First owned by Matthew Gannon who sold the book to Edward Cornford in 1627. The marriage of an Edward Corneford is recorded in Harbledown in 1615 and another in Canterbury in 1618.[1]
The book next belonged to Richard Cornford and was then bought by William Somner (or possibly by his father) in 1634. It presumably entered the Chapter Library on the purchase of Somner's books in 1669.
