John Felton

Catholic lay priest and martyr. Father of Thomas Felton. A wealthy man, he lived at Bermondsey Abbey (the mansion built on the site) and supposedly fixed a copy of the papal bull excommunicating Queen Elizabeth I to the gate of the Bishop of London's residence (Fulham Palace) in 1570. He was condemned to die for maintaining the Pope to be head of the church and not the Queen. He was executed in St. Paul's Churchyard on 4th August 1570.
