June 1534, 26–30

26 June. 879. Archbishop Lee to Henry VIII.
R. O. By your letters, which came to hand June 18, you allege that the prebend of Wetwang, heretofore united to the college in Oxford lately called Cardinal's College, is now, by attainder of the Cardinal and dissolution of the college, in your gift. You therefore command me and my brethren the dean and chapter to allow the impropriation of the said prebend anew to your college, now named King Henry VIII.'s College. In the absence of the treasurer of York, now in the South country, and Mr. Franklin in Scotland, and as my brother dean is the only one in residence, I cannot make perfect answer; however, had a pleased to recompense him. Thorpe, 26 June 1534. Signed.
P. 1. Add.
26 June. 880. The Same to Cromwell.
R. O. On the same subject. Begs him to intercede for the dean of St. Stephens. Believes his title is good, for he gave it him by good advice.
Recommends that other letters may be sent, making no mention of commandment, for as consent is required, consent must be free. Complains also that words of command are used to him in letters from the King for such prebends as are void by promotion of any of the King's chaplains, although not, he believes, in similar letters to the others. Thorpe, 26 June 1534. Signed.
Pp. 2. Add. Endd.
26 June. 881. The Same to Cromwell.
R. O. As I knew not when this bearer would return to you by whom the King commanded us to make answer, I therefore, on your letters sent by Dr. Oliver's servant, have sent you both my own answer and my brother the Dean's to the King's letters, such as we can make for the time, by the said servant of Dr. Oliver. Thorpe, 26 June 1534. Signed.
P. 1. Add. Endd.
26 June. 882. Duke of Suffolk to Cromwell.
R. O. I have written to my lord abbot of Westminster that the bearer my servant may be his farmer of Bynholm, Worcestershire, after expiration of the lease of Thos. Nevell. I beg you to favor his suit. Henham, 26 June. Signed.
P. 1. Add.: Secretary. Endd.
26 June. 883. Sir George Lawson to Cromwell.
R. O. I beg you to remember the 100l. that lord Dacres owes me, which without your help I have little hope of recovering. George Douglas's servant is waiting here for money. The abbot of St. Mary's sends you by the bearer his nephew 4,522l. 4s. 2d. I pray you write to John Constable in favor of a poor widow, whom a kinsman of mine, servant to my lord of St. Mary's, is to marry; also to admit the bearer, my lord's nephew, as your chaplain. York, 26 June.
Remember my good brother, Rob. Lorde. My lord has another nephew at Cambridge, a goodly young man, who has a benefice. My lord and I pray you to accept him as your scholar.
Hol., pp. 2. Add.: To my right honorable master Cromwell, secretary to the King's highness. Endd.
26 June. 884. John Lord Mordaunt to Cromwell.
R. O. I am advertised that the King intends to go to Calais. I beg you will get me discharged according to the suit I made when I was last with you, as I have been of late so sore charged both for myself and my son, and I am in great debt to the King. Of late I have been troubled with sickness. I shall be at London the 3 July if I can ride. 26 June.
Remember my kinsman Nich. Hardynge.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Secretary. Endd.
885. John Lord Mordaunt to Cromwell.
Vesp. F. XIII. 158. B. M. I pray you to be good to me in my suit to the King for my debt to him. The days appointed in this bill shall be duly kept, or else that by your mediation the King will take my lands in Northumberland at 20 years' purchase, which I will warrant to be worth 157l. (fn. 1) over all yearly charges. I doubt not the King can exchange them for others with the earl of Northumberland. But I beg you to get me the days appointed in my bill, that I may keep my land.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Thos. Cromwell, esq., secretary to the King's grace. Endd.
