Excerpt: ... " Small, who died in 1778." Bcncombe, in the same parish, was another pood house, where, we are informed by this author, the Dorneys had long resided; it some time belonged to Edward Dorney, who had a good estate there. John Dorney succeeded William Guyse, as town clerk of Gloucester, in the mayoralty of Thomas Hill--1640-1. S. A. MS. and continued in that office till the year 166.', when he was removed by the commissioners appointed in the reign of Charles II. for the regulation of corporations; and this was in consequence of the very active part he had taken in the cause of the parliament. But he was re-elected in 1667, and continued town clerk till his death in i674. Fosbrooke, 400. 422. Besides the " Briefe and Exact Relation," he published " Certain Speeches " made upon the day of the yearly election of officers in the city of Gloucester, " &c. London, 165a." These were delivered in the several mayoralties of Dennis Wise, Oct. 2, 1643; Nicholas Webb, 1641; Luke Nourse, Oct-6, 1645; Laurence Singleton, Oct. 5, 1646; Jasper Clutterbooke, Oct. 4, 1647; John Madocks, Oct 2, 1648; Henry Cugley, Oct. 1, 1649; Jacob Stephens, 1650; Anthony Edwards, 1651; ana William Singleton, 1652; and contain many allusions to the war and to the existing state of their affairs. In a table at the end are all the names of the city officers, &c. for these several years. Dorney was evidently a man of education, cites Latin, Greek and Hebrew in his orations; and employs in his arguments the scriptures, the classics, the history and laws of the land. He has also given proofs of a talent for versification by no means contemptible, when balanced against some of his contemporaries. He was probably the writer of most of the poetical effusions during the siege. Tracts, pp. 224. 225....
