Letter from Rt. Hon. John Morley to Henry Sidgwick

Reports that he has written to Sidgwick's brother [Arthur?], and expresses the hope that he 'may be able to meet his wishes.' Claims to be ashamed of himself for not writing to Sidgwick as he promised to do, 'about Baudeau, Letr[ .], [ ].' Explains that his failure to do so 'was due to absolute incapacity.' Claims that '[his Life of Richard Cobden?]...is a narrative and a biography...and not a treatise.' Expresses the wish that Sidgwick would write an article on George Eliot for the Fortnightly Review.

Morley, John (1838–1923) 1st Viscount Morley of Blackburn, politician

Note of a fine, relating to places in Norfolk

Note of a fine between (A) John Hastynggis, son of Edward Hastynggis, knight, John Heydon, Richard Suthwell, Henry Spelman, and William Stather, clerk, plaintiffs, and (B) Roger Drury, esquire, and his wife Anne, deforciants, of the manors of Yaxham, ‘Cursones’, ‘Gerbrigges’, ‘Reppes’, and ‘Ilneys’, in Yaxham, East Dereham, Westfield, Whinburgh, Garveston, and Mattishall, and three tofts, 100a. of (arable) land, 10a. of meadow, 15a. of pasture, 5a. of wood, and 11s. of rent in Yaxham, all in Norfolk.

(The correct term for this document is uncertain, but Halliwell-Phillipps uses the term ‘note of a fine’ to describe two similar documents in Outlines of the Life of Shakespeare, 10th ed. (1898), ii. 11, 25; and ‘The note of the fine, or, abstract of the original contract’ is the fourth of the five parts of a fine enumerated by Jacob in his New Law Dictionary (1772), sig. 5C3.)

Letter from the Marquess of Winchester and Walter Mildmay to [an officer of the Receipt of the Exchequer?]

John Gill had a lease from Queen dated 4 Mar. 1563, by which he was granted, among other things, a tenement late in the occupation of John Bingley in Over Trelabe, Cornwall, part of the manor of Carmedon Prior, and another tenement late in the occupation of John Shere in Nethertrelabe, part of the manor of Clemeslande [Climsland] Prior, Cornwall. The yearly rent of the two tenements is 56s. 2d. and the fine is equivalent to four years’ rent, i.e. £11 4s. 8d. Gill having surrendered his interest in these tenements, the Queen, being petitioned for them, has granted them by letters patent dated 18 Nov. 1564 to William Sheres, in reversion for 31 years [see the Calendar of Patent Rolls, 1563–1566, p. 342]. The correspondent is therefore directed to repay Gill or the bringer of the letter £11 4s. 8d., and take an acquittance in return.

Letter from the Marquess of Winchester and Walter Mildmay to Richard Stanley, one of the tellers of the Receipt

Humphrey Shelton, auditor of the Receipt, has worked diligently in his reckonings with the tellers, and they are now brought to ‘good and perfecte order’. It has come to light that one annuity of £40 a year, granted by the house of St John of Jerusalem for thirty years to Thomas Hennage, gentleman, has been paid for 4½ years after the end of the term, and that another annuity of £20 a year granted by Queen Mary to Edmund Beningfild, gentleman, for the term of his life, has been paid for three years after his death. A total of £240 is therefore to be paid back to the Queen. In consideration of these discoveries and of Shelton’s diligence and service they have allowed him £60. Stanley is to pay Shelton this sum and obtain a quittance in return.
