ford speaks of " your father-in-law, Mr. May."

Apparently he was understood to be of hig-h de.scent.

Wolstenholme letter of Jan. 17, 1617, and two declarations of
belief of church for submission to Council. Cushman "s letter of
May 8-18, 1619, from London seems to prove that Brewster
then was in England again. Whether he ever returned to Levd.
is uncertain. The following works were printed by Brewer and
himself : —

1. An Ahridgrment of thai Book which the Ministers of Lincoln Dio-
cess delivered to his Majestic upon the first of December last, being the

first part of an Apologi/e for themselues and their brethren that refuse
the subscription and conformitie which is required. [Reprint.] 1617.

3. A Full and plaine Declaration of Ecclesiastical Discipline. By
W. Travers (?). 1616 or 1617.

' Possibly she was a widow already having children. This supposition wonld
acconnt for their number. But the records do not sug-gest it. All the children
have Brewer as the last name or the contrary names would be stated. That two
contemporary children should have the same first name was the fact occasionallv
later iu the Plyra. Col., but no other instance at Leyden haa been noted.

buried her aged mother at Wrini^ton in 1044 and then came over to Plymouth,
■where she died in lOsT, ajjed about 90. As no mention of the mother or of this

No rec. of wedding. Prob. it was at Amst.*

' In the first case the name in the record seems to be Carceer, and in the sec-
ond Taver. Without much doubt each stands for Carver.

■■* They livfd in Amsterdam, but apparently had lived earlier in Norwich and
London, Eng. He was an elder (Cong, in Lit. 3o'.). But J. Ilowells — Epis. Ho.
Elian. 10 — says a deacon) in Ainsworth's church in 1(112. The Leyden records
give " Cathlyne " plainly. But as the Amsterdam records state that when Jean
married Alice (Lewis), widow of Thos. Dickens, Au','-. 7, iri04, he was widower of
Cath., the Leyden clerk must have set down Susanna's mother's name, which nat-
urally mipht have been mentioned, as that of her step-mother who evidently was
present. This step-mother must h.ave been Jacqueline (May) de la Cluse, from
Wisbech, Cambs., whom Jean had married May 14, 1(3(J9, sister of Dor. (May)

* The absence of any entry of a marriag-e following a betrothal may hive been
accidental in some eases, but is more likely to mean that the wedding took place
elsewhere and was recorded where it occurred.
