1605, Sep 121686, Feb 10
an English antiquary and herald. As a scholar he was influential in the development of medieval history as an academic subject. During his leisure at Oxford he collected material at the Bodleian Library and college libraries for his books. Following the surrender of Oxford in 1646 Dugdale returned to Blyth Hall and compounded for his estates under the terms of the Oxford articles. Hatton, who had opposed the surrender, went into exile in France, where Dugdale visited him in 1648. He recommenced his antiquarian researches, collaborating with Roger Dodsworth on the Monasticon Anglicanum, the first volume of which was published in 1655. In the following year he published his own Antiquities of Warwickshire, which was soon recognised as a model county history.
