Book Description

9 July 2012
Jiistory of Robert Fabyan but few notices have reached us. There was nothing remarkable in his descent, and he made but little figure in public life. He was, however, an alderman of London, and presents us with the rare instance of a citizen and merchant, in the fifteenth century, devoting himself to the pleasures of Learning.

A nother Will occurs, also, of aT homas Fabyan early in the sixteenth century.
