Lewes

A Welshman. Guard.

One day in July [year not filled in in text], a Welshman called Lewes (described as one of the guard) entered the shop where Wilmot was apprentice.

Richard Woodman

(at least 1524 - 1557)

Ironmaker. Martyr. Of Warbleton, Sussex. Imprisoned with John Philpot.

Woodman is mentioned by Story at Philpot's first examination as a 'fellow' of Philpot, loving scripture. 1563, p. 1390; 1570, p. 1962; 1576, p. 1689; 1583, p. 1796.

Woodman was apprehended for challenging Fairebank [once a married priest, of Warbleton] for preaching differently under Mary from what he had preached under Edward VI. 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, pp. 1983-84.

He was brought before John Ashbornham, Master Tonston, Master Culpepper, and Master Roberts [all JPs for Sussex] who sent him to the King's Bench. 1563, p. 1573, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

He remained in the King's Bench for over 18 months (from June 1557), from whence he was transferred by Story to Bonner's coalhouse, where he remained for one month before examination. 1563, p. 1573, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

He was released from Bonner on 18 December only to be re-apprehended, thanks to his father, brother, kinsfolk and friends. 1563, p. 1573, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

Gage and his men arrived at Woodman's house late at night to seize him, having already seized two of his children. 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

Woodman hid in a secret place in his house, after which his wife let the men who were searching for him enter. 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

Woodman was found. He tried to escape but fell into a hole and was captured by 'Parker the Wild'. 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

John Fauconer berated Woodman, saying that he was no angel (an accusation had been made by parishioners that he had said he was an angel). 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

Woodman's brother-in-law George Beching was worried that Woodman might have thought that he had betrayed him, but Woodman told him that he did not suspect him. 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

A pewterer from Lewes turned against Woodman. 1563, p. 1574, 1570, p. 2171, 1576, p. 1875, 1583, p. 1984.

The reason for the use of these works of reference is that they present the jurisdictional and ecclesiastical position as it was before the major Victorian changes. The descriptions therefore approximate to those applying in the sixteenth century, after the major changes of 1535-42. Except for the physical locations, which have not changed, the reader should not therefore take these references as being accurate in the twenty-first century.

Queene Mary. The examination and answer of Mathew Plaise.

MarginaliaAnno 1556. Iune.Arch. Then he asked me, what was that he brake?

Auns. I sayd, that he tooke.

Arch. What was it that he did take?

Auns. I sayd the text sayth, he tooke bread.

Arch. Wel, then thou sayest it was but bread that his Disciples did eate, by thy reason.

Auns. Thus much I say: looke what hee gaue them, they did eate in deede.

Arch Why, then was not that his body that they did eate?

Auns. It was that which he brake.

Arch. Well sayd he, I perceiue thy meaning well inough, for thou doest thinke it is but breade still, and that hee was not able to make it his body.

Auns. That is your exposition vpon my minde.

Arch. Then saide he, what diddest thou receiue when thou diddest receiue last?

Auns. I sayde, I doe beleue, that I did eate Christes flesh, and drinke his bloud. For he saith: My flesh is meat in deede, and my bloud is drinke in deede.

Arch. Then he sayd, I had well aunsweared, thinking to haue had some aduauntage at my hand, and praied me to tell him, how I did eate his flesh and drinke his bloud.

Auns. Then I sayde, I must aunswer you by the woorde, Christ sayeth: He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my bloude, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Arch. Then he faced out the matter with Sophistrie, and sayde, I did eate Christe, as that Church was in his eye, with many such like mockes, but woulde not let me aunswere one woorde.

Commis. Then the Commissarie did aske mee, if I did not remember S. Paule, which did rebuke the Corinthes for theyr euill behauior, and because they made no difference of the Lordes body, and brought in to prooue hys matter, howe he called him selfe bread in the 6. of Iohn. So Paul sayth: MarginaliaFalse alleaging the Scriptures.So oft as ye eate of this breade (meaning Christes body) vnwoorthely, ye eate and drinke your owne damnation, because ye make no difference of the Lordes body. For thus sayeth Christ: The bread that I will geue you is my flesh. Now, it is no bread, but it is his flesh. And thus he alledged euery Scripture false to make vp the matter.

