Sir John Howard is taking some of his people with him to the North of England and he has loaned some of them horses. This has turned up a few words that we don't understand:
Throston Par on bayard Kauser.
We're guessing that a bayard is a type of horse and that Kauser is it's name. But we've no idea what a bayard is! Can anyone offer any guidance?
and I rode my selfe on lyard Hewes.
Similarly lyard? Is it a type of horse? I have a nasty feeling that I saw it a few pages earlier applied to a person . Is it a spelling of Lord? If so, why is his horse called Lord Hewes?
