Joseph Hall, bishop of Norwich, ordained him deacon: be never took priests orders, holding that he was properly ordained to the ministerial office. He was one of the clerks at the Westminster Assembly, one of Cromwells chaplains and a trier, and held livings at Stoke Newington (1645) and St Pauls, Covent Garden (1656). He disapproved of the execution of Charles I. In 1658 he assisted Baxter to draw up the Fundamentals of Religion. He helped to restore Charles II. and became one of his chaplains, refusing the deanery of Rochester. In 1662 he lost his living under the Act of Uniformity and preached in his own rooms and in other parts of London. For this he was arrested in 1670. (Encyclopedia Britannica 11th edition).
