The paper provides interesting extracts from the diary of Rev Thomas Larkham. His Puritanism led to ejection from his living and he fled to New England where he remained until 1642. The records of other denominations than the Church of England sometimes contain more information than those of the 'established church', often including a person's birth date, baptism date, father's name and residence, and mother's name (including maiden name). Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the Princeton University Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
