Original antique portrait print


Hugh Peter (or Peters) (1598 - 1660) was a Puritan preacher. In 1635, Peter accompanied Sir Henry Vane to New England. He became minister at Salem, Massachusetts, in 1636. Although he became involved in religious disputes against Vane, Peter proved to be a popular minister. He was involved in the civil administration of Salem and became one of the first governors of Harvard College. In 1641, he returned to England. He supported the Parliamentary cause during the English Civil War and was a chaplain in the New Model Army. In 1660, shortly after the Restoration he was executed as a regicide because his sermons were seen as giving succour to those directly involved in the trial and execution of Charles I. Slight soiling in margins, one foxing spot.
