 Britannia Biographies: George Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury
George Abbot was born in 1562 in Guildford in Surrey, where he was educated before entering Balliol College, Oxford.
He could act with great firmness when he felt conscientiously obliged to follow a difficult course, as in the case of Lady Essex's divorce, yet he was strangely unwilling to allow for other's liberty of conscience and he sought to suppress opinions which he disliked by measures of excessive harshness.
It was clear that the Archbishop was in no way to blame for the accident, but it afforded his enemies a fresh ground of attack and it cast a cloud over his latter years.

That year, Laud and George Abbot, both future archbishops of the English Church, had disagreed over the "hidden" proto-protestant line of descent that Abbot then identified as one of the Church's possible origins.
And later, when Abbot returned to this proto-protestant line of descent in his Treatise of the Perpetuall Visibilitie (1624), Laud characterized it as "dangerous to the Church."[32] He determined to replace Foxe's notion of "relative invisibility" with the visible episcopal succession of the orthodox national church.[33]
Milton notes that Ussher's argument is in keeping with that of John Prideaux and Archbishop George Abbot, who similarly argued that the true Church was visible in the Greek churches and would have continued in time if neither the Protestant Churches nor the Church of Rome had ever come into being.
