George Fox spoke and beaten up (1652)

Fox went with some friends to the local church at Ulverston, but Lampitt the vicar, jealous of the fact that he had lost the whole Fell family to Fox, stirred up a mob to attack the Quakers with ‘stones, hedge-stakes and holly bushes. Fox was knocked out and when he came around a man struck him violently on the hand so that his whole arm went numb, however the power of God healed him.
