I don't think you will find him listed on Wikipedia anywhere...for that matter, the entire internet may not even list him. But feel free to investigate! :)

spies in the 1500s had a variety of roles but were usually employed most by two enormous industries: (1) the trade in grains/cereals and (2) religion (Spanish Inquisition. etc)
