John Warburton was an English antiquary who possessed many rare Elizabethan and Jacobean scripts, including the only extant copies of several plays said to have been written by Shakespeare. These manuscripts were lost forever when his illiterate but devoted cook, Betsy Baker, burned some and used the rest to line pie bottoms.
