Foxe's Book of Martyrs -- 423. ROBERT HORNEBY.


            I let pass, likewise, the dangerous escape of Robert Horneby, servant sometime and groom of the chamber to Lady Elizabeth, she being then in trouble in Queen Mary's days; who, being willed to come to mass, refused so to do, and therefore coming afterward from Woodstock to Hampton Court, was called before the council, and by them committed to the Marshalsea, and not unlike to have sustained further danger, had not the Lord's goodness better provided for him, who at length by Dr. Martin was delivered.
