For details about the 1597 foot of fine, see the general essay for Shakespeare's purchase of New Place. The foot has a useful endorsement (the second image) recording the occasions when the final concord was "proclaimed" in open court, as required under the current legislation. This was done immediately, and in the three successive legal terms. The date of the first proclamation, May 9, indicates that the legal business had been tidied up in two days.
