The Brownists Covenenticle

Or an assembly of Brownists, Separatists and Non Conformists as they met together in a private house to hear a sermon. From a broadside published by John Walker in 1641. Looking at the clothes though I’d not rely on this image as particularly current for the 1640s. Woodcuts tended to get recycled over many years!
