Glorious Revolution Project

From Rpalmer

Jump to: navigation, search

This project makes available a list of town notables who were displaced or appointed in the time leading up to the Glorious Revolution. The list will identify opponents and partisans of James II who appear in legal cases and other documents both before and after the Glorious Revolution. Those other documents will thus assume their proper context and contribute to a better understanding of the local aspects of the Glorious Revolution.

This page will be segmented as the database becomes too large for one page and as other documents accumulate relevant to the Glorious Revolution.

The researcher primarily responsible for this material is Alan Cooper, indentified in individual entries as "ac".
