Procedure: recommendation concerning salaries

The lord president and remaining lords of council and session recommended in a special manner to her majesty for the augmentation of their salaries conforming to a recommendation apart.

Recommendation to her majesty in favour of the lords of session

A motion being made by the lord [James Graham], marquis of Montrose, lord president of the privy council, that seeing the present salaries of the president and remaining lords of session were long since settled and that great alterations have happened in the value of money and prices of all things whereby these salaries are now become disproportioned to the dignity, pains and expense of that trust, and that the salaries being out of different funds do require charge and trouble to collect and recover them, and also seeing that in this parliament there is a new addition made to their labour, the jurisdiction of the commission for plantation of kirks and valuation of teinds being transferred to the session, it might be humbly recommended to her majesty by this house, in her great wisdom to make further provision for the said lord president and other lords of session, their salaries out of some sure fund and so as their salaries may be paid easily, to which motion the house did agree and did recommend to my lord high commissioner to lay this their humble request before her majesty.

[James Ogilvy, earl of] Seafield, in the presence of the lords of parliament.

Legislation

Alexander Baillie, servant to the lord register, recommended to the lords of treasury on a petition conforming to deliverance thereon.

Act and recommendation in favour of Alexander Baillie

At Edinburgh, 26 March 1707, her majesty's high commissioner and the estates of parliament, having heard the petition of Alexander Baillie, servant to the lord register, humbly showing that after the great fire in February 1700, which occasioned the transporting, for preservation, all the records and warrants from the lower parliament house to the old church, the confusion that happened thereby gave the petitioner, who was entrusted with the keeping of them, continual labour since, in putting them in the order, wherein they now are, which is much better than ever formerly, many of them, even before that time being altogether in disorder, as is known to many of the honourable members, and making up a new inventory of all the books of registers, which he did without getting any allowance; and further in September 1702, when a committee of privy council had inspected the records in the lower parliament house, for discovering what writs and papers lying there might be necessary for the then intended union, their lordships of the council did order a particular book of register, of all the public writs which had been inspected by their committee, to be made, and extracts of any of the said writs, when called for, to be given to the commissioners of treaty, and for so doing, there was a recommendation to the treasury. Yet the petitioner had received nothing, although that in obedience to that order he did at that time, on his own expense, deliver to Sir David Dalrymple, her majesty's solicitor, extracts of many of the said old writs, and since that time had been at pains of searching for all the public writs and treaties between this kingdom and that of England, France and other nations, that could be found, and had made up a register thereof which was therewith produced. Craving, therefore, his grace and the honourable estates of parliament to appoint such a sum as should be thought a competent allowance for the petitioner's pains and charges in putting the records in order, making a new inventory of the books, making up the said register, and giving furth extracts, as said is, to be paid out of some certain fund as his grace and their lordships should judge proper, as the said petition bears. And her majesty's high commissioner and the estates of parliament, having heard this petition, they recommended and hereby recommend the petitioner to the lords commissioners of her majesty's treasury for a further gratification and reward of his pains and service mentioned in this petition. Extracted from the warrants of the records of parliament in the lower parliament house by one of the principal clerks of session, having commission for that effect from the lord clerk register.

Legislation
Act in favour of the incorporations of Edinburgh for a maiden hospital

Our sovereign lady, with advice and consent of the estates of parliament, considering that there is a pious and laudable design now carrying on by the incorporations of the craftsmen of Edinburgh and others who join with them and authorised by the town council of the said burgh, by their act dated 3 May 1704, for founding and erecting a hospital for the maintenance and education of the female children and grandchildren of decayed craftsmen and others to be presented by persons who give donations thereto, which may be of general advantage and especially to the city of Edinburgh, therefore, her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, do hereby allow and authorise the said incorporations of the craftsmen of Edinburgh, and others joining or who shall join with them, to meet as often as occasion requires and to make such rules and constitutions for the carrying on and supporting of the said hospital only as they shall find just and convenient, as also to settle such funds as well out of their public boxes belonging to their respective administrations as private estates as they shall think fit, and to receive mortifications or donations from any persons who shall be pleased to contribute thereto, the said rules and acts to be made by them being always consistent with the laws of the kingdom, and with the acts and constitutions of the city of Edinburgh; and statutes and ordains the said rules and constitutions to be made by them to be as valid and effectual, to all intents and purposes for the ordering and governing of the said hospital above-mentioned, as if they were particularly expressed and set down in this act, with the which, her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, dispenses for ever. And further her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, ordains and declares the foresaid hospital, when set up and settled in its constitution and directors and overseers, to be a free hospital for the pious use foresaid, with power to the said hospital and its overseers and directors, not only to administer the funds and rents appertaining thereto, but likewise to purchase and acquire lands, tenements and others for the further good and advantage thereof; and, for that end, to make, grant and receive all manner of deeds and writs necessary for that effect, and to have a seal if they shall think needful, and with such inscriptions as they shall appoint for the confirmation of the said deeds, and generally to have all such powers, liberties and immunities of a free hospital for pious uses as any other hospital for the like uses has, or by the law may have within this kingdom.

