There was Abbot, George, Archbishop of Canterbury who lies buried in that Chappel of his Endowerment the Hospital & Monument in Guildford near the the Famous Red Lion Inn. extracted from J Evelyn 22nd Aug 1653

"...George Abbot was born in 1562 in Guildford in Surrey, where he was educated before entering Balliol College, Oxford. He gained a great reputation at Oxford as an advocate of the views held by the more moderate Puritans and was elected Master of University College, Dean of Winchester and Vice-Chancellor of the University.
...Abbot found little favour in the eyes of King Charles I and his advisers. A feud had existed between Abbot and Laud from early days. In 1627, he was suspended from the exercise of his archiepiscopal functions and the sequestration lasted for more than a year. ..."
