publication number XXVI of The Manx Society for Publication of National Documents & one of only 150 copies printed; pre-title page of Manx Society giving date established (1858), logo, volume number, & date of publication, followed by list of officers of the society. Preface & with an introductory notice by the author relating to the time of the rebellion 1643-1663 & also included are copies of the various depositions preserved in the rolls office, Castletown and other documents connected therewith & also the words of the ballad of Illiam Dhone. It is somewhat singular that various writers who have thought proper to allude to the case of William Christian of Ronaldsway, Receiver-General of the Isle of Man, did not consider it necessary to refer to the Depositions deposited in the Rolls Office, Castletown, in order to ascertain the facts therein recorded, as to the actions and motives of various persons connected with The Rising, in 1651 , against the authority of James, 7th Earl of Derby, the supreme Lord of the Island, and that of his noble Countess, Charlotte de la Tremouille, during his absence from the Island, when he went to assist Charles II in his last fatal struggle for the recovery of his throne. The writer of Historical Notices has indeed referred to them in such a way as suited his own view of the case, betraying much ignorance of the laws and customs of the Isle of Man; a copy of this pamphlet was forwarded to Sir Walter Scott, by John Christian of Milntown, one of the Deemsters, complaining of the treatment one of his ancestors had received at his hands, which drew from Sir Walter, in the Introduction to the next edition of "Peveril of the Peak", a vindication from the charge of what the Deemster complained of in his letter to him, and says "what Mr. Christian remarks about that Edward Christian, described in the tale as the brother of the gentleman executed, was a mere creature of the imagination, and he was not aware that such a person had existed."
