Martha Wing Robinson, 1918


Martha Wing Robinson, 1918



Aerial view of part of Sandwich, Massachusetts.   ( see chapter 1 )

The site of Daniel Wing's home is designated by the lower circle. On this property is a monument to his memory which reads in part: "Daniel Wing.....bought this land.... in 1641 where he lived and died. He was an original member of the first Friends' Meeting in America.... and suffered greeat persecution at the hands of the Plymouth government in the cause of religious liberty." The upper circle indicates Christopher's Hollow where Daniel Wing and his fellow quakers worshipped in secret to avoid arrest. 


The Meeting House , 1640,  New Haven , Connecticut     ( see chapter 1 )

Here it was that William and Elizabeth Tuttle came to worship on the Sabbath at the beating of the first and second drum. "Sister Tuttil" then took her place in the "5 Seate" "in the midle" section reserved "for the weomens seates," while "Mr. Tutle" went to the "1 Seate" "in the crosse seates."  Here they intently listened to their beloved pastor, the "holy and famous Mr. John Davenport," who "did all that was possible to render the church of New Haven like the New Jerusalem."   (This information comes from The New Haven Records, pp. 302, 303. The spelling of names was of little concern in those days, and consequently this accounts for the variations in the writing of "Tuttle." This same principle applies to the spelling of "Bachiler" in the text, page 1.)

Martha Wing Robinson was the niece and namesake of Mrs. Blair. It was Uncle William who made the revolutionizing statement: "Mattie, something seems to tell me the Lord wants you to live and work just for Himself."  Aunt Martha taught a large Bible class in Vancouver, B.C., until within three years of her death at the age of ninety-nine.
