" 167 W. Cauntbrigge. He is described as 'Alderman' in the minute of his election as Sheriff on September 21, 1415, his predecessor in the Aldermanry of Langbourn, H. Halton, being recorded as present also (Letter Book I, fo. 158b). I think there is an error on the part of the scribe. Halton appears to have died in October and it is possible that Cauntbrigge was elected his successor between September 21 and the actual entering of the minute. There is no trace in the records of his serving as Alderman for any other ward before this date. See, however, vol. II., p. 5 (footnote 10), where I have suggested another possible solution of the difficulty.
" 169 Sir W. Chester. The reason for his removal from the Aldermanry does not appear: as far back as November 2, 1571, a deputation of three Aldermen (Sir John White, Sir Roger Martyn and Sir Rowland Hayward) was appointed 'to go to Sir W. Chester to talke with hym concernynge the office of his Aldermanshipe' (Rep. 17, fo. 226).

" 180, 181. Portsoken Ward. The list of Priors of Holy Trinity is incorrect in many points of date: a more accurate list is substituted on p. 418 where, however, the name of Thomas Pomeroy has been accidentally omitted. His dates are congè d'elire April 14: royal assent April 21, 1445: restoration of temporalities February 19, 1446. There was a controversy as to his election, the royal assent being given also to that of William Westkarre on May 23, 1445, but Pomeroy ultimately was confirmed in the possession of the Priorate.
" 180 Richard (de Templo), for died August 14, 1248, read August 14, 1250 (as on p. 371). Richard was acting as Prior March 11 and May 16, 1250 (Ancient Deeds A, 2407, 2294).

Footnote. This note should be read with and modified by what I have written on p. 378 (note 6), where I have shown reasons for coming to a different conclusion as to the true date in question.

" 362 Line 3 from end, for 1115 read 1130 (See Round Geoffrey de Mandeville, pp. 435, 436).
" 363 Mr. C. L. Kingsford in his notice of this volume in English Historical Review (col. 24, p. 137), gives satisfactory reason for identifying the Warda Haconis with Coleman Street rather than Broad Street, in which case Warda Reimundi probably corresponded with Broad Street, thus transposing Mr. Loftie's suggestions for numbers 2 and 19 in his list. Mr. Kingsford inclines to identify Warda Herberti with Dowgate rather than Walbrook; but his identification, like my own, is put tentatively and the apparently contradictory evidence is probably susceptible of the explanation which he offers, that the boundaries of the Ward were not finally fixed in 1130.
" 366 Line 6, for 1317 read 1217. Line 17, Constantine 'juvenis' is identical with Constantine Fitzalulf (line 7).

" 383 J. de Causton, for Bishopsgate read Billingsgate. W. de Pappeworth, for vice Frozte read vice Frowyk. G. de Norton, for vice Swalilyve read vice Swalclyve.
" 386 add footnote. In Hust. Roll 71, fo. 34, the name of Thomas de Grenstede occurs under date March 12, 1344, as Alderman of the Ward in which certain property in the Parish of St. Mary Woolchurch was situate. This must have been one of the four Wards Walbrook, Broad Street, Cheap or Langbourn, and almost certainly one of the two first of these, but there is no trace of any vacancy in any of them (or indeed in any other Ward) about this time to which an Alderman unnamed in Vol. I. of this work could have been elected. Grenstede is not mentioned anywhere else as Alderman of any Ward, and his name does not appear at all in any connexion in Dr. Sharpe's Calendars of Letter Books. I can only suggest the possibility that he was identical with Thomas Leggy, then Alderman of Broad Street, and that Grenstede was a place name—presumably Greenstead, co. Essex, which may have been Leggy's birthplace or residence, but I have found no direct evidence to connect him with it either as native or inhabitant.

" 396 Before the elections for 1382 insert: In Letter Book H, fo. 139b, a meeting of Aldermen on February 13, 1382, is recorded at which John Vyne is named as being present. There is no other indication of his having been elected an Alderman during the year 1381–2. 17 of the Aldermen elected in March, 1381, were also present, the other six being W. Baret (Walbrook), R. Lucas (Cripplegate), J. Southam (Langbourn), E. Olyver (Dowgate), J. Heende (Candlewick) and H. Fastolf (Tower). Vyne had already served for Queenhithe and Cordwainer, but the Aldermen of both these Wards were among those present. If there is no error in the record Vyne must have succeeded one of the six Aldermen named who must have resigned or been removed during the year, as all six were living later, but there is no evidence to fix or suggest a more definite identification of the vacancy which he filled.
