It contains copies of letters and other documents relating to the Commission appointed by James I for the pacification and government of the borderland of his two kingdoms. They are all in one small, neat hand, and almost in chronological order. There is reason to believe that they were made for Joseph Pennington of Muncaster, one of the Commissioners, from originals in the possession of Sir Wilfred Lawson, the most active of his colleagues, and the custodian of their papers. The name of Graham is generally given as Grayme, and Grey as Gray, but in the following calendar I have modernised these and most other proper names.

The King to the Commissioners. Instructions as to the execution of the Commission. One of the English side is to be commander of the rest for the first three months, and then one of the Scottish side for three months, and so afterwards alternately. All deadly feuds are to be suppressed. Fugitives from one country to the other are to be delivered to the ordinary officer on demand. All idle vagabonds are to be expelled from the bounds of the commission. All in whom there can be expected no hope of amendment may be removed to some other place, "where the change of aire will make in them an exchange of their manners." The armour "which hath served the broken people within those bonds in their lewd actions may be taken from them."

April 17, 1605. Dumfries. The Commissioners to the Council. We met at Carlisle on the 6th inst., and summoned all the Grahams who were bound for themselves and their followers. Whereas two of every branch were bound, we have ordered that six of the principal of every branch shall be bound for themselves and their followers, and that each of these six shall find two sureties. We have made orders "for the better government of the broken people of either countrie," subject to reform by the Council. We send a list of one hundred and fifty Grahams who have submitted themselves, and whom we think most fit to be sent away. Many of the said Grahams appear to be poor labourers and undertenants to the rest. Many complaints are made by English and Scots alike about offences made before the death of the late Queen.

The English Commissioners to the Scottish. Since our departure from you today, we have learned that the leaving out of Richard Graham, son of Walter Graham of Netherby, is so evil taken, that we shall be taxed of partiality. We wish therefore to add his name to the list. We desire also to have all the different branches of the Grahams before us, face to face, so that we may see which are most fit to be sent away.

[no title]  D PEN/216/f. 12  May 17, 1605. Greenwich

Contents:
The Council to the English Commissioners, in reply to the letter dated at Dumfries on the 17th of April. The King's clemency towards the Grahams who have submitted themselves has been shewn in pardoning their lives, and furthermore in disposing of them so that they shall be in no worse condition than his other good subjects who were not offenders, being appointed to be sent to serve in the garrisons and cautionary towns of Flushing and Brill, places where many honest men desire to be maintained in service. You are to appoint two very discreet persons to conduct them to Newcastle by the last day of June, whence one hundred will be conveyed to Flushing, and fifty to Brill. For the charges of their journey to Newcastle, we require you to provide as much money as will serve them at the rate of 8d. a day to every man, and 4s. a day for each of the conductors, and the money so disbursed by you will be repaid out of the Exchequer.
May 17, 1605. Greenwich. The Council to the English Commissioners. It has been no pleasing information to his Majesty, and evil news to us, to hear of the escape of twenty-eight or twenty-nine prisoners from the prison at Carlisle. It seems strange that you have not told us what has become of them, or what course has been taken for the recovery of them.

Contents:
Sir W Lawson to Viscount Cranborne. Having heard that the prisoners condemned when the Earl of Cumberland was his Majesty's Lieutenant here had broken the prison on Wednesday last at night, I have repaired to Carlisle, where I find that twenty-nine out of thirty-three have escaped. Enclosed is a list of their names. Eight are Scots, who have gone to Scotland; the rest are Englishmen, of whom nine or ten should have been met yesterday between Penrith and Appleby, travelling southwards.
"The names of the prisoners that made an escape forth of Carliell Castle." Seven bear the name of Armstrong, and five that of Graham.
April 27, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to Sir J Charteris. Concerning the escape of the eight Scotsmen from the Castle.

[no title]  D PEN/216/f. 14  1605

Contents:
April 29 ("this penult of Aprill"), 1605. Dumfries. Sir J Charteris to Sir W Lawson. I have spoken to Lord Maxwell, who is steward of the country, and master of most of the Scotsmen, so that none of them should be "resett" or "have any supplement" within his Lordship's bounds, urging him to send his baily to take up their houses and remove their wives and families. The countries must be charged to rise and assist the garrisons.
June 2, 1605. Berwick. The English Commissioners to the Council. Two of the escaped prisoners, Matthew Graham and Richard Blackburne, have been apprehended. It will be difficult to get men of some quality as conductors of the Grahams for 4s. a day.

[no title]  D PEN/216/f. 15  1605

Contents:
June 2, 1605, Berwick. The Commissioners to the Council. We have taken order that Sir Henry Leigh and Sir William Cranston, with the horsemen in his Majesty's pay under their charge, shall go to the west parts, to search for the condemned prisoners who have escaped from Carlisle, and, if they have taken the woods, to demolish their houses and expel their families, and to apprehend their "aiders and comforters." Forty horsemen have been enrolled for this service.
June 3, 1605. Berwick. Sir W Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. Confirms his letter of April 27.
June 2, 1605. Greenwich. The Council to the English Commissioners. Each of the two conductors of the Grahams is to have 6s. a day instead of 4s., and each may have a lieutenant with an allowance of 4s. a day. Whosoever of the men appointed to go to the cautionary towns shall run away, must expect to be punished with death.

June 13, 1605. Berwick. Thomas Parkinson, Mayor of Berwick, to the Commissioners. "I caused a drume to warne all the ould servitors, such as were or had been officers, to meet togither in the parado, where I read and shewed your letter." William Breddiman, gentleman, sometime under-marshal, and William Nodder, gentleman, late officer to Sir John Skinner, offered themselves to be leaders, and William Lambe, late officer to Captain Bowyer, offered himself to be lieutenant. These are approved by general opinion of all. They will not fail to be at Carlisle on the 18th. They pray that they may be well paid, and desire to have allowance for two drums.
June 27, 1605. Edinburgh. Sir William Cranston to the English Commissioners. I have burned all the houses on the Scottish side, at Staykhue.
June 29, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Scottish. We have denounced seven of the principal men of the hundred-and-fifty Grahams as fugitives, and we pray you to take order for their apprehension.

"The names of the principall Graymes that made default. 1. Hutchin Graime alias Young Hutchin," and six others.
June 29, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Scottish. We send a copy of his Majesty's warrant delivered to us by Hutchin Graham. We have answered him that he should have what in duty and reason thereunto appertained, but he, giving it out to be a warrant to free him and all his clan from going over to Flushing or Brill, absents himself and sets a lewd example to others.
May 13, 1605. Greenwich. The King to the Commissioners. Warrant to spare the lives of Hutchin Graham and other malefactors who were in the field when Sanders Ringell Armstrong was taken, and to whom, for that service, pardon was promised.
June 29, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Governor of Brill, or his deputy. We have received orders from the Council for sending away fifty of the Grahams to Brill, under a sufficient conductor and lieutenant, who are thence to return. We have chosen Thomas Carleton as conductor, and William Lambe as lieutenant. They have spent long time in the wars, and being now desirous to serve his Majesty, we commend them to you for employment.
June 28, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Mayor of Newcastle. We should have sent one hundred and fifty of the Grahams by the last of the month, but their appearance has been so slack that we can send only fifty, who are to be shipped to Brill. We hope to send one hundred for Flushing within four days.

June 30, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Earl of Salisbury.
June 30, 1605 Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Council. Three of the escaped prisoners have voluntarily submitted themselves to prison, where they now remain with the four that fled not and the two that were formerly apprehended. At present the woods yield some relief to the others. We summoned the bondmen to appear on the 21st inst., then again on the 25th, and again on the 28th, but there appeared only eighty-five. We have therefore sent fifty to Brill, and delivered the others to their conductor, William Breddiman, and his lieutenant, William Nodder. We have caused Hutchin Graham and seven others to be denounced as fugitives. He is a man generally evil thought of here. We marvel at the absence of Sir William Selby from this service, and of the ten men in his Majesty's pay who are with him.

The fifty Grahams sent to Brill to the English Commissioners  D PEN/216/f. 20  [n.d.]

