Bromley, John an English clergyman of the 17th century, was a native of Shropshire. Early in the reign of James II he was curate of St. Giluess-in-the-Fields, London, but afterwards turned Roman Catholic, and was employed as a proof- reader in the king's printing-house. When obliged by the Revolution to quit this employment, he turned school-master, and afterwards travelled abroad as tutor to some young gentlemen. He died January 10, 1717. His only published work is a translation of the Catechism of the Council of Trent (Lond. 1687). See Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.
