'A Military Camp in St. James' Park During the Gordon Riots, 1780', c1783, (1944). Troops were stationed in St James's Park, Westminster, London, as a response to the Gordon Riots, several days of unrest based on anti-Catholic feeling. There was widespread rioting and looting, including attacks on Newgate Prison and the Bank of England. The army moved in and started shooting, resulting in an estimated 300-700 deaths.

Sacheverell Cards', (c1872). Creator: Unknown

Sacheverell Cards', (c1872). Pack of cards illustrating the career of Dr Henry Sacheverell (1674-1724), English High Church clergyman and politician. Sacheverell preached two sermons strongly criticising the Whig Government's policy regarding the church in 1709. After a trial he was suspended from preaching for two years, which contributed to the outbreak of rioting in London and elsewhere in the country (Sacheverell Riots) in 1710. The riots contributed to the government drafting the Riot Act in 1714. From Old and New London, Vol. II: A Narrative of Its History, Its People, and Its Places, by Walter Thornbury.

Anti-Catholic Gordon Riots, London, 6-7 June 1780. Artist: Unknown

Anti-Catholic Gordon Riots, London, 6-7 June 1780. A mob setting fire to Newgate Prison and freeing prisoners. Lord George Gordon, a retired navy lieutenant, was strongly opposed to proposals for Catholic emancipation. On 2nd June, 1780, Gordon led a crowd of 50, 000 people to the House of Commons to present a petition for the repeal of the 1778 Roman Catholic Relief Act, that had removed certain disabilities. This demonstration turned into a riot and for the next five days many Catholic chapels and private houses were destroyed. Buildings attacked and damaged included the Bank of England, King's Bench Prison, Newgate Prison and Fleet Prison. (Colorised black and white print).