26 June. 886. William Brabazon and John Ap Rice to Cromwell.
R. O. Have set the goods of Lord Dacre and Sir Chr. Dacre in stay for a certain space, and have sold all the sheep in Cumberland and Westmoreland, as the bearer, Sir Thos. Wharton, can show. Sir Chr. Dacre was said to be rich in ready money, but we can get no knowledge of his books. Suppose he knew himself guilty of the acts whereof he is indicted before he came to London. Carlisle, 26 June. Signed.
P. 1. Add.: Master Secretary to the King's grace. Endd.
26 June. 887. Robert Fouler to Cromwell.
R. O. By the King's commandment I retained in my hands from the money received before Easter for his pensions of France due in November last 2,000l., to be delivered from time to time to his surveyor here for the fortifications of Calais and Guisnes. I have delivered to the surveyor up to this time 1,760l., so that there only remains 240l., which will not suffice for this month ensuing. As to the pensions due in May last, I hear nothing of their coming. Calais, 26 June.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Secretary. Endd.
26 June. 888. Sir Edward Ryngeley to Lord Lisle.
R. O. Wrote in my last letter that the saying was in London that the day was appointed for the King's being at Calais, but it is not so far forth yet. Sends the King's “geise,” The ambassador of the Lubecks will be here on Sunday, and so will all the Council and the gentlemen dwelling about London. There is no other news but that the King and Queen are merry. Desires to be recommended to lady Lisle and the Council. Hampton Court, 26 June.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Deputy of Calais. Endd.
26 June. 889. Sir Ric. Bulkeley to Henry Norres.
R. O. His backfriends Edward Gruffith and Dr. Glyn have made means to Mr. Secretary to be in displeasure with him, all for envy. Has received Norres' letters commanding him to take charge of the castle and view the artillery, and see the prisoners safely kept, which he has done, although lady Velavill, late wife to Sir Roland, and her son-in-law Wm. Ap Robert, who was with you lately in London, refused to deliver it up. Had to obtain a writ of subp$oena to the said dame “Annes” and her son-in-law before they would do so. Never saw a house so ill kept, for there is scarcely one chamber in which a man may lie dry. Dame Agnes claims part of the artillery, which she has no right to, for Sir Rowland, as you know, murdered a man in my lord Cardinal's time and forfeited all his goods. After which he sued to be at his fine with the King, and swore he was worth 500 mks, in goods besides 100 mks. worth of artillery, which he acknowledged to be the King's. Beaumaris, 26 June. Signed.
P. 1, long sheet. Add.: To, &c. Henry Norres, esquire for the Body, chief of the King's Privy Chamber, high chamberlain of North Wales, and constable of the King's castle of Beaumaris.
27 June. 890. Sir John Porte to Cromwell.
R. O. At this my being at Oxford, according to your letter sent to me, I have had communication with the commissary, certain doctors of the university and the corporation. With some difficulty they have come to an agreement as to the commissary's jurisdiction touching the lease of a house made by a beadle of the university, who is a freeman of the town. By this occasion a beadle was hurt in a fray. The parties are content to refer the affair to Mr. Stonor and Mr. Barantyne. I explained your pleasure to them touching the watch, according to the statute of Winchester. The commissary said he could not be “applyable” that the town should keep watch without Convocation, which they will hold today. Saturday, 27 July. (fn. 2) Signed.

