LANCASHIRE-55798-1.jpg PETITION IN FAVOUR OF EPISCOPACY, 1641
[LANCASHIRE]

Contemporary Unsigned Copy of the Petition of the Nobility Knights Gentry Ministers & Freeholders of the County of Lancaster shewing that "whereas divers papers usurping the names of our county [as] petitioner[s], have been obtruded upon this honourable house", the Commons of the Long Parliament, "to the great scandal of religion, & prejudice of our country, some whereof we have found to be groundless invectives, against Episcopy, barely founded upon indiscretion & ignorance" the petitioners, "aiming chiefly at the glory of God, & salvation of our souls, humbly crave leave, to vindicate our county, from such aspersions", stating that "the office & calling of Bishops, a name we shall here rather, pray for than dispute ... founded in the first Christian churches, confirmed in the blood of Martyrs, & maintained in the purest time of the gospel, we apprehend to be of greater weight than to be libelled, & scandaled, by such factious persons, as have either ignorance, or prejudice, for their best counsellors";
and "praying that personal crimes may not be imputed to religious orders, nor that errors in private governors, may be a breach in public government".
But "when the person of any Bishop by his life or doctrine, hath dishonoured God ... or defamed his calling, may his fault be punished with such severity, as in your justice, and wisdom, shall be thought fit".
They suggest that "were the Antipetitioners throughly examined, they would be found partial prejudicate men, rash inconsiderate men, unable & unqualified men, men of thin and cheap abilities, such as know no government, or scorn all", and "ready to add new firebrands to set the whole church of God in combustion".
Their "last petition" is that "superstition & popery may be banished ... their liberties abridged, their patrons punished, & their power shortened, according to the laws in that case provided", praying "for your happy progress, in reforming the distempers of church and state", 1 side folio bearing watermark G DVRAND below a shield topped with a fleur-de-lys, short title on conjugate leaf with year date, no place,

The humble petition of the Nobility Knights
Gentry Ministers & Freeholders of the
County of Lancaster
Humbly sheweth, that whereas divers papers usurping the names
of our county [as] petitioner[s], have been obtruded upon this honourable house, to
the great scandal of religion, & prejudice of our country, some
whereof we have found to be groundless invectives, against
Episcopy, barely founded upon indiscretion & ignorance: we
whose names are subscribed, aiming chiefly at the glory of
God, & salvation of our souls, humbly crave leave, to vindicate
our county, from such aspersions, as these inconsiderate petitioners
may bring upon it.
The office & calling of Bishops, a name
we shall here rather, pray for than dispute, so pious in it
self, so reverend in its progress, so useful in ecclesiastical
government, founded in the first Christian churches, confirmed
in the blood of Martyrs, & maintained in the purest time of
the gospel, we apprehend to be of greater weight than to be
libelled, & scandaled, by such factious persons, as have either
ignorance, or prejudice, for their best counsellors; we
therefore beseech you to take into your considerations this
great & weighty function, praying that personal crimes may
not be imputed to religious orders, nor that errors in private
governors, may be a breach in public government.
When the person of any Bishop by his life or doctrine, hath dishonoured
God, profaned his religion, or defamed his calling, may his
fault be punished with such severity, as in your justice, and
wisdom, shall be thought fit, so that this sacred function may
be still maintained in all pristine purity, as is already
established, by the laws of the land.
Withal we crave
leave to certify, that were the Antipetitioners throughly exa-
mined, they would be found partial prejudicate men, rash in-
considerate men, unable & unqualified me, men of thin and
cheap abilities, such as know no government, or scorn all,
whereby this will be ready to add new firebrands to set the whole
church of God in combustion.
To this we add our last petition, that
superstition & popery may be banished, from amongst us, their
liberties abridged, their patrons punished, & their power
shortened, according to the laws in that case provided. This[,] Right
Honourable [House,] in a just care of the peace of the church, and the satisfaction
of our gracious sovereign, we beg from this grave assembly,
herein submitting ourselves, to your wise consideration, praying
as in all duty bound, for your happy progress, in reforming
the distempers of church and state.
