This all needs updating in light of contemporary scholarship to revise the old Britannica narrative which is based on the idea that there was an "elizabethan settlement" and factions easily grouped as right, left, and center. Dan Knauss 15:30, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

Bishop of Bedford[edit]

The article refers to John Hodgkins, Bishop of Bedford. But to the best of my knowledge, there has never been a Bishop of Bedford. Millbanks (talk) 11:14, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

There is indeed. --Secisek (talk) 10:49, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Nosey Parker wasn't an Archbishop[edit]

The current section entitled "Nosey Parker" is unjustifiable and erroneous. The OED online cites the first appearance of this phrase from the early 20th century, "from the postcard caption ‘The Adventures of Nosey Parker’, referring to a peeping Tom in Hyde Park." It is extremely unlikely that the phrase would have arisen from Parker's own behavior in the 16th century and I cannot find this cited anywhere other than the Book of Lists cited in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:13, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
