Once again, I am delighted to have the opportunity of thanking publicly some of the many people who have helped the research for this volume, especially the staffs of the Bristol Record Office, Cambridge University Library Manuscripts Department, Gloucestershire Record Office, Lambeth Palace Library, Northamptonshire Record Office, Oxfordshire Archives and Peterborough Cathedral Library, and other depositories which I visited briefly or with whom I corresponded. Particular help was given by Dr. Elizabeth Ralph, formerly Bristol archivist, Mr. Lowinger Maddison, archivist of Gloucester Cathedral, Dr. Mark Curthoys, archivist of Christ Church, Oxford, Dr. Diana Greenway and Mr. Brett Usher.

In volume vii of this series, one scholar was inadvertently omitted from the list of those thanked. Dr. Charles Knighton generously shared his lists of the deans and canons of Westminster 1540-72 and I am most grateful for this kindness.
