Christopher Wren (priest)
He married Mary Cox, and his son was the architect Christopher Wren.
He was appointed:
- Chaplain to Bishop Lancelot Andrewes
- Chaplain to King Charles I
- Rector of Fonthill, Wiltshire 1620
- Rector of East Knoyle 1623
- Dean of Wolverhampton 1639
- Rector of Great Haseley 1639
He was appointed Dean of Windsor in 1635. When Parliamentary forces occupied Windsor Castle, he refused to give the keys of the Chapel to Captain Fogg. Captain Fogg broke open the treasury and plundered it. Wren managed to preserve the records of the Order of the Garter, and King Edward III’s sword.
