East Yorkshire’s
‘Pilgrim Fathers’
The opening concert commemorates
the Pilgrim Fathers who sailed on the
Mayflower in 1620. Eighteen years later
another group of Puritans led by the
Revd Ezekiel Rogers, rector of Rowley
near Beverley, left East Yorkshire for
America. They settled in Massachusetts
and founded the town of Rowley,
thirty miles north-east of Boston. This
illustrated talk by David Neave will
explore who our local ‘pilgrims’ were,
where they came from, why they chose
to leave their homes, families and
friends, and how they coped with the
hardships they faced in their new life

An adapted workshop was used for Mass from 1856, although Mass was being celebrated in the priest’s residence ten years before that and probably earlier, again in various houses. A small but attractive church was built in 1898 (architects Smith, Brodrick & Lowther) and substantially extended and rebuilt in 1999.
