a learned divine of the Anglican Church, was born in Middlesex in 1604. In 1620 he became a student at Christ Church, Oxford, and chaplain, in 1637, to archbishop Laud. Two years after he was made a canon of Windsor, and, eventually, rector of Oddington. He suffered much during the Rebellion, and was compelled to leave his country. At the Restoration he was admitted again to his preferments, and died at Windsor in 1673, leaving many works. See Walker, Sufferings of the Clergy, page 93; Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.
