from: "THE VEN. ROWLAND TAYLOR, Archdeacon of Exeter, and chaplain to Archbishop Cramer, commonly known as Taylor the Martyr, b14_5, was burned for his defence of Protestantism at Hadleigh 8 Feb. 1554.

On page 12 it mentions a record during the trial of Rowland Taylor which indicates that he had 9 children. It mentions that five of his children were deceased and names them: Susan, George, Ellen, Robert and Zachary. It mentions that the trial record does not name the living children and goes on to try and identify the living children. It identifies the following living children: Thomas, Anne (who married William Palmer), Elizabeth and an unknown child which is said to maybe have been an adopted daughter, Elizabeth. No Edmund is mentioned (but theoretically, he could have been a 9th child).

Rowland and Margaret Tyndale Taylor were the parents of nine children:
1. Susan Taylor; b. ca. 1527; d. before 1555
2. George Taylor; b. ca. 1529; d. before 1555
3. Ellen Taylor; b. ca. 1531; d. before 1555
4. Robert Taylor; b. ca. 1533; d. before 1555
5. Zachary Taylor; b. ca. 1535; d. before 1555
6. Anne Taylor; b. ca. 1537; m. William Palmer
7. Mary Taylor; b. ca. 1539
8. Elizabeth Taylor; b. ca. 1541 (adopted)
9. Thomas Taylor; b. 15 Sep 1548; m. (1) Elizabeth Burwell, (2) _____
Rowland was born in Rothbury, England in 1509. He was educated at Cambridge as a Doctor of Civil and Canon Law. He lived in Hadleigh wherethe Catholic Bishop of Winshester burned him at the stake in 1555.(Although sometimes spelled the same, Hadleigh, east of London, shouldnot be confused with Hadley, northwest of Birmingham. Hadleigh was in theportion of Suffolk County that is now Essex County).
"The Taylor Family Directory" 2000/Third Millenium Edition - edited by Lynette and Bill Everson.
A stone marker lies still at the site of his burning that simply says (in Modern English) "1555: Dr. Taylor, in defending that which was good, at this place left his blood"
Rowland was educated at Cambridge as a Doctor of Civil and Canon Law. He lived in Hadleigh where the Catholic Bishop of Winchester burned him atthe stake in 1555. (Although sometimes spelled the same, Hadleigh shouldnot be confused with Hadley, northwest of Birmingham). James Taylor I wasa lawyer from Carlisle when he emigrated to the American Colonies.William Taylor, the brother of James I, died from wounds received in theBattle of Naseby in the English Civil War. Source: The Taylor Family Ancestry, May 1997, Edited by William F. Everson, Sr.
Contributed by William Arthur Taylor on July 27, 1999: Dr. Rowland Taylor was beaten and burned at the stake in Hadleigh, England 9 Feb 1555 for his religious beliefs. LDS data shows Rowland Taylor had more than one wife. His mother was Susan Data Rowland. His father was John Taylor. Children: (1) Susan b. 1535; (2) Ellen b. 1537; (3) Robert b. 1543; (4) Zachary b. 1545 (5) George b. 1546; (6) Thomas b. 1548.
The Life and Family of Rowland Taylor, L.L.D. In his book, The Life of Rowland Taylor, Rev. William James Brown said the Taylor name was not common in England at the time of Dr. RowlandTaylor. It has been established by many sources that Taylors were in England from the time of William the Conquoror 1066, being decendants of Baron William Taillerfer, who accompanied the King of England and died inthe Battle of Hastings. For his heroic deeds in battle William Taillerfer and his brother, Foulques, also in battle, received large lands andestates in County Kent, England. The name Taillerfer changed over the years so by 1400 it was Tailor or Taylor.
From the 1911 Edition Encycopedia: TAYLOR, ROWLAND (d. 1555), English Protestant martyr, was born at Rothbury, Northumberland; he took minor orders at Norwich in 1528 and graduated LL.B. at Cambridge in 1530 and LL.D. in 1534. Adopting reformed views he was made chaplain by Cranmer in 1540 and presented to the living of Hadleigh, Suffolk, in 1544. In Whitsun week, 1547, he preached a "notable sermon " at St Paul's Cross, and was given the third stall in Rochester cathedral. In 1549 he was placed on a commission to examineAnabaptists, and in 1551 he was appointed chancellor to Bishop Ridley, select preacher at Canterbury, and a commissioner for the reform of the canon law; in 1552 Coverdale made him archdeacon of Exeter. Apparently he advocated the cause of Lady Jane Grey, for on the 25th of July 1553, only six days after Mary's proclamation as queen, he was committed to the custody of the sheriff of Essex. He was released not long afterwards, and with the support of his parishioners offered strenuous resistance to the restoration of the Mass. He was consequently imprisoned in the King's Bench prison on the 26th of March 1554. The sturdy protestantism of Taylor and his flock, who seem to have caused various commotions, marked him out for the special enmity of Mary's government; and he was one of the first to suffer when in January 1555 parliament had once more given the clerical courts liberty of jurisdiction. He was sentenced.
Dr. Rowland Taylor was educated at Cambridge University where he specialized in ecclesiastical and civil law. He received an LL.B degreein 1530 and an LL.D in 1534.
In 1544 he was appointed Rector of Hadleighin County Suffolk at a time when England was still in religious turmoil over Henry VIII's break with the Church of Rome. Dr. Taylor was enthusiastic in support of the Protestant cause. He was active in support of the Church of England, serving as a member of many church bodies such as a commission for the reformation of ecclesiastical laws.
Following Henry's death in 1547, his sickly, only son held the throne until his death in 1553. Then his daughter Mary Tudor, a fervent Catholic, succeeded to the throne and set about restoring Catholicism to England. Rowland Taylor, by his active opposition to the Catholic church, must have made himself peculiarly obnoxious to Mary for he was arrested by the sheriff of Essex on July 25, 1553, only six days after her proclamation as Queen. He was later released and allowed to resume his ministry at Hadleigh. Perhaps the final breaking point came when he strenuously objected to a Catholic priest performing mass in his church. On March 26, 1554, he was again arrested and sent to up to London where he was imprisoned in the king's bench. The following January he was condemned to death, excommunicated and sent back to Hadleigh. On February 9, 1555, he was burned at the stake on Aldham Common outside Hadleigh where there is a stone memorial to commemorate the event. Another memorial to his martyrdom is a stall in the choir of the Cathedral at Bury St. Edmunds. The "Dictionary of National Biography" related that"Taylor was a man of ability and learning .. the beau-ideal of a parish priest, and his unblemished and attractive character has made him one of the most famous of the martyrs who suffered in Mary's reign. He is commemorated in many popular poems."
Dr. Taylor and his wife, Margaret, had nine children, four of whom survived him. He is buried in the Hadleigh Cemetery.
