their Session held at Sempringham in
the county of Lincoln, Sept. 1566. MS.
in State Paper Office,

3. Numerous Letters, Several have
been printed.

The earl of Lincoln, when lord Clinton,
founded and endowed the free grammar-
school at Horncastle under the authority ,
of the queen's letters -patent dated 25



June 1571. He was a notable breeder
of cattle, and it is said that he had in
his occupation at one time as many as
11,000 acres of grass land in Lincoln-
shire.

Some modem writers, although it is
but too evident that they are imperfectly
acquainted with the earl of Lincoln's
history, have ventured to speak slight-
ingly of his merits and services. We
unhesitatingly adopt the more suitable
language of honest Thomas Puller, who
describes this nobleman as wise, valiant,
and fortunate.

His portrait by Holbein has been
engraved by P. Bartolozzi. Another
portrait of him by Cornelius Ketel has
been engraved by E. Cooper. Thane has
also engraved his portrait, and there are
engravings of his monument at Windsor.

EDMUND PLOWDEN was born at
Plowden in Salop in 1518, being the
eldest son of Humphrey Plowden, esq. of
that place, and his wife Elizabeth daugh-
ter of John Sturry, esq. and rehct of
William Wollascot, esq. After being
educated in this university for three
years he left without a degree, and in
1538 entered the Middle-temple, where
he applied himself with great success to
the study of the common law, and was
called to the bar. It appears from his
Reports that he resorted to the courts at
Westminster and took notes of the cases
there argued and decided ia 1550. In-
deed he tells us that before this period
he constantly attended at moots and
lectures and at all places in court and
chancery to which he might have access
where matters of law were argued and
debated, and that finding that he reaped
much profit and instruction by this
practice he resolved to report the argu-
ments and judgments in the king's courts
upon demurrers in law as abounding more
copiously with matters of improvement,
and being more capable of perfecting the
judgment than arguments upon other
occasions. It has been said that sub-
sequently to his studying at Cambridge
and the Temple he spent four years
at Oxford, and that in November 1552
he was admitted by that university to
practise chirurgery and physic. Most
certain it is that he was one of the
council of the marches of Wales in the
first year of the reign of queen Mary.
In the parliament which began 5 Oct.
1553 he sat for Wallingford in Berk-
shire. In July 1554 we find him acting
as one of the justices of gaol delivery
for the county of Salop at the session
held at Shrewsbury, at which were de-
cided (as in the next adjoining englisb
county) several important crown cases
from divers counties of Wales. In the
parliament which began 12 Nov. 1554 he
appears to have been returned both for
Eeading in Berkshire and for Wotton-
Basset in Wiltshire. Prom 12th Jan.
1554-5 he, with other members to the
number of thirty-nine who were dis-
satisfied with the proceedings of parlia-
ment, withdrew from the house of com-
mons. Informations for contempt were



filed against them by the attorney-gene-
ral. Six submitted; bat Mr. Plowden
took a traverse full of pregnancy. The
matter was never decided. To the par-
liament which met 21 Oct. 1555 he was
returned for Wotton-Basaet. He was
autumn reader of the Middle-temple
1557. He was also reader at New-inn,
but we are not informed of the date
when he held that position. His father
dying 21 March 1557-8 he succeeded to
the estate at Plowden. On 27 Oct.
1558 a writ was directed to him calling
upon him to take upon himself the
state and degree of serjeant-at-law in
Easter term following. Before the re-
tm-n of this writ queen Mary died, where-
by the same abated. It was not renewed
by queen Elizabeth, and consequently
this great lawyer nevgr was actually
a Serjeant, though he is not unfrequently
so entitled. He was double Lent reader
of the Middle-temple 1560-1. On 20
June 1561 he was appointed treasurer
of his inn. During the time he held
that office the erection of the noble hall
of the Middle-temple was commenced.
In Michaelmas term 1562 he was one
of the counsel of the court of the duchy
of Lancaster. It does not appear when
he first had that appointment. His
reputation as a lawyer was now very
great. He steadily adhered to the ro-
man catholic religion, and appears to
have been not unfrequently employed in
opposition to the established authorities.
One memorable instance of his being
so engaged was the defence of Bonner
against the attempt of bishop Home, of
which mention has been made in our
notice of that prelate. His bold advocacy
of Bonner's case was completely suc-
cessful. On 16 Oct. 1566 Mr. Plowden
appeared at the bar of the hoxise of com-
mons as counsel for Gabriel Goodman
dean of Westminster in opposition to
a bill for abolishing sanctuaries for debt.
In this instance too his exertions on
behalf of his client proved effectual, it
being recorded that on the 4th December
the bill was dashed by seventy-five
against sixty. We find that on 20 Dec.
1569 he gave a bond to be of good be-
haviour for a year, and to appear before
the privy-council when summoned. In
this bond he is described as of Shiplake,
and it appears from a letter which the
sherifi' and justices of the peace for Berk-

