Is anything known about Henry Hibbert's activities during the civil war period?
I have an ancestor, John Pout, from Sandwich, Kent, who in 1657 left ten shillings to "Mr Henry Hibert, Minister of Trinity Church in Kingston upon Hull" as well as a further 10 shillings to the poor of that parish.
Needless to say I'm wondering why.
I gather Hibbert wrote several books.Does anyone know what they were about?And where did he stand in the Civil War ?Apparently the mayor of Hull declared for the parliamentarian side at the start of the war.Does the appointment at Trinity Church at Hull indicate Henry Hibbert's politics and religious views?
Obviously if my ancestor left him money , he approved of him and his views and either knew him or was impressed by his work.
