, uncle to the preceding, was born
at York in 1606, and studied at Sidney college, Cambridge.
After being chaplain for some time to sir T. Burdet, in
Derbyshire, he held the vicarage of Trinity in the king’s
court, York. He also preached at Christ Church, and was
one of the four preachers who officiated at the cathedral
during the time of Oliver Cromwell. On passing the act
of uniformity he was ejected from Allhallows parish in that
city, and lived privately. His studies appear to have been
much directed to the scriptures in the original languages,
and to the Jewish rabbins. He was much disturbed in mind
and injured in his property by an extravagant son, but was
greatly comforted in the excellent character of his nephew,
the subject of the preceding article. He died March 1679.
His works are, 1. “
Mel Cceli, an exposition of Isaiah,
The blessed Jew of Morocco
a demonstration of the true Messias, &c. by Rabbi Samuel,
a converted Jew, &c.”
Comcedia Apocalyptica;” Gerard’s “
Schola Consolatoria,” with additions, and wrote some poetical
pieces, elegies, and a practical work entitled “
Heartsalve for a wounded Soul, &c.”
