Royal Writ  125/396  (1678)

Contents:
Recital that in Trinity Term, 1675, William Rowe clerk, Curate of Wembury, exhibited a bill in Chancery against Michaell Harvey, Esq., stating that Wembury is an unendowed curacy, and that the impropriation belongs to the Dean and Canons of Windsor, who in the times of James I leased for three lives to Sir Shilston Calmady, knight, deceased, on conditon that he maintained a Curate there; which he did, allowing the Curate 27 7s 4d p.a. for a maintenance; and that Sir John Hele, baronet, an inhabitant of Wembury, by his will gave to the Minister or Curate of Wembury, if he should be a conformable man, an annuity of 6 13s 4d from his manor of Clifton, Dorset, as long as the allowance paid to him was not increased; and that on the termination of the above lease, the Dean & Canons of Windsor made a new lease to Josias Calmady, Esq., the son of Sir Shilston Calmady, for 21 years on condition that he paid the Curate there 20 p.a. only: and that the manor of Clifton has descended to the said Michaell Harvey, who has for some years refused to pay the said annuity.
And that the defendant put in an answer, admitting the facts but stating that the King in 1660 gave orders to Bishops, Deans and Prebends that no leases should be made of rectories until provision be made for Curates to have 100 or 80 p.a.; and that the complainant therefore ought not to be entitled to the annuity.
And that the complainant replied that he had not been able to obtain any such increase from the Dean and Canons of Windsor.
And of Judgment of the Court of Chancery, on Saturday, 3 February 1676/7, by the Right Honourable Heneage Lord Finch, Baron of Daventry, Lord High Chancellor of England, that the arrears of the annuity be forthwith paid, and the payment continued until there shall be better maintenance for the Curate of Wembury or his successors.
Injunction to Michael Harvey and others to carry out the order of the court. 23 July (1678)
