regnal date please
« on: Thursday 14 March 19 20:38 GMT (UK) »
I would be grateful if anyone can make out the regnal date for Charles on here please, from the Tunstall Court Rolls. I think it's the two words before Caroli on the third line.
Sorry it's not a very clear image. I have tried to focus it a bit better.
I just need the date, and I think that's October near the end of the second line.

Many thanks

The regnal year is in line 4:

... fidei defensor(is) &c vicesimo [tertio?] coram Thoma ...

vicesimo tertio = 23rd, but itís too blurred to be certain.

Iím fairly confident of vicesimo (= 20th), and the length of the next word might suggest tertio (3rd). sexto (6th) would also fit the length, but I donít think it starts with s, and I canít see x in it.

23 Charles II would be 1671.

Line 2 has ... undecimo die Octobris ... (= 11th October)

Thanks very much Bookbox.
Sorry it is such a badly focused image.

From the dates I know the person was at these Courts, I'll go with 1671.

Sorry to have been a bit delayed in my thanks - been away catching the last of the summer weather  while it still holds!  :)
