This gentleman, a minor canon of Canterbury Cathedral, rector of Alhallows, in Lombard Street, London, and of Coulsdon, in Surrey, is librarian to the Earl of Bridgewater, and to the archepiscopal library at Lambeth. He has published an interesting Account of the Deans of Canterbury; from the new Foundation of that Church by Henry VIII. to the present Time: 8vo. 1794. The public is also indebted to him for excellent editions, with notes, of the works of Spenser and Milton; but his niche in this work he derives from an edition, with notes and other illustrations, of Comus. M. 8vo. 1798.
