John Braithwaite

1633 - 1660

Braithwaite was probably born in 1633, as there is an entry in the Cartmel registers of the baptism on 24 March 1633 of John, son of James Braithwaite of Newton.

George Fox records in his 'Journal' that, being at Newton-in-Cartmel in 1652, where he attempted to preach to the people after service, he spoke to a youth whom he noticed in the chapel taking notes. The young man was John Braithwaite, who afterwards became his earnest follower. He published three tracts in support of Fox's doctrines:
