Samuel Clarke is best known as a writer of lives. He was an Anglican clergyman and was relatively well-connected, though never achieved great stature in the church. This work is a history of martyrdom in the English church with some lives of divines appended. He sometimes used the acronym of his name Su[c]k all Cream.
