Henry Compton, bishop of London, asked a proctor in the Canterbury Court of Arches to prepare a formal order which required both the French churches of Savoy and of London in Threadnettle street to supply an account of the French congregations existing in and about the capital, and the rights and privileges by which each had been established. After enumerating fourteen non-conformist congregations, the response of both churches concluded with a declaration that it was not possible to account for the rights and privileges whereby each of them is established. Compton replied that he would try to regulate the situation, since the King would not be pleased. This chapter examines why the Bishop had become sufficiently agitated to order the enquiry and how the situation had deteriorated during the reign of William and Mary. It also assesses how far the Glorious Revolution was responsible for the developments that had occurred.
