Henry Machyn in Guildhall College, Cheap, Leadenhall and St Ethelburga's Church, London - 27 May, 1555

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

The twenty-seventh day of May was the clerks' procession from Guildhall College. And there was as goodly a Mass as could be heard, and every clerk having a cope and garland, and with hundred streamers borne and the waits playing. And they marched about Cheap, and so to Leadenhall unto St. Ethelburga's Church, and there they put off their gear. And there was the Blessed Sacrament borne with torchlight about, and repaired thence unto the Barbers' Hall to dinner.
