The destruction of Cheapside Cross and the burning of the Book of Sports, May 1643 (1903). Artist: Unknown

The destruction of Cheapside Cross and the burning of the Book of Sports, May 1643 (1903). The Cheapside Cross (or Eleanor's Cross) in London was demolished on 2 May 1643, under an order from the Parliamentary Committee for the Demolition of Monuments of Superstition and Idolatry, led by the Puritan MP Robert Harley. The Declaration of Sports was a declaration of James I of England issued in 1617 listing the sports and recreations that were permitted on Sundays and other holy days. As the Puritans gained increasing influence in Parliament in run up to the English Civil War, hostility towards the Book of Sports grew. Parliament ordered the book publicly burned in 1643. From London in the Time of the Stuarts, by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1903]

Thomas Mayhew and the Narragansett sachem, 17th century (c1880). Artist: Unknown

Thomas Mayhew and the Narragansett sachem, 17th century (c1880). Thomas Mayhew (1593-1682) was part of the so-called Great Migration that saw 20, 000 Puritan settlers arrive in Massachusetts from England in the 1630s. In 1642, together with his son, Thomas Jr, he established the first settlement at Martha's Vineyard. Both Mayhews took trouble to foster good relations with the Native American tribes of the area, including the Narragansetts, and Thomas Jr worked tirelessly to bring Christianity to them. After the younger Mayhew was lost at sea on a journey to England in 1657, his father took on the mantle of his missionary work, despite being sixty years old. A print from Cassell's History of the United States, by Edmund Ollier, Volume I, Cassell Petter and Galpin, London, c1880.
