Roche, Ald., and the Maior, &c., we find that said Domk. Roche hath honestly demeaned him- self, and had sustained the losses of ~00 pounds ster. ; nevertheless, having consideration of the poverty of the means of the Corporation to support their great charge, and for a full conclusion of all the controversy, we order that the said Dominick Roche and his assigns shall have the benefit of the customs of the ports of the City for one year more, to beg~n at the end of his former years, paying for said year 50 pounds for the use of the Corporation, mz., 20 pounds at Easter, 1634, 20 pounds 15 Aug. that year,. and 10 pounds at Christmas next, and we order an entry to be made in the Court book of the City for performance thereof. WALTER CoPINGER, HENRY GoULD. Upon consideration hereof it is agreed. by the Mayor, &c., that the bye- law made in the time of Andrew Skiddy, Maior, Henry Roberts and Richard Rouse, Sheriffs, for the customs of both gates and the Marine Gate set ~to Dom Roche, Ald., and his assignes~ for the purposes in said bye-law ex- pressed, that said Dominick Roche shall have said customs for the term, for the reasons expressed in said order, and especially as he had a Common Seal granted by the Mayor, &c., for the holding of said customs after the expiration of twelve years, for so long a time as the timber bridges were broken and decayed, which order we confllm in all points. 22-2
