Spanish term or phrase: no puede constar aún de posesión
With this last question, I believe it says "and possession [of the property] cannot be confirmed" but I don't understand who is doing the confirming. Is it the Crown or the recipient?

... cinco años, no obstante hallarse en México por sus servicios y 103 escudos de plata, de donativo, pagados en la Tesorería del Consejo y aplicados, a las asistencias públicas, en virtud de las órdenes, del señor Duque de Montalto, en conformidad de las que tenía de su Majestad diósele su despacho: y no puede constar aún de posesión.

possession cannot yet be confirmed
Explanation:
it is the crown that cannot confirm as the document is being emitted by the crown and the person is "out of the country" and cannot respond directly. Correspondence could take months to arrive in those days
