Association Oath Rolls for Sussex & Cinque Ports 1696
A full transcription of all the Sussex (and Cinque Ports) men who signed an Oath of Allegiance to King William III in 1696 following an attempted assassination. Men (over age 20) including clergy are listed in the place they signed, and only 5% signed by mark. Michael Burchall has transcribed all these signatures from the originals at the National Archives and he writes a full historical introduction and gives a potted biography of major office bearers. Sussex is one of the first counties where names have been abstracted. These Oath Rolls of 1696 fill the gap between the Hearth Tax Lists of the 1660s and the Land Tax Lists of 1785 (extracted by the Sussex Record Society). .pdf word-searchable.