Our sovereign lady the queen's majesty, with the advice and consent of the estates of parliament, taking into their serious consideration the great and unsupportable debts, extreme distress, manifest decay and imminent ruin of the royal burgh of Dundee, partly contracted and occasioned in the time of the troubles in King Charles I's reign, they being then obliged, by public authority, to fortify the town upon their own expenses, and partly by the sad calamity and loss the town sustained in the year 1651 through its being stormed and taken in by the then usurper, whereby the said burgh was pillaged and plundered in a most lamentable manner; as also the vast damages and losses the town sustained by the beating down of its harbour, the necessary reparation whereof was exceedingly expensive and burdensome, and moreover the great charges which the town was at by the marching and countermarching of troops through the burgh about the time of the revolution, with the universal decay of trade, especially in that place. Therefore, her majesty, out of her royal care and bounty for the relief and support of the said town does, with the advice and consent of the said estates of parliament, give, grant and convey to the said town of Dundee, provost, bailies, magistrates and council and community thereof, and their successors in office, for their use and behoof, an imposition of 2d Scots upon the pint of all ale and beer to be either brewed or in brought, tapped, vended and sold within the said town and Hilltown of Dundee and other liberties and suburbs thereof (and that over and above the queen's annexed excise) commencing from the date of this act, and thence to endure for all and whole the space of twenty-four years thereafter, imposing and ordaining the same to be paid to the said town and magistrates and council thereof by the brewers, vintners, sellers, tapsters and retailers of the said ale and beer during the whole space and years above-expressed, and the same to be uplifted, paid and ingathered weekly, monthly, quarterly as the foresaid magistrates and town council shall think fit to prescribe and order, strictly hereby appropriating and appointing the foresaid imposition and product thereof for the payment of the town's debts and, with this provision, as it is hereby expressly provided and declared, that the said imposition is and shall be burdened with the sum of £1,200 Scots money yearly for the space of six years to be paid to Mr James Anderson, writer to the signet, or his assignees, as a part of the expenses of the work recommended by the parliament to him, and that at two terms in the year Martinmas [11 November] and Whitsunday [15 May], beginning the first term's payment at Martinmas 1707, and ordains the magistrates of the said burgh to make payment of the same accordingly. And her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, ordains formal books to be kept by the town treasurer containing a particular and exact account of the product of the said imposition and yearly application thereof for the ends above-specified, in manner after-mentioned, and that separate and apart from any other books containing the town's common good or other revenues, and which books shall contain in the beginning a full, fair and true list of the town's debts principal and interest due at Martinmas 1706, and of the bonds granted thereof, and of the persons, names and designations to whom the same are due, and that the present magistrates shall deliver a subscribed copy of the foresaid list of debts in order to its being recorded in their guildry books to the intent the same may be exposed to the view of all concerned, especially to the burgesses of the said town, with the whole accounts and rolls relative to the said imposition, in order to the said burgesses and others concerned in the said town their taking exact trial of the verity, justness and extent of the said debts and imposition, and how the same was yearly applied in such manner and by such persons as shall be appointed by them for that effect, and that how soon any advantage shall arise to the said burgh by the above imposition now granted in their favour, that then, and immediately after the expiration of each year thereof, at least between then and the first day of January after the said expiration, the said magistrates and town council shall be held and obliged to make payment of the neat product of the said imposition for disburdening of the town of the whole bygone interest of the principal sums and ministers' stipends resting owing preceding Martinmas 1706 in the first place and that conforming to a list thereof herewith given in and which is to be recorded in formal books, as above, and in the next place for paying the principal sums themselves proportionally, and pertaining to the extent and yearly product of the foresaid imposition. And her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, ordains the neat product and account of the foresaid imposition to be made up between then and the first day of January yearly after the expiration of each year, and discharges of interest, bygone ministers' stipends and bonds to be retired yearly conforming to the extent and product of the said imposition and that between then and the first day of February thereafter, that the same, with the other revenues of the town shall, during the time of the act, be managed and disposed of at the sight and by the advice of the persons following, to wit the provost of Dundee and six of the town council nominated by the town council yearly, whereof five to be a quorum, and by five creditors, not councillors, chosen by the creditors, three whereof to be a quorum, by three maltmen, not councillors, chosen by the maltmen and by the authority of the dean of guild, two whereof to be a quorum, and by two tradesmen, not councillors, chosen by the convener and trades, one whereof to be always present, and all which to be yearly chosen, and the said joint committees, or their respective quorums, to meet quarterly by advertisement from the provost of the burgh for the time, and the yearly clearing of accounts to be in the presence of the earls [John Lyon, earl] of Strathmore, [James Maule, earl of] Panmure, [David Carnegie, earl of] Northesk and [John Elphinstone], lord Balmerino, Mr Francis Montgomery of Giffen, Mr Patrick Lyon of Auchterhouse, Mr Henry Maule of Kellie, Mr James Carnegie of Finavon, James Haliburton of Pitcur, Thomas Fotheringham of Powrie, David Graham, younger of Fintry, [Alexander] Duncan of Lundie and John Scrimgeour of Kirkton, or any of them who shall please to inspect the same, they always having advertisement from the provost or bailies of the said burgh for the time of the said diet of meeting, as said is, that so the debts may be yearly diminished and bonds cancelled and deleted out of the list of debts due by the said town, beginning the first term's instruction of the said payment at the term of Candlemas [2 February] 1708 and that for the year preceding and so furth to continue, during all and whole the space of this act, and that there shall be public intimation given to the whole merchants of Dundee to be present at the said annual meeting upon the [...] day of [...] yearly in order to their full satisfaction anent the neat product of the foresaid imposition, and due application thereof, for payment of the town's debts in manner above-expressed. And further it shall be rightful and lawful to all or each burgess of the said town, and they are hereby authorised and empowered to prosecute the said magistrates who shall not apply the foresaid imposition in the terms of this act and who are hereby declared liable in repetition and payment of whatever part of the above sums appointed to be paid yearly, as aforesaid, shall be unpaid or suffered to perish or become unprofitable by them through their neglect or negligence, and that before any judge competent and for payment of the expenses in the pursuit according to the pursuer his oath in the lawsuit without any manner of diminution or modification. And lastly her majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, does nominate and appoint the persons above-specified, each of them in their own classes and their respective joint committees and quorums of them, to be overseers of the said new imposition and management thereof in manner particularly above-mentioned.

