Painters and Plainterers.

Memorandum, That whereas a Bill hath been presented to the High Court of Parliament, by the Com pany of the Mystery or Trade of Painters, making thereby Complaint against the Company of Plaisterers, for and concerning certain Wrong pretended to be done to them the said Painters by the Company of Plaisterers, in using some Part of their Trade of Painting, contrary to the Right of their Charter, as it is pretended; and humbly seeking, by the said Bill, Reformation of the said pretended Wrong; and whereas the said Bill passed not the Higher House of Parliament (for just and good Reasons moving the said Lords of the Higher Court to the contrary), yet nevertheless the said Lords of the Higher House have thought it meet and convenient, that some Course might be taken for Reformation of any such Wrong as may be found truly complained of, and fit to be remedied, and for the settling of some good Agreement and Order for the said Painters and Plaisterers, so as each Sort of them might exercise their Trade conveniently, without impeaching one the other; it is therefore Ordered, by the said Court of the Higher House of Parliament, That the said Complaint and Cause of the said Painters (which proceeded not in Parliament) shall be referred to the Lord Mayor of London, and the Recorder of London, to be heard, examined, adjudged, and ordered, as in Justice and Equity shall be found meet; and that, at the Time or Times of the Hearing of the said Cause, the Lord Chief Justice of England, Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, Mr. Justice Gawdie, Mr. Baron Clarke, and Mr. Attorney General, or any Four, Three, or Two of them, shall assist, and give their Help, for the making and establishing of some good Order and Agreement; and that the said Parties Complainant, and also the Company of the Plaisterers, shall observe and keep such Order as by the Lord Mayor, the Lord Chief Justice of England, the Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, Mr. Justice Gawdie, Mr. Baron Clarke, Mr. Attorney General, and Mr. Recorder of London, or any Six, Five, Four, or Three of them (whereof the Lord Mayor, and the Lord Chief Justice of England, or Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, to be Two), shall be set down and prescribed.

Craysord and Vaughan.

Memorandum, That, whereas William Crayford, of Mongeham, in Kent, Gentleman, was this Day brought before the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, into the Higher House of Parliament, to answer an Information made against him, that he had procured and suborned his Son, William Crayford, to lay sundry Executions and Outlawries on William Vaughan, Gentleman, Servant to the Earl of Shrewsbury, contrary to the Privilege of the Court; and the said Crayford having been heard (in the Presence of William Vaughan) what he could say concerning the said Information (wherein he protested that he was guiltless, and that his said Son had not in any sort received such Direction from him, as was informed); it was therefore by the Court thought meet, and so Ordered, That the Examination and Determining of the Controversies and Suits depending between the said Crayford and Vaughan should be referred unto the Earl of Worcester, the Lord Bishop of London, and the Lord Cobham; and that they the said Crayford and Vaughan should enter into good and sufficient Bonds, each to other, to stand to, observe, and perform, such Award and Arbitrement, as the said Lords shall make and set down between them.
