Henry Maundrell (1665–1701), oriental traveller, son of Robert Maundrell of Compton Bassett, near Calne, Wiltshire, was baptised there 23 Dec. 1665. His narrative of the expedition, entitled ‘A Journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem at Easter A.D. 1697,’ was printed at Oxford in 1703, with dedications to Sprat, bishop of Rochester, whom he had probably met at Bromley, and to Hedges.
Numerous impressions came out in later years, and it was issued in 1810 in a volume with Bishop Robert Clayton's ‘Journal from Grand Cairo to Mount Sinai. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Maundrell,_Henry_(DNB00)
