MarginaliaA note of D. Weston.¶ To beholde the working of Gods iudgementes, it is wonderous. In the first yeare of Q. Mary, when the Clergie was assembled in the Conuocation house, and also afterward when the disputation was in Oxford agaynst D. Cranmer, Ridley, and Latimer, he that had seene then Doct. Weston the Prolocutor in his ruffe, how highly he tooke vpō him in the Scholes, & how stoutly he stoode in þe Popes quarell agaynst simple and naked truth, full litle would haue thought, and lesse did he thinke him selfe (I dare say) that his glory & lofty lookes should haue bene brought down so soone, especially by them of his owne Religion, whose part he so doughtely defended. But such is the reward and end commonly of them, who presumptuously oppose them selues to striue agaynst the Lord, as by þe example of this Doctorly Prolocutor right well may appeare. For not long after þe disputation aboue mentioned, agaynst Byshop Cranmer and his fellowes, MarginaliaD. Weston out of fauour with the Papistes.God so wrought agaynst the sayd Doct. Weston, that he fell in great displeasure with Cardinall Poole and other Byshops, because he was vnwilling to geue vppe his Deanery and house of Westminster, vnto the Mōkes and religious men, whom in dede he fauoured not, although in other thinges he maintained the Church of Rome. Who not withstaynding, at last through importunate sute, gaue vp Westminster, and was Deane of Windsore: MarginaliaD. Weston taken in adultery.where not long after, he was apprehēded in adultery, and for the same was by the Cardinall put from all his spirituall liuinges.

MarginaliaD. Weston appealed to Rome.Wherfore he appealed to Rome, and purposed to haue fled out of the Realme, but was taken by the way, and committed to the Tower of London, and there remained vntill Queene Elizabeth was proclaimed Queene, at which tyme he beyng deliuered, fell sicke and dyed. MarginaliaThe death of D. Weston.The common talke was that if he had not so sodeinly ended his life, he would haue opened and reueled the purpose of the chief of the Clergy, meanyng the Cardinall, which was to haue taken vp kyng Henries body at Windsore and to haue burned it. And thus much of Doct. Weston.

MarginaliaA note of D. Chadsey.¶ Concernyng which Doct. Chadsey here is to be noted, that in þe begynnyng of kyng Edwardes reigne he recanted and subscribed to 34. Articles, Marginalia34. Articles of D. Chadsey. wherin he then fully consented and agreed with his owne hand writyng to the whole forme of doctrine approued and allowed then in the Church, MarginaliaDoct. Chadsey subscribed to the reformed religion in K. Edwardes tyme. as well concernyng Iustification by faith onely, as also the doctrine of the two Sacramētes then receaued, denying as well þe Popes supremacie, trāsubstantiation, Purgatory, Inuocation of Saintes, eleuation and adoration of the Sacramēt, the sacrifice, and veneration of the Masse, as also all other like excrementes of Popish superstition, accordyng to the kynges booke then set forth. Wherfore the more maruell it is, that he being coūted such a famous and learned Clerke, would shew him selfe so fickle and vnstable in his assertions, so double in his doynges, to alter his Religion accordyng to tyme, and to mainteine for truth, not what hee thought best, but what hee might most safely defend. So long as the state of the Lord Protectour and of his brother stode vpright, what was the the conformitie of this D. Chadsey, his own Articles in Latin written and subscribed with his own hand, do declare, which I haue to shew, if he will deny them. MarginaliaD. Chadsey mutable and inconstant in hys religion.But after the decay of the kinges vncles, the fortune of them turned not so fast, but his Religion turned withall, & eftsoones he tooke vpon him to dispute agaynst Peter Martyr in vpholding transubstantiation at Oxford, which a litle before with his own hand writyng he had ouerthrowen.
