Resolved Question: Can anyone translate this
Charles also revived antiquated forest laws so as to obtain new revenue from fines. During Norman times (and possibly before), the crown possessed special rights over large areas designated as royal forests, but since the 14th Century these rights had fallen into desuetude in most of England. Charles reasserted these rights and levied fines on property owners whose families had for generations regarded the "forest land" as their own .
the end of the Spanish War in 1604 helped to achieve a favorable balance of payments for the next few years,
but economic and trade problems later eroded English exports, especially cloths
, which had a negative impact on the balance of
payments. Circumstances changed again by the 1630s, when there was a decline in
the issue of gold coins and a corresponding increase in the amount of silver coins
issued. Much of the reason was an improving trade balance.The English ambassador to Spain in 1630, Sir Francis Cottington, negotiated a
lucrative arrangement for English monetary interests. The Spanish had been financing
a lengthy military operation against the Dutch, which previously transferred the
money, mostly silver, through Genoa, italy. Cottington persuade Spain to divert
those shipments to the English mint in English ships, which provided England with a
handsome profit while guaranteeing greater security for the Spanish shipments.
Perhaps £l0 million worth of Spanish silver was minted in England between 1630 and
1643. Yet knowledgeable 3-
Yet knowledgeable English goldsmiths sifted out the new silver coins and sold
them abroad for profit. The Crown prosecuted and imprisoned several goldsmiths in the 1630s for illegal exports of coin. When Charles I' temporarily stopped the
coinage of the Tower mint in 1640, he startled the London Merchants, who feared
that the king's desperate gambit for revenues might the security of their
accounts at the mint. During the Civil Wars' of the l640s, , the Crown was forced to
use alternative mints since parliament' controlled London. At varying times during
the war, coins were issued from provincial mints at Aberystwyth, Bristol, Chester,
Colchester, Combe Martin, Coventry, Exeter, Lundy Island, Newark, Oxford,
Pontefract, Scarborough, Shrewsbury, Truro, Weymouth, Worcester, and York.
