Bp. of London from 1675. He was tutor to the princesses Mary and Anne, but his anti-Papal attitude brought him into disfavour with James II, and he was restrained from the exercise of his spiritual functions on the ground of his failure to suspend J. Sharp, then Rector of St Giles'-in-the-Fields, for his anti-Roman sermons. He officiated at the coronation of William III and supported the project for comprehension and the Toleration Act.
