Author: Hugh Broughton

Hugh Broughton (1549 - August 4, 1612) was an English scholar and theologian. He was educated by Bernard Gilpin at Houghton-le-Spring. He was sent to the University of Cambridge where he became a fellow of St John's College and then of Christ's College. Later he went from Cambridge to London, where his eloquence gained him many and powerful friends. He also did not stay here. In 1589 he moved to Germany. It is known that he there had many discussions with Jews and Catholics. He returned back to England in 1591. Soon confrontated with hostility because of his Puritan leanings he once more went abroad. On the accession of James he returned to England; but not being engaged to co-operate in the new translation of the Bible, he retired to Middleburg in Holland, where he preached to the English congregation. In 1611 he returned to England. He died on August 4, 1612.
