The Bill of Rights Society 1769–1771
This chapter discusses the Bill of Rights Society, which was originally named the ‘Society of Gentlemen Supporters of the Bill of Rights’. It was founded on February 20, 1769, at the London Tavern, by people who came from different social and political backgrounds. This society aimed to contribute to the independence and support of John Wilkes. The name reflected the society's public intentions, and disclaimed the role of merely being a club for Wilkes.
