Mayflower Passengers[edit]

I've deleted the following paragraph.

See also[edit]

Several Mayflower passengers hailed from Henlow. In St. James Anglican Church, there is the baptismal where Elisabeth Tilley was christened. She was the daughter of Joan Hurst and John Tilley. They left for the New World when she was 13 in Nov. 1620, leaving behind Rob Tilley, 14 years old. John Tilley and his brother, Edward Tilley were 2 of the original signers of the Mayflower Compact. Ironically enough, there is a Howland St. in Henlow, but no Tilley St. They were all Separatists, members of a Protestant group who decried the 'popery' and ceremony of the English church. John Howland, who later married Elisabeth Tilley, was from Nottinghamshire. Henlow has one of the last thatched roofs in England, they having been outlawed due to fire hazards. It is a beautiful town.


There are no citations, it is factually incorrect and introduces matters of opinion.

The street in Henlow is the John Howland Close. Thatched roofs are still common in England and have not been outlawed. Beautiful - well perhaps it is - but that is in the eye of the beholder. It's also not really a town either. The Anglican church is dedicated to St Mary, but perhaps the writer has a different church in mind.Plingsby (talk) 15:57, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
