1543, Oct1607, May
an English courtier and poet. He was employed by Elizabeth on a mission (1584) to the Low Countries, and in 1589 was sent to Denmark. In a commission to inquire into manors unjustly alienated from the crown in the west country he did not altogether please the queen, but nevertheless received a grant of some forfeited lands in Somerset in 1588. He was knighted and made Chancellor of the Order of the Garter in 1596. He had a great reputation as a poet among his contemporaries, but very little of his work has survived.
