Francis Tate (1560-1616) was an English antiquary and politician, Member of Parliament for Northampton and Shrewsbury.He was born in 1560 at Gayton, the second son of Bartholomew Tate (d. 1601) of Delapre, Northamptonshire, by his wife Dorothy, daughter of Francis Tanfield of Gayton. On 20 December 1577 he matriculated as a commoner at Magdalen College, Oxford, but left the university without a degree and entered the Middle Temple. He was called to the bar in 1587, but devoted his attention mainly to antiquarian researches. He was an original member of the Society of Antiquaries, and was for some time its secretary; a volume of collections by him (Stowe MS. 1045) is said to consist of matters discussed by the society. In 1601 Tate was returned to parliament for Northampton.
