Subject: Coroner of the Queen's Household
I am having some arguments about the nature of Marlowe's Inquest. These
are related to the forbidden subject, so I will not discuss them here
(although I will point out that I am on Shakespeare's side), but I would
like to ask whether anybody knows of any other surviving records of
inquests (not including the one held on Marlowe) held by William Danby,
Coroner of the Queen's Household, or by any of his predecessors or
successors as Coroners to the Royal Household in the time of Elizabeth I
or James I. I would be very grateful if anybody with access to such
documents could either send me a copy of them (in English translation,
if possible, in Latin if not) or simply point me to the printed source
or even the archive that contains them.
Many thanks for your help.
