  • Les reportes del cases in Camera Stellata, 1593 to 1609 from the original ms. of John Hawarde edited by William Paley Baildon Published 1894 Page 47. In Camera Stellata, die Veneris, 18 Junij, Anno Domini 1596, termino trinitatis, Elizab. 38, coram consilio ibidem. The first case was an information by the Queens Attorney against one Howe, a broker, and Easte, a solicitor, for coseninge divers yonge gentlemen,and procuring them to enter into bonds, statutes, recognizances and confessions of action by attorney (which bound them although under age, and which could not be avoided when they came to full age), and so of the confession of some such real action within age. They procured one Richard Cage, the only son of one John Cage of London, Salter, and another [ blank ] to swear in the Chancery, that they were of full age, in this manner: the said Howe and Baste drew a bill and an answer to it, and wrote two councellers names to these, without [Page 48] their knowledge, and procured Doctor Hone to write his name to the said answer; thus they condemned the gentlemen body and soul; and these cosiners procured money from the erle Lincolne for the said gentlemen, and a condition with promise of defeasance, and a confession of the action on this and other bargains, for a perle looking glasse of £100 and borders of £120, and other merchandise to the value of £600, and other cosinages as appears in their confession only. For which matters they were sentenced by the whole Court to have imprisonment for a year, and to be on the pillory at Westminster, at the Temple Gate, and in Cheape side, with papers on their heads, to be whipped all through the city in the four terms of the year, and fined each £20. The Lord Treasurer would have those that make the playes to make a Comedie hereof, & to acte it with these names, & gave good Counsell to there Fathers, that when they sende there sonnes to the innes of Cowrte to have one or too superintendentes over them that maye looke over them, & certify there Freindes of there manner of lyvinge, as by experience he hathe knowne to be commonly used. By the Lord Keeper; The sentence is just; for this is a great and common offence great, because it concerns all the pillars of the land and commonwealth, noble and ignoble; common, because one Williamson has a bedrolle of all young gentlemen in the town. And so it was adjudged by all to be a greevous offence and worthy of death, who robbed them body and soul.
