  • How to
    request
Letters almost entirely written to Anthony Wood, 1657-95, chiefly on the biography of Oxford writers, some with draughts of the replies. In the following list some entries have been for convenience inserted from MSS. Wood F. 46-51, Ashm. Mus. c. 1, the whole series forming the bulk of the papers on which Wood's Atheme Oxonienses is based. They do not however satisfactorily allow of summary treatment.

The chief writers are:
  1. Vaughan, Henry (3), 1673-89 (MS. Wood F. 39, fols. 216, 227: fol. 68).
  2. Walker, Obadiah (1), Apr. 11, 1690 (fol. 77).
  3. Wallis, dr. John (2), 1692 (fol. 210).
  4. Walton, Izaak (1), May 26, 1683 (fol. 81).
  5. Whitby, Daniel (4), 1686-91 (fol. 97).
  6. Wilkinson, Henry (7), 1671-3 (fol. 128).
  7. Williams, bp. Griffith, copy of his will, 1672 (MS. Wood F. 49, fol. 43).
  8. Wood, Anthony (59, by him, chiefly draughts, many to Ralph Sheldon), 1657-92 (fols. 147, 249): at fol. 266 of the same volume is an account of the English draughts of Wood's History of the University, from 1673. Many draughts of letters by Wood are in the volumes of this correspondence.
  9. Wood, Charles (5), 1665-75 (fol. 219).
  10. Woodroffe, B. (1), Dec. 30, 1691 (fol. 236).
