About This Item

London, 1679 This trial was a consequence of the Popish Plot. Sir George Wakeman ( physician to the Queen), William Marshall , William Rumley and James Corker ( Benedictine Monks), were accused by Titus Oates and others of conspiring to murder King Charles II. They were tried on 18 July 1679 and acquitted after the jury had been instructed that it could not find them guilty of misprision of high treason (ie having knowledge but without necessarily involvement in the offence). After the trial Wakeman left the country and Rumley was found to be a lay brother. However Marshall and Corker were promptly rearrested for being priests; although convicted and sentenced to death they were not executed but were imprisoned until the accession of James 11 in 1685 . pp (4) + 84. Internally very good subject to some inoffensive marking and staining. Recently rebound in quarter leather.
