Causton, Thomas an English martyr, was a native of the county of Essex, and a zealous Christian. He would not attend mass, and was, therefore, taken prisoner and sent to London. His examination began Feb. 17, 1555; he was commanded to recant his errors and come to the unity of the Popish Church, which he refused to do. The examination continued until March 4, 1555, when Causston made a public confession of his faith. After he had finished this, the bishop hurried him off to Newgate, where he remained fourteen days in prison, and was then taken to Raleigh, in Essex, and burned, March 26,1555. See Fox, Acts and Monuments. 6, 729.
