1580 - In 1580, William Brewster (1563-1644) matriculated at Peterhouse College, in Cambridge, where it is believed he acquired his earliest Separatist ideas. The Separatists held the view that "the worship of the English Church is flat idolatry; that we admit into our Church persons unsanctified; that our preachers have no lawful calling; that our government is ungodly; that no bishop or preacher preacheth Christ sincerely and truly; that the people of every parish ought to choose their bishop, and that every elder, though he be no doctor nor pastor, is a bishop; --- that set prayer is blasphemous." These were radical views, which struck at the very roots of the government established English church. In Cambridge William BREWSTER joined the Separatist "underground" teachers and students who militantly refused to attend the compulsory services in the state-controlled churches.

William BREWSTER accompanied DAVISON, as his personal aide, to Holland, during the war with Spain. When the Netherlands surrendered their "cautionary towns" to Elizabeth, the keys of these towns were entrusted by DAVISON to the custody of BREWSTER. William BREWSTER visited the Netherlands in 1584 and again in 1585/86, returning to Scrooby in 1588 after the disgrace of DAVISON, which followed the execution of Mary STUART. Campbell, Douglas, THE PURITAN in HOLLAND, ENGLAND, and AMERICA (1893), v.II, pp.240-241; Sherwood, Mary B., PILGRIM, A BIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM BREWSTER (1982), pp.29-77.

Thomas PRENCE; and Fear BREWSTER (1606-1634) m.1626 Isaac ALLERTON.
John G. Hunt in the January 1965 issue of THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, v.41, pp.1-5,63, presents strong circumstantial evidence that William BREWSTER's wife was Mary WENTWORTH, dau. of Thomas and Grace (GASCOIGNE) WENTWORTH. The evidence has not been accepted as conclusive, however. See also Walter Burgess's JOHN ROBINSON, the PASTOR of the PILGRIMS (1920), pp.80-81; Sherwood, Mary B., PILGRIM, A BIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM BREWSTER (1982), pp.85-88; THE ELDER BREWSTER PRESS (Summer 1980), v.2, No.1, pp.6-7; William Burgess's JOHN ROBINSON, THE PASTOR OF THE PILGRIMS (1920), p.80; N.E.H.& G.R., v.113, pp.68-69 and v.124, pp.250-254; THE SECOND BOAT, v.7,p.95.

1587 - In 1587, Queen Elizabeth, in an effort to conceal her own complicity in the death of Mary STUART Queen of Scots, ordered her Secretary of State, William DAVISON, to trial for supposedly concealing Mary STUART's death warrant among other papers he presented to Elizabeth for her signature. (He was the scape-goat.) He was found guilty, fined and thrown into prison. Queen Elizabeth immediately pardoned him, and revoked the fine, and restored his position and title, but unable to face him, she exiled him from the court along with his entourage, including his aide, William BREWSTER. TV GUIDE (December 28, 1974), p.20-22. Campbell, Douglas, THE PURITAN in HOLLAND, ENGLAND, and AMERICA (1893), v.II, pp.75-76.
1587 - A Mr. COPE, in
1587, presented the
"Book of Discipline" to Parliament, and offered a bill for its
into law. For this offense he, together with Peter WENTWORTH,
Puritan, who then stood up for freedom of speech, was committed to the
Tower by order of Queen Elizabeth. - Campbell, Douglas, THE
PURITAN in HOLLAND, ENGLAND, and AMERICA (1893), v.II, p.169.
(Note: Some say that Elder William BREWSTER, of the Mayflower, married, ca.1585, to Mary WENTWORTH, dau. of Thomas and Grace (GASCOIGNE) WENTWORTH. The Peter WENTWORTH who was condemned to the Tower, perhaps was a brother or cousin of Mary BREWSTER.)

1589 - William COPP (1589-1670), son of Thomas and Isabel (GUNNE) COPP, was bapt. 9 Nov. 1589.
1590 - William BREWSTER, upon receiving news of the illness of William BREWSTER, Sr., returned to Scrooby in early 1589. Upon the death of the Senior William BREWSTER, Sir William DAVISON recommended his former aide, William BREWSTER (Jr.), for the bailiff and postmaster positions previously held by BREWSTER's deceased father. During his father's illness, young BREWSTER served more than eighteen months as his father's deputy. On 22 August 1590, a letter was sent from Mr. John STANHOPE to Sir William DAVISON, Queen Elizabeth's secretary. Mr. STANHOPE sent his regrets that he could not comply with DAVISON's request. On the death of old BRUSTER, one Samuel REVERCOTES wrote to STANHOPE for the place of postmaster at SCROOBY, and STANHOPE had complied. He stated his reasons for not conferring the place on young BRUSTER, who had served in that place for his father, old BRUSTER. Secretary DAVISON returned the letter with notes in his own hand in defense of young BREWSTER, and pointed out that since, young BREWSTER had held the positions for over a year-and-a-half during his fathers illness, that he should be allowed to continue. Secretary DAVISON apparently was persuasive and/or able to use his influence. BREWSTER got the positions, which he held until he departed for Holland in 1609.

