Errington, Anthony (DNB00)

ERRINGTON, ANTHONY, D.D. (d. 1719?), catholic divine, was a member of the Northumbrian family. His name appears in a list of Douay writers, but he was more probably educated at Lisbon and Paris. He is said to have died about 1719.

He wrote: 1. ‘Catechistical Discourses,’ Paris, 1654, 16mo, dedicated to the ‘Princesse Henrietta Maria, daughter of England.’ 2. ‘Missionarium: sive opusculum practicum, pro fide propaganda et conservanda,’ Rome, 1672, 12mo.
