Aldermen whose Burials are Recorded in Machyn's Diary.

[The worthy diarist, who appears to have been an undertaker by profession, records the funeral arrangements in elaborate detail, not forgetting the 'grett dener' which usually followed the 'berehyng.' The diary deserves notice if only for the grotesque orthography, which throws into the shade the most inspired efforts of the modern 'Simplified Speling Sosieti.']

  • 1. The names of those Aldermen are lost in the MS. which is defective, but that of T. Lewen is supplied by the Editor [J. Gough Nichols] in the notes (p. 334) and that of J. Lowen may be safely inferred from the date, combined with the fact which is shown in the text that the person whose funeral is here described was a leading member of the Drapers' Company.
