Finglow, JOHN, VENERABLE, English martyr; b. at Barnby, near Howden, Yorkshire; executed at York, August 8, 1586. He was ordained priest at the English College, Reims, March 25, 1581, whence the following month he was sent on the English mission. After laboring for some time in the north of England, he was seized and confined in Ousebridge Kidcote, York, where for a time he endured serious discomforts, alleviated slightly by a fellow-prisoner. He was finally tried for being a Catholic priest and reconciling English subjects to the ancient Faith, and condemned to be hanged, drawn, and quartered.
