✹ About Thursday 14 July 1664 Mary on 17 Jul 2007 • Link the problem of the Clarendon Park timber. According to an L&M footnote for this entry, whereas the Crown had reserved the right to felled timber on the estate to itself, Clarendon objects to Deane's marking of standing timber for the navy. Clarendon regards the standing timber as his own property. However, according to an earlier note, Clarendon never did obtain full ownership of the estate (which had originally been mortgaged by Charles I, together with other lands, for the sum of £27,400). Although Sam notes that "he (Clarendon) seems to have bought [it] of my Lord Albemarle" that "seems" may be significant. SMALL SPOILER:The estate reverted to Albemarle after Clarendon's disgrace in 1667.
