Somerscales offered to draw up the petition and engross it, if Sawre provided the parchment, which was done. Nicholas Taylor returned it to Somerscales to pass to someone in authority; Somerscales was so impressed by the number of signatures that he thought of showing it to Lord Burghley, since it affected the common weal, or to [Thomas, fifth Baron] Burgh, as it affected his lands, but in fact showed it to the Earl of Shrewsbury, who welcomed it as it would help him in another dispute over the weirs near Nottingham.

John [May, Bishop of] Carlisle to the Earl of Shrewsbury, K.G., from Rose [Castle], 22 July 1597, regretting that he is unable to assist the Earl as requested.

(Edmund Lodge, Illustrations of British History (second edition, 1838), ii.508)
Folio 879
The Earl of Shrewsbury to John Tunstead, Bailiff of the High Peak, from Rufford, 9 August 1597, directing him to enforce the payment of the assessment for the repair of Whaley Bridge [cf. folio 823]. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed to be given to Thomas Cooke.

The Earl of Shrewsbury to John Roads, from Worksop, 22 September 1597, complaining of the disorderly behaviour of some of his tenants and servants. As Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Shrewsbury has been asked to take steps to preserve the peace, 1p. Draft. Address.
Folio 885
Thomas Baldwin to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from the Temple, 19 October 1597, remonstrating with the Earl for suing him for £100 upon a bond due to the late Earl. The money came to Baldwin in recompense of service and he thinks that he merited better preferment at the Earl's hands, but if he must have the £100, then Baldwin asks him to take £50 at Michaelmas and £50 at the following Michaelmas. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed. Address in seventh Earl's hand.
Folio 889
William Kniveton and John Manners to the [sixth] Earl of Shrewsbury, from Worksworth, 19 January 1587/8, reporting on a meeting about the state of recusancy in the county of Derbyshire. [John] Harpur wishes to be excused; he has gone to Sir Gervase Clifton, who is dangerously ill. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed.
Folio 893
Henri IV, King of France, to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from the camp at Angier [Angers], 16 July 1597. The death of a dog given him by the Earl has made him wish for another good coursing dog. 1p. French. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed.
Folio 895
John Talbot of Grafton to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from Pepper Hill, 29 January 1597/8, declining to deal further in the dispute between [William] Vessey and [Humphrey] Northall, but pleading for Northall [cf. Lambeth Ms. 702, folios 29 and 37]. 2pp. Endorsed. Address in seventh Earl's hand.
Folio 899
John Curzon to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from Kedleston, 23 February 1597/8. [Germaine] Bradshaw has told him the contents of [Ralph] Sacheverell's letter to [John] Harpur, which has been shown to the Earl [cf. Lambeth Ms. 695, folio 131]. Curzon protests that the proposals would prevent him from meeting his debts, conveying all to his wife [Millicent, daughter of Ralph Sacheverell and widow of Thomas Gell] and children, whereas he had hoped to leave his estate in the Earl's hands until he had met the debts of his father [Francis Curzon]. A post-script states that Gell distrusted Sacheverell and had promised John Manners that he should act as trustee for his godson [John Gell]. It would seem that Sacheverell seeks to benefit himself 'under the colour of doing for the children'. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Address in seventh Earl's hand.
Folio 901
Sir Horatio Palavicino to Thomas Cooke, from Babraham, 20 March 1597/8, asking him to settle the fine which must be paid by the [unnamed] bearer. Palavicino will pay any outstanding sum. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed. Address in seventh Earl's hand.

Sir Edward Winter to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from Lydney House, 26 April 1598. His lands in Weeke, three miles from Buxton, are unlawfully detained from him, as they were from his father, by the Dowager Countess of Shrewsbury and, unless the Earl can move her from her resolution, he must go to law. 1p. Endorsed. Address.
Folio 913
Sir Edward Dyer to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from his lodging [in London], 17 May 1598. The registrar [of the Order of the Garter] had a true copy of the security which he delivered and which he will enregister [cf. Lambeth Ms. 706, folio 45]. 1p. Endorsed. Address.
Folio 917
A brief of the effect of her Majesty's patent to Chesterfield Corporation collected for the Earl of Shrewsbury by Godfrey Clarke, 26 May 1598. Where certain doubts have arisen touching the liberties of the borough of Chesterfield, the Queen grants that it shall be a free borough, with a mayor, six aldermen, six brethren, and twelve burgesses, with all the rights and privileges formerly enjoyed lawfully. She also authorizes the corporation to erect a free grammar school; Godfrey Poljambe has bequeathed £40 a year for a preacher in Chesterfield and £13 6s. 8d. a year for a schoolmaster, 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Address.
Folio 921
Sir Horatio Palavicino to the Earl of Shrewsbury, K.G., from Babraham, 8 June 1598, trusting that the Earl is well and has benefitted from the attentions of the Italian surgeon de la Falca [cf. folio 905]. 1p. Italian. Endorsed. Address.
Folio 925
Randolph Crew to the Earl of Shrewsbury, Tuesday, no date [1596, cf. folio 843].

Sir Thomas will be attending the Earl about the matter. 1p. Endorsed. Address.
Folio 929
Robert Kidman to the Countess of Shrewsbury at Sheffield, no place, [London], Shrove Tuesday, 1598/9. Lady [Thomas] Monson is satisfied about the half year's rent for Dunham.

Endorsed.
Folio 933
Lawrence Alsop to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from Chesterfield, 18 June 1598. He dislikes the turn of events in Chesterfield, where the townspeople are scheming to make burgesses of themselves and to take all power away from the Earl, though Chesterfield has been reckoned the Earl of Shrewsbury's town time out of mind. Ralph Clarke, the Mayor, and his family are at the bottom of this. 2pp. Endorsed. 'To my honorable good lorde'. Address in seventh Earl's hand.
Folio 937
[Robert Kidman] to the Countess of Shrewsbury, no place, [London], Sunday night, 22 October 1598. Mr. Secretary [Sir Robert Cecil] asked after her at Court last evening and Kidman told him about Cheston [Cheshunt]. Cecil answered that the house was ready to fall down, but Kidman explained that the Earl and Countess had spent money on it. Cecil replied that they wanted it because of Tybbolds [Theobalds] and offered to allow the Countess to use Theobalds. He would like the house aired and in any case he planned to pull it down, lest some day a gentleman might be tempted to buy it of his son [William]. He had determined to spend no penny of the income of the lands left by his father [Lord Burghley] to his son William. Other news from Court. 2pp. Seal. Endorsed. 'To my Ladye'.
Folio 941
The Earl of Shrewsbury to [John] Manners and Sir H[umphrey] Ferrers, from Broad Street, June 1599. He has seen the Privy Council for the forbearance of training, but men must be available fit and trained in Derbyshire; the Council recommends that the captains should arrange for the men to meet periodically to become accustomed to their pieces, without using any powder. 1p. Copy. Address.
