John Best (bishop)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Best (died 1570) was Bishop of Carlisle from 1560[1] until his death.[2]


He was from Halifax and attended King Henry VIII's College from 1538 to 1539.

Personal life and career

In 1550 he married Elizabeth Somner. In 1553 Best was canon of Wells and in 1559 he was made Rector of Romaldkirk. He was consecrated Bishop of Carlisle[3] on 2 March 1561, after the previous Bishop had been deprived of his see, after performing Elizabeth I's coronation in Roman Catholic liturgy despite Elizabeth's Protestant faith.


Best died in 1570, nine years after being consecrated Bishop of Carlisle.
