George Dyer, in History of the University and Colleges of Cambridge (1814) 2:85.



Mr. Francis Fawkes, the translator of Appollonius Rhodius, Theocritus, and Anacreon, was of this college [Jesus College]. The translations may be seen in Dr. Anderson's edition of Translations. He was assisted in his Appollonious Rhodius by Mr. Meen, formerly fellow of Emmanuel College, who brought it through the press, after his death, and himself translated Coluthus. Mr. F. died in 1777.
