Saint Peter's Church, Rowley
Saint Peter's Church, Rowley
A fine old church which once served the village of Rowley, which no longer exists. In the early 1600's, King Charles issued the 'Book of Sports' which gave authority for the 'common people' to practice certain sports and other leisure activities on the Sabbath after they had attended church services. As they worked on all the other six days of the week, this was their only opportunity! But this offended those who took the Sabbath as being 'sacrosant'. Thus the Rev. Ezekiel Rogers persuaded the villagers to emigrate en masse in 1638 and they founded the town of Rowley which is now a suburb of Ipswich, Massachusetts.
