Well, he does touch on it briefly under the Hammersmith and Horton,
1631­1638 entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (or were you
referring to my post about his new Milton Bio)?

His new bio book "John Milton: Life, Work, and Thought" just came out last
month and he had promised in "John Milton (Very Interesting People)" that
this new Bio would contain new discoveries in Milton's life that had
recently come to light.
