Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: None of my relatives here, no connection in my ancestry to the towns mentioned. I am a historical genealogist researching the social, cultural, economic and political history of New England, so that I have a context to help me understand the lives of the people and families of the era I am working on. This book does a beautiful job of comparing villages in New England with their counterparts in England, and the dynamics at work. Many of the people mentioned lived in these specific villages on both sides of the Atlantic, and it is interesting to see how they adapted the emerging social consciousness of 17th century England to the different conditions of New England, where people of many backgrounds were forging new institutions and customs. Well done, with direct comparisons to illustrate how the changes manifested in the American villages. I found it an illuminating window into the development of early New England culture.

This was exactly what I was hoping to find between covers. I now have information about my first American ancestors I did not have before. I am enjoying the book, even though it is a bit of a puzzle to read.

A very thoroughly researched history of the Puritan Town of Sudbury, founded by my grandfather Brian Pendleton and two other gentlemen in 1637.

Book arrived in fair condition. The spine was broken in the middle of the book, but otherwise ok.
