Robert Sweet

In 1639 more scandalous behavior was found at Jamestown in the situation of Robert Sweet, gentleman, who was granted a patent in 1628, and was ordered to appear in the church of the parish in which he resided, wearing a white sheet, according to the English ecclesiastical laws. The other party, a woman, received a sound whipping.
