CHARLES II (1630-1685). King of England.
Letter Signed addressed at the foot 'To the Clerke of Our Signett attending', 3 pages folio, countersigned by the Earl of Arlington, Whitehall, 28 October 1670. Commanding the preparation of a warrant under the privy seal, and consisting primarily of the exact wording of the warrant - a remission of fines to Sir Jonathan Trelawny.
The document, or rather the warrant whose exact wording it contains, relates to the payment to Trelawny of 'fines' (sums of money due on the transfer of lands and estates) which would have become due to the Duchy of Cornwall in consequence of the grants of several estates to Trelawny 'and others'. The estates are enumerated: in Cornwall several that had belonged to the Widow Francis, the Widow Coutch, and the Widow Vyan [?Vyvyan] for estates held by Richard Parker and Richard Pope. Further fines were due from Thomas Beame for an estate in Somerset, and John Ward for an estate in Berkshire. The total sum involved was £839, and the warrant details how this was to be found from the income of the Duchy.
