This chapter discusses the movement against the Puritan religion that was rampant in East Anglia during the 16th and early 17th centuries. The first notable figure to move against the Puritans was Parkhurst, who favoured the Protestant religion above all other available religions in the country, including Catholicism. When Parkhurst died, he was succeeded by Edmund Freke, who formed an alliance with Sir Thomas Cornwallis. The last decade of Queen Elizabeth I's reign saw the fading of religion as a major divisive issue among the ruling gentry of Suffolk.
