James was reconciled to the Church in Framlingham prison by a priest named Robt. Woodroffe, one of the Woodroffes of Bank Top, near Burnley, who were allied with the Hargreaves family. He went to Douay College, matriculated in the Douay University in 1602, and proceeded to the English College at Rome, where he was admitted Oct. 6, 1603, and received minor orders in Aug. and Nov., 1604.
