Thomas Wood (1661-1722) was an Oxford Doctor of Civil Law [DCL] and briefly assessor of the vice-chancellor’s court there. He was also called to the bar at Gray’s Inn. He wrote that ‘the most ancient of [common law] writers, would look very naked, if every Roman Lawyer should pluck away his Feathers'.
