1593, Sep 261659, Feb 4
an English essayist, known for his Advice to a Son, which became a very popular book soon after the English Restoration. In politics and religion he sympathised with the popular party in parliament; but, although a close observer of public life, took no active part in it. After residing for a time at North Fambridge, Essex, he removed about 1650 to Oxford, to superintend the education of his son, John, and there printed a series of historical, political, and ethical tracts.
