Sir Thomas REMINGTON ca.1612-1681

Biographical Note

Of Lockington and Lund, Yorkshire.


Remington bequeathed a library of ca.1900 volumes to create a parish library for Lund; no books survive today, but the contemporary catalogue, probably in Remington's hand, was described and offered for sale by Quaritch in 2015. The books probably included ones inherited by Remington from previous generations of his family. It is now in Cambridge University Library (MS Add 10139) and a scanned copy of the whole manuscript is available on the Cambridge Digital Library.
