Christ Church, Oxford, Oct. 26, 1660, 'archidiaconi fil' (archdeacon's son). Ordained deacon and priest, Peterborough, March 3, 1666-7. Rector of Hallaton, north mediety, Leicester, 1671 ; living 1688." In 1695 letters of administration were granted to Elizabeth Rives, "daughter of Richard Rives, clerk, lately rector of the parish church of
Hollough, co. Leicester." (Admn. Act Book, 1695, fol. 151).
