For over a century, the term ‘Restoration Settlement’ has been used to denote the legislation of 1660–2. Yet it is a misnomer, for there were two settlements in these years, of different character and produced by different groups of men working in different circumstances. This chapter discusses the first settlement. The legal procedure of the first settlement carried on alongside the changes in personnel and to both government and Parliament the most important part of this was the Bill of Indemnity and Oblivion.

Keywords:   Restoration Settlement, Charles II, Parliament, Bill of Indemnity and Oblivion
