John Bradford

1510 - 1555

John Bradford (1510-1555) was a prebendary of St. Paul’s. He was an English Reformer and martyr best remembered for his utterance “‘There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford”. These words were uttered by Bradford while imprisoned in the Tower of London when he saw a criminal on his way to execution; however, the attribution has been questioned. Bradford was in the Tower of London for alleged crimes against Mary Tudor for his Protestant faith.
