I live near Scrooby and Austerfield - there are signs up reminding people of their link with the Pilgrim Fathers.

I'll pray for you and yours everytime I see the sign now.

Thank you for this wonderful Biography of Deacon William Brewster. I have been doing my family genealogy research for a number of years and only recently found out I am the 11th gr.granddaughter of William Brewster through his daughter Patience who married Gov. Thomas Prence.
I have enjoyed reading your narrative about our ancestor's early years and how he was connected to Scrooby, England. You have helped me to see a real person in our family rather then just dates of birth, death and marriage. Thank you so much for honoring our great grandfather this way.
I would like to put your narrative into my files for my children and grandchildren to enjoy but would first like your permission and information about you to add to my source documentation to give you the credit due to you. You can contact me at wildwings@harborside.com
Thank again so much.

Stewart Charles Brewster

Thanks for your efforts and greetings. I am a 11th generation direct descendent of Elder Brewster, through Love who was almost ten years old when he arrived with Elder Brewster on the Mayflower. Love's Grandson William moved to Connecticut and his grandson Ichabod Brewster was born in Lebanon, CT where I was born five generations later. What in particular intrigues me about Elder Brewster was the dramatic shift of fortunes which ulimately gave Elder Brewster the quiet measure of a man content to labor and give guidance to William Bradford at Plymouth, particular during the first two experimental communal years in Plymouth, MA., where without Elder Brewster the colony could have easily followed Jamestown. It was this steady strength of character, without fanfare that I find so courageous in a very mature 52 year old man when he embarked from Plymouth, England. Lastly, there is much speculation, never to be proven, that Elder Brewster conceived and wrote the Mayflower compact as he was the only separatist with a university training and understood the societal issues the group had faced in Holland. A quiet intriguing man of character and faith. The pilgrim painting standing for 160 years in the US capital captures the central role Elder Brewster played in the 24 years he lived in the new colony. Skip Brewster, Los Gatos, California

Thank you for an excellent summary of Elder Brewser's life in England. One small point: Scrooby Manor was in the posession of the Archbishop of York, not the Archbishop of Canterbury.
