Dr Rowland Taylor
Birth: Oct. 6, 1510
Northumberland, England
Death: Feb. 9, 1555
Suffolk, England

Rowland Taylor was influential in the religious reformation of England during the reign of Queen Mary I. At the time of his death he was rector of a small church in Hadleigh, England. The English Parliament banned the William Tyndale English Bible in 1543. During this time, many people who opposed the Catholic church teachings were put to death. Taylor opposed several Catholic teachings, including celibacy of a priest and the way the church practiced Holy Communion. On March 26, 1554 he was arrested for hersey because he was spreading the word of God in public. He was burned at the stake on February 09, 1555. Before being burned at the stake, he was killed by having his skull bashed.

He was the son of John Taylor & Susan Rowland Taylor.

Husband of Margaret Tyndale Taylor