stire addressed to the council tliat he
had heen called upon to give this hond
in consequence of his refusal to subscribe
to the queen's supremacy. On 7 June
1580 sir Thomas Bromley lord-chancellor
made an order in a cause of Fanshawe
V. Hastings, wherein he has recorded
the good opinion which he had of the
great discretion, circumspection and
honesty of Mr. Plowden, who was counsel
to the late countess of Huntingdon and
drew the conveyance set up by the de-
fendant, and also penned and examined
the conveyance made by the countess to
the plaintiff. On the 2nd December
following articles concerning matters of
religion were exhibited against him. He
died 6 Feb. 1584-5 and was buried in
the Temple church, where there is a
monument to his memory, having thereon
his figure in a lawyer's robe and the
following inscription :

Conditw in hoc Tumulo corpus JBdmundi

He married Catharine, daughter of
William Sheldon, esq. of Beoly Worces-
tershire, by whom he had issue Edmund
who died in 1586; Francis, who lived
tiU 11 Dec. 1652; Mary, who became
the wife of Richard White, esq. by whom
she had issue Thomas White, principal
of the english college at Lisbon, a well-
known catholic writer.

He left, in addition to his paternal in-
heritance, estates at Burghfield, Shiplake
and other places in Berkshire and in Ox-
fordshire. These latter estates seem to
have been all acquired by his professional
gains. By letters-patent dated 10 Dec.
1585, queen Elizabeth, in consideration
of a small fine, demised to Andrew Blun-
den, gent., Edmund Plowden the younger,
and Francis Plowden, sons of Edmund
Plowden deceased, the capital messuage
farm or mansion of Shiplake in the
counties of Oxford and Berks to hold to
them and their assigns for their lives
successively. It is to be presumed that
this grant was a recognition by her ma-



jesty of the merits of the greatest and
most honest lawyer of his age.

So general was his reputation that his
name was embodied in proverbs. One
of them, "The case is altered, quoth
Plowden," has occasioned some specula-
tion as to its origin. The most probable
explanation is that Plowden was con-
sulted by one of the romish persuasion
who was proceeded against for hearing
mass, and that he gave an unfavourable
opinion of the case until his client told
him that the service had been performed
by a layman who had merely assumed
the sacerdotal character for the purpose
of informing against those who were
present ; whereupon the acute lawyer re-
marked, " The case is altered ; no priest,
no mass,'' and succeeded in extricating
his client from the meshes of the penal
laws.

His works are :

Daines Barrington, and lord Campbell
concur in extolung the merits of Plowden
as a reporter. It is observable that in



his Reports this great jurist rai-ely names
himself. His arguments are usually
given as those of an apprentice of the
Middle-temple.

NICHOLAS ROBIITSON, son of
John Robinson, by his wife Ellen daugh-
ter of William Brickdale, was born at
Aberconwy and educated at Queens'
college in this university. He proceeded
B.A. 1547-8, and soon afterwards be-
came a fellow of his college. It has been
said that he was put into his fellowship
by command from the royal commis-
sioners for the visitation of the univer-
sity. In 1551 he commenced M.A., was
bursar of his college 1551-2-3, and one
of the proctors of the university 1552.
Plays written by him were acted at
Queens' college 1550, 1552, and 1553.
In 1555 he subscribed the reman catholic
articles. He took orders from Dr. Glynn
bishop of Bangor, who ordained him aco-
lite and subdeacon 12 March 1556-7,
deacon on the 13th, and priest on the
14th, under a special faculty from car-
dinal Pole dated 23rd February preced-
ing. Those who make him dean of
Bangor at this period are in error. In
1577-8 he was dekn of his college. It
is said that he suffered much for his re-
ligion in the reign of queen Mary. This
seems hardly probable. On 20 Dee.

