    • ||||He Graduated Queen's College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1605, and graduated there in 1609 with a Master of Arts degree. First ordained a Deacon by the Bishop of Lincoln, he becameCurate of Bennington, Hertfordshire in 1607 and Curate of Parish Church at Egerton, Kent about 1611.
      In 1623 he leaves Egerton and renounces his church orders, siding with the cause of the Independants. He was called to succeed Rev. Henry Jacob as Pastor of the First Independant Church inSouthwark, London in 1624. But trouble with the larger church awaited him, for in 1632 Bishop Laud's warrant officer invades the home where Rev. Lothropp and about 50 of his flock weresecretly worshipping. He was taken to Clink Prison, Newgate, London, on April 22, 1632. He visited his dying wife, Hannah, briefly in 1633. Early in 1634 all but Lothropp were released onbail; he, the leader of the Independant group, was deemed too dangerous to be set at liberty. On April 24, 1634 his petition for liberty to go into foreign exile was granted.
      He arrived in America aboard the Griffin. On January 19, 1634 he was chosen Pastor in Scituate, Massachussetts.
