Nonjurors 

English nonjurors were deprived of their livings and gradually declined in number and influence. The last nonjuring bishop was Charles Booth, who died in 1805. Bishop Thomas Ken (1637-1711), one of the original five nonjurors, wrote the famous doxology, "Praise God, from whom all blessings flow." William Law (1686-1761), a nonjuring priest, wrote the devotional manual, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life (1728).
