As early as the year 1602, several religious people residing near the joining borders of Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, and Yorkshire, together with their pious minsters, being grievously oppressed by courts and cannons, resolved to shake off the yoke of antichristian bondage, and as the Lord's free people, to form themselves by covenant into a church-state, to walk in all his ways according to their best knowledge and endavors, cost them whatever it might.
     in the year 1606, by reason of the distance of their habitations, these people were obliged to assemble in two places and become two distinct churches; over one of which Mr. John Smith was established pastor, and among the others were Mr. Richard Clifton and Mr. John Robinson, two very excellent and worhty preachers.
