As I've said a couple of times, the bulk of Margery Kemp's book was lost
for about 400 years.  It had been held at Mount Grace Abbey, but they
managed to lose it somehow.

Dear Joseph,

I copied this from the McBride website on Aemilia Lanyer. Lanyer "was
the daughter of Baptista Bassano and Margaret Johnson. Nothing certain
is known of Lanyer's mother but that she was buried in Bishopsgate on
July 7, 1587 (Rowse 14). But it is possible that she was the Margaret
Johnson born ca. 1545-1550 who was the aunt of Robert Johnson
(1583?-1633), lutenist and composer, musician of Shakespeare's company,
and, later, musician to the court of Charles I (DNB s.v. "Robert
Johnson"; Woods, Lanyer, 3-4)."

Therefore you have discerned rightly "Margery" has also that possible
source.

Florence
