but that ye be here clothed in the Queenes colours. I hope ye be but a sommers byrd, in that ye be dressed in whyte and grene. &c.

A note of maister Rogers.

MarginaliaRefer this to the pag. 1023IN the dayes of kyng Edward the syxt, there was a controuersie amonge the Byshoppes and Clergie, for wearing of priestes cappes &c. Maister Rogers, he that was burnt in quene Maries dayes, beyng one among them, sayde he would neuer agree to it, but vpon this condition: that is, if that they woulde haue suche a vniformitie of wearynge the cappe &c. then it should also be decreed with all, that the Papists for a difference betwixt them and thother shold be constrained to weare vppon their sleues a chalice with an host vpon it. Whereunto if they woulde consent, he woulde agree to thother: otherwyse he would neuer agree to the settyng forth of the same, nor were the cappe, as in dede he neuer did.

¶ The aunswer of Robert Farrar B. of S. Dauies, before Winchester & other.

MarginaliaThis belongeth to the pag. 1098.AT his first comming and knelyng before my Lord Chauncellor, the Byshop of Duresme and Worcester, who sat at the table, and maister Rochester, maister Southwell, maister Burne and another standing at the tables end, My Lorde Chauncelor sayde vnto him on this sort.

Winc. Nowe syr, ye haue heard how the world goeth here.

Farrer. If it lyke your honour I knowe not.

Winc. What saye you? dooe not you knowe thågs abrode, notwithstāding you ar a prisoner?

Far. No my Lord, I knowe not

Win. Lo (said he) what a froward fellow is this?

Far. If it please your Lordship, howe shoulde I knowe any thyng abrode being a prysoner?

Winc. Haue ye not heard of the comming in of the Lorde Cardinall?

Far. I knowe not my Lorde Cardynall, but I heard that a Cardinall was come in, but I did not beleue it, and I beleue it not yet.

Worc. I pray your Lordshyp (sayd the Byshop of Worcester) tell him your selfe that he maye knowe what is done.

Winc. The Quenes maiestie and the parliamēt hath restored religion into the same state it was in at the beginning of the reigne of kyng Henry the eight. ye are in the quenes debt, and her maiestie will be good vnto you, if you wil returne to the catholyke churche.

Far. In what state I am cōcerning my debtes to the Quenes maiestie in the courte of Excheter, my Lord Treasurer knoweth: and the last time that I was before your honour, and the first time also, I shewed you that I had made an othe neuer to consent nor agree, that the byshop of Rome should haue any power or iurisdiction within this realme. And further, I nede not to reherse to your Lordship: you knowe it well enough.

Burn. You were once abiured for heresie (sayde maister Burne) in Oxforde.

Far. That was I not.

Burn. You were.

Far. I was neuer, it is not true.

Burn. You went from saint Dauies to Scotlād.

Far. That did I not.

Burn. you did.

Far. That did I neuer, but I went from york into Scotland.

Burn. Ah, so sayd I: you went with Barlow.

Far. That is true, but neuer from S. Dauies.

Bur. you caried bookes out of Oxforde to the Archebyshop of yorke L. Lee.

Far. That did I not.

Burn. you did

Far. I did not, but I caried olde bookes from S. Oswall to the Byshop of yorke.

Burn. you supplanted your maister.

Far. That did I neuer in my lyfe.

Burn. By my faith you did.

Far. Forsoth I did not, neuer in my lyfe, but I did sheelde and saue my maister from daunger, and that I obtayned of kynge Henry the eight for my true seruice, I thāke God therfore

Burn. My Lord (saide maister Burne to my L. Chauncellor) he hath an ill name in Wales as euer had any.

Far. That is not so, whosoeuer sayeth so they shall neuer be able to proue it.

Burn. He hath deceiued the quene in dyuerse sōmes of monye.

Far. That is vtterly vntrue. I neuer deceiued king nor quene of one peny in my lyfe, and you shall neuer be able to proue that you saye.

Winc Thou art a false knaue.

Far. Then Farrer stoode vp vnbydden (for al that whyle he kneled) and sayde: no my Lorde, I am a true man, I thanke God for it. I was borne vnder kyng Henry the seuenth, I serued kyng Henry the eyght, and kyng Edwarde the sixt truly, and haue serued the quenes maiestie that nowe is truely with my poore hearte and worde: more I could not doe, and I was neuer false nor shalbe by the grace of God.

[Back to Top]

Winc. Howe sayest thou? wylt thou be conformable?

Far. My Lord if it lyke your honor, I haue made an othe to God and to kyng Henry the eight, and also to kyng Edward, and in that to the quenes maiestie, the whiche I can neuer breake whyle I lyue, to die for it.

Dures. you had made an other othe before.

Far. No my Lorde, I made neuer none other othe before.

Dures. you made a vowe.

Far. That, did I not.

Winc. you made a confession to lyue without a wyfe.

Far. No my Lorde, if it like your honour that did I neuer. I made a profession to life chaste, not without a wyfe.

Wor. you were sworne to him that was maister of your house.

Far. That was I neuer.

Winc. Well, you are a froward knaue, we wyll haue no more to doe with you: seinge that you will not come, we wilbe short with you & that you shall knowe within this seuennight.

Far. I am as it pleaseth your honor to call me, but I can not breake my othe which your lordship your selfe made before me, and gaue in exāple. The which confirmed my conscience then I can neuer breake that othe whylest I lyue to die for it.

Dures. Wel sayeth he, he standeth vpon his oth. call an other.

My Lord Chauncellor then dyd ryng a litle bell, and Farrer sayde: I praye God saue the kyng and Quenes maiesties, long to continue in honor to Gods glorie and their comfortes & the confort of the whole Realme, and I praye God saye all your honors, and so he departed.
