In 1664 Sir John Wittewronge recalled that exactly 100 years had passed since his grandfather escaped religious persecution in Holland to enjoy freedom in England. He marked the occasion by writing a family history for his children which, written in his neat hand, makes exciting reading. The Wittewronge grant of arms, in French, dates from 1648.
