Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Memorie degli scrittori del regno di Napoli by Eustachio D' Afflitto (1782) page 302: "AMMlRATO (Scipione) nacque da Jacopo , e da Angela di Ramondo in Lecce ad ore 22. del dl 27. settembre 1531."

(Translation: AMMlRATO (Scipione) was born to Jacopo and Angela di Ramondo in Lecce at 22 hours on 27 September 1531).

With reference to Florentine Time, the sun set on the day prior in the Julian Calendar at about 5:30 PM LMT to which 22 hours is added to make 3:30 PM LMT. Other references give 7 October 1531 which would be the date in the Gregorian Calendar.
