REGICIDE IN THE FAMILY – FINDING JOHN DIXWELL

Saturday, June 18, 2022
Hadley Public Library Community Room

Local author Sarah Dixwell Brown discussed and read from her new book about her ancestor John Dixwell, one of the 59 regicides of the tyrannical King Charles I. After the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, Dixwell fled England and lived in Germany. Eventually he joined his fellow regicides William Goffe and Edward Whalley in New England. Although Dixwell wound up in the New Haven Colony, he first spent time with Goffe and Whalley in Hadley, in 1665, at the Reverend John Russell’s home.
