Winslow's response to the 29 articles, 1646

National Archives, SP28/151

Oliver CromwellIn 1646, with Bucks firmly under the control of Parliament and Charles I in the hands of the Scots, the County Committee started to look into making reparations for the losses which had been suffered during the fighting (although they were still imposing heavy taxation to pay for the army). They sent round a printed pro forma of 29 Articles, and the replies of many parishes have survived. The return for Winslow is the most substantial piece of evidence about what the town suffered during the Civil War, and is especially useful for the specific dates which it provides for the arrival of leading figures in the Parliamentary Army including the relatively unimportant (at the time he came to Winslow) Colonel Oliver Cromwell (read more about him on the Cromwell Association website). When he came in February 1644 he was on his way to the assault on Hillesden House. His second visit around Michaelmas was in the month before the Second Battle of Newbury, when Parliament was trying to put pressure on the Royalist stronghold of Oxford.

Some explanatory notes have been added below in italics. We haven't at present got the text of the 29 Articles but the nature of most of the questions can be reconstructed from the answer. The names written in the margins were the people who could confirm the expenditure which was claimed. For more information, see Ian Beckett, Wanton Troopers: Buckinghamshire in the Civil Wars 1640-1660 (Barnsley: Pen & Sword, 2015). We've also got responses from Adstock, Addington, Little Horwood, Maids Moreton, Middle Claydon, Nash, Wing and Padbury; more to follow. There are also some separate records for Granborough. See also Civil War accounts of Thomas Tyrrell, 1643-46 (which mention some of the payments recorded on this page).

By vertue of a warrant directed from the Com(m)ittie for takinge the Accounts of this Countie of Bucks accordinge to an Ordinance of Parliament dated 22th Febr: 1643, we the inhabitants of Addington have returned o(u)r answeres to the 29 Articles th(e)rein expressed, as we are able for the p(re)sent (after so longe a tract of time) to make anie replie. And o(u)r answere is as followeth

Imp(rimi)s & 2d we cannot now recall to mind what sum(m)e of monie was assessed for the Subsidies mentioned in the two first articles : but the sum(m)s assessed were payde to such Collect(o)rs as were appoynted to receive the same & who were the collect(o)rs thereof we cannot p(re)cisely remember

3 To the 3d Article we answer that the sum(m)e assessed was 17li 4s 1d & the sum(m)e assessed was payde accordingly & further we cannot answere.

4 To the 4th we say that we remember not what sum(m)e was assessed, subscribed or lent upon the Act expressed in that Article.

5  O(u)r answere to the 5th Article that we remember not what sum(m)e was payde or given for the cause expressed in that Article.

[margin : Goodwin] And Robert Whitehall Clerke did subcribe for & pay 100li to those w(hi)ch were appoynted to be Collect(o)rs thereof; namely 50li to Richard Grenvile Esqr then high Sheriffe of the Countie of Bucks & 50li more was payde to John Warner & Lawrence Halstead Citiecens of London. [margin : Greenfil]   And this monie was payde according to An act of Parliament for the subduinge & reducing of the rebells of Ireland.

7 We collected & payde to Mr Peacock for the recontenance[?] of the British armie 18li & 1s. This monie was payde June 20 1646. [margin : Peacock]

8 We assessed & payde 8li 2s 9d for the 1st part of the 400000li but who were subcollectors thereof we remember not now

9 We returne the like answere to the 9 Article

10 We beleeve that there was not anie plate or moneyes subscribed or lent or payde according \to/ the 10th Article because Mr Busbie saith he borrowed severall sum(m)s, & still doth upon interest & the other inhabitants are poore

11 We answere to the 11th that we beleeve there was no light horse, dragoones, armes or other p(ro)visions subscribed for upon the p(ro)posic(i)ons for the reason given in the last p(re)cedent. But there was a teame of 4 horses, with their harnesse, (all worth 22li) taken from Mr Busby by a partie of souldiers com(m)anded by S(i)r Rob(er)t Pye the yonger, he then beinge at Addington with them. [margin : Pye] And a blacke geldinge taken from him at anoth(e)r time by a souldier, under the com(m)and of Captaine Greenvile (as he sayde) for redemption whereof Mr Busbies servant payde 10s.

12 To the 12th we say that Mr Busbie paid for his whole 20th 5 part 130li to Mr Richard Baldwin, one of the treasurers for this Countie : & 2 horses valued at 23li to be repayde upon the publiq faith were had of him. Also Robert Whitehall Clarke payde 30li in monie, & 3 horses valued at 30li (for w(hi)ch he hath the publiq faith) the whole sum(m)e 60 payde for his 20th & 5 part.

13 We say to the 13th Article that we were charged w(i)th no revew for the 20th & 5 part.

14 We answere to the 14th Article as we have to the 8 & 9.

15 To the 15th we say that we were charged w(i)th no sum(m)e of monie for the sending of anie forces to Redinge.

We payd for diggers at Newport 3li 12s, & for beddinge 3li; we beleeve also that we were charged w(i)th more particulars w(hi)ch we cannot now expresly remember, because the acquittances were taken from us by the souldiers.

17. To the 17th o(u)r answere is that Colonell Ven & Colonell Whichcott did lay no charge upon us for the mayntenance of the Garison in the castle of Winsor; nor (to o(u)r knowledge) were we charged w(i)th anie free quarters for their souldiers.

20. We say to the 20th we say that we made some payments for the reliefe of maymed souldiers, but the sum(m)e we remember not.
