    Notes:

    He came to America from England aboard the ship Fortune which arrived 9 November 1621. He was a Deputy to the General Court of Plymouth Colony 1639, 1641, and 1644.
    Eldest son of the pilgrim William Brewster, he moved from Stonington and became clerk of Winthrop's New London, or "Pequit" plantation. In 1650 he established the first Indian trading post on land that Chief Uncas had given him, across the river from Uncas' Shantok Fort, also known as "Brewster's Neck", located in the town of Preston. (see Burpee, Vol II, p. 607)
    Calkin's History of Norwich points out, though, that he was a little hasty in setting up business, as he had not procured a license from Connecticut. The General Court, in May 1650,noted:

    "Whereas Mr. Jonathan Brewster hath set up a trading-house at
    Mohigen, this Courte declares that they cannott but judge the
    thinge very disorderly, nevertheless considering his condition, they are content hee
    should proceed therein for the present, and till they see
    cause to the contrary."
    From this point on, Brewster's Neck and Trading Cove became the principal places of traffic with the Mohegan Indians.
    In May, 1657, he was selected as an Assistant for the town of Pequett.

  1. 8.  William Brewster, Elder was born 1566, Scrooby or Doncaster, Yorkshire England (son of William Brewster and Mary (Simkinson) Smythe); died 10 Apr 1644, Plymouth, MA.

    Notes:

    After receiving his degree from Cambridge University, he became the private secretary to Sir William Davison, Secretary of State to Queen Elizabeth. William accompanied Davison on his mission to the Netherlands. Subsequently, he succeeded his father as the Postmaster at Scrooby, an office of high responsibility and influence. He held the post until 1607.

    William has been dubbed the leader of the Puritan exodus to New England. He withdrew from the Church, and helped create a Congregationalist society which met Sundays in the drawing room ofhis manor house at Scrooby. In late 1607 or early 1608, William and the Pilgrims went to Amsterdam. They found the English exiles who had earlier arrived there were fiercely involved in doctrinal controversies, and they decided to search further.

    They traveled to Leyden in 1609, and remained there for eleven years. William opened a publishing house, primarily for theological works. But the group, now over 300 strong, did not wish to be simply absorbed by another country; the wanted to preserve their English language and traditions. In short, they wished to build a new Christian state. Recognizing that this was nearlyimpossible on the already staked-out Europe, it was decided to go to the Atlantic coast of America.

    After several false starts, the Mayflower, with William aboard, set sail for America on September 6, 1620. They arrived in Plymouth, Cape Cod bay, on November 9th. He was the oldest of the Mayflower passengers who celebrated the first Thanksgiving.

    William Bradford describes William Brewster thusly:
    "he was wise and discreet and well spoken, having a grave and deliberate utterance, of a very cheerful spirit, very sociable and pleasant amongst his friends, of an humble and modest mind, of a peaceable disposition, undervaluing himself and his own abilities...inoffensive and innocent in his live and conversation...he was tender-hearted, and compassionate of such as were in misery, but especially of such as had been of good estate and rank, and were fallen into want and poverty, either for goodness and religion's sake, or by the injury and oppression of others..."

    Elder Brewster's biography is as good a place as any to comment on the first Thanksgiving in October, 1621. It was really a unique event; the Pilgrims did not celebrate the next year, or anytime thereafter. The Thanksgiving holiday was not born until President Lincoln declared as such in 1863.

    The Indian king Massasoit with about 90 of his men were the guest for three days. They brought five deer to the feast, and four of the Pilgrim men hunted and brought back enough fowl(turkey, geese, pheasant, and other birds) to feed the group for nearly a week. Beer was the primary beverage for everyone, including children [source: The Thanksgiving Primer by the Plimouth Plantation, 1991]
