Thomas Goldwell

Bishop of Saint Asaph, Wales, last survivor of the ancient English hierarchy, born Kent, England, c.1501; died Rome, Italy, 1585. He was Cardinal Pole's secretary, and went into exile with him to Italy, in 1538. Nine years later he joined the Theatines, and under Queen Mary returned as Bishop of Saint Asaph; Mary's death frustrated his transfer to Oxford, and he went into exile again. He was the only English bishop present at the Council of Trent.
