(d. 1704),

RC controversialist. Of a Presbyterian family, he became a RC and in 1668 entered the English College at Lisbon. He was sent to England in 1682. In 1685 he published the first part of A Papist Misrepresented and Represented, the second and third parts following in 1687. It evoked many replies. His translation of the Roman Missal (published in 1718) was apparently the first English version of the complete text.
