Protestant martyr. He was believed to have been a Baptist, which was rather dangerous in the reign of Mary I. Whilst returning from a visit to Maidstone, he was stopped by Edmund Tyrell, a justice of the peace and a zealous hunter of heretics. Denley was searched and was found to be carrying a personal statement of his faith. He was arrested, sent for trial in London and subsequently burnt at the stake in Uxbridge.
