  1. The state and court officers, the king's 'towns of war', castles, parks, etc., bishoprics and deaneries, etc., about 1605-6
  2. Some general lists follow at fol. 42v, the descent of qu. Elizabeth, the number of parish churches in each county, pensions and fees lapsed or granted Mich. 1613-Mich. 1614 (including Casaubon's death and the continuation of his pension to the widow and son) and the king's debts in 1616, the last two added to the volume
