Building a New Jerusalem

Yale University Press

This chapter outlines John Davenport's first clash with authority, which came as a result of his involvement in one of the most significant puritan efforts of this period to reform the church. Davenport had numerous contacts from whom he learned of the struggle on the Continent. His concern for international Protestantism was also reflected in his support for John Dury's efforts to unite Christendom. Dury was the son of a Scottish minister who had been banished in 1606 and had settled in the Netherlands as minister to Scottish and English Presbyterians in Leiden. In England, Davenport served as a member of a committee to organize the policies adopted by the company during its early meetings. He played a key role in supporting the proposal made by John Winthrop and other investors that they emigrate to the colony themselves and bring the charter with them.
