Warrant of the Wiltshire Clubmen

October 23, 2016

 

 The Hillside of Buxbury, where by nine o'clock  26th May 1645 a warrant of the Wiltshire Clubmen called on the inhabitants of Dinton village (birthplace of Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon) to appear.

 Situated less than four miles to the south of the village. The warrant was brief in nature and concerned the local people's fears of the Civil War now centered in Dorset, Wiltshire.
