Trip to England – September 2020

There are SO many places slated to visit in England! We will “walk in the footsteps” of our Tenney Ancestors, from where they lived, worked, worshiped and departed for America. We are talking about stepping back into the 16th century!

pic1Great Limber, Lincolnshire was (and remains) heavily agricultural; even back in the mid and late Middle Ages, the area was the food basket of England. St. Peter’s Church, Limber Magnum, was built shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. (Yes, Tenney’s have connections to William the Conqueror!). Rowley, Yorkshire also has immense growing fields as part of England’s breadbasket (Think of the Moors of Yorkshire).

pic2Rowley Parish is where Rev. Ezekiel Rogers and his followers, including Thomas & Ann worshiped (and met?). St. Peter’s Church, said to have been built by Rev. Rogers in 1621, also has the Ezekiel Rogers Window” given by the citizens of the First Congregational Church of Rowley, MA and Tenney’s! The “old Rectory” is now Rowley Manor, a Bed & Breakfast and a beautiful site for lunch.
