Map licensed March 27, 1668 by Roger Lestrange. Appointed surveyor in 1663, he also published three news sheets: the Intelligencer and the News (both 1663–66) and the Observator (1681–87), as well as numerous pamphlets in support of the government. He was knighted in 1685 after helping to discredit the Popish Plot, a fictitious story alleging that the Jesuits were planning to assassinate King Charles II....Baskerville was the fourth son of the antiquary Hannibal Baskerville. He was born at Bayworth House, Sunningwell, near Abingdon, in 1630, since, according to the "Visitation of Berkshire", his age on 16 March 1664 was thirty-four.
He wrote an account of a journey which he made through several English counties in England in 1677 and 1678; and a part of his manuscript relating to Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, and Gloucestershire is still preserved in the Harleian Collection. This journal, though referred to by several of his contemporaries, mainly consists of short notes of the towns and places visited by the writer, interspersed with epitaphs copied in churchyards, and some doggerel verse.
