Henry Machyn in Kent - 4 October, 1559

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

The fourth day of October went to Bury from Cobham Hall my young Lady Cobham, the wife of my Lord Cobham, late made lord warden of the Cinque Ports, with priests and clerks singing, and two heralds of arms […] And so the dean of Rochester and all the college, both priest and clerk, did sing, and the choristers … and Turner the preacher did preach. And after all done, they went to the place to dinner, for there was a great dinner. And there was a two thousand people that had two pence apiece. And after dinner, poor people had both meat and drink. All this done in Kent.
