British Calvinists: Arthur Hildersham (1563-1632)

Arthur Hildersham (1563-1632) was born in Stetchworth and graduated from Christ's College, Cambridge. He was the vicar of St Helen's, Asby-de-la-Zouch. 

He was one of the key Puritans behind the Milenary Petition presented to James I in 1603 which protested against the state of the Anglican church. It was supported by around 1000 Puritans. The petition led to the Hampton Court Conference. Hildersham was prevented from attending the conference. 

A biography of Hildersham has been recently published: The Life and Times of Authur Hilderham: Prince Among Puritans
