These fyue to close vp the finall rage of Quene Maries persecution, for the testimony of the word, for which so many had dyed for before, gaue vp theyre lyues, mekely and paciently suffering the violent malyce of the Papistes. Which papistes althoughe then might haue eyther well spared them, or els differred their death, knowing of the sicknes of Quene Mary: yet such was the implacable despite of that generation, that some there be that saye, the Archdecon of Caunterbury the same time being at London, and vnderstanding the daunger of the Quene, incontinently made al post hast home, to dispatch these, whō before he had then in his cruell custody.
