This chapter explores the petitioning campaign in defence of bishops of January–February 1641 launched by Sir Thomas Aston. It investigates the ways in which this helped to stymie the hopes for a national settlement around the establishment of modified episcopacy that John Ley, in conjunction with allies at Westminster and in the shire, was promoting in the late winter and early spring of 1641.
