16001643
an English clergyman and reputed antinomian. In the end he proved a divisive figure for English Calvinists, with a serious controversy arising from the republication of his works in the 1690s. In 1627 he was presented to the rectory of Newington Butts, from which he was removed a few months later on account of having been a party to a simoniacal contract. Later in the same year he was presented to the rectory of Brinkworth in Wiltshire, where he became popular as preacher and host. When he obtained the degree of D.D. is not known, but it was before 1642, when he was compelled to leave his rectory because of persecution by royalist soldiers.
