Edward Robinson of Newport, R.I. 1655

There was an Edward Robinson of Newport, Rhode Island in 1655. Three whole towns from Massachusetts had moved into Connecticut. They migrated from Salem and Boston to get away from the spiritual and political tyranny. In 1643, three towns were laid out in Rhode Island; New Port, Warwick, and Portsmouth.

Our oral history is that our ancestor came over not on the Mayflower but a ship after that. Could this be an ancestor, or was ours a part of this tyranny in mind and spirit. It's interesting to see that cities developed around political and religious affilliations.
