Actes and Monumentes of the Church.

Now after this scourging, the said T. Hinshaw notwithstanding did susteine diuers conflicts and examinations sundry tymes. At last being brought before the said B. in his chapell at Fulham, there he had procured witnesses & gathered articles against him, which the yong man denyed, and would not affirme, or consēt to any interrogatory ther, and then ministred, do what they could.

[Back to Top]
The articles were these.

MarginaliaArticles obiected.COncerning Psalmes, Ashes, Holy bread, Holy water, Auricular confession, receyuynge the sacrament at Easter, hearyng dyuine seruice, then set forth. &c.

Whether he had receiued all these, or whether he would receiue them or no.

Item, what he thought of the seruice set forth in kyng Edwardes time, in his latter dayes, & in especial, what he thoughte of the veritye of Christes body in the sacrament. In whiche all his āswers, þe said T. Hinshaw kept an vpright conscience, & entangled himself wt none of their ceremonies: so merciful was þe Lord vnto him.

Not lōg after this his examination, about a fortnight or such a thing, þe foresaid Examinate fell sycke of a burning ague, MarginaliaTho. Hinshaw delyuered to M. Pugsō his maisterwherby he was deliuered vpon entreatie, vnto his master Martin Pugson in Paules Churchyard aforesayd. for þe B. thought verely, he was more like to die then to liue. The which his sicknes endured a twelf moneth or more, so þt in the meane time, Quene Mary died. thē he shortly after recouered helth and escaped death, beyng at the writing of this yet aliue, both witnes and reporter of þe same, the lord therfore be praised, Amen.

Robert wylliams a Smith.

ABout the same tyme one Robert Williās beyng apprehended in the same company, was also tormēted after þe like maner wt roddes in his arboure, who there subscribing and yelding himself by promise, to obey the lawes, after beyng let go, refused so to doe: whervppon he was earnestly sought for, but coulde not bee found, for that he kept himselfe close, and went not abrode but by stelth: and now in the meane tyme of this persecutiō, this R. Williās departed this lyfe, & so escaped the hands of his enemies, þe lord therfore be honored for euer, Amē.

* And forasmuch as I haue begō to write of Boners scourging, by thoccasion therof commeth to mind to infer by the way, his beating of other boyes and children, and drawyng them naked through the nettels, in his iorney rowyng toward Fulham. The story although it touche no matter of religion, yet because it toucheth somthynge the nature and disposition of that man, and may refreshe the reader, weried percase with other dolefull storyes, I thought here not to omit.

Boner passing from London to Fulham by barge, hauing one Milles of Christchurch & the said T. Hinshaw with him, both prisoners for religion, and the gospel of Christ, by the way as he went by water, he was saying Euensong with Harpsfield his chaplein in the barge, and beyng about the myddle of theyr deuoute Ori-

sōs, they espyed a sort of yōg boyes swimming and washing themselues in the Thamis, ouer against Lambeth, or a lytle aboue: vnto whome he went, and gaue verye gentle language, and fayre speache, vntyl he had set his men aland. That done, his men ran after the boyes to get them, MarginaliaBoners pitiful hart.as the Bishop commaunded thē before, beatyng som with nettels, drawing some thorow bushes of nettels naked, & som they made leap into the Thamis to saue themselues, that it was maruel they wer not drowned. Now as the children for feare did crye, and this skirmyshyng was betwene them, immediately came a greatter ladde thyther, to knowe what the matter ment, that the boyes made suche noyse, whom when the B. espyed, he asked him whether he would maintayn them in their doings or no: vnto whom the yong fellow made aunswere stoutly, yea. Then the byshop commaūded him to be takē also: but he ran away with spede, and therby auoyded the bishops blessing. Now when the bishop sawe him to flie away, and an other man sittyng vppon a rayle, in the way where he ran, willed him likewyse to stop the boy: and because he would not, he commaūded his men to fet þe man to him also: but he hearyng that, ran away as fast as he could, & by leping ouer the ditche, escaped the bishop in lyke maner. Then the B. seing the successe of his batell to proue no better, cryed to a couple of fery boyes, to ron and holde him, that last ranne away. And for that they sayde they coulde not, (as in dede it was true) therefore he caused hys men by and by to take and beate them: þe boyes hearyng that, leapt into the water to saue thēselues: notwithstanding they wer caught, and in the water by the byshops men were holden and beaten. Now, after the ende of thys greate skirmyshe and the Castle wonne, that neuer was kept, the byshops men retourned to theyr maister again into the barge, and he & Harpsfield his Chapleyn went to theyr Euensong a freshe, where they lefte, MarginaliaBoners deuout orasōsand so sayd forth þe rest of theyr seruice as cleane withoute malyce, as an egge without meate. The Lorde geue hym repentaunce (yf it be his wyll) and grace to become a new man, Amen.

MarginaliaA pore beggar whipt at Salesburye for not receyuing with papists at Easter.Vnto these aboue specifyed, is also to be added, the miserable whyppyng of a certain pore starued sely beggar, who for malice þt he would not receyue the Sacramente at Easter in the towne of Colingborow, was brought to Salisbury with billes and gleiues to the Chancellor Doctor Geffray, who cast him into the Dōgeō, and after caused him miserably to be whypped of two catchpoles. The syght wherof, made all godly heartes to rew it, to see suche tyrannye to be shewed vpon such a simple & sely wretche. that they which saw hym, complayningly haue reported, that they neuer sawe a more symple creature. but what pitie can moue the hearts of insensible Papistes?
