John Evelyn, FRS (31 October 1620 – 27 February 1706) was an English writer, gardener and diarist.

Evelyn's diaries, or memoirs, are largely contemporaneous with those of the other noted diarist of the time, Samuel Pepys, and cast considerable light on the art, culture and politics of the time (the deaths of Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, the last Great Plague of London, and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Over the years, Evelyn's Diary has been over-shadowed by Pepys's chronicles of 17th-century life.

    Victoria County History....
    The Victoria County History (VCH) is a unique, comprehensive, and authoritative work of English local history, arranged county by county, and based on rigorous original research. General volumes cover subjects such as the political, religious, economic, and educational history of each county as a whole, and topographical volumes contain detailed historical accounts of each town, village, and parish, arranged in a consistent format. To date about 230 volumes have been published; some county sets are complete, while others have only one or two volumes so far published. In 2003 work is progressing on 13 counties, and overall about four volumes are published each year. Many counties make their draft text available online before publication: more information and links to county websites can be found on the VCH's main website.
