  • Name Caleb MOODY  [2, 3, 4
    • Son of Caleb Moody and Judith Bradbury

      Imprisoned in 1688 for resisting the Dominion of New England in America under Governor Sir Edmund Andros

      "During the tyrannical administration of Andros, Mr. Moody was imprisoned five weeks, for daring to speak and act like a freeman; his account of which is graphically given in Coffin's History of Newbury, p. 150. The chief offence seemd to be his having in his possession a paper, the title of which was,
      'New England alarmed,
      To rise and be armed,
      Let not papist you charme,
      I mean you no harme,' &c.
      The purport of the paper was to give notice to the people of the danger they were in, being under the sad circumstances of an arbitrary government."