Contents:
Many of us who were true men confessed ourselves offenders, by reason of the Earl of Cumberland's promise that provision should be made for our wives and children, nearly a thousand in number, as good as that which we had upon Esk. We therefore pray for the fulfilment of this promise. We could in a month raise three hundred able men to serve his Majesty under our own leaders. We are willing to go to the mouth of the cannon, to the block, or to the gibbet, to show our loyalty.

Complaint has been made to us by William Wicklyffe, servant to the Earl of Northumberland, of an attack made on him and the Earl's auditor and others travelling along the borders, by certain persons who robbed them, and carried him to prison. He says that there are certain persons, chargeable with offences of their own, who can make proof against Roger Witherington and Randell Fenwick in this matter. They are to receive assurance for coming and going in safety.
July 1, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to the Earl of Cumberland. David of the Bankhead has come in and humbled himself to his Majesty, and it is thought that Hutchin, and others will do likewise to-day.

Contents:
June 25, 1605. The Earl of Montrose to the English Commissioners. Although you have determined to transport certain of my cousins to Newcastle on Saturday night, there to remain in ward, I entreat you to permit Richard Graham, son of Walter of Netherby, to remain with me. I will be answerable for him to the King, to the Council, and to you.
June 30, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Earl of Montrose. We may in no way alter the list of those who are to be sent over to the Low Countries, and the name of Richard Graham is on the list sent to us by the Privy Council of England.
July 4, 1605. Newcastle. Thomas Riddell, Mayor of Newcastle, to the English Commissioners. I pray you to give me certain warning of the coming of the hundred men, otherwise I shall be forced either to stay a ship, or to stay them, at the King's charge.
July 6, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Governor of Flushing. As we cannot get the whole number of a hundred Grahams, we send seventy-two under the charge of William Breddiman and William Nodder.
[July 6, 1605.] Testimonial of the English Commissioners that David Graham of the Bankhead, appointed to go to Flushing with others, differs from most of the rest of his surname in that generally he has not been accounted a thief or a "resetter" of thieves, but a man of more civil government and behaviour than most of the rest.

[no title]  D PEN/216/f. 24  1605

Contents:
July 6, 1605. Carlisle. Testimonial of the same that Richard Graham, appointed to go to Flushing, is the eldest son of Walter Graham of Netherby, the chief of all the Grahams dwelling between Leven and Sarke, who should receive such favour as to his "demerit" shall appertain.
July 7, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Earl of Salisbury. We have sent seventy-two Grahams to Newcastle. Hutchin Graham of the Gards and John Graham, alias Jock of the Pear-tree, have much hindered this service, and their offence ought not to be passed over.
July 7, 1605. Carlisle. The English Commissioners to the Council. We have sent seventy-two Grahams to Newcastle, with 2s. apiece for three days, 7l. 4s., and 19l. for their conductors. Of the seven principal Grahams whom we denounced as fugitives, four have submitted themselves, and have gone with the others, viz., Richard Graham, son of Walter of Netherby, David Graham of the Bankhead, Alexander Graham of Kirkanders, alias Geordies Sandie, and Hutchin Graham of Rowcliffe. Hutchin Graham of Gards still gives out that he has a free pardon for himself and all his, whereas the King's warrant applies to five only, of whom two dwell in Scotland, one has been hanged, and one has willingly gone to Flushing. Jock of the Pear-tree is the other. We have expelled the families and uncovered the houses of those who still stand out. There are persons of other surnames whose lives have been no better than those of the Grahams.

August 6, 1605. Haddington. [Sir William Seaton] to Sir W Lawson. Sir W Selby or Sir W Lawson would be the fittest to attend at Hawick. The English Commissioners must inform Sir William Cranston, before the 20th inst., of the person or persons selected, and of the number of the train, because the commodity of lodging is much worse at Hawick than at Dumfries.

August 14, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to Sir William Cranston. We have been expecting to hear from you and to receive some of those who broke his Majesty's castle, and some of the fugitive Grahams, who, we hear, go about openly at Edinburgh and elsewhere.
August 8, 1605. Newcastle. Sir W Selby, Sir R Delaval, and E Grey, to Sir W Lawson. The commissions of oyer and terminer for England and Scotland are distinct, and it appears to us that we have nothing to do with the meeting of the Scottish Commissioners at Hawick.
June 27, 1605. Westminster. The King to the English Commissioners. Warrant for a certificate concerning forfeited recognisances.
August 20, 1605. Grafton. The Earl of Northampton to the English Commissioners. Sir Henry Leigh has asked for the escheats of the goods of fugitives and their abettors, with the benefit of all forfeited recognisances, on the English side, in order to enable him to bear the burden of his service.

August 31, 1605. Seaton Delaval. Sir R Delaval and E Grey to Sir W Lawson and J Pennington. Sir William Selby alleges that his men are too busy to apprehend the persons named in the Lord President's letter. The Sheriff of Northumberland is absent, and very busy about his Majesty's affairs, touching recusants, etc. Give directions to Sir Henry Leigh to apprehend them, and subscribe our names. We perceive that Sir W Selby will keep his men to himself, and will not be at our directions. There are nightly divers stealths in this country, and they are likely to increase. It is desirable to write to the Council for authority to send away persons of bad disposition for the King's service abroad.

September 1, 1605. Barmore. Sir W Selby to Sir W Lawson. I send the articles concluded at Hawick. There was a somewhat vehement disputation. The Commissioners of Scotland "made no bones" to kill such fugitives or felons as made resistance. I was not of that opinion concerning those that should be taken on our side. Give Sir Henry Leigh your opinion in the matter. He is very discreet, but he relies much on your judgment.

September 13, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to the Scottish Commissioners. Common report says that the Armstrongs of Kinmouth, who were the principal prisoners who escaped from Carlisle Castle, remain quietly at their houses, and that Hutchin Graham with his followers, who were the chief causers of the disobedience of the Grahams, go openly up and down, in Scotland. This is a hindrance to the King's service, and a pernicious example. Postscript.--Four of the Grahams who were sent to Flushing (whose names are given) have returned without licence and fled to Scotland. Pray give order that they may be apprehended.

N.D. Mungo Ribton of Cockermouth to the King. As he was travelling in Gillesland, co. Cumberland, with William Wickliffe, esq., and William Stockdale, upon the affairs of the Earl of Northumberland, they were beset by a company of barbarous people, who spoiled them of horses, money, and apparel, to the value of 200l., and carried away Wickliffe and Ribton into Scotland as prisoners, and ransomed them, to the overthrow of their estates and families. They also spoiled Stockdale of all that he had, to the value of 100 marks. The petitioner prosecuted the matter at Carlisle, but no punishment has been inflicted upon the offenders, or recompense on him. He prays for the apprehension of the said offenders, and of one of the chief of them, Geoffrey Carleton, who remains near London.

October 7, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson and J Pennington to Sir W Selby, Sir R Delaval, and E Grey. Many of the Grahams have returned, and daily return. We will commit such of them as have returned without warrant, until the pleasure of the Council be known. None of the nineteen fugitives, or of the Armstrongs of Kynemouth, have been brought in, although several letters have been sent to the Scottish Commissioners, and to Sir William Cranston. We send you a draft of an answer to the Earl of Northampton concerning Sir Henry Leigh's suit. Postscript:--By Sir H Leigh's means, Hutchin Graham has submitted himself to his Majesty's mercy. We have committed him prisoner to Carlisle Castle.

October 7, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson and J Pennington to the Council. About twenty-four of the Grahams who were sent to Flushing have returned, and it is said that as many more have landed in divers parts, and they are daily expected here. Some have licences of divers sorts, as some to return within two months, etc. We have issued a warrant to Sir H Leigh for the apprehension of such as have returned without licence. The better sort much mislike the return of the Grahams. There is some stealing here, and it is likely to increase by reason of the return of these Grahams. Sir H Leigh has done good service with regard to Hutchin Graham.
October 8, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. Being one of the Knights of the Shire for the county of Cumberland, and also one of the Commissioners for the middle shires of Great Britain, I desire to know whether it is the King's pleasure that I should come up to serve at the Parliament, or remain here.

