19 The total (118) is smaller than last year, but still very high. There is a gradual decrease in the succeeding years, 1585–1590 inclusive; in 1588–89–90 the totals were 81, 49, 80 respectively.
20 The first definite mention of the custom under this name.
21 To make a foot-bridge over the ditches.
22 Surveys made in 1549 and 1575 are in the Vestry Minute book. Stow (Survey of London) gives some account of the lawsuit in 1592–3–4. The above is an isolated entry. The Vestry Minutes contain no mention of any petition or suit touching Common Lands at this time.
23 The Cathedral was burnt in 1561, and so damaged that the roof and steeple had to be pulled down, and in 1580 it suffered by earthquake (vide p. 319). Many useless attempts to rebuild it were made and money is said to have been collected for the purpose, but there is nothing to show how much this parish contributed. (London Past and Present).

25 The arithmetic is obviously wrong; should be either iv days or viijd.
26 The chief motives of the subsidy granted in 1584–5 were the expenses of the Irish war and the need of a scheme of coast defence, cf. n. 2, p. 234; and p. 293.

36 Middlesex County Records. March, 27 Eliz: True Bill that at St. Martin's on the night of that day John Deepinge, alias Oliver Tayler of London broke into the Church and stole eight bombards called calyvers worth four pounds, a buff jerkyn worth 10/-, 2 swords and 2 daggers worth 20/-, and a piece of iron and steel called a head piece worth 2/-, three instruments called "flashes and tucheboxes" worth 2/-, A little earlier Deepinge had broken into the house of Christopher Hayward (the vicar) and stole a woollen cloak worth 40s, 8 rings of gold worth £10, 48 pieces of coined gold called "rialles and soueraignes" worth £24 and £24 in numbered money. For both offences he pleaded and obtained benefit of clergy.
37 In Aug. 1585, Elizabeth signed a treaty by which she agreed to supply 4000 men for the service of the Netherlands. It was in the ensuing campaign that Sir Philip Sidney lost his life at Zutphen.
38 Which bound those who received it to hold themselves ready at all times appointed. Most commonly used of soldiers (Manley's Interpreter).
