Stephen Govier
John Daye was born in the parish of St Peter’s, Dunwich, Suffolk in 1522 and became apprenticed
to the printer and physician Thomas Raynalde in London. He went into partnership with William Seres, printing works by Robert Crowley the theologian. His Protestant literature pamphlets were anti-Catholic and in 1554 he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for printing ‘Naughty Books’. The inscription on his brass memorial at Little Bradley, Suffolk reads:
‘Heare lies the Daye that Darkness could not blynd when popish fogges had overcast the sunne’.
