Short Note This is a short note

The Anglican Church in Wales had had a significant role in invoking support for the Royalist cause in the two recent civil wars between Parliament and King Charles I. Parliament now appointed a Commission for the Propagation of the Gospel in Wales, which had two main aims. One was to find those clergy hostile to the new regime, who still might stir up animosity, and deprive them of their livings. The only was to support the existing Puritan ministers, and reinforce their work with additional Puritan missionaries.
