Hale, Bernard, Dd
Hale, Bernard, D.D.
master of Peterhouse, in Cambridge University, was born of religious parents, and received his early education in the public school of Hartford. Afterwards he removed to Westminster, thence to Peterhouse, of which he became a fellow. After three or four years spent in his fellowship, his father's death transmitted to him a fair estate, and he resigned his office, and thereafter lived in retirement, chiefly in. Norfolk, occupied with acts of devotion and beneficence. At the Restoration he was moved by a father of the Church to enter the priesthood. Immediately several preferments were offered him, some of which he accepted, but with the understanding that whatever emoluments he reaped therefrom should be dedicated to the service of God. He largely endowed the College of St. Peter. He died about 1663. See The (Lond.) Christian Remembrancer, April 1822, page 208.
