Salisbury (Wiltshire, England)
Salisbury (in the documents Sarum), the seat of one of the five Anabaptist (Baptist) congregations of England, who on 12 November 1626, wrote a letter to Hans de Ries and Reinier Wybrands and their (Waterlander) Mennonite congregations in Holland, in which they declared that they had read with full agreement the confession of faith by Hans de Ries and Lubbert Gerritsz, and made a proposal to form a union with the Dutch Waterlanders. The union, however, did not come about. (See also Coventry and England).
