James Corker (1636-1715) converted to Roman Catholicism in his youth, and joined the English Benedictines at Lambspring in Hanover in 1656. Returning to England in 1665, he eventually became chaplain to Queen Catherine. Named by Titus Oates in the Popish Plot, Corker was imprisoned in Newgate until his acquittal in 1679. He was then reimprisoned, charged with high treason for accepting ordination as a Catholic priest, and condemned to death in 1680. Reprieved by Charles II, he was released from Newgate in 1685, founded two chapels, and received John Dryden, among others, into the Catholic church. Forced to flee England at the Revolution of 1688, Corker lived in exile for many years, eventually becoming Abbot of Lambspring. He returned to England in 1698, published two works of apologetics, and died at Paddington in 1715.
