Description

Autograph Letter 1649 written to Protestant Minister Thomas Horrocks – saying that in thanks for many favours he has left an item of clothing which can be altered if necessary, the writer Thomas Whincop is most likely to be the Puritan Rector of Lolworth, Lincolnshire who was forced to resign in 1644 because Puritans forbade Pluralism. His correspondent Mr Hurlock is almost certainly Thomas Horrocks, M.A., a zealous Protestant who had many enemies of catholic persuasion and who in 1649 had been appointed Minister of Stapleford Tawney, the letter written just three and a half months after the execution of Charles I
