hearsay Rev Jonathan Tinclar founded a trust with a gift of 50, in 1750, to provide the vicars of the parish with a library of books on theology, law, and science. Part of the money was used to purchase a field whose rent supported the library, and part to buy books. Other books, from 1710 onwards, came from Edmund Gibson, Bishop of London and from Lord Lonsdale.
Jonathan Tinclar, rector of Addlethorpe, Lincolnshire, came from a Westmorland family and was probably educated at Bampton Grammar School.