October 23, 1605. The English Commissioners to the Earl of Northampton. They endorse the opinion of Sir W Selby concerning the suit of Sir H Leigh.
October 23, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to the Earl of Cumberland. I am troubled with an infirmity in my leg and unable to undergo a long journey. We have appointed a gaol delivery at Carlisle on the 6th of November, and another at Newcastle on the 11th. I therefore crave that my absence may be pardoned. Otherwise on further advertisement I shall perform the commands given to me to the uttermost or my power, if I can travel but ten miles a day. More of the Grahams are returning daily. If some order be not taken, they will all be shortly at home again.

By the negligence of the gaoler's servants, who left the door open when they brought in the prisoners' supper, five notable thieves escaped out of the gaol here last night of whom one only has been taken again. There remain eight to be tried at the next gaol delivery. This is the third time that prisoners have escaped since the present sheriff entered office.

October 19, 1605. Whitehall. The Council to the English Commissioners. His Majesty has been acquainted with your care and diligence in sifting out the manner and means of the return of the Grahams from service in the Low Countries. His pleasure is that all who have come with a pass shall be sent back to Newcastle to be there embarked and returned to the captain under whom they served. We have written to the Mayor of Newcastle and to Viscount Lisle, Governor of Flushing. It has been usual to grant leave of absence for two months to ordinary soldiers, and the Governor and his deputy did not know that the men sent over from your parts were destined to remain beyond the seas without returning. You are to proceed according to justice against those who have returned without licence concerning their former offences, and keep them in prison until his Majesty's pleasure is known. The passports subscribed by the name of Philip Thormington are counterfeit, for he is not captain of any company in those parts. Sir H Leigh has done acceptable service in procuring the submission of Hutchin Graham, who is to be detained in Carlisle Castle until further directions. When these orders have been obeyed, Sir W Lawson is to repair to Parliament.

September 28, 1605. Hampton Court. Sir Roger Wilbraham to the English Commissioners. On behalf of George Graham of Burnefoote, who has shewed his loyalty in apprehending one Sander Rynion, a rebellious malefactor. You have threatened to press him for service in the Low Countries. He is lame and impotent, and he has the charge of a wife and twelve children.
May 23, 1605. Warrant from the Earl of Cumberland to stay proceedings against William Taylor for a burglary said to have been committed thirteen years since. He has been employed in his Majesty's service and has deserved well therein, especially in the taking of Robert Sandie, a notable thief and murderer, who was at the murder of Sir John Carmichael. Taylor had a promise of mercy from the Bishop of Carlisle and Sir Charles Hailes.

November 14, 1605. Newcastle. The English Commissioners to the Council. Some of the Grahams have been apprehended at Newcastle. We have proceeded against two for leaving the King's service. The prisoners here say that of the seventy-two sent to Flushing there are at most fourteen remaining there. Sir H. Leigh has had no great success in apprehending them. He alleges that they flee into Scotland. Hutchin Graham's example has not been followed. Four notable thieves were executed at the gaol delivery at Carlisle, and ten at Newcastle. The King's pardon to particular malefactors encourages others. In our opinion the provinces within our commission ought to be exempted from any general pardon by special proviso. English malefactors are received in Scotland, especially in the west.

November 14, 1605. Newcastle. The English Commissioners to Sir Roger Wilbraham. George Graham of Burnfoote did not any service to the King on the borders in the apprehension of Sandie Rynion. When all the Grahams were commanded to come before us at Carlisle, he stood out and caused his sureties, two honest men, to forfeit a thousand pound bond, to their utter undoing. He stands outlawed of felony, and, as we are informed, he was in "the ill weeke" at the spoiling of Orton, the burning of Richard Johnson's house, and the spoiling of Little Orton, in the first year of his Majesty's reign.

November 12, 1605. Newcastle. Sir W. Selby and Sir W. Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. On Sunday, the 10th instant, on our way from Carlisle to Newcastle, we first heard of the horrible and graceless conspiracy against the King and the whole state. Knowing that William Ord, a pensioner of 20d. per diem in Berwick, had the keeping of the Earl of Northumberland's castle of Prudhoe (having been preferred to that place by Thomas Percy the traitor) and had become a recusant, we thought good to search the said castle, before going to Newcastle. We found none there except servants. Ord had left on the previous day. He was as likely as any to conceal the said Percy. There is not a more suspicious place in this country. We only learned that Percy was there a fortnight before.
November 12, 1605. [Newcastle.] The English Commissioners to the Earl of Salisbury. The postmaster of this place has received a packet from George Whithead, captain for the Earl of Northumberland in the castle of Tynemouth. After some conference, we have thought it our duty to send it to you, so that if the said Earl be in his Majesty's good favour it may be delivered to him, otherwise that it may be disposed of as shall seem best to you.
November 14, 1605. Newcastle. Sir W. Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. I have heard of a warrant directed to Sir Henry Widdrington by the Lords of the Council, authorising him to take into his hands the castles of Alnwick, Tynemouth, and Cockermouth, in the county of Northumberland, as being in the custody of Thomas Percy the traitor, or of his adherents. The matter for Cockermouth is mistaken. It is in the south-western part of Cumberland, nearly forty miles from any part of Northumberland, and in my custody, who, I trust, shall never be so far destitute of God's grace as to become an adherent of that vile traitor. The castle itself is for the most part ruinous. My wife's son dwells in the gate-house, by my direction. About fourteen years since, the Earl of Northumberland made me Lieutenant of the Honour of Cockermouth, with a fee of 10l. With this office I have the keeping of the castle, which is situate within two miles of my house. The dispossessing me of this castle, which is of small moment either for offence or defence, will breed in the heads of the people an opinion that some suspicion is held of my loyalty, and disgrace me in the government of these parts.

November 14, 1605. Newcastle. The English Commissioners to [the Earl of Salisbury?]. Demand for 28l. 4s. laid out by them in the conveyance of fifty Grahams to Brill, and seventy-two to Flushing.
November 15, 1605. Gunnerton. Sir Henry Widdrington to Sir W. Lawson. I cannot meet you at Carlisle according to promise. I desire you to make known to the Sheriff of the county and the justices of the peace, such matters as I have made you already acquainted with, for the apprehending of the persons named in the proclamation. As you are interested in Cockermouth Castle, I doubt not that you will have due regard thereof until I may be with you.
November 15, 1605. Carlisle. The justices of the peace of Cumberland and Westmoreland to the Council. These counties are quiet, and there is no likelihood that the traitor Thomas Percy, or any of his adherents, can work any tumult or trouble there.

November 16, 1605. Carlisle. Sir W. Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. Since Thomas Percy became a Papist, he has not cared to converse but with men of his own quality, and others of a better religion have not been desirous to have much to do with him. He has not commonly resorted hither, save at the times of the Earl of Northumberland's audit. The Grahams are in hopes of a pardon at the end of this Parliament. I was hardly able to undergo the journey from Newcastle to Carlisle yesterday.

Constancy in such proceedings will, I trust, bring a blessing of peace and truth to that poor country. I hope that you will come here a few days before the 21st of January.
January 13, 1605 [-6]. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to the Earl of Salisbury. Few or none of the Grahams have been apprehended since the 14th of November, although many more have returned, to the terror of the better sort here. If the Grahams were not, these parts would be as free from blood and theft as Yorkshire. As their business is not settled in any good sort, I pray for directions about going or staying. I am somewhat better, but I wish to be spared from so long a journey. I cannot offer sufficient thanks for your favour concerning Cockermouth Castle.
January 13, 1605 [-6]. Carlisle. Sir W Lawson to Mr [John] Taylor. I condole with you the loss of so great a friend as your master, the Earl [of Cumberland]. It is fitter for me to stay in the country than to travel to London. If the Earl of Salisbury think fit that I should undergo the office of Sheriff for this year, I shall do my best to discharge the same, although I have no great reason to desire it.

I cannot but commend the Scottish Commissioners for their care for his Majesty's service. If a convenient number of men from both sides of the border, inured from their youth upwards to blood and theft, were picked out or otherwise sent away, the rest would be the sooner reclaimed.

