Nephew of the powerful cardinal John Morton. Appointed master of the chancery rolls by Edward IV in 1479, he lost both the office and his church revenues under Richard III. He was present at the battle of Bosworth Field (1485) and a steward at the coronation of Henry VII, who reinstated him as master. In 1487 he was consecrated bishop of Worcester.
