Coincidentally, the Royal Society has made Stukeley's memoir of Newton available in facsimile form online today.

It contains the apple story, which we owe to Stukeley.


From memory at least two sources recorded it earlier but Stukeley of course made it famous, thus perhaps the most known science fact.

I was wondering if in the same way it was because of Stukeley that Robin Hood was believed to be high born.
