Example text

Writing to his friend Sir Edward Harley on 1 August Thomas Doughty, the vicar of Legsby in Lincolnshire, stressed that he had been unable to consult any of his fellow clergy and asked what the beleaguered ministers should do: do they petition…or do they only prepare and resolve to leave their employments and office? or do they any of them comply or conforme? is there no mitigation or Dispensation to be hoped for? Surely the hand of God is heavy upon many of his people. 17 At Charminster in Dorset the minister, Samuel Hardy, managed to hold on to his curacy through a BARTHOLOMEW DAY 35 combination of factors: the church was a peculiar and therefore was exempt from normal diocesan jurisdiction;18 his patron, Thomas Trenchard, ensured that he remained undisturbed by neighbouring magistrates; and he conformed to a limited extent by reading ‘the scripture-sentences, the creed, commandments, lessons, prayer for the king’.

34 Although Richard Knightley’s own ministers conformed he was not slow to respond to the needs of other ministers who had felt unable to submit. In September 1662, shortly after the Feast of St Bartholomew, he made provision in his will for the distribution of £200 ‘to 20 such poore Ministers as my Executor 38 THE PURITAN GENTRY BESIEGED, 1650–1700 shall think fit, or such persons who lately exercised the office of Ministers, equally to be divided amongst them’. 35 William Strode of Somerset, who died in 1666, preferred a more targeted approach.

Subsequently it emerged that there was a plan to secure the king’s agreement to a settlement before the new Parliament assembled and that for this purpose a set of propositions was being extracted from the abortive treaties of Oxford, Uxbridge and Newport. According to one royalist correspondent, those who were ‘most violent in this design’ included the Earls of Bedford and Manchester, William Pierrepont, Alexander Popham, Sir William Waller and Oliver St John. 20 Although it had been decided that Cavaliers and their sons should be debarred from standing as candidates in the new parliamentary elections it proved impossible to enforce this restric-tion and in royalist circles there was considerable satisfaction over the outcome.
