Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern red leather label, with ‘Pii ii. Secret. Lib. vii. T. xxxvii,’ and on the bottom edge of the volume is the usual contemporary description: ‘i. An. iii. Pii. Lib. vii.,’ the reading of which is doubtful. Inside the volume is a thick parchment flyleaf, on one edge of the inner side of which survives half of a notary's sign-manual and a slight fragment of what is presumably a public instrument. There are no Rubricelle. The volume contains ff. i. to ccccviii., on the last of which is the usual ‘Gaspar Blondus.’
2 Also written ‘Newbygyng.’
3 Perhaps representing an earlier form ‘Huuter’ i.e. ‘Hunter.’
4 in villa Calisie Cantuariensis diocesis. Below, ff. 185d. and 303, and above, Reg. Vat. DIII, f. 286, Calais is described as in the diocese of Térouane (Morinensis diocesis).
5 The dispensation by pope Eugenius does not occur in Cal. Papal Letters, Vols. VIII and IX.
6 Cf. above, note to f. 104.
7 The ‘o’ is uncertain.
8 Cf. above, note to f. 104.
