Nonjuror. On the accession of George I (1714) he resigned his living; he was received as a Nonjuror by G. Hickes, after whose death he was consecrated bishop in 1716. He took part in the abortive negotiations for reunion of his party with the Greek Church and he was involved in the controversy over Usages. His Dissertation on the Ancient Liturgies (1720) is still of some value.
