The illusion was reinforced by converting Elizabeth's Henrician cash bequest into property as well (though worth considerably less than the estate awarded to Mary).
Because there were no actual conveyancing documents in process regarding the lands the executor-councilors claimed that Henry had "promised" them, a tripartite indenture was not relevant to complete their (nonexistent Henrician) grants.
The registers of the Privy Council preserve the contemporary distinction between "pencion" (allowance) to be paid out from the sale of royal goods or the Privy Purse and "revenues" derived from property. 23 The question now becomes: what made the executor-councilors alter their initial understanding of the Henrician bequests to Mary and Elizabeth?
