Agreement for the provision for 2 scholars annually for 200 years to be chosen by the Master of the Hospital and the Dean of Canterbury on payment by the Hospital of £6 13s 4d per annum at the west door of Westminster Abbey., 1569-05-22
Scope and Contents
Witnesses: Thomas Colby, esquire; John Whittney; Henry Maynore, gent (gents?) and Matthew Allen, scribe.
The instruction that the scholars are to be known as Canterbury scholars is interlineated thus giving rise to possible confusion with the Canterbury scholars established by John Parker after his father's death, allegedly in accordance with his will.
Appended are confirmations by Matthew Parker as Patron of the Hospital, Lambeth, 23 May 1569 and the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury, 26 May 1569.
