  • How to
    request
Horoscopes of the Lawton family, with their explanations, much injured in parts. The names remaining are:
  1. Lettice (b. 1597)
  2. An (b. 1600)
  3. William (b. 1602)
  4. George (b. 1603)
  5. William (b. 1568)
  6. And another William
The first and most elaborate is of a lady whose name is lost. Fols. 1-2 are a parchment leaf, once the binding of the book, and bear part of a plea between William Cowde and Thomas Lowstun of about 1600. There is no trace of Aubrey in the volume.
