John Cardmaker

(d. 1555)

Franciscan friar. Vicar of St Bride's, London. Chancellor of Wells. Martyr. [DNB]

In 1554 Cardmaker attempted to flee England with his bishop, William Barlow, but both were arrested and imprisoned in the Fleet. 1563, p. 1141; 1570, p. 1749; 1576, p. 1494; 1583, p. 1578.

On 9 November 1554 he was brought before the Star Chamber and then put in the Fleet (1570, p. 1645; 1576, p 1403; 1583, p. 1474).

He was brought before Stephen Gardiner at St Mary Ovary's on 28 January 1555. Cardmaker submitted to Gardiner (1570, p. 1655; 1576, p 1412; 1583, p. 1483).

Barlow and Cardmaker appeared to be ready to recant. Cardmaker was imprisoned in the Counter in Bread Street where he had a 'Christian and comfortable conference' with Laurence Saunders who had been sent there after being condemned by Gardiner; Saunders persuaded Cardmaker not to recant. Thomas Martin and other catholics urged Cardmaker to recant. 1570, p. 1047; 1576, p. 1426; 1583, p. 1500; also see 1563, pp. 1141-42; 1570, p. 1750; 1576, pp. 1494-95; 1583, p. 1578.

Beard visited Cardmaker in Newgate a few days before Cardmaker's execution and tried to persuade him to recant; Cardmaker refused. 1570, p. 1754; 1576, p. 1498; 1583, p. 1581.

Cardmaker wrote a letter to a friend, denying that he had recanted. 1570, pp. 1753-54; 1576, p. 1498; 1583, p. 1581.

Cardmaker was executed on 30 May 1555. 1563, p. 1142; 1570, pp. 1751-52; 1576, pp. 1496-97; 1583, pp. 1579-80.

Stephen Gardiner told John Bradford that he would be handed over to the secular authorities if he did not follow the example of Barlow and Cardmaker. 1563, p. 1188, 1570, p. 1784, 1576, p. 1524, 1583, p. 1607.

Cardmaker sent greetings to John Bradford via the servant of an unnamed gentlewoman. 1570, p. 1803, 1576, p. 1539, 1583, p. 1622.

When examined by Bonner, John Leafe (who was burned with John Bradford) denied transubstantiation and admitted to being a 'scholer' of John Rogers, and that he believed in the doctrine of Rogers, Hooper and Cardmaker. 1563, p. 1214, 1570, p. 1804, 1576, p. 1540, 1583, p. 1623.

Grindal wrote to Ridley from his exile in Frankfort, to which letter Ridley replied. Ridley mentioned that he knew that Ferrar, Hooper, Rogers, Taylor of Hadleigh, Saunders and Tomkins, a weaver, had all been martyred, as had Cardmaker the day before he wrote this letter. 1570, pp. 1901-02, 1576, pp. 1628-30, 1583, pp. 1729-30.

John Hooper

(d. 1555)

Bishop of Gloucester and Worcester. Martyr. (DNB)

Foxe recounts Hooper's life and career before becoming a bishop (1563, pp. 1049-50; 1570, pp. 1674-76; 1576, pp. 1429-1403 [recte 1430]; 1583, pp. 1502-3).

Hooper refused to wear vestments at his consecration and was consequently imprisoned. Ultimately he made a qualified submission (1563, pp. 1050-52; 1570, pp. 1676-77; 1576, pp. 1403 [recte 1430]-31; 1583, pp. 1503-5).

Foxe relates his conduct as bishop (1563, pp. 1052-53; 1570, pp. 1677-78; 1576, pp 1431-32; 1583, p. 1505).

Hooper was summoned to London on Mary's accession and imprisoned (1563, pp. 1053-54; 1570, p. 1678; 1576, p. 1432; 1583, p. 1505).

He was ordered to attend the privy council on 22 August 1553 (1583, p. 1497 [recte 1409]).

On 31 August, Hooper appeared before the council and he was committed by them to the Fleet on the next day (1583, p. 1497 [recte 1409]). (APC IV, p. 337, has Hooper appearing on 1 September and committed to the Fleet the same day).

Foxe gives accounts of Hooper's imprisonment and examinations. 1563, pp. 1055-57; 1570, pp. 1678-80; 1576, pp. 1433-34; 1583, pp. 1506-7.

He was deprived of his bishopric, but he defended the validity of clerical marriage at his deprivation (1563, pp. 1054-55; 1570, pp. 1678-79; 1576, pp. 1432-33; 1583, p. 1403 [recte 1430]).

