[WHARTON, Henry; STANHOPE, George]
Henry Wharton was an English writer and librarian who is best known for his "Anglia sacra," a collection of the lives of English archbishops and bishops, published the year before this work was completed. George Stanhope was a clergyman of the Church of England, rising to be Dean of Canterbury and a Royal Chaplain. He was also amongst the commissioners responsible for the building of 50 new churches in London, and a leading figure in church politics into the early 18th century.
