In the last few years of his life Nicholas Glanvill seems to have had massive troubles financially. He lost a complete shipload of tin to the Dunkirk pirates, he lost big money with his venture in partly financing the second of the Roanoak Voyages to America in which he had three of his own ships participate. The cost of fitting out three ships for this voyage would have been enormous and he made very little profit from it …As per the court case that followed. His daughter was executed for murder. He cancelled his purchase of the Manor of Plymouth Radcliffe in Plymouth, and after he died his son John had to sell the Tavistock Mansion and a lot of his other property probably to cover debts and pay Dewnes her dowry.

Ulalia Page, Robert Prideaux, George Strangwidge and Thomas Stone were take to Barnstaple to the Assize for the March Quarter 1590/1 as plague was very high in Exeter....The Assize started there on Tuesday 16th March 1590/1 ... the Judge hearing the case was Lord Anderson....who had sentenced Mary Queen of Scots to death 2 years earlier....Sir John Glanvill was also at the Assize probably to represent Ulalia...
The Assize continued over the Wednesday Thursday and Friday and on the Saturday 18 prisoners were Executed...
There is no record to say how Ulalia was Executed but if she was implicated in the death of her husband she would have been charged with Petty Treason....and the punishment for this in those years was Burning at the Stake.
The bodies of Prideaux, Strangwidge, Stone and Ulalia were claimed after the execution and buried...The three men were buried on the 20th March 1590 in Barnstaple Church Yard...and Ulalia was buried in Bishops Tawton in the Churchyard.
Records show that two people George Strangwidge and Thomas Stone were arrested on the 9th of February 1590/1 the night of Stone's marriage celebration...his marriage can be found on the IGI in Plymouth to an Iset Saunders. on the 9th .....There is an entry in the Plymouth register for the burial of William Page on the 10th Feb 1590/1 so it would seem that William Page was murdered on the 8th ..there is no entry for the arrest of Ulalia Page or Robert Prideaux who were also involved in the murder.

The Tragedy of Page, of Plymouth.
The story runs that Judge Glanville, who resided near Tavistock, had a daughter named Ulalia, who became attached to a young man of Tavistock, named George Strangwidge, a lieutenant of a man of war, whose letters the father, disapproving of the attachment, intercepted. An old miser, of Plymouth, named Page, availed himself of this apparent neglect of the young sailor, and on settling a good jointure, obtained her father's good graces and her hand. She took with her a maid servant from Tavistock, but the husband was so penurious, that he dismissed all the other servants, and compelleed his wife and her maid to do all the work themselves. At this time George Strandwidge returned from sea, had an interview with Mrs Page, at which, after mutual upbraidings, they found that letters had been intercepted. The maid and the mistress then plotted to get rid of the old gentleman, to which Strangwidge with great reluctance consented. Page lived in Woolster Street, in Plymouth, and a woman who lived opposite hearing at night some sand thrown against a window, arose, and looking out, saw a young gentleman under Page's window and heard him say, "for God's sake stay your hand." A female voice replied, "'Tis too late, the deed is done." On the following morning it was given out that old Page had died suddenly in the night, and he was buried. On the testimony, however, of the neighbour, the body was disinterred, and it appearing that he had been strangled, his wife, the maid, and Strangwidge were arrested, tried, and executed; and it has since been commonly said that Judge Glanville, her own father, tried her, and pronounced her sentence (Mrs Bray's Traditions of Devonshire Vol 2 p 316). Philip Wyot not only confirms the truth of the legend, but incidentally proves that her father did not try or condemn her. It appears that owing to the plague being that year at Exeter, the assizes were held at Barnstable, and that but one Judge Lord Anderson came, who tried the prisoners, and he writes, "The gibbet was set up the Castle Green, and XVIII prisoners hanged, whereof III of Plymouth, for a murder." This execution is corroborated by our parish registers, which have entries of the names of "those who died in the assize week," "Ulalya Page". A number of Ballads founded on the event, are in the British Museum, entitled as follows: "The lament of Master Page's wife of Plymouth, who being enforced by her parents to wed him against her will, did most wickedly consent to his murder, for the love of George Strangwidge, for the fact she suffered death at Barnstaple. Written with her own hands, a little before her death." Another was entitled "Mr George Strangwidge's lament for consenting to Mr Page's death, for the love of Mrs Ulalia, Mr Page's wife". Another "the sorrowful complaint of Mistress Page for causing her husband to be murdered for the love of George Strangwidge, who were executed together at Barnstaple".

