The dating of the accounts on pp 15–16 is a bit confusing, as 22 Henry VIII did not begin until 22 April 1530, whereas Palm Sunday fell on 10 April in 1530, so that Palm Sunday 22 Henry VIII was actually in 1531. The date 1530 is obviously the error, for the payments which follow these receipts are dated Palm Sunday 22 Henry VIII to Palm Sunday 23 Henry VIII. Furthermore, the set of accounts which follow these on p 17 are identified as being for 22–23 Henry VIII and are in fact another set of accounts for the same year as those on pp 15–16. The churchwardens are the same, as are all the amounts which occur in both accounts, such as those for paschal money, for Edmond's rent, and for the amount of the profits from the church ale. In fact it appears that the account begun on p 15 may originally have begun as the regular account for the year, but instead became an account detailing the receipts and expenses of the church ale, while the final account for the year is that given on p 17, which lists only the profits of the ale without details, as do most of the other years' accounts in this book.
