This is the famous chapter 9 of An Abridgment of Mr Baxter’s History of his Life and Times (1702). This chapter became a whole volume of a second edition of the Abridgement published in 1713. And in 1727 Calamy produced a further two volumes of material under the title A Continuation of the Account of the Ministers, Lecturers, Masters and Fellows of Colleges, and Schoolmasters who were Ejected and Silenced after the Restoration of 1660.Samuel Palmer attempted to integrate this material into a more readable form, making extensive revisions and additions.
