Lincoln, a town in England, was the seat of a Separatist congregation which called itself "Anabaptist" but was apparently Baptist, which in 1626 joined the "Anabaptist" congregations of London, Sarum, Coventry, and Tyverton in writing a letter to the Dutch Mennonites with the idea of joining the Waterlander Mennonites. This union, however, did not come into being (see Coventry). On 5 September 1630, the Lincoln congregation wrote a letter to the Waterlanders in Amsterdam defending the strict maintenance of church discipline, which was neglected by the Waterlanders.
