"Presbyterian minister. Son of a London solicitor, he was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and later became a fellow of New College, Oxford. In 1655 he was appointed chaplain to Henry Cromwell, governor of Ireland, and won a reputation for preaching in Dublin. From 1675 he ministered in a London Presbyterian church [with Thomas Watson]. His sermons were published mostly after his death; they reflect the characteristic Puritan divine's concern for central Gospel themes; the most important work was entitled Existence and Attributes of God [various]." (NIDCC)
