The Family of Atterbury hath flourished 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-Malfor, 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, * becaine 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-Risington, 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.
