Fritinancy: Word of the week: Jabroni
Long before there was jabroni, though, there was jiboney (spelled in various ways), whose origin, according to the Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, is “uncertain” but may be derived from Milanese giambone, which means “hambone.”

Thus, each group of triple dots signifies a charred portion of the script. Words partially destroyed are contiguous to these dots. Where Buck has crossed out a word or a phrase in favor of another, we designate the rejected characters in a rounded bracket immediately following. Words or letters obviously required to complete sense are also given in rounded brackets. The elongated brackets represent Buck’s own enclosures.

But previous to this agreement, the earl committed great waste upon the castle hill, and, by warrant from him, most of the buildings, except the Keep were rased to the ground, The castle from this time ceased to be a place of residence; the parks which were three in number … were parted and let to several tenants in allotments.

As for the Priory at Earls Colne, it is well known that the final acts of vandalism and desecration were committed in the eighteenth century by the then owner, John Wale, who rebuilt the mansion house of the de Veres within the precinct, using the ancient monuments of the Earls of Oxford for chimney-pieces, and made a ha-ha on the site of the Priory Church, in the artificial banks of which many human bones were once exposed to view.

The house he chose was on “Peter’s Hill”, between St. Paul’s and the river, near the Blackfriars playhouse and the Wardrobe. It was a large old house, which had been divided in two. Buck rented one section for his office: the other was the property of Sir William Hicks, formerly secretary to Lord Burghley, whose mother-in-law (B. M. Ward, The Seventeenth Earl of Oxford), or mother (Mark Eccles, Thomas Lodge and Other Elizabethans, ed. C.J. Sisson),” Mistress Julia Penn, let some or all of the rooms in 1590 to the Earl of Oxford and his men!

Shakespeare in 100 Objects: Shakespeare's Signet Ring
These ideas are speculative. The ring’s provenance is doubtful (unearthed in a field next to Holy Trinity churchyard in 1810), and further complicated by the fact that the actor David Garrick displayed a similar one in his Temple to Shakespeare in the 1750s.
