Along with the first emigrants to these American colonies, there came a strong leaven of the fierce bigotry and proscriptive intolerance which still existed in the old world. The religious denominations which had obtained a prior influence, were disposed to regard the Baptists with an evil eye, and to interpose every possible hinderance to the prevalence of such a name.
