About Edmund Cranmer

Edmund Cranmer, Archdeacon of Canterbury and Rector of Hackington.

Edmund CRANMER was born in 1491 in Aslocton, England.

He died before 20 Apr 1571 in Germany or Holland.

He was an Archdeacon of Canterberry. Educated at Cambridge, he became Archdeacon, 9 MAR 1534-5, as well as Provost of Wingham College and the rectories of Cliff and Ickham in Kent.

Upon the ascent of Queen Mary to the throne and the imprisonment of his brother Thomas, he fled to Germany and later to Rotterdam. He was deprived of his benefits. He may have returned to England later and possibly fathered a late child there. Robert Waters says that there possibly were other children. He graduated BA in 1513 and MA in 1520 and then entered the holy orders, but did not become a priest.
