Rymer, Thomas (16391714)

Rymer, Thomas, the learned editor of the “Foedera,” an invaluable collection of historical documents dealing with England's relations with foreign powers, born at Northallerton; was a Cambridge man and a barrister; turned to literature and wrote much both in prose and poetry, but to no great purpose; was Historiographer-royal; Macaulay in characteristic fashion calls him “the worst critic that ever lived”; but his “Foedera” is an enduring monument to his unwearied industry (16391714).
