Among these “overdressed” women, Lyman was, apparently, the most rebellious and strong-willed. She appeared in court wearing the very silk hood that she had been indicted for donning.

https://www.encyclopedia.com/people/philosophy-and-religion/protestant-christianity-biographies/lyman-beecher one of the outstanding American preachers and revivalists before the Civil War. He achieved national fame as reformer, educator, and central figure in theological controversies
connecticuthistory.org/hope-for-the-west-the-life-and-mission-of-lyman-beecher/ While Beecher was a leading religious revivalist, social reformer, and shaper of American religious identity in the 19th century, his legacy exceeds that of his ministry. Of the 13 children that he fathered during his three marriages, all seven of his sons (including Henry Ward Beecher) followed him into religious life. Additionally, his daughters Catharine and Isabella entered public life as advocates for educational reform and suffrage respectively. His daughter, Harriet, however, became perhaps the most famous of his offspring after her authorship of the renowned abolitionist tract, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
Wanted to share a little more about Richard, first in America:
From Lyman Family Forum; Did you know: Richard Lyman and family in 1631 came from England on ship "Lion". He came with others like William Pierce, Martha Winthrop, John Winthrop's oldest son and family, apostle Eliot. They set anchor in Boston and joined a small colony there. They were there to celebrate what has become Thanksgiving Day on Nov 11th. Within 4 years Richard and his family and friends left through 100 miles of wilderness to Hartford, Ct, they loosing a great many of their 160 head of cattle on the way. They had no guide but their compass, and made their way over mountains, through swamps, thickets and rivers, which were not passable but with the greatest difficulty. They subsisted on a great measure on milk of their cows. They carried their packs, arms and some utensils. Quite an accomplishment as many of this company were persons of figure, who had lived in England in honor, affluence and delicacy, and were entirely strangers to fatigue and danger.
