After attending St John's College, Cambridge from 1595 he became lecturer at Holy Trinity Church, Cambridge, from 1610 to 1616. He was then preacher at Gray's Inn, London, from 1617, returning to Cambridge as Master of Catherine Hall in 1626, without giving up the London position. He adhered to Calvinist covenant theology, as shaped by the English theologians Perkins, Preston, William Ames, and Thomas Taylor. He wrote and published several devotional works during his lifetime, others were not published until after his death. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.
