Scene: A village Green near Tunbridge, May 1, 1665
The time is 6 a.m.
Although the Restoration has succeeded the Commonwealth, Puritan rule in the villages is not dead at this time and the village girls who come Maying do so apprehensively, for the Squire of the village is very strict and his own daughter is not allowed to become engaged to the man of her choice, but is promised to a certain Zerubbabel who is as pious as his name.
