The Reades of Ely were Quakers. In 1664 four of the Reades were committed to Ely gaol for refusing to take the oath of allegiance, and, when brought before the magistrates, said, "We could not for conscience' sake, being the Lord's free men." George Reade was again committed in 1663 for refusing the oath, and remained prisoner some months. Richard Reade, in 1663, suffered a distress of a large brass kettle, said to be worth £1 6s. 8d., for refusing to bear arms in the county militia.
