Who was Robert Browne, why did he get the nick-name ‘Troublechurch’ and what was his link with the Pilgrim Fathers? This account of Browne’s family background, life in the Stamford area, his religious teachings and his ‘Brownist’ followers in the England of Queen Elizabeth I, King James I and King Charles I is our answer to those questions. We hope you enjoy reading it; we enjoyed writing it and illustrating it!
