Rye House Plot

John Evelyn's Diary 1683 Jul. 13 Jul 1683. As I was visiting Sir Thomas Yarborough and his Lady, in Covent Garden, the astonishing news was brought to us of the Arthur Capell 1st Earl Essex 1631-1683 (52) having cut his throat, having been but three days a prisoner in the Tower of London, and this happened on the very day and instant that William Russell 1639-1683 (43) was on his trial, and had sentence of death [See Rye House Plot.]. This accident exceedingly amazed me, my Arthur Capell 1st Earl Essex 1631-1683 (52) being so well known by me to be a person of such sober and religious deportment, so well at his ease, and so much obliged to the King. It is certain the Charles II King England, Scotland and Ireland 1630-1685 (53) and James II King England, Scotland and Ireland 1633-1701 (49) were at the Tower, and passed by his window about the same time this morning, when my Arthur Capell 1st Earl Essex 1631-1683 (52) asking for a razor, shut himself into a closet, and perpetrated the horrid act. Yet it was wondered by some how it was possible he should do it in the manner he was found, for the wound was so deep and wide, that being cut through the gullet, windpipe, and both the jugulars, it reached to the very vertebræ of the neck, so that the head held to it by a very little skin as it were; the gapping too of the razor, and cutting his own fingers, was a little strange; but more, that having passed the jugulars he should have strength to proceed so far, that an executioner could hardly have done more with an ax. There were odd reflections upon it.
The fatal news coming to Hicks Hall upon the article of my William Russell 1639-1683 (43) trial, was said to have had no little influence on the Jury and all the Bench to his prejudice. Others said that he had himself on some occasions hinted that in case he should be in danger of having his life taken from him by any public misfortune, those who thirsted for his estate should miss of their aim; and that he should speak favorably of that Henry Percy 8th Earl Northumberland 1532-1585, and some others, who made away with themselves; but these are discourses so unlike his sober and prudent conversation that I have no inclination to credit them. What might instigate him to this devilish act, I am not able to conjecture. My Henry Hyde 2nd Earl Clarendon -1709, his brother-in-law, who was with him but the day before, assured me he was then very cheerful, and declared it to be the effect of his innocence and loyalty; and most believe that his Majesty had no severe intentions against him, though he was altogether inexorable as to William Russell 1639-1683 (43) and some of the rest. For my part, I believe the crafty and ambitious Anthony Ashley-Cooper 1st Earl Shaftesbury 1621-1683 had brought them into some dislike of the present carriage of matters at Court, not with any design of destroying the monarchy (which Anthony Ashley-Cooper 1st Earl Shaftesbury 1621-1683 had in confidence and for unanswerable reasons told me he would support to his last breath, as having seen and felt the misery of being under mechanic tyranny), but perhaps of setting up some other whom he might govern, and frame to his own platonic fancy, without much regard to the religion established under the hierarchy, for which he had no esteem; but when he perceived those whom he had engaged to rise, fail of his expectations, and the day past, reproaching his accomplices that a second day for an exploit of this nature was never successful, he gave them the slip, and got into Holland, where the fox died, three months before these unhappy Lords and others were discovered or suspected. Every one deplored Arthur Capell 1st Earl Essex 1631-1683 (52) and William Russell 1639-1683 (43), especially the last, as being thought to have been drawn in on pretense only of endeavoring to rescue the King from his present councilors, and secure religion from Popery, and the nation from arbitrary government, now so much apprehended; while the rest of those who were fled, especially Ferguson and his gang, had doubtless some bloody design to get up a Commonwealth, and turn all things topsy-turvy. Of the same tragical principles is Sydney.
I had this day much discourse with Monsieur Pontaq, son to the famous and wise prime President of Bordeaux. This gentleman was owner of that excellent vignoble of Pontaq and O'Brien, from whence come the choicest of our Bordeaux wines; and I think I may truly say of him, what was not so truly said of St. Paul, that much learning had made him mad. He had studied well in philosophy, but chiefly the Rabbins, and was exceedingly addicted to cabalistical fancies, an eternal hablador [romancer], and half distracted by reading abundance of the extravagant Eastern Jews. He spoke all languages, was very rich, had a handsome person, and was well bred, about forty-five years of age.

