[Milton-L] Self-referencing by Puritans?

Did the Puritans ever refer to themselves by that name?  The OED does not so indicate, and since the term was mostly pejorative (aside from other, more positive terms they used such as "saints") I would be interested in an early modern source example if one exists.  This question came from a student.
Thanks,
