The next son [of Bishop Edmund Law] John, educated at the same school [Charterhouse], on the foundation, was entered of Christ's College, in the same University, where he was a Tancred exhibitioner, and afterwards fellow. Having taken his degrees, and holy orders, he attended the Duke of Portland, lord lieutenant of Ireland, as one of his chaplains; where he was first promoted to the bishoprick of Clonfert, and thence translated to the see of Elphin; which he now enjoys.
