The Abjurers, Their Crimes, and Their Property

The Abjurers, Their Crimes, and Their Property

(p.33) Chapter 2 The Abjurers, Their Crimes, and Their Property
From England to France

William Chester Jordan

Princeton University Press

This chapter focuses on the abjurers themselves. The exile system was easier to accept in regions where multiple capital jurisdictions abutted one another, as they did on the continent, and where no one jurisdiction was receiving the whole mass of another jurisdiction's exiles. Some adjurers were caught up in circumstances and were perhaps harmless enough, but many were hardened criminals and opportunists, and all were so down on their luck upon their exile that they were susceptible to engaging in antisocial behavior of the most heinous sort. The discussions cover the abjurers' status and wealth, crimes suspected of the abjurers, and the fate of the abjurers' property.
