Thomas Wilcox
By Thomas Crosby

      Mr. Thomas Wilcox, elder of a ſmall congregation, which met before the ſickneſs, at his houſe in Cannon-ſtreet, afterwards, at the Three-cranes, in the Borough of Southwark. He was two or three times put into Newgate for Nonconformity, and ſuffered very much. He writ a ſmall piece, which was printed before the Fire of London, intitled, A drop of honey from the rock Chriſt. A peice [sic] that was very well eſteemed, and has done much good, and been oft reprinted. He was born in the month of Auguſt 1622, at Linden, in the county of Rutland, and died May 17th, 1687, in the 64th year of his age. He was a moderate man, and of catholick principles, well beloved by all denominations, and frequently preached among the Preſbyterians and Independents. He left a widow and three children.
