English colonial government officials et al. in Colonial New England - June, 1662

from 'America and West Indies: August 1678', in Calendar of State Papers Colonial, America and West Indies: Volume 10, 1677-1680, pages 281-286:

"Papers about Captain Breedon" concerning New England. […] When the Commissioners went over [from England] they had different quarters assigned them, but chose to lodge at Captain Breedon's. They had exposed their commission about a week before to the Governor and Council, but as they were beginning with the case of one Deane (about a ship seized contrary to the Act of Navigation) there came a rabble of about 100 before the door, a sort of herald and a trumpeter, proclaiming a prohibition to the Commissioners to proceed or to any to attend at their peril.
