The wardens (or master and governors) of 'godsguifte colledge' were fined for non-appearance at the Manor Court in 1632, 1634, and 1636, the heirs of Edward Alleyn in 1633, the governors (or masters) and wardens of 'Godsguifte at Dulwich' in 1637–42, 1645–8, 1652–6, 1658–9, and still in 1857. Edward Allin, gentleman, appears as a defaulter from 1642 for several years, only in 1646 at the same time as the Dulwich College wardens, but he was probably a different man from the actor (pp 112, 116, 120, 124, 126, 128, 132, 140, 144, 146, 148, 150, 153, 157, 172, 175, 177, 179, 184, 192, 203, 220).
