(EBOOK/PDF) [The Rainborowes] ↠ Adrian Tinniswood
To look intohunt down Interesting perspective on early settlement in Charlestown and area Civil War a little confusing to me Not enough background The back and forth of the transatlantic pilgrims of these times were incredible But there are two things that threw a wrench in my reading First being the monotony of the name dropping and secondly all the Old England towns villages and cities just way too much to take in I was expecting a detailed description of the family Rainborowe alone and their contributions toward the building of NEW ENGLAND not all the other people and places in OLD ENGLAND Their names were put forth only a handful of times What "I did enjoy were the descriptions of the religious depictions some of "did enjoy were the descriptions of the religious depictions some of I d not known before Such as the ways a person was admitted into a congregation As if it were a test of your worth Another being the childbirth situations and the mortality rates of those times I found some portrayals put forth very fascinating I left
the book though not knowing truly who the Rainborowes were myself Thomas and William s lives were somewhat described and book though not knowing truly who the Rainborowes were myself Thomas and William s lives were somewhat described and death was a moment of interest in the story But that was clearly all I could lean from the book This definitely worth a read The author covers a lot of the Rainsborrowe family history in much The Light Between Oceans great details than I had know I liked the parts about the kinsmen who came back and served in the New Model Army and the reasons for it I learnt about Thomas Irish adventures which had proved challenging to find Also Judith Rainsborrowe and her life in Massachusetts with her family Maybe not enough about Richard Rainsborrowe the son later history who some claim became one of the Muggletonian Not a detailed biography nor full history this was nonetheless an interesting snapshot of the time period The author frames the story around the eponymous family They play a relatively prominent role in some of the key developments in the English speaking world in the first half of the 17th century from the settlement of Boston to the English Civil War It seems the family had little impact on history post Civil War on either side of the Atlantic and it could be argued that while they took part in key moments they rarely played the pivotal role in any they do form aood anchor for the story Brilliant portrait of key members of a 17th century family and some of their connectionsRainborowes played. The period between 1630 and 1660 was one of the most tumultuous in Western history These three decades witnessed the birth of English America and in the mother country a vicious civil war that rent the very fabric of English social political and religious life It was an era of death and new beginnings and at its heart was one remarkable family the Rainborowes In The Rainborowes acclaimed historian Adrian Tinniswood tells the story of this all but forgotten clan for the very first time showing how the family bridged two worlds as they struggled to build a odly community for themselves and their kin The Rainborowes'. ,

a family I had never heard of before and how instrumental "They Were On Both "
were on both of the Atlantic but the book ot weighed down in the details at times and I had trouble keeping track of the many people in the book While interesting I don t think it s the book for me The Rainborowes ets 2 stars Note A free book from GoodreadsThe Rainborowes is a serious compelling narrative on a period of history that is little known "to most readers The name Rainborrowes meant something in marine society during the period between 1630 and 1660 The research for "most readers The name Rainborrowes meant something in marine society during the period between 1630 and 1660 The research for book seems impeccable It s a tale of the family and their far reaching influence from William Rainborrow as a rich marine officer his rise to Parliament and then focuses on his descendants Details emerge of New England life and the reign of Charles I of England and his demands A vivid picture is described in words for the reader to image what it was like living in this time periodOne tends to think once people migrated to the New World they stayed and developed a life for themselves and their family Tunniswood showed clearly this was not true People traveled back and forth between the colonies and England for many reasons I was lucky enough to win this book in the Goodreads iveawayFascinating book about a fascinating family that was involved in both the settling of the US and major event in England and the United Kingdom They held major political and military roles and then just disappear from historyI never heard of the Rainborrowes though I had heard of Gov Winthrop of MA and many of the other names mentioned in the colonies The writing became a bit dry and a little confusing at times because of the complex familial connections but the overall story kept my interest I learned many things about the colonies and English history I never knew I really enjoyed this book if you are interested in the Great Migration or the English Civil War it is a very The Damascened Blade (Joe Sandilands,

Eir homeland for New England where their dreams of liberty and euality were much closer to being realized Following the Rainborowes from hectic London shipyards to remote Aegean islands from the muddy streets of Boston to the battles of the English Civil War Tinniswood reveals the indelible marks they left on America and England and the profound and irrevocable changes these thirty years had on the family and their fellow Englishmen in Europe and America A feat of historical reporting The Rainborowes spans oceans and Sds/Wuo, Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground Organization

I had taken so I could keep better track of everything I think me not keeping up with everything was pretty much my fault since I didn t pay as much attention as I could have I did find myself oing back a few pages a few times because I felt like I missed something importantI think another reason why I have mixed feelings is that I wasn t expecting a book about the family and how they fit in to what was The Invisible Dirty Old Man
going on around them While it is the best way to talk about this very large family I think I was expecting about them I liked some of the details about life in New England especially some of the details about the churches they attended but there were times when the bookot bogged down in the details I think the thing I liked the most about The Rainborowes is that I was reminded of how there are people and families throughout history that played a really important part in things and yet they don t An American Methodology
get the recognition they deserve The Rainborowes also felt a little over the place and just when Iot used to reading about one side of the Atlantic the book would switch locations and we d be on "the other side of the Atlantic It did seem pretty linear but there "
other side of the Atlantic It did seem pretty linear but there something non linear about it at the same timeFinal Thoughts I m not sure what else to say about The Rainborowes It is an interesting look Patriarch William was a shipmaster and merchant whose taste for adventure and profit drew him into the expanding transatlantic traffic between England and its colonies in the New World Eventually two of his daughters settled in the Massachusetts Bay Colony marrying into the upper echelons of New England society Back in England meanwhile William Rainborowe's sons threw themselves behind the English parliament in its rebellion against King Charles I So too did many New World settlers who returned to England to fight for the parliamentary cause When the monarchy was restored in 1660 many of these revolutionaries uit th.
