Feb. 15, 1607. This begins a new page, still with the heading Transportat. Jul. 29, 1608, being apparently a note originally made on the 15th of February, 1607-8, and now transferred to the new note-book.
Upon the subject of the first two paragraphs, see Mr. Heath's preface to the legal argument on the Jurisdiction of the Marches. Lit, and Prof. Works, ii.

This appears to be a fresh query. “ The progress,” says Chamberlaine, writing on the 7th of July, 1608, “holds on towards Northamptonshire.” In the spring of 1607 there had been serious riots in that county, “under pretence of laying open enclosed grounds of late years taken in." (See Book of Proclamations,' p. 139.) And Bacon, who, as we have seen, did not quite like the part assigned him in that service, watches to see what impression a visit to the place will make upon the King. These “commotions about unlawful inclosures ” had begun in May, 1607, spread through many counties, and “it was not till the midst of June before all this stir was quieted.” In July commissioners had been sent to inquire into the offences and the grievances, some suflicient gentlemen in the several counties, such as were least interested in the business of enclosures,” being appointed to join with them.

It appears from a letter of his to Salisbury (S. P. Dom. James I.) 8 May, 1611, that some complaint had been made of him to his father ; and when he died in July, 1612, we learn from Chamberlain that his father “took his death more grievously than was expected.” It may be that he was a drunkard, which would sufficiently explain the King's allusion.
