Henry Machyn in Christ Church, London - 28 December, 1558

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

The twenty-eighth day of December, [John] Christopherson, the late bishop of Chichester, was buried at Christ Church, London, with escutcheons and torches and eighteen staff torches … branch tapers, with four dozen pencels and four escutcheons and a half of buckram and a great banner of arms of the See of Chichester and his own arms and four banners of saints. And Mr. Clarenceux was the herald. And five bishops did offer at the Mass, and three sang masses that day.
