    I have really mixed feelings about The Rainborowes It is interesting to see this family in the context of a very tumultuous time, and on two different continents But I also felt like the book had a jumble of names and dates and events that was hard for me to keep track of It just seems like the Rainborowes had a lot going on and were really involved in important events, and I wish I had taken notes so I could keep better track of everything I think me not keeping up with everything was prett I have really mixed feelings about The Rainborowes It is interesting to see this family in the context of a very tumultuous time, and on two different continents But I also felt like the book had a jumble of names and dates and events that was hard for me to keep track of It just seems like the Rainborowes had a lot going on and were really involved in important events, and I wish I had taken notes so I could keep better track of everything I think me not keeping up with everything was pretty much my fault, since I didn t pay as much attention as I could have I did find myself going back a few pages a few times, because I felt like I missed something important.I think another reason why I have mixed feelings is that I wasn t expe...

    The back and forth of the transatlantic pilgrims of these times were incredible But there are two things that threw a wrench in my reading First being the monotony of the name dropping, and secondly, all the Old England towns, villages, and cities. just way too much to take in I was expecting adetailed description of the family Rainborowe alone and their contributions toward the building of NEW ENGLAND, not all the other people and places in OLD ENGLAND...

    Note A free book from Goodreads.The Rainborowes is a serious, compelling narrative on a period of history that is little known to most readers The name Rainborrowes meant something in marine society during the period between 1630 and 1660 The research for this book seems impeccable It s a tale of the family and their far reaching influence from William Rainborrow as a rich marine officer, his rise to Parliament, and then focuses on his desc...

    This definitely worth a read The author covers a lot of the Rainsborrowe family history, in much great details than I had know I liked the parts about the kinsmen who came back and served in the New Model Army and the reasons for it I learntabout Thomas Irish adventures, which had proved challenging to find Also Judith Rainsborrowe and her life in Massachusetts with her family Maybe not enough about Richard Rainsborrowe, the son, later history, who some claim became one of...

    I really couldn t resist buying a biography of my favourite civil wars figure Thomas Rainsborough or Rainborowe Of course, as the cover makes clear, Thomas Rainsborough is not the sole focus of the text and in fact much whole the Rainborowe Rainsborough clan in the 17th century are covered I therefore fully expected to simply skim through the rest of the book until it reached Thomas However I found that the other lives, particularly Thomas pirate hunting father William Rainborowe, were equ I really couldn t resist buying a biography of my favourite civil wars figure Thomas Rainsborough or Rainborowe Of course, as the cover makes clear, Thomas Rainsborough is not the sole focus of the text and in fact much whole the Rainborowe Rainsborough clan in the 17th century are covered I therefore fully expected to simply skim through the rest of the book until it reached Thomas However I found that the other lives, pa...

    I really enjoyed this book if you are interested in the Great Migration or the English Civil War, it is a very good view of both through a small group of people, giving us a different view than most histories The author explains what records he uses and what they explain and account, which I found good, letting you see where he is drawing his conclusions from People traveled back and forth between the colonies and England, and this book shows how common that interaction really was The beginn I really enjoyed this book if you are interested in the Great Migration or the English Civil War, it is a very good view of both through a small group of people, giving us a different view than most histories The author explains what records he uses and what they explain and account, which I found good, letting you see where he is drawing his conclusions from People traveled back and forth between the colonies and ...

    Not a detailed biography nor full history, this was nonetheless an interesting snapshot of the time period The author frames the story around the eponymous family They play a relatively prominent role in some of the key developments in the English speaking world in the first half of the 17th century from the settlement of Boston to the English Civil War It seems the family had little impact on history post Civil War on either side of the Atlantic and it could be argued that while they took pa Not a detailed biography nor full history, this was nonetheless an interesting snapshot of the time period The author frames the stor...
