Biographical Sketch

"Born at Marton in Shropshire [England], Bray went from grammar School to Oxford and was ordained [Church of England] on graduation. After a short curacy he became domestic chaplain to Sir Thomas Price in Warwickshire, who gave Bray the living of Marston Lee, where...he noted the poverty of the country parson preventing him purchasing relevant books to meet the demands of his work."
