A gathered people

Elizabeth Halhead was married to the much-travelled, much-imprisoned Friend Miles Halhead (1614?–pre 1681). Before she too became a Quaker she is reputed to have said, I would to God I had married a drunkard, I might have found him at the alehouse; but I cannot tell where to find my husband. Faithfulness to God’s call was not convenient, and the cost was often borne by families.
