Subject:        1580 Earthquake

Does anyone know if there are any records as to whether, and how, the
April 6, 1580 earthquake, in Easter week, whose epicentre appears to
have been Oxford(or at least Oxford appears to have suffered a
reasonable amount of damage), affected Stratford? Apparently it was felt
as far away as London--some sources say even in France, and that there
were huge waves in the sea as well, and lives lost there. I've been
looking for a calendar of events in Eliz. Stratford, which I've found
before, but cannot locate right now. I would be very grateful indeed for
any information, or pointers to sites or books that may have that
information.

Also, was April 6 before or after Easter that year?

Many thanks,
Sophie Masson
