Footnotes

1. Preb. said to be vac. by d. of John Hayward, possibly the rector of Coton, Cambs. who d. by 5 Aug. 1651 (burial, Coton, Cambs.) (Cambs. R.O., PR Coton; P.R.O., PROB 11/218, PCC 187 Grey). This may be an error, although it is possible that Hayward, rather than Manwaring, secured possession of the preb. on the d. of Anthony Methwyn.
