Maxwell, Robert

Maxwell, Robert one of the Scottish lords of the regency during the absence of James V in France, deserves a place here for his action in the first Parliament of Mary queen of Scots (1543), where he introduced a bill to allow the reading of the Scriptures in the vulgar tongue, which was passed in spite of the opposition of the lord chancellor, the bishops, and priests. He died in 1546.
