    Note: As Lord Chancellor he confessed to corruption (bribe taking) and his career ended in disgrace. However Bacon himself said, claiming that he took a fall for King James, ``I was the justest judge, that was in England these last fifty years. When the book of all hearts is opened, I trust I shall not be found to have the troubled fountain of a corrupt heart. I know I have clean hands and a clean heart. I am as innocent of bribes as any born on St. Innocents Day.''

     Born:  London 1561    Died:  1627     d. of pneumonia
