Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 580B: Parker Certificates (Ely) (Missing leaves from CCCC MSS 97 and 122)

Placeholder Show Content


CCCC MS 580 is now divided into three distinct volumes, A, B and C, each containing tabulated copies of the returns of one of the three dioceses of Canterbury, Ely and Bedfordshire sent in answer to Parker's request for information concerning incumbents sent out in 1560 and 1561. They were once part of the similar returns material found in CCCC MSS 97 and 122 but had at some stage been removed to the college's modern archives before being returned to the Parker collection in 1959.
