De Usu et Authoritate Juris Civilis Romanorum, London, 1653 (assisted by Gerard Langbaine the Elder). It was translated in part by John Beaver in 1724 as On the Use and Authority of the Civil Law in the Kingdom of England and bound in the same volume with the translation of Claude Joseph de Ferrière's History of the Roman Law, London. It gives detailed information on the reception of Roman law in different European countries. The De Usu took a line on the "ancient constitution" that was rather hostile to royal authority. It raised the general historical question of how law had evolved differently in different states. He was married at Wells Cathedral by Bishop Lake to Margaret Southworth, daughter of Henry Southworth, merchant, of London and Wells, by whom he left two daughters and co-heiresses, "vastly rich", according to the biographer John Prince." - see Wikipedia .
