Warrant from the said Sir Henry Mountague, dated 7 November, addressed to the said Mr. Longe, recites that whereas Isabel, Lady Stafford, wife to Edward, Lord Stafford, and Edward Stafford their eldest son, stand indicted for not resorting to the parish church of St. Andrew's, Holborn, for the space of eleven months, the said Lady or her son not having been at that time nor by the space of six years dwelling or residing in or near the said parish; therefore it is thought fit that stay should be made upon any further proceedings upon that indictment against them until further order shall be received therein.
