Stephen BARWYCK or BARWICK d.1547

Biographical Note

Probably originally from Kendal, Westmorland. At the time of his death he was described as butler of Christ's College, Cambridge, where he was probably studying for a degree while working to support himself.


Barwyck's probate inventory includes 34 titles, in 39 volumes, valued at 13s 8d (from a total estate valued at £9 2s). The books are largely in Latin, with at least one in Greek, and cover the range of subjects appropriate for undergraduate study. The full inventory is edited as Leedham-Green no.34 (see full citation below).
