St Erme Protestation Returns 1641

1641 oath of allegiance to Crown, Parliament and the Protestant religion.

In July 1641, a resolution of Parliament requested all males over 18 years to take an oath of allegiance in support of the Crown, Parliament and the Protestant religion, to oppose the 'plots and conspiracies of priests and Jesuits' that were allegedly subverting the kingdom. Lists of those taking the oath were prepared in each parish, usually by the parish incumbent or clerk, but some lists consist of men's signatures [or illiterate men's marks]. These lists were sent to Parliament in 1642.Most men took the oath and those who refused to sign [mostly non-conformist] were sometimes also listed so that for some areas the surviving records constitute an almost complete census of adult males.Surviving Protestation Returns are held in the House of Lords Record Office; arranged by county, hundred and parish.