R. O. Rob. Aclonde, the bearer, a servant of mine, is wrongfully troubled in the Exchequer, for seizing to the King's use certain malt and salt from one Henry Clerke of Southampton who had not paid the customs.

Gives details of the trial, which went against Aclonde, where the chief baron desired that Huttoft and Mills of the said town should make a friendly end between Clerke and Aclonde.

R. O. It is thought here that not only the goods but the lands of lord Dacres and Sir Christopher will be forfeited by their indictment.

29 June. 900. Hieronymus Lopis to Starkey.
Harl, MS. 6,980, f. 43. B. M. Starkey's letter was very pleasant to him, but he asks him to write longer letters. Living as he does in Padua, among learned men who are daily discussing various topics, he might send him an account of what they are studying and publishing, and what, for instance, Peter Bembo is doing. Even if there is no news at Padua, Venice, to which he is so near, must supply him with plenty of material for writing. Would gladly hear about the studies of Starkey and his patron (Pole), and of the health of the latter, and of the qualities of the air at Padua, which would be interesting to a physician. We are troubled here with a suspicion of the plague. Fears it may deprive him of a Greek teacher, whom chance put in his way, who has also been very useful to Starkey's friend Marco Fortia. Desires to be commended to Reginald Pole. Avignon, 3 kal. Julii.
Hol., Lat., pp. 2. Add.: Dño T. Starkeio, Anglo. Patavii. In ædibus ill. dñi Reginaldi Poli.
ii. Starkey to Lopis.
Received the above letter at Padua, 14 kal. Aug. Pole is well. Considers the elimate of Padua healthy and like England, with little variation of temperature. Pole is engaged in theology, Starkey in civil law. There has been a discussion among the doctors here concerning letting blood in pleurisy. While they are disputing in the schools, the poor patients perish. The little boy, whom Lopis has often seen here, has died from the ***ng of a scorpion, in consequence, as Starkey thinks, of the unskilfulness of the doctors, who took from him too much blood. Matthew Curtius is reading Galen in Greek. Peter Bembo is writing a history of Venice. Padus, 5 kal. Aug.
Francis Curtius is dead, to the grief of those who follow the doctrine of Bartholus.
Pp. 3. Lat., hol. Draft. On the same sheet as the preceding.
901. [Starkey] to a Lady.
R. O. Though I have often blamed nature for not making windows in front of men's hearts, I complain now more than ever, being in a strange country where I cannot find words to express what my poor heart thinks. I am encouraged, however, to open my mouth by your great humanity, believing that you will not regard the rudeness of my words but the affection of my heart. Since the first day, Madam, that I beheld your singular beauty, and experienced your great virtues, I have felt such an affection towards you that my heart has never since been at liberty, and seems more in your keeping than my own; it has left my body quite deserted and miserable. How entirely it is devoted to your service I will explain when it shall please your good grace to let me speak with you. Begs her to read over again the letters written to her, because she is the lady to whom he is most subject.
French, p. 1. In Starkey's hand.
30 June. 902. Sir Simon Harecourt to Cromwell.
R. O. On St. Peter's day last the bailly of Bampton told me that one Will. Saunders of Bampton, shoemaker, and John Hill, of Eynsham, spake ill of the King as they were drinking together, and he desired me, as justice of the peace, to call the parties before me. As I have no commission to examine treason, I have sent him to you, with the names of his witnesses. I have committed one of the offenders to the castle at Oxford, and will commit the other as soon as I get him. Staunton Harcourt, 30 June. Signed.
P. 1. Add.: Chief Secretary. Endd.
30 June. 903. W. Tresham to Sir Wm. Fitzwilliam.
R. O. The Mayor and I when last before the Council were commanded by my lord Chancellor and Mr. Secretary that neither I should meddle with any townsman nor the Mayor with any privileged person of the University.
Nevertheless this 30th June the Mayor sent his serjeant to Jas. Collynson, one of our bedells, to compel him to appear before the Mayor in a civil cause. The sergeant tore the bedell's clothes to bring him to the Mayor, but could not prevail. The same day the Mayor commanded three townsmen of St. Mary's in Oxford to break up a house which the said bedell had the power to let as warden in a brotherhood in St. Mary's Church, and the said three townsmen, finding that Collyson had nailed up the doors, came to ask me whether I would assist the said bedell or no. I desired them to defer the matter till next day till the Mayor and I should speak together, when word came that a townsman called Wayth had wounded the said bedell severely, and the bedell him. The bedell's life is in danger. The Mayor has also taken from the wardens of the said fraternity certain evidences and 14l. in money. I beg you to move the King or my lord Chancellor for remedy. Oxford, 30 June.
Hol., pp. 2. Add. as Treasurer of the King's household.
30 June. 904. H. Duke of Richmond to Cromwell.
R. O. Recommend me to the King. And whereas I am informed he is purposed shortly to take his journey into France, I should have been very glad to have attended him, as my friend Mr. Knevyd can inform you. Canford, 30 June.
Hol., p. 1. Add.: Secretary. Endd.
30 June. 905. Stephen Bishop of Winchester to [the D. of Richmond].
R. O. Master Coke (fn. 7) has delivered to me your Grace's letter in his favor reciting his grievances against me. His complaint to you was utterly untrue. Last year when I went beyond sea I ordered my officer to stay payment of master Cooke's fee; “but it was so stayed that master Cooke was paid (i.e., satisfied ?) and I forgave master Cooke, when he wept for kindness.” He has spoken of me in such terms to the King, your Grace, my lord Chancellor and Mr. Secretary as if he expected I should never be heard in answer; and now he is grieved that by Mr. Secretary's means I am to be heard. If you do not find my assertion true let me never be trusted again. I am only desirous your Grace should understand by this Cooke's character, “and the better perceive him in the use of his office of the Admiralty under your Grace.” I bear no malice against Cooke, but regret his folly. I have never done him any injury. “I never interrupted him in the office of my registership, but have hitherto always and yet do suffer him to occupy it that hath hired it of him for 10l. a year, of whom he is truly paid.” I only said I would stay payment of this fee till I knew the King's pleasure on account of a fault I found with him, &c. Winchester, 30 June.

