  From persecution to toleration in the West Country, 1672-1692.(Protestant
William acted in cooperation with Parliament issuing a royal Declaration of Indulgence rather than acting unilaterally as had James II in 1687 and 1688 and Charles II in 1672.
The licensing provisions of the Declaration of Indulgence of 1672 gave Calvinists in a region like the West Country of Devon and Cornwall an institutional cohesion--established congregations--that they had hitherto lacked, but politically motivated persecution and prosecution during the turmoil of the following decades reduced Calvinist Nonconformity to a largely urban phenomenon by 1692.
English Calvinists legally began forming congregations around licensed ministers and meeting houses separate from those of the Church of England in 1672 when Charles II issued a Declaration of Indulgence in an attempt to garner political support against the increasingly obdurate Cavalier Parliament from Puritans excluded from Anglican Church offices by the acts of 1661-65.

 Royal Declaration of Indulgence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Royal Declaration of Indulgence was Charles II of England's attempt to extend religious liberty to Protestant nonconformists in his realms, by suspending the execution of the penal laws that punished recusants from the Church of England.
The English Parliament, however, suspected that their king favoured Roman Catholicism, and compelled him to withdraw this declaration in favour of religious freedom - putting in its place the first of the Test Acts (1673), which required anyone entering public service in England to take the Anglican sacrament.
When Charles II's openly Catholic successor James II attempted to issue a similar Declaration of Indulgence, an order for general religious tolerance, this was one of the grievances that led to the Glorious Revolution that outset him from the throne.

The Royal Commission explored what is called the "southern solution"--that is to say, the setting aside of a considerable area of undeveloped land in southern Palestine as a field for Jewish endeavour.
Several passages in the Royal Commission's report (pages 74, 92 and 109) showed that this was a very old grievance of the Arabs, who had always claimed that the Jews could make themselves heard in London, whereas the Arabs did not possess that method of defending their political interests.
Trusted's statement had given the impression, which still appeared quite justified to-day, that the Royal Commission was going to be asked, not only to examine the general political situation of Palestine, but also, and not as a subordinate task, the causes of the disturbances--not their profound causes, but their immediate causes.

Under the Declaration of Breda of May 1660, Charles had promised pardons, arrears of Army pay, confirmation of land purchases during the Interregnum and 'liberty of tender consciences' in religious matters, but several issues remained unresolved.
However, the Militia Act of 1661 vested control of the armed forces in the Crown, and Parliament agreed to an annual revenue of £1,200,000 (a persistent deficit of £400,000-500,000 remained, leading to difficulties for Charles in his foreign policy).
In the face of an Anglican Parliament's opposition, Charles was eventually forced to withdraw the Declaration in 1673.

Occasionally, however, the chapter took exception to the behaviour of the bedesmen (who were royal nominees), disrespectful vergers, or the petty canons, the reduction in whose numbers from six to three or four restricted their availability for parochial work.

But as diocesan Episcopacy is the religion there established by law, against which the presbytery has declared and testified (as above) as an anti-scriptural, anticovenanted, and merely a human and political settlement (whether considered abstractly or complexly with that in the kingdom of Scotland), there needs nothing be further said anent it.
And therefore, as the presbytery did and do testify against toleration, and toleration principles, disclaiming such an antiscriptural shelter; they therein, of consequence, bear witness and testimony against all such as do in these lands (where God has given his people a claim of another kind) professedly dwell under such a shadow.
