Robert Southey, 1800 ca.; Common-Place Book (1849-51) 4:351.



Dr. Chetwood was chaplain to James II. who nominated him Bishop of Bristol, but abdicated the kingdom before his election passed the seals. He was made Dean of Gloucester, and went abroad with Marlborough as chaplain to the English forces. The Dissertation prefixed to Dryden's Virgil in 1697, is his.
