  • Notes 
    • "The Rev. William Worcester served as vicar of Olney [Buckinghamshire] from 27 July 1624 until 1636, when he refused to read the Book of Sports from the pulpit and was suspended. After three years of ecclesiastical difficulty, Worcester moved his family first to Lynn and then to Salisbury, Massachusetts, where the 'reverend and graciously godly Mr. Woster' served as minister until his death on 28 October 1662."
