John Worthington (1618-71) was master of Jesus College and Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge. Other Worthingtons were nonconformist ministers: John of Dean Row, and Robert of Mottram-in-Longdendale, who in the 1640′s fought the power of established church. Samuel Worthington was on of the 1st to follow Fox’s Quaker movement to Penn. in America. John’s diary is free to read on line and it’s quite interesting!.
I think that the Samuel Worthington you are talking about is the Samuel “the Quaker” Worthington or Robert “the Quaker” Worthington who landed in West Jersey. My other reply about Samuel applies here, is from my research on that line would indicate, the two Samuel’s are the same Samuel.
Hope that helps. I also hope that if others of confirming or different information that they would post a comment to this Blog Post.
