  • 23. i.e. March 1543—March 1544. "Thys yere [1543] was a grete pestilens in London" (Grey Friars Chronicle. Camden Society, vol. 53). This fact is evident from the list of burials. Nearly 150 are recorded; 50 for the whole year would have been unusual, but over 100 were buried in three months (Aug: Sept: Oct:). It will be seen that, of this total, over 40 were buried without any fee, and some 30 more for a fee of 2d. On p. 89 will be found certain entries which should come before those on this page.
  • 24. i.e. Luke.
  • 25. i.e. memorandum, four buried.
  • 26. Norwich house, the residence of the Bishops of Norwich, was purchased in Mary's reign by Heath, Archbishop of York, and became York House, a name previously given to Wolsey's palace, which Henry VIII renamed Whitehall.
  • 27. A tenement or inn called the Swan at Charing Cross. (Proceedings of Court of Augmentation. Bundle 14, No. 4), John Stow (the churchwarden, no doubt), one of the king's household, was plaintiff, and claimed ownership of the inn.
  • 28. The Hermitage—next to the Hospital of St. Mary Rounceval (vide note, p. 103). They occupied what is now the corner of Charing Cross on the left-hand going towards Westminster; part of the site afterwards occupied by the front of Northumberland House.

  • 31. First definite instance, in these accounts, of an appropriated pew, vide n. 2, p. 37.
  • 32. "in great" or "by great" is equivalent to modern piece-work; payment by the quantity instead of by the day.
  • 33. Plastering.
  • 34. vide n. 9, p. 12.
  • 35. Stock.
  • 36. Such assistance was not unusual.
  • 37. Feb. 2; Purification of the Virgin. All churchgoers took candles, which were blessed by the priest and sprinkled with holy water. At the High Mass they were held lighted in the hand, and afterwards taken home as relics.
  • 38. Probably the matin-mass priest.
  • 39. Five books.
  • 40. Arrears of money due during their years of office. It is a note in a strange handwriting.
