ProvenanceThe Tewkesbury Vicars' Papers (40 vols; c. 1680-1770) are the papers of four successive vicars of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. The volumes comprise sermons, commonplace books, miscellaneous religious writings, and essays. This is the fourth volume. The Tewkesbury Vicars Papers descended to the Rev. Charles Lewis Shipley (St Catharine’s, Cambridge, M.A. 1781), who was headmaster of Bromsgrove School in Worcestershire (1788-1799). Irvine Gray states that Shipley was a nephew of Henry Jones junior, vicar of Tewkesbury in 1754-1769, and that Shipley had the manuscripts bound and numbered on the spine with small printed labels (Gray, p. 155).
