The church of Sarah's baptism

Sarah Haffenden was baptized at Tenterden on 10 Feb 1588/89. Although this profile does not state the name of the church, it is probable that it was St. Mildred's (Anglican) Church. The history section of that church's website states the following which is relevant to Sarah's history: "The history of “non-conformity” in Tenterden is a major and extensive one. Within a few decades of the development around the 1370s, by John Wyclife at Oxford, of the doctrines later known as “Lollardy”, there were significant numbers of people in Tenterden who ascribed to doctrines regarded as unorthodox. Moreover, following the Reformation of the 1540s to 1560s, there were many who rejected not only Roman ways, but were unhappy with the English church. We know that Tenterden families joined the 17th century exodus to the New World (notably to Massachusetts)… ."