AN ALABASTER PALACE IN TUNISIA
...
Another English renegado "gentleman" (from Cornwall) was Ambrose Sayer. In 1613 Sayer was captain of an Algerian vessel which was captured at Sale by an English ship, whose captain decided to send the corsairs back to London to stand trial. Toby Glanville, one of Sayer's shipmates, realized the "game was up, made several attempts to commit suicide and eventually succeeded in throwing himself off the stern of the ship." Presumably, like most sailors, he'd never learned to swim. Captain Sayer was sent home and convicted of piracy, but somehow managed to escape-and presumably to retire, since we hear no more of him.

I have sent herewith the petition of Glanfield, the letter of Monsieur de Surdeac, and the petition of Waddam, father-in-law to Glanfield, endorsed and subscribed by my Lord Admiral and you. I have divers times moved her Majesty therein, but could never obtain other answer than this, that her Highness would reserve her answer till she had conferred with you thereabouts. If some present order be not taken therein, what is like then to ensue may partly be guessed at by Monsieur de Surdeac's letter. Myself and the other commissioners have been more importuned for this than any other cause. Mr. Secretary Herbert and Mr. Edmonds can more particularly inform you herein.—St. Catharins, 9 May, 1602.

He is the Governor of Brest, and Lieutenant-General ofBrittany. In the time of the late Queen Elizabeth he sustained great losses at sea through the actions of Captain Crofte and Toby Glanfield, and obtained a commission from the Lord Admiral of England to arrest them and confiscate their goods. He seized their ship, but this was employed in the Queen's service in Ireland and there lost, whereby he remained uncompensated for his losses. Later the King of France sent over the Count of Beaumont, now French Ambassador in London, and the Sieur de Boissize, and they, together with the Lord Admiral, Lord Cranborne, Sir Julius Caesar and other commissioners agreed that £900 due by the late Queen to the offenders should be paid to petitioner as compensation. But the Queen died before the award could be effected. By order from the King of France, the Count of Beaumont has moved King James to intervene, who has referred the matter to Cranborne. Petitioner requests that, since the affair has already lasted six years, some definite measure should be taken for his satisfaction.—1604.

He is an agent for Lord Sourdeac, Lieutenant of the French King in Brittany. Upon the presentation of the latter's suit to the King of England for £900 towards the indemnification of losses suffered by him at the hands of Captain Crofts and Captain Glanfield, the King referred it to the Privy Council. The Council conferred with the French Ambassador and agreed that the sum of £600 should be paid by the King. Petitioner expresses his gratitude for this favour, and requests a warrant for the payment of the money to him on behalf of Sourdeac.
On 4 January 1606 he was named (along with his brother)

(Signed) Josh GLANVILLE.
The following is a summary of the key points about his life...

1. Dates
Born: Plymouth, 1636
Died: Bath, 4 Nov. 1680
Dateinfo: Dates Certain
Lifespan: 44

2. Father
Occupation: Merchant

Glanvill was the third son of Nicholas Glanvill, a merchant in Plymouth.

No clear information on financial status. Glanvill went to Oxford as a battelar, a status above that of servitor, but I do not find this sufficient information for any judgment.

3. Nationality
Birth: English
Career: English
Death: English

4. Education
Schooling: Oxford, M.A.

Oxford University, Exeter College, 1652-6; B.A., 1655. Lincoln College, 1656-8; M.A., 1658.

5. Religion
Affiliation: Anglican

Glanville was reared in a strict Puritan household. Apparently student years at Oxford freed him from this. It is hard to be sure just how far Glanvill operated from principle and how far from expediency. At any rate, he was ordained in 1660 and became an articulate defender of Latitudinarian Anglicanism. It appears that he was an Anglican throughout his whole adult life; I do not list the Puritan phase.

