  • "Arguments against the pretences of Frederick Ixem to be the King's sole and only notary, and as such to have the custody and translation of the foreign papers taken on ships and relating to prizes with the profits relating thereto.

In England being made a notary is no office but it only makes them capable of being an officer in the ecclesiastical or Admiralty or Delegates' courts, if he can procure such an office, or to get a clerk's or deputy's place in such court or to have instruments made before him. No one under pretence of being the King's notary ever had the custody or translation of such papers, but to the office of Register of the Admiralty Court has belonged such custody and translation, which office is now granted by the Duke of York as Lord High Admiral to Orlando Gee, wherein by express words is granted the custody of all such papers, and by virtue thereof he has always had them. Mr. Ixem without any cause offered to stir the question in the former war in his present Majesty's time, which was rejected as frivolous. (Arguments to show the inconvenience of Mr. Ixem's having such papers.) [2 pages. Ibid. No. 112.]"[3]
