Biographical / Historical

Sir John Parker, eldest son of the archbishop (d. 1618)

Other Finding Aids

Falconer Madan, et al., A summary catalogue of western manuscripts in the Bodleian Library at Oxford which have not hitherto been catalogued in the Quarto series (7 vols. in 8 [vol. II in 2 parts], Oxford, 1895-1953; reprinted, with corrections in vols. I and VII, Munich, 1980), vol. V, no. 27647.

Custodial History

'Excunte Anno Dom. Hoc MS. mini dedit Iohannes Battely, Archidiaconus Cantwarensis . Geo. Hickes.' Dr. Hickes died in 1715, and left his MSS. to Hilkiah Bedford, who died in 1724, and Hilkiah's son William died in 1747. The volume might therefore pass to Dr. Richard Rawlinson who bought many of Bedford's MSS., and he might include it in his numerous donations in about A.D. 1750. It was undoubtedly referenced in about that year.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Possibly acquired c.1750.