Hooper was rumored to have recanted after he was condemned; he wrote denying this. 1563, p. 1057; 1570, pp. 1680-81; 1576, p. 1434; 1583, pp. 1507-8.

Foxe records his degradation, journey to Gloucester and execution. 1563, pp. 1057-62 and 1064; 1570, pp. 1681-86; 1576, pp. 1434-39; 1583, pp. 1508-12.

Hooper was excommunicated and condemned to death by Stephen Gardiner on 29 January 1555 (1570, p. 1655; 1576, p. 1412; 1583, p. 1483).

His letters: 1563, pp. 1062-63; 1570, pp. 1686-93; 1576, pp. 1439-45; 1583, pp. 1512-18.

Hooper was one of the signatories to a letter of 8 May 1554 protesting against the proposed disputation at Cambridge. The letter is printed in 1563, pp. 1001-3; 1570, pp. 1639-41; 1576, pp. 1399-1400; 1583, pp. 1469-71.

On 3 January 1555, a letter was sent to Hooper informing him of the arrest of Thomas Rose's congregation at the churchyard of St. Mary-le-Bow on 1 January 1555 (1563, p. 1020).

Hooper wrote an answer to this letter (1563, p. 1020; 1570, p. 1654; 1576, p. 1411; 1583, p. 1482).

Hooper also sent a letter of encouragement to the members of Rose's congregation imprisoned in the Counter in Bread Street (1563, pp. 1021-22; 1570, pp. 1654-55; 1576, pp. 1411-12; 1583, pp. 1482-83).

He was summoned before Stephen Gardiner at St. Mary Overy's on 28 January 1554 (1570, p. 1655; 1576, p. 1412; 1583, p. 1483).

Ridley wrote a letter to Bradford and his fellow prisoners, in which Ridley speaks of his love for Taylor. The bearer of the letter to Bradford was Punt, who also carried Hooper's letters. 1570, p. 1897-98, 1576, pp. 1625-26, 1583, p. 1725.

During his examination, John Hallingdale said that Cranmer, Latimer, Ridley and Hooper were not heretics. 1563, p. 1638, 1570, p. 2222, 1576, p. 1919, 1583, p. 2026.

Hooper's Latin epistle touching matters of religion was sent to Convocation House. 1583, pp. 2135-36.

Sir Robert Rochester

(1494? - 1557) [DNB]

Mary's Controller of the Household; privy councillor

Sir Robert Rochester was present at Gardiner's sermon, 30 September 1554 (1570, p. 1644; 1576, p. 1402; 1583, p. 1473).

He was present at the burning of John Rogers, 4 February 1555. 1570, p. 1664; 1576, p. 1420; 1583, p. 1493.

Rochester was one of the commissioners who interrogated Robert Ferrar on 4 February 1555. 1563, p. 1732; 1570, pp. 1722-23; 1576, p. 1471; 1583, pp. 1553-54.

On 28 March, Mary announced to Rochester and three other privy councillors that she was restoring the monastic lands in the crown's possession to the church. 1570, p. 1729; 1576, p. 1476; 1583, p. 1559.

Rochester stated that he did not know that Bradford had been in prison, but that he now knew that he was to be kept in prison 'without a cause'. 1563, p. 1186, 1570, p. 1783, 1576, p. 1523, 1583, p. 1605.

Bradford was brought to speak to Bonner by the under-marshal of the King's Bench. Talk took place between the lord chancellor, Bonner and John Bradford on 22 January 1555, during which the bishop of Durham, Sir Richard Southwell, Sir Robert Rochester, and Secretary Bourne questioned Bradford's eucharistic doctrine. 1563, pp. 1185-88, 1570, pp. 1782-84, 1576, pp. 1522-23, 1583, pp. 1605-06.

Commentary  *  Close

Rogers is referring to Stephen Gardiner's treatise De vera obedentia, which was first published in 1535 (STC 11584). This work argued for royal, rather than papal, supremacy of the English church. Marian Protestants frequently taunted Gardiner with his authorship of this work and, in fact, illicit protestant presses reprinted the work during Mary's reign (STC 11585-7).

and the Parliament hath so long agone condescended vnto it. And there he interrupted me thus.

[Back to Top]

L. Chan. Tush that Parlament was with most great crueltie constrained to abolish and put away the primacie frō the bishops of Rome.

