    Layman, martyred at York, 4 July, 1597, pronounced Venerable in 1886. His acts are thus related by Challoner:
    A certain Protestant (Protestantism) minister, for some misdemeanour put into York Castle, to reinstate himself in the favour of his superiors, insinuated himself into the good opinion of the Catholic prisoners, by pretending a deep sense of repentance, and a great desire of embracing the Catholic truth ... So they directed him, after he was enlarged, to Mr. Henry Abbot, a zealous convert who lived in Holden in the same country, to procure a priest to reconcile him ... Mr. Abbot carried him to Carlton to the house of Esquire Stapleton, but did not succeed in finding a priest. Soon after, the traitor having got enough to put them all in danger of the law, accused them to the magistrates ... They confessed that they had explained to him the Catholic Faith, and upon this they were all found guilty and sentenced to die.
    The others, Errington, Knight, and Gibson, were executed on 29 November, 1596; Abbot was reprieved till the next July.
