13th. March Tuesday
John Wolton, or Woolton, Bishop of Exeter, and late warden of the Collegiate Church, died at Exeter, March 13. He was born at Wigan (others say Whalley) about 1535, “and was,” says Bishop Goodwin, who had married his daughter, “a pious, painful, and skilful divine.” His Christian Manual, 1576, was reprinted by the Parker Society in 1851. Another of his works is The Castell of Christians, 1577; New Anatomie of the Whole Man, 1576. (Wood’s Athen. Oxon., vol. i., p. 600; Sutton’s Lancashire Authors.)(7)
