This chapter explores the system of collusive management established by Bishop Bridgeman and local puritans led by John Ley. It investigates the challenges to this that arose during the 1630s as the Laudian authorities exerted pressure on Bridgeman to enforce anti-puritan measures and as a consequence of the fallout from William Prynne’s visit to Chester in 1637.

Keywords:   Bishop Bridgeman, puritans, John Ley, Laudian authorities, William Prynne, Chester
