"Rauf (later known as Ralph) Cudworth, the posthumous son of Rauf, was born
shortly after 14 Sept. 1572, the day on which his father's will was probated. He was
educated for the ministry. He entered Emanuel College at Cambridge University.
He took the usual degrees, became a Fellow of Emanuel College, and Lecturer at
St. Andrews, Cambridge. He soon received an appointment as Rector of Aller, in
Somerset, a Living in the gift of Emanuel College, which he held during his lifetime
and which, even after his death in 1624, continued a pension to his children."

"It is well known that the father of Ralph Cudworth, D.D., author of the "True
Intellectual System of the Universe," was a clergyman also named Ralph Cudworth. In the
memoir prefixed to the "Intellectual System," it is stated that the author of that work
'was son of Dr. Ralph Cudworth, at first Fellow of Emanuel College in the University of
Cambridge, and afterwards minister of St. Andrew's Church in that town, and at last rector
of Aller in Somersetshire, and chaplain to James I. He died in August or September, 1624'."