Act in favour of the town of Aberdeen

Our sovereign lady and estates of parliament, considering a petition given in by the provost, bailies and council of Aberdeen representing the expense they have been brought to by the reparation and building of a bulwark for supporting their harbour, by the reparation of their prison and expense they will be put to in bringing water in to the town, by which, and their former debts, they are reduced to straits, and therefore craving a prorogation of a former gift in their favour for the space of twenty-five years after outrunning thereof. Therefore her majesty and estates foresaid do hereby ratify and approve the said former act in their favour, which is dated 16 July 1695 and, after expiration thereof, prorogate the same for the space of twenty-five years more, to be uplifted and collected by them in such form and manner during the said twenty-five years as they shall think fit, they being always obliged to apply the sum so uplifted, by virtue of this and the former gift, towards the payment of the principal sums due by them in the first place, and that at the sight of [James Ogilvy], earl of Seafield, lord high chancellor, [John Erskine], earl of Mar, lord secretary, [Charles Hay], earl of Erroll, [William Keith], earl Marischal, [John Keith], earl of Kintore, the lords [William Forbes, lord] Forbes and [Charles Fraser, lord] Fraser, Sir Thomas Burnett of Leys and the present commissioners to the parliament for the shire of Aberdeen, to whom, from year to year, they are to be accountable for their management, with the burden always of £40 sterling yearly during the continuance of this and the former gift towards a salary to Doctor Thomas Bower, regius professor of mathematics in the King's College of Aberdeen, and his successors in office, payable at two terms in the year Whitsunday [15 May] and Martinmas [11 November] by equal portions, beginning the first term's payment at Whitsunday next; and £30 sterling payable at Whitsunday and Martinmas next, by equal portions, to Alexander Baillie, servant to the lord register or his assignees, in part payment for his great pains and expense in putting in order the records and warrants in the lower parliament house, making inventories of the books and searching out and writing a register of the old public treaties between this and other nations, and ordain the magistrates of the said burgh to pay the said respective sums accordingly. And to the effect the said town of Aberdeen may be the better enabled to pay the said sum of £40 sterling yearly to the said Doctor Bower and his successors and the said £30 sterling to the said Alexander Baillie, in manner foresaid, out of what arises from the said gift, and in regard they have several public and useful works of their own to finish and carry on for the public utility, therefore, her majesty and the estates of parliament extend the imposition upon liquors mentioned in their said gift to what shall be brewed and vended in the old town of Aberdeen, college bounds, Spittal and Seaton, from and after the said term of Whitsunday next, and statute and ordain that all liquors brewed and vended in the said old town, college bounds, Spittal and Seaton, from that term and during the continuance of this gift, shall be liable to the same imposition on liquors that are brewed and vended in the new town, and that the said town of Aberdeen, their collectors or tacksmen, may levy, collect and uplift the said imposition during the space foresaid in the same way and manner as they have levied and collected or shall levy and collect the same from their own brewers and retailers, and declare this act to be as effectual as if it had been contained in their first gift hereby prorogated.