Samuel Pepy's Diary 1669 May. Friday 07 May 1669. Up, and by coach to William Coventry 1628-1686 (41); and there to talk with him a great deal with great content; and so to the James II King England, Scotland and Ireland 1633-1701 (35), having a great mind to speak to him about Tangier; but, when I come to it, his interest for my John Middleton 1st Earl Middleton 1608-1674 (61) is such that I dare not. So to the Treasury chamber, and then walked home round by the Excise Office, Aldersgate Street, Aldersgate, having by private vows last night in prayer to God Almighty cleared my mind for the present of the thoughts of going to Deborah Willet 1650-1678 (18) at Greenwich, which I did long after. I passed by Guildhall, Cheapside, which is almost finished, and saw a poor labourer carried by, I think, dead with a fall, as many there are, I hear. So home to dinner, and then to the office a little, and so to see my William Brouncker 2nd Viscount Brounckner 1620-1684 (49), who is a little ill of the gout; and there Abigail Williams Actress told me that she heard that my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) was going into France this year, which I did not deny, if I can get time, and I pray God I may. But I wondering how she come to know it, she tells me a woman that my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) spoke to for a maid, did tell her so, and that a lady that desires to go thither would be glad to go in her company. Thence with my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) abroad, with our coach, most pleasant weather; and to Hackney, and into the Hackney Marshes, Hackney, where I never was before, and thence round about to Old Ford and Stratford-le-Bow, Stepney; and coming through the latter home, there being some young gentlewomen at a door, and I seeming not to know who they were, my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) jealousy told me presently that I knew well enough it was that damned place where Deborah Willet 1650-1678 (18) dwelt, which made me swear very angrily that it was false, as it was, and I carried [her] back again to see the place, and it proved not so, so I continued out of humour a good while at it, she being willing to be friends, so I was by and by, saying no more of it. So home, and there met with a letter from Captain Silas Taylor 1624-1678 (44), and, with it, his written copy of a play that he hath wrote, and intends to have acted. — It is called “The Serenade or Disappointment,” which I will read, not believing he can make any good of that kind. He did once offer to show Henry Harris Actor 1634-1704 (35) it, but Henry Harris Actor 1634-1704 (35) told him that he would judge by one Act whether it were good or no, which is indeed a foolish saying, and we see them out themselves in the choice of a play after they have read the whole, it being sometimes found not fit to act above three times; nay, and some that have been refused at one house is found a good one at the other. This made Captain Silas Taylor 1624-1678 (44) say he would not shew it him, but is angry, and hath carried it to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Convent Garden, and he thinks it will be acted there, though he tells me they are not yet agreed upon it. But I will find time to get it read to me, and I did get my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) to begin a little to-night in the garden, but not so much as I could make any judgment of it. So home to supper and to bed.

Up, and to several places doing business, and then home to dinner, and then my Elizabeth de St Michel 1640-1669 (28) and I and John Pepys by coach to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Convent Garden, and saw “The Spanish Curate” revived, which is a pretty good play, but my eyes troubled with seeing it, mightily. Thence carried them and Richard Gibson, who met me at my William Brouncker 2nd Viscount Brounckner 1620-1684 (49) with a fair copy of my petition, which I thought to shew the James II King England, Scotland and Ireland 1633-1701 (35) this night, but could not, and therefore carried them to the Hyde Park, where they had never been, and so home to supper and to bed. Great the news now of the French taking St Domingo, Dominican Republic, Caribbean, in Spaniola, from the Spaniards, which troubles us, that they should have it, and have the honour of taking it, when we could not.
