A Table declaring the reignes of euerie king of this Realme, sithen the con∣quest, and the yeares of our Lorde, and Monethes and dayes of their beginning, and also the names and surnames of all the Maiors, and Shirifes of London, with the yere and daye of their entrance into their charge. And for the better vnderstan∣ding of this Table, the same is deuided into .iiij. partes or titles. The first is the yeres of our Lorde, then the Monethes and dayes wherein euery King began his reigne, then the yeres of the Kings reigne, and lastly, the names of the Bayliffes, Shirifes and Maiors, placed iustly vppon the verie day of the Moneth, wherin euerie of them entred into their office. And for example, I would know in what yere of our Lorde King Henrie the .viij. began his reigne, and in what Moneth and daye, and who wt that Shirifes also Maior of London. First I seeke our among the Kinges, and at the last, I finde King Henrie the .viij. and the first title I finde the yeare of our Lorde that he began his reigne in, which was .1509. and the .xxij. day of the Moneth of Aprill. And immediatly followeth the Moneth of September, and the .xxviij. daye, wherein George Monnoux and Iohn Ducket entred into their office of Shiriualtie, and like∣wyse foloweth in the same yere the Moneth of Octo∣ber the .xxviij. day, wherin Thomas Bradbu∣rie entred into his office of the Mayral∣tie of London.
