Career: he was instituted to the parish of Coddington in March 1526, presented by St Werburgh’s Monastery in Chester. At the time of his appointment, he was described as ‘capellanus’ or chaplain, probably meaning that he was previously an unbeneficed priest. He remained rector of Coddington until his death some time before January 1559.

Further notes: Coddington was one of the poorest parishes in Cheshire, being valued in the Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1535 at £5 4s 1d.
