Anne Wentworth, member of a Baptist congregation, became a prophet in the 1670s. She addressed warnings of the wrath of God to the king and the Lord Mayor of London, and published two prophecies of doom and four successive tracts denouncing her husband and the ministers of her church, in heavily biblical prose and sometimes verse.
Milestones
1629/30 The future AW was probably born in Lincolnshire. Bibliographic Citation link.
November 1679 Englands Spiritual Pill, a polemical sectarian pamphlet which AW had been writing for some time, was apparently her final appearance in print. Bibliographic Citation link.
Just before 22 May 1693 Assuming that AW was the woman of that name living in St John's Court, then she died shortly before this date, which was that of her funeral in Clerkenwell. Bibliographic Citation link.
