Manuscripts collected the Rev. Henry Jones, 17th century.

Biographical / Historical

The Rev. Henry Jones matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, in 1668, and was Rector of Sunningwell in Berkshire until 1700, when he resigned his position, being a Nonjuror, but he qualified again for the position of Rector in 1706. He died in c. October 1707. He was a nephew of Bishop John Fell (d 1686), and to him as co-heir came many of the bishop's manuscripts.

Other Finding Aids

II in 2 parts], Oxford, 1895-1953; reprinted, with corrections in vols. I and VII, Munich, 1980), vol. V, nos. 27593-27595, 27764-27765.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The Rev. Henry Jones gave, while rector of Sunningwell--a position he resigned in 1700--the three next following MSS.: the fourth certainly once belonged to him. The last manuscript was certainly in the Library in 1747 but the actual date of presentation is not known.
