31 Bedman (Bidham)'s chantry in BC has no priest recorded against it. It is probable that one of the 3 conducts in the next paragraph served this chantry.
32 In BC the scribe at first wrote 'the king's title cannot appear for lack of evidence: respect' quousque examin' in Cur''. But a subsequent note reads that Rice Williams, schoolmaster of the children, had received £8 10s p.a. and was awarded a pension of £5; Robert Tanner had also received £8 10s and Hamounde £8. In addition the parishioners paid Thomas Martin, parish clerk, £6 13s 4d and Thomas Mundy, sexton, £4.

63 In BC, Cheltham is the only priest specifically said to be financed from gild lands: all the others appear to be chantry priests in the parish church, unconnected with the gild. Also named there are John Cotton, organ player and conduct; William Mathew, conduct; John Cotton (probably the same), clerk to the brotherhood, and Robert Wilson, sexton.
64 In the original, the much faded Memoranda appear to read at this point, 'the yearly value of the same parsonage is £10 which the vicar payeth as a pension of the clear yearly value of the said vicarage which over and above the yearly (... illegible) £3 10s 11d.'
65 For a later copy of the inventory of goods, see Walters, 639.
66 BC. He also received a pension of £6 13s 4d from Reading abbey (ibid.).
67 Lloide (BC and E 101).
68 But in BC it is firmly ascribed to William Harriott.
69 But BC has James Rimyger, master of the singing children and organ player, receiving £17 10s p.a. and the following conducts with their several yearly wages: William Andrews £9, Thomas Fyan £8, Edward Paladye £8 and Robert Tynner £7 10s. In addition, James Willet is named as under-sexton at 6s 8d.

