I just came across some notes I have on some manuscripts said to be written by Edward Kelley that have found their way into the King's Library in Copenhagen. They are, however,  in some cases dated after the year of Kelley's death.

MS. 245.
1. ff. 1-6 De Vitriolo  [Recipes].
2 ff. 8-14 De Antimonio vel Stibio [Anonymus].
3. ff.14-15v A Discourse of Antymony, wrytten by Mr John Tychborn of London (Anno Domine 1560) After a duch Booke pertayning to Mr Albert of Brydewell.

There's an article on these by B├Ącklund:

"In the Footsteps of Edward Kelley: Some Manuscript References in the Royal Library in Copenhagen Concerning an Alchemical Circle Around John Dee and Edward Kelley" in John Dee: Interdisciplinary Studies in English Renaissance Thought, ed. S. Clucas, Springer Dordrecht, the Netherlands, Dordrecht, the Netherlands, 2006.

Baecklund misses the fact that these manuscripts were from the collection of Isaac Habrecht (J. Habrecht), a Paracelsian physician from Strassburg who later participated in the Rosicrucian debate under a variety of pseudonyms. Apparently, as young man he studied in England.
