'Jacob Morrell

was a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers).

Quakers were not well liked by Puritans. In 1657, a stringent

law was passed in Salisbury against harboring "any of the cursed sect of Quakers."

Violators were subject to a fine of 40 schillings. 

Harboring a Quaker in your house from the rain for few a minutes was illegal.

Jacob was presumably an outcast from the ordinarily Puritan environment of Salisbury,

which must be why so few vital records for this family can be found.
