This chapter presents a 6 January 1561 letter by Thomas Churchyard to Julian (or Julia) Penn, mother of Baptist Hickes, and of Michael Hickes, Burghley's private secretary. The letter concerned rooms he had taken on behalf of Oxford and his men. Because Oxford could not or would not produce the quarterly rent of £25, his aged servant Churchyard was compelled to assume the debt by taking a bond for £50 on 24 December. It also presents a 18 May 1591 letter by Oxford to Burghley, where he railed against two of his servants, Thomas Hampton and Israel Amyce; cites his claim to Waltham Forest in Essex; and proposes the acquisition of Denbeigh.

Keywords:   quarterly rent, Thomas Churchyard, Thomas Hampton, Israel Amyce
