Jacob Morrell was a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers). Quakers were not well liked by Puritans. In 1657, a stringent law was passed in Salisbury against harboring "any of the cursed sect of Quakers." Violators were subject to a fine of 40 schillings. Harboring a Quaker in your house from the rain for few a minutes was illegal. Jacob was presumably an outcast from the ordinarily Puritan environment of Salisbury, which must be why so few vital records for this family can be found. . [7]
