Vaughan, Earl of Shrewsbury's Servant, Privilege.
Memorandum, That whereas the Lords Spiritual and Temporal of the High Court of Parliament were this Day informed, That one William Vaughan, Servant to the Earl of Shrewsbury, was of late arrested (contrary to the Privilege of the said Court) by the Procurement of one William Crayford, of Mongeham, in Kent, and committed to the Prison of Newgate, where he yet remaineth; it was therefore Ordered by the said Court, That a Serjeant at Arms shall be sent to the Keeper of that Prison, and require him, in their Lordships Names, to bring the said William Vaughan before their Lordships, in his Company, into the Upper House of Parliament, To-morrow, the 2d of this Instant, by Nine of the Clock in the Morning; and that the said Serjeant at Arms shall also bring before the Lords, at the Time and Place prefixed, the said William Crayford, together with such other Persons as did either arrest or assist the Arrest of the said William Vaughan.
Memorandum, That the Serjeant at Arms was sent this Day for the Parties abovementioned, in like fort as the Gentleman Usher had been formerly sent for others. And for as much as the Committees that were appointed (videlicet, 14 Novembris) to decide the Question between them in this Behalf, had not yet performed the same; it was therefore Commanded by the House, That a Remembrance should be made, that the sending for any Parties before the Lords, at this Time, or heretofore, by the Gentleman Usher or Serjeant at Arms, should not be prejudicial to either of their Rights, until the said Committees should have convenient Time to consider of, and decide, this Question betwixt them.
Musters, Soldiers, &c.
Upon a Motion made to the House by the Lord Treasurer, it was Agreed, That the Committees on the Two several Bills, the one concerning Musters, Soldiers, etc. the other for Confirmation of Letters Patents, etc. should join in one Committee for both Bills.
