Actes and Monumentes Of the Church

This Robert Calye hauynge the conductyng of the saide Gentlemanne from the Pultry, MarginaliaIntollerable braggyng of a vile promotor.woulde nedes hale him throughe Chepeside, the Gentle manne desyringe him to turn some other waye. But the more the Gentlemanne entreated the more fierce was this sely Iacke vppon hym: and drawyng and holdynge hym by the arme, woulde needes hale hym through the hygh strete, that al the world might see what he coulde dooe in his offyce. Maister Gibson desirous to bee ledde without holding, willed and entreated him to lette hys arme loose. he would goe quietly of his accorde with him whether he woulde, onely crauynge that he might goe by him freely without notyng of the people.

The saucye and impotent miser, the Promoter hearinge this, who was scarce able to reache vnto his shoulders: naye (saith he) thou shalte not escape me so, come foorth thy waies. thou shalte not choose but come: and so reachynge at his arme, woulde nedes dragge him vnto the Bishoppe. The Gentleman content to goe, yet lothe to bee notified in the Stretes gentlye requested againe, and againe, that refraininge his holde, he woulde suffer hym to goe of his owne free and voluntarye wyll. he shoulde not nede to feare him. for hee woulde not start from him. To whom the caytiffe, looking vppe to his face: Come on thy way, saith he, I will hold thee fast spite of thy beard, whether thou wilt or no.

Maister Gibson seinge and beholdinge the intollerable braggynge of the wretched myser, and moued therewith not a litle, coulde beare no longer, but saide: Wilte thou, sayde he? and addeth moreouer, protestynge with a greate othe, bitterly looking downe towardes him, that if he did not incontinently plucke away his hand (and so stayed withal) he would immediatelye wring his necke from his body. Whereuppon Robin Papiste, the Promotor, was fayne to plucke awaye his holde, and so proceaded they vnto the Bishoppe, there to bee examined againe before him. I should haue declared before how Boner, as his maner was commonlye with diuers, hadde receiued and procured against him for witnesses, Wylliam Woode, Iohn Babington, Thomas Hawes, Thomas Cornishe, Richarde Lawkenor, Nicholas Groue, and Owen Claydon, to whome interrogatories were also ministred to despose vppon against the said Gibson. The tenoure of the interrogatories were these.

The interrogatories of the witnesses against Gibson were dropped in the 1570 edition, undoubtedly to save paper.
