What did they eat, for instance. Or, more accurately, how did they prefer it to be cooked?
And did children really smoke tobacco and drink beer, as seemed to be common among the Puritans.
My book, Quaking Dover, mentions a number of things that may have come down through the West Country culture of Devonshire. As one historian details, they were part of the Cavaliers’ lifestyle in Virginia, but for now I have no evidence of the degree they influenced the settlers in the Piscataqua watershed.
Still, I believe they were one of the reasons the Quaker message so readily took root and flourished there.
Not that Quakers or Puritans got very far in Virginia.
