Help me to check the information against a source about Fuller

"He had catched a great cold,had he had no other clothes to wear than the skin of a bear not yet killed."- Fuller- This is from "Middlemarch" written by G.Eliot. I'd like to know the source of Thomas Fuller. I can't find any information about it whereas I read a lot of his another quotations on the internet. I wonder if he really said so...

It's in the book The History of the Worthies of England (specific page). Fuller is writing about about Cornwall, the place, and referring to the Duke of Medina-Sidonia and his covetousness of Sir Richard Edgecomb's house there which was called Mount Edgecomb. The Duke would have tried to claim the house for Spain but he took sick. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but that is where it's from.