6. Scientific Disciplines
Primary: Natural Philosophy
Subordinate: Natural History

Glanville made a couple of minor contributions to natural history, about the mines and medicinal springs near Bath, in response to general enquiries about natural history published in the Philosophical Transactions.
His major work was in such books as Vanity of Dogmatizing, 1660, Scepsis scientifica (a later version of Vanity), 1664, and Plus Ultra, 1668, all defenses of the new natural philosophy, especially of experimental philosophy, against its detractors.
Apparently all of his works are vocally hostile toward Scholastic philosophy. Scepsis closes with a "Letter to a Friend, concerning Aristotle," an articulate expression of the age's turning away from Aristotle.

Philosophia pia; or, A Discourse of the Religious Temper and Tendencies of the Experimental Philosophy, 1671.

7. Means of Support
Primary: Church Life
Secondary: Patronage

Glanvill was chaplain to Francis Rous, one of Cromwell's lords, 1658-9 (when Rouse died).

Rector of Wimbish, Essex, 1660-2.
Vicar of Frome Selwood, Somerstershire, 1662-72.
Rector of the Abbey Church at Bath, 1666-80. After 1666 Bath appears to have been Glanvill's seat. But note that he always held a second benefice at the same time.
Rector of the Streat and Walton, 1672-80. In 1672 he exchanged Frome Selwood for Streat and Walton.
Chaplain in ordinary to Charles II, 1672-80.
Received a prebend at Worcester, 1678.

8. Patronage
Types: Court Official, Aristrocrat, Gentry, Eccesiastic Official

Glanvill came from fairly modest beginnings, and he was clearly on the make. He was forward in introducing himself to prominent people such as Richard Baxter, Robert Boyle, and the Duchess of Newcastle. He was profuse in the use of dedications. When he died, he left a goodly inheritance.
Invited by Francis Rous, one of Cromwell's lords and provost of Eton College, to live with him as his chaplain, from 1658 until Rous' death in 1659.
His brother, a prosperous merchant purchased the rectory of Wimbish for him in 1660. Despite the obvious analogies with patronage, I will not list this.
He dedicated Vanity of Dogmatizing to Joseph Maynard, Fellow and later Rector of Exeter College. Their connection is unknown, and Maynard did not reappear in Glanvill's later life.
Presented to the vicarage of Frome Selwood in 1662 by Sir James Thynne, and later to Streat and Walton. I am not aware that he dedicated anything to Thynne.
He dedicated Lux orientalis, 1662, to Francis Willughby, Esq. I am pretty sure this is John Ray's patron.
He dedicated Scepsis scientifica to the Royal Society. Lord Breneton read the dedication to the society at the meeting of 7 December 1664 and proposed Glanville for membership at that time,
Dedicated Plus ultra, 1668, to William Pierce, Bishop of Bath and Wells.
Dedicated "An Account of the Nature of a Spirit" (part of A Blow at Modern Sadducism) to Charles, Duke of Richmond and Lennox.
Dedicated A Prefatory Anser to Mr. Henry Stubbe, 1671, to Francis Godolphin.
Dedicated Philosophia pia, 1671, to Seth Ward, Bishop of Salisbury.
Appointed chaplain in ordinary by Charles II, 1672.
Through the influence of the Marquis of Worcestor, to whom he was related by marriage, he received the prebend in Worcester. Glanville had dedicated books (Essays on Several Important Subjects, 1676, and a set of four sermons, 1678) to both the Marquis and the Marchioness shortly before this.

9. Technological Involvement
Type: None

10. Scientific Societies
Membership: Royal Society

Informal Connections: Frequent correspondence with Richard Baxter, Boyle and Henry More from 1661. With Henry More he formed a virtual association for psychical research. Successfully traced the important missing manuscripts of Samuel Foster.

Royal Society, 1664-80. Secretary of a Somerset affiliate established in 1669 (and I think stillborn almost immediately).
