‘Mister Byrdes chamber’ presumably refers to William Byrd, lutenist and composer (1539/40–1623), who is also mentioned on each day in guest-lists (not transcribed here) from Saturday, 6 August 1580 to Monday, 15 August inclusive. His name occurs sometimes at supper, sometimes at dinner, sometimes at both meals in the day. Byrd’s association with Lord Thomas Paget got him into trouble in 1583, when Paget fled to the continent.
