In the turmoil that followed King Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries, all those whose religious belief differed from those in power suffered persecution. During Queen Mary's reign Protestants (like John Hooper and John Rogers who published an English version of the bible) were imprisoned in the Clink Gaol before being taken out to be burnt.

In Elizabeth I's time it was the Catholics such as John Jones who were persecuted as well as Protestant dissenters such as Henry Barrows and John Greenwood, whose ideas inspired the Pilgrim Fathers to seek religious freedom in the New World. Picture taken at the Clink Museum, Bankside London.
