Return to Subsidy List  

This is a bundle of twenty-eight documents, almost all of them Certificates of Residence, which should properly be included in class E.115 rather than in the Lay Subsidy class, E.179.  One of the certificates, on fo.43, is for a St Saviour parishioner.  The documents all relate to the second collection (first collection of the second subsidy) of four subsidies granted to Elizabeth I in 1601.  Many appear to relate to members of the Queen's Chamber and Household; Thomas Cure was Sadler to King Edward VI, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.  Further details
