[Maiors and Sheriffs.] The TEMPORAL GOVERNMENT.

Son of Robert Rowe, Citizen and Merchant Taylor of London, who was Son to Reynald Rowe of Lee in Kent.

This Maior built a convenient Room in Paul's Churchyard, on the South side of the Cross, to recieve a certain number of Auditors at the Sermon time; as appeared by some Remembrances of his Name there fixed. He enclosed also this Year with a Brick Wall a piece of Ground near Bethlem, for a Burying-Place to such Parishes in London as wanted Churchyards. And more such like Acts of Charity, for the Benefit of the City, this well-disposed Gentleman was like to have done, had he lived longer; as A.F. hath observed.
