Other NoteThe exact date of birth of Isaac Bargrave is unknown. He was baptised on 12 June 1586 at Bridge, Kent. He graduated B.A. from Pembroke College, Cambridge in 1607, proceeding M.A. from Clare College in 1610. He was ordained deacon and priest on 10 May 1612. He was instituted to the rectory of Eythorne, Kent in October 1612, and was to hold this living for the rest of his life. In 1622, Bargrave was admitted at Lincoln's Inn, awarded the degree of D.D., and became rector of St Margaret's, Westminster and canon of Canterbury. In addition, he served as chaplain to Prince Charles. Isaac Bargrave became dean of Canterbury on 16 October 1625. His other livings, bestowed in the late 1620s, included Tenterden, Lydd and Chartham (all in Kent). During his lifetime, he published three sermons; his final publication (A sermon preached before King Charles (London, 1627)) was printed by royal command. Bargrave fell out of favour during the English Civil Wars, and was imprisoned for three weeks, having been arrested by Colonel Edwyn Sandys. Bargrave was buried on 25 January 1643.
