Edmund Prestwich.

Of whom I know no more, than that ’tis said, he has writ a Play, called,

Hippolitus, a Tragedy, 8 vo. 1641. A Play, which Mr. Langbain says, he never saw; the Author’s Name is to it, who took the Plot from that of Seneca, or the Phædra of Euripides.

The Hectors, another Play, has been by some Catalogues attributed to this Author; but I cannot learn for any Reason it should be his, so you find it placed among the Anonymous Plays.
