4th. May Thursday
From a letter written 4th May by the Archbishop to Cecil, it appears that the warden of Manchester desired to relinquish the trust, “to be converted to some college in Cambridge, who might hereafter send out some preachers to inhabit that quarter, and also by the rest of the revenues maintain some students.” It was suggested that the collegiate estates might be annexed to St. John’s College, Cambridge. (Baker’s History of St. John’s, edit, by Mayor, p. 589.)(7)

A search made throughout Lancashire and the other parts of the kingdom for vagrants, rogues, gipsies, &c. The result was the apprehension of 13,000 “masterless men.” (Baines’s Lancashire, 1868, vol. i., p. 169.)(7)
