Paley Frederick Apthorp
Paley, Frederick Apthorp, LL.D.. was born near York in 1816, and, after being educated at Shrewsbury and St. John's College, Cambridge, resided for some time at the university. In 1846 his conversion to Romanism gave a check to his college career, and until 1860 he was engaged in private tuition, which he pursued after his return to Cambridge until 1874, when he was appointed classical professor in the Roman Catholic College established under Monsignor Capel's auspices in London, and examiner in the London University. The great work of his life was textual criticism, which he applied to AEschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Theocritus, Propertius, Hesiod, Martial, and parts of Homer and Aristophanes. He died in 1886.
