my family tree says, my family are both sides, York and Tudor, and I placed a question in another post about the coincidence ,in the people who left England after Henry made the new laws, and taxes.
So many of the pilgrim's came from Herefordshire, or Warwickshire or Lincoln shire, all who had lost lords and land's, in the wars of the rose's
and were overly taxed now! It wasn't religious persecution, it was taxes and laws. Is what my tree says! although the wars of the rose's was over catholic and protestant religions! the bishops war!
