  3. Possibly William Lambert. (ML)
  4. Matthew of Westminster has since been proven to have never existed. Stow was likely citing works written by Matthew Paris. (ML)
  5. Stow, Munday, and Dyson would have consulted the now-lost manuscript of the Vita Erkenwaldi owned by St. Paul’s Cathedral and transcribed by Sir William Dugdale in his history of St. Paul’s (Wing D2482; printed 1658). See Whatley. (JJ)
