i. 217, l. 25. no silks. See ii. 313, where the note should be that the best
version of London Lickpenny does mention silk, though Stow's own copy
has simply 'Paris thred, cotton, and vmple'. Nicolas, Lond. Chorn., 263
and 267; and Skeat, Specimeans of English Literature (ed. 1879, p. 26).
i. 336, l. 13. Beatrix his wife. Stow has made a confusion here.
Sir Richard Burley (d. 1387) married, as her third husband, Beatrix,
daughter of Ralph, Earl of Stafford, and widow of Thomas, Lord Ros of
Hamelake, who died in 1383. Beatrix died on April 14, 1415 (G.E.C.
Complete Peerage, iii. 84, vi. 401; Beltz, Memorials of the Garter, 293).
i. 339, l. 7. Pembrooks Inne. See ii. 350. John of Brittany, Earl of
Richmond, had licence on May 5, 1331, to grant to Mary, Countess
of Pembroke, the castles, towns, manors, and lands which he held in
England (C.P.R. Edw. III, ii. 110).
i. 347, l. 28. parish church of St. Mildred. On Faithorne's map the
church is shown on the northside of Basing Lane, and this seems to be
the position indicated by Stow, cf. i. 348, l. 13. But the existing church
is on the southside, and there does not seem to be any record of a change
of site when the church was rebuilt after 1666.
ii. 102, l. 18. Chanon Row. See ii. 375. 'The Chanon Row' is mentioned
in a letter of Anthony, Earl Rivers (d. 1483), ap. Additional MS,
25459, f. 316.
ii. 104, l. 28. six wooll houses. See ii 375 and 378. on Dec. 15,
1437, Henry the VI granted of John Beket and Thomas Carre. the six
houses called the houses of the king's wools. The houses were part of
the foundation of the College of St. Stephen, but had been lately returned
to the king for a certain compensation. This grant was surrendered,
when on Nov. 16, 1443, the king granted the houses to the Dean and
Canons of St. Stephen's in frank almoign(C.P.R.Henry VI, iii. 123,
