Sir Henry CRESWICKE d.1668
Master of the Merchant Venturers in Bristol, mayor of Bristol 1660.
Creswicke's probate inventory records ‘books of all sorts’ in the little new parlour, valued at £10. His will has no explicit mention of books, and is largely concerned with distributing money and property around his family; the residue of his estate was left to his son Francis.
None of Creswicke's books have been identified.
