a Cambridge-educated English cleric, schoolmaster and playwright. He is best known for being the father of Anne Hutchinson, considered the most famous (or infamous) English woman in colonial America. Marbury's most noted work, The Contract of Marriage between Wit and Wisdom was written in 1579 while he was in prison. It was a moral interlude or "wit play", following The Play of Wyt and Science by John Redford, and an adaptation of its sequel The Marriage of Wit and Science. The play had actually been performed, being noted in 1590 as one of the "current plays of the time."
