      Harpsfield, John, D.D., born in Old Fish Street, in the parish of St. Mary Magdalen, London, was the grandson of Nicholas Harpsfield, Esq. This gentleman in 1472 was in the custody of Bishop Wayneflete, and detained in the episcopal prison of Wolvesey Castle, having been indicted and convicted of homicide, and subsequently claimed from the king's prison as a clerk by the bishop, in accordance with the ecclesiastical laws, as entitled to the benefit of clergy. The offence was committed at Windsor Castle on Aug. 21, 1471, and the bishop's com mission for his purgation and delivery from Wolvesey prison is dated Aug. 29, 1472, so that he probably obtained his release before the close of the year.

      John Harpsfield studied his classics with his younger brother Nicholas, at Winchester School. Thence removing to New College, Oxford, he was made a fellow in 1534, and completed his degrees in arts. Afterwards he was appointed chaplain to- Dr. Bonner, Bishop of London, and being inducted into a good
      benefice in that diocese, resigned his fellowship about I 5 5 x In the beginning of Mary's reign, having been created D.D., he was promoted to the archdeaconry of London, about 1554, in the place of John Wymsley. In 1558, shortly before the queen's death, he was made dean of Christ Church, Norwich, the former dean, John Boxall, having other duties to- perform.

      When Elizabeth ascended the throne Dr. Harpsfield was obliged to resign his deanery to John Salisbury, suffragan of Thetford, in 1560. He was then committed prisoner to the Fleet, where he remained about a year, when he was discharged upon finding surety that he should not act, speak, or write against the established church. The remainder of his life was spent in great retirement and devotion in the house of one of his relations in St. Sepulchre's parish, where he died, Aug. 19, 1578. He was buried in the parish church, as appears from the letters of administration taken out by his nearest relative, Anne Worsopp. It was probably at this lady's house that he resided. She was the widow of John Worsopp, gent, and daughter of Richard Baron, Esq., citizen and mercer of London, by his wife, Alice Harpsfield. This Baron's father, Peter, of Saffron Walden, co. Essex, was a serjeant-at-law, and was drowned in the Thames.
      Fox charges Dr. Harpsfield with persecution, but it must be remembered that he was obliged to carry out the measures against the so-called reformers by virtue of his office. There is no record that he exceeded the commands of the Council, or that he infused animosity into their execution. Wood, Athena Oxon., ed. 1691, vol. i. ; Dodd, Cli. Hist., vol. ii. ; Maitland, Reformation; Tablet, vol. xlvii. p. 536; Harl. Soc., Visit, of Lond., 1568.
