During his time there he wrote various controversial tracts with his fellow prisoner Henry Barrowe [1550-1593]. He appears to have been at liberty in 1588, possibly merely the liberty of the prison. When asked by the Bishop of London if he believed in baptism, Greenwood replied that he did. Asked if he did not have a son unbaptised, Greenwood replied that

his son Abel (11½ years old) was unbaptised but he had been in prison and was unable to take his son to a reformed church where he could be baptised according to God's ordnance

Asked if he did not consider the English Church [to be] a church of god, he replied

No

In 1590, Greenwood wrote An Answer to George Gifford's pretended Defence of Read Prayers

He was arrested on 5th December 1592, and in March 1593, he was again arrested together with Henry Barrowe and condemned to death on a charge of

devising and circulating seditious books

Greenwood and Barrowe had been due to be hanged on 24th March 1593 but were reprieved. They were, however, swiftly and secretly taken early to Tyburn and hanged without ceremony on 6th April 1593

The band of pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620 were his followers – they had worshipped in a church he founded - and they founded Boston and believed in the doctrines which he was first to teach

By 1586, Rev Greenwood was the recognised leader of London Separatist Puritans of whom a number had been imprisoned at various times since 1567. Greenwood was arrested in October 1586 and imprisoned at the Clink, Southwark and the following May sent to Fleet Prison. During his time there he wrote various controversial tracts with his fellow prisoner Henry Barrowe [1550-1593]. He appears to have been at liberty in 1588, possibly merely the liberty of the prison. When asked by the Bishop of London if he believed in baptism, Greenwood replied that he did. Asked if he did not have a son unbaptised, Greenwood replied that

his son Abel (11½ years old) was unbaptised but he had been in prison and was unable to take his son to a reformed church where he could be baptised according to God's ordnance

Asked if he did not consider the English Church [to be] a church of god, he replied

No

In 1590, Greenwood wrote An Answer to George Gifford's pretended Defence of Read Prayers

He was arrested on 5th December 1592, and in March 1593, he was again arrested together with Henry Barrowe and condemned to death on a charge of

devising and circulating seditious books

Greenwood and Barrowe had been due to be hanged on 24th March 1593 but were reprieved. They were, however, swiftly and secretly taken early to Tyburn and hanged without ceremony on 6th April 1593

The band of pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620 were his followers – they had worshipped in a church he founded - and they founded Boston and believed in the doctrines which he was first to teach

During his time there he wrote various controversial tracts with his fellow prisoner Henry Barrowe [1550-1593]. He appears to have been at liberty in 1588, possibly merely the liberty of the prison. When asked by the Bishop of London if he believed in baptism, Greenwood replied that he did. Asked if he did not have a son unbaptised, Greenwood replied that

his son Abel (11½ years old) was unbaptised but he had been in prison and was unable to take his son to a reformed church where he could be baptised according to God's ordnance

Asked if he did not consider the English Church [to be] a church of god, he replied

No

devising and circulating seditious books

Greenwood and Barrowe had been due to be hanged on 24th March 1593 but were reprieved. They were, however, swiftly and secretly taken early to Tyburn and hanged without ceremony on 6th April 1593

The band of pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620 were his followers – they had worshipped in a church he founded - and they founded Boston and believed in the doctrines which he was first to teach
