a Church of England clergyman, a convert from Catholicism, known as a polemical writer. From a Catholic family, and destined for the priesthood, he was sent during the pontificate of Pope Clement VIII to the English College, Rome. He returned to England, via Spain, and about 1610 he was imprisoned as a Jesuit. He then professed himself a Protestant, and was released. He was immediately employed by King James, together with William Warmington, another convert, to write a book against Conrad Vorstius. Subsequently he published several works against Catholicism on his own account.
