Note: The Baptist community referred to above as Cleagh Keating is also spelled Clough Keating, or Cloghkeating on modern maps.
Some idea of Cloghkeating's fortunes through the religious strife of Cromwell's invasion (1649-53), the Restoration, Monmouth's Rebellion (1685), and the Glorious Revolution (1688-1691) is conveyed by the personal letters cited above, as well as the following source:
Thomas Crosby (1740). The history of the English Baptists: from the Reformation to the beginning of the reign of King George I, v3, p43 (http://books.google.com/books?id=594sAAAAYAAJ ):
[About Thomas Patient, formerly of New England:] In all probability he might be the pastor, or at least an instrument in the founding of that Baptist church at Cloughkeating, which is now a numerous congregation, consisting of between two and three hundred members, some of the general persuasion and some of the particular; who are united in one communion without any distinction. This church, which my manuscript says, was founded by one of old Oliver's officers, is remarkable for the persecution that attended it, in the time of Monmouth's rebellion. The minister, says the manuscript, and all the members, were tryed for their lives. And the foreman of the jury swore, before he went into court, that he would never come out, till he had brought them all in guilty. But by God's providence, he died as soon as he came into court; and they being favoured with a protestant judge, the rest of the jury acquitted them all.
