• Background Information. 673
Henry Tupper was a yeoman of Bury, Sussex, England, and the father of Thomas Tupper, the immigrant. He was a Puritan who followed the preaching of Robert Brown. Henry went with Robert Browne and Robert Harrison to Zeeland Holland in 1582. After a break between Browne and Harrison, he returned to England, settling in Lincolnshire, which was then notoriously Puritan in sympathies. Henry Tupper was not a fanatic Puritan, and maintained friendly relationships with families outside the Puritan circle. One such family was the Geere family who were neighbors in Sussex. Through William Geere, a merchant of London, Henry Tupper met Thomas Hampton, corwainer, of St. Sepulcher's, London, to whom he apprenticed his son Thomas from 1592-1599. For these seven years, Thomas Tupper, worked in the leather business and learned the trade of shoemaking.
