Rowley Inc.

By Philip_H
Part of a traditional stained glass window at St. Peter's church, Rowley, East Yorkshire, England, but with the colours digitally inverted to give it a modern contemporary feel.

The window 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 emigrating 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.
