APPENDIX 2

Guildhall Library MS 25, 188 (formerly St. Paul's Cathedral) is a table of fees in the London Consistory Court for 1598. It measures 46 ½" long by 10 7/8" wide (118.11 cm x 27.62 cm). For the table of ecclesiastical fees compiled by Archbishop Whitgift in 1597, see John Strype, The Life and Acts of John Whitgift (Oxford, 1822), vol. II, pp. 377-81. The table is reprinted in John Ayliffe, Parergon juris canonicici anglicani (London, 1726). William Warlowe's 1610 deposition (item 1595) serves as an informative gloss for the Consistory Court Table of Fees since it provides the daily wages of a labourer: 'he worketh as a labourer in any kind of worke sometime for xiid a day and sometime for 8d a day and meate and drinke'.
