Joy or Joye, George

an early promoter of the Reformation, a native of the county of Bedford, was educated at Peterhouse, Cambridge, where he graduated M.A. in 1517. An associate of Tyndale, he was in 1527 accused of heresy, and obliged to go to Germany, where he resided for many years. He was concerned in the superintendence of Tyndale's Bibles, printed at Antwerp, and finally returned to his native country but the time of his death is unknown. Besides his translation of part of the Bible, he published On the Unity and Schism of the ancient Church (1534) Subversion of More's False Foundation (1534): Commentary on Daniel, in the main from Melancthon, etc. See Gorton, Biog.