R. O. Commission to examine the charges against the abbess of Wherwell, who has already been several times before the Council and depositions thereupon delivered to the ordinary, but as yet nothing is done.
Pp. 2, broad sheet.
R. O. 2. Interrogatories to be demanded of the abbess of Wherwell, viz.:—
1. Whether she was not too familiar with the bishop of London when she was a nun, “and that the bishop of London was forbid the monastery of Wherwell and her company by late bishop Fox, then being bishop of Winchester, for the avoiding of the said suspicion.” 2. Whether the Abbess since she had a child came from her monastery to Fullam to be merry with the Bishop. 3. Whether she was not lodged in the Bishop's own chamber for love, and whether the Bishop did not cause her to do on his kirtle “to keep my lady warm, wherein she sat at supper.” 4. Whether the Bishop and the Abbess did not sit and talk together so long in the night that her ladies were asleep, “so that they might do what they list for them.” 5. Whether the Bishop laid to her charge that she was with child again, “and the Abbess made him feel and know a privy token whereby he knew she was not with child, and axe her what that token was.”

They boast that they are of the Pope's sect, and will serve him against the King, who with those who take his part is accursed. Whoever advised the King to send him home was far overseen. Much damage will be done unless the King sends his deputy with a good power.

917. [Sir] Antony Wyndesore to Lady Lisle.
R. O. As to my lord's matter, which the lord Chancellor and Mr. Cromwell have in hearing, one or two days have been appointed, and the counsel was in readiness, “and they took not.” Fears it will be driven off all this term. Serjeants will not tarry long in London after the term. When the King comes to Calais, as the voice goes that he will, there will be means made to lord Lisle either by money or otherwise, that Mr. Seymour will have his desire, unless lord Lisle will stick in his cause. Has communed divers times with Mr. Seymour, who says plainly that the lord Chancellor and Mr. Cromwell will end the matter, and he will abide by it howsoever it is. Lady Lisle's counsel are fully determined to obtain her possession if they can possibly induce the arbiters thereto. Reckons they will be glad to pay 140l. yearly rent, but this will not be a beneficial end for lord Lisle. It must also be considered that all my lord's leases and grants must take effect, and not be revoked during his life.
There is assize brought against lord Lisle for the land that Chaundeler has. Mr. Marven advises obtaining an injunction from the lord Chancellor to stop the assize, as he is in Calais and has no knowledge thereof, and his counsel know not his pleasure. If that will not serve, Mr. Marven will be at the assize and shift the matter as well as he can. Has paid lord Lisle's debt of 145l. to the merchant. Has 4l. 6s. 8d. left of Smyth's money, having paid the rest in costs to counsel in Michaelmas term.
Houlte asks for money for the livery, and showed a warrant for lord Lisle for 20l. Could not help him. Wishes to know lord Lisle's pleasure before Michaelmas. He was content to deliver the cloth at Wyndesore's request.

