Favorite Ancestors: Gov. Thomas Prence

Prence was a longtime governor of the Plymouth Colony. For whatever reason, he had an intense dislike for Quakers. So, of course, one of his daughters, Elizabeth, married a Quaker - Arthur Howland, Jr. The Howland family was a thorn in the side of the governor. Papa even had his daughter jailed for not paying church tithes. One happy family!
