Regius professor of divinity at Cambridge, 1557, rector of Stanhope, Durham, and vicar of Gainford, Durham, both in 1558; d. in a Yorkshire prison, 1573. He was deprived of the three preferments noted above soon after Elizabeth's accession, and was restricted to within ten miles of Richmond, Yorkshire, from 1562 to 1570, when he seems to have been sent to prison at York. An unfriendly hand in 1562 describes him as "learned but not very wise". He argued against Bucer in 1550, and against Cranmer, Latimer, and Ridley in April 1554, when he was incorporated D.D. at Oxford. He had been rector of Edwarton, Suffold, 1552. Lady Margaret professor of divinity, 1554, vicar of Enfield Middlesex, 1555, and rector of Toft, Cambridgeshire, 1556, but had given up these four preferments before Queen Mary died.
