Henry Machyn in Clerkenwell and Blackfriars in Smithfield, London - 12 April, 1559
April the twelfth was brought from Clerkenwell unto the Blackfriars in Smithfield with two heralds of arms—Mr. Clarenceux and Mr. Somerset—Sir Richard Mansfield, knight, with two great white branches, two dozen torches, and four gilt candlesticks and four great tapers. And the place and the friars' church hung with black and arms. And twenty-four priests and clerks sang prayers, all Latin, and dirge where he died and where he was buried.
