Of this reverend and eminent person, Ful-
ler, in his Worthies of Shropshire, thus



speaks : — " Thomas Gataker was a branch
of an ancient family so planted, by Divine
Providence, at Gatacre Hall, in this county,
(Shropshire) that they have flourished the
owners thereof, by a non-interrupted suc-
cession, from the time of King Edward the
Confessor. This Thomas, being designed a
student for the law, was brought up in the
Temple ; where, in the reign of Queen
Mary, he was often present at the examina-
tion of persecuted people. Their hard usage
made him pity their persons and admirable
patience, and to approve their opinions.
This was no sooner perceived by his parents
(being of the old persuasion) but instantly
they sent him over to Louvaine in the Low
Countries, to win him to a compliance to
the popish religion, and for his better en-
couragement, settled on him an estate of
one hundred pounds per annum, old rent.
All would not do. Whereupon his father
recalled him home, and revoked his own
grant, to which his son did submit, as un-
willing to oppose the pleasure of his pa-
rents, though no such revokation could take
effect without his free consent. He after-
wards devoted his mind from the most profit-
able to the most necessary study : from law
to divinity ; and finding friends to breed him
in Oxford, he became the profitable pastor
of St. Edmund's, in Lombard Street, London,
where he died anno 1593, leaving Thomas
Gataker, his learned son, heir to his paynes
and piety." — The said

Thomas Gataker, who was also a church-
man, was rector of Rotherhithe, and B. D.
of the university of Cambridge. He was b.
4th September, 1574. He m. four times,
viz. first, Mrs. Cupper, a widow, but had no
surviving issue ; secondly, a daughter of
the Rev. Charles Vinner, and had a son,

well, esq. of Hilbishop, in Somersetshire,
