N.B. (*) "Henry Delves of Duddynton, co. Cestr' Esq" is written in place of something else; in line 17 of text the name "Thomas Stanley" appears where Henry Delves should be written. The name Stanley seems to have been originally written and the name of Delves substituted, and in two places the substitution has been omitted one in line 17 referred to and another in the last line of the text where something (presumably "Thomas Stanley") has been rubbed out and the gap has not been filled.
