Whereas Order was taken, at the last Sitting of the Court of Parliament, videlicet, 3 die Decembris, That a Writ of Privilege of Parliament should be made out, by the Lord Keeper, unto the Sheriffs of London and Middlesex, for the having of the Body of William Vaughan (Prisoner in Newgate), together with the Cause of his Imprisonment, before the said Court, this present Day; the said Writ having been thereupon made out, by the Lord Keeper; and the same, together with the said Prisoner, and the Causes of his Imprisonment, being returned and brought this Day into the Court, by the Under Sheriff of the County of Middlesex, and the said Prisoner William Vaughan having there made Declaration of the notorious Frauds and Practices used, by William Crayford and others, for the arresting the said Vaughan; and likewise the said Crayford having been heard what he could say for himself in that Behalf; forasmuch as it appeared to the Lords, that, besides the Breach of the Privilege of the said High Court, the said Crayford had fraudulently and maliciously taken out, and laid upon the said Vaughan, divers Writs of Execution and Outlawry of very many Years past, and utterly without the Privity and Knowledge of most of the Parties to whom the said Suits appertained, of which Parties some were avowed to have been a good while since deceased; it is therefore Agreed and Ordered, by the general Consent of the Court, That the said William Vaughan shall be forthwith discharged out of Prison and Execution; and the said Sheriffs shall be free from any Trouble, Damage, or Molestation, for his said Discharge; and it is likewise Ordered, That, for Satisfaction of any such Debts as shall be found due to be paid by the said Vaughan, upon the Arrests mentioned and recited in the foresaid Return of the Sheriff's Writ, he the said Vaughan shall enter into sufficient Bond, to stand to such Order as shall be set down by certain of the Lords of the Parliament; namely, the Earl of Worcester, the Earl of Pembrooke, the Lord Bishop of Durham, the Lord Bishop of Winchester, the Lord Windsor, and the Lord St. John; to whom, by the Court, the Ordering thereof is committed; and moreover it is Ordered, That the said Crayford shall be returned to the Prison of The Fleet, and there kept close Prisoner, until farther Direction be given for his Enlargement; and that the Keeper of Newgate, lately committed to The Fleet, for not bringing the Prisoner into the Court, shall be presently discharged.
