Bois, John, Dd
Bois, John, D.D., an English prelate, was descended from an ancient family in Kent. He was educated fellow of Clare Hall, Cambridge; was preferred dean of Canterbury; became famous for his postils in defence of the Anglican liturgy, and died about 1625. His life was pious, though "a great prelate in the Church did bear him no great good-will for mutual animosities between them, while gremiais in the university; the reason perchance he got no higher preferment." See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 2, 155.
