John Chappel 
Woodhouse
, !D.D. Dean of Lichfield , b. in 1749 . This eminent divine was educated at Christ Church, Oxford , and upon taking holy orders was presented by the late Duke of Sutherland, then Marquis of Stafford , to the living of Donnington , in the county of Salop . In 1805 he published "Woodhouse 's Annotations on the Apocalypse," which he reedited at the request of the Rev. Dr. Van-Mildert , Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford , now Bishop of Durham . The following testimony to the excellence of the work may be seen in a copy of the book preserved in the library of Haitlebury Castle, which Hurd , Bishop of Worcester , bequeathed to his successors in the see, and is thus written in his lordship's own hand-writing: "This is the best book of its kind that I have seen; it owes its superiority chiefly to two things, 1. The author's understanding for the most parts the Apocalyptic symbols in a spiritual, not a literal sense. 2. To the care he has taken to fix the precise import of those symbols, from the use made of them by the old prophetical and other writers of the Old and New Testament. Still many difficulties remain, and will remain, to the time of the end. R. W. 15 Mar 1806 ." Dr. Woodhouse was appointed to the Deanery of Lichfield , in 1807 , where he resided during the remainder of his life. He was a great benefactor to the cathedral, and presented it with the painted window in the north transept. He died sincerely lamented 17 Nov 1833 ."