Act in favour of [James Douglas], duke of Hamilton and the town of Bo'ness

Our sovereign lady, taking to consideration that the town of Bo'ness is most conveniently situated for trade and the place where both natives and strangers with their ships and vessels resort but, for want of a pier or harbour, many inconveniences arise, to the great hurt and damage both to merchants and owners of ships, and goods, being necessitated to load and unload the same by boats and lighters at inconvenient seasons, being obliged to wait upon tides and calm weather, to the great prejudice of all concerned and to the great detriment of her majesty's revenue by diminution of the duty of damnified goods which frequently falls out upon the reasons above-mentioned, all which would be avoided if there were a convenient pier or harbour for loading and unloading in manner foresaid. And considering that the inhabitants of the said town and parish thereof are desirous and willing that the imposition after-mentioned be granted for building of a harbour at the said town, as a paper under their hands has testified, therefore, her majesty, with advice and consent of the estates of parliament, does hereby allow an imposition of 2d Scots upon each pint of all ale and beer to be brewed and vended within the said town and parish, to be uplifted and collected by his grace the duke of Hamilton, his heirs and successors or their collectors, and that for the space of nineteen years, and the money so to be uplifted is hereby destined and appointed for erecting and building the said harbour, and the said duke of Hamilton and his foresaids are to apply the said money for the use and end above-mentioned at the sight of William [Johnston], marquis of Annandale and John [Hamilton], earl of Ruglen, or any one of them, their heirs or successors in case of their decease. And the said duke of Hamilton and his foresaids are hereby authorised to enter to the collection of the said imposition at and after the term of Whitsunday [15 May] 1707, with the burden always of £30 sterling payable at Whitsunday and Martinmas [11 November] next by equal portions to Alexander Baillie, servant to the lord register, or his assignees, in part payment for his great pains and expense in putting in order the records and warrants in the lower parliament house, making up inventories of the books and searching out and writing a register of the old public treaties between this and other nations, and ordain the said duke and his foresaids to pay the same accordingly.

Act in favour of the burgh of Kirkcaldy

Our sovereign lady and the estates of parliament, considering that the burgh of Kirkcaldy having, by the building of a harbour, tolbooth and other public works, contracted debts far beyond their common good, whereby, and by the great loss the inhabitants have suffered in shipping during the late and present war, they are so impoverished that the burgh is in great hazard of going to utter ruin to the public loss of the nation. And seeing an imposition in favour of the burgh of 2d upon each pint of ale and beer brewed and vended, within the privileges of the same for a suitable time, would be a ready means for preventing thereof; and that the far greatest part of the burgesses and inhabitants (who only can be the sufferers) have, by a writ under their hands, signified their consent thereto. Therefore, and for the better enabling the said burgh to perform that duty and service to the public, which upon all occasions they have been ready to do, her majesty, with advice and consent of the said estates, authorise and empowers the magistrates and town council of Kirkcaldy (or such as they shall appoint) to collect and ingather an imposition of 2d (distinct from the excise payable to her majesty) upon each pint of ale and beer brewed and vended, within the privileges of the said burgh, for the space of twenty-five years from and after Whitsunday [15 May] next in the year 1707, to be applied for the payment of the public debt of the burgh in the first place, and for repairing the harbour and other public ends of the burgh in the next place, with full power to the magistrates and town council, or their collector, to poind and distrenzie, and to use such order for bringing in thereof as they are in use to do for any part of their common good; with the burden of £25 sterling yearly to be paid to the seven macers of parliament for the first four years, and £10 sterling yearly to Doctor Thomas Bowar, professor of mathematics in the King's College of Aberdeen towards a salary, to himself and successors in the said profession, from the said term of Whitsunday for the whole subsequent years contained in this act; which her majesty, with advice foresaid, discerns and ordains to be paid to him and his successors in office by the magistrates and their collectors at two terms in the year Whitsunday and Martinmas [11 November] by equal portions accordingly, and that the said 2d of the pint shall be applied to the uses above-mentioned by the said magistrates at the sight of the earls of [John Hamilton/Leslie, earl of] Rothes, [David Wemyss, earl of] Wemyss, [David Leslie/Melville, earl of] Leven, [Henry Sinclair], lord Sinclair, or any two of them, their heirs and successors, who are hereby authorised to call the said magistrates and their collectors to account for the same.

