Isaac Walton

Isaac Walton, author of The Compleat Angler, was Bishop Morley’s friend for more than forty years. He offered Morley refuge before he went into exile on the continent.

When Morley became Bishop of Winchester shortly after the Restoration, he employed Walton as his steward. Walton continued to live with Morley for two decades. He dedicated three of his books to Morley. His will, made the year he died, refers to personal belongings in Farnham Castle.
