from A London Provisioner's Chronicle, 1550-1563:

The fifth day of August the Queen's Grace removed from Eltham unto Nonsuch my Lord of Arundel. And there Her Grace had as great cheer every night and banquets. But the Sunday at night my Lord of Arundel's house made her a great banquet at his cost, the which King Henry VIII builded, as ever was seen for supper—banquet and masque with drums and flutes and all the music that could be till midnight, and as for cheer has not been seen nor heard