We and others, after the death of the late Queen, disorderly and tumultuously assembled with all the warlike force and power that we could, and invaded the inland part of the eastern side of Cumberland, and spoiled many Englishmen, with fire, sword, robbery, and murder. Some among us of evil judgment had persuaded us that until your Majesty was a crowned King in England, the laws of the kingdom ceased and were of no force, and that all offences done in the meantime were not punishable. We have deserved death and the confiscation of our lands and goods. Many of us have wives and children who may be able, with better education, to do good service to your Majesty in some other parts of your dominions. We therefore pray that we may be relegated and banished, as an evil colony, to some other parts of your kingdom, there to spend the residue of our days in sorrowing for our offences. We bind ourselves and our posterity to be of good behaviour towards all your subjects.

March 20, 1605 [-6]. Hexham. The English Commissioners to the Earl of Salisbury. Many of the Grahams returned from the cautionary towns, some fugitives of that name, and divers of those who broke out of Carlisle Castle, remained dispersed in Esk and in the adjoining countries of Scotland, with desire rather to hide themselves than to do much hurt. When Sir H. Leigh and Sir W. Cranston, with thirty soldiers, came to garrison in Esk, they withdrew themselves among the Carlisles, the Johnstones, and other families related to them. After Sir W. Cranston's retirement to his own house, many of them returned. Some thirteen have been apprehended, and the rest have been forced to leave Esk. The people of Cumberland abhor and fear the name of Graham. We have required Sir W. Cranston to return to his place of garrison, and given the like order to Mr. Leigh in the place of his father. The state of Cumberland and Northumberland has grown better since the issue of the Commission. There is no stealing save of trifles, and this is as rare as in other shires in England. We have advised the Earl of Cumberland that his grounds should not be farmed to the wives and friends of the Grahams. We have committed to Carlisle Castle divers of the Grahams who have neither been offenders of late years, nor returned from the cautionary towns. Their restraint will not a little bridle their friends who are out. We desire that felonies committed in the middle shires should be exempted from pardon by a special proviso. We enclose several lists.
(1.) The names of the Grahams returned from the cautionary towns without licence--fifty in all.
(2.) The names of the Grahams returned from the cautionary towns with good passports--eight in all, three of them prisoners in Carlisle Castle.
(3.) The names of the Grahams dead since their return from the cautionary towns--six in all.
(4.) The names of the Grahams committed for felony for departing from the service--two in all.
(5.) The names of the Grahams returned from the cautionary towns with counterfeit licences--two in all.
(6.) The names of the Grahams who have good passports at large without return. Matthew Graham, alias Plump, and young Hutchin Graham, a prisoner in Carlisle Castle, the ringleader of the first nineteen fugitives, who would not go into the low countries.
(7.) The names of the heads of the Grahams committed to Carlisle Castle upon suspicion of giving "recett" to their friends:--Walter Graham of Netherby and William Graham of Rosetrees, and six others.
(8.) The names of the Grahams and other fugitives apprehended by Sir Henry Leigh between February 18 and March 13, and sent to Carlisle:--Alexander Graham, alias Bell Sandie, Matthew Graham, alias Plump, and four others, three of whom were of the twenty-nine who broke the Castle.
(9.) The names of the Grahams and other fugitives apprehended by Sir W. Cranston since February 18, but not sent to Carlisle according to directions--eight in all, among whom is John Graham, alias Jock of the Pear-tree, a notable thief, "none of his name worse."
(10.) The names of the condemned prisoners who broke Carlisle Castle, and are now in custody--ten in all.

They give an instance of one Michael Davison condemned in January last for certain felonies and burglaries committed twelve years ago, when he was but twelve years of age, and of a cousin german of his lately executed for the same offence.

March 27, 1606. Cranston. Sir W Cranston to the English Commissioners. I returned out of Esk because I found it unprofitable to stay there. I will return as soon as my health permits me to travel. You will find after experience that his Majesty could be better served with less stir. I was forced to admit outlaws to bond because my company was dispersed in two or three parts, and I had not the commodity of a gaol. After a lawful advertisement I will present such of yours as fell into my hands, or else a sufficient penalty. As for such as offended in Scotland I will await the advice of "the conjunct commission." If you will needs be commanders, I desire that your discretion may appear as well as your authority. Think not that my body can be everywhere to do all your services. Our own courts approach. I am charged with the apprehension of the Grahams and several other duties. None come to me with armour. For me to ride to their several houses would be an infinite travel.

Mr Henry Leigh has a warrant to apprehend Thomas [Hetherington] of Holesheils for Hector [Armstrong] of Twedon, who was slain by the garrisons of horsemen and footmen under the conduct of Captain Reed and Constable Ord [in or about August, 1603], they being in Lyddesdale by command of Sir Richard Musgrave, the deputy to the late Lord Lieutenant. The killing of him was the best service that was done for the border of England these twenty years, for he was a principal murderer, a great and common thief, a spoiler, and a leader of the rest. If the Commissioners of Scotland shall so earnestly seek for redress of such a notorious thief, what good shall we expect of them? Those whom they complain of will be ready to answer for the fact before the King and Council. "The poore man Holesheiles is marvellously frighted with feare to enter into Scotland," and Lord Cumberland's business is thereby left undone.

In the roll of names of such as you desired to be sent to Dumfries and Jedburgh, there are those of some men of good quality, free from suspicion of theft. The matters alleged against them were done under the government of the late Earl of Cumberland, by command of his under-officers. We are enjoined by the Council to forbear to call such in question. If, therefore, any of them are now sent to you, I doubt not that you will forbear to proceed against them.

Most of these offenders have been so rooted in their "desolate" kind of life that it is almost impossible to reform their disorder.

At the last gaol delivery, on the 24th of April, there were but two found guilty, the one of petty larceny, and the other of a small felony, who had his [benefit of] clergy. Northumberland is not altogether so free. One was executed and the other reprieved. If the runagate Grahams were apprehended and brought to justice, these countries would continue peaceable.
May 5, 1606. Appleby. Sir W Lawson to the Bishop of Carlisle. I send this to London by Sir Edward Musgrave. If the Grahams could be apprehended, or banished from Esk, this country would become as peaceful as any other. There are bad men on the other side. At the last sessions of the peace I earnestly moved, in accordance with your letter, to have the bridge built of stone, but few or none were inclined thereto, as the charge would be at least 800l., and there is no certainty of the continuance of the water in its present course.

N.D. The Earl of Dunbar to Sir W Lawson. The King at my last parting from his presence, and by letter since the 1st inst., has commanded me to have special care of the peaceable state of the late borders, by apprehension of the disobedient Grahams, the twenty-nine condemned men who broke Carlisle Castle, and other fugitives, and their abettors. I am informed that Sir Richard Lowther of Cumberland gives "recett" to the Grahams. I pray you to make diligent search in his house about daybreak on the 20th inst., and to bring any fugitives whom you may find there to Carlisle that night, where Sir W Selby will meet you. The good of this service consists in secrecy. Although I am not acquainted with you, the good opinion held of you by his Majesty and others makes me confident to trouble you with this business.

I am ready to go towards the waste of Tindale, where there is a great assembly under colour of a great hunting.

Six English Grahams and William Armstrong, son of John Armstrong of Kinmout, one of the condemned men who broke Carlisle Castle, have been carried into Scotland. We have received instruction concerning them from the Council, and we therefore pray that they may be safely sent to Carlisle gaol. We also desire the delivery of three other Armstrongs, breakers of Carlisle Castle. Sir W Cranston has not delivered the prisoners for whom we applied to him. We desire that you will by your own authority cause Sir W Cranston to return to the Hallowes or to some other convenient place near Esk. Finding our own commands not well obeyed, we think it vain to trouble him by writing. If you prevail as little, we shall be compelled to complain further.

