The Register Books of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-1659


Cat No.:   GB8116:

This is a most unusual book.

During the English Civil War, Presbyterian ministers and church councils were established in London's churches. These people had to be proposed and vetted (to ensure that they were sympathetic with the new government!) Furthermore, they had to be seen to be promoting the new government in their sermons, and giving thanks and blessings for the various victories of the time.

This book contains transcripts of the proposals for the new ministers and church councils of each of those churches, plus the records of their support for the government, and letters relating to the lack of the right words being used in their sermons!

Wonderful fascinating stuff for the historian of the English Civil War, plus of course, containing lots of information and names suitable for the family historian.
