Footnotes

1 Thomas de Lenia and Thomas Llyn (see p. 14) are possibly the same person, but as there is insufficient evidence for this identification the names have been given separately.
1 See p. 13 n. 1.
1 A list is given in abp. Cranmer's reg., 12 Feb. 1534, of prebendaries and canons of Bangor (Lamb., Reg. Cranmer f. 160). As no distinction has been made between the two offices, all persons who occur at that date have been listed here among the prebendaries, not among the canons of Bangor.
