Footnotes

  • 3. Near the Abbey and the River; belonged to the Abbey of Westminster. It occurs constantly in the 17th century books of this parish.
  • 4. vide Arundels of Cornwall in Nat: Dict: of Biog.
  • 5. vide n. 1, p. 37, and cf. the use of the token in the Ch: of Scotland since the Reformation (Chap. IV, Old Scottish Commun: Plate, Thomas Burns).
  • 6. The Augmentations Court was established by H. viii in 1535; it administered the revenues accruing to the king by the abolition of smaller monasteries. The vestments, for which Henry had no personal use, were distributed to various parishes.
  • 7. The Rouncival was one of the smaller houses abolished in 1535. It was next to the Hermitage (vide note, p. 88).
  • 8. Died in Sept. 1556, vide n. 8, p. 159.
  • 9. qy. Parr or Perry, vide eleven names lower down.
  • 10. Spurrier or spur-maker.
  • 11. For morowmas priest, vide note, p. 34.
  • 12. Guildhall, vide pp. 108, 109.
  • 13. vide note, p. 17.
  • 14. Ascension day.
  • 15. vide n. 4, p. 63.
  • 16. qy. Tenebrae candles, vide n. 2, p. 13.
  • 17. For wax.
  • 18. One of four books (a) Services said or sung in processions, (b) Litanies, (c) Intercessions, (d) Customs and Services for "gang" days when the parish bounds were beaten.
  • 19. Small tapers.
  • 20. Most of the dead were buried in winding sheets only; the parish provided a coffin for fetching the body to the church, for it to lie in during the service and for its removal to the graveside.
  • 21. Previously always called All hallows in these accounts.
  • 22. Christmas.
  • 23. vide note, p. 17.

  • 29. I have not been able to discover their offence.
  • 30. Absolving.
  • 31. I have failed to discover any other trace of this suit. The terms used will be clear from the following description of the legal process involved:—Having entered his plaint or action, the plaintiff proceeds to arrest the defendant on mesne process and hold him to bail. He then serves him with a copy of the Declaration, or formal statement of his demand. The plaintiff then gets the judge to fix a day for the trial and procures a venire facias, or writ to the sheriff's officer bidding a jury (or inquest) come, and, there being a deficiency of attendance, prays a "tales," or supplement from the bystanders. The jury give their verdict, followed by judgment of the court accordingly, and this is registered on the file of proceedings.
  • 32. File.
  • 33. King's silver was money due to the King in the Court of Common Pleas "pro licentia concordandi" (Manley's Interpreter).
  • 34. One dozen and a half.
  • 35. To re-steel the edge (Halliwell).
  • 36. There is nothing to show that this was paid to the Accountants. They were doubtless expected "to forgyve it vnto the sayd churche" as some of their predecessors had done.
