(Essex Quarter Sessions, 1641)

‘John Starkys … says that … [two parishioners] Jeremy Reeve and William Skynner, … did repair to the communion table in the chancel of the church and pull down the rails from about the table with their hands. And hedid see the saidpersons … bringing the rails out of the chancel into the churchyard and throw them over the wall into the highway. And he did see the said [people] set them on fire. …William Skynner … says that the reason for his so pulling down the rails was because they gave offence to his conscience, and that the placing of them was against God's laws and the king's’
