A Universal History of Party; with the Origin of Party Names[1] would
form an acceptable addition to literary history: "N. & Q." has
contributed towards such a work some disquisitions on our party names
Whig and Tory, and The Good Old Cause. Such names as Puritan,
Malignant, Evangelical[2], can be traced up to their first
commencement, but some obscurity hangs on the mintage-date of the
names we are about to consider.
As a matter of fact, the distinction of High Church and Low Church
always existed in the Reformed English Church, and the history of
these parties would be her history. But the names were not coined till
the close of the seventeenth century, and were not stamped in full relief
as party-names till the first year of Queen Anne's reign.
In October, 1702, Anne's first Parliament and Convocation assembled:
"From the deputies in Convocation at this period, the appellations High
Church and Low Church originated, and they were afterwards used to
distinguish the clergy. It is singular that the bishops[3] were ranked
among {118} the Low Churchmen (see Burnet, v. 138.; Calamy, i. 643.;
Tindal's Cont., iv. 591.)"--Lathbury's Hist. of the Convocation, Lond.
1842, p. 319.
Mr. Lathbury is a very respectable authority in matters of this kind, but
if he use "originated" in its strict sense, I am inclined to think he is
mistaken; as I am tolerably certain that I have met with the words
several years before 1702. At the moment, however, I cannot lay my
hands on a passage to support this assertion.
The disputes in Convocation gave rise to a number of pamphlets, such
as A Caveat against High Church, Lond. 1702, and The Low
Churchmen vindicated
