Index prepared by Michael Steer

The misericords in the choir at Exeter are the earliest complete set in the United Kingdom. They date from two periods: 1220 - 1230 and 1250 - 1260. Among other things, they depict the earliest known wooden representation of an elephant in the United Kingdom. The booklet's author, John William Hewett, M.A., was born in 1824, and educated at Trinity College, Cambridge (B.A. 1849, M.A. 1852). He from 1849 to 1852, was a Fellow of St. Nicolas College, Shoreham; and was subsequently Head Master of Bloxham Grammar School (1853-56), and Senior Classical Master in the North London College School (1874-78). He also held curacies in London and the neighbourhood. He edited The Sealed Copy of the Prayer Book, 1848, and other works, and is the author of History and Description of Exeter Cathedral; and another of Ely. His original hymns and translations appeared in his Verses by a Country Curate 1859.
