⁂ An argument against Nicholas Sander's De visibili monarchia, the divine establishment of papal monarchy.
Rev Thomas Baker (1656-1740), antiquary, of the county of Durham; rector of Long Newton which he resigned from motives of conscience in 1690; a fellow of St John's College, Cambridge from which he was ejected in 1717, for political contumacy. He retained a lively resentment of this and his other deprivations, and wrote in all his books, "socius ejectus", or "ejectus rector." He resided in college, as commoner, until his death in 1740.
