Quick Reference

Thomas Long was born in Exeter and baptized on 14 December 1621. He died on 7 December 1707, also in Exeter, where he spent his whole life (save for his three years at College). In 1639 he entered Exeter College, Oxford, whence he graduated BA in 1642. He was evidently a Royalist and Church loyalist from the beginning, and he kept a low profile during the first part of the Interregnum, but in 1652 he was appointed vicar of a parish just outside Exeter. Then at the Restoration he was given an Oxford BD and made prebendary of Exeter Cathedral, a post which he kept for the next forty years. In 1684 he was offered the bishopric of Bristol, but he declined it, because of his age, he said, and because he had a large family to care for.