102 Henry Fitzwilliam, said to have been supported by the Salters, is named in BC, along with Henry Cockes paid by the Grocers (see 212).
103 Not named in BC.
104 ½d disappears in the totals.
105 BC has also Thomas Horner, conduct.
106 Title now largely obscured by parchment overlaid during repair.
107 The priests named here in BC are: John Turnor, William Skipton, John Chatteryse, Stephen Bisseter, Thomas Gallesburgh and John Elliottesson.
108 This entry is very faint. For the will, see Husting, ii, 354.
109 This entry is also very faint and partly illegible; partly over-written in a later hand probably to improve legibility. For the will, see PROB 11/2B fo. 53.
110 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos. 105–12, which is insistent that there are no chantry priests, only stipendiaries here.
111 William Smythe (BC).
112 Thomas Horde "mortus" (BC).
113 Richard Lawson (BC).
114 Matthew Grenewod, conduct, is also named in BC.
115 Roger Ponder and Martin Cater (BC).
116 Richard in Valor.
117 Possibly altered from £1 16s 0d.
118 John Taylor.
119 BC also names Nicholas Jackeson (see 212) and Robert Stokes (see 211), with Thomas Assheton, conduct.
120 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 84–100.
121 In addition to Carre, BC also has Jervys Linche here, but he should probably be one of Cresswick's priests in the following entry.
122 BC has only Ralph Collier here.
123 LR 2 has William.
124 '6 years' crossed out.
125 BC has also James Sharpulles, conduct.
126 In addition to the priests named above, BC has Thomas Tailor and Philip Duly here (cf. 222), and John Frankelyng, conduct, who may have been Brocket's priest.
127 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 77–83, where there is a note that at Easter 'all the priests we have do not suffice'.
128 It is unclear whether these gifts to the poor are included in the figures first stated.
129 BC records that Thomas Well, priest, serves here, paid by the Drapers from Maud at Vine's land; but cf. 224 where a different allocation of resources is indicated. BC also has Henry Barker, conduct, here.
130 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 113–20.
131 William Bowthe (BC).
132 Robert West in BC.
133 In BC this is described as Henry Barton's chantry, but there is no priest here, only Peter Tippe, conduct.
134 Querne crossed out. In LR 2 it is St Michael Paternoster.
135 BC also lists Thomas Artes (see 212), Richard Abbot and Thomas Garnet supported by the Skinners (see 192 where Nicholas Dunston is named instead of Abbot).
136 Richard Clerke, conduct (BC).
137 £1 6s 8d altered.
138 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 70–6.
139 BC names 2 further priests here: John Mede and Richard Ungle, at the chantry of Sir William Estfelde; but cf. 194.
140 Richard Harbert in BC.
141 Or possibly "liii s iiij d".
142 But John Palmer, Thomas Somerton and John Fyssher were maintained here by the Merchant Taylors: see 211; and Hugh Jones, conduct, received £6 15s p.a. for his service and for teaching singing children (BC).
143 Not specified.
144 See Husting, ii, 7. John Williams, priest (BC).
145 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 65–69a.
146 Ludgate (LR 2).
147 The first 2 entries are now largely illegible, but have been compared with E 101 and Hennessy, 265.
148 Will in Husting, ii, 121.
149 Will in Husting, ii, 446.
150 Reyley is not named in BC and Whorleston appears only as a conduct.
151 John Kirkeby is the priest named here in BC, and Sandelonde is only named as a conduct.
152 Parish of St Giles Cripplegate (SC 6).
153 Parish of St Michael Queenhithe (SC 6).
154 Perhaps Henry Alred, conduct, who is also named here in BC.
155 'and Robert Parson' is interlined.
156 Altered from £8 0s 8d.
157 Erased; Penne in Harley 601.
158 This rather complex formula is explained by reference to Husting, i, 404, where it is clear that Newburye gave the lands in reversion to St John's.
159 Others named in BC are Ralph Shepard and Richard Straunge, priests (cf. 192), and John More, organ player and conduct.
160 An interlineation reads '... but yet answerable'.
161 SC 6 has John Walshe.
162 An original declaration concerning these chantries, made by the commissioners and bearing the clearly erroneous date 1 January, 1 Edward VI, is bound into the back of an annotated copy of Joseph Maskell, Berkyngechirche iuxta Turrim (1864) in the British Library. I am indebted for this reference to Revd Philip Blewett.
163 William Cresmore, conduct, appears in BC: cf. 47 n. 2.
164 'The brotherhood or chapel of Barking within London'.
165 BC names Robert Smythe, priest, here. In addition John Spence helped the first 2 chaplains at mass. John Fotehedde sang a daily anthem. William Smith and William Cresmore sang the Lady mass and a further conduct was Henry Forster.
166 For a later copy of the inventory, see Walters, 633–5.
167 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 120–8.
168 A full return for this brotherhood in 1546 is in LR 2/241 fos 68–81.
169 BC has Lingard; in addition Robert Gregorye, priest and Richard Harres, conduct.
170 The first 2 entries on the membrane are both faded and damaged.
171 Cf. Husting, ii, 532.
172 The pounds figure has been altered from £18, but still does not tally with the deductions.
173 But see also 211.
174 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 82–3.
175 BC and E 101 also record one William Kynton here.
176 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos. 27–9.
177 Though Miles Sandes is named in E 101 and BC.
178 But cf. 193: Thomas More.
179 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 40–1.
180 John Blomer morrow mass priest (BC).
181 The dedication of the obit is obscured by the form of words chosen; it was probably for the donor.
182 Recte 'Jackelyng' (as below and E 101), or Jacklyn (BC).
183 See 220.
184 The parchment has been torn and fitted together incorrectly; this is the most likely reading.
185 The 2 parishes are described together in one entry. The first 3 headings refer to St Peter Paul's Wharf and the last 2 to St Peter the Poor.
186 Augmented by a donation from the Armourers, see 215: James Payn, priest. For the original return with detailed information on foundations and property, see Guildhall MS. 12140/3.
187 But called Parkenson in BC and E 101. In 1550 he said he was 54 years old (PRO, Chancery Town Depositions, C 24/23 Bright v. Lytlecote and Lambert).
188 BC names also John Fissher, stipendiary and William Tofte, chantry priest, maintained here by the Goldsmiths. See also 222.
189 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 108–14 which also records a brotherhood of St George here.
190 In BC and E 101 the priest named here is John Bowyer. See also 214: Richard Nelson.
191 Despite all these bequests for priests, note that no payments are recorded, and no pension was paid afterwards (E 101).
192 Exton (Husting, ii, 447).
193 'Little St Bartholomew'. Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos 66–71.
194 Richard Stocketon, priest (BC).
195 The inventory is given in LR 2, and printed in Walters, 636.
196 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos 7–8.
197 The Papey is not otherwise mentioned here; see 105.
198 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos 115–18.
199 Thomas Shapire (BC). His income seems to have been augmented from the endowment following.
200 Robert Haddowe (BC). All the augmentations following appear to have gone to him.
201 Recte Ardern as in the next entry.
202 BC also names here Stephen Busshopp, conduct.
203 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 84–7.
204 Peter (LR 2).
205 BC has 2 further priests here, William Dean (? see 222) and John Smythe (see 191).
206 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos 102–3.
207 Original figure erased, which probably explains why the totals do not balance.
208 Not detailed. E 101 has Richard Dowtye, Christopher Rowche and John Plough, fellows; and John Blacket, William Moises, James Amyson and Thomas Blackden, 'ministers'. BC describes the 4 latter as conducts, but their respective incomes (£2, £1 10s, £1 6s 8d and £1) suggest they were lesser officials.
209 Not included in the certificate.
210 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 23–4.
211 Cf. (for 1546) the original return in E 301/89.
212 E 301/89 makes clear that this endowment was for the morrow mass, and that there were other church lands from which the stipend was supplemented, making a total of £7 6s 8d p.a. Henry Unwin is named as the priest in BC.
213 Charles Wentworth and Richard Smithe (BC).
214 BC also records that Yardeforde left a further bequest to the Mercers' Company to find a further conduct and a clerk; they each received pensions and are named respectively as John Cockes and Robert Risbie; cf. E 101.
215 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 34–9.
216 William Vincent and Richard Conigrave are named in BC.
217 Priests named in BC are Thomas Winstanley, Nicholas Rose, Edmund Frevell and William Leake; with Robert Merchaunt, conduct.
218 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/242 fos 82–90.

