Lunchtime Lecture – John Daye: Infamous and notorious protestant printer

John Daye was born in the parish of St Peter’s, Dunwich, Suffolk in 1522 and became apprenticed to the printer and physician Thomas Raynalde in London. He went into partnership with William Seres, printing works by Robert Crowley the theologian. His Protestant literature pamphlets were anti-Catholic and in 1554 he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for printing ‘Naughty Books’. The inscription on his brass memorial at Little Bradley, Suffolk reads ‘Heare lies the Daye that Darkness could not blynd when popish fogges had overcast the sunne’. Admission is free with a retiring collection to defray expenses. Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series. Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
