Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
From Warrington's Edition: "Thomas Jacomb of Burton Lazars, Leicestershire, entered at Magdalen Hall, Oxford in 1640; but, removing to Cambridge on the breaking out of the rebellion, he obtained a fellowship at Trinity College, in the place of a loyalist ejected, and had the degree of M.A. conferred on him. He afterwards became rector of St. Martin's Ludgate, in London; and was put out for non-confomity in 1662, being then D.D. He subsequently followed the trade conventicling, which brought him into trouble; and he died 27th March 1687, in the house of the Countess of Exeter, to whom he was domestic chaplain (abridged from Kennett's Register)"P.S. 'conventicle' is a secret gathering of religious dissenters.'D.D.' is Doctor of Divinity
