Hornby, John, Dd
Hornby, John, D.D.
a native of Lincolnshire, bred a Carmelite, received his degree at Cambridge, flourished in 1374, and was buried at his convent in Boston. He participated in a great controversy over the priority of the Dominican and Carmelite orders, John Stock pleading for the precedency of the former, and Hornby preaching and writing for that of the latter. The judges were John Donwick, the chancellor, and the doctors of the university, and they confirmed the opinion of Hornby, under the seal of the university. Henry VIII made them friends by thrusting both out of the land. See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 2:288.
