Anthony Johnson 

Vicar of St Helen's, 1711-1715

A short but fascinating piece of research about an early 18th Century vicar of St Helen's, involving a university record, some wills and a tussle over books.

Anthony was brother in law to Rev'd Thomas Bate, who was the donor of the Ashby Parish Library, and his successor as Rector of Swarkestone.
