Scope and content
A list with biographical notes of the Fellows of the Elizabethan and revived Societies of Antiquaries, 16th century-1796, with additional notes to the early 19th century, compiled by the Rev. Mark Noble, FSA (1754-1827); after 1781-before 1827. Noble was apparently revising an earlier list. The first item is a revised entry for Sir William Dethick, Garter (d. 1612). The list was part of the preliminary materials for Noble's MS Lives of the Fellows of the Society of Antiquaries (1818), 2 vols. (now in the Getty Museum; copy in SAL), which cover only 1717-66.
Creator
Noble, Mark (1754-1827), biographer, genealogist and antiquary
Ellis, Sir Henry (1777-1869) Knight, Principal Librarian of the British Museum and antiquary
