Who was Rev. Thomas Cooper, executed 25th December 1649

See article by K. E. Jermy, "Colonel Robert Jermy, M.P.," Norfolk Ancestor 6, pt 10 (1993):328-334, reprinted as web content ("with permission of the author"); [Jermy.org.

"... the Rev. Thomas Cooper, schoolmaster at Holt, and William Hobart. Both, being connected with Holt would have been known personally to Jermy, and doubtless his zeal sealed both their fates. Cooper had been appointed Rector of Little Barningham in 1631, and presumably lost the living because of his political views. In 1634 he was an usher at Gresham's School, Holt, and seems to have held this post until his death. He was tried on Christmas Day; apparently young Hobart testified against him on promise of leniency. Cooper was convicted and executed, it is thought outside his own school door."

For Thomas Cooper made rector at Little Barningham in 1631, see Norfolk Catalogue.
