    Notes 
    • Rev. Thomas Morse was presented to the vicarage of Boxted, co. Essex, of which the Bishop of London was patron, in 1573, and held this living until 1578, when he resigned. His successor was presented on 18 March 1578/79. Apparently he continued to live at Bosted until 1583, for the baptisms of his five children by his first wife were recorded there. On July 14 1583 he was inducted as rector of Hinderclay, co. Suffolk, and from about 1594 until his death he was rector of Foxearth, co. Essex. !Marr. Reg. Boxted Essex Enl.