[Back to Top]

Auns. Then I sayde, I did beleeue the woordes of Paule very wel, euen as he had spoken them. For thus he sayeth: He that eateth and drinketh vnwoorthely, eateth and drynketh hys owne damnation, because hee maketh no difference of the Lordes body.

Commis. What is the cause that he eateth his owne damnation?

Auns. I sayd, Saint Paule declareth it plainly wyth these woordes: If ye had iudged your selues, ye should not haue bene iudged of the Lord.

Arch. Then the Archdeacon sayde, he marueiled whye I would not say, that he called the breade hys bodye, seeing Cranmer, Ridley, and Latimer with many other, sayd he called it his bodye. MarginaliaThey sayd that Christ called it his body: but they sayd not, that it was his body.

Auns. I saide, you haue condemned them as heretickes, and you wold haue me say with them, because you wold kill me.

Arch. Then he saide: In that they said it was his bodye, they did say the truth.

Auns. I asked wherefore they were killed, seeing they sayd the truth?

Bishop. Then sayde the Byshop, that he had all theyr aunsweres, and that they did not beleue as they said. For they sayd, Christ called it his body, but it was not his naturall body: but thou shall answere me by and by, whether it be his body or not, or els I will anger thee.

Auns. Then I sayd: I had answeared him by the word already, and did beleeue it also: therefore if he did condemne me for that, my life was not deare vnto me, & I was sure he should not scape vnpunished: for God wil be reuenged vpon such murtherers.

Arch. Then the Archdeacon intreated mee to be ruled by him, & take mercy while it was offered: for if I were condemned, I must needes be burned. Yet he would not say but my soule might be saued: with many moe wordes, and desired me that I would beleue hym, for he would speake the truth, beginning how Christ fed fiue thousande wyth foure loaues, and how he turned þe water into wine: euen so Christ tooke breade and blest it, and when he had done, he brake it, and sayd: This is my body, and then he commāded them to eat it, and therfore it must nedes be his body.

[Back to Top]

Auns. Then I desired him to speake the text right, or els I would not beleeue him.

Arch. Then he stoode vp and put off his cap, and thanked me for teaching of him, and sayde: I was a stubberne fellow, and tooke scorne to be taught.

Auns. I sayd, I ought to holde him accursed, if he taught doctrine contrary to Christ and his Apostles.

Arch. Then he asked me, whether I did beleue that Christ did geue that he tooke, or not?

Auns. I said, I do beleue as much as can be proued by the Scripture, and more I will not beleeue.

Arch. Then he began with Moyses rod, howe God commanded him to lay it down, and it was turned into a serpent. Seing that this was by Moyses being but a man, how much more Christ being both God & man tooke one thing, and gaue to his Disciples an other?

Ans. I said, his comparison was nothing like, MarginaliaComparison betweene turning Moyses rod and the bread into Christes body: not lyke.for Moyses rod when it was laid downe, he saw that it was tourned into a verye Serpent in deede, but in this Sacrament no mā can see neither qualitie nor yet quantitie to be chāged.

[Back to Top]

Bish. Then sayd the Bishop, that mine opinion and Faith was like vnto the Capernaites.

Ans. MarginaliaThe opinion of the Papistes much lyke to the Capernaits.I sayd, theirs was more like theyr opiniō then mine.

Arch. The Archdeacon asked me, whether Christe tooke not one thing, and gaue an other?

Auns. I sayde, Looke what he brake, hee gaue vnto them, and bad them eate: and other answere I will make none, contrary to the woorde.

Arch. Then he sayd, he marueiled why I woulde not beleue them, seeing this learning had continued this fiftene hundred yeares: neither yet did saye, as other had before, howe Christ did call it his bodye.

