Thomæs Andrews, coram eadem Curia Parliamenti, usque Diem Mercurii, Quintum Diem Februarii prox. fequen. apud Westm. in Comitatu Midd'x de Judicio suo inde audiend. eo quod Cur. Parliamenti præd. inde nondum &c. Ad quem Diem, coram eadem Cur. Parliamenti, venerunt Partes præd. per Attornatos suos præd.; super quo, visis et per Cur. Parliamenti præd. plenius intellectis omnibus et singulis Præmissis, diligenterque examinat. et inspect. tam Record. et Process. præd. ac Judicio super inde redit. quam præd. Causis et Materiis per præd. Catherin. Strode superius pro Error. assign. maturaque Deliberatione inde habita, videtur Cur. Parliamenti præd. quod in Record. et Process. præd. necnon in Redditione Judicii præd. manifeste est Errat. Ideo per eandem Cur. Parliamenti consideratum est, quod Judicium præd. o Errores in Record. et Process. præd. existen. revocetur, adnulletur, et penitus pro nullo habeatur; quodque ipsa eadem Catherina ad. omnia quæ ipsa Occasione Judicii præd. amisit restituatur. Et ulterius, per eandem Cur. Parliamenti consideratum est, quod præd. Thomas Andrews nihil capiat per Billam suam præd. sed fit in Misericordia pro salso Clamore (fn. 1) sua; et quod præd. Catherina Strode habeat inde sine Dec, &c. Super quo, Record. præd. necnon Process. præd. in eadem Cur. Parliamenti in præmiss. habit. per Cur. Parliamenti præd. Cur. dictæ Dominæ Reginæ, coram ipsa Regina, ubicunque &c. remittuntur."
