sentence he pronounced hym as an hereticke excommunicate, and to be giuen vp forthwith to the secular power, namely to the shiriffe of the citye of Carmarthen, Maister Leyson. 

Commentary  *  Close

Notice that in 1563, this is followed by a comment of Ferrar's denouncing vestments. It was probably lost when Foxe replaced the account of Ferrar's execution in 1570.

And also after that done, denounced against hym the sentence of degradation, fyrste, putting vpō him al their priestly vestures (which

Maister Ferrar at the same tyme, openlye and publyckly called in englyshe ragges, and relickes of Rome, as the register recordeth) and after depriued hym of the same: The copye of whyche sentence, as well of hys condempnation, as of hys degradation, here foloweth.

¶ The sentence of condemnation agaynste Byshop Farrar. 
Commentary  *  Close

The accounts of Ferrar's examinations in Carmarthen and the copies of his condemnation and degradation were taken from official records which are now lost. They may well have been sent to Foxe by the person or persons who sent him the records of Ferrar's troubles in Edward VI's reign.

Commentary  *  Close

This account of Ferrar's execution, replacing the account in the Rerum and 1563, first appeared in 1570. With its specific details, particularly the mention of Richard Jones, it is undoubtedly from an eyewithess.

being condemned and disgraded, he was committed to the secular power, who not long after was brought to the place of execution, in the Citye of Carmarden, where for lacke of wood & other fuel, he was burned wyth turffes & soddes, which was to him a more greuous torment: but praysed be God he suffered it paciently.
