William Brewster

Fearing persecution and prosecution, Brewster and the others from Nottinghamshire fled the country in autumn 1607. They reached Amsterdam in spring 1608 and moved on to Leiden, Holland in 1609 where Brewster became the church's Elder.

In 1620 when the Pastor John Robinson decided to remain behind in Leiden, the small expeditionary group venturing out on the Mayflower wanted the next highest ranking church official, Elder Brewster, go with them. He took his wife Mary and two youngest children, Love and Wrestling, with him.

Brewster continued his work as Church Elder throughout his life at the Plymouth Colony. He died in 1644, aged almost eighty.
