Alice the wife of William Walleys of Colchester, hath submitted her selfe, abiured her erroneous opinions, asked abolution, promysed to dooe her solemne penaunce in her parysh Church at sainct Peters, on Sonday next, and to continue a Catholique and a faithfull woman, as long as God shall sende her life. And for these couenauntes, her husband standeth bound in fiue pound, which Alice is one of the nine women of this your Indenture, and that she is bigge with Childe. Wherfore she remaineth at home, and this done in the presence of þe Bailifs, Aldermen, & townclerk. And for that maister Brown was certified, there was no curate at Lerdon, he inquired who was the Farmer. Thanswer was made sir Francis Iobsō, who is the parson. They of the Questmen aunswered, sir Roger Gostlow. When was he wt you? Not these fourtene yeres. Howe is youre cure serued? Now and thē. who is the patron? My lord of Arundel. And within short time after sir Francis Iobson came with great curtesy vnto my lord Darcies place. And of al Gētlemen about vs I saw no more come in. Sir R. Smith 

Commentary  *  Close

Robert Smith was an alias of John Pullain, the ex-rector of St Peter Cornhill in London (see 1563, p. 1605). Pullain had gone into hiding in Colchester with his pregnant wife. Although under Marian law Pullain's marriage had no validity as he was a cleric, he had not abandoned his wife. Pullain had been active in preaching heresy in London and the privy council sent orders to Colchester for his arrest. But Kingston is having to report to Bonner that Pullain had eluded capture. Pullain's wife would deliver a daughter, named Faith, and the Pullains would flee into exile, reaching Geneva (Garrett, Marian Exiles).

of Kent, came to Colchester the. 28. day of August with his wife big with childe, of late diuorced, taken on suspition, examined of the lords, and master Brown told me that they haue receiued letters from the counsell, for the attachment of certain persōs, & especially of one priest, whose name is Pullen (but his right name is Smith) doubting this priest to be he the said Pullē, al-

though neither he nor his wife would confesse the same. wherfore he lieth still in prison. but surely this is not Pullen. If it please your Lorddship to haue in remembrance, that the householders might be compelled to bring euery manne his owne wife to her owne seat in the churche, in time of diuine seruice, it would profit much. And also ther be yet standing hospitals & other of lyke foundation about Colchester, which I haue not knowen to appeare at any visitation, as the master and Lazars of Mary Magdalene in Colchester, the Proctor of sainct Katherins Chappell in Colchester, the Hospitall or beadhouse of the foundation of Lord H. Marney, in Laremarney, the Hospital and beadmen of lytle Horksley. Thus presuming of your Lordeships goodnes, I am more then bolde euer to trouble you, with this worldly businesse, besechyng almightye God to sende youre honourable Lordship a condygne rewarde.

From Eastthorp this present. xxx. of August.

We found a letter touching the maryage of Priestes in the handes of the aforesayde syr Robert Smith. Also I desyred maister Brown the dooer of al thinges, to requyre the audience to bringe in theyr vnlawfull writynges and bookes, who asked me if I had proclamed the proclamation. And I saide, yea. Then he sayde openly on the Bench, that they should be proclamed euery quarter once. And then take the constables and officers, and they alone take & punyshe the offenders, accordingly.
