Custodial History

These volumes seem to have passed at the transcriber's death in 1763 to his daughter Jane Mary, who bequeathed them at her death in 1793 to the Rev. J. Tickell, son of the poet.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The manuscripts came to the Library by the bequest of the rev. J. Tickell at the death of his widow, and were 'plac'd in the Bodl. Library Dec. 5, 1816.'
