catiō of the deuil, shal lay any smal trifle to my charge? or shall I be thus handled, nothing proued to my face against me? Alas I haue alwais hated errors & heresies. Content thy self Hare: there is now no remedy, thou must either doo thy penance or be burnt, said the cōmissioners. Thus haue you harde howe Raphe Hare did spede.

For a millers boye saide he, came into Brokes kitchen, and saw half a Lambe lie a rostinge at the fire. Where the truth is, that the said sir William Smith during all the Lent, came neuer once within þe said Brokes house. And it is as true also that the saide Richarde Long vpon a displesure taken with his wife, went shortly after out of his own house, to the Iuttie end of the hauen at Caleis, wher desperatly he drowned himself, not one boy but many men, women, girles and boyes seinge hym miserably taken vp again stark dead, al which lamented his pitefull ruine. A terrible ensample vnto al such as are ready to forswere them selues on a boke vpon malice, or what so euer other cause it be, a thinge in these daies ouer rife, euery where, and almost no where regarded as it oughte to be.

Foxe’s wording here is vague; by ‘them’ he here means the heresy commission being held at Bath House.

Yet he must nedes, no remeadye was there, recant at Calleis openly in the pulpet, and so to depart the towne and Marches. Whiche recantation he did in such sort, as he in effect denied nothīg at al that he had before preched or taught, but yet it satisfied somewhat his aduersaries malitious harts, in that it bare the name of a recātation, and therewith, was done according to the commissioners order. Whilest the other hereticke Raphe Hare stode before him with a fagotte on his shoulder. And also it semed vnto suche of the Councell of Calleis, as hadde by their letters complained so greuouslye of the pernitious sectes and heresies of that towne, that now, what with the foresaid Brokes inueying againste the vi. articles in the Parliament house, and the punishmente of these two heretickes, that they had wonne their spurres, by makinge of suche complaintes: In so muchas the matters fell oute as you here.

By ‘them’ Foxe now means the Privy Council. These passages are out of chronological order. Butler had been summoned to appear before the Privy Council in late July of 1539.

then Commissary of Calleis, whom they wold haue burdened with the maintenaunce, or at the least waye sufferaunce, of the foresayde Adam Damlip, whiche preached so longe tyme there, and was not by him punished, who for his defence answeared, that the Lorde deputye and the whole councell there so highlye entertained, and so frendlye vsed the saide Damlip, and with their owne presence and highe commendations outwardlye so allowed and commended his doctrine, that it laye not in him to do otherwise then he did: and therfore humbly besought their Lordshippes and other the commissioners to be good vnto him, at whose handes, after long attendaunce geuen, he was discussed, and so returned home again, and being dismissed of his commissaryship.

Then was the foresaide Broke, who remained prisoner in the Flete called before them againe, against whome it was obiected by some of the councels letters of Caleis, that he was a seditious fellow.

Among these accusers besides the reast, was one Richard Longe, an other Fraunces Hastings, men of armes, who charged the forenamed T. Broke, with one Geffraye Louedaye Esquire, for staying & maintaining þe forsaide Adā Damlip at Caleis. As who had promised vnto him a stipend to preach such heresies and pernitious opinions, as afterward he taughte there: and that these ii. dailye gathered many seueral sums of mony, for thentertainment of the said Adam. Howbeit þe foresaid Hastings failed in the proue therof. For Louedaye proued that he was viii. daies before Damlips cōming to Cales, and during xiiii. dais continually after he began to preach abiding at Paris, there occupied about necessary affairs of Charles duke of Southfolke. And Broke during þe said time was at London daily attendant in þe Parliamente house, wherof he had inoughe to beare witnes againste that vntrue surmise. After that, came two at once, against the sayd Broke wel armed as they thought, who hadd notonly consulted together before of the matter, and had put it in wryting at Caleis beside their conference and talke by the way, kepyng company from thēce hither, but also had obtained from the Lord Deputye and others of the councell speciall letters as is aforesaid. And among other one letter vnto the bishop of Chichester for the earnest and spedy furtheraunce of the aduauncemente of their accusations against Broke.
