William Tyndale, born about 1494, was strangled and burned at the stake
in 1536 for presuming to translate the New Testament into English. He
first produced a printed translation of the New Testament into English
in 1525-1526. This was revised several times during his life time. One
edition of Tyndale's New Testament (1534?) , with some modern English
spellings, is published by Yale University Press, and I understand this
is available your side of the Atlantic.

Is 1534 earlier enough for your purposes, Joseph?
