* Camden, when speaking of the Lord Chief Justice Popham,
says: — "Now it, viz., Wellington, in Somerset, is a market
town, whose chief distinction is the Honourable Sir John
Popham, a person of ancient nobilty, strict justice, and un-
wearied application, for it is not proper that men of distin-
guished virtue, and who have deserved well of their country,
should be forgotten. While Chief Justice of the Queens
Bench, he administered justice with so much impartiality and
wholesome .severity, that England has been long indebted to
him, principally for its domestic tranquillity and security."
Camden published this work in 1607, the year m which the
judge died.
