Jacobite rising of 1745

There is evidence that the local villages of Whittle le Woods, Brindle, and the surrounding area had some involvement with the Jacobite rising of 1745 and subsequently its defeat, led by Charles Edward Stuart, also well known as Bonnie Prince Charlie

Pro and anti-Jacobite sympathies were not far away even in 1747
