Rev John Ryther

(before 1670 - 27 January 1704)
     Rev John Ryther was born before 1670 in England. He is probably the brother of Christopher Ryther who died in York in 1724 and therefore also sibling of Elizabeth Burnet, Lydia Nuttbrowne (Quaker) and Mary Ryther. He was the son of Rev John Ryther and Margaret Unknown.
The Dictionary of National Biography states: John Ryther (d. 1704), Independent minister, son of John Ryther, served as chaplain on ships trading to the East and West Indies. The journal he kept during his voyages from 1676 to 1681 was given to the antiquarian Ralph Thoresby by William Moult, the Independent minister at Leeds. In 1686 Ryther became minister of the Castle Gate Independent Church in Nottingham. For most of his career he co-operated amicably with the Nottingham Presbyterians. He joined with them in at least two ordinations, and had his children baptized by John Whitlock the elder, of the High Pavement Presbyterian Church. In A Defence of the Glorious Gospel (1703), however, Ryther threatened this harmony by accusing John Barret, the Nottingham Presbyterian, of Arminian errors. He also published a Sermon Preached before the Society of Reformation of Manners (1699). Ryther died at Nottingham on 27 January 1704. The name of Ryther's wife is not known, but his daughter Anne married Robert Kippis and was the mother of Andrew Kippis, the Unitarian divine and biographer. John was issued a marriage license on 20 February 1688 in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire.
Rev John Ryther married Sarah Unknown (Gibbs) on 21 February 1688 in Wilford, Nottinghamshire, England. John was a Presbyterian clergyman at Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. He was probably the John Ryther who died 1704, son of the seaman's preacher John Ryther, who acted as chaplain of merchant ships trading to both the Indies and in 1689 became Minister at the Congregational church in Bridlesmith Gate Nottingham & 3 Oct 1689 in Castle Gate.

Rev John Ryther

(circa 1634 - June 1681)
      He was a nonconformist divine, son of John Ryther (d.1673) a tanner. His father became a leader among the Quakers at York.
See Oxford Dictionary of National Biography for further information: www.oxforddnb.com/.
The Dictionary of National Biography states: Ryther, John (1631x5-1681), clergyman and ejected minister, the son of John Rither (d. 1673), a tanner of York who later turned Quaker, was born in Yorkshire. There is uncertainty over his date of birth: he was said to be forty-nine when he died in 1681, suggesting that he was born in 1631 or 1632, but his reported age of fifteen at matriculation would suggest 1634 or 1635. Educated at Leeds grammar school, he entered Cambridge on 25 March 1650, aged fifteen, as a sizar at Sidney Sussex College. From 25 March 1655 until his ejection in 1660 he was vicar of Frodingham, including Bromby, Lincolnshire. He then obtained the vicarage of North Ferriby, Yorkshire, only to be turned out by the Act of Uniformity in 1662. He continued to preach in his house at Brough, in the neighbouring parish of Elloughton, and for this spent several months confined in York Castle. Forced from home by the Five Mile Act in 1666, he eventually settled as pastor of the Independent church at Bradford-dale in 1668. In the following year he preached there as well as at the Halifax chapelries of Cross Stone, Sowerby, and Coley, for which he was again imprisoned. In 1669 he sought refuge in London. His new flock, which included many sailors, built him a meeting-house at Wapping, Middlesex, where he was ordained an Independent minister on 6 February 1670. Almost immediately he was convicted for illegal preaching; warrants were issued against him but he managed to escape. The sailors became so devoted to the Seaman's Preacher, as Ryther was known, that they reportedly prevented his apprehension by intimidating the arresting officers.
Ryther published numerous works between 1672 and 1680, including The Morning Seeker (1673), a series of sermons on the advantages of early religion. In dedicating this to the godly Lady Dorothy Norcliffe of Langton, Yorkshire, and her daughters, Lady Elizabeth Bright and Lady Katherine Wentworth, Ryther acknowledged the support they had given him and other ejected ministers. In addition to A Funeral Sermon (1674) for his close friend James Janeway, the Presbyterian minister at Rotherhithe, Surrey, Ryther edited Janeway's posthumous Legacy to his Friends, Containing Twenty-Seven Instances of Sea-Dangers and Deliverances (1675). Ryther's best-known work, A Plat for Mariners (1672, 1675, 1780, 1803), several sermons on Jonah's voyage, included an epistle by Janeway. The evangelical John Newton (1727–1807), himself a former sailor, added a preface in 1780. Ryther aimed at a popular rather than scholarly audience. Employing an affecting style which earned him the nickname Crying Jeremy, he pleaded with sinners to awaken from their spiritual lethargy and respond to Christ's call while there was still time.
Ryther and his wife, Margaret, who survived him, had one son,
John [see below], and a daughter, Rachel Dale. He died in June 1681, leaving his house in Stepney, Middlesex, to his son. He remembered his ‘honoured mother’ with 20s. a year for life (PRO, PROB 11/367, fol. 130). He was buried in his chapel in Wapping. Shortly after his death, government informers reported finding a supply of guns and powder hidden near ‘Ryder's’ meeting-house, though whether he was at all linked to this cache is not known (CSP dom., 1680–81, 365).

     He served in the wars from 1334. In 1334 Edward III, then at York, ordered John de Ryther and Nicholas de Wortlay to asemble the men-at-arms, archers and others at Sherburn, whence they were to proceed to the Scottish Marches. On his own testimony, taken from depositions on the Scrope and Grosvenor controversy in 1386, when he was too old and infirm to travel to York, we learn that when Edward III began his wars in France, he was with him in his expedition to Burempos in Picardy. He was afterwards in 1340, at the siege of Tournay, and in 1342 at the siege of Vannes and at the siege of Morlaix. He was with the King at Melrose on his expedition to Scotland and afterwards sailed to Flanders and took part in the battle of Sluys. He was at the great fight at Crecy in 1346, he then accompanied the King to Calais and was present during the long investment of that port, then to Rheims and Paris. He was also in the siege of Wellon in Lithuania and he caused the arms of Sir Geoffrey Scrope to be set up in the cathedral at Wellon. He was next at the battle of Najara, near the Ebro in Spain, then he attended the great lord of Lancaster, John of Gaunt, to the Chivranche in Caux. For his services he was probably exempted from the tax of knighthood, as we find him always styled esquire. His last years appear to have been spent at Scarborough, and in the subsidy roll of 1378 the name of William de Ryther, esquire, possibly his son, [but more likely his nephew] appears at the head of the inhabitants of Ryther.
