MARLEBOROVGH 66 I K H

This man was a bookseller, and suffered very heavy losses in the Great Fire of 1653. He says: "I have but little left saved, not above £8 worth of all my goods and books. The children are crying to go home, and I tell them we have none to go to. What shall I do?"

In 1642 the Royalists took Marlborough, and fed a fire for three hours with Hammond's stock-in-trade.--Vide "Waylen's History."

The following issuers, marked N. B.," also lost heavily in the fire:

John Bayly, grocer, heavily; Thomas Keene, £270; William Pureur, £230; Richard Shipre, £560; Oliver Shropshire, innkeeper, £204--all evidently men of substance.--Vide "Walen's History."
