Brian Duppa Religious Leader
Brian Duppa (Lewisham, Kent, 1588–1662) was an English bishop, a noted Royalist and adviser to Charles I of England. He was educated at Westminster School and Christchurch, Oxford, graduating B.A. in 1609. He was a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford in 1612, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford in 1632. He became chaplain to Edward Sackville, 4th Earl of Dorset, who as his patron helped him become Dean of Christchurch. He was chaplain to Charles I from 1634, and tutor to his two sons. He was regarded as a follower of William Laud. Duppa was made Bishop of Chichester (1638). During the Civil War period he lived quietly at Richmond, as Bishop of Salisbury from 1641, one the few Anglican bishops to remain undisturbed during the Interregnum. He was involved in the approval by Charles I of the manuscript of Eikon Basilike, reading it to the King in Carisbrooke Castle. In 1660, on the return from exile of Charles II of England, Duppa was made bishop of Winchester, and Lord Almoner. He was the editor of Jonsonus Virbius (1638), a collection of memorial verses for Ben Jonson.

1. Westminster School Independent school
The Royal College of St. Peter in Westminster, better known as Westminster School, is one of Britain's leading independent schools, with the highest Oxford and Cambridge acceptance rate of any secondary school or college in Britain. Standing in the precincts of Westminster Abbey in central London, and with a history stretching back to the 11th century, the school's notable alumni include Ben Jonson, Robert Hooke, Christopher Wren, John Locke, Jeremy Bentham, Edward Gibbon, Henry Mayhew, A. A. Milne, Tony Benn and seven Prime Ministers. The school traditionally encourages independent and individual thinking. Boys are admitted to the Under School at age seven, and to the senior school at age thirteen; girls are admitted only at sixteen. The school has around 750 pupils; around a quarter are boarders, most of whom go home at weekends, after Saturday morning school. It is one of the original nine British public schools as defined by the Public Schools Act 1868.
