QueenVictoria's Visit To Crieff in 1842
“ rebels “ by , in most cases, Presbyterian clerics , it is clear that there was considerable support in this area for the Rising . The list of Jacobite prisoners has been published and part was included in my previous Blog . Crieff and Strathearn worthies like the local doctor and the post master were some of the ones who took up arms as well as a host of weavers , farmers and farm workers . Most of the local lairds were Jacobite sympathisers and as a consequence their lands were forfeited by the Hanoverian Government . The Act of Proscription passed in 1746 included a new section, which became known as the Dress Act, banned the wearing of "the Highland Dress", use of bagpipes and Highland music and song. Provision was also included to protect those involved in putting down the rebellion from lawsuits. Measures to prevent children from being "educated in disaffected or rebellious principles" included a requirement for school prayers for the King and Royal family.
