    [GOODEN, Peter]

He spent the end of Charles's reign at Aldcliffe Hall and set up a school here.…

He spent the end of Charles's reign at Aldcliffe Hall and set up a school here. Under James II he was made chaplain to the Duke of Berwick's Regiment, but after the revolution he returned to Aldcliffe. He had frequent conferences with Anglicans. 'No man', says Dodd, 'was better qualified to come off with reputation in a personal conference' as 'he was naturally bold and intrepid, had a strong voice, a ready utterance, and generally made choice of such topics as afforded him matter to display his eloquence.' (DNB). [1] - 40 pp. WING G1099
