Excerpt from History of the Free Churchmen: Called the Brownists, Pilgrim Fathers and Baptists in the Dutch Republic, 1581-1701

Few periods of American history have the attraction for students like that one in the decade from 1620 to 1630. In this period the Independents, or Pilgrim Fathers, settled at Plymouth. After the precedent of success given by these pioneers, came the Puritans.

To investigate Pilgrim origins, to learn the life, character and purposes of the founders of Plymouth colony, to trace out the motives and causes of their leaving Europe, have been during the last seventy years tasks in which the ablest American historians have spared neither time nor toil. Every vestige in writing in England the Netherlands has been sought out and the Dutch and English archives ran sacked. Books so scarce as to be almost unobtainable, have been reprinted and for others searches were begun long ago, which have continued to this day. Enthusiastic scholars crossed the ocean many times in order to glean in this field of history and to collect information-in reference to their ancestors.