220 BC names no chantry priests here other than Warden as above, but the following conducts are listed: Walter Tempest, William Squier, Jasper Rolf, John Walker and Robert Walker.
221 i.e. in the churchyard (LR 2).
222 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 101–7.
223 Priests named in BC are Henry Woodhouse, James Rowe and Thomas Graye, with Roger Markes and William Monday, conducts.

228 Stephen Fountayn, priest (BC).
229 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 30–3.
230 Lewis (Lodovicus) Pestyll, priest (E 101); Lewes Pestell (BC).
231 William Grene (BC).
232 See above, n. 1.
233 Thomas Rutter (BC).

236 Priests named in BC are Edward Ravensdayle and Richard Jenkinson.
237 'St Andrew, East Cheap'.
238 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 23–6.
239 BC has in addition John Cornysshe, John Stote and Gilbert Cade, all said to be paid by the Mercers and Henry Dent by the Goldsmiths. But Cornysshe and Cade were paid by the Salters (see 191).
240 But all those named in BC are said to have been supported by the Merchant Taylors: John Turnour, George Sharpe (see 211), John Willyamson (cf. Wilkenson, 211) and Richard Palmer.
241 Not detailed here, but SC 6 gives a good idea of the lands. See also Caroline M. Barron, The Medieval Guildhall of London (1974), 40–2 and 53–5.
242 Priests named in BC are Roger Asshe, Robert Rogers, John Richardson; and Robert Foxe (see 192).
243 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/241 fos 25–6, which includes an inventory of goods.
244 BC also has Robert Sandewiche (cf. 210).
245 Pokesson (BC).
246 10d crossed out after £7. BC has Thomas White here.
247 BC and E 101 mention only a 'Thomas' Walpole here (see 191). This, and the use of the singular ('priest') in the Memoranda, suggest that other endowments had lapsed.
248 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 91–2.
249 Richard Smythe STP (E 101). Doctor of Divinity in BC.
250 Six fellows are named in BC: Richard Pitte, Thomas Tudball, Richard Tailor, Christopher Nelson, Richard Fawconer and William Wheteley; and 4 choristers: William Gowghe, Henry Bridde, Francis Welber and Henry Cholmeley. Richard Knight, conduct, is also listed in E 101.
251 Cf. (for 1546) LR 2/243 fos 60–4.
252 Perhaps those who follow, though BC has John Lewes as priest here.
253 Not named in any of the sources.
254 Thursday in Holy week, see Husting, ii, p. xiii.
255 'It appertaineth to the parson' entered in the margin in another hand.
256 Cf. (for 1546) E 301/120 which includes detailed rentals and gives information which in some respects conflicts with that given here: for example in naming the donors of Farrendon's chantry as John Foster and Thomas Polle.
257 Nicholas de Farrendon (Husting, ii, 19).
258 Other priests named in BC are Christopher Reynoldes (see 209), Richard Mery and Robert Paternoster, said to be at Robert Butler's chantry maintained by the Goldsmiths; with Edward Lutwick and Reginald Churcheman, conducts. Cf. 222.
259 In addition to John Mole [sic] in the next entry, BC records only one other priest here, John Wulton, in a chantry founded by William Pinchbecke, a former rector.
260 Corpus Christi chapel (SC 6).
261 Thomas Wynston (Winstanley in E 101) and Thomas Robson in BC.
262 No value of benefice given.
263 BC has John Meriell.
264 This was previously a chapel in the parish of St Olave Jewry (J. Stow, Survey of London, ed. C. L. Kingsford, 2 vols. (Oxford, 1908), i, 283).
265 The shillings figure has been altered.
266 Priests named in BC are Robert Biggen (see 194) and James Whitebury.
267 See 199.
268 William Rilande (BC).
269 Total damaged by gall.
270 The master of the Papey, Robert Fox, received a pension, along with Richard Bee and George Strowger, wardens; and Richard Byrehall, John Barrett and John Mordock, poor men (E 101). For an inventory of the goods of the brotherhood, see Walters, 644. BC styles the institution 'the house of priests called the Pappey'. For the history of the brotherhood see T. Hugo, 'The Hospital of Le Papey in the City of London' in Trans. London and Midd. Arch. Soc., v (1877), 183. The BC entry is there printed in full (p. 216).

