Oughton "was a learned man, who spared no pains to produce a book which was scientific, accurate, and historically correct. He consulted public and private muniment rooms, the records of the courts, the Cottonian MSS., and the MSS. in the Harleian library. The result of these labors was a book in two volumes, the first of which describes the practice of the ecclesiastical courts, and the second contains a collection of formularies. After the book had been finished and sent to the printers, the printing office and the MS. was destroyed by fire. But Oughton, being, as he said, 'ardens et tenax,' rewrote it. His diligence and perseverance were rewarded; for it became the accepted authority on the practice of the ecclesiastical courts." Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:616.
