Footnotes

1. Despite the protest of Nicholas Bullingham, archdcn. of Lincoln, that he had a gr. of next pres. made 4 Aug. 1551 by Bp. Holbeche (CA 1547-59 p. 65), and that Bp. Taylor had refused to instit. his presentee.
1. Unlikely to have been pres. by Sir Francis Ayscough, John Tourney, esquire, or their assigns, to whom Bp. Taylor gr. next pres. 4 Oct. 1553 (A/3/6 ff. 378v-379).
1. A layman, and a member of parliament (cf. Commons' Journals I 357b, 420a, 1001 a; Cal. S.P. Dom. 1603-10 p. 154). He probably res. his preb. in favour of Amon Alnwick, who was his wife's relation, shortly before his d., 20 March 1613 (cf. m.i., All Hallows, Lombard Street, London, cited in J. Stow, Survey of London (1618) p. 380).
