Excerpt from The Manuscripts of the Corporations of Southampton and King's Lynn, Vol. 3: Eleventh Report, Appendix

Assembly Books, that afford many fourious illustrations of the social life of the borough in the seventeenth century. Of the minor minutes of these last-mentioned folios few are more startling than the orders given to churwomen (sic), to place themselves in regular service, if they would escape Whipping. For instance, on 28th April 1615, Mary Quinton a churwoman was this daie sent for to this house and charged to gett herselfe into service presentlie uppon payne of a whippinge. On the same 'day, two other churwomen were ordered f'>at their perilf to place themselves in domestic service within the next month. In the ensuing report extracts are given from all the afore-men tioned books. Notice is also taken in the same report of (1) the folio of the Letters that passed between John Flamst'eed of the Greenwich Observatory and his friend William Molyneux,. The Dublin mathematician, from 2nd September 1681 to l0th May 1690, and (2) the Letter Book of Samuel Molyneux, of Trinity College, Dublin, containing copies of letters interchanged by Samuel M'olyneux and his scientific friends between 9th January 1707 and 19th December 1709.
