    On 29 May 1581, Typpin appeared and denied that the article charged against him was true, and claimed that he was able to prove that the article aforesaid above was false. The lord (judge) granted him (that it was) so. Wherefore the lord (judge) assigned him to prove (it) at the next court. And on 30 May of the year aforesaid, Typpin appeared and introduced Richard Sherlocke and Thomas Smithe of the same town as witnesses, who, being sworn, (the holy gospels having been) touched, say (English).
