Letters and Papers Foreign and Domestic Henry VIII August 1527. 21 Jul 1528. R.O. St. P.I. 321. 4536. Duke of Richmond (9) to Henry VIII (37).
I have received two of your letters, dated Tittenhanger, the 10th, desiring the preferment of Sir Giles Strangwisshe (42) and Sir Edw. Seymer, master of my horse, to rooms vacant by the death of Sir Wm. Compton (46). I send a list of the offices and the fees appertaining. I presume you mean that one of the said gentlemen is to be preferred to the stewardship of Canforde.
It was signified to me by the Cardinal that it was your pleasure, when any office fell vacant, that I should dispose of it, considering the great number of my servants who have no other reward. Hearing, then, that the stewardship of my lands in Dorset and Somerset shires was void, I have disposed of one of them to Sir Wm. Parre, and the other to Geo. Coton, who attends upon me.