1593 - Parliament, in 1593, forbade the Separatists to hold their own services. Anyone who refused to attend church for forty days, and who went instead to private meetings "contrary to the laws and statutes of this realm [and] being thereof lawfully convicted, shall be committed to prison, there to remain without bail or mainprise, until they shall confirm and yield themselves to come to some church." The Act Against Puritans 1593; Cowie, Leonard W., THE PILGRIM FATHERS, (London, 1970 - American edition, 1972), p.15.
1593 - In the Parliament which was summoned for 1593, the speaker, Edward COKE, presented the usual petition to the queen, asking for liberty of speech for freedom from arrest, and for access to her majesty. For answer he was told that privilege of speech was granted, but it consisted in saying "yea" or "no;" and that members of Parliament could have access to her majesty at times convenient, and when she was at leisure from other important causes of the realm. considering this a sharp rebuff, Peter WENTWORTH again shocked Parliament and the Queen by bringing in a bill for settling the succession to the crown, and again he was promptly committed to the Tower. Campbell, Douglas, THE PURITAN in HOLLAND, ENGLAND, and AMERICA (1893), v.II, p.170.
1593 - Jonathan BREWSTER, son of William and Mary BREWSTER, was born 12 Aug. 1593 at Scrooby, England. George F. Willison's SAINTS and STRANGERS (1945), p.39; THE MAYFLOWER QUARTERLY, v.51, pp.161-167; v.52, pp.6-16,57-63,72-83.
1597 - A church court was in session in 1597 to consider simony charges against James BREWSTER, vicar of Sutton cum Launde, Nottinghamshire. Before the Rev. Mr. John BENET, L.L.D., "appeared William BREWSTER, gen., brother of the aforesaid James BREWSTER, cleric, which William gave assent to the findings of the court, by which the salary of said cleric was to be withheld." ACT BOOK of the YORK DIOCESE CHANCERY COURT, R.VII, AB.46, ff.104v, 122,131; THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, v.41, pp.1-5.
1597 - Edmund HUBBARD
or HOBART (1574-1646)
first, ca.1597, to --?--. He had two daughters by this first
Rebecca and Sarah HOBART.
(NOTE: The HOBART family name is found in many different spelling variations. In Hingham, England and sometime in New England the name was spelled HUBBARD, HUBBERT, etc. The HOBART spelling became popular later in New England. We sometimes find it spelled several different ways in transcripts of the same records.)
1598 - Robert PECK of Everton, England, in his will dated 1598, proved at York the same year, named wife Prudence and left his daughter Ann seven pounds, six shillings, eight pence. THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, v.41, pp.1-5; NEW ENGLAND HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL REGISTER, v.111, pp.319-20;
1600 - Edmund HOBART or HUBBARD (1574-1646) married second, 17 September 1600, at Hingham, England, to Margaret DEWEY (ca.1574-1633) of Wymondham, Norfolk, England.

Cotton Mather in his MAGNALIA says of Edmund HOBART and his wife,--- "They were eminent for piety, and feared God above many. There were but three or four in the whole town that minded serious religion, and these were sufficiently maligned by the irreligious for their Puritanism." See LDS No.198, Bk.5, p.9; AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, v.27, pp.94-95.
1602 - The will of John GACE was proved in 1602. He mentions "George, Edward and William DENYSON, children of my wife," also "Elizabeth CROUCH, a daughter of my wife."

1603 - When James I ascended the English throne in 1603, The Puritans presented him with the Millenary Petition, calling for numerous reforms in the English Church. However, James I, who believed that he ruled by Devine Right (by the Will of God alone), was determined to maintain uniformity in religion. He had a special dislike for the Puritans (and Separatists) who refused to recognize the authority of the State in matters of religion.
1603 - Robert PECK, son of Robert and Helen (BABBS) PECK, attended Magdalen College, Cambridge, England, where he had his degree of A. B. and A. M.; the latter 1603. He was a minister at Hingham, England for over 30 years (before coming to New England), "yet was harassed for non-conformity to some of the ceremonies by Bishop HARSNET, his diocesan, whose impudence in honor of the church was so great as to excite complaint from the people of Norwich, in 1623, to the House of Commons in Parliament. Two successors were milder, but when WREN came to the Cathedral, no Puritan could long serve at the altar. Robert PECK embarked October 1641, with wife and son Joseph for home, and went back to his old parsonage; there he died 1656. Reverend Robert PECK had children: Ann PECK married July 1639, at Windsor, Conn. to John MASON; Joseph PECK; Thomas PECK; Samuel PECK; and Robert PECK.

