The house or lodgings is an ancient building fronting the Green & consisting of an entry or hall & one parlour on the ground floor, 4 bed chambers, a small closet & withdrawing room above stairs, 3 small rooms or garrets at top & a kitchen & some conveniences below together with yards, gardens & a small terras next the Thames, a stable 21 foot by 18 foot next the store yard & a coach house shed 17 foot by 9 foot, the whole containing 42 foot broad by 328 foot long from the Green to the Thames. They are old & decayed & will be expensive to repair. They adjoin, on the east, land & buildings in lease to Mr. English which did sometime belong to the Housekeeper's lodgings or apartment. The greatest objection I foresee to the petitioner's lease may be the want of lodgings for the successors in his office though I find in the new buildings of the Court there is a small drawing room & entry 16 foot by 17 foot which will remain to the Surveyor and that there was (on new building the Palace) a good building made towards the Green adjoining to the store yard for the officers of the Works in general to meet in, which I find hath not of late been made use of, those officers sitting all together at Scotland Yard. If it be thought fit [some] conveniency may be made out of this building for a future Surveyor if he wants it. As the premises have never been in lease before, a rent of 10l. per an at least must be reserved to the Crown as a third part at least of the clear yearly value according to the Civil List Act [1 Anne c. 1]: and then considering the state of disrepair, the petitioner's arrears of 341l. 3. 4 are of as much or more value than the lease desired. Ibid., pp. 206–7.
Same by same to the Commissioners for Transportation to make out a debenture for 101l. 6. 8 for the hire of the ship Samuel employed in Wm. III's service from 1689 July 26 to 1690 June 13 in the reducing of Ireland.
Prefixing: report by said Commissioners on the petition of James St John. The said ship, Henry Gittings master, was employed as above & 206l. 14. 0 was due for same, whereof the master received 55l. and there is a charge standing out against the ship for 50l. 7. 4 for sundry provisions shipped on board for the Forces she was to carry, for the expence & delivery whereof there hath not been any account rendered, nor hath the master or other proprietor produced any papers in order to adjust the ship's account. In pursuance of an order of the Treasury Lords dated 6 Nov 1690 for giving certificates to the masters of [transport] ships engaged in the reduction of Ireland for one moiety of the money then due to them a certificate was made & delivered to the petitioner as attorney of Henry Gittins for 54l. 4. 0 in part of what was due for hire & freight of this ship. Petitioner claims a right to this certificate upon a just consideration. In 7 Wm. III an Act [6–7 Wm. & Mary c. 7] passed empowering the Commissioners for Transportation to make out debentures for the whole money due to the several ships employed in the reduction of Ireland and in order thereto the moiety certificates made out in 1690 as above were recalled into the Office [of Transports] “for that none of these had ever been satisfied.” Although the petitioner may have a just right to 54l. 4. 0 it has not been practicable in the whole Transport affair to make out more than one debenture upon one contract or for one immediate service. In this case a debenture ought to be made out for 101l. 6. 8 (being the total hire less the said 55l. & 50l. 7. 4) to the person legally entitled, the said Samuell Gittings & family being dead. Ibid., pp. 209–10.
July 6. Same by same to the Stamps Commissioners not to demand Stamp Duties for any recognizances taken on account of the orphans of the city of London.
Prefixing: report to the Lord Treasurer from Sir James Montague Solicitor General, dated 1707–8 March 12 on the representation from the Mayor &c of the city of London on behalf of the orphans of the said city to whom they are guardians. Upon the death of any freeman who leaves a son or unmarried daughter under 21 years of age the executor is summoned before the Court of Orphans & obliged to give recognizance to exhibit an inventory & then to give recognizance to pay within 2 months what is due to the orphans on the foot of the inventory & to account for what shall afterwards come to his hands; after this they are to give recognizance to pay the [City] Chamberlain for the use of the orphans when they shall be of age (if son) or married (if daughter) the sums due to them & to maintain them in the meantime. If the Duty of a double 5s. be paid for every recognizance taken in the Orphans Court it will be a heavy tax upon executors. I consider the Stamps Acts of 5 & 6 Wm. & Mary [c. 21] & 9 & 10 Wm. III [c. 25] were not intended to apply to these recognizances, and the Stamps Commissioners have not looked upon them as so applying until very lately. 'Twould be well if this matter were cleared by an Act of Parliament. But if this be inconvenient, as taking away some part of the fund on which great sums have been lent, your Lordship may direct the Stamps Commissioners to go on in the usual methods they have been in until some informer bring this matter to a judicial determination in the Courts at Westminster. Ibid., pp. 210–12.
Same by same to the Excise Commissioners to discharge Capt. William Smith, Commander of the Burchet privateer, from the Duties on brandy leaked & wasted in the prize ship Ufro laden with wines &c from Bordeaux which was condemned at Doctors Commons & afterwards seized by the Customs Commissioners on a supposition that it was not lawful prize, but on a trial in the Exchequer a verdict was given for said Smith, but in the interval July 11 last to Sept 23 last 242 gallons leaked when in the Customs warehouse.
Prefixing: report by the Excise Commissioners on said Smith's petition. Warrants not Relating to Money XX, pp. 212–3.
July 6. Warrant by Treasurer Godolphin to Samuell Burton, Receiver of the late Hospital of the Savoy, to pay (in accordance with the Queen's pleasure) 28l. 9. 0 for repairing the Master's house in the Savoy: together with dormant clause for the payment of the annual allowances (& arrears thereof) due to the Lecturer of the Savoy & to the poor there.
