Aylmer, John, born in Norfolk in 1521, was chosen as tutor to Lady Jane Grey and made Archdeacon of Stow, but on Mary's accession had to fly to Zurich. He returned as Archdeacon of Lincoln in Elizabeth's reign, sat in the Synod of London, and was appointed Bishop of London in 1576. He persecuted Papist and Puritan with impartiality, and earned the cordial detestation of the reformers. Spenser satirised him in the Shepherd's Calendar. He died in 1594.
