Fynes Moryson (1566-1630) entered Pembroke College, Cambridge, in 1580. He obtained the degrees of B.A. and M.A. (1587), and was made a Fellow about 1584. Between 1591 and 1595 he visited Germany, the Low Countries, Denmark, Poland, Italy, Switzerland and France, and in 1598 he travelled to the Holy Land and Constantinople, and visited Scotland. He was Chief Secretary to Sir Charles Blount, Lord-Deputy in Ireland, 1601-1606, and during this time helped in the suppression of Tyrone's rebellion. Moryson died on 12 February 1630.
