Note. On the 4th November 1427, as seen by the original certificate in the Venetian Archives, the notary Robert Lockyng practised at Sandwich “by Apostolic and Imperial authority,” whereas the London notaries, Styfford, bonamitié, Hydyngham, Domy, Slade, and Kyffyn, throughout the fifteenth century—unlike Locking— dispense with Apostolic authority, but serve their clients Imperiali Auctoritate, always without the slightest reference to the jurisdiction of the English crown. In the sixteenth century (1507–12) the London notary Devereux, on the other hand, acts like Lockyng at Sandwich in 1427, by Apostolic and Imperial authority.
