Footnotes

  • 1. In the ordinary course of events, Evans and Bingham (vide p. 236) would still have been wardens; Evans apparently retired and Barnarde became junior warden. A John Barnarde was buried in September (p. 244), this was probably the churchwarden; Robert Pennythorn was no doubt chosen to fill his place for the rest of the year.
  • 2. Jackeson (R.)
  • 3. Webere (R.)
  • 4. Ruston (R.)
  • 5. Mariona Browne (R.)
  • 6. George Varnam (R.) slain in self defence by one whom he had attacked (Gaol Delivery Rolls, 6th June, 11 Eliz. Middlesex County Record Society).
  • 7. Coxe (R.)
  • 8. Barnett (R.)
  • 9. Mone (R.)
  • 10. Wilson (R.)
  • 11. Langley (R.)
  • 12. Evans (R.)
  • 13. Collin (R.)
  • 14. These relics of the church were probably stored away when the Protestant revival in 1558 rendered them useless; after the many changes it is not unlikely that some churchwarden had preserved them for possible future use. "Drye fatte"; a box, packing-case or large basket (Halliwell).
  • 15. Feb. 2, 1568–9.
  • 16. Hour glass, cf. n. I, p. 169, Churchwardens' Accounts of Ludlow (Camden Society); and Journal Brit. Archæ. Assoc. xxix, 131.
  • 17. The accounts contain no further reference to this incident. "Prented," qy. imprinted— took an impression of, perhaps with felonious intent.
  • 18. Small room or closet, vide note 3.
  • 19. Nails.
  • 20. i.e. Plastering.
  • 21. Lock.
  • 22. Coals.
  • 23. Elizabeth's accession day; first time it is mentioned in these accounts.
  • 24. Tagged laces.
  • 25. Bag.
  • 26. A helmet without a visor or other protection for the face. State Pap. Dom. Eliz. lxiv, I, contains a full list of the arms due from various inhabitants of this parish. "The comon Armour charged" on the parish was 6 corslets, 6 pikes, 6 calivers, 6 morions, 12 swords, and 12 daggers.
  • 27. The total of expenditure has been changed; so has the balance, but, by an oversight, the original has been left in the paragraph.
