Footnotes

1 i.e. June 24, 1525, to March 25, 1530. "xvj" mistake for "xvij," vide "Note on Dating."
2 They were not the first churchwardens, vide note, p. 13.
3 The second Mond: and Tuesday after Easter, vide p. 31. Monday was the women's collecting day; for the insignificant sums collected by the men. cf. pp. 26, 27, 37, 38.
4 Memorial service.
5 Alyn, apparently the parish clerk, and therefore by right of custom buried in the porch (vide n. 1, p. 8). His wife, and perhaps his family, shared this privilege.
6 Cardinal Wolsey.
7 i.e. in the Church.
8 Vide Strype's Stow, App. ii, p. 21. One of four hospitals for lepers, built temp: Ed. III. There were lazarhouses at St. James and St. Giles. That at St. James came to an end in 1531.
9 Clearly not a person of means—probably a clergyman.
10 cf. n. 1, p. 2 and p. 8.
11 cf. n. 1, p. 2.
12 Either the Easter fee which occurs later as 'token' money, or a collection towards the expenses of "the paschal Light," but the latter is probably what is here called the sepulchre light. Note also the difference between the "Pascall money" and the expenditure on "the pascall."
13 The Rood loft was across the chancel arch; on the centre was the Rood or crucifix flanked by figures or the Virgin and the Apostles. The figures faced west (vide n. 2, p. 162).
14 price.
15 a quarter of 100.
16 Rood light, i.e. lights on the Rood Loft.
17 All Saints' Day.
18 Coals, i.e. charcoal.
19 Note that only burials are mentioned.
20 Vide n. p. 40.
21 The cross-marked wafer used in the Mass.
22 From Good Friday night to Easter morning—a precaution against fire and sacrilege.
23 From this hallowed fire all the lights were kindled at Easter. For a time all lights were extinguished; then first the Great Paschal candle and second the perpetual lamp before the sacrament were lighted.
24 Perhaps some kind of pastille to be burned "to sweeten the Church."
25 A hallowed taper to stand by the font, cf. "the Light that lighteth every man into the world."
26 'Tenebrae' was an office for Wed: Thur: and Friday in Holy Week. During this service all lights were gradually extinguished. The last of the Tenebrae candles was taken behind the altar, and after a short space brought forward again alight, to typify Christ's Resurrection (vide Smith & Cheetham).
27 Probably the same as Tenebrae candles. The Judas candles may be distinguished as the 24 tapers or sises which were fastened on a frame called the "Judas-Cross" or "Lenten hearse" (vide pp. 64, 74, 83, 149).
28 Paving tiles.
29 Eaves-board.
30 The Feast of the Name of Jesus, August 7.
31 July 2; a festival instituted in 1389 A.D., in commemoration of the Virgin's visit to Elizabeth.
32 A cloth used to drape the 'Herse,' which was similar to a 'catafalque.'
33 hinges.
34 Thursday after Trinity Sunday. A great festival on which the sacrament was carried in procession, accompanied by banners, flags and torches, to various parts of the parish, where portions of a special service were performed. The clergy often wore garlands in this ceremony (vide pp. 91, 105, 108, 122, 124).
35 a cwt:
36 Ordinary decoration for the eve (June 23) of St. John the Baptist.
37 Baldricks—the leather band by which the clapper was suspended from the dome of the bell.
38 basse, ? hollow (Halliwell) or base; Capuls, ? Tapuls for tables. The capital letters C and T are frequently not distinguishable in the MS. Probably "base-tables," i.e. the projecting mouldings near the bottom of the walls (Oxford Gloss. Arch.).
39 Picture.
40 Probably in the South Aisle.
41 The Corporas was a square piece of linen on which the sacramental bread was placed during consecration: when not in use it was kept in a case. These cases were often of rich material heavily embroidered (vide p. 20).
42 qy. apparels—pieces of embroidery used on the skirts and cuffs of certain vestments.
43 Cover, vide The Oxford New English Dictionary.
44 That is 1530. No rent was received and accounted for in the gatherings for the odd three-quarters of a year on p. 11. This fits in with the assumption in n. 1, p. 1.
45 Ruthall, Bp. of Durham, 1509–1523, succeeded by Wolsey.
46 Alb, a long straight vestment, of white linen or silk, with close sleeves, ornamented with "apparels" (vide note p. 17). Worn during the celebration of Mass.
47 i.e. ornamented with strips or patterns of cloth of silver (Halliwell).
48 i.e. Bruges.
49 Bp. of Norwich, 1501–1536.
50 Curtains probably to hang from the canopy over the altar; the curtains were drawn close during the mass from the consecration to the elevation, when they were thrown open again.
51 When spread out it shows as an exact semi-circle. The straight edge was ornamented by the orphreys (vide note 1, p. 31).
52 This approval of the accounts should probably be dated 1 and 2 P. and M., vide pp. 57, 126, 133. The 10/- was paid in 1555, vide p. 153.
