Lurting, Thomas

F. 1632? D. 1713
Engelsk kvæker. Thomas Lurting blev født omkring 1632, sandsynligvis i Irland. Men han tilbragte sin barndom i London, hvor i en alder af fjorten blev tvunget til at deltage i krigen i Irland, hvor han tilbragte omkring to år. Efter sin tilbagevenden til London, blev han tvunget ind i Bristol Frigot, en af krigens fartøjer, der tilhørte admiral Blake's flåde. Om bord på samme skib blev han overbevist om krigens ondskab og besluttede at forlade flåden.
