Bancroft, Richard

(1544–1610)
   Archbishop and Theologian.
   Bancroft was educated at the University of Cambridge. He rose rapidly in the Church, becoming Canon of Westminster in 1587, Bishop of London in 1597 and Archbishop of Canterbury in 1604. He is remembered for his determined opposition to both Puritanism and Presbyterianism: the failure of the Hampton Court Conference of 1604 was largely the result of his unwillingness to compromise. He was also responsible for the re-establishment of episcopacy in Scotland.
   Tracts ascribed to Richard Bancroft, A. Peel (ed.) (1953);
   S.B. Babbage, Puritanism and Richard Bancroft (1962).
