Supplementary information relating to the benefice or to other data given in the display. A source button after the note gives the full reference for the information. If a reference abbreviation in the note is not expanded in the source button, the full reference can be found in the References menu (forthcoming). If the note mentions a benefice by benkey rather than name, it can be found via the benkey search option.

     Notes:
1 The individual rector, presented by the secular patron (RegPecham1 86), presumably presented to the vicarage; no contemporary presentation to the vicarage has come to light. For the later chequered history of the patronage see HastedKent5 459-60, RegChich1 260.
