John Lothrop's church in England, as we gather from what Mr Loftrop wrote in his church records." So that when Mr Lothrop came to this country, Henry Cobb was among the very first who came to his support and joined him in the planting and establishing of a new town and church." (Lothrop was a Puritan minister in London in 1623, was imprisoned, and on his release came to America, arriving 18 Sep 1634 and settling at Barnstable.) Larry Sharp on Prodigy reports Henry was born in 1596 and emigrated on the Mayflower II on Easter Monday in 1629 to Salem, Massachusetts. (Also see "Cobb Chronicles, an Overview of the Clan," John E.
