Gloucestershire's Rev. Dr. Robert Harris (D.D.) was raised by godly parents. When he grew up and married a godly woman, he ruled his own house well. First Timothy 3:4. As soon as his children could speak, he taught them to repeat some historical passages of the Holy Scriptures. Even his last will and testament contains much excellent advice to his wife and to his numerous children.

Cornwall's Charles Herle (M.A.) had good ancestors and was born of honourable parents. When an adult, upon the death of Rev. Dr. Twisse, he was chosen Prolocutor (or Moderator) of the Westminster Assembly in 1646. Herle had many choice sayings. One of them was: "Religious families are the surest nurseries of religion."
