Some additional notes and corrections to statements in
The Grey Friars of London can now be given.
Page 3, l. 27. The reference to Giacomo della Marca
is erroneous. But the List of Saints must be later than
the canonization of S. Bonaventure in 1482.
Page 27, l. 7. See Thomas Nashe, Pierce Pennilesse,
p. 74, for a story of Alphonsus, King Philip's confessor,
who was such a moderate man in his diet that he would
feed but once a day.
Page 74, l. 17. In the Chronicle of John of Reading
(p. 128, ed. J. Tait) it is stated that Queen Isabella
"seducta tamen per fratres minores, qui sibi adherentes
semper pejorant, in eorum ecclesia nondum dedicata
xxvij. die Novembris sepelitur." Geoffrey Chaucer
was present in the Greyfriars Church at her funeral.
(According to Murimuth (ed. Hog, p. 65) and the
Lanercost Chronicle (p. 266) Roger Mortimer was
buried at the Grey Friars, London, until his removal to
Page 77, note 6. The reference is clearly to Isabella,
second wife of Richard Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, and
not to the daughter of the Kingmaker. See p. 29.
Page 78, ll. 6–9. The reference is probably to
Margery, mother of Sir Walter de Romesey, who was
born in 1304 and died in 1373, and to her elder son John,
who died before 1346. See Stonor Letters, i, p. xlix.
Page 86, l. 4. In January 1338 Thomas de la
Barre of Hereford left legacies to the Friars Minor of
London, Hereford, and Shrewsbury (Anc. Deeds, C.
Page 94, l. 11. For Bartholomew Thomasin of Lucca,
apothecary at London in 1318, see Anc. Deeds, C. 87.
Page 95, l. 3. Margaret Lenthale was buried at the
Friars Minor at Hereford on 28 Feb., 1424. Reg. T.
Spofford, p. 46.
Page 99, l. 24. John Bloyhou is very probably the
Magister John Bloyow who was Commissary of the
Chancellor at Oxford in 1297 (Oxford Coroner's Inquests:
Oxford Chronicle Co.).
Page 101, l. 12. Sir John de Yatminster occurs in
1344 (Foedera, ii, 16, Record Ed.).
Page 103, l. 4. Henry Wodylston, see p. 150 below.
Page 109, l. 25. Robert Rufford of Edlesborough,
Bucks, of whom an account is given in an article by Mr.
F. G. Gurney in Records of Buckinghamshire, x, 285–91.
Page 115, ll. 23–4. Letters of Administration of the
goods of John Ireby, "curtman," of S. Dunstan in the
West, were granted on 8 August, 1422, to John Dureham
and others (Comm. Lond., More, f. 96). This makes it
probable that the date of John Dureham, who was buried
next to Ireby, was c. 1425; if so, it is one of several
names omitted from the Register in the first instance and
Page 125, l. 20. Peter Trauers: perhaps son of Peter
Travers, Keeper of the Rolls of the Chancery in Ireland,
1465 (Anc. Deeds, C. 831).
Page 126, l. 5. The name should be John Blaste (not
Blasto), as appears from the Grant of Administration to
his wife Cicely on 1 Dec., 1396 (Commissary of London,
Courtney, f. 382).
Page 182, l. 1. Lucius de Marchia is more probably to be
identified with the Friar Lucidus whom Bartholomew of
Pisa (Anal. Franc., iv, 282–3,515) says came from the March.
Page 182, l. 5. John de Alvernia was born at Fermo,
but was not bishop, as stated in the Note.
Page 182, l. 16. Jacobus de Faldrano is wrongly
identified with Giacomo della Marca. The reference is to
Giacomo de Fallerone, as to whom see Sabatier, Actus B.
Francisci, p. 173.
Pages 197–8. See the similar narrative in Lanercost
Chronicle, p. 285, with the more correct date 1335; 1285
is impossible, since Robert was King of Naples 1309–43.
Page 232, l. 19. Mr. A. G. Little has shown that the
lost Chronicle of Friar Richard of Durham was the
original of the Lanercost Chronicle (Engl. Hist. Review,
xxxi, pp. 269–79).
