1. John Stowe, the famous chronicler of the kings of England, and surveyor of the city of London, a painstaking and voluminous writer, was the oldest son of Margaret and Thomas. He belonged to the honorable company of merchant tailors, a company which has now the most splendid and best conducted school in the old city of London. He endeavored to make his living as a draper and tailor; but by his enthusiastic devotion to the study of antiquities, he exposed himself to many suspicions and persecutions, was all his days plagued with poverty, and after a long life spent in hard labor, he died in the depths of penury, leaving little behind him expect piles of MSS, to which posterity has paid all desirable honor.
