Juxon, William (1582-1663), Archbishop of Canterbury, was born at Chichester and educated at Merchant Taylors' and St. John's College, Oxford, of which he became president in 1621. He had previously held the benefices of St. Giles, Oxford, and Somerton in the same county. He became successively Dean of Worcester, Bishop of Hereford, and Primate, this last after the restoration. In 1641 he resigned the office of Lord High Treasurer, which he had held for six years with credit if not with distinction. He was with Charles I. at his execution, and is perhaps best known to posterity as having been addressed with the mysterious "Remember!" by that unfortunate sovereign. He owed his rise to the friendship of Laud.
