hereby, and by his own confession, found him guilty of



against the Lord Chancellor. 549

the crimes and corruptions complained of by the com-
mons, and of sundry other crimes and corruptions of
the like nature.

And therefore this high court, having first sum-
moned him to attend, and having his excuse of not
attending by reason of infirmity and sickness, which,
he protested, was not feigned, or else he would most
willingly have attended ; doth nevertheless think fit to
proceed to judgment: and therefore this high court
doth adjudge,

I. That the lord viscount St. Alban, lord Chan-
cellor of England, shall undergo fine and ran-
som of forty thousand pounds.

II. That he shall be imprisoned in the Tower
during the King's pleasure.

III. That he shall for ever be uncapable of any
office, place, or employment, in the state or
commonwealth.

IV. That he shall never sit in parliament, nor
come within the verge of the court.

This is the judgment and resolution of this high
court.
