  1. Goodare thinks that the most prominent attendees of this parliament can be 'guessed at' from an unusually well-attended privy council meeting the following day. See J. Goodare, 'The Scottish parliamentary records, 1560-1603', Historical Research, 72 (1999), p.263, and RPCS, iii, pp.6-7. A contemporary chronicler listed the lords of the articles before the legislation, D. Moysie, Memoirs of the Affairs of Scotland, 1577-1603, ed. J. Dennistoun (Maitland Club, 1830), p.12. Back
