Here is an example of a gresley dance that seems to me very similar to an
Inns of court dance:

#10 What so ever ye wyll, de duobus

doble trace   ( here substitute Alman doubles)
After the end of the trace: trett and retrett togedere and thre forth with
a step. ( single forward, single back and double forward)
Then trett and retrett togeder and both torne at onys. ( single forward,
single back and turn)
Then both forth togeder with 6 singlis; and then change handes. (two
doubles forward and switch sides (as in Black Almain))
Then forth with oder sex singlis and change handes. ( another two doubles
forward and switch sides again)
Then trett and retrett at onys. ( single forwards, single back)
Then rake both at onys. (then ?????)

This is not exactly any Inns of court Allman that I know of but it seems to
fit the pattern. Not that it doesn't fit a 15th balli pattern, but the
single forward and back feels more like the Allmans to me.
