Signatures of King George III, his friend Bathurst (Secretary for War and the Colonies, 1812-1827), and Justices of the Peace of the Borough and Parish of Buckingham: Chandos Buckingham; William Pigott and John Newman. Three vellum documents all pinned together in the top left corner by a faded pink ribbon. The top document (Oath of Allegience) is 33cm x 5cm, and is written in black ink - resembling a printed form. 'I, A.B., do promise and swear that I will be faithfull and bear true Allegiance to his majesty King George so help me God. I, A.B., do swear that I do from my heart abhor, detest, and Abjure, as impious and heretical that Damnable doctrine and Position that - princes excommunicated or deprived or any Authority of the See of Rome may be deposed or murthered by their subjects or any other whatsoever.

The second document (Oath of Justices of the Peace) is 33cm x 9cm and is written mostly in black ink, as a form 'Ye shall swear that as Justice of the Peace within the Borough and Parish of Buckingham' - the last five words are inserted by another hand. The bottom document is the largest, 33cm x 21cm and is apparently handwritten and signed by Bathurst. 'George the third . to . Councillor Richard Grenville Nugent Chandos Temple Marquis of Buckingham, Geoge Lord Nugent, Sir George Lee Baronet, Lieutenant Colonel William Pigott, John Newman, John Poulett, George Morgan, Richard Dayrell, George Newman and George Rowland Minshull . given you jointly and severally Power and authority to recieve the Oaths of every Justice and Keeper of our Peace . for the Borough and Parish of Buckingham . witness Ourself at Westminster the eighth day of September in the fifty seventh year of our Reign.

There follows signatures by William Pigott (twice) Chandos Buckingham, and John Newman. Seller Inventory # 2620
