The book belonged to a William Benefield in the sixteenth century. A John Benefeild was schoolmaster in Lyminge in 1604 (CCEd).
It then seems to have been one of the books given to the Chapter Library by Canon William Bray in the early 1640s (Benefactors' Book, f. 106r).
It was listed in the 1649 inventory of the Library (CCA-DCc-LA/1/6).
