Notes NOTES: The design is probably by the two royal master craftsmen, William Vertue (master mason) and Humphrey Coke (master carpenter), and this presentation drawing prepared by a specialist draughtsman. The drawing would have been for either Bishop Fox or the Prior and Chapter of St Swithun's, who would give permission for construction in the desired location. The day-to-day supervision of the construction of the chantry chapel would have been in the hands of Thomas Bertie, the cathedral mason. A document dated 1518 refers to the chapel as "newly built".
