‘Apostle of the North’. A great-nephew of C. Tunstall, he disapproved of the doctrinal changes under Edward VI. Tunstall made him Archdeacon of Durham, almost certainly in 1556, but his attacks on clerical corruption led to trouble with the Marian Church authorities. He was offered, but declined, preferment under Elizabeth I. He made long and successful missionary journeys in the North of England, collecting a large following, including some Puritans.
