Arthur Howland (abt. 1590 - 1675) emigrated as early as 1633 and the first mention of Arthur is in 1640 where he is described as a planter in Duxbury. MA.
Thomas Keene Jr. (1593 - abt. 1653) of Otley, Suffolk, England may have been one of the original settlers of Kent Island who went there from Virginia with Col. Clayborne in 1631. If he did live for a while on St. Marys, he later returned to Kent Island, where on Nov 9, 1640, he patented 100 acres of land in Hog Pen Creek and Chesapeake Bay on the West. We know that his eldest son was born on Kent in 1642. The Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1633-47, give an assessment by Lieut. Grall and Council for levying 2000 pounds of tobacco to the account of the last expedition-'levies upon the county of Kent after the rates following.' Among those levied upon was Thomas Keyne.
Roger Williams (abt. 1606 - 1683) emigrated from London, England to Salem with his wife aboard the ship "Lyon" in 1631. He later established Rhode Island having been kicked out of Salem and Plymouth for the quality of his preachings. "His favorite theme was liberty of conscience in religious matters, and that civil magistrates as such have no power in the church, and that Christians as such are subject to no laws or control, but those of King Jesus."
Obadiah Holmes (1607 - 1682) was born in Reddish, Lancashire, England and emigrated in 1638 to Boston. In 1651 Obadiah Holmes was convicted and whipped at Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony for "seducing and drawing aside others after their erroneous judgment and practices." Holmes refused to pay his fine since he was not guilty of any crime whereupon the Rev. John Wilson, pastor of the Boston Church, hit him and asked God to curse him. Holmes was severely whipped (30 lashes) and carried his scars for the rest of his life. Holmes said later about the whipping: "...having joyfulness in my heart, and cheerfulness in my countenance...I told the magistrates, 'you have struck me as with roses."
William Ball III (1615 - 1680) was born in Barkham, Berkshire, England and he emigrated and arrived in Lancaster County, Virginia by 1653.
