  • Endnote

    The same Robert Coney (f 109v) was charged with suffering his company to sell wares during the service time in the entry above.

    The 'Townehowse of Marche' is difficult to locate. No medieval secular buildings remain in the town; the St Wendreda guildhall on High Street, one possible location, was sold in 1571 to Richard Hill and Robert Don, but its public use after the sale is uncertain (VCH: Cambridgeshire, vol 4, p 120, British History Online, https://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/cambs/vol4/pp116-123, accessed 31 August 2021).
