The Familists or Family of Love were followers of Henry
Niclae in Munster who borrowed from the Clan MacThoy's
Clerics of Luv the
idea that Heaven & Hell were found in the world and that
people might reclaim the innocence found in Eden.
Chronicles of the
day describe the Clan as being rampant in the local forests
were masterless men often dwelled
naughty and idle persons dwel there and breed the spawn of
vagabonds and rogues of very lewd lives and conversations.
the Clan was involved in a Papal Indulgences counterfeiting
ring. The scheme was uncovered by Martin Luther in
Saxony, but not before eight Public Houses and three Houses of Ill Fame had been
constructed and dedicated in His Holiness' name.
MacThoy, Proprietress of a Publick House who met Isaac Newton
