Wheatley: "Dr. Herbert Croft, Dean of Hereford, consecrated Bishop of Hereford, February 9th, 1661-2. He succeeded Bishop Morley as Dean of the Chapel. Burnet says 'Crofts was a warm devout man, but of no discretion in his conduct; so he lost ground quickly. He used much freedom with the King, but it was in the wrong place, not in private but in the pulpit.' Bishop Croft died at Hereford, May 18th, 1691."