1559 archbishop Parker licensed him to
preach throughout his province, and he
was then or about that time appointed
one of his chaplains. In 1560 he pro-
ceeded B.D., and in 1561 was vice-
president of Queens' college. He was
now in such repute that he was suggested
as a proper person to be appointed as
master of Pembroke hall and as provost
of Eton college, but he did not obtain
either of these preferments. In Decem-
ber that year he preached at S. Paul's-
cross, and bishop Grindal characterised
his sermon as very good. On the 13th
of the same month the queen presented
him to the rectory of Shepperton in Mid-
dlesex, whereto he was admitted on the
19th. On 16 June 1562 he was insti-
tuted to the archdeaconry of Merioneth,
as he was on the 26th of August in the
same year to the sinecure rectory of
Northop Flintshire. In right of his
archdeaconry he sat in the convocation
of 1562-3. He subscribed the thirty-
nine articles, and voted against the pro-
posal which was made, but not agreed to,
to make essential modifications in certain
rites and ceremonies of the church. He
was at Cambridge during the queen's
visit in August 1564, and has written
an account of the proceedings on that
memorable occasion. He had the rectory
of Witney Oxfordshire, but we know not
at what period he was admitted thereto.
He was created D.D. in this university
by special grace 5 April 1566, and in
that year was elected bishop of Bangor
under a license tested at the town of
Cambridge the 80th July. His election
was assented to by the queen on the 15th
September, and confirmed by the arch-
bishop on the 5th October. On the 20th
of the same month he was consecrated at
Lambeth, and on the 6th November had
plenary restitution of the temporalities
of the see. He kept with his bishopric
in commendam the archdeaconry of
Merioneth and the rectories of Witney,
Northop and Shepperton. It may here
be mentioned that he was at Oxford
during the queen's visit to that uni-
versity in the early part of September
1566, and has written an account of the
acts then done there. On the 24th
December the same year he, with the
primate and other prelates, subscribed
a letter to the queen praying that the bUl
concerning uniformity and for confirming



the articles of the church might be al-
lowed to be proceeded with. On 7 Oct.
1567 he wrote to sir William Cecil stating
that the three shires of Carnarvon, Angle-
sey and Merioneth were in great order
and tranquillity, but he remarked on the
ignorance of the welsh; the use of images,
altars, pilgrimages and vigils being very
prevalent amongst them. On the same
day he sent to archbishop Parker a copy
of part of Eadmer's history, stating
in an accompanying letter that he hoped
shortly to have the remaining part tran-
scribed for him. He also intimated to
his grace an opinion that there were no
faithful monuments of antiqmty to be
found in Wales. In another letter to
the archbishop written about the same
period he stated that he had but two
preachers in his diocese. On 24 May
1570 he wrote to the lords of the council
giving particulars of disorderly services
performed in Beaumaris at the interment
of the corpse of one Lewis Roberts, out
of mere ignorance and in compliance
with a foolish custom, but informing
their lordships that all the parties had
done penance. We find him acting as
one of the commissioners for ecclesiastical
causes at Lambeth 23 April 1571, when
Christopher Goodman made his pro-
testation of obedience to the queen. In
the convocation holden the same year bis-
hop Robinson renewed his subscription to
the articles of the church. In May 1572
he with other prelates, on a complaint
by the proctors of this university against
the queen's new statutes, determined
that there was no great cause for
reformation, and that the younger men
were censurable for seeking an alter-
ation by disordered means. In 1573
he gave up the archdeaconry of Meri-
oneth, taking however instead the arch-
deaconry of Anglesey, and in or about
November 1574 he resigned the rectory
of Shepperton. On 2 May 1576 the
archbishop of Canterbury issued a com-
mission empowering bishop Robinson
and Thomas Tale, LL.D. to visit the
diocese of Bangor. On 2 March 1577-8
he and Dr. Elisius Price were empowered
to examine certain persons who had had
dealings with Hugh Owen a rebel. On
17 Feb. 1578-9 his name was inserted
in a commission of oyer and terminer
for the counties of Denbigh and Flint.
In 1583 he took out a commission where-

by tlie archbishop empowered him and
William Merrick, XL.D. his vicar-general
to visit the diocese of Bangor.

His death occurred on 13 Feb. 1584-5,
and he was buried on the 17th of the
same month in Bangor cathedral on the
south side of the high altar, where is a
flat stone on which his effigy and arms
were delineated in brass. There was also
an inscription. The brasses have been
for the most part taken away, but the
following fragment of the inscription re-
mains :
