more Cursed wth confusion and contention of prohibicions;

Westminster was to make him K. as it were of ye Ile of
Fraunce and not other provinces, so of a p'cinct about Lon-
don and Westminster; noted matter of profite was the cause
. why ye Judges imbraced so much ; warned a surceance of
graunting prohibicions for the vacacion folowing with a dis-
like they should be graunted but in Cowrt, and shewd a
purpose at some tyme to hear himself the matter and to
define of it, though he spent many daies about it : He sayd
they putt the subject to Tantalus payne that when he thought

to take the frute of his sute it fledde from him. [f. 36, b.] The judges were in effect silt: but note it had been easy to awn

swere without offense that the increas mought be as his
M. sayd, but that the quæstion would be whether it grew
bicause the Cowrts above imbraced more or yt the lower
Cowrts p'sumed more then in former tyme through the in-
clinacion of ye tymes to popularity, and so gave the occasion,

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.

generally spoken by ye K. The new oth limited to be tendred to 3 persons the Indited

Beauch. I do not know who this should be but Edward Lord Beauchamp, who was to be created Earl of Hertford on the death of the then Earl. See above, p. 79, n. 1. 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.

But note. Here follow three pages headed Transportat. Jul. 28, 16(8 ; I suppose by mistake.
