(or as he latterly called himself, Anthony à Wood) (1632–95), historian and antiquary. He prepared a treatise on the history of the University of Oxford, which was translated into Latin and edited (with alterations) by Fell and published as Historia et Antiquitates Univ. Oxon. (1674). Wood published Athenae Oxonienses (1691–2), a biographical dictionary of Oxford writers and bishops, containing severe judgements on some of these, and was expelled from the University in 1693 at the instance of Henry Hyde, for a libel which the work contained on his father, the first earl of Clarendon.