274 No separate heading is given, but the brotherhood is mentioned in the inset entries.
275 Sic. The same spelling is given in LR 2.
276 E 101 has Robert Goldar, 'minister', in addition to those above.
277 The inventory of all the goods and plate appears in LR 2/243 fos 56–9.
278 In this and similar subsequent entries, 'of' may not always mean 'for'; see introduction p. xvi.
279 Torn away; supplied from Dugdale, 381.
280 The original return in the archives of St Paul's cathedral (WD 26) explains that the three chaplains recorded in the subsequent entry (Chantry of Robert Munden ...) were priests of Powlteney's chantry. The endowments had become insufficient, so 3 other chantries were annexed to provide them with sufficient income: Whitney received Munden's endowment, Richardson that of Mylforth and Plessis, and Blosse that of Lovell, each in addition to his share of the Powlteney endowment.
281 'Poor' does not appear in the original return (WD 26 fo. 3).
282 Mylforth in WD 26: William Melford, archdeacon of Colchester, d. 1336.
283 See above, n. 3.
284 Recte Walden, see WD 26: Roger de Walden, bishop, d. 1406. Roger Waltham's chantry is recorded separately in 110 below.
285 Warmyngton in WD 26 fo. 5. He was priest of this chantry in St Paul's but Mason was attached to another of Walden's foundations at Tottenham.
286 Wood Street (WD 26).
287 Recte £18 13s 4d.
288 Holmes college, see 113.
289 Aldersgate in WD 26.
290 £39 8s 4d (correctly) in WD 26 fo. 7v. The priests are named there as Henry Rawlyns, William Stryckett, Thomas Maynarde and John Parker. BC has their gross income as £10 each.
291 WD 26 fo. 8 explains that a separate endowment had been made for Wendover. The scribe has telescoped the entry. Omitted from BC.
292 Recte £2 17s.
293 1506–22.
294 Maintenance of chalice, books, vestments 'and all other ornaments' (WD 26 fo. 9).
295 The division of the entry for St Paul's into sections 108–11 is the work of a later indexer, purely for convenience, largely coinciding with the changes of membrane. It does not represent any subdivision of the original return in WD 26.
296 WD 26 fo. 9v notes that this sum includes 2s 6d distributed to the poor each Good Friday.
297 One for the founder and one for Godfrey Wysenham (WD 26 fo. 11).
298 Richard Martyndale, priest (idem).
299 Friday Street (ibid. fo. 12).
300 Poor choristers (idem).
301 Batmanson (ibid. fo. 13). See also 113.
302 John Heytor is priest in BC. In WD 26 fo. 13v 'Robert Hudson' crossed out in favour of 'Hyetor'.
303 £3 16s (correctly) in WD 26.
304 John of Gaunt d. 1399. See also Lancaster college in 113.
305 Much of the top of this membrane is illegible, and may well have been so at the time of Caley's transcript used in Dugdale, 384. The figures for Wokyndon's chantry have been supplied from WD 26; all the other information in square brackets is from Dugdale, checked in SC 6. BC gives the priests' gross incomes used for calculating pensions.
306 Including the 'wages of the lighter thereof' (WD 26 fo. 14).
307 Robert Sewter, priest (idem).
308 Robert Hay (ibid. fo. 15); Hayes (E 101); Haies (BC).
309 Christopher Bricket, priest (BC).
310 Thomas Banester, priest (BC). WD 26 has slightly different figures including a deduction of 6s 8d for bread, wine and wax, but the totals there do not balance.
311 Richard Nelson, priest (BC). WD 26 has a further deduction of £1 quitrent to Master Curteaux, with a corresponding £1 less in the clear remainder.
312 John Basse, priest (BC). See Bruera's chantry in 108.
313 Alexander Smyth, priest (BC).
314 See next entry.
315 A hundred starlings to the poor on 10 days each year (WD 26 fo. 18v).

330 Northburgh, bishop, 1354–61.
331 SC 6.
332 Edward Turner, priest (WD 26). Items in brackets supplied from Dugdale.
333 The top of the membrane is badly faded. Caley's reading in Dugdale, 387 is also suspect and has been compared with SC 6. No indication is given of the provenance of the revenue here recorded but SC 6 m. 92 records the lands and rents in question. Particulars of the higher clergy mentioned in the text and in the notes below may be found in J. Le Neve, Fasti 1066–1300, i, St Paul's, ed. D. E. Greenway (1968) and 1300–1541, v, St Paul's, ed. J.
