Other NoteThese sermons are very likely by Robert Taylor, who was the rector of East Barnet, Hertfordshire (1681-1719) and the curate of Monken Hadley, Middlesex, ca. 1697. Another volume in this collection (MS. Rawl. E. 86) gives "Taylor" as the preacher's name, and these places and dates fit the preaching data for these sermons. Both Old and New Style dates are used.
