Dr Thomas Holland

This is the biography of my 11th Great-Grandad, Dr Thomas Holland. A minor celebrity of his day, Thomas served as chaplain to Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester; Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford for both Queen Elizabeth I and King James I; and most notably was one of the many who translated the King James Bible.
