Commentary  *  Close

Alice Doyly had married three times; first to a John Wilmot, the second time to William Cottesmere, a member of an important gentry family and the third time to Thomas Doyly, the head of one of Oxfordshire's most ancient gentry families. By the time of her third marriage her moveable goods alone were estimated at £1000 (Andrew Hope, 'Lollardy: The Stone the Buiders Rejected?' in Protestantism and the National Church in Sixteenth Century England, ed., Peter Lake and Maria Dowling [Beckenham, 1987], pp. 8-10). Alice would be investigated again for heresy (whether as a result of this testimony or on later charges is unknown) but there is no record of her being convicted.

In this Table aboue prefixed, thou hast, gentle reader, to see and vnderstād: First the number and names of these good men and wemen troubled and molested by the Churche of Rome, and all in one yeare: of whom few or none were learned, beyng simple lobourers and artificers, but as it pleased the Lorde to worke in them knowledge and vnderstandyng, by readyng a few Englishe bookes, such as they could get in corners. Secondly what were their opinions we haue also described. And thirdly herein is to be noted moreouer, the blind ignorāce & vncourteous dealing of the bishops against thē, not only in that they, by their violēt othe, & captious interrogatories, constreyned the children to accuse their parentes, and parentes the children: the husband the wife, and wife the husband. 

Commentary  *  Close

Foxe is genuinely shocked by Bishop Longland's methods of investigation, which undermined the integrity of both family and community.

&c: but especiallye in that most wrongfully they so afflicted them, without all good reason or cause, onely for the syncere veritie of Gods woorde, and readyng his holy Scriptures.

MarginaliaThe reasons & probations of their doctrine.Now it remaineth, that as you haue heard their opinions (whiche principally in number were iiij.) so also we declare their reasons and Scriptures whereupon they grounded, & after that consequently the order and maner of penaunce to them inioyned by the bishop. And first agaynst pilgremage and agaynst worshippyng of Images, they vsed this texte of the reuelat. Apocal. 9. I saw horses in a vision, and the heades of them, as the heades of Lyons: smoke, fier, and brimstone came out of their mouthes. VVith these iij plagues, the third part of men were slayne of the smoke, and of the fire, and of the brimstone that came out of the mouthes of them. They that were not slayne of these iij. plagues, were such as worshipped not deuils, and Jmages of golde and siluer, of brasse, of tree, & of stone. &c. Ex Regist. Longland. Fol. 72.
