
On the next leaf is a plan of the arrangement of the tables, with drawings of the Queen and archbishop of Canterbury at table, and the King looking on from the closet.

603. Sir Anthony Babyngton to Cromwell.
Reminds Cromwell that he asked him in behalf of his son John Babyngton, some time servant to my lord Cardinal, that he might be farmer of the prebend of Rampton, Notts. The prebend is now in possession of Mr. Westbe, (fn. 6) clerk of the Closets, who has promised the farm to Mich. Stanhop, and cannot recede. Mr. Westbe, however, might be got to exchange with Dr. Fox for the prebend of Osboldwyke in Yorkshire, giving a pension for the difference in value, till Fox gets other promotion, and then Fox could let it to his son ; or Westbe might get other promotion, and resign to a friend of Cromwell's, who would let it to his son. Will give Cromwell 100s. ; and if Cromwell can get the advowson, and present his uncle's son, Thos. Babyngton, a scholar in Trinity Hall, Cambridge, will give him 40l. Dethek in the Peak, 8 June.

This 8th day of June, at 9 a.m., received letters from Mons. de Beavois, with others in the same packet, from the Scotch king for Henry, sent herewith. About 60 broken men of Scotland did run at certain nags of the garrison in Norhamshire, but missed their purpose, and were pursued by the Borderers back into Scotland, where they took four of them prisoners, and 12 others, with 40 noote and 60 sheep. No other harm has been done on the Borders. The ships of Newcastle have taken two vessels freighted with Shotts men goods (Scotchmen's goods?). Warkworth, the day aforesaid. Signed.

You were so good as to have a privy seal sent in my behalf to John Lyngen the elder, to appear before you Octab. Trin. As he thinks that the privy seal refers only to his fine for not being knighted, he will appear ; and as nothing was done before Whitsuntide for taking the oaths to the King's succession by his commission, I shall be so much engaged in it that I shall not be able to be in London the first day of term to declare to you his abominable and beastly living, for the continuance whereof he and his naughty queans are accursed ; also his unreasonable demeanor towards my sister, his wife, and his children, who, but for their friends, would have been famished.

A printed book entitled "An expediat laicis legere Novi Testamenti libros lingua vernacula. Ad serenissimum Scoti Regem Jacobum V. Disputatio inter Alexandrum Alesium, Scotum, et Johannem Cochlum, Germanum. Anno Domini MDXXXIII."
Eight years ago two English apostates, who had learned German at Wittenberg, translated Luther's Testament into English, and had 3,000 copies printed at Cologne, of which Cochlus warned the King, and now warns James against Alesius' machinations. Refers to the evils caused in Germany by the reading of Luther's translation, and the errors contained therein. The archbishop of Treves caused the booksellers who sold them to be thrown into the Rhine with the books. Mentions a lady named Argula, who offered to discuss theology with the university of Ingoldstadt, and was banished with her husband by Wm. duke of Bavaria. If a new translation were made, the people would read for the purpose of deciding between the Papists and Lutherans, and the majority, being carnal, would decide that the latter better understood St. Paul.
The latter part of the book is in the form of a dialogue between Alesius and Cochlus.
Thinks Alesius is now concealed at Wittenberg, and that he will translate Luther's books, and send them to Scotland. Merchandise from Germany should be examined on its being landed. Ex Dresda Misni ad Albim, 6 idus Junii 1533.

609. John Lord Scrope to Henry VIII.
The abbot of St. Mary's still makes difficulties about granting him the reversion of the stewardship of his lands on the death of lord Conyers. Cromwell's letter to him was addressed on the back, "To the prior of St. Mary's abbey," and not abbot ; for which he "made danger" to receive it ; but at last broke it. After reading it, he said he had written to Cromwell that lord Conyers was steward ; that he would be loth to create more unkindness, and he asked Cromwell's advice what to do. This letter was but a repetition of the request ; but he would like it stated in Cromwell's letter that he acted by Cromwell's advice. Refers Cromwell to his uncle Sir Thos. Clyfforde. York, 9 June.

I send your obligation, sealed according to your letters. I request you to be good master to the dean and chapter of York for the money due to us of a prebend at Beverley. It has always been received by the residenciaries at York ; and Master Dalby, late provost of Beverley, accounted for it in two vacation times. The statutes of Beverley show that the provost has no claim to it. The chapter of York is called in the Exchequer for a disme granted to the King out of the church of Tikhill, which ought to be paid by the abbot and convent of Westminster. The church of York had never penny there this 200 years. Mr. Chaloner, our "feode" man, will resort to you on this subject. My lord Dean and I desire your acceptance of a fee of 40s. a year, enclosed, which should have been passed under our seal but for the Dean's absence. York, 9 June. Signed.

"The news that came last night with your Lordship's letter be marvellously mused on," but they are too high for me. "And as for pastime in the Queen's chamber was never more. If any of you that be now departed have any ladies that they thought favored you, and somewhat would mourn at parting of their servants, I can no whit perceive the same by their dancing and pastime they do use here." There is a hawk called a merlyon, that I think is not yet ready to fly at the larks in this country. Begs him to thank my lord of Norfolk for his token. Tell him my lord of Suffolk is loth to let fall a noble unless he took up a royal for it. "The matter doth partly appear in a letter by my Lady your wife's, or else by some others, I am sure, that hath advertised him by their letters."

614. The Bailly Of Troyes to John Du Bellay, Bishop Of Paris.
The king [of England] desires him to write to Du Bellay, what he also writes to the King and the Grand Master, that it has been declared in open Consistory at Rome, on the part of the king [of France], that he would use all his power to resist the Lutherans, and even attack them if necessary. This King is very illpleased, and says it is done to break his intelligence with the Germans, and to make the Pope and Emperor independent of them. He says that the French king has been badly counselled and badly served ; and that he has been too anxious for the interview, which the Pope ought to desire more than he. Replied that the interview was chiefly sought by the King on Henry's account, and there have been no practices, except about the marriage, of which he has long known. Has never seen him so angry, partly on account of the news from Rome, that the Pope is pushing his affair ; for though he has promised to do nothing of importance until the interview, that means that he will not give judgment ; but all will be prepared. If it goes against Henry, does not know whether he will find his people as obedient as he thinks. He does well to entertain the chief persons of the kingdom, so that the people will have no head to lead them. Things may not go so far as this, but you know the people of this country, "dont il n'est pas besoin que beaucoup ayent le pouvoir dont ils ont le voulloir."
The bearer, M. de Fleury, will tell him more. Encloses a letter from M. de Beauvois. Wishes to leave England, as he is never well for more than a week. Will have been here six months on the 22nd.
