Bagshawe, received his brief to the See of Nottingham, Dec. 16, 1901.

BRITTON, William, son of Dionysius Britton, of London; admitted July 4, 1633; left July 8, 1635. He may possibly be indentified with the Father William Britton, who, according to a report of the Jesuit Irish Mission, 1641-50, was serving in the Residence of Cashel, and had been cruelly handled in the church there by a mob of heretics.

BROCKHOLES, Roger, third son of Thomas Brockholes, of Claughton Hall, co. Lancaster, Esq., by Mary dau. and heiress of John Holden, of Chaighley Manor, in the same county, Esq., was sent to Douay College, where he took the oath Aug. 15, 1678. Having completed his course of theology, he came to Lisbon, admitted June 15, 1683, alumnus Jan. 15, 1684; ord. priest; taught classics for three years; appointed professor of philosophy Apr. 3, 1687, prof, of theology Jan. 1690, and prefect of studies Sept. 5, 1692; left for English mission June 29, 1695, and appointed senior confessor at York Bar Convent, where he died in 1700.

BROMWICH, Andrew, born in Shropshire, a member of an ancient family, admitted Jan, 10, 1668, alumnus Jan. 9, 1672; ord. priest; apprehended almost immediately upon his arrival in England, one of the victims of the Oates Plot of 1678, and committed to Stafford Gaol, tried at the county assizes, Aug. 13, 1679, before Lord Chief Justice Scroggs. The official report of the trial, printed by appointment of Scroggs, reads more like a burlesque than anything else. It seems that Mr. Bromwich resided at Perry Barr, parish of Handsworth, co. Stafford, and that he came over to England in 1678. It was asserted that he had said Mass at The Hay, near Madeley, co. Salop,
