This article includes verbatim transcription from the DNB that are not marked by quotation marks or credited to the author. The edition of the DNB in question is in the public domain, which indeed gives one permission to quote freely from it. But even so the material must be appropriately attributed.
This is a serious issue and must be corrected—ideally by the original author, who has provided a needed article on an important figure in the history of English. KC 19:40, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
