The author Richard Clerke (or Clarke) was rector of Minster in Thanet and a Six Preacher (1602–1633). The Benefactors' Book records that he gave the Library an 8-volume copy of the Plantin Polyglott Bible.
The editor Charles White is recorded as succeeding him as a Six Preacher in 1633; he was vicar of Bekesbourne at the date of publication.