Auns. Then I sayde, when Cranmer whyche was heere Byshop, was in authoritie, he sayde, that he did holde the truth, and commaunded vs to beleeue him, and hee hathe geuen his life for his opinion, and would you haue me to beleeue you, because you say, that you holde the truth? and that which makes me beleeue chiefly, is þe scripture, which I am sure is the truth in deede.

[Back to Top]

Bish. The Bishop sayd, he hath spoken the truthe, & that I would not beleeue him.

Auns. I sayde, if he did not nowe speake the truthe, I was sure he had spoken the truthe, for hee had preached before, doctrine cleane contrary vnto this.

Then were the rest of my articles read: which I aunswered, and in euery article, we had vp this breaden god. And they sent for a candle light, & I thought they woulde haue condemned me, but God would not suffer their cruel hearts to haue theyr pleasure at that time: blessed be hys name for euermore. Amen.

[Back to Top]

Arch. Then the Archdeacon was angry, & began to chide with me, because I woulde not desire a day of the byshop, and said: I was noughty stubberne felowe, and sayde, it had bene my duety to haue desired him to haue bene good to me, that I might haue a day.

Auns. Then I sayde: I haue spoken the truth, and therefore I would aske him no day, except he would geue me a day of his owne minde.

Commis. Then sayde the Commissarie: Doest thou not thinke that thou maiest be deceiued, seeing hee may be deceiued that hath gone to study all the daies of his life?

Auns. I saide, Yes, I mighte be deceiued in that I was a man: but I was sure Gods woord could not be deceiued.

Com. Then hee praied me to be content, and confesse that I might learne, and said, they would be glad to teach me.

Auns. And I sayde, I would be as glad to learne as any man. And thus they roase vp and went away, saying nothing.

What became of this Mathewe Plaise after, whether he died in prison, or was executed, or deliuered, I haue as yet no certaine knowledge.

Commentary  *  Close
Richard Woodman

Almost all of Foxe's narrative of the seven martyrs burned on 22 June 1557 is devoted to Woodman and almost all of the account of Woodman is based on the martyr's own writings. In the 1563 edition, Foxe printed Woodman's accounts of his six exaninations (apparently written for the benefit of Woodman's fellow believers). He also printed Woodman's letter to Mrs Roberts. In the 1570 edition, Foxe rearranged the material he had printed in his first edition. He also added Woodman's account of his capture and second arrest on 15 March 1556. There were no changes made to this account in subsequent editions.

[Back to Top]

Foxe's account of Woodman does not make sense unless one understands the legal context of Woodman's two imprisonments. At the beginning of 1554, Woodman publicly 'admonished' the rector of Warbleton for backsliding from the protestant teachings he had professed during Edward VI's reign. Woodman was then arrested for violating a statute (1 Mary 2 c. 3) forbidding the harassment ofclergy while they were performing their duties (see 1563, p. 1599; 1570, pp. 2189-90, 1576, p. 1875 and 1583, pp. 1948-49). Woodman was brought before two quarter sessions and, in June 1554, sent to Bishop Bonner. This was a move of dubious legality, as Bonner had no conceivable jurisdiction over Woodman; nevertheless Woodman was imprisoned in the King's Bench until November 1555. Woodman was then imprisoned in Bonner's palace while the Bishop interrogated him. Woodman had been studying the law and he pointed out that the rector of Warbleton had been married and thus, under Marian law, he was not a legitimate clergyman when Woodman had publicly denounced him.

This technicality secured Woodman's release on 18 December 1555. Woodman then returned to his native Sussex where he became an itinerant lay preacher. Woodman's activities created a local uproar and warrants were issued for his arrest. Woodman went into hiding and then fled overseas. After his second arrest, described in Foxe, Woodman insisted that he be tried by his ordinary, the bishop of Chichester. Unfortunately for the authorities, the bishop-designate of Chichester, John Christopherson, had not been consecrated and thus could not preside over Woodman's trial. Finally, the authorities found a way around this by having the cardinal use his legatine authority to appoint Nicholas Harpsfield, the archdeacon of Canterbury, as Woodman's ordinary. Woodman was then duly tried and executed.