We have sent John Musgrave of Plumpton with fifteen horsemen to garrison in Esk, and have written to Sir W Cranston to lie there also with his fifteen. We went thither with the Sheriff on the 30th of May, and remained until the Earl of Cumberland's officers had taken peaceable possession of divers tenements within his grants, returning the same evening to Carlisle. No resistance was made. We have left to your consideration certain grounds reputed to be part of his Majesty's manor, and not within the forest of Nicholl granted to the said Earl. A house called Brackenhill is challenged by the widow of Richard Graham lately deceased, as purchased by his father from Sir Thomas Dacres. We shall proceed against the Grahams according to your instructions. Richard Graham of Randlinton has broken prison. We have reprieved Arthur Graham. There is no likelihood of getting a convenient number of them to send away. There are not now remaining in Esk or within the Earl of Cumberland's grants much above thirty Grahams, married or unmarried, fit to be sent away to make up the number of those that are returned or dead. Most of these absent themselves, preferring, it seems, to die at home with shame than to serve his Majesty abroad with credit. Hutchin Graham had a commission under the privy seal for the apprehension of Sandies Rynion. We hope that Jock of the Pear-tree and Jocks Ritchie will be sent down from London, together with William Bell, alias Cutler. Jock of the Pear-tree is one of the five who betrayed Sandies Rynion, and so within the remission. Five worse men cannot be found among all the Grahams than those who are within the remission. The country continues peaceable.

The Council to the Bishop of Carlisle and the rest of the Commissioners. The acquittal of twenty-three persons out of the twenty-seven arraigned at Carlisle and Newcastle, will make them bolder. If you will certify the Council in Scotland that only two out of fifty Scotsmen accused for recent felonies have been sent to you, they will doubtless take order for the furtherance of the King's service. We wish all means to be used for the apprehension of the Grahams who returned from the cautionary towns. Let a pardon be drawn for those mentioned in your letter of the 3rd inst. It appears that divers of the Grahams and other surnames were formerly planted in the province of Connaught, where they have grown to be men of good desert and quality. Sir Ralph Sidley being likely to have the disposing of a great quantity of land called Roscommon (Rose common), is well able to place forty or fifty households there. He will give you information as to the commodities of the place, and the fertility of the ground, which will doubtless be welcome to those who are threatened with the hands of justice. All severity should be laid upon such as are unwilling to go, the greater part of them having deserved punishment. The country should contribute towards providing them with a stock at the first plantation. We will deal with the King for the charges of their transportation.

Note of the particular misdemeanours of Hutchin Graham  D PEN/216/f. 125  [n.d.]

Contents:
1. On Monday after the death of the late Queen, he neglected to stay his friends from their invasion, although admonished to do so by the Bishop of Carlisle, who saw them from the ramparts of the castle. 2. On Tuesday following he brought one hundred and forty of his kinsmen and friends, English and Scottish, to the town of Cargo, near Carlisle, and provided them with victuals for themselves and their horses, free of cost, at the charge of the town. He had for many years taken this town into his protection, receiving from each husbandman four pecks of malt yearly for black mail, these pecks being of Carlisle measure, 20 gallons to the bushel. 3. On the Wednesday following, he crossed the Eden into Grinsdale, where he and his company as men of war erected two "pensills" of linen cloth on the tops of lances. 4. On that day he and his company, armed with jacks, spears, pistols, and steel caps, assaulted Capt. Bowyer, or his lieutenant, and his soldiers. 5. Seeing a company of the townsmen of Carlisle coming to the rescue of his Majesty's soldiers, he and his company went westward. They spoiled a place called Bow, robbing men in the way, and afterwards spoiled the town of Orton, where they burned the house of Johnston and took prisoners. 6. He went back to Cargo, and there divided such spoil as was brought in by his company, he and young [Graham of] Netherby as captains taking an eighth of the whole spoil. 7. Having obtained from the King a promise of remission, he has not made restitution to the parties grieved. He refused to go to the Low Countries, and became a ringleader of nineteen others of his name, who fled into Scotland. Subscribed by the English Commissioners.
Certificate concerning ninety Grahams and their families dwelling upon Esk and Leven. Twenty-three are worth 20l. a year and upwards, and are declared fit to be transplanted. Among these are:- Walter Graham of Netherby, his wife and eight children, of whom the eldest is an outlaw, and the second a disorderly person; William Graham Rose-trees, his wife and six children; Hutchin Graham, alias Young Hutchin, his wife and three children; one Graham at Flushing and another at Brill. Eleven worth 20l. a year and upward are fugitives. Seven worth 10l. a year and upward are fugitives. Six worth 10l. a year and upward are declared fit to be transplanted. Eleven are not worth 10l. a year. Six are cottingers and outlaws. Twenty-six are cottingers answerable and poor people.

The English Commissioners to the Council. We have called before us those of the Grahams who are confined to the city of Carlisle as pledges for their children and friends, and they, after some deliberation, yielded to the proposal for their transportation into Ireland. Peartree and Jocks Ritchie, prisoners in the Castle, immediately petitioned to be sent thither also, and we have accepted their request in consideration of the great number of that name who by their means might be drawn to be transported. They have promistd to bring in their friends, fugitives, within eight days. Hutchin Graham, a man of the greatest mind and means among them, did not petition, relying on the King's remission. We called him to the bar publicly, and told him that he had obtained it upon a false suggestion, as he was not at the taking of Sandies Rynion, and that he had not fulfilled the conditions by good behaviour since. An hour later he also petitioned. The country is at peace. Sir Ralph Sidley has told us that each house-holder to be transported should have at least 20l., wherewith to maintain himself until the land in Ireland should yield profit. We find that no sufficient sum can be drawn from the benevolence of the country.

At the last gaol delivery on the 28th, we executed none of them, and we hope to end the business without blood. We send a list of the gentlemen and freeholders of Cumberland who have offered to contribute to the transportation of the Grahams, but we still think that a competent sum cannot be raised in this manner. Workington and Ravenglass would afford the most ready passage into Ireland. The want of money for stock is now the chief obstacle.

I can prove that one Archibald Mackwittie, a Scotsman, dwelling with one Herbert Maxwell under Lord Maxwell, has stolen my cattle. I pray for his delivery, and that of one Archibald Armstrong, brother of Andrew Whithaugh, at whose house five of my cattle were found yesterday. If such open felonies escape unpunished, lamentable will be the state of these parts.

The Commissioners to the Earl of Salisbury. We have sent the chief Grahams to the port of Workington, under the conduction of the Sheriff of Cumberland, with the assistance of the county, and of Mr. John Musgrave's horsemen. We have not been able to send away fifty families, because some of the poorer sort who had yielded themselves into transportation, at the instant thereof fled, out of weariness of their bondage to their masters, the chief Grahams. There are not now left between Leven and Sarke more than three Grahams of ability, of whom two are more than eighty years of age. All the notorious offenders whose manner terrified all peaceable men, are gone away. Some of their wives who cannot go now will follow in the spring. By their clamours and our entreaties they have been allowed to gain the corn, hay, and grass of this season without any allowence of rent to the Earl of Cumberland, so that he can have little or no profit of his "signiorie" this year. We find Sir R Sidley well affected to use the Grahams well, if they shall so deserve. We have committed to him the 300l. levied for them from the country. There yet remains almost 200l. to be levied, which may be used either to transport others, or to increase the stock of those now transported. Although Esk, Sarke, and Leven are purged of evil men, there remain others fit to follow in Bewcastle and Gillesland. The Grahams carry with them many horses and much household stuff. There are yet remaining outlaws the sons of Walter Graham of Netherby, and divers others. Certificates concerning certain prisoners.

November 11, 1606. Rose Castle. The Bishop of Carlisle and Sir W Lawson to the Council. Two of the Grahams lately transported into Ireland have returned, of whom we have already apprehended one. We hear sundry rumours that many of the most offensive persons among them have landed in Scotland. The Graham now in prison says that they left because they could get none of the money entrusted to Sir R Sidley for their relief. We beseech you to examine Sir Ralph as to this at his next being at court.

November 9, 1606. Skipton Castle. Andrew Oglethorpe to Sir W Lawson. Concerning the claims of the Fosters.
November 22, 1606. Carlisle. The Bishop of Carlisle, Sir W Lawson, and J Pennington to [the Council]. Sir W Selby has been long absent. We have never had the aid of the horseman under his charge. Sir R Delaval and Mr Grey cannot at present discharge their service. After the 11th of December we will send you the names of those who refuse to contribute. The Captain of Bewcastle readily undertakes the apprehension of offenders within that charge, but he slenderly performs it. How he has stood affected to the good of his country may be gathered by his affinity, in that he matched one of his base daughters with "that bloodie and theevish clanne of the Armestrongs of Whithaughe in Liddesdale, by whom and their allies many horrible spoiles and cruell murthers have been committed." His house has been known as "an usuall receptakle" of those infamous sons of Sandies Rynion, the murderers of Sir John Carmichael. Three of the Grahams are now in prison. Since the beginning of this service, the principal let has been the want of apprehension of offenders. The number of outlaws is great, as appears by the schedule. Our garrison is only fifteen. We pray that the ten under Sir W. Selby may be sent hither, the winter season and the "nakedness" of the woods ministering the best opportunity of pursuit.

