ROMAN CATHOLIC FUGITIVES.
[This list is inserted in a folio volume, bound in vellum, containing various documents, apparently copied from the originals. The dates range from the commencement to the end of the reign of Elizabeth, and that which belongs to the ensuing enumeration of religious fugitives is Jan. 29th, 1576, when probably their names were “certified into the Exchequer” as absent from the kingdom contrary to the statute passed five years before. They are placed under counties, but without any other arrangement, and many of the names will be familiar to the ear of the reader. The first that occurs must have been the grandson of the Henry Parker, Lord Morley, who, besides other works, translated The Triumphs of Petrarch, which he presented to Henry VIII., and which was printed by John Cawood. The “John Heywood, Gent.” mentioned as of Kent, was no doubt the old Poet and Dramatist, who had fled the ..country when Elizabeth came to the throne, and who is stated by Anthony Wood (Ath. Oxon. i. 349, edit. 1813,) to have died “about 1565.” If this list were of living fugitives, Heywood survived the date assigned by Anthony Wood about eleven years, and he is known to have been alive in 1570; but it is possible that when the return was made out Heywood was dead, though no account of his death might have been received in England. In Strype's Annals, II. App. to Book ii. No. 1, is a list of fugitives with the same date : it mainly corresponds with what is inserted below, but it omits some names and varies with respect to others. It seems likely that the two lists were made out from the same original J
