  1. This is an unusual meeting, seemingly a convention of the king, council and 'commissioners appointed by his highness, his nobility and estates to take order with the coin'. With no burgesses in attendance, this is strictly not a convention of the estates, instead possibly an augmented privy council. See A1593/12/1-2 for a meeting similar in nature. Back
