Origins

Excommunicated for Scandalous Evils

From http://ancestorbios.blogspot.com/2017/11/excommunicated-for-scandalous-evils.html?m=1

It seems that early on, Henry was at odds with the religious community. New Haven town records show that in 1644, he had been excommunicated for scandalous evils and he was asking to be readmitted to the church. There is no further description of what he had actually done to have this action taken against him. On the morning of August 11th, Henry had to stand outside the meetinghouse during church services, then after the congregation had left, he was allowed to come inside to plead his case to the elders. He admitted to breaking rules multiple times, but suggested he had been tempted by Satan, and that he wanted to rejoin the church. When the elders told him he would have to wait a week for a ruling, Henry got agitated, and he let some words fall which had the appearance of discontent." But he soon apologized, and one week later, he was absolved and set free from the sentence of excommunication, and his membership in the church was restored.

"Henry Glover of New Haven was married to Helena Russell, the sister of William Russell. They had 7 children: Mary, Mercy, Hannah, John, Abigail, Abigail, and Sarah. Henry died September 2, 1689."
"Anderson estimates, based on the birth dates of their children, that Henry and Helena were married about 1641, and that Henry was born about 1616. He believes that this Henry Glover of New Haven was not the Henery Glover, (Henry Glover), who enrolled at Ipswich as a passenger for New England on the Elizabeth in 1634 at the age of 24. Anderson believes that the "other" Henry would have been about 30-31 at the time of marriage, rather old at that time. Additionally, there is no evidence connecting the other Henry Glover to New Haven. Anderson concludes that there were three distinct Henry Glovers in New England in that time frame."

Henry Glover came from Ipswich. England, in the ship "Elizabeth," and removed to New Haven, Conn., where he died 1689.

NOTE: the Great Migrations editors have concluded that the New Haven Henry is NOT the one who sailed on the Elizabeth.
