Presbyterian Petitions 1775

1775 Petitions Ref T808/15307

Petitions of Dissenters {Presbyterians} and also some members of the Established Church to the Irish Parliament . The names were recorded by Parish or Congregation


PROTESTANT DISSENTERS (as PRESBYTERIANS were disparagingly termed) were barred from holding public office because of their beliefs. Presbyterian congregations across Ireland petitioned the parliament in Dublin for repeal of the Test Act which required all office holders, i.e. magistrates, burgesses etc. to be communicant members of the Established Church. Clearly, not all members of the Presbyterian congregations signed: some may have been beholden to a landlord belonging to the Established Church and did not wish to upset him.
