Usher of the Black Rod and Serjeant at Arms.

BY Occasion of sending for the aforesaid Tolkerne, humble Request was made by Mr. Coningsby, the Gentleman Usher of the House, and signified by the Mouth of the Earl of Notingham, Lord Steward, That, forasmuch as the bringing of any Persons before their Lordships (upon Breach of the Privilege of the House) did appertain (as he the said Mr. Coningsby supposed and alleged) to his Place, though in the last Parliament (by some Mistake, as he thought) the Serjeant at Arms was employed therein, that therefore their Lordships would be pleased to confirm and settle such Order, as he might, at this Time, and from henceforth, have the Right of his Place in that Behalf; whose Request being considered of by their Lordships, it was thought meet, That the Committees under named (at their next Meeting upon any other Occasion) should take Notice of such Precedents as could be produced therein (either for the Gentleman Usher or the Serjeant at Arms), and thereof to make Report to the House; whereupon their Lordships would proceed to the deciding of this Question between them:

Dominus Custos Magni Sigilli continuavit præsens Parliamentum usque ad diem Lunæ, videlicet, 16m Novembris, hora nona.

Mr. Hogan's, Queen's Servant, Privilege.

Memorandum, That this Day the Lord Zowch renewed his former Motion, concerning the Arrest of William Hogan, Her Majesty's ordinary Servant, at the Suit of John Tolkerne; whereupon the Clerk of the Parliament was required to shew forth all such Precedents as he had found, touching the Arrest of any Persons privileged by Parliament; having received Direction from the Lords for that Purpose, as is before recorded; of which Sort, out of all the Journal Books remaining in his Custody, there were to be found only these Four here under-mentioned, and no more: videlicet,

Anno 27° Reginæ Elizabethæ, die Martis, 1 die Decembris, of James Diggs, Servant to my Lord's Grace of Canterbury.

Item, Anno 27° Reginæ Elizabethæ, die Lunæ, septimo die Decembris, of Robert Fynneis, Servant to the Lord Viscount Bindon.

Item, In the last Parliament of 39° Elizabethæ, 26 Novembris, of Edward Barston, Servant to the Lord Chandois; and 8 die Decembris, of John Yorke, the Lord Archbishop's Servant.

Item, Anno 14° Reginæ Elizabethæ, die ultimo Junii, it appeareth, that the Lord Crumwell made Complaint unto the Parliament, of an Attachment served on his Person out of the Court of Chancery; and that his Lordship was, by Order of the Parliament, discharged of the Attachment; but whether this Attachment was served in the Time of the Parliament, it doth not certainly appear.

Precedents for Privilege.

Which said Precedents being by him accordingly presented to the Lord Keeper, the same were presently read, together with certain Observations (out of a Book written by Richard Crompton, Esquire, intituled, The Authority and Jurisdiction of the Queen's Courts) concerning the Proceedings of the House in the like Case of George Ferrers, Gentleman, an ordinary Servant of King Henry the Eighth, about the 34th Year of His Reign. This being done, albeit sundry Motions were thereupon made by divers of the Lords for a present Proceeding in this Matter, nevertheless, because the said Tolkerne, having been formerly sent for, could not yet be found, as also in respect there was less Appearance of the Lords this Day than at other Times (and this Matter, concerning the Privileges of the House, was of great Importance, and therefore required a more full Assembly), Stay was made of any further Proceeding until Thursday next, the 19th of this Instant; and, in the mean Time, it was Ordered, That Tolkerne should be again sent for to appear before the Lords in the House, that Day, by Nine of the Clock in the Morning.
