|Death: ||Dec. 23, 1558|
Greater London, England
Knight of Sissinghurst, Recorder of London, Attorney General, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Privy Councellor under Henry VIII, Edward VI and Queen Mary.
"Lore has it that he was called "Bloody Baker" because he killed so many Protestants and heresy burnings in his diocese where he was Justice of the Peace were higher than any other in England. But he probably received the name because of his close association with Queen "Bloody" Mary who ordered many Protestants burned at the stake across England in they did not once again accept the Catholic religion."

A 13th paternal Great Grandfather. Perhaps as a Protestant maybe not my favorite Grandfather. But the past cannot be changed, the family heritage is what it is.|
