The last stages of Fuller’s life coincided with the end of the Cromwellian Protectorate and the return of the Stuart monarchy in the person of Charles I’s son, Charles II. Fuller commented on these events in printed works during the most important steps in the process. His Mixt Contemplations in Better Times proposed a comprehensive religious settlement with toleration for those who chose not to be a part of the national Church. Fuller had recently become minister of Cranford, a parish to the west of London, a living in the gift of George Berkeley, who welcomed the return of the monarchy. Fuller was recognized for his accomplishments by a D.D. degree at Cambridge and by being named a royal chaplain. Fuller died on August 16, 1661. Two hundred members of the London clergy attended his funeral. The anonymous life, which paid tribute to Fuller’s ministry and scholarship, was written by one who evidently knew him well.
