From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Millenary Petition was a list of requests given to James I by Puritans in 1603 when he was travelling to London in order to claim the English throne.
It is not commonly recognized that there is no contemporary record of the presentation of this petition to the King during his journey from Edinburgh to London. Since this point affects not only the article on the Millenary Petition but also that on the Conference at Hampton Court, I will for the moment simply refer anyone interested to "Hampton Court Again: The Millenary Petition and the Calling of the Conference" in Anglican and Episcopal History 77:1 (March 2008), 46-70. That article suggests that there are serious historiographic questions about the conference. I shall be looking at the two Wikipedia entries mentioned in some detail. William L.
