Text source

Thomas Camerarius (from Aberdeen), age 15, matriculated at the Seminary of Braunsberg in the diocese of Ermland (Warmia) in July 1619. In 1625, he fled secretly in a 'long dress' with 'fratre milite Calvinista.' It appears that he may have returned to Catholicism and then was sent to Scotland.