Rog. With crueltie? Why then I perceyue that you take a wrong way with crueltie to perswade mens consciences. For it should appeare by your doyngs now, that the cruelty then vsed hath not perswaded your consciences. How would you then haue our consciences, perswaded wyth cruelty.

L. Chan. I talke to thee of no cruelty, but that they were so often & so cruelly called vpon in that Parlament, to let the Act go forward, yea and euen with force driuen thereunto, where as in this parliament it was so vniformly receiued, as is aforesayd.

Rog. Here my L. Paget told me more plainly, what my L. Chauncellor ment. Vnto whom I answered: My Lord what will ye conclude thereby? MarginaliaTruth goeth not by number nor by the greater part.that the first Parliament was of lesse authoritie, because but few condescended vnto it? and this last Parliament of great authoritye, because more condescended vnto it? It goeth not (my Lord) by the more or lesser part, but by the wyser, truer, & godlier part: and I would haue sayd more, but the L. Chauncellour interrupted me with his question, willyng me once agayne to aunswer him. For (sayde he) we haue mo to speake with thē thou, which must come in after thee. Marginalia10. Prisoners out of Newgate to be conuented before Gardiner.And so there were in deed ten persons moe out of Newgate, besides two that were not called. Of which ten, one was a citizen of London, which graunted vnto them, and ix. of the contrarye: which all came to prison agayne, and refused the cardinals blessing, and the authoritie of his holy fathers Church, Marginalia9. Of these prisoners refused the Popes auththoritye: the 10. yelded.sauyng that one of these ix. was not asked the question other wyse then thus, whether hee would be an honest man as his father was before hym, and aunswering yea, he was so discharged by the friendship of my Lord William Haward (as I haue vnderstanded): He bade me tell hym what I would doe: whether I would enter into one Church with the whole Realme as it is now, or not? No, sayd I, I will first see it prooued by the Scriptures. Let me haue pen, inke, and bookes. &c. And I shall take vpon me plainly to set out the matter, so that the contrary shall be prooued to be true, & let any man that wil, conferre with me by writyng.

MarginaliaSteph Gardiner refused to haue the truth to be tryed by learning.L. Chan. Nay, that shall not be permitted thee. Thou shalt neuer haue so much profered thee as thou hast now, if thou refuse it, and wilt not now condescend and agree to the catholike church. Here are ij. things, Mercy, and Iustice: If

thou refuse the Queenes mercy now, then shalt thou haue Iustice ministred vnto thee.

Rog. I neuer offended, nor was disobediēt vnto her grace, and yet I will not refuse her mercy. But if this shal be denied me to conferre by writing, and to try out the truth, then it is not wel, but to far out of the way. Ye your selues (all the Bishops of the Realme) brought me to the knowledge of the pretensed primacie of the Bishop of Rome, when I was a yong man twenty yeares past: and wil ye now without collation, haue me to say and do the contrary? MarginaliaThe Byshops neyther will stand by theyr assertion, nor yet will suffer other men so to doe.I cannot be so perswaded.

L. Chan. If thou wilt not receiue the Bishop of Rome to be supreme head of the Catholike Church, then thou shalt neuer haue her mercy thou maist be sure. And as touching conferring and triall, MarginaliaA fayre pretense to excuse your ignorance. I am forbidden by the Scriptures to vse any conferring and triall with thee. For S. Paule teacheth me that I shall shun and eschew an heretike after one or two monitions, knowing that such an one is ouerthrowen and is faulty, in as much as he is condemned by his owne iudgement.

Rog. My L. I deny that I am an heretike: prooue ye that first, and then alledge the foresayd text. But still the Lord Chancellor played on one string, saying.

L. Chan. If thou wilt enter into one Church with vs, &c. tell vs that, or els thou shalt neuer haue so much profered thee agayne, as thou hast now. MarginaliaGardiner wil compel to that, which he cānot teach to be true.

Rog. I will fynd it first in the Scripture, and see it tryed therby, before I receiue hym to be supreme head.

Wor. Why? do ye not know what is in your Creed: Credo ecclesiam sanctam catholicam. I beleeue the holy Catholike Church.

Rog. I fynde not the bishop of Rome there. For [Catholike] signifieth not the Romish Church: It signifieth the consent of all true teaching Churches of all tymes, and all ages. But how should the Bishop of Romes Church bee one of them which teacheth so many doctrines þt are plainly and directly against the word of God? Can that bishop be the true head of the Catholike Church that doth so? that is not possible. MarginaliaThe Popes church proued not to be Catholicke.
