Abstract: The facts concerning Bryskett’s life are relatively well documented. He was born in England, son of a Protestant Genoese merchant and an Italian mother in 1546 or 1547. Lodowick’s father Antonio Bruschetto was an agent of Sir William Cecil who corresponded with Italian agents of the Papal Curia, and his brother Sebastian gathered intelligence in Italy for the English government (Bartlett 1992). Lodowick studied at Trinity College (Cambridge) but interrupted his studies, probably due to financial difficulties encountered by his father. Known to be a polyglot and an experienced traveller, he entered the service of the household of Sir Henry Sidney, the father of the poet Sir Philip Sidney who Bryskett accompanied on a Grand Tour from 1572 to 1574.
