Other identifier: TNA:PRO, PROB11/8, fo. 292v.
Other contributor: George Smith
The following conventions were employed when transcribing the document: the line spacing, spelling, capitalization, underlining, emphasis, deletions and punctuation follow the manuscript; reconstructions of suspensions are in italics; ‘u’ and ‘v’ have been rendered according to the document rather than to modern usage. ‘ff’ and ‘ss’ have been rendered as capitals where it seems clear that this was the writer’s intention. ‘Thorn’ has been transliterated conventionally as ‘th’, but all occurrences have been footnoted.
An output of The Cabot Project (2009-), funded by the British Academy (June 2010-Aug 2011) and Gretchen Bauta, a private Canadian benefactor (May 2011-May 2015).
