Bristow (or Bristolius), Richard
Bristow (Or Bristolius), Richard an Englishman in Roman orders, was born at Worcester in 1533. He was educated at Exeter College, Oxford, lived first at Louvain, and then at the English College at Douay at a time when it was not safe for one of his sect to remain in England. He was the first of that college to be made a priest, being the right hand of cardinal Allen, who, departing to Rheims, left Bristow prefect of Douay College. He was afterwards sent for to Rheims, where he wrote his book, Contra Futilems Fulcrum. He returned to his native land for his health, and died in London in 1582: He also collected, and for the most part wrote, Annotations on the English Translation of the New Testament, at Rheims, and some minor works.
