John Fell
Birth: Jun. 25, 1625
Death: Jul. 10, 1686

Bishop of Oxford and Dean of Christ Church. His legendary strictness made him unpopular and he is the original of the nursery rhyme:'I do not love thee, Dr. Fell / The reason why I cannot tell;/ But this I know, and know full well, /I do not love thee, Dr. Fell.' (bio by: David Conway)
