Footnotes

1 This list from the Contarini papers in the Marciana, and probably drawn up by the Secretary of the Ambassador Piero Contarini, almost certainly belongs to the first half of the year 1618. Buckingham is described as a marquis, the title being granted to him on 1/11 January, 1618; Bacon appears as Lord Chancellor, an appointment which he received on 4 January in the same year, but not as Baron Verulam, which he became on the 11th July following, while Cavendish and Compton are entered as simple barons, though they became earls in the early days of August. The value of the later dates is somewhat discounted by the fact that Lord Ellesmere's name remains on the list, though he died on 15/25 March, 1617. The list may be compared with a very similar one in a MS. in possession of the Society of Antiquaries (No. 40), dated 1616, which the editor has been permitted to consult by the courtesy of the Society, and of Mr. St. John Hope the Secretary. The list printed here will be found lacking in many particulars, several officials and whole departments (e.g., Duchy of Lancaster, Star Chamber, First Fruits) being altogether omitted. The fees given also differ materially in many cases, some differences being due to obvious mistakes of the transcriber, whilst others may be attributed to the reforms which had been effected in the interval by Sir Lionel Cranfield.
