No the answer but... and hint

>Not the origin for which I'm searching as my question is based in England. However, I'm thinking that partial credit dwells somewhere in that reply. I'm trying to find the story, I believe about how Montezuma (before he was stoned to death) had to deliver his weight in gold to get Cortez off his case in Mexico. I don't know if that story is legend or based on Spanish documents, but it certainly represents a "weighing in".

My question fits within the same general time period, but is linked directly to English politics.
