Other NoteThese sermons very likely are by Robert Taylor, who was the rector of East Barnet, Hertfordshire (1681-1719) and the curate of Monken Hadley, Middlesex, ca. 1697. This volume gives "Taylor" as the preacher's name, and these places and dates fit the preaching data for the sermons in the entire series.
