PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.
HAMON L'ESTRANGE was the second son of Sir Hamon L'Estrange, knight, the descendant of an ancient and reputable family, seated at Hunstanton Hall, co. Norfolk. Nicholas, the eldest, was created a baronet in 1629, and died in 1656. Roger, the youngest, who became so well known by his numerous writings, was knighted by King James II. in 1684, as a reward for his loyal services, and died in 1705, at the advanced age of 884 Hamon L'Estrange, the author of the Alliance, was twice married, and left a numerous issue. In the year 1655 he published a History of the Reign of King Charles I., which called forth the Observations of Dr. Peter Heylin. L'Estrange (according to Heylin) attacked these Observations with great asperity, in a pamphlet, entituled The Observator Observed;' and in 1656, we are told that Dr. Heylin, “with admired wit and elegance, gave Mr. L'Estrange a most severe yet civil correction," in his * Extraneus Vapulans b;' to which L'Estrange alludes in his preface to the Alliance.
The first edition of the Alliance of Divine Offices was published in 1659, previous to the last review of the Common Prayer Book. The second edition, from which the present is reprinted, appeared in 1690. The third, bearing date 1699, differs from the two previous editions, in the addition
