Further information

  • John Whitgift (1530–1604), archbishop of Canterbury, 1583–1604.
  • Richard Bancroft (1544-1610), archbishop of Canterbury, 1604-10: this can be assumed from the fact that this was the usual descent of books from Whitgift to Harsnett.
  • Samuel Harsnett (1561–1631), archbishop of York, 1629–31.