Those Grahams who remain here complain that Sir Ralph Sidley does not perform his covenant with those in Ireland. If this be so, hunger and poverty will thrust them into these parts again.

N.D. Lord William Howard to Sir W Lawson. It was resolved by some that you should be discharged of all offices. You now stand charged with double offices. It was decreed at Carlisle that the Commission should be dissolved, and that a new Commission should be granted to one who should have authority both for England and Scotland. Under him Sir W Selby was to have the sole government in Northumberland, and Mr Thomas Salkeld in Cumberland. Mr Thomas Salkeld spoke openly. He expected no cross but by my means, which were not wanting. Remarks about the offences imputed to Christopher Langholme and Humphrey Bell.

We have therefore appointed the Earl of Dunbar, who is a councillor in both our kingdoms, and likely to be often at Berwick, to resolve any difficulties that may arise in the execution of your service.

December 24, 1606. Whitehall. The Council to the Commissioners. Those Grahams who have returned from Ireland deserve the least favour. You are to proceed with them in justice, both for their own offences, and for example's sake. Those who returned from the cautionary towns, and those fugitives who now voluntarily enter themselves, may have the favour of transplantation into Ireland if they give good security for their speedy departure thither. Let justice proceed against those who do not give good caution for their departure, and those who are still fugitives. We have written to the Lord Deputy [of Ireland] desiring him to deal earnestly with Sir R Sidley for such good usage as may encourage the Grahams to continue there. We have written to Sir W Selby to send the ten horsemen under his charge to Carlisle, according to your desire. You may call the Captain of Bewcastle before you, and tell him that it is not the King's pleasure that he should by himself command all the inhabitants within that precinct as he has done heretofore in troublesome times, and that he must not interrupt the execution of your warrants.

It is doubted whether Sir W Lawson and Sir W Selby, being appointed High Sheriffs of Cumberland and Northumberland, may lawfully sit in judgment in their several counties. At all gaol deliveries, except when Sir Charles Hales was here, Sir W Lawson has given both the charge and the judgment. No other of the Commissioners is willing to undergo that burden.

I would have been very glad to have seen you in my poor house, but sorry that you should lose so much labour in this cold weather and in such foul ways. I was away "fishing," and I took as many as I could get. I was in hopes to have taken Antons Edward himself, but, for want of a better, was glad to take his son Thomas, Gifford [Chris. Urwin], and Jock Stowlugs, the last but not the least in villainy. I desire you to keep him for a jewel of high price. Pray cause the records to be searched. If you find matter sufficient to hang the other two, "hould up your finger" and they shall be delivered. I confess myself a southern novice.

A robbery has been committed on the person of Richard Craven, deputy-receiver of his Majesty's revenues in Westmoreland and Cumberland, and above 200l. has been taken from him besides his books, bills, and bonds. Thomas Musgrave, son of Sir Richard Musgrave of Norton, co. York, John Musgrave late of Fairbank, co. Cumberland, and Christopher Pickering late of Crosby Ravensworth, co. Westmoreland, both household servants of Sir Richard Musgrave of Edenhall, co. Cumberland, are believed to have committed the robbery. All three are said to have fled into Yorkshire. They are very young men.

John Armstrong, alias Stowlugs, Thomas Armstrong, alias Edward's Tom, Christopher Urwin, alias Gifford Carleton, Robert Graham, and William Graham, alias Flaughtaile, have been tried and executed. The third of these was a fugitive from Brill, returned from Ireland. The last was a most infamous murderer, returned from Ireland. He was taken in the Bishopric of Durham by Lord William Howard, whom we still find a great furtherer of justice. The peace of these parts, which was reasonably well settled, is much disturbed by the robbery of Mr Craven on the 13th inst. on his travel between Penrith and Kendal. We have reason to believe that John Musgrave of Catterlen caused the robbery to be done. By his own confession he was with the suspected robbers the night before at Penrith, and he harboured two of them the night after in his own house. We have committed him to ward.

It is thought that they bestow the flesh underground or in some other secret place. The pelts, after pulling them, they throw away, and the bones they burn. If they chance to be taken, there is nothing to be found with them but suet, or wool. Though they have no sheep or goods of their own, they fare as well on this trade as those who have good farms. This country stands altogether upon the flocks of sheep. Abraham Singleton, a notorious thief, is now in prison.

Born in 1807 Edward was the son of William Horsman of Stirling and Jane, third daughter of Sir John Dalrymple Bart. He was educated at Rugby and Trinity College, Cambridge.
Edward Horsman successfully stood as a moderate Liberal for Cockermouth in 1836 and remained as M P for Cockermouth until 1852 when he was defeated at the general election. He was re-elected as M P for Stroud in 1853 where he remained M P to 1868. From 1869 to 1876, the year of his death, he was M P for Liskeard.

Letter from the Duke of Newcastle  D PEN/1745/19  9 Nov. 1745

Contents:
Apologises for delayed reply to letter of the 29th past; as has "had a letter from some of the Deputy Lieutenants of Cumberland about a Scotchman secured there, and no mention made of the Militia", hopes Lord Lonsdale has already solved the problem; thinks it "highly reasonable" that the public should pay for them. Has received the letter of 7th sent by express, with its enclosed papers, and has laid them before the King; has since heard from Berwick "that the Party at Kelso are turned off to Jedborough on their way to Carlisle" and clearly (despite "General Handasyd's" doubts) mean to invade England. The King has ordered Sir John Ligonier to march into Cheshire or Lancs." with 12 or 13 Regiments of Foot (7 of which came lately from Flanders) with the 2 new-raised Regiments of Horse, and Bland's Dragoons, [and he] will begin his March in a Day or Two" to block "the Rebels" (if they should have escaped Mr. Wade). Mr. Wade has stopped at Newcastle "upon the late Motion of the Rebels" thence to "march immediately to Them", whatever route they take, with full powers to act as fit. News daily of embarkings of [Jacobite] troops at Dunkirk, e.g. Lord John Drummond's Regiment, but due to lack of large ships can only be small-scale embarkings. Possibly they plan a full-scale naval invasion of the west of Britain from Brest,

Letter from Lord Loudon and Duncan Forbes [of Culloden] (Lord President) to Field Marshall Wade  D PEN/1745/24  13 Nov. 1745

Contents:
sending despatches for London "by the Saltash Sloop to Newcastle" - news from the Inverness area: no further Highlander from north of Atholl (except the Macphersons of Auny with 300 men from Badenoch) have joined the [Jacobites]; that 200 "of the Tribes dependant on the Clanchattan" with others from "Braemeer" and elsewhere, are at Perth awaiting further arrivals from the north; that 150-160 Mackenzies ("seduced by the Earl of Cromerty") have marched up the north side of Loch Ness, and awaited 500-600 Frazers under the Master of Lovat (who may not come). "We have 700 Highlanders in Pay at Inverness"; possibly more will join. Hopes of reopening the contact with Forts Augustus and William and to march troops into Banff and Aberdeenshire to prevent Lord Lewis Gordon's recruiting "which goes on but heavily at present." "We wish you heartily good Success",

Postscript: Last Friday "Macleod with 400 of his kindred joined us": hopes to block the Frasers, not yet gone. "There is a great fall of Snow on the Ground", 17 Nov. [1745]

Letter from Thomas Ramsden p.p. by the Duke of Newcastle  D PEN/1745/25  14 Nov. 1745

Contents:
Letter sent already by the Duke, dated 13th. No further news of "the Rebels' other Motions", but news by the Dutch Mail of only 800 men embarked at Dunkirk, possibly for Scotland to render the Dutch troops with Wade useless. The French are fitting out 12 men-of-war at Brest, perhaps to intercept our Indiamen, now in Ireland. "Lt. Gen. Handasyd is gone from Berwick with 2 Battalions of Foot, and the Dragoons, which were in the late action [Prestonpans] under Sir J. Cope," to retake Edinburgh, and to forestall the [Jacobites] if they return to Scotland; postscript that the enclosed letter is "a circular" to all the Lords Lieutenant of Lancs, Ches, Derbyshire, Staffs, Shropshire, the North Wales counties and Yorkshire"

