☞ The witnesses aboue named being vppon these Interrogatories deposed, dooe attest and witnesse some in his excuse, some contrarye. Of whome twoo of them, that is Iohn Babington his bedfellowe, and Thomas Hawes make aunswere and say that they neuer knew nor saw, either in woorde or dede by him other wise then well. The other Wylliam Wood, Thomas Cornishe, Richarde Lewkenor, Owen Claydon, and Nicholas Groue, deposing agaynste him, gaue witnesse in this effect as followeth, videlicet: That the saide Gibson for twoo yeares before was not confessed vnto anye Priest, neyther in that space dyd receiue the Sacrament of the altar, as they so terme it. Whereunto Master Gibson grauntyng, & not denying the same, gaue thankes vnto god for that he had so done. MarginaliaThe wordes & talke of M. Gibson with Boner and his fellowes.Boner receiuing these depositions of the witnesses aboue named, beganne to charge him with the same, obiectinge further and layinge more matter vnto his charge, that the sayd Gibson, beinge on a time in the Bishops house, and required by the saide Bishoppe to goe vnto his Chappel with him to heare Masse refused so to doe. To the whiche Maister Gybson aunswered agayne, that he neyther hadde saide or doone anye thinge therein, whereof

he was sorye, or whiche he would reuoke, but that he woulde stande therin, and seale it with his bloude. Emong others whiche were at this examination, was also ther present Iohn, Bishoppe of Winchester, who amongest other communication, hadde these woordes, saying: that it was no pitie to burne an heretique. To whome Gibson replyed agayne, and sayde: he thoughte it not requisite nor lawfull to burne them as heretiques. And then the Bishoppe of Winchester sayde that he would not common or talke anye further with the same Gibson, because he perceiued him to bee an heretique, and thereby excommunicate.

Then Gibson: yea my Lord (quod he.) yours and other Bishops cursinges be blessyngs vnto me. &c.

After this, another daye being assigned hym to appeare agayne, muche talke past betwene him and Darbyshire, then Chauncellour. But in fine, being required to sweare that he should aunswere vnto all they would demaunde, he denied to aunswere vnto all thinges the Byshoppes should commaunde him as Ordinary. For he is not, saith he, mine Ordinary, and so bydde him goe tell the Bishop, before þe whiche Bishoppe he beinge then commaunded to appeare the Friday next following, was brought vnto the Iustice Hal without Newgate, wher he had the like conflictes with the foresaide bishop and diuers other Iustices. At length was assigned the Saterday following, to be present in the Bishoppes consistory Court, to here his finall sentence. At whiche daye and place, the said Examinate appearing as he was cōmaunded, the Bishoppe after other matter of communication, asked him if he knew any cause, why the sentence should not be redde against hym. To whome the saide maister Gibson aunswered, that the Bishop had nothing wherfore iustly to condemne him. The Bishops reason was againe obiecting to him, that men sayd he was an euill man. To whome Gibson replyinge again: yea, saith he, and so may I saye of you also. To be short, after this and such other talke, the Bishoppe after a few phrases of his accustomed exhortations for maner sake, hasted vnto the sentence. which being redde, Gibson yet againe admonished to remember himselfe and to saue his soule, saide, that he would not hear my Lordes babling, and said moreouer, boldly protesting and affirming that he was contrary, and an enemy to them al in his mind and opinion, although he had afore time kepte it secrete in minde for feare of the lawe. And speaking to the Bishop: blessed, sayd he, am I, that am cursed at youre handes. We haue nothinge now but lawe, thus will I. for as the Bishop sayth, so must it be. And nowe heresy is to turn the truthe of gods woorde into lyes, and that doe you, meaning the byshop and his fellowes.
