Notes:

[After the end of the Wars of the Roses, in the fifteenth century] the green sward that had been trampled by unaccustomed feet is re-levelled for the bowls (Fig. 1378) (p. 384)

Here, the game appears to have regular bowls and a recognisable “jack,” or smaller ball, unlike the game shown in Fig. 794.
