HILST I comply with the Request of the Bookseller; in saying something

of the late Rev. Dr. Lewis Atterbury, whose SERMONS are here presented to the World: I must request the Reader not to expect a compleat Life of him, but only a short Relation of such Particulars, as a personal Conversation with him for several Years, and the Papers I have by me, have furnished me with.

[blocks in formation]

The Family of Atterbury hath Aourished for many Years in Northamptonshire : The Grandfather of our Author was one of the many Children of Lewis Atterbury, of Great-Houghton, in the said County. This Person, whose Name was Francis, was a Reverend Clergyman, Rector of Middleton-Malsor, in his native County ; he was an eloquent, judicious, and useful Preacher, as appears by what I have seen of his Writings, and left behind him the Character of a worthy and good Man,

His Son, Lewis Atterbury, was educated at Christ's Church, in Oxford, * became A. B. 23 Feb. 1649, and was i March 1651, + admitted or created A. M. by Virtue of a Dispensation from the Chancellor of that University. He was admitted in the Year 1654, Rector of Great or Broad-Rifington, in the Diocese and County of Gloucester, and, after the Restoration, took a Presentation for that Benefice under the Great Seal, and, was instituted again to confirm his Title to it I.
