Archbishop of Canterbury's Priviledge for James Diggs.

MEMORANDUM, That, where James Digges, one of the ordinary Gentlemen of my Lord's Grace of Cantorburie, was committed to The Fleet upon a Reddit se in the Exchequer, sithence the beginning of this present Parliament, the Lords, at the Motion of my Lord's Grace, claming the ancient Priviledge of this High Court, gave Commandment to the Gentleman Usher, that the said James Digges should be brought before them; and this Day the said Lords, having openly heard both Sir Roger Manwoode, then Lord Chief Baron, and other the Barons of the Exchequer, and the same James Digges;

They Ordered, That the said James Diggs, by virtue of the Priviledge of this Court, should be enlarged and set at Liberty.

And it is further Ordered, That the Warden of The Fleet should be discharged of the Prisoner, and of any Action that might be brought against the said Warden for the same.

Lastly, touching the Lord Chief Baron, the said Lords have Resolved, for such Causes and Reasons as they have heard, That the said Lord Chief Baron had not committed any Contempt against this Right Honourable Court.

And further added, xiii° die Decembris, That the Appearance of the said James Digges, by rendering himself in the Exchequer, was and should be a sufficient Discharge of his Sureties and their Bonds, and that the Bonds should be re-delivered.

Provided nevertheless, That, for as much as the said James Digges was not arrested in Execution at the Suit of Richard Howe, but was committed after Judgement, by the Barons of the Exchequer, upon a [Reddit se,] for Discharge of his Sureties;

It is therefore further Ordered, by the said Lords, That, touching the Sum of Money recovered by the said Howe, against the said James Digges, the said Howe and James Digges shall stand to such Order and Mitigation therein, as the said Lord Chief Baron, and other of the Barons of the Exchequer, shall set down and order for the same.


Dominus Cancellarius continuavit præsens Parliamentum usque in diem Jovis, hora consueta.
