Guernsey in the Reign of Charles II


by Richard Hocart. La Societe Guernesiaise.  The book, which is based on a wide range of documents held in Guernsey and in libraries in England, tells the story of Guernsey between 1660, when the monarchy was restored, and the death of Charles II in 1685. Subjects covered include the grant of a pardon to Guernsey for the rebellion in 1643, the dismissal of some of the jurats by the King, the imposition of the Anglican liturgy and the suppression of the island’s Presbyterian church, the recall of the Governor, Lord Hatton, in 1665, the two Anglo-Dutch wars in the reign and the grant of a new charter in 1668.
