  • 16. Elizabeth went to Tilbury on Aug. 8th for the famous review, and returned to St. James's on Aug. 10th (Nichols Progresses of Elizabeth). The Rate Books record "It'm receyved at ye fast wch was kept on ye xiiijth of August xiijs." This was in accordance with the desire of the Privy Council expressed in a letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury (Acts of Privy Council, 23 July, 1588). The Archbishop had already sent a letter to the Bishops on July 10th (Strype's Whitgift, Bk. III, chap. 19).
  • 17. According to a letter in Nichols' Progresses the Queen was to have gone to St. Paul's on Nov. 18th, and Nichols adds that she intended to go to a sermon at St. Paul's Cross on Nov. 17th. Both these visits fell through. Nov. 19, Tuesday, was a holyday throughout the realm. Elizabeth's State Thanksgiving Service was held on Sunday, Nov. 24th.
  • 18. Ratebook for 1589–90 has "It'm receyved at ye fun'all of m' William Cooke whoe in his life tyme was very librall unto ye poore as by ye records here remayninge may appeare. vjs. viijd." Perhaps the son of Sir Anthony Cooke who, with Sir John Cheek, was tutor of Edward VI. William married Frances, daughter of Lord John Grey. A Mrs. Frances Cooke appears in the Ratebooks for several years, as a benevolent parishioner after this date (1589).
