Puritan Trial of a Royalist Family

After the execution of King Charles I, the Puritans under Oliver Cromwell transformed the Kingdom of England into a Commonwealth which was essentially a military dictatorship under the Lord Protector Cromwell, who ruled for life. During this period Puritans continued to migrate to the New World colonies and bring English culture and Puritan educational ideals with them.
