Memorandum.

This twenty-first day of October 1680, the clergy of the Isle of Man were convened by Henry, lord bishop of Man, to consult with the said bishop about the discovery and distribution of the king's augmentation and the monies due out of the impropriations, ever since the first purchase of them in 1664, and because Mr Samuel Wattleworth and Mr Thomas Robinson are pretty well acquainted with the concerns thereof, and are not far distant from the officers with whom they are to negotiate this affair, therefore the said clergy, with the consent of the said bishop, have unanimously elected them two to solicit this business and to report their proceedings every twenty-first day of the month till this affair be brought to a good conclusion, and for their pains have agreed they shall be recompensed at the discretion of the said bishop out of the said monies, when it is received. As witness our hands hereunto subscribed, the day and year above written.

Henricus Sodorensis.