919. Edward Lyttelton to the Bishop of Chester.
R. O. We all, your special servants and lovers in Staffordshire, are looking daily to hear of your lordship's coming unto your own. Is very bold to write on behalf of a poor kinswoman. Margaret Bollsstered, who is now departed, was wife unto old Birmyncham, and leased the malt-mill and meadows which she had in Birmyncham to me for the term of her life at 20l. a year. But I allowed my cousin Elizabeth, wife to Edw. Birmyncham, to take the profits, which was all she had to depend upon, and now she is like to go a-begging. I beg your lordship to speak to Mr. Cromwell and Mr. Dawnse that I may have a renewal of the lease on the same terms for the sake of my poor kinswoman. Signed.

926. Dr. A. Paceus to [Henry VIII.]
Harl. MS. 6,989, f. 29. B. M. Offers to the King the oration which he made at Hampton Court on 3 kal. July. Although there are some in Germany who do not agree with Paceus in everything, as the chief part of the learned men are not fully informed about the King's cause, Paceus is ready to prove all that he has said or written in this speech, and what hereafter he may say or write, before the Emperor, all kings and princes of Christendom, the Council of the universal church, and the whole world, by the principles of the law of nature and of nations, by the sanctions of imperial law, by all written laws and by the Holy Scriptures. It is certain that the Catholic Church, in which Christ reigns by the word of his Father, which he rules by prophets, apostles and evangelists, will never disapprove the King's second marriage. As soon as he returns to Germany, will study that all good and wise men in the courts of the Emperor, of the electors and princes and in public colleges, whether they are doctors of human or divine law, may receive full information and subscribe this opinion of his. Not that the King wants their advice, but it is well to know that many good and learned men think alike in such an important matter.
Thinks his speech unworthy of being printed, and fears the French king would be offended by its publication. Would prefer it to be suppressed until the King has an answer from the people of Lubeck and Hamburg to the articles sent to them.
What he has said is true, and he will stick to it. The King can do as he likes with the speech and himself. Asks for leave for himself and Dr. H$aepinus to return home. Although they are inexperienced, their cities are much quieter when matters are conducted in their presence according to law than when, in their absence, every one rules as he likes.

“Clarissime Domine, cum a . . . . . oratoribus et nuntiis, qui . . . . . et ab illustri comiti Do[mino] . . . . . strenuoque et nobili viro . . . . . equiti aurato, doctor Adamus [Pacæus] et H[ans de] Gerstenberg cum literis et instructio[nibus ad] clementissimam regiam Majestatem, et ego a Bernhardo ad Magnificentiam demissi su[mus]. Cum autem noster orator, doctor Adamus . . . . . tus, etc., qui totius legationis causam et dispositionem de regno Schweciæ, Finla . . . . . quibusque modis bello aggrediundum esset:”— First, how this can be done consistently with honor and right. Secondly, by means of what lords, viz., count Eric de Hoya, “Bernhardum equitem, senatorem regni, Schwantbe Stuer, regni Sueci$ae herilis filium,” the bishops of Lincopen and Scharaw and Hans de Gerstenberg. All these are driven into exile, propter tyrannidem, and would risk anything for the King's assistance in their enterprise. Thirdly, the forces and expense necessary. Fourthly, the advantage to be derived by the King. All these points are contained in Dr. Adam's commission, and we leave them to be more fully explained to the King's ambassadors who were at Hamburg with count Eric and Bernhard a Mela. If the King can assist us we desire to be sent back with letters to our masters in Germany, one of whom will perhaps go to the King, or else they will send some learned man to consult with him.
