This chapter investigates the principles that shaped the service of the ‘public man’ in early Stuart Cheshire and the ways in which this influenced local government. It also explores the archetype of the ‘godly magistrate’ and the culture wars waged by such men, in alliance with puritan ministers, against profane and ungodly practices.