Prefixing: report dated 1706 June 24 by said Burton relating to said Hospital. In some leases belonging to said Hospital there are distinct & separate rents reserved & payable to the Lecturer, who at present is Dr. Pratt, the petitioner herein. The late Master Dr. Killegrew used to pay the Lecturer 20l. per an in consideration of the said rents & of the said Lecturer's taking care of divine services & funerals (from which some revenue of the said Hospital doth arise), which services are still performed by Dr. Pratt or his curate. By your Lordship's order of Sept 12 last [1705] I paid Dr. Pratt in full to Midsummer 1702 being the time of the dissolution of the said Hospital. There is therefore due 75l. to him up to 1706 March 25. Since the said dissolution Pratt has spent 28l. in repair of the Master's House in the Savoy.
Dr. Killegrew, the late Master, allowed 4l. per an to the poor of the precinct of the Savoy. Since the said dissolution 15l. is due thereon to 1706 March 25.
Followed by: later Treasury confirmation dated 1707 Dec 4 of this warrant. Ibid., pp. 217–8. Money Book XIX, p. 369.
Same by same to Sir Robert Cotton & Sir Thomas Frankland, Postmaster General, to cause a fifth packet boat to be built for carrying the mails between England & Portugal.
Prefixing: memorial from said Postmaster General. The packet boats between England & Portugal have of late met with several disasters. The New Allyance a year since was taken in her outward voyage through the Channel by 2 French privateers, each of a much superior force, after a very sharp engagement with them both for above 8 hours. The Old Allyance in Feb last was cast away in the mouth of the river at Lisbon by striking on a sand which had been shifted by violent storms & great land floods occasioned by 6 weeks incessant rains, at which time several ships were lost in the said river. The Expedition was taken some time before by 3 French men of war on the coast of Portugal having first lost all her masts in a great storm but was afterwards, on the proposal of the French commanders, ransomed by Capt. Clyes for 550l. “which we must acknowledge was a very reasonable & advantageous agreement.” These accidents have put us to great difficulties to supply the said correspondence, & we have been forced to order a small packet boat which had formerly been employed between Dover & Ostend to proceed to the Lisbon station & at the same time we had to order our deputies at Plymouth & Falmouth to hire such vessels as were to be had at either of those ports till we could provide proper boats; & accordingly two boats have been hired but so small & defenceless that nothing but absolute necessity could have induced us to entrust her Majesty's mails & despatches therein at a time when the English Channel & the coast of Portugal has been infested with such a number of the enemy's privateers. We have therefore agreed for the building of a new packet boat in the river about 200 tons & she is now ready to sail to Falmouth. The Expedition is since refitted at Lisbon out of the Queen's stores there. These with the Queen & the Prince which are “reigning” [running] in the service are all proper vessels for that station. But in order to carry on a weekly correspondence with regularity & despatch one more packet boat at least is required, five boats being barely sufficient to perform that service by reason of the great distance of the passage, the boats seldom making their voyage out & home in less than a month and at their return to Falmouth requiring some time to be cleaned and repaired. For this reason we had your Lordship's order formerly to provide five boats & that number has been employed until the above late accidents. Warrants not Relating to Money XX, pp. 218–9.
July 6. Same by same to the Commissioners for Transportation to make out a debenture for 30l. 16. 9 to the proprietor of the ship Baltimore, Nich Seaborne master, for the freight of 44 horses from Holland belonging to the Third Troop of Guards; as certified by an account of Daniell Sadler, late agent for Transport service in Holland.
Prefixing: report dated 1707 Aug 6 by the Commissioners for Transport on the petition of Michaell Jones merchant relating to said account. The papers were by Mr. Atkinson & Mr. Roope [two of the said Commissioners] delivered to the Commissioners for examining, stating & determining the Debts due to the Army, Navy & for Transport service but the said papers were lost & a certificate was refused by the Commissioners for Transports, & therefore he could obtain no debenture from the said Commissioners of Accounts. “But we are to acquaint your Lordship that all debentures for Transport service during the late war from the beginning of 1693 have been made out by the said Commissioners of Accounts and not by the Commissioners for Transportation. And we understand there are debentures made out by them for such respective sums due for which no application has been made, as in case of this ship, although not signed by them. But to whom the same were delivered on the determination of their commission or in whose custody they may be we know not.” Ibid., pp. 247–8.
Royal warrant dated Windsor Castle to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland to pay 3 months' allowance to either or both of the Military & Civil List of [in the margin three months of the arrears on] the Establishment of Ireland, “as often as you find the revenue of our said kingdom in a condition [to bear it]” notwithstanding the royal sign manual of 11 Jan 1703–4 which directed the payments on the said Lists to be constantly left 6 months in arrear by reason that the revenue was not in a condition to answer those payments in a better manner; but it being now represented by the said Lord Lieutenant that there is money enough to pay 3 months' allowance on one if not both of those Lists by reason of several Regiments being a considerable time ago removed from the Establishment of Ireland & not being yet replaced. And whereas several pensioners on the Irish Establishment are much straitened by being constantly left 6 months in arrear & the Lord Lieutenant is of opinion that the revenue of that kingdom may at all times allow all pensions not exceeding 150l. per an to be paid quarterly as they become due, he is hereby empowered to so pay such pensions notwithstanding the said royal sign manual. Out Letters (Ireland) IX, pp. 29–30.
