The East Riding and the Purveyance Con= tracts of the Royal household, temp. James the First.
S appears from the copies of documents which follow, Yorkshire, for various economic purposes, in which joint action by the county had to be considered by the respective Ridings separately, was held by "anchient rule" to be fiscally answerable to the demands of authority in these proportions: the East Riding, 3; the West Riding, ; the North Riding, 30. In 1595, this rule was applied, as probably on many other occasions, to the levying of taxation in the assessments made for the support of wounded soldiery, and it is to be gathered that the procedure was the execution of an agreement by the Justices of the Peace. The proportional division was adopted in the privileged contracts for the yearly purveyance for the royal household, in the matter of the supply of beeves, which is the subject of the two manuscripts. It is noticeable that the price of an ox in 1609 is £4, but in 1617 only 50s. The papers, as seen in the concluding notes, passed from hand to hand, but evidently went no further than to Mr. Alured, for they came into my possession with other papers relating to the Alured family.
