In 1689 he entered St. Edmund Hall, Oxford, under the tuition of his brother, who was then vice-principal. His learning and amiable qualities won him the regard of all parties. In 1706 he was appointed chaplain to the British factory at Leghorn, being the first to fill that office. He was at first much harassed by the Inquisition, and had to seek the intervention of the English government. Bad health, caused by the climate and his dislike of exercise, obliged him to resign, and he preached for the last time on 8 Jan. 1712-13. He returned home by way of Florence, Rome, and Naples, and through France, collecting books, sculpture, and curiosities. He resumed residence at Corpus Christi in 1714, became D.D., and during the same year was elected president of his college, He died on 3 Jan. 1714-15 and was buried in the college chapel........ £60.00
