  • 101. The ever recurring recognition of the Queen's movements was not necessarily the outburst of overflowing loyalty, cf. Mackyn's Diary (Camden Society), June 1563, "in the mornyng ther was sett on dyvers chyrche dorres, be-cause that he sayd that they dyd not ryng when that the quen went to Grenwyche, and that they shuld not open the chyrche dors tyll that he had a nobull (6s 8d) on evere chyrche by the water syde from Tempull bare to the Towre, but he cold gett no thyng yett." "He" was a harbinger of the Queen.
  • 102. vide note I, p. 200.
  • 103. Embroiderer.
  • 104. Skins, probably for covering coffins. Large number of coffins due doubtless to the prevalent plague.

  • 106. i.e. "re-voicing" the pipes of the "Principal" on the organ, vide note 3, p. 158.

  • 110. Pall.
  • 111. Part of the military equipment of the parish.
  • 112. Not to be found by subtracting the given total of expenditure from the receipts. That process gives a balance of £7 15s. 6½d., to which must be added the 13s. 4d. disallowed on p. 199, making a balance of £8 8s. 10½d. The odd 6d. seems to have originated in the mind of the scrivener.
