List of the Petitioning Clergy , 1772 . Sir , Dec . 24 9 1817 . fTHHE accompanying list of the Pern tiiioning Clergy will , I apprehend , meet the wishes of your ( literal ! y
nameless ) Correspondent , Vol . X . p . 618 , in the desire he lias expressed to see the names of the Clergymen of the , Established Church , " who signed the memorable Petition in 1772 , for
their Relief from Subscription to the Articles . To render it , as I trust , the more acceptable , I have arranged the names under the counties ia which their respective preferments were situated , rather than in the promiscuous form in which they are 2 iow blended in the
copy before me * I cannot , at least at present , gratify your inquirer , by any further particulars of the individuals themselves . Many of them , no doubt , in after-life filled , and some few , perhaps , are still honourably filling , different appointments in the Church , from those to which their names are
here attached , as ( of course ) their situations at the period of their signature . A copy of ^ the petition itself will be found correctly transcribed in the 42 d vol . of the Gentleman ' s Magazine , po
61 , and in the preceding volume an account is given of the meeting held to carry it into execution . This manly and temperate petition , it will be recollected , after a spirited debate , in which the cause of the subscribers
was most ably advocated by Sir Wm , Meredith and Lord John Cavendish , was rejected by a large majority * , on Lord North ' s urging ^ that t& it would tend to revive the flames of ecclesiastical controversy . " V . M . H .
