Subject: Quarter Sessions Records - Oaths Taken 1696>>>>
Date: Sat, 08 Apr 2000 19:29:04 +1200


This next section of 'Persons Taking Oaths', extracted from the North
Riding Society's volume, is headed

'Names of the persons who appeared at the Sessions and gave certificates
of having received the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper; and took the
Oathes mentioned in 1 William & Mary, 25 and 30 Charles II., and 7 & 8
William III.'

From another source, I learned that these Association Oaths were
required to be taken by all MPs, freeman, military and civil officers of
the Crown, and the gentry and clergy of England and Wales, in order to
show their loyalty to the House of Orange.
