John Stow (c1525-1605), chronicler and antiquary, devoted his life “to the search for our faour [fair] antiquaries”. He transcribed manuscripts and inscriptions relating to English history, archaeology and literature. His final work, A Survey of London and Westminster (1598), was re-published by John Strype (1643-1737), the ecclesiastical historian and biographer, in 1720.
