A little off topic. In “Percy Church, a Forgotten Royalist,” The Genealogist, 8:214, Prof. A.H. Church refers to the extensive will of John Church(e), alderman of Maldon, Essex, p. His will, presumably proved late 1559/60, is "in the Westminster Calendar" (see p. 219). Does anyone know to which court he is referring? I don't see the will in the Essex Record Office's catalogue, nor does it appear in Ancestry's London wills. That said, if I knew which court was calendared here, I'd give that source a much closer look.
The only other references to "Westminster Calendar" seem to refer back to Church's work.
