Thomas Philippe 
Commentary  *  Close

A pointmaker of the parish of Micheal le Querne, London. John Hacker informed on him in 1528. He was imprisoned and later held in the house of Thomas More (then Lord Chancellor), who turned him back over to Bishop Stokesley (BL, Harley MS 421, fo. 13r; More, Apology, CWTM 9, p. 126). He abjured, but abjured his abjuration and was imprisoned in the Tower (1570, pp. 1185-6, 1576, p. 1014; 1583, p. 1042). He remained imprisoned in the Tower, but working as a gaoler. In this capacity he aided evangelical prisoners (BL, Harley MS 425, fo. 138v).

The crime agaynst this Sir Iohn
Drurie was, for that, when Ro-
ger Dods came first to him to be
his seruaunt, he sware him vppon
a booke to kepe his counsails in all
thinges: and after that he shewed
him a certeine womā in his house
whom he said to be his wife, coun
sailing moreouer the said Roger
Dods vppon an Imbring day, to
suppe with bread and chese, say-
ing: that which goeth into a mans
body defileth not a mans soule, but
that whiche goeth out of the body
defileth both body and soule.
Also that the sayde vicare
taughte him the A. B. C. to
the entent hee shoulde haue vn-
derstanding in the Apocalyps,
wherein hee said that hee shoulde
perceaue all the falsehode of the
world, and all the truth. He said
farther more vnto him, when hee
had bene at the lady of Worcester,
and at the bloud of hailes, whiche
had cost him. xviij. pence, that he
had done as an ill husband, that
had plowed his land and sowen it,
but nothing to the purpose: For he
had worshipped mans hādy worke
and cast away his money, whiche
had bene better geuē to the poore:
for hee shoulde worship but one
God, and no handy worke of man.
Item, when the people would offer
candels, where he was vicare, to
Mary Magdalene, he would take
thē away & say they were fooles,
that brought them thether.
