15401619, Feb 26
an Anglican churchman of Calvinist views. Edmund was sent to Oxford University at the age of sixteen, and after graduating B.A. was elected probationer fellow of Magdalen College. His father meant him for the law, and sent him to Staple Inn and Gray's Inn. He decided to enter the church, and was disinherited in favour of Richard, the second son, for so doing. In 1564 he received the prebend of Oxgate in St Paul's Cathedral, in succession to John Braban. Returning to Oxford he graduated M.A. in 1565, and was soon after elected fellow of Merton College; this was an unprecedented move, but the reason was that Merton had no one who could preach, while Bunny was a fluent extemporiser.
