Father Henry Walpole: the Jesuit Martyr
Saint Henry Walpole, 1558-1595. Acted as chaplain to the Spanish forces in the Netherlands, a year after the Invincible Armada had been repulsed, in 1589. Sent on a mission to preach Roman Catholicism, with his brother, also a priest, to England in 1590. His brother Thomas, who accompanied him, "was not of the stuff that martyrs are made of" and upon being arrested, Thomas told all that he knew. Several other Roman priests were arrested, and recanted. In February 1591 Henry was sent to the Tower of London, where he was severely tortured. In the spring of 1595 he was sent to York for trial, where he was hanged, drawn and quartered on 7 April.
Three of Henry Walpole's other brothers, Richard, Christopher and Michael, had also become Jesuits. They escaped arrest. In all, six Walpoles appear to heve been Jesuit priests.
