HISTORY >

We have a 400-year strong history of charitable giving and continue to play an important role today.

Thomas Edwards was born about 1554 in Berkshire. He entered All Souls College, Oxford in 1581 and became a Doctor of Civil Law in 1590. In the next year he was made a prebendary of St Paul’s Cathedral and subsequently became chancellor to the Bishop of London. He was a benefactor of the Bodleian and Christ Church libraries in Oxford.

 

At the time of his death he was living in Fulham.

He was educated at Westminster School and Christ Church College, Oxford. After taking holy orders he became successively chaplain to the Archbishop of York, to the Keeper of the Great Seal and, in 1601, to Queen Elizabeth. He preached before James 1 when the latter entered London and remained one of the royal chaplains until 1611, when he was installed as Bishop of London. He died on Good Friday 1621.
