Excuse my not coming into Ireland as I promised. The business requiring my presence there was only the customs. I have understood by letters from my kinsman, Robert Cogan, that all the ports of that kingdom (excepting only Dublin, Waterford, Drogheda and Galway), do willingly agree to pay the King the subsidy of 12d. in the pound. It will remain as a thing of special importance for raising the King's revenue and setting a final conclusion of that business, that the like sum be levied by way of impost upon all the goods and merchandises of the freemen of the said four ports, to the end that the trade and commerce of all the ports of that kingdom may be equally balanced one with another, and the freemen of the ports who have conformed themselves be preserved from ruin, which they will suffer if those ports

67. ROBERT COGAN to LORD CAREW.
Finding a messenger ready to depart for Dublin, I have presumed to trouble you with a few lines to let you understand the success I have had in this troublesome business, in my tedious journey from Wexford to this port of Kinsall, where I am now come along the coast. I have found some small resistance in the town of Rosse, grounded on a promise they say you made them that they should be as free as Waterford; but this difference was soon reconciled by the serjeant-at-arms, who took them presently into his custody to have them brought up to Dublin, at which they were so amazed that they sent their recorder to me with a submission to obey his Majesty, whatsoever way required in the letter, acknowledging their fault.
Waterford stands out and will not make any resignation or composition with the King for their poundage, and for the imposition they answer that they will be as ready to pay it as Dublin, and until Dublin pay it they will not. So that whatsoever Dublin doth, all the rest will stand out until they be compelled to pay it; and if it be once levied this business is at an end, and I do not doubt to make a good revenue to the King in the present, and a greater in time to come. I was yesterday at Corke, where they entreat respite for two or three days. I expect no resistance, for they have no excuse. From there I intend to ride to Lymericke and so to Gallwey, and thence to Dublin, which I hope will be before Michaelmas.

68. A NOTE how the Plantation goes forward in Farmanoch,
and what the Undertakers have done there, and their proceedings. (1) Barony of Lorge.—First, Sir Edward Blanerhasset, whose son as agent for his father is there, and with him six persons, of which two have their wives, but whether they are to be leaseholders or freeholders he knoweth not until his father's coming. They are all well armed. They have made one English house, with three rooms beneath, a chimney, and an oven, with a loft, and part of the house is already thatched; some boards are already sawed for the loft and about fifteen trees felled and squared. For cattle they have four mares and a horse, and have brought a dozen head of cattle or thereabout. For lime and stone, I see none. (2.) Thomas Blanerhasset has with him six persons, one a joiner, another a carpenter, and three other workmen, with one tenant. He has built a boat, and has broken stones for lime and some burnt; and thirty trees felled; some squared and sawed; a fair large Irish house built, with windows and rooms after the English manner, wherein is a new kitchen with a stove, chimney, and an oven. For cattle 3 horses, a mare, and some thirteen head of other cattle. (3) Barony of Clankelly.—Thomas Flowerdew, has with him six persons, one a carpenter, others freeholders or leaseholders; has built an Irish house with a chimney at the end, made of wattles, contrived in two rooms and a frame for a timber house of birch, most part of it to be set up within a Danes fort. He has a plough of mares and garrons, two English horses, an English mare, one cow, with some three or four bullocks for their provision, and some few arms. (4.) Sir Hugh Worral has his brother there taking up his rent, but, as yet, nothing else goes forward. (5) Mr. Sudborough has with him eight men well armed, including two sons and one Mr. Stookes, a leaseholder; he has contrived an Irish house into three rooms, and built a watteld chimney in it. He has one plough of mares and garrons, an English horse and mare, and 20 head of cows. (6.) Robert Culvert has with him six persons furnished well with peers and pikes, and one leaseholder; has built an Irish house, in three rooms and a watteld chimney in the end. He has a plough of garrons and three English horses, and about fifteen cows; twenty trees felled towards building (7.) Barony of Knockninny.—Lord Burleigh. His agent, Mr. Mildrom, has 20 men well furnished with pikes and pieces; has a house built with six couples, the ends with a double chimney in the middle; 108 trees felled, and two kilns of lime burnt of the stones of Castleske. Cattle: 40 cows, and two ploughs of garrons and horses. (8.) Sir John Wisherd, is newly come over with some 15 persons well armed; has two ploughs, is now sowing wheat; and likeliest to go forward of any of the undertakers.
