Named for John Wheelwright, a Puritan clergyman in England and America, he is best known for having been banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony during the Antinomian Controversy, and for subsequently establishing the town of Exeter, New Hampshire. Raised in a well to do family, he attended Sussex College where he was a close friend of Oliver Cromwell. He left for Boston in 1636, and although warmly welcomed he soon fell out of favor and was banished from the colony. Wheelwright went north with a group of followers during the harsh winter of 1637–1638, and in April 1638 established the town of Exeter in what would become the Province of New Hampshire. He returned to England in 1655 but after Cromwell’s death, he once again returned to New England and became a minister in Salisbury, Massachusetts, where he died.
