The documented evidence that some of the translators of the KJV were involved in the persecution of believers has been requested. Paine noted that KJV translators George Abbot and Lancelot Andrewes were two of the Church of England divines who urged the burning at the stake of Bartholomew Legate in March of 1611 (MEN BEHIND THE KJB, p. 142). This same source noted that George Abbot presided over the proceedings (p. 93). At its article about Abbot, The standard reference work THE DICTIONARY OF NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY pointed out that Legate and Edward Wightman were brought before the court of George Abbot and that "Abbot was from the first resolved that no mercy should be shown them" (p. 11). This same reference work also noted that in another case involving clergyman Edmund Peacham that Abbot "approved the use of torture" (p. 11). Alexander McClure noted that prelate Thomas Ravis [another KJV translator] was "a fierce persecutor of the Puritans" (KJV TRANSLATORS REVIVED, p. 150). McClure also pointed out that Archbishop Richard Bancroft, who was overseer for the translating of the KJV, "was the ruling spirit in that infamous tribunal, the High Commission Court, a sort of British Inquisition" (p. 217). There were other KJV translators that were members of the Church of England's High Commission Court and Star Chamber that persecuted believers.
