Richard Thimelby

(Alias ASHBY)

Missionary priest, b. in Lincolnshire, England, 1614; d. at St. Omer's, Belgium, 7 Jan., 1672. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1632. Having taught philosophy and theology at Liège for about sixteen years, he was sent to England where he laboured for the most part in his native country. In 1666 he became Master of Novices at Ghent, and Rector of St. Omer's, Belgium, in 1672, where he remained until his death. His translation of Father Binet's "Treatise on Purgatory" was edited by Father Anderdon in 1874. He also wrote a controversial work entitled "Remarks on Stillingfleet" (London, 1672).
