The manuscript is a bound volume consisting of one hundred and forty-two

a biography of Thomas Hall (1610-1665), a Church of England cleric who
embraced Puritan reforms of the church. With the accession of Charles
II (1660-1685) to the throne and the restoration of the monarchy, numerous
reformist clerics, including Hall, were ejected from the church by the
Act of Uniformity in 1662. Hall spent his remaining years in poverty
and died on April 13, 1665. He was buried at Kings Norton, Worcestershire,
located near Birmingham in the West Midlands.
