Clergy
borndied
1637, Jul1711, Mar 19
an English cleric who was considered the most eminent of the English non-juring bishops, and one of the fathers of modern English hymnody. In 1679, Ken was appointed by Charles II chaplain to the Princess Mary, wife of William of Orange. While with the court at the Hague, he incurred the displeasure of William by insisting that a promise of marriage, made to an English lady of high birth by a relative of the prince, should be kept; and he therefore gladly returned to England in 1680, when he was immediately appointed one of the king's chaplains.
