Dedication Of A Church At Louth.--" Cur tent' ibm die lune px' post fm sci Mathie Apli tc Ola plita et querel in hac cur' t in cur' p'cedent' pendenc' ponunt, in ren vsq px' cur' causa hui9 ven'abil festi sci Winefredi mert'is in cui9 honore ecclia de louth dedicat' est tc"--Extracted from Court Roll of the Manor of Louth, 25th Henry VI.
