John Aubrey

Author Code: EJAU

Born: Mar. 12, 1626 - Easton Pierse, Wiltshire, England

Died: Jun. 7, 1697 - Oxford, England

Educated through tuition and then at Trinity College, Oxford, Aubrey then began studying for the bar at Middle Temple in 1646. When his father died, he inherited a number of estates which required his attention and he was obliged to give up his studies. Nevertheless, he had become an avid antiquarian and bibliophile and is said to have discovered the ruins at Avebury while hunting with some friends in 1648. In 1662, he became one of the original Fellows of the Royal Society. He undertook a massive work on the study of British antiquities, Momenta Britannica, however, it was never published and still remains in manuscript form. The work for which Aubrey is probably best known is his Lives of Eminent Men, also known as Brief Lives, which was not published until 1823, long after his death. Primarily apolitical, Aubrey straddled the boundaries of Royalism and Republicanism, having friends on both sides. His other works include Remaines of Gentilisme and Judaisme (1687), Miscellanies Upon Various Subjects (1696) and The Natural History of Wiltshire (1847 Posthumous).
