The Godly Household

  • Claire Cross


Although only twenty-three, Huntingdon was old for his years when the care of a great noble household fell to him and he took up his responsibilities with the greatest earnestness. His education had taught him, as it had been designed to impress upon Edward VI, the irresistible claims of duty, and his duty in 15 60 appeared quite clear; to advance God’s true religion, to serve the queen in whatsoever capacity he might be required and to provide for his father’s family. He waited for more than twelve years before he received high office in the state: in the meantime, being the man he was, he discovered that the reformed worship of God and the welfare of the Hastings family could be promoted side by side.
