On behalf of John Manyngham against Edmund Caryngton
John Palmer of the parish of St. Katherine Cree of the city of London, where he has lived for seven years, and before that time in the parish of St. Peter Westcheap for sixteen years and more, illiterate, of free condition, fifty years old, as he says. Inducted as a witness etc., he says that he has known Sir John Manyngham for six or seven years or thereabouts, and Edmund Caryngton he first saw and knew on a certain day about which he will depose below, before the feast of last Easter, which day he cannot further specify. To the first article, he says that on a certain day about the middle of the year, before Michaelmas a year ago, which day he cannot further specify, in the morning about nine o`clock, this witness was present in the cemetery of the aforesaid parish church of St. Katherine, together with Sir John Manyngham, Richard Woodlake, Richard Knyght, and Edmund Caryngton, and a certain Christopher whose surname this witness does not know. After many things were discussed between them, Edmund Caryngton promised Sir John, giving his faith with handfasting, saying, "I promise you by my faith and troth to pay you twenty shillings by Easter next coming." And to its other contents he has nothing to depose. To the second and third articles, he says that has nothing to testify regarding its contents. To the fourth article, he says that he cannot testify whether he is of the parish of St. Michael or not, because he had never seen him except on the day and place about which he testified above. To the fifth article, he says that what he said above is true, and he has nothing to testify regarding the fame.
