1559
Thomas Herle, a native of Cornwall, chaplain to Queen Elizabeth, appointed warden. He was deprived in 1578, for mismanagement of the funds of the college. His alienations did not deprive him of the favour of the Queen, who granted him a pension upon his retirement. Thomas Herle is described as a subservient tool and a selfish man; who, indeed, if a Protestant, had always changed with the princes of these changeable times. He rarely visited Manchester, having a dispensation for his absence.(7)
