Picture of the day
Henry Compton, Bishop of London

The Right Reverend Henry Compton (1632–1713) was the Bishop of London from 1675 until his death. During this time, he was also appointed a member of the Privy Council, and entrusted with the education of the two princesses – Mary and Anne. Compton was strongly opposed to Roman Catholicism. On the accession of the Catholic James II he lost his seat in the council and his deanery in the Chapel Royal. At the Glorious Revolution Compton embraced the cause of William and Mary, being one of the Immortal Seven who invited William to invade England. His son John travelled to Maryland, and from afar, Henry helped establish the Anglican Church in the colony.
