Rev. Thomas Carte

Thomas Hearne, 20 August 1722; Reliquae Hearniae, ed. Bliss (1869) 2:153-54.



Wednesday last (Aug. 15,) a proclamation offering a reward for 1000 for apprehending Mr. Thomas Cart, a non-juring clergyman, was issued out by the government, information being given against him for high treason. This Mr. Cart is a very ingenious man, and was of Brazen-Nose college in this university. Many persons are taken up, and orders given to take up others, a plot being to be laid before the parliament at their meeting.
