Scarce. William Sherlock was an English church leader. In 1686, he was reproved for his antipapal preaching and his controversy with the king's chaplain, Lewis Sabran; his pension was stopped. After the English Revolution, he was suspended for refusing the oaths to William III and Mary II, but before losing his position, he yielded, justifying his change of attitude.
