John Naylor was probably a son of the religious and fanatic impostor, James Naylor, a native of Ardsley, and who lived in Wakefield. During the civil wars James Naylor served various offices on the Parliamentary side; he took an active part in the seige of Leeds in 1643, and rose to be Quartermaster under General Lambert. For his blasphemy he was severely punished, and confined in prison in 1660. After his discharge he set out for Wakefield to see his wife and family; some miles from Huntingdon he was robbed, and from the injuries he received he shortly after died at a friend's house at Holme, near King's Repton.
