Excerpt from The Cabinet of Biography, Vol. 3: Eminent British Statesmen

John Pym, the son of Somersetshire 'esquire,' was born at Brymore, in his father's county, in the year 1584. His family, though described by Clarendon as of a 'private quality and condition of life,' were rich and of very old descent: his mother was afterwards Lady Rous: and this boy, the only issue of her first marriage, was sent, in the beginning of the year 1599 to Broadgates Hall, now Pembroke College, Oxford, where he entered as a gentleman commoner. Here he made himself remarkable not only by quick natural talents, but by a sleepless and unwearied pursuit of every study he took in hand.
