File:RoyalProclamation 1715 ForArrestOf SirWilliamWyndham 3rdBaronet.JPG

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Royal Proclamation dated 23 September 1715 by King George I for the arrest of Sir William Wyndham, 3rd Baronet (c.1688 – 17 June 1740), of Orchard Wyndham in Somerset. Wyndham was an English Tory statesman, who served as Secretary at War in 1712 and Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1713 during the reign of the last Stuart monarch, Queen Anne (1702-1714). He was a Jacobite leader firmly opposed to the Hanoverian succession and was leader of the Tory opposition in the House of Commons during the reign of King George I (1714-1727) and during the early years of King George II (1727-1760). Text:
“A proclamation for apprehending Sir William Wyndham, Baronet. George R.
Whereas Sir William Wyndham Baronet has been lately apprehended and seized by virtue of a warrant of one of our Principal Secretaries of State on suspicion of high treason and on the perusal of papers found in the custody of the said Sir William Wyndham at the time he was apprehended as aforesaid it manifestly appears that he has entred into a most horrid and traiterous conspiracy not only for the encouragement of the rebellion now carrying on in Our Kingdoms in favour of the Pretender, but also for the abetting and promoting an intended invasion of Our Kingdoms. And whereas the said Sir William Wyndham has made his escape and is fled from justice, we therefore have thought fit by the advice of our Privy Council, to issue this our Royal Proclamation, hereby requiring and commanding all our Loving Subjects whatsoever to discover and apprehend and cause the said Sir William Wyndham to be apprehended and discovered and to carry him before some of our Justices of the Peace or Chief Magistrates of the county, town or place where he shall be apprehended, who are respectively required to secure him and thereof to give speedy notice unto our Privy Council or one of our Principal Secretaries of State to the end that he may be forth coming and be dealt withal and proceeded against according to law. And whosoever shall apprehend or discover the said Sir William Wyndham and bring him before such Justice of the Peace or Chief Magistrate, shall receive for reward the sum of one thousand punds, which said sum of one thousand pounds the Lords Commissioners of Our Treasury are hereby required and directed to pay accordingly. Given at Our Court of St James's the twenty third day of September 1715 in the second year of our reign. God Save the King.
London, printed by John Baskett, printer to the King's most Excellent Majesty, and by the assigns of Thomas Newcomb and Henry Hills, deceas'd, 1715.”
