In the 17th and 18th centuries Coventry was notable as a centre of protestant dissent and it was not until the mid 19th century that there was any marked revival of Roman Catholicism there. However, the Catholic element seems never to have been entirely obliterated. During the 1550s, in spite of the prevailing anti-Catholic temper of the city, the presence of a few individual Catholics can be traced………..
