In a pedigree of the Sutcliffe family examined and confirmed by William Segar in 1624, which has been preserved in Harley MS. 1051, ff. 147b, 148, 'John Sutcliffe one of the Esquiers to King James' appears as the son of Solomon Sutcliffe of Mairoyd in the parish of Halifax and nephew to Matthew Sutcliffe, Dean of Exeter; his wife is described as 'Alice Da: of Luke woodhowse of Kimberley in the County of Norff. Esquire'.

The first edition was entered on the Stationers' Register on 30 January 1633. Jonson has merely versified the table of contents.
