Notes Portrait of Sir Ranulphe Crewe from the 1680 edition of Dugdale's Origines.

Sir Ranulph (or Randolph or Ranulphe) Crewe (or Crew) (1558 - 1646) was an English judge and Chief Justice of the King's Bench.

Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) left his native Prague in 1627. He spent several years travelling and working in Germany before his patron, the Earl of Arundel brought him to London in 1636. During the civil wars, Hollar fought on the Royalist side, after which he spent the years 1644-52 in Antwerp. Hollar's views of London form an important record of the city before the Great Fire of 1666. He was prolific and engraved a wide range of subjects, producing nearly 2,800 prints, numerous watercolours and many drawings.
