Rabbling Act

Resource Toolbox

a law passed by the Scottish Parliament, in 1698, to prevent disturbance and riots at the settlement of ministers. The Episcopalians in the North rabbled the Presbyterians, especially on thle lav of an ordination; for they did not like to see their incumbents supplanted. So violent were their measures that the legislature had thus to interfere against them. (See REVOLUTION SETTLEMENT).
