  Early Stuart Libels: Miscellaneous (1628-1640)
Libelling in the 1630s was informed by apparent changes in both literary and political cultures.
Nonetheless, it is almost incontrovertible that poetry of the 1630s, at least as it is represented in verse miscellanies, rarely engaged with politics in the explicit manner that is familiar from a reading of earlier libels.
While it would be a huge overstatement to claim that there was no political conflict in the 1630s, it is less controversial to state that there were far fewer immediate occasions or contexts for libels than in previous decades.

 Plymouth Colony Grows
The population continued to be predominantly of English origin although there were some colonists from other European countries and, by the 1670s, a few colonists of African origin in Plymouth.
In the 1620s and 1630s groups began to move and found new towns : Duxbury, Marshfield and Scituate to the north, Taunton, Rehoboth and Bridgewater to the west, and Eastham and Barnstable on Cape Cod.
In the 1630s, several thousand Puritans came from England to the Massachusetts Bay Colony north of Plymouth Colony and founded Boston.

 The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Works of Art: European Paintings
This magnificent portrait of Rubens, his second wife, Helena Fourment, and one of their five children has usually been dated on stylistic grounds to the late 1630s.
Helena became the model and the inspiration for many paintings by Rubens dating from the 1630s, particularly those dealing with themes of ideal beauty or love.
The present composition was considerably revised during execution to shift the emphasis from Rubens, as the dominant half of a courtly couple, to Helena, as ideal wife and mother.

 Powell's Books - The New Encyclopedia of American Scandal by George Childs Kohn
It is updated to incorporate the peccadillos of the past decade; and the 455 alphabetical entries add such juicy bits as O.J., the Olympics, Tailhook, the Eric and Lyle Menedez murder trial, and of course Monica.
The coverage extends back to the 1630s, and includes Susan B. Anthony's conviction for felonious voting, Joseph McCarthy, and Charles Ponzi.
Covering people and events from the 1630s to the present day, The New Encyclopedia of American Scandal offers more than 455 A-to-Z entries on such topics as dirty politics, white-collar scams, botched cover-ups, tawdry love affairs, and despicable acts of corruption.

 Notes on the two John Drakes in New England in the 1630s
Anderson and Richardson, at least, hotly contest the "traditional" conclusion that the John Drake of Tauton, Plymouth/Windsor, CT is the same John Drake who applied to be free in Oct. 1630 in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
They assert that there were two John Drakes in New England in the 1630s and that John Drake of Windsor was not the John Drake of Wiscomb and, therefore, was not a member of the Drake family of Ashe.
Because neither of the two approaches discussed immediately above has born fruit, I have — at least temporarily — abandoned my effort to establish the correctness of the traditional link between John Drake of Windsor, CT and the Drakes of Ashe, Musbury parish, co. Devon.
