First of all, I'd like to keep this away from politics and religion: all I want is a bit of help verifying a statement.

Now, I was browsing through the Wikipedia article on Jacobitism, and I came across this:


In 1788, the Scottish Catholics swore allegiance to the Hanover Dynasty, and resolved two years later to pray for King George by name.

Which is a good thing, as I've been trying to reconcile my clan's support of the House of Stuart in '15 and '45 with my desire to recognize the House of Windsor. Odd, yes, but that's what's going through my head (did I mention that I'm Scottish?).

So, if anyone could come up with a reputable reference supporting or discounting the claim, I would be grateful.

Nothing and no one? Very well. This will be the only bump.

Sorry--it's not really my era, so I wouldn't know where to begin. I can tell you a ton about Catholicism and the Kirk in the Elizabethan era, but that's too early for your purposes, I'm afraid.

Yep, 'fraid so. Thanks, though. I appreciate it.
