  Nicholas Ridley - LoveToKnow 1911
The second son of Christopher Ridley of Unthank Hall, near Willemoteswick, in that county, he was born in the beginning of the 16th century.
In 1547 Ridley was presented by his college to the Cambridgeshire living of Soham, and in September of the same year he was nominated bishop of Rochester.
Having signed the letters patent settling the English crown on Lady Jane Grey, Ridley, in a sermon preached at St Paul's cross on the 9th of July 1553, affirmed that the princesses Mary and Elizabeth were illegitimate and that the succession of the former would be disastrous to the religious interests of England.

 Diocese of London - Bishop's Address: 450th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Nicholas Ridley
Ridley said in relation to the bread and the wine that “unto this material substance is given the property of the thing whereof it beareth the name”.
Ridley’s view of the sacrament as far as he was able to develop it in the press of his busy years as a bishop and the circumstances of his imprisonment is not so very different from the Agreement on Eucharistic Doctrine which emerged from the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission meeting at Windsor in 1971.
Ridley’s legacy was of course disputed and both parties in the later sixteenth century Church of England, conformist and would be non- conformist in the very different circumstances of Elizabeth’s reign, appealed to his example.

 October 16: Ridley and Latimer martyred
The scholar Nicholas Ridley had been a chaplain to King Henry VIII and was Bishop of London under his son Edward.
When Ridley was asked if he believed the pope was heir to the authority of Peter as the foundation of the Church, he replied that the church was not built on any man but on the truth Peter confessed -- that Christ was the Son of God.
Ridley said he could not honor the pope in Rome since the papacy was seeking its own glory, not the glory of God.

Seeing Henry's unsuccessful attempt to free himself to pro­duce an heir, Cranmer suggested to Henry that he might consult the universities who in turn might be able to find grounds in canon law for the divorce.
During Henry's life, the most radical move Cranmer made was to encourage the distribution of the Bible in English, not an insignificant contribution, mind you, but not enough to get him in trouble with his "boss," as it were.
Ridley distributed his garments, a small collection of mementos brought for the purpose, among the officers, and among his weeping friends and relatives.

Nicholas Ridley, Edward’s Bishop of London, believed that the reaction to the changes made during Edward’s six years was little more than outward acceptance of a new religion for political or personal aims, and any obedience to it was merely show, nothing more.

He was Bishop of Worcester (pronounced WOOS-ter) in the time of King Henry, but resigned in protest against the King's refusal to allow the Protestant reforms that Latimer desired.
Thomas Cranmer was Archbishop of Canterbury in the days of Henry, and defended the position that Henry's marriage to Katharine of Aragon (Spain) was null and void.
When Edward came to the throne, Cranmer was foremost in translating the worship of the Church into English (his friends and enemies agree that he was an extraordinarily gifted translator) and securing the use of the new forms of worship.

“We thought that the best way to commemorate Nicholas Ridley and the beginning of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the theological college that bears his name was to engage the principles of the Reformation Church with the mission of the Contemporary Church” the Principal Canon Chris Cocksworth told the 200 guests on Friday (November 4).
Ridley was born in Northumberland, and in 1518 went to Pembroke College Cambridge, later becoming a fellow and after studying in France subsequently master.
Just before Edward’s death in 1553, Ridley unwisely supported the claim of Lady Jane Grey-she is buried in the chapel —to the throne and publicly denounced Mary and Elizabeth, as Henry VIII’s daughters, as illegitimate.
