'The history of the ... cittie of Verulamium ... the martyrdom of St Alban...', Written in about 1640 by J. Shrimpton
'The history of the ... cittie of Verulamium ... the martyrdom of St Alban, the first buylding of the towne & monasterye bearinge his name, with many ancient funerall monuments ... writt in verse & prose': the preface is signed 'John Shrimpton.'
This is a rambling account of Verulam and St. Alban's of no critical value, partly in verse: imperfect at end.
