Schoolmaster and university teacher

Henry Langley was born in 1610, the son of an Abingdon shoemaker. He attended Abingdon School, and matriculated at Pembroke College in 1629. Pembroke, then newly founded, had close connections with the school. Langley took his BA degree in 1632, and remained in Oxford as a preacher and college tutor. But, as a fervent Puritan, he was opposed to the religiously conservative views prevalent in the university.
