About John Sweet (Swete)

John, born in 1557, became a Roman Catholic priest, who was later arrested and imprisoned for continuing religious services in secret, after Henry VIII banned Roman Catholics from England.

He was later freed and went to France for time.

It appears he did marry & have children:

The will of John Sweete of Modbury dated 28 July 1613 and proved 4 June 1614 gives bequests to his son Adrian Sweete, son-in-law John Neale and wife Alice and their children, daughter Agnes [widow of Hugh Woolcott] and her children, and "To the poor of Modbury Town 2 pillows & 2 coverlets, which I had from my brother Robert S."
