Ingoldsby, T. (n.d.). The Jackdaw of Rheims. Retrieved from

Excerpt: [Father John Ingoldsby, to whose papers I am largely indebted for the Saintly records which follow, was brought up by his father, a cadet of the family, in the Romish faith, and was educated at Douai for the Church. Besides the manuscripts now at Tappington, he was the author of two controversial treatises on the connexion between the Papal Hierarchy and the Nine of Diamonds. From his well?known loyalty, evinced by secret services to the Royal cause during the Protectorate, he was excepted by name out of the Acts against the Papists, became superintendent of the Queen Dowager?s chapel at Somoerset House, and enjoyed a small pension until his death, which took place in the third year of Queen Anne (1704), at the mature age of ninety?six. He was an ecclesiastic of great learning and piety, but from the stiff and antiquated phraseology which he adopted, I have thought it necessary to modernize it a little: this will account for certain anachronisms that have unavoidably crept in; the substance of his narrative has, however, throughout been strictly adhered to.
