Document type: Copy

An Essay upon the Stannaries of Devon and Cornwall, their History, Privileges, and Jurisdiction. Drawn up by a writer unnamed to whose MS. considerable additions have been made, apparently about the Year 1670. With an Appendix, containing copious extracts from illustrative Records: extending from the year 1313, to the year 1607.

[Note. The anonymous writer seems to have been the amasser of considerable topographical and archaeological collections for Cornwall, and himself a Cornishman. Carte's transcriber copied from an Anstis MS.

At page 1, the writer speaks of "Her Majesty's" right to the pre-emptions of tin. At p.9 as the MS now stands, he mentions,- as "in my collection", a Record of 1 Sept 1664. But it is possible, nevertheless, that the MS was originally written in Q. Elizabeth's time - by Richard Carew, of Anthony ?- and the considerable additions were long afterwards made by another hand.

The MS. begins as a letter, and, in its first form, may well have been addressed to Ralegh upon his appointment as Lord Warden.]

Mme de Trorenne to M. Duval

Date: [Cir. 1670?]

Shelfmark: MS. Carte 221, fol(s). 456

Document type: Copy. Without address, and without date. But probably written between 1668 & 1670.

Has received, almost at the same moment, M. Duval's two letters, by which, only, the writer has learned the new circumstances in which M. Duval is placed. Regrets that she cannot personally congratulate him thereupon (on the occasion mentioned in his letter) and prefers to send at once a few hasty lines, rather than to delay all expression of her pleasure at the news of his settlement.

But it is a pleasure mingled with regret.- A family is deprived of a Pastor, who was dearly loved & much honoured.

Adds some notice of incidents connected with the present position, the liturgy and the discipline of the French Reformed Churches at home and abroad. "If variations ('differences') arise in the two Kingdoms, they are variations of circumstance, not of opinion".

[M. Duval was, possibly, one of the French settlers at Carrick. He is not mentioned in Huguenots in England and Ireland.]
