Charles Eyston

Charles Eyston (22 September 1667 – 5 November 1721) was an English antiquary.

As a scholar he became a friend of Thomas Hearne, who wrote of him: "He was a Roman Catholick and so charitable to the poor that he is lamented by all who knew anything of him . ... He was a man of a sweet temper and was an excellent scholar and so modest that he did not care to have it at any time mentioned." (''Reliq. Hearnianae''). Provided by Wikipedia
