English Orientalist; born at Padstow, Cornwall, May 3, 1648; died at Norwich Nov. 1, 1724; educated at Christchurch, Oxford, where he became Hebrew lecturer in 1679. He wrote a life of Mohammed (London, 1697), which was mainly a polemical tract against the Deists, and "the Old and New Testament Connected and a History of the Jews and Neighboring Nations in the Time of Christ" (London, 1718, 2 vols.), which for a long time was the standard history of the Jews between the canons; it was frequently reprinted, and was translated into French (1722), and into German (1726).
