Trewe, John. Petition to the commissioners of the peace for Surrey and Sussex.
Image Details: 
Trew, of Helingley, Sussex, complains Sir Edward Gage, "an extreme persecutor of the gospell," had placed the petitioner without lawful cause in the pillory and had cut off his ears. He begs redress. The petition was no doubt issued between November 17, 1558, the accession of Queen Elizabeth and August 25, 1559, the death of Cawarden, the first justice of the peace named. Endorsed in Cawarden's autograph: "John Trye byll for his eares cuttyng".
