Clarendon Code

 Q:   Ask a Question about Clarendon Code       
Clarendon Code, (1661-65) was designed to secure the supremacy of the Church of England.

In 1641 he broke with the revolutionary party and became one of the royal advisers.

When civil war began he followed Charles to Oxford, and was knighted and made chancellor of the Exchequer. On the king's defeat in 1646 he followed Prince Charles to Jersey, where he began his History of the Rebellion, published 1702-1704, which provides memorable portraits of his contemporaries.

In 1651 he became chief adviser to the exiled Charles II. At the Restoration he was created earl of Clarendon, while his influence was further increased by the marriage of his daughter Anne to James, Duke of York.

His moderation earned the hatred of the extremists, however, and he lost Charles's support by openly expressing disapproval of the king's private life.

After the disasters of the Dutch war in 1667, he went into exile.
