This section of stained glass window at St. Peter's church, Rowley, East Yorkshire, England, commemorates the journey taken by Rev. Ezekiel Rogers and his company in 1638. Rev. Rogers had been the non-conformist vicar of St. Peter's Church for 17 years before assembling a group of fellow puritans and immigrating to the American colonies as part of "The Great Migration." They journeyed to New England aboard the "John" of London sailing from Hull, with a stop over in London, before arriving at the Massachusetts Bay Colony during the second half of 1638. Making port in Salem, Massachusetts, they made that their home during the harsh winter of 1638. The first printing press brought to America came on board the ship with them, with the printer Stephen Daye. In April 1639, Rogers' company colonized an area between Ipswich and Newbury as the Ezekiel Rogers Plantation. On Sept. 4, 1639, it was incorporated as Rowley, Massachusetts.

Thanks for all the C&C's on my last upload from Holy Island.

Best wishes,
Philip

Not as easy as it looks, it's all too easy to fool the camera's metering with an image like this.....Well done.

A beautiful image, and as Ade says not easy to get such clean clarity perfectly exposed.
