RN #96 Committee For Compounding Alphabetical Listing

This notebook contains an alphabetical listing for the JONES surname abstracted from the Committee For Compounding 1643-1660.  A copy of a page from my notes is shown below.  Family groups are clustered and the counties involved are included.  They were classified as a "Papist", "recusant", and "dissenter".  A "recusant" was one of the Roman Catholics in England who formerly incurred legal and social penalties for refusing to attend services of the Church of England.  A "dissenter" was defined as a non-conformist.

These are pages from my personal research.  It explores which JONES families were on what side of the fence, Catholic or Protestant.