1606 - As early as 1606, a Separatist congregation was formed in Scrooby, which met in the manor house where William BREWSTER lived. "After they were joined together into communion he was a special stay and help unto them. They ordinarily met at his house on the Lord's Day, which was a Manor of the Bishop's [the Archbishop of York]; and with great love he entertained them when they came, making provision for them, to his great charge, and continued to do so, whilst they could stay in England." William Bradford's LIFE OF WILLIAM BREWSTER; Cowie, Leonard W., THE PILGRIM FATHERS, (London, 1970 - American edition, 1972), p.24-25.
1607 - William BREWSTER was dismissed from his postmaster position at Scrooby, in 1607, because of his Separatist activities.
1607 - The Puritan persecution intensified under James I, and William BREWSTER, William BRADFORD and other Scrooby Separatists, at last decided to escape to Holland. "In Autumn 1607, those who had not yet been arrested and thrown into prison resolved to smuggle themselves out of the country. Packing their personal belongings and led by their pastor, Richard CLIFTON, the Separatists set out for the port of Boston, Lincolnshire, England (sixty miles from Scrooby). At Boston, they were betrayed by the captain of the ship that was to have transported them; their goods were ransacked; and they were imprisoned for a month or more. BREWSTER, BRADFORD, and CLIFTON were the last to be set free having served about a year in the prison at Boston, England. Cowie, Leonard W., THE PILGRIM FATHERS, (London, 1970 - American edition, 1972), p.26; Sherwood, Mary B., PILGRIM, A BIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM BREWSTER (1982); pp.79-110.
"On 1 December 1607, William Brewster of Scrooby was cited before the High Court of Commission on information that he was a Brownist and disobedient in matters of religion. He was fined 20 pounds." (And apparently he went to prison in addition to the fine.) THE MAYFLOWER QUARTERLY v.57, No.2, pp.106-109.
A diary entry of 1608 reads, "Seeing themselves thus molested, and that there was no hope of their continuance there, by a joynte consente they resolved to go into the Low Countries, where they heard was freedome of Religion for all men." Their exile to a new and foreign land was not easy. "The ports and havens were shut against them. So as they were fain to seek secret means of conveyance; and to bribe and fee the mariners, and give extra-ordinary rates for their passages. And yet were they often-times betrayed, many of them; and both they and their goods intercepted and surprised, and thereby put to great trouble and charge." Cotton Mather's LIFE OF GOVERNOR WILLIAM BRADFORD; Bradford, William, HISTORY OF THE PLYMOUTH SETTLEMENT.
1608 - In 1608, another attempt was made by the Separatists to escape to Holland. They were pursued, and in their haste to avoid capture or worse, many of the men were separated from their wives, and families. The women left behind in England were arrested, but their captors, not knowing how to dispose of these women whose only crime was wanting to join their husbands, released them. The families gradually re-united in Holland and settled first in Amsterdam and in 1609 at Leiden, Holland. Cowie, Leonard W., THE PILGRIM FATHERS, (London, 1970 - American edition, 1972), p.29-34; Bradford, William, HISTORY OF THE PLYMOUTH SETTLEMENT.

1609 - In February 1609 permission was granted by the Burgomasters of Leyden, Holland for 150 persons, or thereabouts, to re-settle in Leyden, "provided such persons behave themselves and obey the laws and ordinances. Elder William BREWSTER removed to Leiden, Holland, where he was chosen a ruling elder in the new church. He, at first, made a living as "ribbon maker" in a silk factory, but, as an educated man, he soon was able to earn money by teaching. "His outward condition was mended, and he lived well and plentifully. For he fell into a way, by reason he had the Latin tongue, to teach many students who had a desire to learn the English tongue, to teach them English; and by his method they quickly attained it with great facility; for he drew Rules to learn it by, after the Latin manner. And many Gentlemen, both Danes and Germans, resorted to him, as they had time from other studies; some of them being Great Men's sons."

1609 - Elder William
BREWSTER, aged about
years, came before the aldermen at Leiden, Holland, 12 June 1609 (eight
days before the burial of an un-named child of William BREWSTER), as
of Ann PECK, native of Launde (near Scrooby, England), when they
to Thomas SIMKINSON, merchant of Hull (he probably was son of John and
Mary (SMYTHE) SYMKINSON and half-brother of Elder William BREWSTER),
power to received seven pounds sterling that Ann PECK had left in the
of William WATKIN, pastor of Clarborough (six miles south-east of
when she left England.
Ann PECK and her brother Robert PECK were wards of William BREWSTER. That they were William BREWSTER's neice and nephew is apparent, for it seems that their parents were Robert and Prudence (BREWSTER) PECK of Everton (about two miles east of Scrooby); which Robert PECK, in his will dated 1598, proved at York the same year, named wife Prudence and left his daughter Ann seven pounds, six shillings, eight pence.
(Comment - It might be reasonable to assume that the "child of William BREWSTER" who was buried, 20 June 1609, was Prudence (BREWSTER) PECK, dau. of William BREWSTER, Sr. and wife of Robert PECK, since her brother, Elder William BREWSTER appeared in court eight days earlier as guardian of Prudence's minor daughter, Ann PECK.) - THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, v.41, pp.1-5; NEW ENGLAND HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL REGISTER, v.111, pp.319-20; Sherwood, Mary B., PILGRIM, A BIOGRAPHY OF WILLIAM BREWSTER (1982), p.121-122.

Their residence was in the "stinckteech" in Leiden on the "Pieterskerkhof," in the little colony of houses on the estate of John ROBINSON.

took all that between the Pascataqua and Merrimac rivers, and called it
New Hampshire. This John MASON formed a company or association
