INTRODUCTION. 



The present volume contains a continuation of the Index of the 
Wills proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury commenced 
by Mr. J. Challenor C. Smith, and covers the period 1558 
to 1583, that is to say, the first twenty-five years of the reign of 
Queen Elizabeth, and the archiepiscopates of Matthew Parker 
and Edmund Grindal. 

The majority of the twenty-four registers which" contain the 
wills here calendared possess preambles, and some few of them, 
notably Register " Martyn," ^ have been enriched by the addition 
of coats-of-arms in the margin. These arms are of considerable 
interest both to the herald and to the genealogist, and it has been 
thought desirable to include a complete list of them in the following 
remarks upon the registers. 

CHAYNAY. 

The preamble to this register is as follows : — 

Liber secundus Testamentorum dec^dentium per Prouinciam 
Cantuariensem habentium, etc. Quorum Testamenta auctoritate 
Venerabilium virorum Decani at .Capituli Ecclesie Metropolitice 
Christi Cantuariensis ad quos omnis et omnimoda jurisdictio

p. 103, by Mr. Oswald Barron.

his successor.

and the various City Companies are well represented. 

In 1579 there occurs the will of Jerome Claren, "Steward

INTRODUCTION. XXV 



" master of the quiresters " at Westminster, which, by the way, 
appears to have been called a " cathedral church " for many years 
after it ceased to be the seat of a bishopric. 

The spirit of enterprise manifested by the English under 
Elizabeth is exemplified by the wills of persons dying abroad, 
such as — 

Edward Clarke, 1566, who "died in Muskovie," and 
Arthur Edwards, 1580, who " died in Persia." 

In 1569 will be found the will of Sir Robert Peckham, who died 
at Rome, where he made his will. He wished to be buried in the 
church of St. Gregory in Monte Coelio in that city, but his heart 
was to be enclosed in lead and sent to his brother and heir in 
England. 

Those who are interested in out-of-the-way forms of wills might 
refer to that of William Farrar, 1583. He purposed travelling to 
Ireland, and wrote his will in the form of a letter addressed to his 
sister. 

Of the founders of Schools there are the wills of: 

Sir Roger Cholmeley, Knt., Highgate, 1565. 

John Glynne, Lewisham, 1568 (refounded eventually by Abraham 

Colfe in 1652). 
William Lambe, Sutton Valence, Kent, 1580. 
Lawrence Sheriff, Rugby, 1567. 

For school benefactors reference should be made to the wills of 
John Turner, 1580 (Barnet and Tonbridge) ; David Morgan ap 
Thomas, 1581 (Lewisham) ; Maurice Griffith, Bishop of Rochester, 
1560, and Thomas Davies, Bishop of Saint Asaph, 1573 (Bangor). 
There is the will of James Jacob, Usher of " Powles Scoole," 1 560. 
Also of Jerome Hilton, 1580, and William Adams, 1583, both 
schoolmasters, the former in London, the latter at Newington 
in Kent. 

This list of " testamenta notabilia" might be indefinitely 
prolonged, but enough has been said to show the interesting 
nature of the wills here calendared ; and since it has not been found 
possible to add an Index of trades and professions, etc., to this 
volume, it is hoped that the above notes may be found useful 
by students. 

c 



XXVI INTRODUCTION. 



The history of the Prerogative Court was fully gone into by 
Mr. J. C. C. Smith in his preface to the First Volume of this 
Index (Vol. X of The Index Library), and nothing more need 
be said here on the subject. Attention, however, is directed to the 
will of John Bullock, of co. Essex, 1560, as being a case in which 
a P.C.C. grant was renounced on the ground that the testator had 
no goods outside his own diocese. 

The task of compiling this volume, which contains references 
to about 14,000 wills, was most kindly undertaken for the British 
Record Society by Dr. S. A. Smith. To him the warmest thanks 
of all historical and genealogical students are due, thanks which 
will shortly require renewal, since his further instalment of the 
Calendar, bringing it down to the death of Queen Elizabeth in 
1603, is nearly ready for the press. 

When the slips had been prepared from the Will Registers, the 
whole was carefully checked from the Probate Act Books by 
Mr. E. Cheyne, of the Principal Probate Registry, whose name 
is a sufficient guarantee for the thoroughness with which this 
portion of the work was effected. To him the Society is under 
very great obligations. 

To Mr. J. Challenor Smith the Society is indebted for the 
Index Locorum to this volume, the preparation of which was no 
light task, involving constant reference to the wills themselves 
besides extensive correspondence. In the course of his work on 
tiiis Index Mr. Smith was enabled to make several corrections in, 
and explanatory additions to, the Calendar, all of which are 
embodied in the " Notes and Corrections," and it is to be observed 
that some names of places occur in the Index Locorum on the 
assumption that all such notanda have been attended to. 

It will be noticed that in many instances this Calendar gives 
no information as regards testators' abodes beyond the mere 
diocese. In the Index Locorum such entries are placed under 
the seat or cathedral town of the diocese. Consequently, for 
example, a few Surrey wills may be found under Hampshire 
(Winchester), and so on. 

An arbitrary division in the index between London and 
Middlesex was found unavoidable, but this will probably facilitate 
research. 



INTRODUCTION. XXVil 



It is impossible to close these introductory remarks without an 
acknowledgment of the very material assistance rendered to 
the Society in the publication of this volume by Mr. G. E. 
Cokayne, Clarenceux King of Arms, which has enabled it to 
be completed and placed in the hands of students in much less 
time than would otherwise have been the case.
