marks, was the only force the king had in

was plundered, and himself fined for his de-
linquency, by the commissioners at Gold-
smiths' Hall, £l8(tO, which, not being
thought sufficient, was afterwards, by vote
in parliament, increased to i'4000 ; but upon
great application it was reduced to the first
fine. He was, in consideration of his ser-
vices, advanced to the degree of baronet ;
