"Cod. Lambeth 272 contains a list of the householders in 93 out of the 107 parishes in the city of London, together with the rentals paid for the houses and the tithes paid. The return was compiled by the clergy and aldermen of London in response to an order of the king in Council dated April 22, 1638." Dale chose to transcribe only the rents, not the tithes. "Three hundred copies only printed for the editor," notes the NYPL catalog.

This page mostly contains lookups I made for others; thought they could be useful to others searchers besides those who contacted me about this text, which is available at the NY Public Library, call number ARX (London). The order here is that of the book, which is arranged by parish. Lookups were: Boon, Hampson, Hopkins, Kirby/Kerby, Parker, Whitehead. There were no entries for Bedford, Buller, Josselyn, Marlowe, Shockley, Streeter, Stout, Strickland.

May 21, 1638. A certificate made by the parson to the King's Most Excellent Majestie by the names of the parishoners that pay Tithe to him, the estimation of what rent they pay, & the tithe that they now pay him by the yeare as followeth:
