John Foxe (1516–1587) was an English historian and martyrologist. In 1531, he joined the Reformers and acted as tutor to the children of the recently beheaded Earl of Surrey. He was educated at Brasnose College, Oxford, in 1532 and became a probationer fellow of Magdalen College in 1538. In 1545, Foxe resigned his fellowship at the University because of Protestant beliefs and became a tutor for the Lucy family in Warwickshire. He was ordained deacon by Bishop Nicholas Ridley in 1550 and became the first to preach Protestantism at Reigate in 1551. In 1553, when Mary I becomes Queen of England, he flees to the Continent and then returns to England in 1559. He was ordained by Grindal, bishop of London, as an Anglican priest in 1560. Foxe died at the age of 71 and was interred at St. Giles, Cripplegate, in 1587.
