Anne Hutchinson 1591-1643

Anne was at first part of the Puritans in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. She was later expelled, and joined with the Quakers. She was close friends with Mary Dyer. 

“During the Puritan era, Anne Hutchinson, became influential in Boston, and opened her home to large classes of women. It is estimated tat as many as eight overflowed to the doorsteps of her house, at a time when Boston had a population of roughly 1,000 people. These meetings grew rapidly, and soon men, also began to attend. Among her loyal followers was Henry Vane, who served for a short time as governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Within two years of her arrival from England, she had the strongest consistency of any leader in the entire colony. Her large following, coupled with her strong exegetical and homiletical skills, deep Christian commitment and insightful understanding of spiritual truths, may have incurred the jealousy of several New England ministers, who became uncomfortable enough with her successes that she was accused of heresy and banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1638.” – Richard Riss
