Comment posted Attainder: Duke of Argyll signs petition to redress a wrong out of time by Kelly Whittaker.
“The Acts of Attainder were used against them, declaring their families down the continuing generations to be of ‘corrupt blood’ (the ‘taint’ in the attainder); confiscating their estates and property – which went to the King; prevented any inheritance, the passing on of family rights and titles to succeeding generations; and exiling the primary culprits.
The attainder placed on these families has never been lifted, seeing the old titles lost and current descendants unable to assume that link with their family’s past – just because they ended up on the losing side over two and a half centuries ago.”
Those who were of the real Jacobite bloodlines know they are not tainted or dirty. This is just propaganda to win someone’s favour.
