Brookhouse Farm Birth place of Henry Wood
Brookhouse Farm Birth place of Henry Wood
Henry Wood, a Quaker from the Bury in the North-West of England, left Great Britain due to religious persecution.
He was incarcerated in Lancaster gaol for practising as a Quaker but when he was released he left his home in the village of Tottington, near Bury, and sailed to America with his family on the ship 'Lyon' to set up a community in the new world where he and his family could practice his religion freely.
His surname and his home town went to make up the name of the City he founded - Woodbury in the United States of America.
By 1715 Woodbury had become a Quaker religious centre and was a thriving hamlet at the onset of the American Revolution.
In 2000, the Borough of Bury, England, and the City of Woodbury were twinned as part of millennium celebrations in both countries.
