(1575–1648), English Puritan clergyman, did not emigrate to the American colonies but helped found both the Dorchester Company (1623) and the Massachusetts Bay Company (1629). His tract The Planters Plea (1630) shows the economic and social value of emigration and furnishes a pleasant account of the colony's early history.
