Footnotes

1 No evidence has been found for Richard Atkins, said by Le Neve-Hardy to occ. 1542. It is not known whether the king appointed a preb. in 1537 (e.g. Atkins ?), and whether Wriothesley was appointed at a subsequent vacancy.
1 Edward Haydon, given by Le Neve-Hardy as preb. in 1555, was in fact the rector of Litton (P.R.O., E 334/6 f. 34v).
