“The Exeter Combination or agreement for self-government, which straightway enacted by-laws for capital punishment based on biblical interpretations, was dated 5 June 1639. It was signed by 35 men, nearly half of them by their marks, whose names were written out by Augustine Storre and Edward Rishworth. At least five of the signers were Wheelwright family connections. The signers presently ****cuttered themselves, from the Kennebec to Rhode Island or farther, only three remaining at Exeter. Five accompanied Mr. Wheelwright to Wells, of whom one remained there.
