CJ (#34) Justice of The Peace 1686

At a court held the 7th day of July 1686 [(Old) Rappahannock County ] the following is recorded:

"Colnll. Cadwaldr. Jones (JO-1), Mr. Wm. Tayloe (TAY-3) & Capt. Samll. Travers (TR-2) having taken the Oaths of allegience & supremacy were by Colnll. John Stone (ST-1) & Lt. Colnll. Wm. Loyd (LO-1) sworne Justices of the peace for this County".

An oath was given and taken during this time due to the new reign of James II. [ Starting around May 1686.]  Much was to happen surrounding this chance of events.  The religious context of the day must be considered.  Much to be understood and applied to our Cadwallader (JO-1).  At least he was still active in July of 1686 in old Rappahannock.

Record from:

(Old) Rappahannock County Orders (1685 - 1687), p. 47, by Ruth & Sam Sparacio.
