Since it refers to Lincoln(e) which is a county in the northern part of
England the "northern parts" probably refers to northern England. You
might want to try the Lincolnshire list. It is quite active.

Subject: Attorney General records
Can anyone on the list advise me where to go for old Attorney General
records, or if there are any?
I want to know if there is anything I can find out on "Peter PHEASAYNT
ESQ. Attorney General in the Northern parts to the late Queen
Elizabeth". This wording is contained in the inscription to his wife,
died 1635, in the Little Torrington church. Would 'the Northern parts'
refer to North Devon or North England? His wife Ione (this is spelt
with upper case i, not l) was 'one of the daughter and coheirs of St
Vincent FVLNETBIE of FVLNETBIE in the county of Lincolne Knight' .
Any help appreciated. I'm stuck!
