Died: 4 February 1684
The Wikipedia article gives birth and death years as 1623 and 1683. However, in old style, the year end was Lady Day, 25 March, not 31st December. In England, the change took place with the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar in 1752. Confusingly, Hymns Ancient and Modern, New Standard gives 1624 and 1683.