Act renouncing the reversion of kirklands

Our sovereign lady, considering that by the several annexations of kirklands to the crown the feu duties are reserved to the lords of erection, redeemable by her majesty and successors by payment of 1,000 merks for each 100 merks or chalder of victual, and proportionally for every other duty not being naked services, and that this reversion has been no profit to the crown but a let and impediment of all transactions between the lords and feuars thereupon, and that the said lords of erection and their successors in their rights have been always most dutiful to her sacred majesty and her predecessors. Therefore, and for the other grounds above-written, her majesty, with advice and consent of the estates of parliament, dissolves the said feu duties from the crown and rescinds all the acts of annexation thereof to the effect the same may remain with the lords of erection, and those having right from them, irredeemably and forever, and therefore discharges the said reversion contained in the several acts of parliament and, for her and her successors, renounces the same forever, and wills and ordains that this general discharge and renunciation shall be as valid and effectual to every person concerned as if they had particular discharges and renunciations apart registered in the register of reversions and discharges thereof. With the which and anent all imperfections that may be objected, her majesty, for herself and successors, with advice and consent foresaid, has dispensed and hereby dispenses forever, declaring this act shall not preclude her majesty and her royal successors of the right of superiority of the said erections or of any duties, casualties or services able to be carried out by the lords of erection for the same conforming to their several rights thereof.

Act in favour of the burgh of Kinghorn

Our sovereign lady and the estates of parliament, considering that the burgh of Kinghorn, having contracted debts far beyond their common good by upholding their ruinous harbour and building a new one not yet finished, which will be of the greatest use and advantage to all passengers coming and going from this place to the north of Scotland, and besides other great losses the inhabitants have sustained in transporting several of their majesties' forces since the revolution and furnishing them horses, which have been quite ruined and for which they never received any payment, they are so much impoverished that the town is in hazard of utter ruin; and seeing an imposition in favour of the said burgh of 2d upon each pint of ale and beer brewed and vended within the said burgh and privileges thereof, for a competent number of years, would be a ready means for enabling the said burgh to finish the said harbour and preventing the ruin thereof by the great losses already sustained. Therefore, and for the better enabling to perform the duty and service to the public which upon all occasions they have been ready to do, her majesty, with advice and consent of the estates of parliament, authorises and empowers the magistrates and town council of Kinghorn, and such as they shall appoint, to collect and ingather an imposition of 2d upon the pint of ale and beer brewed and vended, within the said burgh and privileges, for the space of twenty-four years from and after 1 May next to come, to be applied for payment of the debts contracted in advancing of the said harbour, and to be contracted for finishing thereof in the first place, and in the next place for payment of the public debts of the burgh, with full power to the said magistrates, town council and such as they shall appoint to poind and distrenzie, and use such order and execution for bringing in thereof as they are in use to do for their common good, which imposition of 2d upon the pint of ale and beer, during the space foresaid, is hereby declared to be over and above and distinct from the annexed and additional excise payable to her majesty, the said magistrates being obliged to apply annually what arises from the said imposition in order and to the uses aforesaid at the sight of the earls [David Wemyss, earl of] Wemyss, [John Lyon, earl of] Strathmore, [David Leslie/Melville, earl of] Leven and [George Melville, earl of] Melville, and their heirs or any two of them, who are hereby authorised to audit the accounts of the said imposition and to discharge the magistrates upon such charge and discharge to be given in by them, as the said earls shall see just. And its hereby provided and declared that the foresaid imposition shall be burdened with the payment of £600 Scots to William Wilson, one of the under-clerks of session, and that for a year and a half's salary due to him as under-clerk of privy council from Whitsunday [15 May] 1689 to Martinmas [11 November] 1690 and for the extraordinary pains and expenses he was put to for the exigency of the government during that time, and with the like sum of £600 Scots to James Stephen, usher, for his public service and attendance payable in six years, being £100 to each of them per annum, and appoints the first year's payment to be at Candlemas [2 February] 1708 and so yearly at the said term, until the said respective sums be completely paid, and ordain the said magistrates, town council and collectors thereof to make payment to them accordingly.