Contents:
Their version of the surrender and its circumstances: fatigue due to perpetual alarms; non-appearance of Wade; mass desertions; prior surrender of the Mayor and Corporation; despite Col. Durand's opposition, surrender forced on the officers; only 70 invalids left in the Castle for its defence. Mr. Dalston, the bearer, will explain further, (copy) Penrith

Penrith

Letter from Lord Lonsdale to the Duke of Devonshire  D PEN/1745/29  19 Nov. 1745

Contents:
has just received an Express from Penrith saying that yesterday afternoon a Rebel quarter-master came to the town demanding billets for two squadrons of 250 horses arriving that night, and for 8000 men arriving next day. The horses on arrival were counted and were half the number stated. Thinks that if the 8000 do come, this is a sure pointer to s. march south. Where is Sir John Ligonier? "The post roads are so cross" that it is doubtful whether he can be contacted by express letter. "Perhaps your Grace may do it more surely" (19th c. copy) Byram

Letter from the Duke of Newcastle  D PEN/1745/30  19 Nov. 1745

Contents:
has received the letter of 14th. with its enclosed intelligence from Penrith that the Rebels were returning to Carlisle, and has laid it immediately before the King; also the letter of 16th (received yesterday morning), "with an Account, That the Town of Carlisle surrender'd on Friday, the 15th; But that the Governor of the Castle was determined to hold out to the last Extremity." The King regrets that he could send no assistance to "so loyal and so zealous a Town as Carlisle", but assistance for the North can only be had from Wade's army, and Wade has (due to distance) full power to conduct things as he thinks fit. Has had a letter from Wade yesterday morning, dated last Friday, that he intended to march next day from Newcastle against the Rebels; hopes that he will arrive in time to save the Castle.
"The King is very sensible of your Lordship's constant attention to His Service"; asks for news of the Rebels' movements, and requests that it be sent also to Wade, Ligonier, and the Commanding Officer at Chester. Let the news be prompt and accurate. Regrets that Lord Lonsdale's letter urging a clause on indemnifying the J.P.s of Cumberland and Westmorland to be added to the Militia Act, before it received the Royal Assent, came too late, but says that "there are some general Words in the Act, which answer the Purpose"; encloses a printed copy of it. Has this morning heard from Lt. Gen. Handasyd of his arrival at Edinburgh on the 14th
Whitehall

Letter from General Wade  D PEN/1745/31  22 Nov. 1745

Contents:
"The Regiments that landed here left their Sick, which has occasion'd a most raging Fever"; 12-14 funerals a day; weather uncertain (frost one day, rain the next), making "the Distemper more fatal"
Postscript, same day: news from an officer at Edinburgh: Lord Cromarty and his son have joined the Rebels and are marching south with 2450 men, as follows:
Lord Cromarty & son - 450 men
The Master of Lovat and [the] Frazers of Inverlochy - 700
The Chisholms, - 100
"McClouds of Raza", - 150
McKenzies of Fairburn, - 300
Grants of Glenmerrion and Urquhart, - 100
Ross of Pitcarry, - 300
Lodwick Cameron, Lockheil's Uncle", - 200
"Stewart of Inner Mill and Glenco" - 150
2450
The officer thinks this list "somewhat Exagerated, but these people are Actually upon their March to Perth." "On the other side the President [Duncan Forbes] is gathering together His Majesty's friends, and McCloud has actually joyn'd him with near 600 Men," (copy) Berwick

Letter from the Earl of Derby to the Duke of Richmond  D PEN/1745/32  24 Nov. 1745

Contents:
Thanks for letter of 23rd informing him of "the cantonment of his Majesty's Forces about Litchfield", about which he had known privately for some days; in view of this, and of the Rebels! approach, he met the Deputy Lieutenants and some of the Militia officers near Liverpool to plan action; sole course seemed to have their arms secured on board a ship; Secretary of State notified by express. As the militia is wholly of raw untrained foot-soldiers, with no experienced officers, how can it hope to block an army seven or eight times as large? Liverpool is untenable, and there is no refuge locally to retire to. Col. Graham is now pulling down Warrington Bridge (i.e. "the pass for us from these parts" to Stone, Lichfield, and Chester) by Lord Cholmondely's order, and then will retire to reinforce Chester's garrison. He himself is going to Manchester, thence to London, since all is lost in South Lancashire, which "too much abounds" with papists, (19th c. copy) Knowsley

Letter from General Wade  D PEN/1745/33  28 Nove. 1745

Contents:
Has received several letters, but being on the march has been unable to reply. Thinks the Rebels are hastening towards North Wales before the Duke of Cumberland is ready, but thinks that if their aid from abroad fails them, "they are moving on to their destruction." Has heard from Gen. Handasyd at Edinburgh that part of Lord John Drummond's regiment landed on the 23rd at Montrose, and the rest of it was thought to have landed at Stonehaven and Peterhead. Fears that "our Squadron on that Coast" dislikes cruising in bad weather, hence the landings. Gen. Handasyd plans to block the Forth at Stirling, and Loudoun and Macleod in the North, and Campbell in Argyll, are active, as well as 2000 men raised to defend Edinburgh and Glasgow (1000 men for each city); foresees civil war in Scotland. Wade's troops are now encamped at Percebridge; thence for Wetherby on Saturday, to arrive on Tuesday next; cover from cavalry (via York to Tadcaster) and the Dragoons (to Knaresborough), the whole to unite within a few hours and march by the sole route for artillery into Lancashire; thereafter, our moves depend on those of the Rebels. Wishes that the rumour of Admiral Vernon's meeting of a French Fleet was true.
Postscript: letter received (copy enclosed) confirming Drummond's landing after 25 days at sea, and [telling of] a man who came with them, captured, "in his pocket was found a Route from Carlisle to London, which he had brought with him fromFrance", Aske

Letter from W Armitage, [agent at Lowther]  D PEN/1745/34  29 Nov., 1745

Contents:
Penrith's reception of "the Rebels", who got wind of the ambush set by the townsmen at Lowther Bridge "since they were not allow'd to do it in Town", and got to Lowther, which they plundered; Penrith, hearing this, armed and rode out 100 strong, led by Armitage. As the "Iron Gates" were locked, he led them "down the Paddocks at back of the Stables"; calm still night; the enemy were listening, but were rushed and ten captured; the chiefs escaped, 6 to the Kendal road, 6 for Carlisle, on foot, pursued by the whole district. Has sent the prisoners and allbut one of the wounded to Wade; the exception, a French engineer, to Appleby, being too ill to go further. Fears reprisals, though this success should raise local initiative; urges despatch of a few soldiers to train them. Will move the best horses over Stanemore, and keep the gates locked and guarded. Asks for further instructions. Penrith eager to attack, Lowther

Letter from Thomas Pattinson  D PEN/1745/35  30 Nov. 1745

Contents:
Hearing of your last coming to his friend at Wigton, "went there yesterday and found it with the enclosed. For what reason the Militia Gent[lemen] declared of[f], when the Enemy was past, I can't possibly Account.. for", but, hearing of "our Division" "the Rebels" returned, throwing Carlisle into panic. "9 out of 10 Townsmen stood out to the last." "There are 200 old, young, and sick men in the Castle" (desertions daily); main body about 8000, but 2000 only are able and willing to fight. Asks for advice for the Mayor and himself, what to do - resign office and leave, or stay in Carlisle.
Postscript requesting any reply to be sent to the Postmaster of Penrith, and its contents communicated to the Duke of Newcastle, [Carlisle]

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/36  9 Dec. 1745

Contents:
His Royal Highness [the Duke of Cumberland] is pursuing the retreating Jacobites, though their route from Derby is as yet not clear; he is marching to Macclesfield, and has written to Wade, to concert the harassments. Aim is to stop them getting between the Duke of Cumberland and London.
Lord Lonsdale's news and advice much wanted, Lichfield

