Dangerfield, William

Dangerfield, William an English martyr, was a citizen of Wootton-under-Edge, not far from Bristol. He was suspected by some of his adversaries, and put into prison, where he remained until his legs were almost fretted off with irons. After much suffering he recanted, against the advice of his wife, who was a prisoner at the same time; he had no sooner quitted the jail, than, his conscience upbraiding him, he began to pray for forgiveness, for which he was soon put to the stake and burned, in 1556. See Fox, Acts and Monunients, 8:251.
