Thomas Crosfield was a Yorkshire rector and Fellow of Queen's College Oxford. He recorded a wide variety of University and political and religious events, writing mainly in English and Latin. The diary entries are very well annotated.

I 636
[August 31] My Lord of Carlisle being in Devonshire sent his man to ye Court at Oxford to petition leave that he might be absent from his Bishopricke by reason of ye dangerous dispersing of ye sicknes in ye North: but ye King would not grant it because he thought it unreasonable that a maine pillar of ye country should be absent in such needfull times.

The bake’t meates serv’d up in St John’s were so contrived by the Cooke that there was first ye formes of Archbishops, then Bishops, Doctors &c seen in order, wherein ye King & Courtiers tooke much content.

Dureing the time of ye sicknes at London & Newcastle some audacious & impious knaves out of covetousnes & a wretched desire to gett gaine were wont to kill some persons yt were in health under pretence of being searchers, entred into ye houses yt were shutt up, & rifeled them, after yt they had first made away ye parties shutt up, either by cutting their throates or smoothering them in bed. Untile the house as tho they had bene sett a worke by the owners, & so entred and robbd the owners of such plate & other things as they conceived to be fit for their turne.
