Wilkinson, vicar of Lawrance Waltham, Berkes." At fol. 32 allusion is also made to information respecting this family derived from the writer's father; while fol. 83 in the same volume is formed by the cover of a letter addressed, "For my honoured friend Mr. Thomas Wilkinson, att Laurence Walltham."
