Referenced by: WingSTC A3148 . ** Andrewes, Lancelot, 1555-1626 Born in Barking, he was the son of Thomas Andrewes, the son of a mariner and master of Trinity House. He began his education at the Merchant Taylors' School. From there he went to Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, earning a fellowship in 1576, and taking orders in 1580. Andrewes' fluency in 15 languages, including Hebrew, Latin, and Greek, contributed to the universal respect his work enjoyed among his contemporaries. His ability was recognised when in 1604 James I selected him to be one of fifty-four scholars to translate the Bible into English, producing the 'Authorized Version' or 'King James Bible'. Although there is no definite record of which passages Andrewes worked on, it is known that he was in the group of scholars responsible for much of the Pentateuch and the historical books. It was only after Andrewes' death in 1626 , that the powerful quality of his sermons and other works were recognised and published. Andrews died a bachelor and was buried in St Saviour’s church in Southwark.
