  • Notes 
    • "A lighter side of Richard's life is shown in one of the 'Extracts from the Steyning Church-Book,' a paper read by Rev. Thomas Medland on 12 July 1855 and published in 1856. On 13 May 1519 'Rychard Pellet and Willyam Gardener, lat wardens of the kyng play ... made ther accompt for the time of ii yere, and all thyngs accomptyd and allowyd, ther remaynyth clerely to the sayd churche iiili viis iiiid, and the said Richard and Willyam to be clerely dischargyd and acquit.' A footnote explains that 'kyng-play' was a popular entertainment in which the leading characters played the part of a king, such as King of May or King (or Lord) of Misrule."
