(b Brabant, 1541–2; d London, 1592). English sculptor of Netherlandish origin. According to a document he was born in Bolnick, clearly a corruption of a place name as yet unidentified. He was a Protestant refugee who arrived in England in 1567 and settled in Southwark, London. He may be identifiable with the person of the same name who was affiliated to the Joiners’ Company of London and worked as a mason.
