Cardmaker, John, an English martyr, was prebendary of the church of Wells. He was apprehended in queen Mary's time, and put in prison in the Fleet, king Edward's laws being yet in force. He was examined and persuaded to recant, but again returned to his faith, and was a constant confessor and worthy martyr of Christ. He answered many of the articles brought against him by letter, most learnedly and substantially. He was burned, with some others, May 30,1555. See Fox, Acts and Monuments, vii, 77.
