I sayd, if my Lorde wil me any good, I praye you desire hym to suffer my frendes to come to me. So they sayd th y would speake for me. But I heard no more of thē. This is the first examinacion of me Thomas Haukes, beinge examined by Edmonde Boner, then Byshop of London, and by his chaplaynes and Doctours at Fullam, 4. myles from Londō, where I laye tyll I came to pryson to Westminster: and after his two men had bene with me, I heard no more of him, til the 3. day of Septēbre. 

Commentary  *  Close

In the Rerum (p. 460) the date is given as 30 September, while it is given as 3 September in all editions of the Acts and Monuments. For once the date in the Rerum is correct; it is confirmed by the manuscript versions of Haukes's examinations (BL, Lansdowne 389, fos. 75r and 180v). The date of 3 September was probably a printer's error in the 1563 edition which was repeated in subsequent editions.

¶ Here foloweth the second tyme of mine examination, the which was the 3. day of September.

for the Byshop did send his men for me, to come to his palace to London, and so my keper & his mē brought me to his place the same day.

THe Byshop of Wynchester, then beynge Lord Chauncellor, preached that daye at Paules crosse: and the byshop of London sayd to my keper, I thinke your man will not go to the sermon to daye.

Haukes. Yes my Lorde. I praye you let me go: and that that is good, I wyll receiue, and the rest I wil leaue behind me, and so I wēt. And when the sermon was done, I and my keeper came to the byshops house, and there we remained tyl dynner was done: and after dinner the bishop called for me, and asked me if I were the same man that I was before.

[Back to Top]

Haukes. I am no chaungeling, neither none wyll be.

Boner. Ye shall fynde me no chaungelynge nother. And so he returned into his chamber, and there he did write the side of a shete of paper, & al that while I stoode in the great chamber, & as many with me, as might well stande in the chamber. And as I stoode, D. Smithe came vnto me (who once recanted, as it appeareth in print) saying that he would be glad to talke brotherly with me. I asked him what he was. Then sayde they that stoode by, he is Doctour Smith. Then said I: are you he that did recant? And he sayd, it was no recantation, but a declaration.

[Back to Top]

Haukes. Ye were best to terme it well, for your owne honesty.

D. Smyth. Shal I term it as it pleaseth you?

MarginaliaDoctour Smithes recantationHaukes. To be short with you, I wil know whether ye wil recant any more or no, before that I talke with you, credite you, or beleue you. And so I departed from him, to the other syde of the chamber. Then sayde the Bishops men and his Chaplaines, that my Lord commaunded me to talke with hym. Then they that stoode by cryed with a great noise: hang him, burne him: it is pity that he lyueth, that disobeyeth my Lordes commaundement.

Then sayde one Myles Huggarde: where prooue you that infantes were baptised?

Haukes. Go teache all Nations, baptisynge them in the name of the father, & of the sonne,

& of the holy ghost. Sir, here is none excepted.

MarginaliaMyles Huggard.M. Hug. What? shal we go teach children?

Haukes. That woorde doth trouble you: it might be left out ful wel: it is to much for you to teach. Is not your name Miles Huggard?

M. Hug. So am I called.

Haukes. Be you not a Hosyer, and dwel in Pudding lane? 

Commentary  *  Close

It was very unusual for a lay person, much less an artisan, to be involved in the interrogation of a heretic. This is a significant indication of Hogarde's status as a polemicist and propagandist.

M. Hug. Yes that I am, and ther I do dwel.

Haukes. It woulde seme so: for ye can better skyll to eate a puddyng, and make a hose, then in scripture either to answer, or tappose. 

Commentary  *  Close

Haukes is probably quoting a derisory rhyme which the protestants were circulating about Hogarde.

With that he was in a great rage, & did chafe vp and downe. Then I desired that some mā would take the paine to walke the gētleman hee dydde freate so for anger. Then one that stode by me, (who is person of Hornechurche and Rumford in Essex,) sayde: alas what do you meane? a yonge man to be so stubburne? there seemeth to be much pride in you.

[Back to Top]

Haukes. Are not ye þe person of Hornchurch?

Parson. Yes that I am.

Haukes. Did ye not set such a Priest in your benefice?

Parson. Yes, for a shyft. 

Commentary  *  Close

I.e., as a necessity.

Haukes. Like will to like: suche maister, suche man. For I knowe that priest to bee a verye vile man, as any coulde be: I asked the person what kinne he was to the weather Cocke of Paules? and he fell in a great laughter wyth the rest of his companyons. He sayd that I did rail. Thē said a nother that stode by vnto me: what boke haue you here? I answered, þe new Testamēt. May I loke in it said he? Yea, that ye may sayd I. And so he looked in my boke, and sayde it was corrupt. I answered hym: if the thinges contayned in it be true, then are ye all false Prophetes. He said that he woulde appose me in the first word of the Testament, saying: here is a generation of Christ. And Esay saith, no man can make a generation.

[Back to Top]

Haukes. What meaneth Esaye by that?

I woulde learne of you (said he.)

Haukes. Ye woulde be angrye if the scholer shoulde learne the mayster: but if ye will haue me to teache you, I will tell you Esaias meaning. Then said he, that no man can make a generation betwene the father and the sonne: but you (I dare saye) did know it before.

Haukes. Why then Esay denieth not the generation?

Then said he, why is Christ called Christ?

Haukes. Because he is a Messias.

Then said he, why is he called a Messias?

Haukes. Because hee was so prophecied by the prophetes. Then sayde hee: why is your booke called a booke?

Haukes. These woordes dooe breede more strife, then godly edifying. Beware sayde he, that ye do not decline from the churche: for yf ye doo, you wyl proue your selfe an hereticke.
