Anthony Wood

Mr. Anthony Wood, M. A., antiquarius, in his lettre to me, Palm Sunday March 23, 1672, writes thus, viz. 'My nativity I cannot yet retrive ; but by talking with an ancient servant of my father's find I was borne on the 17 of December, but the year when, I am not certain : 'twas possibly about 1647. John Selden was borne the 16 of December and Sir Symonds Dews the 17. But of these matters I shall tell you more when my trouble is over.'

died in 1695.
