Person talk:Philip Sherman (1)


Quakerism [28 May 2011]

Philip may have become a Quaker in later life, but was not a Quaker in 1637, nor was Ann Hutchinson. The Quakers grew out of non-conformity and were founded by George Fox in 1652. The first Quakers to arrive in New England came about 1656. Ann Hutchinson, Roger Williams, Philip Sherman et al may have been dissenters before then, but they were not Quakers.--Scot 14:09, 28 May 2011 (EDT)
