Footnotes

1 This meant that on becoming precentor, a man had to res. any preb. of York which he held.
2 Sic, foliation replaces pagination from f. 175.
1 Both Mountjoy Cradock M.A. and Richard Wright petitioned ineffectively for the preb. of Driffield ? Aug. 1660 (Cal. S.P. Dom. 1660-1 pp. 225, 226). Thomas Harward B.D. was pres. by king to preb. of Driffield 29 Sept. 1660 (P.R.O., C 66/2917), and was coll. (sic) by abp. 25 Oct. (Inst. AB 6 p. 304). Although he appointed a proxy for instal. 1 Nov. (D/C Misc. 1660), he was not instal., presumably because Tobias Wickham had already been instal. to precentorship with Driffield annexed.
2 Said to be on res. of Tobias Wickham last precentor and on d. of George Stanhope last preb. of Driffield.
