How is the Non-juror / Nonjuring name derived? Why were those who would not support the Orangeman called Non-jurors? --Tagishsimon(talk) 17:12, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
jurare is Latin for swear or make an oath, and they would not swear allegiance to the new king (often because they had already sworn allegiance to the old one). --Rumping (talk) 08:20, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Most, if not all, of the Clan Chattan association of Clans were non-jurant (Episcopalian), yet came out in support of Charles Stuart in the last Jacobite rebellion (1745-46), giving their lives in center field at Culloden. Thus I think it not exactly true that " they generally did not actively support the Jacobite rebellions in 1715 or 1745." This record was lost in part because they were killed, imprisoned, deported, or escaped to other countries. Beanmf (talk) 22:30, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
