A member of the Cabal ministry, he was created Earl of Shaftesbury and appointed Lord Chancellor in 1672. He favoured the claim of the Duke of Monmouth to the throne in the place of the Catholic James, Duke of York, and gained political ground briefly in the wake of the 'Popish Plot' (1679-81), but fell from favour so dramatically that he was forced to flee to the Netherlands in 1682.

Stephen Dugdale (d.1683), informer. Imprisoned for debt in 1678, Dugdale turned informer, claiming to have knowledge of the 'Popish Plot' to assassinate Charles II. He confirmed the evidence of the plot's chief fabricator Titus Oates, and created a minor sub-plot of his own, based in Staffordshire. At the Popish Plot trials of 1679, however, Dugdale was unpersuasive in his testimony and his respectability ebbed away under bouts of venereal disease and drunkenness. He continued to earn well as an informant until his death, however.

Curiousity. Portrait of Titus Oates, half length in an oval frame on a pedestal, wearing wig, bands, and robe. From a broadside entitled 'A poem upon Mt Tytus Oates, the first discoverer of the late Popish Plot', published by Henry Brome and Richard Chiswell (1679). Titus Oates (1649-1705) was an English perjurer who fabricated the 'Popish Plot', a supposed Catholic conspiracy to kill King Charles II. He began his career as an Anglican priest, but converted to Catholicism in 1677. This secured his admission to Jesuit college at St Omer, and this gave him enough information to give his story about a Catholic plot to murder Charles some plausibility. Oates swore his testimony to Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey in September 1678, and it was Godfrey's murder a few weeks later (a death that has never been explained) that overnight turned the plot in the public mind from allegation to certainty. Oates managed to retain a central role in the unfolding affair by continually inventing new accusations. In 1684, in the flood of the Tory reaction, he was prosecuted for perjury, and in 1685 sentenced to the pillory and public flogging. The Glorious Revolution saved him; he was pardoned, given a pension and married a wealthy widow.

Miles Prance (fl.1678-88), perjurer involved in the 'Popish Plot', a supposed Catholic conspiracy to kill Charles II. Prance was arrested in relation to the death of Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey (to whom Titus Oates had sworn testimony), and after admitting involvement in Godfrey's murder (which has never been conclusively proved), gave evidence against Henry Berry, Robert Green, and Lawrence Hill, who were executed as a result. Prance, meanwhile shared with William Bedloe the reward for the discovery of the murderers. Under the influence of Bedloe and Oates, Prance subsequently informed on a number of Catholics and published pamphlets defending his evidence. Prance faded from view with the ebbing of the Popish Plot, but in 1686 he was found guilty of perjury, fined and stood in the pillory at Westminster (although he was spared the whipping he was sentenced to). Frontispiece to Prance's 'True Narrative and Discovery of several very remarkable passages relating to the horrid Popish Plot' (1679).

Mary Wilcox,
Mary Wilcox, of Witheridge, Devonshire, alias Caraboo.
Drawn & Engraved by N. Bramwhite.
Published by J.M. Gutch Augt. 16th. 1817.
Stipple engraving, sheet 250 x 150mm. 9¾ x 6". Tatty and chipped extremities.
Mary Baker, born Mary Wilcox, alias 'Princess Caraboo'. She arrived one day in the spring of 1817 at Knole Park near Bristol. By speaking a made-up language and not a word of English, she convinced the lady of the house, Elizabeth Worrall, that she was a lost noblewoman from the East Indies. She stayed with the Worralls for a few months, until one day she ran away to Bath. She was spotted in the Circus by a family friend Dr Wilkinson, the proprietor of the Pump Rooms, who followed her as far as the Pack Horse. He took her to some ladies in Russell Street, who gave her tea and treated her like the royalty they believed her to be, until Mrs Worrall arrived to fetch her home in the evening. Dr Wilkinson, a polymath and scientific lecturer (who later lived at 55 Great Pulteney Street and introduced gas lighting to Bath), had been very intrigued by Caraboo and her language when visiting the Worralls, and had written a long description of her in the Bath Chronicle a few days earlier. The article was published at his request in several other newspapers, and it was not long before the story was read in Bristol by a woman who recognised the description of Mary Baker and her eccentric behaviour. Just as Dr Wilkinson in Bath was launching an appeal to send the poor lost Caraboo home, Mrs Worrall in Bristol was being told that her house-guest was a fraud. The story created a sensation in the local and national press, and Dr Wilkinson in particular became the object of much merriment. Frontispiece to John Matthew Gutch's 'Caraboo. A Narrative of a Singular Imposition practised upon the benevolence of a lady residing in the vicinity of the City of Bristol, By a young Woman of the name of Mary Willcocks, alias Baker, alias Bakerstendht, alias Caraboo, Princess of Javasu', 1817. After Nathan Cooper Branwhite (1775 - 1857), painter, miniature painter and engraver.
