* i96S 


MUCH of the early history of Cambridge has centred in 
the church and parish of Great St Mary. The church- 
wardens' book, which is here printed and is the earliest now in 
the keeping of the parish authorities, is therefore a document 
of great importance to students of local history. The Council 
of the Antiquarian Society agreed to publish it if transcribed, 
and after a very long interval it now appears. 

Copious extracts were printed by the late Mr Sandars and 
Canon Venables in their '' Historical and Architectural Notes 
on the Church," published by the Society in 1869, and the MS. 
was largely used by the late Mr Charles Henry Cooper in his 
invaluable " Annals of the Borough," but the book touches on 
so many subjects of interest that the full transcript will justify 
its appearance. 

It may be stated here that this is the first of a series of 
parish account books which extend to the present time. The 
Vicar and parishioners take much interest in these and other 
documents in the church chest and preserve them with all 
care. The thanks of the Society and transcriber are due to 
them for allowing the volume to be removed for the purpose of 
transcription, and for the facilities they have given for reference 
to it many times in the course of the work. 

Professor Skeat and the Rev. Edmund Gough de Salis Wood 
have been good enough to give their help in the glossary, and 
Mr William Henry St John Hope, Assistant Secretary to the 
Society of Antiquaries, has also put his stores of knowledge on 
such subjects at the disposal of the editor. The Rev. Henry 
Paine Stokes, LL.D., Vicar of St Paul's, Cambridge, kindly 
solved the last difficulty in the glossary by furnishing the 


explanation of the position of the Shraggerey in Cambridge in 
time to include it in the index. 

The correctness of the copy is vouched for by the fact that 
it has been compared with the original by Mr Alfred Rogers, 
of the University Library, both in MS. and in proof, a pre- 
caution the more necessary as the accounts of each year are 
mostly in different hands and were entered evidently by the 
churchwardens themselves, whose writing was of all qualities, 
but generally bad. The staff of the University Press have 
also shewn themselves as capable as ever of dealing with the 
difficulties caused possibly by similar qualities in the hand- 
writing of the editor. 

Members of his household have also encouraged the editor 
in a long task by transcribing important portions of the MS. 
themselves, and to them and their memories he offers his 
tribute of gratitude. 

The editor hopes to issue subsequently some notes on the 
book, but is anxious not to delay the appearance of a work 
which may be useful to students in so many different directions, 
and these will appear therefore as a separate tractate.

Memorandum that M^ Wilh'am Balden late of this parish haberdasher 
deceased, by his last will and Testament the said yeare, did gyve the sum

putting foorth of poore Children of this parish to be Apprentices, which 
said sume was accordingly paid by his Executor. 

318 a] Aprill the third. 1621. 
ffor that wee fynde much trouble from yeare to yeare in choosing of

in regard of the smalnes of the fyne heretofore payd and thereby breedeth 
a great inconvenience and distast to the Parishioners.

Wee therefore all couclude, agree and ordeigiie, that whosoever hereiifter 
according to the ancient custome of the parish shalbe chosen Church- 
wardens, and any of them doth refuse the Office ; Every such person shall 
paye for his fyne to the vse of the parishe ftbrty shillings* presently vppon 
such refusall. 

Also it is agreed by the generall consent of y® Company of this Parish 
then present ; That whereas it hath bene a custome for the Church- 
wardens new elected to pa^e the overplus of the charge of the breakefast ; 
Every man that hath borne office of Churchwarden & being present at 
the said breakefast paying xij*^ and the others that have not borne that 
Office paying vj^ 

That from henceforth the said overplus above the mony receaved of the 
pai*ticuler persons as aforesaid shalbe borne out and allowed to the Church- 
wardens for that yeare, of the generall stock of the parishe, So that the 
charge of the breakefast, doe not amount to above the suwme of fower