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/37  12 Dec. 1745

Contents:
Since signing his letter to you this evening, his Royal Highness has heard that the Duke of Perth leaves camp this evening for Scotland via Carlisle. Urges his capture. "The Rebels give out" that their march north is to join up at Carlisle with those since risen there or arrived from France. Hopes Lord Lonsdale may be able to give them "a home blow" and end the affair, Macclesfield

Letter from General Wade  D PEN/1745/38  13 Dec. 1745

Contents:
Received your letter of 12th thismorning on the march, relating the Duke's pursuit of the Rebels, but has heard from His Royal Highness who despairs of catching up with them, and who has ordered his main body to remain near Coventry, "in case of a landing in that part of England". Wade has sent Major General Oglethorpe with 500 horse and dragoons, including the Yorkshire Hunters, to harass lesser groups and stragglers, but fears that the latter will be north of Kendal by now, and the former (sent from Huddersfield yesterday morning) cannot be nearer than Preston. Wade is going to Newcastle as fast as "the bad roads, and this rigorous season will admit of", to forestalla Jacobite descent from Stanemore on that town, despite the wear on his men by long marches etc. in winter, Grange near Wetherby

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/39  14 Dec., 1745

Contents:
Has received your letter of 12th and laid it before His Royal Highness, who thanks you for your service and regrets that your bad state of health prevents your personal attendance on him. His Royal Highness sent you an order two or three days since to harass the retreat, and that the Duke of Perth was going to Scotland to bring their new-raised reinforcements from thence: can he be seized? His Royal Highness is now reinforced by Bligh's battalion from Chester, Sir George's regiment of dragoons, 120 horse and the irregulars from Wade's army under Oglethorpe. Doubts whether these will catch up, "but our light Troops are near." Their rear left Preston yesterday. The people of Liverpool have offered to supply His Royal Highness's army with biscuit, and "hay is ordered from Leverpool to WhiteHaven" Wigan

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/40  15 Dec., 1745

Contents:
His Royal Highness is ordered back to London by the King this morning, on news from Admiral Vernon of a great French invasion preparing at Dunkirk. The four new-raised foot regiments, those of Lord "Sempil" and the Scottish Royal Fusiliers and Cobham's Dragoons "are in these parts already", and with the local forces and Wade nearby, should protect them sufficiently, Preston

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/41  6 December, 1745

Contents:
The King has cancelled High Royal Highness's return to London, requiring back only the battalions round Lichfield and Coventry under Ligonier (except Sempil's and the Scotch Fusiliers). High Royal Highness has marched for Lancaster; early this morning he sent orders to Oglethorpe to advance (with his detachment and 200 dragoons) from Garstang to some convenient place beyond Lancaster; the rest of the cavalry will be tonight at Lancaster; the infantry marches thither from Wigan today. 12 tons of biscuit from Liverpool follows the troops, and hay is ordered from thence to Whitehaven. His Royal Highness will keep Lord Lonsdale informed of his army's movements. Wonders at the fact that the local "fine body of Men" have allowed "the lousy beggarly Mob of Scotch men" to march through unopposed; feels the local gentry are disaffected, as few have "so much as shown themselves to the Duke." The Lord Lieutenant disarmed the militia and has "gone off"; whereas much damage could easily be caused the retreating army if a good lead were given. "Written in great hast[e] to get on Horseback to follow his Royal Highness. God and our dangers route us out of our Lethargy," Preston

Letter from Sir Everard Fawkener  D PEN/1745/42  25 Dec., 1745

Contents:
Has received Lord Lonsdale's letters of 17th and 23rd. Has been very busy. Present quarters highly inconvenient for all business. His Royal Highness has outmarched the Rebels, and would have overwhelmed them north of Preston had not his men been exhausted by the bad roads. Lowther mansion and park is now cleared of "them"; this took "a little time", so that darkness fell before Clifton could be attacked, which was easily done by dismounted dragoons (despite the Rebels' strong position) that night; and, as it was "very dark, and the Country much cover'd between Clifton and Penrith", His Royal Highness stayed at Clifton, thence to Penrith next morning, flushing out a rebel ambush in Lowther Park on the way. The main retreat went straight through Carlisle (100 or so stragglers "picked up" locally and sent to various prisons); His Royal Highness has had his own deserters court-martialled and executed. Oglethorpe's movements puzzle him: arrived at Shap, he retired to Orton to lodge, leaving there only at 11 a.m. next morning, so that His Royal Highness arriving at Shap, found himself ahead of his avant garde, and the chance gone of trapping the Rebels jointly between himself and Oglethorpe. His Royal Highness "has shew'd the Nation that they [the Highlanders] are far from being such terrible People." Peace and order prevails locally, despite the scant assistance the government could give. The Duke of Perth is much frightened and the Rebels have divided and gone by Dumfries and Moffat to reunite at Douglas. Edinburgh is in great alarm; part of Wade's army under General Hawley is to be left there. Hawley has gone from His Royal Highness's army this morning to confer with Wade. His Royal Highness is glad to have helped Cumberland, and to have helped save Lowther. He has had to decline staying there, as he will return to London as soon as Carlisle is reduced.
"Our greatest want for this siege [i.e. of Carlisle] is of fascines which advance slowly. We have ten good 18 Pounders from Whitehaven, and some Powder, and We expect to morrow or next day two mortars, some Gunners, and a further supply of Ammunition from Newcastle." 12 tons of Liverpool biscuit brought up, and more can be had from Whitehaven. The Liverpool companies have joined His Royal Highness who has sent back a detachment of 1000 men from Wade under Brigadier Mordaunt, from Newcastle. Hopes the artillery will make short work. The Rebels have only 6 pounders. Confused news from those come from the city; thought that only 400 Rebels within, half being new Lancashire recruits, and "almost all now wear our dress". "Open soft weather" at present. Yorkshire "begins to be easy" as Lord Malton has said that he is going to Town, Blackhall [Outside Carlisle]

Letter from Lord Lonsdale to the Duke of Newcastle  D PEN/1745/43  4 March 1745/[6]

Contents:
Has received the enclosed letter from Major Farrer, an old Dragoons officer who left the Army about two years ago, "and upon this Rebellion served in the Militia at Carlisle" [concerning the surrender of Carlisle]. It is his first such letter, but Lord Lonsdale has already heard some of the details, "the transaction having made a great Noise in the Country." Sends the Duke the letter, as it must be answered, and as the Duke, who should be told of it, will by his advice make the answering more easy
(Copy) [Byram]

Letter from Mountague Farrer  D PEN/1745/44  24 Feb. 1745/6

Contents:
Did all he could to defend the town, as Col. Durard and Captain Gilpin will vouch. Denounces the [Government] troops for plundering his house of £300 worth of goods (he and his family having run "100 yards into the Garden down to the Barn").
After 5 hours plundering by 20 men (4 p.m. - 9 p.m.), they were "Attacked" in the house "by a Serjant and ten men.. from the Guard House.. saying that there was good plunder left"; these swore at the three officers quartered there, and fired into the house, whereupon Farrer sent to Col. Napier (the Duke's aide-de-camp) for help. Napier took a party from the Guardhouse ("no Officer being there") and arrested the plunderers, locked them in the Guardhouse till the Duke left, then tried them but let them go free. Next, Farrer had 30 Dragoons and 42 footsoldiers billeted on him, and 3 officers and their servants in his house; and all his hay was commandeered from his barn (140 cartloads at £12 a cartload), despite hay being "just out of the Gate"; they also turned "my Cows into my Garden" and cut down all his trees. For hay he must give £16 a cartload. The next house (also his) they made stables of, burning several shelves and otherwise damaging. Hopes that Lord Lonsdale will advise him, and that he will lay his case before the Duke of Newcastle and Mr. Pelham, for reparation. He applied to the Duke [of Cumberland] himself, "because I was Aspersed to the Duke as bad as A rebbel for giveing up the Town, which I was not Concerned in either the Capetalation or flagg of Truce which I hear was done by the Mayor." The Duke had him heard "after 3 days waiting", but gave no decision; so that "for seven days and nights I never pulled of[f] my Clothes and visited the Walls and spent in treating the men a great deal of mony"
