James Ingram (1774-1850) was an Oxford academic who taught Anglo-Saxon from 1803 to 1808 and served as President of Trinity College from 1824 until his death. He found time between 1833 and 1837 to research this work on Oxford's monuments. One of his contributing artists, William Delmotte, was born in England of a French refugee family and rose to become one of the leading landscape painters of his time.
