Scope and content

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.

(In the hand of an amanuensis. Signed by Winchester and Mildmay. Examined by Christopher Smyth, clerk of the pipe.)
